“Wonderful Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

Our 5 days in Paris were immeasurably enhanced by our choice of hotel. The Hotel Montalembert, located between the Left Bank and Blvd. St. Germain des Pres, is near elegant shops and many interesting venues, such as the Musee d'Orsay and the Louvre.
Our room and bath were well-appointed. The bed was quite fine. The bar and breakfast were also enjoyable. Particular praise though is reserved for the staff, who were more than helpful. Their advise was on spot, as were their recommendations. We will certainly visit HM again.

We just returned from a week at Hotel Montalembert in Saint Germain des Pres, would love to book this hotel again and would highly recommend it to friends.

We chose it based on the excellent location, in the heart of the charming, elegant, non-touristy Left Bank. The hotel is in easy walking distance to the Rue de Bac metro, countless memorable restaurants and cafes and an enticing mix of boutiques. Beyond great one-of-a-kind restaurants and shops, in 10 minutes you can be walking across the Seine to the spectacular gardens of the Tuileries and the Louvre. We booked a month in advance online and got a discounted book-ahead rate, meanwhile both the reservation staff and the concierge were very responsive and accommodating of special requests via email. Our room was ready early when we arrived, to our delight our Junior Suite was on the top floor with a view of the Eiffel Tower, absolutely spectacular, especially at night when it lit up and sparkled on the hour.

Our room and wash room were spacious and comfortable for two people staying a week, with plenty of closet space and thoughtful amenities like a Nespresso machine for coffee, Babyliss hair-dryer and L'Occitane toiletries. We celebrated a birthday during our stay and they welcomed us with champagne and left thoughtful extras like a mini box of chocolates when our room was made up. Our room was contemporary, elegant and comfortable, in soothing colours of beige, chocolate and deep eggplant, much like the lobby. It's worth mentioning that the bed was extremely comfortable, our room was quiet and the blackout shades made for a great night's sleep. [Other than having coffees upon arrival, we didn't eat at the hotel restaurant or order room service. It wasn't necessary with so many options in the neighborhood, including L'Atelier de Joel Robichon right next door and an excellent patisserie [Eric Kayser] on nearby Rue de Bac.

Beyond the rave-worthy location and the quiet luxury of the interior space, what was truly outstanding about our stay was the staff and service. Everyone at the front desk and door was friendly, helpful, gracious and knowledgable, most especially the head concierge extraordinaire, Gilles. He was absolutely brilliant at multi-tasking, anticipating our tastes and making restaurant and sight-seeing suggestions, just the epitomy of professionalism, charm and grace under pressure. All in perfect English. Some of the outstanding restaurants we enjoyed based on his recommendations were nearby Le Restaurant on Rue des Beaux-Arts, Al Dente on Rue de Varenne, and a short cab ride away, Mon Viel Ami, one of the better options open on a Sunday night.

We were very happy with our choice and would consider this an ideal home-away-from-home in Paris.

Room Tip: The extra space of a Junior Suite was well worth it for longer stays, our top-floor room had a view...

While the owners have worked hard to upgrade the entrance to the hotel, the small sitting and dining area and the lounge area with a warm fireplace - it all ends when you walk into the very tired rooms. Like most boutique hotels in Paris - rooms are small - but these are quite dowdy and are in need of a major redo along with the hallways on each floor.

Going in February when business is slow for them was worthwhile since the special rate included breakfast and a ride to the airport (gratis).....

stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute! The hotel's location is convenient to almost anywhere.
The Musee d"Orsay is a 5 minute walk away as is the Seine. Quiet street for sleeping but just a 15 minute walk to Odeon and the Latin Quarter. Rue De Bac metro is 2 blocks away and so is St. Germain Des Pres Blvd. making it easy to get around.
The hotel is clean, the service is excellent and the bathroom toiletries are L'Occitaine. So thoughtful that they even include foot cream which is great after a day of walking the streets of Paris. Had a room on the top floor which has an amazing view of the Eiffel and Les Invalides! It was fabulous watching the Eiffel sparkle from the balcony at night. Comfy beds and again they are so thoughtful as to leave you a card with the next day's forecast (in centigrade AND Fahrenheit), when they turn down the bed. Friendly staff, always helpful and they even printed out a map of directions when asked for a particular location. Room 83 is a suite with 3 balconies, a flat screen tv in the bedroom and living room. Apparently, they even have DVDs you can ask for to watch in your room, but the weather was awesome and thus evenings were spent out. Definitely look forward to staying there again.

The brief for a hotel in Paris was - centrally located, boutique, child (8 yr old) friendly and as good as The Covent Garden Hotel. We were recommended the Hotel Montalembert. It ticked these boxes and the staff were very friendly but it was disappointing. Whilst it is a great location, left bank - St Germain, the area had no soul (just really expensive cafes and a building site opposite), the (expensive/premium!) room was very pokey, the bath plug didn't work (let water out nearly as quickly as it went in) and the hotel didn't have any character - breakfast was like being in any cheap Travelodge. In retrospect, having walked around a fair bit of Paris that weekend, I would argue that the right bank is a better bet - Le Marais was great fun for instance.
Tip - if you have to go to St Germain, eat at Le 20, rue Bellechasse - great food, well priced.

Dear Madam, Dear Sir,
Thank you very much for your post. We are deeply sorry that we have not meet all your expectations during your stay.
The Hotel Montalembert is recognized for its personalized service. Should you have mentioned these details to our staff during your stay, we could have reacted on the spot. Our rooms have a standard size for a Left Bank property, so perhaps a suite would have been more appropriate regarding your demand.
Regarding our breakfast menu, it features different types of breakfasts : continental breakfast, low fat breakfast, and “a la carte” (all home maid: omelets, eggs any style, cheese, pancakes, bagels, oat meal, smoked salmon...)
Christian Liaigre is a French famous designer selected round the world by exclusive properties but we totally understand that design is a personal perception.
We look forward to have the pleasure to host you again and our Concierge and the entire team will be taking care of you.
