The hotel is located at the top of the Latin Quarter, and close to the lively district of Montparnasse and its tower. Cinemas, restaurants, bars and clubs make up the nightlife of the area. In the opposite direction, you will come to Paris' largest and most beautiful park: Jardin du Luxembourg - the capital city's green lung; it is a mere 5-minute stroll away. An extra 10 minutes will take you to the heart of the Latin Quarter, giving you the time to admire the beauty and peacefulness of this district's rich history and architecture. The closest underground station is Vavin. Port-Royal station enables you to get to Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport and the Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord-Villepinte thanks to the RER train line.
This hotel's 25 rooms are divided into several categories: Classique, Club & Privilège. We visited the second category: the size is comfortable as the rooms are approximately 16m². The decoration is a real success and is to be found in every room - a large frame displaying the smile of a famous person (Brigitte Bardot, Josephine Baker, Marilyn Monroe or the Mona Lisa) hangs on the wall over the bed. Beautiful lamps hang from the ceiling on both sides of the bed and as far as the amenities are concerned, everything is there - individual air-conditioning, Wi-Fi internet access and a free safe and even the soft drinks of the minibar are free: now, that's unusual! The bathrooms are equipped with either a shower or a bathtub. This hotel tends to be expensive for its category.
Renovated two years ago, the Chaplain Rive Gauche has opted for the same modern decoration as a few other Parisian hotels at the moment - warm colours, soft materials, original lighting and shapes: do not forget to take a look at the 'chandelier' in the lobby, which, by the way, is also used as a breakfast room. A tree-filled interior courtyard is set up with tables and chairs which means that guests can go and have a coffee when the weather's nice. Tea is available at will for the guests, who can go and help themselves from the designated area.
The Mercure Raspail is in a great location and is committed to providing a good quality of service.
A perfectly decent hotel with particularly nice bathrooms.
In the centre of the artistic neighbourhood of Montparnasse, this establishment has kept all the charm of its past.
The guest rooms in this rather pleasant hotel were renovated in 2008. The establishment's proximity to the Montparnasse Tower makes it great tourists as well as people travelling for business purposes.
This hotel is a real treat, a folly, but it is so expensive...
A charming little place located with a lively neighbourhood to one side and the lungs of the capital to the other.
It is clear just from looking at the exterior that there is something different about the Apostrophe. The unique trompe l'oeil façade stands out in this otherwise unremarkable side street off the Boulevard Montparnasse. If you are looking for an original, out-of-the-ordinary base from which to explore Paris, perhaps on a romantic weekend, then this is the place for you. Not only is the hotel like no other, you'll be safe in the knowledge that no one else in the hotel will have the same room as you!
The Villa Luxembourg Hotel is absolutely not synonymous with the grandiose pretensions of its name. This hotel, which does not have many strong points, mainly relies on its relatively advantageous location to attract guests. Located in an unattractive building reminiscent of the 1970's, close to Montparnasse and not far from the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Villa Luxembourg is only attractive for its price.
This is a hotel full of French style in which no copies or reproductions will be tolerated. The Bristol is one of the few luxury hotels in Paris that belongs to a European family (German) rather than one of the great families of Asia or the United Arab Emirates. Stylish, classy and refined, the Bristol holds great importance in the quality and authenticity of its features and materials. Its gourmet restaurant attracts a demanding clientele that is fond of excellent cuisine.
The George V is one of the most prestigious Parisian palaces in the city. You barely have to cross the threshold before realising you are entering a hotel in which luxury, perfection and indulgence are the name of the game. Boasting rooms fit for a princess, impressive lounges and a Michelin-starred restaurant, the George V ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying even the most demanding of guests. The interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building in 1997, and has since then continued to make improvements to the decor in the 18th Century style.
The latest Parisian palace to open its doors on 1 August 2014. The French chic and sophistication goes perfectly with the Asian elegance in the magnificent building dating from 1908. This is the Peninsula Group's first hotel to open in France but also in Europe.
The latest Parisian luxury hotel, the Shangri-La will seduce a demanding clientele that will know how to appreciate the richly ornate Empire style of this particular hotel. Nothing more can be said about the lengths taken to find the materials, designs, and other accessories that contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the 19th century, while at the same time offering the comfort and modernity of the 21st century. This extremely shiny and ornate Empire style may scare away some potential guests, however, it is still a real privilege to stay in this residence previously owned by a prince, the great nephew of Napoleon.
It took five Haussmanian buildings to bring the Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme into existence, and it is the first luxury hotel in Paris to be designed in a contemporary fashion. Comfort, style and impeccable service all come together here in a younger, more modern setting.
Inaugurated on 28 February 2012, the W Paris - Opera has finally opened in the City of Light. The Starwood brand linked to fashion and trends thus has its own prestigious establishment in Paris.
Nestled in a 19th century building, the hotel is in a great location. Design and modernity, with a conceptual touch, all come together here. Its designer is in the best position to explain why, since we're not sure it's really clear otherwise, but the W Paris-Opera is centred around the theme The Spark. The establishment thus defines itself as a "spark", creating a fictitious connection between the very first W hotel in New York and its newest sibling in Paris.
At the heart of the Opera district, the W can already rely on its guests who are fans of the brand and hopes that word of mouth will make it the place to be in the area; not just for its rooms but for its restaurant and bar as well.
Confidentiality is the order of the day at this very upmarket establishment, perfect for VIPs looking for a little discretion, and private events are also held here.
The Meurice is one of Paris's best addresses. With its contemporary yet quintessentially Parisian décor realised by great names such as Stark and his daughter. The Meurice is an exclusive haunt. the hotel's main restaurant, Le Meurice, is headed by 3 Michelin star Chef Yannick Alléno which is, needless to say, one of the highlights of a stay at the hotel. In a fantastic location right opposite the Jardin des Tuileries, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the service is impeccable.
