“Beautiful hotel, can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We stayed at this beautiful hotel in August 2013 for three nights after reading the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. I could not recommend this hotel enough, it is beautifully decorated, our 'Traditional' room was spotless with a fantastic shower. The staff were welcoming, polite, helpful and friendly. We were able to store our luggage in the luggage room after checking out as we weren't catching the Eurostar until later that evening, meaning we didn't have to wheel our cases around Paris all day, a definite plus! Montparnasse station is a short walk away so you can easily explore the city on the Metro.

We did not have breakfast at the hotel, but there is a lovely boulangerie just a short walk away which sells delicious pastries.

During our stay in Paris, my boyfriend proposed and we're coming back to the Aviatic Hotel this August for our honeymoon, and we can't wait!

Me and my friend throroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at this hotel.
We arrived just before midnight and was welcomed by a lovely gentleman. We were very well looked after, and the staff could not have done anything more - extremely helpful.

The location was perfect - pretty central and everything was within walking distance.
Our room was ridiculously clean and comfortable.
Sadly, we didn't get to try their breakfast buffet :( it smelt really good though!
Such a beautiful hotel. I would highly recommend it!

Weekend trip. location of the hotel, close to montparnasse, is very useful for metro etc.
our room was very acceptable... We booked a 'tradition' room and were then upgraded to a 'prestige' room... Though interestingly we were first asked to pay a premium to do so... After we turned it down, we were offered the prestige room anyway!

we didn't take the breakfast option. There are a few other places nearby where you can get a morning crepe, croissant or even mcdonalds near montparnasse.

The service at the hotel was good. Young Alexandre was very helpful and he gave a very pleasant welcome on arrival. Sadly not all staff were as friendly and smiling. This would have added an extra shine to the hotel overall... But certainly we'd go here again.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your kind comment and for taking time to write about your experience.
When we have the opportunity, we like to upgrade our guests. Usually there is a fee for this.

It’s a shame you didn’t have breakfast at the hotel. Next time we hope that you will have time to try it.

We are happy that you enjoy the service of our team. I let Alexandre know about your comment; he would like to thank you for your sympathy. I’m sorry if the other members didn’t transmit this kindness as well. The staff is getting ready for the semi-Marathon (in 2 weeks), some of us handle the hard training better than others ;)

We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you soon!
Kind regards from all of us,
Philippe Bourgeois

We arrived in Paris by Eurostar at 11am on a Saturday, we got the metro straight to the hotel (very easy) and were able to check in and access our room early which was brilliant! Our room was a reasonable size which was well decorated with lots of character and charm and very clean. The bed was comfy and location quiet for a good sleep.

We were only in Paris for 1 night and the staff were incredibly helpful, suggesting the best attractions and recommending great restaurants.

The location is very convenient as it so close (5 mins) to Montparnasse which allows access to 4 metro lines from which the entire city can be reached. It is also within easy walking distance of many of the attractions - the Eiffel tower was about 25 minutes walk.

Would definitely recommend and definitely go back!

Chose the Aviatic by reccomendations from Eurostar and other Tripadvisor reviews, and we were not dissappointed. Great location just off the main streets of Montparnasse. It is a small boutique style hotel, that seems to be based on a large house. It is very tastefuly decorated and spotlessly clean. Very helpfull front desk staff. Don't be put off by the fact that there isn't a bar or resturant, as there are more within a 5 minute walk than you could visit in a month. There is a cold breakfast availiable, and the express option delivered to your room is very good value ( for central Paris.) All in all if your looking for a clean, comfortable stay close to all amenities with the Aviatic you can't go wrong.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for taking time to write a so enthusiastic review about your recent stay at Aviatic Hotel!

You’re true; we don’t have a bar in the lobby. However, we propose a large choice of drinks in the minibar placed in every room (wines, champagne, whisky, soft drinks…). Moreover, we offer a welcome drink during the evening, with a selection of wines, red, rosé and white. A nice moment to spend with the team members, to chat and tell us how was your day and your feedback about the exhibitions you saw and so on.

I have been delighted to share it with my entire team who strive every day to provide you with the highest standards.

Kind regards and we hope to see you soon,
Philippe Bourgeois

This is a lovely hotel, beautifully refurbished, with very welcoming and helpful staff. Our bedroom was extremely clean and comfortable. The bed was excellent. The location of the hotel is ideal, being a short 20/30 minute walk to most attractions. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Our triple room was very quiet and had plenty of room.

We loved our one night stay at this hotel. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms decorated very well and breakfast although extra was good. A great location with most sights within a twenty minute walk and the Metro being only 5 minutes away. The gentleman was exceptional and made dinner reseravtions nearby at Le Bien decide which was fantastic.
