An old fashioned Cheapo in the otherwise pricey Montparnasse neighborhood, the Stanislas offers very simple two-star rooms that could work for unfussy budget travelers.
Pros: Cheap rates. Well-equipped rooms. Nice neighborhood.
Cons: Dated furnishings. No elevator. Could use sprucing up.
A good choice for no-frills budget travelers, the two-star Hotel Stanislas offers the cheapest hotel rooms between the Luxembourg Gardens and the Gare Montparnasse. The signed concert posters lining the lobby date back at least 15 years, as do, we believe, the hotel’s most recent major renovations.
The hotel’s 18 rooms are simply decorated with old-fashioned wallpaper and blue curtains, and furnished with a bed, telephone and TV. Private bathrooms (in all rooms) are equipped with a shower and hair dryer. Wi-Fi is provided for free throughout the hotel.
The cheap double room rates (hovering around €80 a night) make this an appealing choice for couples or duos who don’t mind sharing a bed (two-bed twin rooms raise the rate by about €5). Note that room rates are the same for single or double travelers. Also note that rooms are a bit rough around the edges—this hotel isn’t recommended for picky budget travelers.
Young guests might enjoy the active student life in the quarter. At 4 p.m., students from several schools pour onto sidewalks to smoke cigarettes and hang out in the cafés. It’s an interesting scene, and very French.
Breakfast is offered for €6 and served in the old fashioned café downstairs. The hotel does not have an elevator.

About the Hotel Stanislas neighborhood
Just west of the Latin Quarter in the direction of the Eiffel Tower, St. Germain des Prés is flanked by two Parisian gems—the Luxembourg Gardens to the south and the banks of the Seine to the north. The iconic neighborhood borrows its name from the church of St. Germain des Prés. It is defined by the boulevard of the same name, which slices through the quarter’s winding streets.
