This small hotel had good sized rooms for a weekend stay. We stayed for 3 nights and found it very comfortable. It is on a side street, so not particularly noisy. There was a good shower with a large head. The bathroom was clean and modern, with nice big drawers to store toiletries (rare in a hotel). The king size bed was comfortable. The two things which could be improved are the hanging space, which was too short to hang adult shirts, cardigans, etc and the safe was too small to hold a laptop.
The breakfast was a standard continental fare of croissants, cereal, fruit, jams, etc. It was a self service breakfast room, with plenty of stock and fresh, even though we did not have early breakfasts.The staff were friendly and helpful, greeting us whenever we appeared.
The location was perfect. We were near to Cimetiere Montparnesse, which had some interesting graves and about 10 minutes walk from metro station Place Denfert which links to the RER station on Boulevard Montparnasse. There were other closer metros but that one suited us best.
There were many restaurants which were a short walk away. We ate in a Japanese restaurant, Ayko Sushi on Place Denfert Rochereau, a Moroccan restaurant, Royale Berbere on Av. de Maine and also a traditional French restaurant La Coupole on Boulevard Montparnasse. There were many others but we only had three nights!
