I spent 2 nights at La Manufacture in November and was well beyond satisfied with essentially every detail! This hotel offers a truly charming simplicity; my stay was absolutely lovely. The room was very well organized, despite being small. The bed was extremely comfortable (luxuriously comfortable, I would say). The bathroom, while tiny, was absolutely adequate (I had a shower only, which was fine). I was initially a little anxious upon discovering that my room was directly across the hall from the elevators, but I was not remotely disturbed by any hallway noise in the night. The reception area is tranquil and comfortable. The breakfast was surprisingly varied -- fruit salad, yogurt (plain, fruit), cereal(s), eggs, sliced meats/cheese(s) (in the interest of honesty, the cheeses were packaged cheeses), bread and pastries, coffee/tea/hot chocolate. And, above all, the staff at La Manufacture is superb. Everyone I encountered, from the kitchen staff, to the cleaning staff, to the reception desk, was friendly, thoughtful, conscientious. I have to say a few extra words for Nadine Mougin, Chef de Réception. I left the hotel on a Sunday afternoon, intending to take a taxi to Gare Montparnasse; as I returned to the hotel around noon on Sunday, walking through nearby Place d'Italie, I could see what was clearly the start of a big manifestation, and I could see that all the roads leading into/out of the place were blocked by police tape, police cars, riot police, etc. Clearly a taxi was not going to be happening! I had arrived at the hotel via metro, so I knew where the metro stop in the place was located (I'd planned to take a taxi in order to avoid sore shoulders!) and I had a feeling the metro was going to be my only option for getting to Montparnasse, but was a bit apprehensive about dealing with the demonstration. Nadine walked with me to the metro stop, showing me how to dodge the masses, helped me carry my bags, walked down into the stop itself, and the held my bag while I went through the turnstile. I was profoundly grateful and am still surprised and deeply impressed -- service which turns into kindness. Wow. This hotel offers a true simple luxury at exceptionally reasonable prices.
