Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Next to Montparnasse train station and Galeries Lafayette
  • Clean and comfortable rooms with flat-screen TVs and contemporary decor
  • Free Wi-Fi offered throughout the hotel
  • Breakfast delivered to the room for no extra charge
  • Within two blocks of 4 different Metro lines
  • Modern business center with a Mac for guest use

Cons

  • Bathrooms are in need of an update
  • No elevator to front desk, must climb steep stairs
  • Location removed from top Paris attractions

Bottom Line

The Hotel Du Parc is a 36-room, mid-range property with colorful touches. Updated rooms are clean and contemporary, with free Wi-Fi and big colorful photographs of flowers. Simple bathrooms are in need of an update. The location is right by the Montparnasse train station and great shopping at famous Galeries Lafayette, but the location is a bit removed from the action of central Paris. However, there are several Metro stops within two blocks of the hotel. Hotel perks include a modern business center and breakfast delivered to the room at no extra charge. Travelers concerned about choosing the right neighborhood might want to compare prices with more centrally located hotels.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Very close to Montparnasse train station, Galeries Lafayette, and four subway lines

The Hotel Du Parc offers a nice location for those traveling by train, or people who don't mind having to take the Metro to main attractions. The hotel is on a small square between the Montparnasse train station and the Montparnasse Cemetery (the graveyard is actually one of the main draws to the area). There’s a lot of notable people buried here, such as the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty, Simone de Beauvoir, Samuel Beckett, Julio Cortazar, Porfirio Diaz, Alfred Dreyfus, and Susan Sontag.

Galeries Lafayette, arguably the most popular shopping mall in France, is less that five minutes from the hotel, and there are restaurants and other stores in the immediate neighborhood. Iconic attractions such as the Eiffel Tower and the Luxembourg Gardens are a quick metro ride or drive away.
