BEST WESTERN Aramis Saint-Germain,Paris

    « Great location to holiday »

    Booked the hotel through my United Vacations package. My room was small but perfect for me and my daughter. I had a front view. It was great to be able to open the windows and look out at the traffic and street life below. Staff was always very helpful. The location was perfect for shopping and not a bad walk across the Seine. I would stay here again. Only downside was breakfast, very expensive and not a lot of food (great coffee and orange juice with one dry croissant) for 6 euros. There is a bakery across by the metro entrance. If I were smarter faster, I would have been over there in the evening buying my pastry for early morning breakfast on days when I had an excursion to go on.

    « Quick stop in Paris »

    The Best Western Aramis Saint Germain is a great location for 1st time visitors as well as return visitors. It's on a main street so getting lost shouldn't be an issue. It's in the middle of quintessential Parisian architecture and yet all your needs of food, shopping and necessities are near by. There's a perfect chocolatier near by! When we arrived, there was a guest asking about the 'demonstrations' and the staff was able to direct her and us about the march going down the street that day. They gave us recommendations of where it was starting and ending and when it should pass by the hotel and where we could go to avoid it if we wished. We had plans not to be around at that time, but were able to have dinner at the corner cafe watching the post-demonstration happenings. The staff was very gracious and helpful no matter our needs! Our room was very small, but in Paris, we feel the intimate quarters is part of the charm! It was clean and fresh and there was even a (tiny) elevator! That's a nice convenience when you've walked the entire day.

    Staff was exceptional - friendly and eager to help answer questions, provide directions St. Placide Metro directley across the street, as is the perfect bistro for a quick breakfast of late night snack 15 min walk to Saint Germain or Luxembourg gardens

    « Great central location handy to Metro train line Rennes. »

    Helpful staff & lovely room. Small, but that's Paris. Nice breakfast cafe area with plenty of food to choose from. Gorgeous lady helping us with breakfast. Fabulous jugs of nice, strong expresso coffee. Good location for walking & train travel. Clean, lovely room. Would recommend to other visitors.

    « Very nice, conveniently located, and at a reasonable price! »

    The Best Western Aramis hotel was a wonderful oasis for my wife and me during our three-night visit to Paris. The room was small, but exceptionally clean, had all the amenities we needed, and was very neatly appointed. The solid air conditioning was seriously appreciated during the heat wave that swept over the city during our stay! The location was great with a slew of restaurants and shops within a short walk and very easy access to the Metro. To top it off, the staff was outstanding... very friendly and helpful.

    « Perfect Location »

    We stayed here in mid August for a weekend.We were a family of 3 so we booked a triple room. Location was excellent, right across the road from St. Placide Metro station. This meant changing at one station from the airport train. The Rue De Rennes has plenty of shops and restaurants, and there is a Galeries Lafayette at the Tour Montparnasse. Check in was smooth and efficient, the room was perfect for our needs and spotlessly clean. There is a lift to the 5th floor where we stayed but a small stairs to the floor above. (could be awkward for those with large luggage). At all times, staff were very friendly,and courteous, and rooms were cleaned each day. We didn't eat breakfast here, as we felt it was expensive with cheaper alternatives within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good location in Paris, as the metro makes it very accessible to all areas. We would certainly stay here again.

    « Great Value for Money »

    Great location, between Boulevard Saint Germain and Tour Montparnasse. Staff is excellent and always eager to help mad solve problems. Great value for money, ideal for travelers who will only sleep in the hotel and are looking for a good budget selection.

    « Nice hotel, great location, helpful and friendly staff. »

    We stayed for 8 nights in 2 doucle rooms. Rooms wereclean and well equipped (kettle, mini bar. Rooms a bit small but was ok and bathroom size was good. The staff were friendly and helpful whether at the reception or breakfast room. The area is very nice with lots of cafes around, starbucks and McDonalds nearby if your kids are into that. Lots of shops around too. It's quite close to tour montparnasse and we walked to notredame (20 min.) There is a hop on hop off bus stop not far away (5 min walking). Metro stop close by but we mainly used uber or hop on hop off bus. I would definitely stay there again.

    « EXCELLENT LOCATION AND GREAT SERVICE FROM WILLIAM! »

    Small but very clean rooms with tea/coffee facilities (added value). Great central location with two major train stations at less than 5 minutes walk (Rennes station located just across the street). 15 -20 minutes walk to the St Michael Fountain where most of the tours start and to Notre Damme Cathedral. You can also walk to the catacombs from the hotel. Pleasant and helpful staff especially, William who has been a star to us from the time of the booking from Cairo, to check-in and out in less than 5 minutes. William was always willing to help us with how to get around town via underground and never seem to mind if the questions was asked a several times. Thank you William for adding so much value to our trip to Paris.

    « Charming Paris Hotel great location , great service great value »

    A very charming hotel with a lot of old world charm. spiral staircase that went all the way up to top floor and beautiful antique Brass room keys that you leave and pick up at front desk when leaving or entering hotel. The couple that run this family owned hotel are absolutely wonderful along with the rest of staff. We had 2 rooms a double and a triple. Quarters were tight as expected for this rate in Paris. Bathrooms were modern, Beds were exceptionally comfy , room was clean and very quaint. Lift was very small but staircase was fun. Location was excellent with lots to do nearby. There is a wonderful cafe right outside the door with fresh baked croisants . The buses and underground were very close as well. We had very easy access to all the sights in Paris. Wifi was very random worked on and off .

    « Great location and servie »

    Cosy and clean hotel really close to the Metro. It is also close to a hop-on-hop-off-bus and lots of nice places to walk to and through. Great service, nice breakfast (simple) and I can recommend to anyone. I could see myself returning another time.

    « Great spot »

    Nice spot in Paris-close to the center of everything and very close my first stop, the catacombs. Solid rate. And a comfortable room to boot. The staff have been great so far. The only flaw is a tv that does not work. The hotel bar is lovely.

    « Terrific property in the centre of Paris »

    Travellers should know that the Best Western properties in Europe are way nicer than their US counterparts. I don't know why ? but they just are. The Aramis is no exception: great location, terrific service and the rooms spacious by European standards. We did reserve a ?superior? room - #35 ? but rates are reasonable. We overlooked Vaugirard St. on the ?back? side of the hotel which was quieter than the front. Being in the 6th, you have access to a large interesting area of Paris. We walked to Au Comptoir for meals (twice); short walk to Bon Marche and down to the area near the Seine. Also, you are right at a Metro line to access all of Paris. Beds were very comfortable and there is good lighting for reading. Rooms are exceptionally clean with good air circulation. The bathroom had been renovated and are quite large, providing a big tub/shower combination. I do suggest a grab bar to exit the tub because it is dangerous ? there is a glass partition which swings in but it doesn't give you enough room to get out of the tub safely. Also, the towel racks are REALLY high. My sister had to stand on the toilet to reach them. Breakfast, an extra charge, is nothing exceptional and costs €15 ? small croissants?and a travesty for France, the cheese was processed. But there are many places you can get breakfast outside the hotel. I always carry Starbuck VIAs to have that first cup of coffee to get going.

    « Great hotel, best location for seeing lots of Paris. Highly Recommended »

    We stayed here during the euro 2016 tournament, for 6 days. I'll star t by say thing this, based on what it cost us, the type of hotel we needed and the purpose it served we couldn't hve asked for a better located hotel. There is a Metro opposite and it will take you to all the major tourists attractions fairly easily, you can walk to the Eiffel tower / Louvre (we managed it in about 40 minutes, leisurely stroll through the streets. Around the hotel are plenty of shops, café's and restaurants (there is a Thevenin patisserie opposite, well worth it!) there is a supermarket next door which is handy for snacks etc if needed on your travels. On the road the hotel is situated it's basically a shopping high street, behind too and to the left as you walk out. IF you come out of the hotel and turn right walk up you will head to a bring cross road and there are some brilliant restaurants there, well worth exploring. As a location we couldn't have picked a better place, it was far enough from the main city centre so quiet when needed and away from the crowds, however near enough to get to all the places you need to visit. Sacre Coer was 30 mins on the metro if that, The Paris catacombs are a 10 minute walk away. Come out of the hotel and turn left there are more shops and restaurant as you walk. The best way to explore this area is to walk, you will see lots and there is so much to take in. The hotel itself is compact like most in Paris, the room was perfectly fine, we were 3 sharing and it was adequate, we didn't feel cramped at all though perhaps needed a bigger bathroom. The room is well equipped with plenty of mains outlets, a flat screen tv and tea / coffee facilities. The only English speaking channel we found was BBC World so we just plugged out laptop in to it and watched Netflix. The bathroom is designed for one person really but again it was good, clean and tidy. It had a bath with a shower attachment, if anything it would have been good if there was more power in the shower and also a shower curtain, the small glass barrier didn't keep out much water. The lift I a but snug too but its just as easy to take the stairs. We didn't frequent the bar area too much, nor did we have food there so I cant vouch for the quality, my assumption is that it would be perfectly fine. The best thing about the room was that it had windows that opened. It may not seem much but you get the good noise of the streets below, some fresh air and a good view in the mornings. The staff were very friendly and helped with all our requests. Were kind enough to hold out luggage after check out while we went to a few shops and called a taxi to the airport. If you are looking for a well located hotel in terms of Metro links, shopping and places to eat then book this hotel. The hotel is clean, tidy and a pleasure to stay at. I'd stay there again without hesitation. Oh one final tip the restaurant Les Antiquaires is less than 10 minutes walk away, go there, great place to eat! Thanks

    « Stuffy and poorly managed »

    I was in Paris for a conference, and wanted somewhere to stay that had easy access to the Expo centre at Porte de Versailles. The St Germaine area looked great, and the hotel had reasonable reviews - so I booked one of the superior rooms for €220 . On arriving I was given one of the rooms on the 6th floor, carrying my briefcase and suitcase up the spiral staircase, as the lift only goes to the 5th floor. I was also somewhat disappointed by the room size, but it was very clean and the wifi was great, so I was happy to accept it for one night. I worked for the afternoon, but was aware that it was getting hotter and hotter, and on turning on the air con, the light was flashing and there was an error message. I photo'd the errors and went to reception to see if it could be fixed. The manager was there but left as I was explaining and the receptionist said he was new and he didn't know what to do. And someone would sort it out the next day. I pointed out that the room was too hot to sleep in, and asked if there was another room. I was offered another room on the 6th floor. When I checked it, it was also hot and had the same errors on the air con. By this time other guests were also in reception complaining. The receptionist then called his colleague and I could hear him explaining that the central control panel had a red light flashing for a whole block of rooms. The colleague said he was coming back to the hotel , so I said I would go out for dinner and hopefully it would be fixed when I got back. It wasn't, and I was told someone would come and look at it in the morning . The room was a sweltering 34 C by this time, and I asked again if there was another room that I could have, to be told no. I explained that I would have to then leave the hotel. It was 10 o'clock at night and I had to start searching for an available hotel room in a foreign city. The second hotel I found said they had a room, so I went back to the Aramis to check out. I packed and carried my suitcase and bags back down the stairs . When I was leaving the receptionist said that as it was after 10pm I could have a room that was reserved for someone else, but as it was so late they probably weren't coming now. Having paid for another room In another hotel I declined. As I was leaving someone else came down to reception to complain about the heat - hopefully he got the now available cool room ! I know problems occur, but a new receptionist that had no idea how to handle problems ( apart from to say someone would deal with it the next day ) and had no way of contacting a manager or getting issues resolved is ridiculous. It's a good job there wasn't a real emergency. However I also felt that expecting customers to just put up with problems is not acceptable so I left. I won't be back ! By the way the Holiday Inn round the corner is lovely and cool and cheaper !

    Great hotel in a great location.. Few lines of metro and bus in front of the hotel. Sympathetic staff. Room small but very comfortable. 2 points for improvement: the splashing water in the shower and the very expensive breakfast. But a lot of cheaper and very good options for breakfast around the hotel. Would defiantly return to this hotel...

    The hotel has friendly and helpful staff. weekend on the night shift at the front desk had a super sympathetic Brazilian official who helped a lot . They gave good tips of the city and tourist sites.The room has a good size with wifi ,refrigerator and renovated bathroom. Its a small hotel but very cozy. Very good location , near subway, cafes and stores. I recommend the hotel.

    If I could live here, I would. The access to the Metro, shops, delicious dining and entertaining walks make it a top favorite. The hotel staff is professional, helpful and responsive. The rooms are clean with comfortable bedding and hot showers. This is a repeat visit for me for all the right reasons.

    « Lovely Hotel in Montparnasse »

    Best Western Aramis Saint Germain is a lovely little hotel in Montparnasse, rather close to St. Germain des Pres. There are two metro stops very close to the hotel. There are also a number of cafes and restaurants right next to the hotel. This hotel has a small distinctive lobby, with a mixture of contemporary design elements with Parisian flair. The check-in was quick, welcoming, and efficient. They give you those large traditional keys that you are expected to leave at reception when leaving the hotel. Retrieving the key was never delayed or problematic. My room was much larger than expected, so was the bathroom Both were very clean. My room overlooked Rue de Vaugirard, though my reservation called for a room overlooking Rue de Rennes, so this is my only little dissatisfaction with the hotel. Having said that, it was fine, and it was very quiet without any street noise. The free Wi-Fi worked fine. Checkout was quick and uneventful, which is how you want it to be. The receptionist arranged for a taxi to take me to the airport, and the taxi showed up within a couple of minutes. Generally, I found this hotel to be a lovely choice for Paris, and am happy to recommend it to all.

    « Reliable and Good Location »

    I liked this hotel so much last year, that I booked it again this year. As a Best Western Rewards member, I get points here as well. Nice clean room with comfortable beds. I sleep well here. The awkward problem of two beds stuck together was easily solved by moving them apart at an angle. This place has 3 cafés just outside the door and the Saint-Placide metro stop across the street on the corner. A couple blocks down is the Rennes station. We walked to Notre Dame, Saint Sulpice, Luxembourg Gardens and Montparnasse from here. If you walk down Rue Saint Placide it leads you to cool small shops. If I return to Paris, this will be my stop.

    « Beautiful Room, Great Location »

    The location of this hotel is amazing, metro station is just steps from the door and there is great shopping and restaurants on the same street as the hotel, so location is amazing. It is about a 30 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower, and a 7 minute walk from Montparnasse building with the rooftop viewing deck. The hotel is small and lovely, exactly what I expected from Paris. The rooms are recently renovated, with a lovely bathroom. The hotel does have a lift, but it only goes to the fifth floor, we were on the sixth and had to walk up the stairs with luggage, but oh well - it was Paris! The wifi is sketchy, so this is the only item I would complain about that prevented me from giving 5 stars. I highly recommend to anyone travelling to Paris. Great location, helpful staff, and superb hotel at a great price.

    « Good location, but you get what you pay for »

    Hotel rooms are TINY. We also had cigarette smoke coming into our room through our 3 night stay and it was difficult to vent it. We heard noises at night, hopefully it was just their heating system and nothing live running through the vents. Other than the location, I do not recommend this hotel.

    « Great Location and Extremely Friendly staff »

    Great location, close to restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. Taxi service was quickly available and inexpensive when we asked the front desk staff for service. The front desk staff went out of their way to offer advice for visiting the local attractions. Rooms were clean and functional, slightly small, but typical for large European city hotels.

    « Good Location »

    Hotel was in good location. Room was clean and the staff very friendly. As stated before the rooms were not huge but we knew that was going to be the case for a city hotel. We stayed for four nights and would happily recommend the hotel to others.

    « I loved that we could walk to where we wanted to go, and the metro was close by as well. »

    My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights, it was close to everything walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. We walked everywhere from there. Some nice little eateries around and we found a Starbucks not far from there. It was nest & tidy.

    « Quaint hotel in the heart of a lively area close to trainline »

    Hotels in paris are notoriously small for what you pay. That being said, whilst your room was certainly cosy for a friend and I who were sharing, for a two night trip it was perfect. If you like a bit more space then perhaps opt for a larger suite. Our room windows opened onto the side street behind the front of the hotel - luckily this was set back so we weren't disturbed by noise (although we had drank a lot of wine so perhaps this helped us to zonk out!). The beds are very comfortable and shower is great also. Make sure you close the curtains though as you can see straight across into other apartments. Next door is cAFE d'UNION which is great for a quick bite or a glass of wine if you arrive around lunch time and want to go to the closest place. Behind the hotel there is a number of side streets with interesting shops and little wine and cheese bars. We sat at a great bar called Le Vin En Bouche for hours and ate Fois Gras and drank red wine until dark. The man running it was incredibly friendly and discussed the different wines with us with good sense of humour. It's very small and around dusk filled up quickly, so if there is no space, you can head to a number of others further down the road which were also busy an full of Parisian atmosphere. The hotel is very close to all transport - you can order a taxi from reception or jump on the train which goes pretty much everywhere. You are also walking distance to St. German/Citi/Museum Louvre and you have a number of high street shops on your doorstep like H&M. Highly recommend doing a Paris bike tour also - a great way to see the sights and learn about the history of Paris.

    « Cosy and Neat »

    My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 3 days. The hotel is in a very good location and easily accessible by metro. There are a lot of cafe's and restaurants within walking distance. It is more of a boutique style hotel. Rooms are very small and there was very less space to move around. The hotel is good for business travellers. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They provide airport shuttle service for a discounted rate and I would recommend taking that as a taxi will cost you easily 51 plus euros from the hotel.

    « Simply the best, understated and relaxing »

    Less than 48 hours in Paris and I used up a few getting to and from this hotel in order to repeat a pleasant experience here. A warm greeting upon arrival with efficient check-in and check-out processes, a clean and comfortable bed, neighborhood options that are fun and no pressure to overspend. The Metro practically at the doorstep, interesting shopping nearby and tempting markets all make this my favorite place to stay. Anywhere in Europe. Like any city, rules for street smarts apply. However, I can say that I have never felt safer in Paris. Security is obvious and abundant in this neighborhood and many others. I recommend.

    « Hotel Arramis saved our trip! »

    We arrived in Paris late at night, around 1am. We had already booked and prepaid our stay in Paris, we were to be staying at a hotel down the street called Hotel Perreyve. When we arrived, Hotel Perryve was closed, and locked. It was 1am, cold, raining, and we had no idea what to do or where to go. We were in a foreign country, so we had no wifi or phone service. Luckily we had remembered seeing the Best Western on the drive in, so we walked down there. The person working the front desk, Josef, was the best part of our whole evening. He was accommodating, tried calling our hotel for us, and provided such great hospitality to us. This hotel is very lucky to have him as an employee! We took a room from them, and now I wish our whole stay could have been there. It was a nice, clean room, great location, and had a charming feel to it. Thanks again to the wonderful Josef!

    « Excellent hotel for business travelers and tourists »

    When in Paris on business, I usually choose from one of the many Best Western hotels across the city. I find that they offer consistent quality and excellent value for money, while each hotel retains its individual touch, contrary to certain chains such as Ibis which all seem to be copycats of each other. The Aramis Saint Germain is a perfect example: it is ideally located next to various means of public transport, but also within walking distance to several sights, plenty of pubs and restaurants, and shopping venues (don't miss the Bon Marché department store). The hotel is in perfect condition, obviously recently renovated. The rooms are not big, but that is simply the norm in central Paris at this price level. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom spotless, and there is a desk should you need to finish some work. Wifi connectivity is excellent and free of charge, but that is to be expected nowadays. My only complaint is that the TV is rather small, and does not carry many channels (no BBC), but you hardly come to Paris to watch the telly. The staff were all very friendly and make you feel welcome, although being on a short stay I did not require any particular services or help. The hotel offers a somewhat limited continental breakfast at an additional cost, but if you feel it is not worth the expense there are plenty of 'boulangeries' close by for a fresh croissant. In any case I recommend the hotel, both for business and tourism.

    « Best Western Hotel Aramis Saint Germain »

    We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Great location right opposite metro station and short walk to bus stops. If you are keen the Eiffel tower is within good walking distance (we did it). We found the staff to be extremely pleasant, understanding and very helpful. Yes the rooms and lift are small, but I would expect that anywhere in Paris and don't see this is any real negative. Our room Was quite warm, but I'm not about to complain about that when people are freezing sleeping in the streets not far away. We just opened a window for a while.

    The room was small, but clean and well maintained. The location was very convenient to the major tourist sites of the city. Tour bus, taxi and subway transportation services were easy to access. The shoping and restaurants in the immediate area were super and easy to walk to. We were quite pleased on our selection of this hotel and the location in the city.

    « Perfect location »

    We chose this hotel for its perfect location in St Germain de pres. We were pleased with everything about it, great shopping close by, nice restaurants and happy hours spots, clean rooms, helpful staff. With all the choices in Paris, we are so happy we chose this spot. We will be back.

    « would definitely stay again »

    Getting to the hotel is really easy. The metro station St Placide is right outside the hotel and has a direct line from Gare du Nord (arrival of Eurostar) plus Gare Montparnasse is only a 10 minute walk away. The Luxembourg Gardens are also within an easy 10 minute walk as is St Germain des Pres and the Latin Quarter is approx 20 mins. I travel to Britanny most summers and always stay a night each way in Paris, as I travel from Montparnasse station, I always try and stay within walking distance of the station hence selecting this hotel. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly a male receptionist who,also spoke good English, the lobby is quite small but still had a seating area and felt warm and welcoming. I was traveling with a friend and we had two single rooms booked, mine was on the second floor. The hotel has lifts ( very small with room for one person plus suitcase). Inline with the majority of Parisienne hotels the room was very small. Mine had a double bed and little room for anything else, I had the room as single occupancy but I gues if there are two of you with a suitcase each it could be a struggle. The room had tea and coffee making facilities, complimentary bottle of water, air conditioning and felt very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was lovely, the bath had a jacuzzi and felt very airy and light. The hotel also offers free Wifi. I was worried about noise as the hotel is on a busy boulevard but I could not hear a thing and had a great night of sleep. We were booked on room only so opted to have breakfast in the cafe opposite, which at around 5 euros for a coffee and a croissant was really good value for Parisienne standards. We paid approx £70 per room booked on Expedia and I consider this exceptional value for money and would definitly consider staying there again

    « Encore visit: Mai oui! »

    This hotel and their staff are so wonderful, I consider it a reason to visit Paris again. The interesting neighborhood, easy Metro access and French charm make it a top favorite. The front desk and restaurant staff members are thoughtful, guest centered and professional. Clean, quiet rooms with optional breakfast on-site add to the goal of relaxation. Logic suggests that I try other hotels to maximize learning about the city. Mai non! I like this one way too much to give it up.

    I understand how fantastic the location is, however I fail to see how being offered a tiny tiny room with a view into a dark stairwell is worth €200 a night. I'm converted to Air Bnb now where you pay €80 for one night in a whole apartment! We had to add one night onto our travel so I did the latter and the difference between the two was ridiculous. Realising we didn't want to stay in the dark room I kindly asked the lady on reception to relocate us and she was extremely rude. "Oh you want a room that looks onto the street". I explained I didn't mind I just wanted one that had light coming in not the current view (as shown in picture). So she charge us and extra €20 a night for a room with a view. If you are staying for location then it's probably great for the money but if you want some character and a bit of room is advise air bnb!!

    « Very Nice Hotel for the Price »

    We stayed for 13 nights at the hotel. It was small, clean and in a good location. Although not close to central Paris, it is very close to the Metro, about two long blocks. The neighborhood has a market, pastry shop, butcher with cooked meats and chicken, all of which allowed us to help keep the cost of food down. We made use of the small kitchen in the room for light meals. Our room was very small and there was not enough room for the luggage. We had to step over it. Perhaps if we were lighter packers it would not be a problem. My only advice is not believe the website that says they bring a breakfast to your room. That is an additional cost and it is very basic. I would stay there again because of the staff, cleanliness and value.

    « Excellent option ! Great cost x benefit. »

    The Hotel is very clean, well located, is in front of a Metro Station, close to the Bon Marche, Jardin de Luxemburg, Tour de Montparnasse and 10 minutes walking to Sain German des Pres. The room has a good space for european standart, there is a coffe maker and the bathroom has a good shower with hot water with good pressure. The staff is very nice and i the price was good because i made my reservation from the Hotel website. I really recomend !

    « nice small hotel »

    Spent 2 nights at this hotel. Great location, 2 steps away from metro. Staff really nice, professional. The room was small, but that was not a surprise. The room is spotless, bed is comfortable, bathroom is nice. This is a hotel where you go to sleep during your visit. I would come back to this hotel.

    « Location, comfort and price! Love it ALL! »

    This is my second time staying at the Hotel Aramis and I cannot rave about it enough. The room we had on this visit was updated recently - paint and finishes, new (amazing) mattresses and bathroom. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. The desk staff are friendly and happy to assist. The neighbourhood is my favourite in all of Paris. But, the price? Wow. This place is an incredible value for what you pay. I couldn't actually imagine staying anywhere else! I can't wait to return.

    The locación is very good, the people is nice, the hotel is pretty small, the room was really really small, in sixth floor and the elevator get just to the fifth. Breakfast available but expensive for what you get. I would say that is almost fair for what you pay, but in Paris hotels are quite expensive, and this one is not an exception.

    « Clean, but very rude staff ! stay away »

    I stayed in this hotel for 1 night on the weekend of the tour de France. We arrived on a Saturday after touring for awhile in Paris. The maps make it look like it is only 4 blocks from the Seine River when in actually it is about 25 blocks away. When we arrived the rooms were ready but the girl behind the desk was too busy laughing with someone on the phone ( a friend because I could understand some of what she was saying) then taking care of the "Americans". We dropped our stuff off in the rooms and went back out to tour and look around. When we returned at night, My wife and my room was hot and uncomfortable. I turned on the A/C and 30 mins. later the A/C turned off. I turned it on again and it shut off 20mins. later. I went down to the desk to tell the clerk and he said to "Be patient it takes about 30 mins." I went back up and turned it on again. 20 mins later, it was off again. I turned it on again and went down to tell the desk when I found out the Clerk was turning it off ! When I confronted him, he told me it was making him cold. I thought the customer came first. The next morning I asked to speak to speak with the manager and all I got was a run around. SCREW PARIS !! Also, Paris is loaded with pickpockets and THIEVES !! I WILL NEVER GO BACK !! Go to the Hotel Messina in the Madeline section !! This hotel will be reviewed as well

    « Nice Hotel in a Great Location »

    We stayed here for a week in July and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very friendly and spoke English which was very helpful. We were glad to find out they had a lift when we got a room on the top floor! The room was clean, and the bathroom was actually pretty spacious all things considered! Rooms are small when compared to hotels in the US, but that is to be expected and was plenty of room for two people. And as a bonus, we really enjoyed the small balcony overlooking the street outside our window. The bed was very comfortable and the room very quiet. Other than a few doors opening/closing, we could not hear anyone else in the hotel. The location is fantastic. There is a metro stop across the street from the entrance, which makes a huge difference! This hotel seems to be in a less "touristy" area which was very nice. After a long day, it was nice to get away from the crowded areas and into what seemed like more of a regular neighborhood. That being said, there are still many great activities within walking distance: the Luxembourg Gardens, Church of Saint-Sulpice, great shopping, ect. We even walked home from the Eiffel Tower one night. Everyone we met working there was very helpful and friendly. Our only issue was not being able to communicate with the maid, but that is our fault for not speaking French well! Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Paris

    « Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else in Paris! »

    We've now stayed here three times and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Paris! Excellent value, exceptional staff, and perfect location. The rooms are always spotless. The Metro is just outside the door, but you are also withing fairly easy walking distance of many landmarks. Plenty of good restaurants close by.

    « Paris pad »

    This hotel is very conveniently located within walking distance of the Montparnasse Train Station, within a couple of blocks of the Grand Episserie at the Bon Marche, across the street from a Metro station and surrounded by restaurants and cafes. The staff are very customer service oriented and the room was spotlessly clean. The only downside was the size of the standard room - too small for 2 people so check into booking a larger room if you need to spend any significant time in it instead of enjoying Paris.

    « Excellent value »

    Excellent location, clean room and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The metro station across from the hotel makes everything in Paris accessible. A/C and Internet works well! Great places to shop and eat around.

    « Small hotel -- great location »

    Near Montparnasse off St Germain. Small hotel and rooms, but very nice, clean and close enough to walk or Metro anywhere. Staff extremely helpful. would definitely stay there again. Regarding Metro -- there is one directly across the street that takes you anywhere you want to go. The Rue de Rennes is fairly busy but not obnoxious and there are great restaurants and cafes up and down the street.

    « nice location close to metro and reasonably priced »

    Hotel is in a nice location with lots of shops and restaurants in the area. Also, very clos to the metro. Only one stop to get to CDG airport. I forgot my voltage adapter and the staff was very helpful and let me use one of the hotels.

    Nice place to stay. Easy to travel from. Underground parking in the vicinity. Good shops around. Small but clean rooms. Friendly personnel. Breakfast could be better. No Russian TV channels. Fast and reliable WiFi internet access.

    « Fun time... »

    Enjoyed this hotel, great location close to main tourist sites, metro station across the street restaurants and shops ALL around. Felt safe as well. The staff was multi lingual and since we don't speak French that made us feel at ease. They were also very helpful, they arranged a taxi for us to take to the airport for our return trip. The hotel was comfortable and clean. I will definitely consider this hotel on my next trip to Paris ;)

    « Maybe best value in Paris »

    Old building renovated just right. 6th floor rooms over the Rue de Rennes are wonderful. Need to walk the last flight up which is cool. Bed and sheets super comfortable. Across street from Saint-Placide on LIne 4 - almost perfect location to get anywhere on the Metro. You can do your own laundry 3 blocks away, great for one stays. I will stay here again for sure. Internet slow at night.

    « A Pleasant First Stay in Paris »

    For our first trip to Paris, we booked two rooms in Aramis, St. Germain. Firstly, the area is lovely and crucial; there is easy metro access, it is charming and clean while also being in the midst of various cafes and shops (perfect for people watching), but not touristy (so a nice place to return after a day of touring the city). The hotel itself was just what we needed. Rooms are small, but that is expected in Paris. They are clean and bathrooms are recently redone. Wifi access was key since my cell phone data and roaming were turned off because we were traveling internationally. The front desk staff was always helpful, pleasant, and attentive, which was key to the success of our stay since it was our first time in Paris. Be sure to negotiate a breakfast deal, the breakfast staff and options are perfect before the start of a long day of being out and about. I would definitely stay here again, or recommend to anyone.

    « lovely experience »

    Spent 6 nights in this hotel. First, the staff was wonderful, helpful with their suggestions for restaurants, travel tips, even with printing boarding passes for return home! The location is great. Metro in front,ATM across the street, great neighborhood .Shops, restaurants & easy walking distance to many sights. Room was spotless and quiet, even with neighbors next door. Beds very comfortable. 2 breakfast types (small & large) give you choice. My daughter & I bought one of each and combined them for what we felt was a very good size breakfast between us. Having breakfast at hotel was useful on days we wanted to get out sightseeing quickly. If you want, there are many other options close by. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Our room was petite but we didn't want anything bigger. It was perfect for us. The hotel has larger room options. What made the hotel special (besides location, cleanliness, comfort etc.) was the staff. I would return to this hotel without hesitation.
