Marble floors, 19-century furniture, and warm colorful walls greet guests inside the Hotel Aviatic Saint Germain in Paris, an elaborate boutique venue and the former home of Marquise de Maintenon, wife of King Louis XIV. Find inspiration in this Left Bank retreat where musicians, painters and writers have hung out since 1856. Accommodations range from the Triple Prestige, to the Prestige and Traditional, and although architect F. Foucaut made renovations to the building, its interiors are still rich with chic Parisian heritage. Parking in the area can be a challenge, but the Hotel Aviatic offers drivers garage space (daily charges apply).

Neighborhood

The Hotel Aviatic Saint Germain's location in the Left Bank is certainly an attractive feature. Watch the world go by from nearby Parisian cafes with a sweet pastry and a cup of French coffee, browse historic book shops, and explore museums and galleries like Musee du Montparnasse and Musee Bourdelle. Less than half a mile away is the Tour Montparnasse climb the tower at sunset to really allow the 'City of Light' to capture your imagination. Souvenirs ranging from kitschy to well-crafted can be found at the renowned department store, Le Bon Marche. In essence, Saint Germain is a university district with a youthful ambience and a historic heart.

comfortable stay

We traveled to Paris for our honeymoon. The Aviatic Hotel was a short walking distance to the metro. Staff was very helpful and respectful. Rooms were small but clean. Size of the room was not a problem since we were out of the room for the majority of the day.

Weekend Away

Late arrival on a friday evening only to find hotel had no record of the booking. Entrance was just as in the photos - very smart - but the decor did not extend to our small room at the back of the hotel. Total cost £450 incl breakfast for 2 for 2 nights.

Very helpful staff

Hotel Aviatic was a very pleasant hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms were small but very clean and stylish. The hotel was somewhat hard to find because the address doesn't need the Rue de Rennes street mentioned. Location was great for the Open bus tour route (which is highly recommended) but too far from the attractions to walk.

"Away from the Tourist Trade"

Located in the SW section of the 6th arrondisement on the Left Bank sits the Hotel Aviatic. Ten minutes from the Gare Montparnasse( Air France bus drop off/pick up for CDG airport) A small but comfortable hotel with a very helpful and gracious staff. Close to several Metro stations that grant you quick and efficent access to all of the city. Easy walking to neighborhood cafes, restaurants and shops. If your French is not the best, do not worry, Parisians are gracious and helpful. English is widely understood but knowing a few French phrases (especially pertaining to hello, goodbye and thank you) goes a long way.

Very comfortable

Other Paris hotels I've used before have provided a room that was not much more than a bed and a bathroom: i.e., a space where you don't want to spend any more time than is absolutely necessary,. The Aviatic was much, much nicer than that. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I spent 8 nights here and was very happy indeed.

Simply Lovely

The hotel was exactly how it looks in the pictures, charming and inviting. It is located close to several subway stations and within walking distance of the Luxembourg Gardens. The area around the hotel has lots of delicious Patisseries and Creperies. We only stayed for 2 days, and that wasn't nearly enough. I would absolutely stay there again and recommend it to friends. The only negative point was the relatively rude man at the front desk. He encompasses all the Parisian stereotypes.
