This Left Bank Paris hotel is close to the Montparnasse train station, the RER train and metro station, and the airport bus (Denfert Rochereau); shops in Montparnasse Tower are 800 meters away.
Pros: For the price, I was impressed. Definitely a budget hotel, so don't expect luxury. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom has a lot of mirrors which was nice. The employees at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. TV in the room was nice to have in the evening.Cons: The elevator was extremely slow and left me waiting for a long time and the street below my window was kind of noisy in the morning. The hotel location is not near the major Paris attractions so you have to spend a lot of time on the metro.
A nice stay with one unfortunate customer service Pros: The bed was comfortable and the room was pretty. We had a balcony on the fourth floor which was a nice touch. Also the shower is big for a European hotel. Cons: The light switches are a complicated puzzle consisting of two main switches that must be turned on at all times in order for any other night and a couple of plugs to work. We found one of the main switches on the first night. Unfortunately, on the last night we returned from dinner to discover none of our lights would turn on. When we requested help from the front desk, a guy came up, tried a few switches and basically told us "sorry about your luck."
The next day I addressed the situation with the front desk and that's when we discovered the OTHER main switch that has to be turned on at all times. So when I asked the lady at the desk why the man from last night didn't fix it, her response was "well, he's new." Not a great answer. We didn't even recieve an apology. A disappointing end to an otherwise pleasant stay. Hopefully they will train new employees better in the future.
Worth returningPros: Extremely comfortable bed and convenient location Cons: Small bathroom-even by European standards
