    « Clean, friendly & helpful, good location! »

    Our party of six took 3 rooms in April 2018. We were very pleased with this hotel, our first stay there. We were pleasantly surprised to find our rooms were available well before official check-in time. The rooms are quiet, well-appointed, comfortable, and exceptionally clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is terrific with many shops & restaurants nearby, and Metro stations just a few steps away. It is a lively area, but feels safe. The petit dejeune was OK, but not exceptional. The airport taxi arranged for us by the front desk was also clean, on time, and the driver was helpful and friendly -- many hotels will get you a cab, but sometimes they are a little sketchy -- this hotel works with a specific taxi company. We all especially appreciated the exceptionally helpful front desk staff on all shifts.

    « Perfect Location »

    My wife and I stayed here for our first time in Paris. The room was small but from talking to others, all hotels are in Paris. You do not need a big room to enjoy Paris! Bathroom is spacious and modern. The hotel is a 30 min walk to just about every major attraction. If walking is not for you, the hotel is right next to two metro line entrances. You can get anywhere in Paris by going on either one of these lines with catching connecting lines at other stations. We took the train into Paris at the Gare de l'Est train station. We took the purple line from the station to the Saint-Placide metro stop, which is a 15 meter walk to the hotel door, for €1.90 each. If you want to save money, take the metro. The staff is friendly, you have bars/cafés/bakeries/conveniences stores within a block, you are centrally located in a safe arrondissement (the 6th), and the hotel is a great price! If you want a great time in Paris this is the hotel for you!

    « There are better places, just keep looking. »

    We stayed at this hotel over the weekend. The hotel was overpriced. Friday night $150+, Saturday night $180+, no breakfast included. ??The room was tiny, even for Paris. The bathroom was tiny, even for Paris. There was no view. ??The walls were thin. ?? The location was the best thing about the hotel. There were two lines that had easily accessible stops, although one of the lines had stops under construction, so you had to be on your A game when choosing your route. There were some restaurants and small patisserie shops that had good selections. We have stayed in Paris multiple times and I always like to stay in hotels that are near the touristy things we like to do. I choose this hotel for the Best Western name and knowing it was an American-type brand. It really means nothing. The last hotel we stayed in was Hotel Eiffel Turenne, which was awesome. It is a very nice modern boutique hotel that I would highly recommend. It was also well priced. The rooms were larger, brighter and had a great view. ??It was also in a location walkable to the Eiffel Tower!?? Do your research and look around before you pick this hotel.

    « My room was like a cupboard »

    A group of us stayed here for 4 nights at the end of March. 2 of us got rooms that had no window that viewed the outside, the only window looked out onto a spiral staircase fire escape. Hence there was only dry air conditioning. When you opened the window you got a horrid smell so had to shut it again. The bathroom also kept smelling of cigarette smoke periodically. The room was so small I struggled to get my suitcase in the room between the gap beween the door and bed. I would NEVERstay here again. These rooms should not used. The breakfast was nice but a much better breakfast is available in a local hotel which includes hot food.

    « Nice hotel with a more neighborhood feel »

    Very friendly and helpful hotel staff. Conveniently located near the metro. Rooms were very small, but clean. Just enough room to walk around the two twin beds. Nice sized bathroom. Only real issue was the room temperature. It was way too hot even though we turned off the heat. Breakfast was a bit disappointing, but in all fairness we didn't get to breakfast until close to the end of breakfast time.

    « Good location »

    The rooms were very small and dated. The lobby was the best part of the hotel. Good news is that the hotel was close to the Metro. We had a 3-person room and all that meant is that they brought it a roll-away bed into a normal size room, so we were cramped.

    We stayed 2 nights at the hotel Aramis for a family week-end in Paris. I would highly recommend it. It is located in the Latin Quarter, surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants and a 5 mins walk from les Jardins du Luxembourg. The staff is very helpful and welcoming. The room was lovely and very clean. We will definitely be back!

    « An Excellent Little Gem In Montparnasse! »

    The Best Western Hotel Aramis-St Germain is a marvellous little gem in the heart of Montparnasse, just a block or so from the Gare Montparnasse and with easy access to buses, taxis and the wonderful Paris Métro. The staff is excellent; everyone is very polite and friendly, and terrifically courteous. If you ask for something, or if there is a problem, they take care of it straightaway. The rooms are spotlessly clean, ditto the corridors and main areas. Everything is very well maintained and in excellent, working order. The breakfast is very filling and wholesome: lots of good baguettes, croissants, and pain au chocolat (a personal favourite). Fresh fruit salad, boiled eggs, ham, cheese, and yoghourts round out the menu. It would be nice to have some hot food, but that is a personal thing and should not be considered a critcism of the hotel. They really do offer a good breakfast! The rooms are a bit on the small side, and could use more dresser drawers and better closets, especially for longer stays. But, overall, they are well furnished, and have nice bathrooms. There are lots of outlets so you can plug things in, and the Wi-Fi is very good, too. Frédéric and Paola are the owners and they are there nearly every day. They really go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and taken care of. I very, very much enjoyed my stay here, and would definitely plan to return, very soon!

    « Great option for lodging in Paris. »

    Great location, comfortable rooms and attentive staff. The location of the hotel makes it very easy to travel around Paris. By the time we stayed the M4 line was closed, but just in front of the hotel has a bus stop which we used as a subway substitute in some situations. It was all perfect!

    « Enjoyable stay »

    A comfortable two night stay with extremely helpful staff. The hotel is small and the rooms are cosy and well equipped with coffee making facilities, a small but contemporary shower with power shower, AC and heating. The hotel is conveniently close to the metro, a whole range of eateries and bars and a mixture of boutiques and familiar stores.

    « Very satisfied »

    The personnel were very efficient and very helpful. The room was clean and the hotel was well located. Bathroom and bathroom utilities were OK and renewed every day. Towels clean. Over all we had a nice holiday trip in Paris and, we enjoyed staying at this hotel.

    « Very happy »

    Small but perfectly formed. Spotlessly clean and well managed. Rooms typical of small French hotels but delightfully appointed , very comfortable beds and quality linens etc. Bathroom was very up to date with a big walk-in shower and powerful hair dryer. Front office staff were efficient and helpful. Breakfast is simple but with enough choice and everything very fresh. Would happily recommend this place to anyone wanting simplicity with quality in an area where transport and plenty of good eateries are on the doorstep.

    « Horrible experience!!! »

    I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. I suffered a rubbery of EUR5000 which I saved in the hotel safe. So far the hotel has not reimburse me and claims that the insurance company is analyzing the case. Other guests were robbed on the same day as me.

    « Small nice hotel »

    The Best Western Aramis Saint Gernain is a small but very nice hotel. Our room was for 3 people with one double bed and a small extra bed, it was a little tight but but not uncomfortable. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the area and a Metro station just across the street. We had a small breakfast on just one morning which was basic but there are plenty of other options just outside.

    « Value for money »

    The location is excellent - it is very well connected to every place in the city. Although it is a reasonably long walk (around 40 mins), I did walk to Eiffel tower. Louvre is even closer. It is a very good choice for what you pay for. The hotel is well-managed and the staffs were friendly and helpful. The only downside is the breakfast - it is just an average one with limited choice. However, if you would like to be in a decent place close to the city, there are few places to match.

    « Good Paris Hotel »

    We ended up getting two rooms at this hotel, one was a queen bed and the other was a triple (double and single beds). The rooms were on the 6th floor because we were able to kind of have our own hallway area leading to the two doors which was very nice. Downside to being on the 6th floor is that the very small elevator (can pretty much squeeze 3 people no luggage or 1 person and maybe 2 bags) only goes to the 5th floor. So we had to lug our luggage up one flight of stairs to our rooms. That being said, the rooms were not cramped at all and the hotel was very nice, clean, and quiet and right on a bus line and metro. The front desk was very helpful with maps and they were always willing to help us with our french. We did not do the breakfast here but instead walked across the street to the bakery in the morning, not sure if the breakfast is worth it for the price.

    « Great location and value for money »

    Great value for money. We booked a room for three nights. The room and the toilet were spotless every single day. There are two metro stations close by - which makes getting around Paris very easy. All the receptionists I talked to and dealt with were also very friendly and helful. I highly recommend Best Western Aramis Saint-Germain.

    « Excellent in every way »

    Professional staff, ideal location, clean rooms and comfortable bedding. My goal to enjoy Paris again was met in part due to a return stay at this hotel. Requests were handled graciously by staff. The location is fantastic and the chance to relax was wonderful because they think of everything. Summary: perfect.

    « Strongly recommend »

    Have just returned from here after almost a week with friends. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in an ample sized beautifully clean bedroom. Faced onto the street but double glazing ensured no noise and peaceful nights. Very comfortable bed. Staff very helpful and very obliging. We had a problem with T.V reception and they did their best to sort it. WiFi connection very good. Breakfast continental selection and plentiful. We found this hotel ideally placed for metro, one station ( St Placide) directly across street and Rennes just around corner. Plenty of shops and restaurants close by . We caught train from Garre Montparnasse station at the top of the street to Versailles and took approx 12 minutes. Couldn't be any easier. If we visit again will definitely be back.

    « Excellent hotel for the price »

    We stayed 7 nights at this hotel, and we were very pleased! The room was a bit small, but as a couple we were fine. More important, it was very clean. The reception were very kind. The thing we liked most was, of course, the location! Two metro stations nearby, one is just across! And the 6th arrondissement is lovely, with Rue de Rennes as one the main streets around, full of shops and cafes(but not noisy at night), and not far from Boulevard St Germain. The elevator is small and does not reach 6th floor, but for the price it was more than worth it. Thank you!

    « Great location »

    Great location, the rooms are what you'd expect from a Paris hotel, clean (although our first room had a smell in the bathroom, we were provided a new (larger) room upon advising the staff so they dealt with that well). The service was fine throughout however upon checking out we were told we cannot use gift cards (which were provided from Best Western) despite being told prior that we could. This very much soured our experience, no so much because of the fact they didn't know how to use them and ultimately refused and demanded we pay with card, but more due to the way the dealt with it; being told that we must wait until 7:30am for the manager to return - it was 6am and we had already told the reception we had a 7am train and; their refusal to call B/W to verify or even ask how to do this, I was told to call them myself - this should have been addressed with a call to the B/W company support line to ask how to apply the cards. Unfortunately, because of this we would not stay here again.

    The Aramis was wonderful! It's centrally located at the edge of St. Germain De Pres. There are both bus and subway stops across the street. Both are very simple to use. You have a choice of three good cafes steps from the hotel. The neighborhood is full of cafes, boutiques, churches, and gorgeous architecture. The staff is multilingual and very helpful, e.g. they ordered a taxi for us to get to the airport, helped us get/print our boarding passes and offered suggestions. Highly recommended!

    « Suited us ... »

    Next to a Metro ... on the Left Bank so not heaving with tourists ( busy with locals as numerous eating places and little shops) We like walking so Musee D'Orsay and Rodin near enough + Seine and Jardin Luxembourg nearby but even walked to the new Picasso exhibition. A long time ago had "done The Eiffel Tower + Notre Dame ... do go up. ( walked back through the heaving tourists at Notre Dame + tour coaches + Seine bateaux. This visit just two nights before we caught the TGV to Nice (check out First Class and quiet carriage !! )

    Lovely hotel with very helpful staff in great location...buses just outside and metro across the road. Lots of places to eat around and big shopping centre close by. The only issue I had wa that the safe was too small for my iPad but lovely staff let me leave it in their care.

    « Exceeded expectations »

    As a frequent visitor to Paris over the last 25 years, I have stayed in lots of accommodations. This trip was for business, and I was traveling alone, so tried to travel economically. I read the reviews of this hotel ahead of time, and thought it sounded like a place that would be fine, if not exceptional. I knew the area, and thought it was very well located. The metro station, Placide, is just across the street. Upon arrival at around 11 am, I was so happy to find my room was ready for check in. I was given a lovely room on the fifth floor, room 53, which was very spacious. The bed was very comfortable, and the linens were especially nice. The bathroom was larger than some 5 star hotels in which I have stayed, and was very clean. The best part of the room, by far, was the terrace which looked out upon the rue de Rennes, complete with a table and 2 chairs. I had 2 double windows which made the room very light. I spent each evening on the terrace watching the light fade over the zinc rooftops of Paris- pretty spectacular. At bedtime, the double windows closed nicely and I was not disturbed by the traffic on one of the major thoroughfares in the city. The helpful and very cheerful desk staff made a dinner reservation for me at a local restaurant, Le Recamier, which was wonderful. All in all, I found this hotel to be a great value in a wonderfully located area. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Overpriced and lacks service »

    We paid for room plus breakfast for 4 nights, unfortunately the hotel failed to provide a breakfast for Celiac, even though we checked on booking and on our day of arrival, it was only on the last day following further complaints that they provided food for breakfast. Wine Bar is also limited and the wines are warm.

    « Nice hotel. Bit overpriced »

    Paid over €170 per night for a two-bed room without breakfast. First room given was on top floor (6th) which can only be reached by stair. The tiny elevator does not go beyond the 5th. The room on the 6th looked clean. But for 2 tall people (over180cm) with to large suitcases it was too tiny to our liking. Also not all rooms there have a nice view, so if you find this important: be aware. We were a bit struggling where to put our cases without breaking necks, etc. So we asked for the possibility to move. Which was kindly approved! So next nights we stayed on a lower floor in a larger room which provided more room to move and again was nicely clean. Beds also were made up wonderful and slept good. Beds maybe are a bit on the short side for tall Europeans, but that is with many hotels and was no issue for us. We did not make use of the breakfast. + Clean Friendly staff willing to service Close to metro 7*24h reception - 6th floor only by stairs - okay though with hand luggage Bit outdate looking furniture - though also matter of taste Not all staff members could provide good info on f.i. nice restaurants, bars in large area around hotel; other than "walk that way and there are many". Why not create a list put it at desk so all staff can provide it to guests f.i.

    « Small rooms, comfy beds, great location »

    Yes, the room was small. It was well decorated, clean, beds were very comfortable and the area is a great location. The elevator was small (as most are and at least they have one). The hotel has a cool staircase. We stayed on a high floor. Big bay windows open. The bathroom was recently remodeled.

    « Quick stay »

    Clean hotel in a great location. Very quiet rooms and a lift. The lady at the front desk was friendly and kind. The only negative was the night manager didn't know how to use the wine dispenser at the bar and I wanted a red wine night cap. Only white wine was in the mini bar.

    « Small, basic but nice »

    The hotel was very small and the room was very basic. This was all we needed however given the high cost of accommodation in the centre of Paris. The bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom was clean while the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when giving directions around the area. The price was better than the norm given it's brilliant central location. Numerous bars and restaurants close by along with a choice of metro stations a minutes walk away. Excellent, authentic and delicious french brasserie across the road too! Do go!

    Hubby and I had a short stop in Paris on our European vacation. This hotel had everything we need. Access via subway (which is right across the street) was very easy. We caught the train and subway in from the airport. The opted for the shuttle they provide (for a small fee) on the way back. Friendly staff. Walking distance to great shops and restaurants. Not too touristy of an area but easy to get to all the famous sights in Paris via the train. Will definitely be back.

    « Outstanding location »

    We have stayed in this hotel two times. Last year, we moved from another hotel to this one, and this year we booked it again because it left a lasting impression. For the sake of efficiency I will list the pros and cons of both stays for a more thorough review. Pros: Friendly and amenable staff. Last year when we walked in off the street, unhappy with our other hotel, and were greeted by some of the nicest hotel personnel we have meet in our trips to France. Both the young man and lady were very informative, gave us an amazing deal, had the friendliest demeanor, and we got a great room. This year we didn't see either of them until our last day, where the young man remembered us from last year. I have to say that is a big plus for a hotel and it was for this one. Location: The location of this hotel can't be beat. It is located on the St Germain area with a subway entrance just across the street and the most delicious French bakery on the opposite corner. It is so good it always has a line in the morning. It is also surrounded by shops, cafes and within easy walking distance to some of the bigger shops in Paris. So truly fabulous location! Quiet: This is a fairly active area of Paris, but not the most active and although, this year's room faced the street, it was surprisingly quiet both for both stays. We did have someone with a new born baby next door, but you could hardly hear the crying which says much about the hotel's insulation. Pro & Con: Rooms: This is where our experience last year and this year differ. The rooms all contain safes, a small refrigerator with some refreshments and are air conditioned. Last year's room was on the very top floor,and although the lift stopped one floor down and we had to lug our luggage up and down a floor, it was a much better room. It was bigger, had a larger restroom with an area to place toiletries, a tub and shower. This year's room, which we booked earlier, was smaller. My friend had to move furniture out of the way to have space. The bed on both sides almost touched the walls and the bathroom only had a shower, no tub and absolutely no room to put our makeup. It was a much different room and it actually made us reconsider if we would stay there again. We have stayed in boutique hotels before and we are familiar with the small rooms, so I guess the disappointment was the big difference between the rooms. Overall, I think this is a good hotel and recommend staying here because it is well kept up and the price is pretty good. It has some amenities and, believe me, the location makes a big difference.

    « Great Value »

    The hotel's location is ideal if you are traveling with young children. Jardin de Luxembourg is a short walk away, and the hotel is across the street from the metro. The room was super clean. The perplexing thing about our particular room was a large armoire that took up a lot of space but was not configured to store clothes or luggage. It essentially turned a nice sized room into a cramped room, unnecessarily. It is worth asking if all the rooms have this bizarre armoire. It's not a big deal, but every square meter of space in a Parisian hotel room is worth preserving, right?

    « Great Staff and Location »

    The people at the front desk were very helpful during our stay. The location is great and there is an excellent bakery next door that is very convenient for a breakfast before touring the city. The only issue is that we were lacking any bathroom towels one afternoon and had to inquire at the front desk. Apparently, few rooms received towels that day, which is somewhat strange.

    « Great hotel in a great neighborhood »

    Great location, very nice neighborhood. We were able to eat at several of the places around the hotel, there were some great shops as well. Close to the metro, walkable to Luxembourg Gardens. The rooms were a standard European size, very clean and very friendly staff.

    « Good location great customer service breakfast selection could improve »

    I was pleasantly surprised by the Best Western Aramis Saint-Germain. It is a reasonably small hotel however the location is great not far from the Metro station. It is in one of the shopping strips and supermarkets are not far away. The staff were a real highlight. Very welcoming and helpful. Went out of their way to help. Only negative was the breakfast on offer. I have gluten/lactose intolerance so not a lot to eat for breakfast as mainly croissants/pastries ect. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again and have recommended to others.

    « Excellent location... »

    I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past three years, most recently in mid-December. The hotel location is great and there are lots of restaurants, cafes, boulangeries and patticerries in the neighborhood...and the metro stations are steps away. I have always found the staff to be friendly, courteous and very helpful. As others have mentioned, the rooms (even the superior rooms) are tiny by North American standards - there is barely enough space for two regular-size open suitcases - but not unusual for Parisien hotels in the same class. The room rate varies hugely from night to night so watch out of for that. At the lower end of the price range, the hotel is an outstanding value for money.

    « Great little hotel »

    I stayed here for 6 nights over Christmas with my 13 year old daughter and 16 year old nephew. The rooms are very small but most rooms are in Paris. And if we can mange for a week with two teenagers, one being quite grumpy anyone can survive a small Paris hotel. We had a little balcony and my daughter loved sitting out there. The location was great! We will be coming back! I usually stay at high end hotels but this one was fantastic for the price and location. Everyone at the front desk was super friendly!

    Comfortable, clean rooms. A fantastic location with endless choices nearby. Staff members who are helpful, professional and so often find a way to go the extra mile for me. Important issues like safety and minimal noise disruption are observed. Easy CDG access. I've only been home 1 day and am already plotting how I can return!

    « 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    « 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 !

    « 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.

    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.

    « 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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    « 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

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'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.

    « Very efficient hotel »

    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.
