“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

We weren't able to have TripAdvisor pick our hotel in Paris -- it was designated by the conference we were attending. This is the second time that this conference has used this hotel, and I think in the intervening seven years, it's gone downhill, now more oriented to inexpensive family lodging rather than business people or serious tourists.

The hotel isn't awful, it's just lackluster. Smallish rooms with no upholstered chair to read in, no in-room coffee pot, no rack to sit a suitcase on (or room to put one). Free internet, but enormous nuisance value to connect: they require you to use an 8-random-character userID and password that have to be re-entered every time you log on, and you need to get a new set of them every two days. Separate UserID and password if you want to use your smart phone.

One of the two torturously slow elevators broke down on the day we arrived (trapping two of our fellow conferees for half an hour). They reported that pushing the "call for help" button reached some general service that could not tell which hotel the call was coming from. Six days later, the elevator was still out of order.

Breakfasts fine, but half the time the salt and pepper shakers were either missing or empty, and they were slow to replenish empty buffet trays.

In general, the problem with Villa Modigliani is not the facility, it's the level of service and the service attitude. Mostly the attitude is "C'est impossible!" no matter what you ask for.

The location is pretty good, among a lot of restaurants and near three Metro lines. There's a Saturday morning fruit/veg/meat/fish/flowers fare a block away whose offerings are stunningly beautiful. Oh, to have Paris produce back home! But in general, I'd give Villa Modigliani a pass.

Spent a lot of time looking for an hotel in Paris, close to a metro station, not very expensive, not too far from attractions. Eventually I found this hotel and booked. Getting in there was easy from the closer metro station. The hotel was very nice and clean, we decided to avoid breakfast there and it was a good choice, there is plenty of places in the surroundings with very good breakfast offers. The pub in front of hotel was also a nice discovery to take the last beer before going to bed. If you are looking for a base to visit Paris, this is the right place. If you are looking for an hotel to spend your day, you need to look for other places.

I had a good stay here at the beginning of the summer. We stayed for three nights in one of the triple rooms (bunk beds + one double bed), and we were reasonably comfortable. There was enough room for all of us to sit around in the room containing the double bed (bunk bed is in the hallway area) and a decent amount of storage for our backpacks. The bathroom was also decent sized, and the rooms have large windows looking out to the courtyard that give you a nice breeze during the day. The courtyard is a nice component of the hotel - rooms facing it will stay quiet at night so you can leave your windows open. They have sets of table and chairs in the courtyard and don't mind if you bring a bottle of wine or lunch to enjoy out there. Rooms were very clean, and the price was reasonable for 3 people even at the beginning of peak tourist season when we booked only two weeks out.

Hotel is in a nice neighborhood. Only a few blocks from the Luxembourg Gardens and the Raspail metro station. However, this neighborhood definitely gets quiet at night.

The hotel is located off the main Blvd. Montparnass, close to three different Metro stations, to great restaurants, many coffee shops and a large shopping center. A large front yard locates the hotel far from the street and a small patio in the back is nice for relaxation.
