    Location 5.38 /10


    The hotel is located at the crossroads of the Raspail and Montparnasse Boulevards, at the edge of the 6th arrondissement, with the well-presented Rue Vavin running from the other side of the boulevard to the Jardin du Luxembourg. This really is one of the finest areas of Montparnasse, steeped in artistic history and home to legendary restaurants such as La Coupole and the Dôme, where Picasso, Giacometti, Kessel and even Hemingway used to dine. The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art and the Montparnasse Cemetery, the final resting place of Charles Baudelaire, among others, are also worth a visit. The emphasis in the district today is on the 7th art, with a plethora of picture houses in the area, though the restaurants and shops are what really bring the place to life.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The rooms overlooking the courtyard haven't changed since the 70s, as witnessed by the Japanese paper and Formica, whereas the rooms in the main building are relatively new and rather perfunctory with a touch of modernity (light wallpaper, naive painting and a flat-screen television). The new management team intends to bring back the style of this artistic establishment, the first stage of which will involve changing the net curtains at the windows, replacing the shower curtains with screens and renewing the bedding. Later, the intention is to introduce a 1920s-style theme into the decor.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Istria, which was established in 1920, stands close to Montparnasse, alongside a fine-looking Art Deco building housing some workshops. Indeed, the hotel hosted a series of famous names in its day, including photographer Man Ray, painters Picabia, Duchamp and Kisling, and poet Louis Aragon and his muse Elsa Triolet, also a writer. There is even a plaque dedicated to them on the building's facade. The modestly-sized reception opens onto a yard where there are five guest rooms, whilst the breakfast room is located in a vaulted cellar on the basement level.

      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!

      • Location 5.95

      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 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.

      • Location 8.85

      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.

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.
