Recent guest reviews
Stayed two nights in the hotel, great location, very close to the subway station, there is boulangeries, supermarkets and nice restaurants nearby! Had a little awkward situation in our check-in, when we went inside the room there was a luggage inside from the previous guest. Also found some old pizza in the fridge, and a pizza box outside the window. The room, besides that was clean. The room we got was tiny, but everything very cosy. Nice bathroom. The breakfast had the most amazing croissant i ever had, and everything else was super tasty and delicious. I don't speak french, and the staff that didn't speak english so well, were always very kind to try to understand! Above all, would stay again and recommend!
The hotel is located in a very quiet and convenient neighborhood. The streets were filled with bakeries, supermarkets, small cafes, pubs, and restaurants of all varieties. The Metro was within steps of the hotel. So, for late nights in the center of Paris it was convenient to come out of the Metro within steps of your hotel. Very friendly staff, but a few did not speak English or English well which made for a little bit of a mix up at times. Other than that, the staff was friendly. The hotel was clean and bright especially in the lobby area. There were very few perks, such as coffee or water that was not openly free. It was off to the side along with the things that you had to pay for, so I did not know it was free (still don't). Everything seemed to have a price, I stayed at another hotel within Paris (vicinity) that had quite a few perks and was less money. I never used the restaurant, but smelled the food as I had to go downstairs. The food smelled good, but who pays for breakfast in the hotel when you can eat at one of the many cafes and choices right down the street. The breakfast should have been free. The room we stayed in was the "Family Room". The room consisted of a King size bed and bunk beds. I really liked the set up of the room which allowed for privacy of both parents and kids. I did not, however, like the darkness of the room. The decor should be changed to a lighter color to make up for the lack of view to brighten the room, also would help it look bigger. I felt sleepy and lazy all the time in there because of the lack of light. The decor was a dated and the rug a little run down, but it was very clean. It seems as though the bathroom was updated but the rest was not. The TV took an Engineering Degree to figure out, but once on it was the search for channels that spoke English that was the kicker. I was not a fan of the placing of our room near the staircase. Small step to the side before opening the door and you are falling down 4 flights of stairs. It was right next to a stair case that had no protective gate or something on the opening for small kids. SOOO watch the baby or the toddler when going and coming out of the room...All in all it was a comfortable room for a few nights, but I would not have stayed long term.
This hotel was pretty good , it had a 2nd floor in our room! Beds were comfortable & it also included a wet bar fridge , all for free! Nice & dark curtains, so it stayed dark while we slept. Checkin was easy, but there was no parking at all. The area is so packed & crowded, it was a bit odd how the hotel blends in to the shops. We got 1/2 price breakfast for being a platinum member, bonus. Unfortunately, it wasn't the greatest , very minimal items, lucky we only paid half price. Better for guests who don't have a vehicle. There website needs to state, no parking as well.The lift ( elevator) can only carry 2 people at a time when luggage, very tiny.
We chose the hotel because it was located near to a Metro station but still on a walkable route to the centre. We had the Mezzanine room for the 4 of us. It was perfect. It gave the kids their own space whilst still being in the same room. It was reasonably priced, the breakfast is quite expensive, but we filled up on the first day, this allowed us to explore the area and plan our breakfasts for the next 2 days. The patisseries/boulangeries on Rue Losserand serve the most delicious pastries and cakes. We would stay there again tomorrow. I would also recommend a visit to the Tour de Montparnasse, the view was incredible, we were able to ice skate at the top of the building, a moment none of us will forget.
We arrived around 20:00, got a very small room on the 5 th floor. Aircondition/heating didn't work and was not able to be adjusted. So the room was extremely warm all night through. Toilet did not flush and the bed was so short I was lying with my feet on the outside. And I'm not that tall just 187 cm. Breakfast was ok, but no refill of scrambled egg and bacon. The boiled egg was so over boiled that is was green inside. We notified about the toilet and the heat just after our arrival but nothing was done. I would not recommend this to anyone.
This hotel is in a safe neighborhood of Montparnasse and one can actually walk in the evening/nighttime. It felt like it was in the center of everything: about a 12 min drive to the Eiffel Tower, a 12 min walk to Les Catacombes, the Pernety Metro stop is a few mins walk from here, many places to eat in Avenue du Maine (about a 6 min walk). The hotel is good-looking, the bedroom is "smaller" than what I am used to (because I travel a lot), but had enough space for 3 people. The bathroom was a small for sure. The staff members were VERY helpful and friendly...and one of the best experiences was that they offered free hot chocolate, espresso, and capuccino everyday! It was winter when I visited, so it felt so great to come inside the hotel from a winter walk and sip on a hot chocolate. :) The housekeepers clean the room everyday, but a tip from me to you is to be out of the room earlier than noon so they will not wake you up and to guarantee that it will be cleaned.
Stayed in the hotel 3 nights due to my business trip. Location is quite OK - many small restaurants around as everywhere, staff nice (during breakfast, at the reception), rooms very small (but it's not anything atypical in Paris), breakfast fine - you find what you need.
Location: Near the metro station, the train station (with a few blocks of walking), and the bus from the airport also drops you off at that train station which makes getting to and from the airport easy A number of very good local restaurants nearby. Staff: Friendly and helpful. I really wanted to go see the "modern version" of Don Giovanni at the opera house. The website said the performance for the night was sold out, when the concierge called her people and they told her the tickets were sold out, but I told her how much I wanted to see that particular opera and asked her to call the opera house for me to confirm, she called and learned that there was a glitch on the website and there were still a handful of seats available. The performance was magically wonderful, and I couldn't thank Benedictine more for her hospitality, kindness, and helpfulness, Room: Functional, it is a bit small but it is Paris all the hotel rooms are small! The bathroom is bigger, and the beds are very comfortable. Overall, I would return to this hotel when I visit Paris next time.
A last minute change to a business trip had me arriving in Paris on a Sunday evening. After a taxi ride from CDG airport, a little traffic, and a few turns down the narrow streets we arrived at the hotel. My first introduction to the 'classic' French culture was having to wait at the check-in desk while a hotel patron argued with the host about something on his bill for about 10 minutes (not speaking French but catching a few words here-and-there, it sounded like a debate over beds in the room)--it was not too loud, a little animated, and mostly just entertaining as I watch the back-and-forth exchange. The host handled the debate well and the other patron at least seemed satisfied in the end (no hard feelings?). After I had my chance to check-in, I was given a 'large room' on the first floor, found by passing through a door marked with a stairs placard at the back of the small social lobby. Our host was polite and spoke English well, checking two of us in on a Sunday evening with reasonable efficiency. The room was definitely a classic, quaint, European-style accommodation. It had a large queen-size bed plus two doubles in a bunk-bed arrangement. There was a WC separate from a very modern and good-sized shower / wash room. The space included a small working desk combined with a clothes cabinet and was paired with a strong wifi connection for getting work done. European outlets at the desk and by the bed were convenient for both computer and mobile charging. Chocolates on the bed were and always will be a nice touch. The hotel is within walking distance of Gare Montparnasse (the train station), which was the reason for choosing this place for our one-night stay. We walked to dinner that evening, heading up Rue Raymond Losserand, Avenue du Maine, and Rue de la Gaite before settling on --Cafe de la Place-- for a nice, light dinner with wine. Overall a convenient stay with a nice room at a good price. Definitely a good place to rest-up for the night and I am sure a family with a couple of kids would love this room.
Pleasant check in, pleasant check out. The location is quite good, with laundry right across the street and plenty of places to eat nearby. The desk attendant in the later hours was cold and seemed put out when we asked for ice for a foot injury. Room was clean but smelled of cigarette smoke, despite it being a non-smoking hotel. On the first night, cigarette smoke blew through our air conditioning vent all night stinking up our room and clothes. Thankfully, the woman Sarah at the front desk helped to address this issue with kindness and the second night was smoke-free (though the smell lingered for our whole stay). Shower is small and cramped with a strange glass door that did little to keep the water contained. Too small for a 6 foot man to shower comfortably. Overall, it was just average and I would probably look elsewhere for our next visit to Montparnasse. The smoke issue was a real let down.
