My daughter and I stayed at this hotel....upon arriving the gentleman at the desk was very helpful and pleasant...the room was small, but adequate.(who want's to stay in a hotel room all day in Paris!) Bathroom was very nice, large walk in shower, clean. Window opened to small balcony overlooking the street...we kept the window open at night...very nice hotel for the price...clean, staff is pleasant.just a few steps from the metro and surround by multiple restaurants.....glad we stayed....

Clean hotel and in good location. The room was quite small, which didn't really bother me. What did bother me was that there was no hot water and when the reception was told, they said it was a technical problem and that was it. They didn't send anyone to repair it. My whole stay was without hot water and the AC was broken as well.
There were no apologies from the receptionist, not even an attempt to perhaps apologize with a complimentary breakfast or a discount of some sorts.

My husband and I just returned from Paris, where we spent our 1 year wedding anniversary. Although I usually don't write reviews, I thought this would be helpful for people who choose this place...

The hotel is ok for it's location as very close to all sightseeing locations and is located in a funky, jazzy area surruonded by brasseries and caffes, which we liked.

The overall experience of this hotel is average for various reasons:

1. Room size- very tiny, only space to turn around
2. The bathroom was good, but doors to shower has a gap and we constantly flooded our bathroom.
3. Breakfast was so poor- for a 4 star hotel you would expect a large buffet with large selection of breakfast items. But there we were offered only continental breakfast with 1 hot item- eggs, made from egg powder. Yuk.


Having said that, rooms and hotel is clean and if you don't mind a tiny room with poor breakfast, this will be a place for you.

We considered this hotel "a find" - good price, very helpful front desk, internet service, optional breakfast, clean and very convenient location (in the very northern tip of the 14th arrondissement - a stone's through from the 6th & 7th) - easy to get around Paris by foot & Metro or to be near train stations if headed out to the countryside--very near Gare Montparnasse (trains to west and south-west France) or an easy bus ride to Gare d'Austerlitz for southbound trains. Our room was lovely and comfortable with a decent view. We enjoyed the area restaurants, particularly Le Plomb du Cantal, located about 2 blocks down the street.

Very nice vibrant area with all the bistros, bars, take aways and transport links you could want. Nice clean modern room, attentive and friendly staff.

The only negatives is they wouldn't let us turn the air conditioning to below 21 degrees and it was roasting hot for some of the trip and the safe didn't work although we were offered an out of room safe we didn't end up needing or using it. Also didn't get fresh sheets on the day we requested our room be cleaned - about half way through our 6 day stay. There isn't a pool or gardens at the back as we saw in one on a different website just to let you know.

Minor points in a lovely stay and this very good hotel. I think we ended up paying about €70 a night with was a very reasonable price for the quality. We were worried about the reviews on here about small rooms but ours was just fine - about 12x12 meters + decent sized ensuite. Our room had a nice balcony with views of the Sacre Couer too and Montparnasse tower.

On a sign in the reception and in the room it stated that the cost of the standard room was €200 per night. It's nice but don't think it's worth that kind of money - I think I may have been happy to pay about half of that. Luckily we paid far less in peak season! I'd say it's perhaps more of a nice 3 star hotel than a 4 star but I'd definitely stay again if I got it for a similar price.

We needed a hotel near the Montparnasse train station for catching a train the next morning so we booked the Timhotel Elysee Montparnasse.
We got 2 comfort double rooms. The rooms are compact but sufficient. The rooms and the bathrooms were clean. They had most of the amenities we need.
The hotel is conveniently located. The nearest metro station is just at the end of the street and it is a 5-minute walk to the Montparnasse train station.
Even the hotel is situated in an animated street, it was not noisy during the night.
If you need a hotel near the Montparnasse train station, it would be a good choice.

I just spent a week in this hotel and all I can do is think how lucky we were to find this place. Three metro lines, including a major train station are just a few blocks away. Great base for a visit around the Paris region.Many bars, cafes, & restaurants just a few feet away. A bit noisy at night, but not enough to disrupt sleep after a long day walking around the city.
