A nice little gem--very good experience!Posted Nov 10, 2013
Location: When look for a restaurant (especially if you don't speak/read English), ask the staff or look around first because there are a few good ones near by.
We took a long Euro-Train ride to 4 countries (England, France, Switzerland, and Germany) after business meeting in London. In the end, both my wife and I rated this little hotel by far the best experience among all the hotels we stayed at, including one 5-start and three 4-star hotels. The staff was very helpful; the breakfast was decent even with very limited though well-selected choices of food... The bed was the best part for me since I have chronic back pain, but the bed was so comfortable and not morning back pain at all... We definitely recommend your hotel.

Centrally-located, very good, quiet hotelPosted Oct 18, 2013
Cons: The tap in the bathroom!
Location: The hotel is centrally-located just off the Boulevard du Montparnasse and about 15/20 minutes walk through the Luxembourg to the Seine and Notre Dame
We booked in for 3 nights and were upgraded to a junior suite. The room was not huge but very comfortable with space - amazing for a hotel in Paris. The bathroom was a good size. The staff were very polite and helpful. Even though the hotel is centrally-located, it was very quiet, ensuring a good night's sleep. We would stay there again.

A little small, but stylish and modern!Posted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: Location, near Vavin metro. Modern decor.
Cons: complimentary coffee in 'lobby' would be nice.
Location: Lots of restaurants around the corner on busy Montparnasse, but go explore the rest of Paris for food too!
This hotel is located on a little, kind of quiet, street right off a main road with a Metro stop very close, so pretty convenient. The rooms are small (expected in 98% of Paris hotels), but comfortable. The bathroom was quite nice, great, roomy, stand up shower. Nice big open up windows, comfy bed, 2 closets. Not really any room for my overly large suitcase, so i just put it in the closet and had to leave the door open, not too bad. Cool, modern decore. There is a boulangerie and charcuterie right down the street! The Vavin Metro stop is about 1 block away, can get you anywhere. But also in a location you can easily walk around. Oh, you leave your key whenever you got out! Then no worry about losing it :)

Great restaurants near byPosted Sep 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a good experience at this hotel. There is a great Michelin Star restauratnt only two minutes away that we really enjoyed. There is also a great local restaurant directly across the street. Staff were not as friendly hear, but it wasn't a barrier. Les Invalides subway is about a 5-7 minute walk, but a very nice neighborhood.

Nice hotel in great locationPosted Sep 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Spent two nights on vacation with daughter. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to Luxumbourg Gardens and tons of great restaurants in Montparnasse. Free minibar soft drinks is a nice touch.

Grand time in ParisPosted Sep 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
We spent 3 nights at the very tidy, very friendly Hotel Chaplain Rive Gauche. Located in a charming neighborhood right near Montparnasse Blvd and the myriad of fine restaurants there as well as an easy walk to the Metro a block away, meant all of Paris was at our feet in just minutes. The hotel is charming, small rooms in the euro style but very clean and fun decorations abound. The staff is Grade A number one....helpful and friendly. Free wi-fi is nice. Thanks for a pleasant stay.

Great LocationPosted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
It is a very small beautiful and well organised hotel. We loved everything about the hotel. To start with, it is in a very good area of Paris, near restaurants and cafes where the local French spend time at. It is literally by the metro stop, same line that takes you to the 2 main train stations for suburban transfers. The room was small but as expected, but very user friendly, clean and nicely decorated and renovated. The bathroom was amazing and at very good size. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly, in fact the friendliest of all hotels staff we dealt with throughout our travels in Europe.

Quaint hotelPosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was wonderful. On one occasion we met the owner and made a suggestion and it was taken care of right away. The room was clean but small, although we understand that is typical for Europe. Close to a metro stop and not too far from a hop on hop off bus stop. However, since the hotel is on a small street, we suggest that if you take the metro to get there the first time you get specific directions about how to get to the hotel from the metro stop. We would stay there again.

Compact boutique hotel located in a quiet street.Posted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: The hotel is compact, the rooms modern and very comfortable. Ours had air conditioning and even a small balcony. The staff were very helpful.
Cons: The breakfast is served in the small but adequate reception area but the selection could be improved.
Location: The Montparnasse district is in the Latin Quarter and was frequented by French artists and writers who's images are displayed in local cafes. The hote
We were looking for an alternative to the Saint-Germain distict which is more central but expensive so selected the Montparnasse district in the Latin Quarter. The hotel is 20-mins walk from the Louvre so jump on the Metro and everything is easy to access from the nearby Vavin stop. We returned to the hotel on three occasions to eat locally. There is a great choice of restaurants and cafes within a five minute radius.
