pay more, but stay anywhere but this place!!!Posted Jul 25, 2012
Pros: I can't think of a single thing!!
Cons: lack of maintenance and the staff's arrogance
Location: Theater disctrict, very noisy well into the night and early morning hours. don't expect it to be quiet until around 5AM.
Let's start with the main issue, during the hottest most humid period, the air conditioning gave out. For 3 days I was told it would be fixed the next morning. It was fixed on the morning I was checking out. There was no offer to change rooms, 4 days later I was told it was the entire hotel (no one else was at the desk inquiring - hmm!). On the 4th day, after being out all afternoon in sweltering heat, I get back to my room in the evening to find they did not leave a single towel, not a one. Cleaned the room and forgot to leave any towels, coupled with no A/C, needless to say, I had less than a positive experience. we would open the windows at tnight, but it was extremely noisy well into the night. No one had consideration of the time of night on that street. It's a little independant hostel and they didn't care about the comfort or opinion of their guests. I was told I could complain to my travel arranger. The price was not cheap, but the hotel was.

Hotel 'has been' nice (although with pretty small rooms and narrow showers). Several maintenance problems (non-working A/C, broken or scuffed closet doors, elevator malfunctioning, wireless not reaches top floor, good band at lowest floor). Safe is available and can accomodate 15" laptop, personnel is nice and accomodating. The hotel is surrounded by nice restaurants and creperies, and is very close to a major metro station and commercial center. The neighborhood is nicely lively, without being overcrowded by tourists.

Basic things missing: i.e. Iron etcPosted Jun 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel location is good, there were so many things which can be improved as basic things Iron, coffee mug etc were not available in the room. Sometimes Hotel Staff was not supportive.

Good for the money... usuallyPosted Aug 29, 2011
I chose hotel Unic because it was the best bargain at the time... oddly, the room price is remarkably unstable from day to day. I ended up changing to another hotel when the room price went up nearly 500% from one day to the next. The neighborhood is fun. This hotel has a great location along rue du Montparnasse. Local bistros offer good food, stores for buying supplies are plentiful, and the metro (Line 4) is 5 minutes away. The evenings were a lot of fun because all the crêperies along the street are buzzing with locals and tourists until around 11PM. That buzz is great if you like the background noise, but horrible if you want peace and quiet. If you want quiet, this isn't the hotel for you. There is ZERO noise insulation between rooms and floors. If a person in the room beside or above you snores, it's the same as if you were sharing their bed. Even quiet conversations can be clearly overheard by everyone in any surrounding room. The front desk doesn't have a problem calling someone to tell them to keep it down, but consider yourself forewarned. The room itself was okay. The walls are a little grubby and the rooms small, but the sheets and bathroom are cleaned daily and I never had a 'yuck' moment. The front desk staff is warm and welcoming, particularly if you can speak even a little french. Wifi and phone calls are extra, but of good quality and much cheaper than at an internet cafe. It clearly isn't the Ritz, but I would have no problem staying here again.

Don't rely on the website....Posted Jul 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
I found the hotel very well located, however even by Paris standards I felt it was generally just very over priced for the standard it was.The room was very very small, and I am far from overweight..but could only just about turn around in the shower it was so small. The wardrobe basically could not be opened unless you closed the window and side stepped... The room itself was not very clean with stains on the sheets and the walls were slightly decrepit, the t.v didn't work most of the time, the window only opened little bit also the website claims that they are soundproofed...this is untrue, There was basically little difference in noise between the window opened and closed .The telephone didn't work..apart from the reception being able to call to remind us to check out. Check in time is stated noon on the website however I was informed on arrival that it was 2pm...major false advertising...not to mention the fact that I didnt recognise one photo of a bedroom on the website which ressembled the real deal.The noise was unbearable in the mornings particularily by chambermaids/staff in the hotel. Although the location is great with the facade of the hotel looking enticing...I would never ever stay here again nor recommend anyone to. Truly not worth what you might pay and you will be dissapointed..

Would stay in a hostel before going back to this hotelPosted Jun 24, 2011
Do yourself a favor and do not spend money to stay here. If they offer it for free, see if you can get a better deal elsewhere. My wife and I traveled through France for 11 days and our last night in Paris was in this hotel. It was far and away the worst of the hotel rooms on our trip as well as of our entire adult life of paying for hotels. The carpet looked as though it was last cleaned around the end of World War II, the beds were likely pulled out of a condemned college's dormitory and the bathroom had enough mold to open your own blue cheese factory. Shortly put, we do not recommend this hotel to anyone with a pulse.

Much better than other reviews suggestPosted Apr 24, 2011
Stayed for 3 nights in a twin room. OK, the hotel could do with being repainted and plastered, but it's by no means as bad as some other reviews I've seen. The staff were all very friendly and the location is excellent with several metro stations within easy walking distance - I would avoid Montpernasse-Bienvenue because of all the steps and movinvg walkways. The Luxembourg gardens are within easy walking distance and lovely to walk round and sit in. We didn't try the hotel breakfast because there are better and cheaper eateries nearby.

Wnn't go backPosted Sep 15, 2010
I made a reservation for shuttle services from the hotel to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris through the front desk clerk. They charged me more than what they gave to the shuttle driver for no apparent reason. The telephone system was dead throughout my stay of four nights and five days. They just didn't care to do anything about it.
