Good value for money. Relatively small rooms but comfortable. Slightly away from the centre of Paris but easy access. The reception is supposed to be open 24 hours but they lock the doors after a certain time and we were waiting for a while as the receptionist went into a back room and could not hear the doorbell ringing, which was not very convenient.
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.
Hotel was OK. Small room, like many in Paris, was a bit cramped but clean with a comfortable bed. Conveniently located to many bars, restaurants, metro and close to train station. Just off of Montparnasse Blvd which is a great street to walk down with lots of eating places. Staff was very helpful and pleasant during our stay.

A perfect Parisian-style address in the heart of the theaters discrit of Montparnasse. Few steps away from the metro/ TGV …More
Only stayed one night but found hotel to be very conveniently located to bars, restaurants, shopping as well as metro stations and the Montparnasse train station. Room was smallish like most rooms in Paris but very clean and cmfortable. There was a slight odor of sewer gas coming from the shower stall but kept the shower and bathroom door closed it was not so noticeable. Staff was very welcoming and helpfulhelpful. Would stay here again on any future visit.
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.
