Affordable Rooms in Montparnasse

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 16, 2003

Hotel du Parc in Montparnasse is a decent, clean and affordable 2-star hotel.

Sitting under the shadow of the Montparnasse Tower (about 4 blocks away), there is one flight of stairs from street level to the first-floor lobby.
After that, there is an elevator to take you to rooms on the higher floors.

Like most hotels, (my recommendation)skip breakfast and walk 2 little blocks to the famous Montparnasse cafes (Atelier, Select, Rotonde and Coupole) for a great Parisian breakfast in historic surroundings.

The hotel is conveniently located a block from the very useful Edgar Quinet Metro stop on Ligne 6 which will get you anywhere you want to go in Paris in just minutes, or a stroll a couple streets down (south) to Metro Gaite.
The neighborhood is deceptively historic, effectively 'Henry Miller Centrale' (his room 40 at the Hôtel Central he shared w / Anaïs Nin & June is directly across the street, along with the moody little Cafe Milou)

My top floor room was clean, functional/adequate, and looked out over the park and the distinctive Montparnasse roofline.

For Eu74 / $89 a night I think you still get your moneys worth: a clean, well furnished room with shower, and a lift/elevator from the lobby to your floor. (They also have "Single économique" rooms for 50 Euros, but the bathroom and shower facilities are shared .... eewwww ...)

There are possibly as-good or better deals in Paris, but if you're stuck looking for a budget hotel room in a decent location, du Parc will do the trick.
I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Unique Quality: A small park (Sq Gaston Baty - sometimes called 'Square du Maine') is right across the street.

Staff is helpful. Breakfast (5,5 Euro)is ok if you're too lazy to walk to a cafe.
They now have highspeed internet access.
Good views if you get a room on a high floor overlooking the park with Tour Montparnasse on your right.
With a shower & private toilet, about 74 Euros / night with internet offer bookings in high season.
OK for Paris, and in an area that has character Montparnasse/(Gaite).

You won't rave about it, but you won't hate it, and the area's fun.

Directions: Walk 1 block south by sw from Metro Edgar Quinet. On a strange little triangular shaped block, across the street from a little park (Sq Gaston Baty).
At the confluence of rue Jolivet, rue Poinsot, Gaite, and rue du Maine
