“Great Hotel in Paris!!!!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

My husband and I stayed 11 days at this hotel and we really loved it. Although the rooms are tiny, ours was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and had a plus which was a little patio.
The service was absolutely great, the staff is very helpful and nice. They always gave us very good tips and recommendations on everything. Besides, the location is just perfect! We found great cafes and restaurants nearby. There is a bike station one block from there, there are two metro stations also one block distance and the Hop on Hop Off bus has one stop just two blocks away. Honestly perfect location. Totally recommended. I wish we could have stayed longer!

I know, I know I have reviewed this hotel before and yes it's probably silly doing so again but hotels do sag with age but not this one. This hotel gets better and better. The staff have changed but the mannerism haven't a truly marvelous staff await you at this hotel.
We had breakfast every morning which was perfectly balanced and not over filling.
If I had a gripe it would be that the windows look into an apartment block but hey I did not come here to look out the windows !!!
Everything perfect Location, Cafes nearby and metros as well
Can I give 6 out of 5 ???

Parisians are not renowned for their approachability and friendliness so this hotel stands out as an oasis of customer friendly service. I booked online at the last moment and was delighted that it turned out to be a wise choice (aided by other trip advisor correspondents). Location was important to me and the Academies et des Arts was well placed for my business meeting being located near to the Vavin metro stop with easy access to all of Paris. The public areas and bedrooms are all tastefully and stylishly decorated creating a modern and inviting ambience. Being Paris, the rooms are on the small side but are thoughtfully fashioned to make the most of the available space. All members of staff that I came into contact with were polite, smiling and very helpful. I wouldn't change anything and will make a point of returning when I'm next in Paris.

Our hotel has indeed a very arty and unique atmosphere created by Charlotte. Inspired by the hotel’s past and the history of the neighborhood, she worked with several artists such as Jerome Mesnager, a street artist, whose famous “white-bodies” are to be seen all around the world…

My wife and I stayed here for a 40th anniversary trip to Paris. The Montparnasse location was convenient for both its neighborhood assets and its easy access by Metro to the rest of Paris. Great patisserie around the corner: nice to have excellent coffee and pastry so close in the morning. Comfortable bed, good sized closet, modern bathroom (with a separate WC room), and stylishly decorated room, but a few more square feet would have enhanced the experience.

Dear guests,
What a pleasure for us to read your review!
Charlotte created a really nice and unique atmosphere in our hotel, where arts are omnipresent from the lobby to the rooms, as well as in the staircase. There are four different ambiances in the rooms. Moreover Charlotte asked Jérome Mesnager to add a personal touch in each room with his famous “white-bodies”.
The location of our hotel is indeed really convenient with 3 metro stops within walking distance (line 4, 6 and 12) and countless restaurants and bistros, bakeries…

Great stylish hotel for a weekend break in a fab location. Amazing restaurants nearby (Le Dome was superb), attentive staff and nice rooms - although they are paris sized (economical with space) they are fine, tastefully decorated with art throughout and had very comfy beds. Am a regular to Paris for weekends and will definitely return as its the best location, service, hotel and price mix that I have found over 30 such trips.

2nd time at Hotel des Academies and if possible even better. Small rooms, but tastefully done. Service exceptional, nothing is too much bother. Lovely breakfast, good coffee and in a fantastic location, will definitely return and hopefully soon, this is Paris at its best.

I spent 5 nights in this hotel last year, and I'm planning to come back this year. Our classic room was small but very well presented. It never felt small because all amenities were perfectly designed. Bed felt super comfortable. Elevators were always working. Super cleaned and service felt like 4 star hotel. Location is wonderful, near to many restaurants but located in a quiet street. Breakfast was ok, but my 3 year old daughter was not too happy with it after 3 days….jam, bread and yogurt was not her thing. I found breakfast very expensive. Internet worked good and you can add more than one device at no extra charge. At night, I requested milk for my daughter and these were not charged to us! September was great time to go to Paris, kids were back to school, weather was so beautiful, not hot, not cold. Train access was super close (vavin station) just a few steps away but there al also many other stations close by. Taxi caps were easy to get without reservation, although the receptionist took care of it all the times.

Room Tip: Make reservations directly to the hotel, and not using third parties
