It is what it is an inexpensive hotel. A little old and tired but ok. It is a very small hotel, like very small barely two people with one suitcase each fit in the elevator. I didn't like that when the offered to store my luggage before and after check out that it was not in a secured location
If you are going to travel by train from the Gare Montparnasse, the 3-star Best Western Hotel le Montparnasse in the 6th arrondissement, is a very convenient place to stay. Location is perfect. Within a two-block radius, you have the train station, metro stops, a covered shopping mall anchored by one of the two most well-known department stores in Paris, the shopping street Rue de Rennes, pharmacies, banks, post office, etc. There is a mini-mart just steps away and a larger market across the street that stays open late. The neighborhood is vibrant with many cafés and restaurants, some of which were made famous by artists of the 20th century. Also, you can take Le Bus Direct, #4 (the former Air France Shuttle) from CDG airport to the train station for about half of a taxi fare. If you don't want to walk the two blocks to the train station, the hotel can also arrange a shuttle back to the airport with pick up at the hotel. The cost for two people is 36 euros (compared to 60+ for a taxi). If you understand that personal space is defined differently in Europe, then you would be fine in this hotel. The hallways are narrow. The rooms are tiny but have everything: air conditioning, comfortable beds, a safe, and a small closet with about ten hangers. The bathroom is small but modern. Despite its size, it has a spacious shower area with both a rain and a hand-held shower head, and space for your toiletries, The staff is very courteous and accommodating. I speak fluent French but not my husband. They spoke English with him and were just as nice and helpful to him. They provided us with extra pillows, and even stored a big bag for us while we traveled to the southwest for 10 days. We've always asked for a room in the back side of the building. Amazingly enough, even with the window open, there is no traffic noise. It faces a courtyard with lots of greenery. You do hear the muffled sound of the metro, but that is the case nearly anywhere in Paris if you want to have the convenience of being near a metro stop. I have stayed in this hotel several times and will do so again. If you are taking trains from Montparnasse (or even if you are not), the location, as well as the very nice and accommodating personnel, can't be beat.
Shocked to find a Best Western hotel in Europe with such a lack of quality. First of all we are a family of 5 and were supposed to stay in adjacent rooms sadly there were no such rooms in this hotel, besides the rooms were really small even for Paris kind of Hotels. The other major issue was that the weather was kind of hot during our stay but the A/C didn't work, it was only for heating so we had to sleep with the window open with the constant noise of the Montparnasse traffic including constant police and ambulance sirens (very often by the way). Cleaning service was really bad by the way, some days I found no towels in the room. Never again
Walking out of the Best Western Le Montparnasse and seeing the Eiffel Tower was one of the best experiences of our Paris trip! There are several restaurants, subway stops, shops, and grocery locations very close (same block) to the hotel. The subways and train stations are all within a short walking distance that can get you to almost any tourist location quickly. The room is not large, but is on par with other European room sizes. The modern decor in the rooms is newer and the staff is friendly.
I choose the best western as it is a brand name, somewhere I could trust to be everything it said it was. My partner finds it uncomfortable to sleep unless the room temperature is low, either with air conditioning or a fan, one of the main reasons I booked this hotel. We were checked in and opened the room to a gust of hot air, immediately I opened the window and set upon the air conditioning unit but nothing kicked in. I rang reception and the kind gentleman came up, took a look, told us it would cool down and left saying if we needed to move rooms we could. Instead we decided to give the system a chance and headed out. We came back, room still hot and the traffic of the day still hadn't died down. All we could hear was police cars chasing up and down the street with sirens, traffic, people, rubbish collection lorries and that on top of the heat was unbearable! I asked for a fan which the gentleman on reception said he didn't have and advised the reason why the air conditioning wasn't working was because the fans had been turned off for winter. I'd like to add the temperature was 24c during the day and only dropping to around 20c at night, I would hardly call that winter conditions!
Stayed here for a quick weekend trip to Paris. Perfect location and walk to everything. We were booked for 2 nights and the staff bent over backwards to help us with a stolen passport. We ended up having to stay a third night and they were very accommodating. I definitely would stay there again.
Great location, close to train stations, shopping sites, and tourist places by a few metro stops. That was the best. Tiny rooms but nice for the time we spent inside. Price/quality relation is ok for Paris. Excellent service from Andres.
Check in was faultless and friendly. There are several supermarkets close by and a galleries Lafayette. In addition there are many restaurants of varying cuisines. If you need to get the bus back to CdeG it is about a 10 -15 minute walk. The breakfast was good with lots of coffee too! I would stay here again.
The rooms had all the facilities and amenities required, but were a little compact. We were only there for an overnight stay, but the staff went out of their way to help. The Hotel does have a small Breakfast Room for Continental Breakfasts, although there are plenty of places locally to eat, drink and shop.
