Much improved since last time....

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2009

I decided, against my better judgement, to give this hotel another go after having a bad experience there in 2007 with two exceptionally rude desk clerks. I'm pleased to report that it has greatly improved in the area of welcome and helpfulness and the hotel itself remains clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. I paid 65Euro for a single room.

Unique Quality: The location is the thing that attracts me. It is right across the road from Gare Montparnasse and the Metro and is also very close to the Air France Shuttle stop from CDG. The area is a favourite of mine with some lovely restaurants close by not to mention some very good shopping, (C & A, and a branch of Galleries Lafayette). The metro (Montparnasse Bienvenue) is also a major station with several lines passing through. The Eiffel Tower is within walking distance, if you like walking, as are many other major attractions. The Tour Montparnasse is right opposite. Book through www.venere.com or www.booking.com.

Directions: Diagonally opposite Gare Montparnasse and directly opposite Tour Montparnasse.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Tea & coffee making facilities in room. Had no problems with noise. Close to main metro station - Montparnasse Bienvenue - which is a link for line 4,6,12 and 13.

Directions: Commercial & shopping district

North but Near

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 23, 2005

We had three nights. There was a little used courtyard where we gathered the first day to rest. The staff were generally helpful but not extremely knowledgable. It was easy enought to find a nearby subway stop and had a great view of Sacre Couer. There was a market very close where we bought bread, wine, and snacks. Breakfast was simple and continental but delicious.

Unique Quality: A great view of Sacre Couer from the higher floors.

Directions: North very close to the train station in the Gare du Nord.

Great Location!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at TimHotel Montparnasse in December for our "Christmas in Paris" vacation. The hotel is actually split up into 3 - 4 buildings of 4 story high and about 4 hotel rooms per floor.

The location was great! It is right opposite of the 'Tour du Montparnasse' so, it's always easy to find home.

Gare Montparnasse (train station) is also within 5 minutes walk. If you want to go to Brussels, Belgium from Paris, you'd use Montparnasse.

The metro was also a block away and is one of the bigger metro stops with four lines (ligne 4, 12, 13, and 6). Great location, we were never more than 15 minutes away from the excitement.

Unique Quality: This is a 2* hotel so keep that in mind. The room is a bit small, when compared to American standards. It's approximately 100 sq. ft big. So there is definitely not much space for luggages.

There is NO iron / iron board available.
There is NO blow dryer available.
There is NO Safe in-room.

However, they have good service. Our rooms were made up every day. The hotel maid was very nice and made sure I had enough tea packets.

There is a electric water kettle along with tea packets, bisquits, and coffee mix for guests. It is replenished daily.

There is a small closet that you can put your clothes in but for the 2 of us, that was not enough. No big deal, we're on travel, so we lived out of suitcases.

The elevator is small, so only one person and one luggage piece can squeeze in. Again, not a big deal since it's only 4 floors.

There is a shower & tub, which we utilized after a hard day of sight-seeing and fun!

The hotel also serves daily breakfasts of yogurt, croissants, cereals, juice but we never tried it because it was 8 - 10 euros and we got a much better selection at Galerie Lafayette shopping area across the street....at Pomme du Pain or BonJournee.

Overall, I'd recommend it and we'd love to go back. The hotel concierge was nice and gave us great directions and recommendations!

Again, great location! Lots of restaurants around the area plus movie theaters.
