Hotel Clairefontaine
Ranked #1,320 of 1,809 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 15 September 2013

It is not a hotel- more like small apartment rooms. The building is joined to apartment block and it can be noisy in the morning and evening. Anyone, from guests staying in the hotel, can walk up to your window and considering that there is no air conditioning in rooms, I would struggle if we stayed there in the middle of hot summer, if I wanted to keep window shut for privacy and safety reasons.
The duvet cover was just ordinary bed sheet, which was exposing rather questionable duvet, so we kicked it to a side and slept just under sheet. There is no tea/coffee facility and no fridge in the room.
However location is perfect, very close to tourists attraction, yet very Parisian and you can experience some of real Parisian life. Just round the corner from hotel, there is a street full of cafes, restaurants, shops, bakeries etc.
We stayed 1 night, and it was just right for very short stay.

Just spent two great nights at the Hotel Clairefontaine in Paris. Location is great, 10 minute walk to the Montparnasse station, and 10 minutes walk to another Gare that is a direct shot to the Charles de Gaul airport. The staff were very accommodating, and while the room was small it had everything we needed (except soap!) and was very quiet. Petit dejeuner was pricy considering all the wonderful boulangerie near by, but if in a hurry it was satisfying. Also lots of wonderful places to eat nearby. For the price, it was a great stay in Paris.

Room Tip: Bring your own soap and plan to eat out for breakfast

Very small room. There was a portable air conditioning unit which was not connected properly so the room was just heating up instead of getting cool. The young man at reception helped us but in order to keep the air con running we needed to keep the window wide open, even at night. The window faced a walkway, inside the hotel so I was a bit scared at night but everything was okay. It is a good area, close to metro. Overall, good blue for money and would stay here again.

Stayed for 3 nights with 2 young children. Rooms are small but perfect for a few nights. Easy access to metro to explore Paris. Located near plenty of cafes and nice bakeries. Simple but it has a nice feel to it and a very good price too.

We stayed here for one night in June. Our room was clean and the front staff were very helpful and accommodating. Great location, an easy walk from the Port Royal train station. The rooms are very small but quite comfortable. For the price the Hotel Clairefontaine is a great option for anyone travelling on a budget. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night as an overnight stop across France. The hotel is placed perfectly for Montparnesse train station well within walking distance even with luggage. The room was small and overlooked to street which was not a problem. There is a terrace in the centre of the hotel which was great to sit have have a nightcap. Less than 200 mts away there were plenty of bars and restaurants to while the evening away. We paid in advance for breakfast €10 which was ok but not exceptional. Excellent value for a city centre hotel and I would recommend for a short stay. One thing the rooms are on 4 floors with no elevators so try and book the lower level if you might struggle with stairs.
