Beautifully restored and transformed Dominican convent furnished with understated good taste. The staff was extremely helpful, courteous and attentive. Breathtaking view of Taormina and the sea. Luxurious garden. Breakfast buffet was the best we've ever experienced. A must. No
I enjoyed my stay at the Victoria Palace Hotel immensely. The front desk staff was very accomodating particulary with tourist sites, transportation, dining, etc. The location was excellent with many bus lines just a short walk away. A mini coffee maker would have been a nice touch!
It was a lovely hotel. It is elegant and comfortable. The elevators are very small
Check in was very smooth, room was exactly what was represented, junior suite was very spacious and nice, good value for money, convenient to metro
The hotel staff was very helpful and kind,, and they tried to accommodate your needs. The location was ok.
Loved the shower and bathroom. Bed was also good. No real free TV channels available
The view from our room was beautiful, the location was close to everything. Appreciate the security since being down town elevators only worked with room key. For someone who does travel solo at times this was a nice peace of mind. Staff was wonderful and accommodating.
Staff spoke English and French professionally. Hotel was clean and no non-sense. I don't like how city taxes are not included in the initial hotel price. This is more a problem with French regulation than with the particular hotel. All hotels in France seem to do this.
Clean large rooms, friendly staff Wifi was tough to navigate, but worked well.
Very nice hotel! Had a specious room (at leats for Paris), Provides fast internet access (both WIFI and cable). Because the hotel is fairly new, the equipment was so too. Excellent breakfast buffet. Will come again.
Cant beat the location for access to transit and dining out.
It was easy to access transportation and move around the city. The rooms were too warm with no A/C. The street next to the windows were too noisy to open the window to cool the room.
Small and modern hotel with good service. No free wireless internet.
The hotel is very stylish and chique in a fantastic location in the centre of Montparnasse. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was beautiful. The breakfast looked a bit sparse and expensive, so we gave it a miss. The noise from the street cleaners and bottle bank emptiers was very loud!
The location is good, 200 m far from the underground stattion of Edgar. The area is full of bar and restaurant where is possible to have the "petit dejeuner", the breakfast for 5/6 euros. The lights in the room where not enought, it was difficult to see inside my bag! The breakfast is crazily expensive (21 euros/head!) When we arrived they gave us a room with 2 bads instead of 1 double bad, and i had to ask for it and they gave us a new room.
All of the above, plus location and the breakfast.
Staff was very nice No
modern design, clean rooms substandard breakfast in small, unpleasant room in the basement
problem with car parking
hotel stuffs are helpfull elevator is very slow
Staff where fantastic, giving advice and organizing outings/things we wished to do (even before we had arrived my wife had contact then and they organized dinner reservations at our favorite restaurant and a night out). we where in europe for a month and this hotel although was the most expensive was the least impressive (i think that might be Paris hotels in general though)
Nice sized room, pleasant staff, location ok, close to trains & quiet, good internet access & air conditioning Standard room rates a bit high for location & quality; also high charge for breakfast
Everything was excellent
the comfortobility and its closest to the center there was just a hot water in bath, no cold one
spacious room and bath. cleanliness and good service Not very central.
Large room with excellent full bath. The hotel is convenient to Gare Montparnasse, St germain des pres. The hotel itself is lovely, old style. Will return. Everything hunky dory.
Good and helpful staff, nice room, comfortable bed
Location. It was a convenient walk (20 minutes?) to museums; shopping was nearby The hotel had no restaurant. Also, the small bar had no bartender one night during my stay, so I could not get a glass of wine to sip while I worked on my computer.
Clean rooms, good pricing, good location Electronic card key lock, all keys had to be reprogrammed due to booking inconsistencies.
the location was excellent, how the room was furnished and its atmosphere.
Location was ideal, and great breakfast. Room was quiet. Except for the Barman, the staff were excellent. The room was pretty basic, TV channels useless for non French speakers, and getting a drink in the bar nearly impossible, either because nobody was there, or it had closed early!
The location is good - within meters of the Gaite metro (line 13) and a short walk from the Montparnasse railway station. Service and facilities are at par with Parisian hotels available at significantly lower prices. I was mislead by the good reviews on this site. Maybe I was just unlucky with the room. It was #104.
The Location is good and the staff are freindly Nothing
breakfast too expensive
Noise from the road
Excellent staff and the hotel is clean and modern. Good location with nice resturants and theaters nearby.
Nearness of the metro Room was too hot at night with no control over temperature; maid walked in without knocking or announcing; towel warmer did not work; new internet password needed daily - not explained at check in; only one elevator worked
The location was very close to the major attractions in Paris. Rooms were small but clean and newly renovated. The parking was for compact cars only. The fire alarm went off at 0300 in the morning for almost two consecutive hours.
Availability of triple room. Breakfast included Room tight.
quiietness inside the hotel, approximate to public transortations
The room size was good, comfortable beds, shower and bath and two sinks were great and the buffet breakfast. There were cafes nearby. The separat toillette had an offensive sewer smell.
Close to a metro station and easy to find. Very limited facilities, very small room, gave the impression of being run on a budget
The location was safe and convenient, front desk personnel was polite and friendly, the room was clean, the bathroom was designed nicely, the breakfast was reasonably priced (and basic). Small room (seems to be the norm in Paris)
Staff were very accommodating, location was excellent for our needs.Hotel currently in final stages of renovations, very pleased with cleanliness of room. The rooms were small, but more than suitable for a short stay.
Nice room, convenient for metro, pleasant staff. The lift seems to be directly over a drain!!
My wife and I stayed in this hotel in November 2010 because it is conveniently located with respect to the apartment where our son and his wife live. However, Paris is a small city and this hotel is only 2km from Notre Dame and 2km from the Eiffel Tower, so it is pretty central. There are several Metro stations close by and, of course, the famous Paris bicycles. We really liked the hotel The staff were very friendly and spoke perfect English - they also put up with our attempts to converse with them in French. The hotel obviously has been recently renovated. Our room was nicely decorated, very clean with a modern bathroom and separate toilet. The room was fairly small but you don't come to Paris to sit in your hotel room! Good value. Nothing that we didn't like.
Convenient to Metro, restaurants. Room clean, quiet and comfortable.
Quiet and in a good location. The bedroom was on the 5th floor and the windows were sealed so as not to open.
The location of the hotel was excellent, and the ambience of a hotel this size was excellent
breakfast was 17 euros and werent told of this until checking out at 12 o'clock.
Would definitely return No
This hotel is nothing more than a room with bed.
- very clean rooms, good location, charming neighbourhood, very close to Metro, room rather small but not claustrphobic ( ok size for Paris) and decently decorated, flatscreen. Staff very unattent, first day we went for early dinner to the restaurant; it was empty and the employee saw us but just kept talking on his mobile so after 3 min we left;
good location ( near from Montparnasse station, 4 famous Montparnasse cafes), value for money, large enough.
Location, I did not realise there were so many adult video shops in the area
room and location wireless internet connection might be free
The beds were extremely comfortable. The room was simple but good sized. It faced onto a back courtyard and so was very quiet. Both my husband and I commented to each other than we slept extremely well the two nights we spend there. Location was excellent. Room was a bit spartan in terms of places to sit.
The hotel itself was ok, but the location was really perfect. It's a great place to stay if you just need someplace clean and basic to sleep while touring the city. The staff were not overly friendly and our room had an odd set up (with bunk beds in it and the tiolet was in a room (closet!) separate from the bathroom) but otherwise we had no complaints at all!
location dining facilities
Good location to metro, stores, and tourist stops. The air conditioner didn't work very well.
It is a very stylish and attractive hotel. The room (plain - and with empty mini-bar!) does not really merit four stars, though it was comfortable, quiet and with a charming outlook on the hotel garden. I very positively enjoyed the stay No - it is attractive, friendly and easy to use
Perfect location, price is ok, very nice design of hotel.
Good value and good location for subway and train connections. Hotel is on a quiet street which helps sleep. Room layout is awkward.
The location is very good close to Montparnasse Tower and Gare area and just 200 mts from Edgard Quinet Metro. The rooms were very quiet and the view in the back in nice as well. You have lots of coffee shops, restos, and boulangeries next to the hotel. When i arrived the air conditioning did make a nose like the engines of a Jet Airplain, I went downstairs to the reception and the attendant there with cynical french humour said to me "vous pouvez l'arrete" meaning you can close the A/C if you dont want the noise....DAH !!! but anyway, the following day i was told the air conditioning in the hotel did not work at all, so the 3 days we were out of A/C. They were nice enough to chop about 30% of the bill. Other than the guy who was a smart.a...they reception were ok. The other issue is the bathroom is divided in two and the toilette does not have a fan extractor.
entrance to the hotel,their courtyard was dirty-papers,strange...
location, quite place It is my third stay and I noted that hotel conditions became worse and worse. Rooms conditions, sanitary places must be renovated. Heating is poor.
position of the hotel entrance too small; lift too small
Centre of paris
Location Noise from fittings & other guests
Comfortable hotel in a central location with easy acess to eating out and transport
Well located and public parking nearby They have renovated rooms, which you can see on the website, but in case you book you'll get the non renovated ones. These are old and totally outdated! Big discrepancy between the room types. In case you manage to get another room they charge extra!
The breakfast buffet was very good. Just the right selection of food. Internet worked well. Would like the ability to print material at a work station. Hotel staff were able to print boarding passes for us. Room was a bit small and we would have really enjoyed a room with a balcony.
It is very well located. The doors od the wardrobe were destroyed, and the aspect were not nice.
The hotel was very clean and well kept, and was in a central location with lots going on. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The hotel provided free internet access and the receptionist even printed off our online flight boarding passes on his own computer. Excellent hotel!
the location was great, the room very clean, the staff very helpfull and nice. did not eat breakfast - too expensive - nice places to have breakfast around. room in the back of hotel - very quite. I stayed in a supirior room did not see others. I chose it because of the price and location and I got a very good value for my money.
Nice location, room was clean, internet access was available Room was small, unfortunately all Paris hotel rooms are rather small.
Excellent staff, clean and comfortable rooms, good facilities and superb location. The only mirrors in the hotel room were in the bathroom which made getting ready a bit more time consuming.
The staff are charming and the hotel is in the centre of Montparnasse. Vastly over priced.
location, hotel honesty bar, ambience and decor, helpful staff no
Friendly and helpful staff. Free internet access. Afternoon tea and coffee in the lounge. For a small street it was surprisingly noisy.
The staff was knowledgeable, spoke English well and were always ready to give advice.
It was a placed in a very good location, near the metro stops, near to shops and restaurants so making it very accessible to the city centre. Staff were very helpful and spoke very good English, would recomment to anyone, and would to back. Clean room and good sized ensuite, very adequate for our needs, cot in our room for our toddler also. Could not recommend it enough. Breakfast was pricey but we choose to go to a nearby cafe which was very good.
We were pleased overall, but we were especially grateful for the very helpful staff.
reception can speak english :-) / Breakfast is very nice parking is too narrow :-)
The helpful and professional attitude of the staff Room was small
Staff was most helpful, a real strength. Honors bar, not dining facility but many great places within the block. Proximity to the intersection of Respail and Montparness boulevards is a real asset. Not exactly 'didn't like' but rooms were a bit small, not unusual for an urban European hotel. Some wear and tear but nothing serious.
romantic decor ,very clean , helpful staffs, new appliances , free tv internet in your room! , strategic neighbourhood , easy access everywhere. small room , but sigh ... this is paris ...
The staff is wonderful and helpful! The sheets and pillow cases were not clean sometimes.
Décor, staff, good location, quiet rooms. Really enjoyed it. Price of the internet (hoe much??!) and breakfast.
boutique feel, good quality finishes, quiet location but very centrally located for montparnasse/st germain des pres etc bathroom tends to flood when using mixer shower over bath as shower guard too short, not even covering 1/2 the length of the bath.
very friendly atmosphere, very clean and comfortable. Great location. the room was a bit small
Convenient for touring Paris,between three metro stations, restaurants near by, very friendly hotel. Breakfast was a bit expensive but lots of it.
The staff were pleasant and very helpful.
Small rooms, a little expensive - but great location! Easy walk to St. Germain des Pres...
Beautiful rooms, small but perfectly formed! Small compared to a uk hotel room but for Paris - totally normal. Very well decorated, nice toiletries, daily room servicing, bathrobes, comfortable bed. Wonderful, helpful staff. great location for St Germain, St Michel, Montpernasse - so close to tube/underground. No complaints! I absolutely loved the hotel - the staff are wonderful, my only gripe would be feeling the tube/underground from our room! It did interrupt my sleep but that's the price you pay for such a central hotel. Location on the cusp of St Germain de Pres and Montpernasse was perfect.
Excellent staff; fresh flowers as decoration, clean and tidy rooms. Better choice of breakfast food is required. We missed fresh vegetables, hot food.
good location, polit staff, clean small room
The staff were extremely helpful It was very noisy - there is a club nearby with music until 4am. My room smelt of smoke and I had to leave the window open, but then it was too noisy to sleep.
Good position; helpfull staff The room is very small.
the kindness of the receptionist and his help with my bags when I arrived.
Excellent position of the hotel, really near to Montparnasse railway station, Boulevard Montparnasse. A bit more efficient soundproof window would be better, but it was rather good.
Very good service. Cleanness. Comfortable room from clean bathroom. Perfect position. Small problem from setting temperature under shower.
Location, staff were friendly Room was very small
good location to where we needed to be.
Stayed 3 nights. As a tourist, the hotel location was very good to access the train station and metro with good selection of food options close by at the end of each day. Room (small) & bathroom (roomy) were neat and clean. Had street view, unacceptable street noise if windows are open, acceptably quiet if windows are kept close. Staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast- eggs (hardboiled & scrambled) were on the warmed up side instead of cooked. Presentation was nice.
very kind personnel, clean room, and wifi (using orange) worked for me a little bit noisy airconditioner
Location Very small room for price.
The staff were extremely kind and friendly - very unusual (in my experience) for a central Parisian hotel. The location is excellent - two minutes walk from the metro and Gare Montparnasse. This place is absolutely fine for a short business stay. The rooms are not spectacular by any means, but they are adequate. The bathroom was fine - very clean. The room was slightly odd although it is difficult to say exactly why. You can tell they have done some refurbishing, but there is still a sense of the old run-down feeling left over...
cleanliness of room and reception staff no tea & coffee in room
good location, friendly english speaking staff, nice clean bathrooms tiny lifts, boring breakfast
Everything was very good. Good location close to shopping street, plenty of reataurants around with quite goof French food. Close to all famouse places of Paris. Hotel clean, not noisy, not looking to that that windows go out to bussy street. Everything is good Just price I think is too big.
Good location. Lots of stores and restaurants. Good bed and shower. Helpful staff. All Paris hotel rooms ave very small, and this was no exception. We faced the back, which was very quiet.
Excellent location, a very convenient metro station nearby the door, rooms though a little small well decorated, nice and helpful staff Paying awfully expensive Wifi
The staff was very kind and helpful
Friendly helpful staff, good location, clean bathroom Overpriced for standard of accomodation. Room is far too small to be advertised as a Twin Room. No air conditioning.
The central location - just a cross the road from Montparnasse Tower - easy acces to Metro, and a lot of good shops, bars and restaurant just outside the hotel. Not luxury, but nice and clean. A little bit worn-out, small rooms.
Location, Metro station was right out the front door, took us everwhere we wanted to go. I misunderstood the desk staff when I was told there was complimentary drinks in the hotel frig. Complimentary in the states means "free" ....I know now that it means a full compliment.
Small, clean, secure and well located. Rumble - noise from metro.
