“good hotel in excellent location”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

For a comparatively reasonable price for Paris, this hotel has an excellent location in the buzzing Latin quarter; 200m from the Seine and 100m from the Metro/RER station. This meant quick and easy access to the CGD airport and to all the attractions that Paris has to offer.
We asked for a quiet 3 bed room and that is what we got. All in good working order and a modern bathroom with a bath. Plenty of storage space and a good TV. Only draw back was mattress & pillow a little too hard for my liking.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel which is quite nice for a reasonable-priced meal, but there are loads of other places nearby to try. We had a buffet breakfast here a couple of times and for E10 it wasn't too bad.
Some words of advice on sightseeing... There were massive queues for everything when we visited last week. I think everyone tends to arrive early to avoid queues but that didn't work for us, in fact I noticed that for several places the queue was much quieter in the early afternoon.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet one

The location was great ..our room ( no 26 ) was small with nice view to the street ..
The bathroom was less than basic and the shower the most uncomfortable ever !!!!!!!
I'm afraid this was the last time for us in the Hotel du Mont Blanc...

if you're on your honeymoon...you shouldn't stay at the MONT BLANC...'romantic' it isn't!!! that being said, this remains one of the top value-priced options in paris, where lodging prices can really put a dent in your travel budget.
i consider myself an expert on this place, having stayed there well over a dozen times, spanning some 20+ years. i've stayed here as a solo traveler, as the guide-translator for a group of twelve, and even as a tour leader for a group of students.
if i were limited to just one remark about the MONT BLANC, it would be that you won't ever
find a better-located property in paris...especially if you're into tourist stuff, historic attractions, as well as restaurants, clubs and pubs. it's all right outside the front door, in the lively latin quarter. this is the place they were thinking of when the phrase "LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION" was coined.
as an added bonus, if this is your first visit to paris, FINDING THE MONT BLANC is easy.
it sits just yards off 'place st. michel' which is a hub for METRO, RER, AND BUS, lines. you can take an inexpensive RER from charles degaulle airport, and a two-minute walk will get you there.
rooms here are just average...but...if you're in paris, especially in this part of it, and spending a lot of time in your room, then you're missing quite a lot. some of the bathrooms have been updated, some are quite small, but clean, and service was responsive. one special request was tended to in surprisingly short order. i had the opportunity to meet the woman owner...and confirm that she is concerned about providing a good guest experience. front desk staff do speak at least some english...but in france, always ask before blurting out something in english... a quick "parlez-vous anglais" will go a long way toward maying your stay in france a good one.
a couple other things worth note... even going back to my first visit, we've always been fascinated by the quaint, traditional elevator...it's like something out of an old french movie. also...do beware..."EATING IN THE ROOMS" is strictly forbidden. that shouldn't be a problem though, since the numerous, nearby, dining options, of many ethnic styles, all have sit-down
facilities. wine in the rooms is o.k., so take advantage of that, along with unbelievable low-priced and decent options available in a small 'super-market' a block or so away in the direction of the mcdonalds at the intersection of st. michel, and st. germain blvds.
so...summing up...you can't go too wrong staying at the mont blanc. as a multiple-times "around the world" traveler, i'd stay here again, anytime.

Room Tip: for max quiet, request a room (without a view) in the rear. if you can put up with a bit of noise...

The hotel is small, but the location is very good... The young lady from the reception was unkind but did her job, nothing less, nothing more... The housekeeping was good, Restaurant as well and we had a good time there...

I spent one night at Du Mont Blanc.
I was greeted on arrival by the charming receptionist, with a lovely smile and the key to my "triple" room. This was the last room available when i booked and Central Paris was full due to the exhibitions and trade shows taking place that week.
I had some concern about the location in terms of noise, but as my room was at the rear of the hotel it was very quiet.
The room itself was clean and quite basic. The bathroom was good with a decent shower (although the addition of a shaving mirror would be nice).
Free wi-fi throughout the hotel was a bonus.
The location is brilliant, one minute walk from the RER/metro station and three minutes from Notre Dame.
The hotel is right in the middle of a multitude of bars, cafes and restaurants...so it's quite lively outside.
Yes, i will probably return next time I'm in Paris.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room at the back?

I had booked a room for this coming Friay evening directly through the hotel for 120 euro a night, and was really looking forward to staying there, until last week, the hotel sent me an email stating the following:

"We regret to announce that we have got a problem with your booking in our system and we are obliged to book a room for you in another hotel. We have done that and we booked a superior double room at Hotel du Levant in the same area as our hotel, please you have to cancel the reservation that you made in the website. We are sorry for this inconvenience."

Not only did they send me the new room reservation ONLY in French, thus requiring me to translate it, the rate for this new hotel was 180 EURO A NIGHT. After I sent them an email stating I expect to pay 120 euro a night as this problem was not a fault of mine, they stated they "DID THEIR BEST" and then booked me in a different hotel for 120 euro a night (a hotel NOT of my choosing).

The real kicker is that the Hotel Mont Blanc required a small room deposit to secure the reservation, and the hotel did NOT refund all of my deposit because they stated "the website take that money not the hotel." Are you kidding me? That is the most unprofessional business practice I have ever heard of! Absolutely ridiculous.

I would STRONGLY warn anyone to book elsewhere to prevent this same hassle from happening to you. I am shocked this hotel would treat a customer this way and am extremely disapointed in how their staff handled their own error.

Great base for building your Paris experiene. Staff were helpful when we had issues with a dirty room and were excellent in identifying and correcting a minor biling error. We would defiantly stay here again?
