The three-star Hotel de la Paix Montparnasse is a lovely and renovated boutique hotel located near the brasseries of Montparnasse. “Cheapo”? Not usually, but it’s worth considering as its rates sometimes dip into affordable territory.
Pros: Comfortable, renovated rooms. Convenient Montparnasse location. Boutique décor.
Cons: “Standard” rooms can be tight. Not the cheapest option. Complaints of slow Wi-Fi.
The hotel was completely renovated in 2009, leaving the rooms with stylish touches that are both chic and homey. Walls are painted muted colors, eclectic artwork hangs and drapes are sufficiently bold. Furniture is a mix of French farmhouse and minimalist. “Standard” rooms are a tad smaller than “deluxe” rooms, but the trendy style is the same in both room types.
All rooms are non-smoking and equipped with a flat-screen TV, telephone, free Wi-Fi and air conditioning. Of the Hotel de la Paix’s 39 rooms, half face the busy Boulevard Raspail, and these are equipped with soundproof windows to keep out the noise.
Private baths are spotless, with showers in the standard rooms (deluxe rooms feature bathtubs). All have hair dryer and toiletries.
The Hotel de la Paix Montparnasse goes fully retro-chic downstairs in its lobby and breakfast area. Check out the vintage French pronunciation chart, antique gramophone, exposed brick wall and recessed lighting. It’s a class act.
The Hotel de la Paix is located on the Boulevard Raspail just a few steps south of the Boulevard Montparnasse, very near Metro Raspail. Breakfast is offered for €9.
If you’re reliant upon Wi-Fi, note that many guests have commented on the hotel’s slow, albeit free, connection.
One of the Hotel de la Paix’s chief selling points is its convenient location, located along the busy-ish Boulevard Raspail, just south of the bustling Boulevard du Montparnasse. This is prime territory for those dreaming of brasseries, booksellers and movie houses. The Jardin du Luxembourg is a short walk away.
Metro: The hotel is located next to the Raspail Metro station (lines 4 and 6). The de la Paix is also a quick walk from the Gare Montparnasse (train station).

About the Hôtel De La Paix neighborhood
