“Would love to go back.”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

This was a return trip to Paris (the first since we got engaged) to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Could not have picked a better place! For North American readers, if you like the ubiquitous beige and white American chain hotels with marble and a fountain in the lobby - this is not it. If you want an authentic French hotel that is clean, comfortable, friendly and reasonable priced, I don't think you could do better.
This place is certainly quirky - narrow spiral stairs, a tiny elevator (one person and a suitcase is about all it will take....) and slightly strange decor. For us, it all added to the 'authentic' experience.
By most European standards, the room was a little small. Tiny by North American standards. But again, this is quite typically Parisian and we very quickly adapted to being in a smaller space.
Not all the staff were knowledgable about tourist matters, but all were friendly and helpful. We managed to arrive without our usual collection of power adaptors but were presented with a huge selection and invited to borrow whatever we needed.
Breakfast (at extra cost) was good value with a wide variety of breads, cereals and beverages. Again, Americans looking for steak and eggs will be disappointed - this is Paris. We started each day with an espresso and fresh croissants with ham, cheese or very high quality preserves. Staff were always on hand to replenish supplies; there were only ever just enough fresh croissants and running out meant a trip to the bakery down the street for one of the staff for more.
WiFi is free, but in our room (48) only really strong in the bathroom. So it that's important, maybe ask for a room with a good signal. I imagine lower floors are better since it works very well on the main floor.
Location is superb, a few (maybe 5) minutes walk to Pernety Metro station. Most of the main Paris sights are only 2 or 3 Metro rides away. We even spent a day at Disneyland - took about an hour to get there by Metro and train.
We were there for 6 full days and could not possibly have eaten at all the options within a couple of blocks of the hotel.
If we ever get back, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for one with good WiFi if that is important to you.

This charming little hotel in a quiet neighborhood just might be the best value in Paris. Everything is fresh and clean - the whole hotel smells nice! The beds are super comfortable and with nice fluffy pillows - perfect to come home and relax after a long day of sightseeing. They offer free umbrellas when it rains (which it did a few times during our stay.) The Pernety metro station is conveniently located 2 blocks away, but you should know that most major sites require a connection at a larger station like Montparnasse Bienvenue with hallways that seem to go on forever - just make sure you have really comfortable walking shoes. Didier, the night desk attendant, is the friendliest guy ever - he really went out of his way to make us feel special by offering tea and cookies and engaging us in conversation. We found the wifi connection to be a bit spotty in room 36 and were told the lobby has a better connection. There's not much space to hang your clothes - just a small bar with a few hangers in the bathroom - a suggestion might be to add another bar or a few hooks in the room. All in all, we loved our stay! Thank you!

The staff is super friendly.They speak French and English and Italian. The hotel is lovely. Colourful and super clean. The wifi connection was working properly everywhere, the neighbourhood full of amazing Boulangerie ;)
It's the best hotel I've been until now. The rooms are cute and super clean. The atmosphere is relaxing. When I'll go back to Paris, I'll go back straight there.

Room Tip: There are some rooms connected with an internal door. If you go with friends or family, ask for one...

We booked this for my wife's 50th Birthday and the hotel couldn't have been better. It is a funky, friendly and very reasonably priced hotel. The rooms and bathroom are small, but this was made clear in the promotional material and is the case for most hotels in Paris - it certainly didn't bother us. Perhaps best of all was the staff, especially the night staff. Didier was so helpful and friendly - he really made our stay something special!

Room Tip: Be prepared to carry your bags upstairs as the lift is tiny...

Name is program, lovely Hotel with nice small rooms but very clean. Helpful employees, conversations in english without any Problems. Metro Station is only 2 minutes away and you can reach every interesting Point in less than 10 minutes. Due to good windows the rooms are really quiet in the Night. Enjoyed every Minute during the stay there!

We recently spent 3 nights at the La Maison Montparnasse over NYE. The hotel is in a great location and there are many lovely shops and restaurants along nearby street - Rue Raymond Losserand. The staff were friendly and helpful the reception desk is manned 24hrs.The wifi connection was strong but they seem to have limited connections so when they are all in use you are unable to log-in until another user logs out which was frustrating. The room we staying in was the most budget type and were clean and well decorated but small, my partner at just over 6ft could not close the door to the toilet once he was inside! Overall we were very happy with our stay and will return if we are ever in Paris.

This is one of my favourite hotels in Paris. The rooms and the entire hotel are quite tiny but this adds to the intimate atmosphere. The colourful decor, the set-up of the rooms, the cleanliness, the breakfast and most of all the friendly, helpful staff make you feel really at ease. Breakfast is good and there is a little cute terrace to have your breakfast outside.
It's in a nice corner of Montparnasse too and I can definitely recommend it.
