Aviatic is a very nice hotel. Set on a quiet street just off the Boulevard Montparnesse and only a short walk from the fashionable Saint Germain des pres district of Paris, it's ideally situated for tourists. There are two Metro stations nearby: St Placide and Montparnasse Bienvienue, the latter being just a little closer, I think.
Our room was on the 6th (top) floor and had just been redecorated and refitted. As one would expect, it was perfectly clean and very nicely appointed. The bathroom was well equipped and the shower worked beautifully. The decor of our room was spartan (bare floors) but very tasteful and comfortable. We were lucky enough to have a room which faced the rear courtyard so it was very quiet.
Complaints? Just one. We were there on the night France changed the clocks to summer time. Having a lovely time in Paris, we completely forgot this and, as a result, missed our Eurostar train home on Sunday afternoon! I couldn't help feeling that someone on reception might have mentioned the time-change. Friends of ours who were in Paris at the same time later told us that their hotel displayed notices in prominent positions around the hotel. It would have been helpful if the staff at Aviatic had been as thoughtful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated between Saint Germain des Pres and Montparnasse, the Hotel LOUISON is a chic hotel in the centre of Paris. With nineteenth century furniture, cherry and chestnut tones on the walls, marble floors and a courtyard garden, the Aviatic captures the spirit of the Left Bank in every detail. The hotel was constructed in 1856 to welcome the painters, sculptors and writers who would go on to put the Latin quarter at the very heart of European culture. This cultural heritage is present even in the bedrooms. Tastefully decorated, they generate a feeling of calm and a sensual ambiance. The charming, multilingual staff are always available to provide you with help and advice. They will be happy to offer local insight on art galleries, museums and the area's famous pavement cafes. ... more less
