Villa Du Maine

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was indeed an interesting contrast to see a rather dilapidated tiny room with old and dirty-looking carpet, old furniture (if any to speak of you might actually fall off the single bed as it is somewhat tilted), old painted walls (but the bathroom looks as though it was recently renovated) fitted with a flat screen TV (but no cable so only french channels), in-room safe and a small fridge a rarity in 2-star hotels in Paris). The high point of my top floor (5th) room (room #50) is it has two small balcony-windows to enjoy a decent view. My stay could still have been plaisant if it were not for thin walls and a definite lack of soundproofing (plus loads of inconsiderate guests as the hotel seemed fully booked). Location, though not central, is still acceptable a mere 10 -13 minute walk to Alesia metro station. I hope I will not have to book such a hotel again.

This is your typical bare-bones budget hotel, one step up from a hostel. The location is pretty decent: you are in Montparnasse area, 5 minutes walk from the Metro stations Plaisance and Alesia. Paris subway is reliable enough to get you pretty much anywhere you'd care to go within the city in 30 minutes or less, so this is a plus. The general area is decent and mostly clean, though there are occasional bums you may run into, but they aren't aggressive. There are a lot of places to eat nearby (both eat-in and take-out). Also nearby is a laundromat, good for those traveling light or backpacking. The room itself is very small, and lacks an air conditioner, which is no doubt awful if the weather is hot. The hotel staff keeps the place clean, but it is in quite a bit of disrepair - wallpaper peels, carpet is worn, tile is shabby and everything looks like it seriously needs an update. Still, it's clean enough and the bed is comfortable enough if you only need to come back to the room to sleep and spend most of your time out in Paris. If you are looking for a clean, no-frills place to crash for a low price, this is an option for you. But be prepared to put up with shabby and outdated rooms, and don't expect a posh romantic getaway.

The first nite spent in a tiny, narrow room, clean except for the carpet. Bed very clean, good TV, bathroom clean, but so small you can't (literally) turn around in it, though shower is quite big enuf. View, rather dingy court and backs of other buildings. Closet paper ripped, cheapest of cheap Goodwill night table, desk is a shelf, armoire also Goodwill vintage, but smells ok (not musty). WOrst was elevator right next to room, and THIN walls, so could hear every word spoken in room on other side. Check out your room before settling - you may have a choice of rooms, if hotel's not full. Second nite better - the kind man at desk upgraded me to a bigger room, much more comfy, bed very clean and comfortable, and bathroom more spacious. Great location, close to tram and bus lines. Quiet enuf at night. Good for short stay, small budget.

The hotel was nice for its value. It was close to metro/tram stations, so if you bought a day pass, you could see the major landmarks without problems. There are plenty of little cafes around the area so you didn't have to walk far to find food if you wanted to keep it local.

checked in a dilapidated room with modern amenities: what an interesting contrast
