Upon arrival the staff were very welcoming and provided useful advice about the metro and restaurants nearby.
The room was clean and tidy. The area was well served by several different restaurants with a good choice to serve all budgets so we did not have far to go to enjoy the lovely parisian cuisine. It all made the holiday thoroughly enjoyable.
Good overnight hotel. We had a room with three single beds. Plenty of room for three adults. Located between two metro stations. Check in is at 2pm but we were able to store a luggage at the front desk at our 11am arrival and head out to explore Paris.
This hotel is in a great location very close to the RER station at Port Royal. The room accommodation was very clean and comfortable and though it is situated next to a busy road with a popular bar right across the street, even with the window open I was not disturbed by too much noise through the night. As you approach the hotel it looks welcoming with a small courtyard in front. The staff are courteous but not over-effusive in their welcome; no information is offered about the hotel and where things are. A lady receptionist was extremely helpful with an American guest who needed flights booking, so I guess they go the extra mile if you ask for help. Breakfast is adequate but not very exciting; there are many bistros and cafes around which might offer a better choice but I was in Paris in August when everything is closed. Beware the lift - 1 suitcase and 1 person is just about all it can manage.
This was our first stop on a trip to France and we spent three nights at Le Chaplain. The Metro and the RER from the airport easily reach the hotel. With an overnight flight just behind us, we arrived in the morning and found our hotel on a quiet little side street. Thanks Google Maps! Our room (a “Club” room with a queen bed) was ready and we could go right up. The young woman handling reception was very friendly and happy to converse in her excellent English. She booked a restaurant of our choice for that evening. We purposely booked a room with the size bed that we are accustomed to and both bed and room were perfect for us. We had enough room so we could each have our bags available; the shower, the free Wi-Fi and room temperature control worked very well; and there was even a help yourself mini fridge with bottles of water and sodas. This hotel serves breakfast, but we didn’t choose the 14 Euro breakfast, but as usual in France found a very good bakery with seating just a couple of blocks away and had our typical croissant and coffee le petit dejeuner. We like this particular part of Paris for all kinds of places to eat, convenient transportation and we would be happy to come back Le Chaplain on a future visit.
Wonderful little hotel in the heart of Montparnasse. Lots of local eateries and only a short walk to the train hub of Gare Montparnasse. Staff speak English and are very helpful. Room appointments are of good quality.
Word of caution: the hotel does not have an elevator from The ground floor so you will have to walk and carry luggage up to reception and the breakfast whilst good is overshadowed by the many local patisseries so better to head out and eat in one of the public parks or a local cafe.
The 3 star hotel Du Parc is located in the centre of Paris , close to Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Montparnasse TGV …More
I spent only oe night in this hotel, I have to say that the place is very nice, a little tight in spaces in general but vey pretty, clean and well located. In general everything OK. Except for the day that I was leaving, ehre I asked the girl in the front desk about timings and ways to get to Orly Arport at certain hour. She first told me that it could take up to 2 hours to get there! I didn´t believe this was right but I didn´t want to undermine Paris´s rush traffic, so I booked the taxi considering 1,5 hours. Then I asked her about the fare, adn if it was fixed, etc. He told me that it should be around 40-55 EUR (quite a wide range to me...). At the end it only took 25 minutes to get to the airport and it only costs 30 EUR (...). It is a shame that people in the hotel have such an uncertainty on important traveler information.
WE have stayed at this hotel on 3 Paris trips. The rooms are average Paris 3-star hotel size--small, but not as small as many. The management has gone to some effort to modernize the decor and it has improved nicely since the last time we were here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The main selling point for us is the location. It is not in the heart of the city but is rather close to the peripherique, but has a metro entrance quite literally out the front door. Tram across the street. Pastry shops, restaurants, pharmacies, food markets, etc., all within a few minutes walk. It's almost the end of the metro line so there is always a seat to be had when taking the metro to other parts of Paris. The convenience of the location is what sells us every time. When reserving a room though I would request a rear room, away from the streets.
South of the Latin Quarter, this residential and commercial district contains the evocative cafés and brasseries of the Lost Generation near Place Vavin and Montparnasse Cemetery. Attractions include the Catacombs, Parc Montsouris, the Cité Universitaire and a clutch of little art museums. The discount fashion stores of Rue d’Alésia and Vanves flea market attract bargain-hunters. There are good bus and train links to Orly Airport.
