Bottom Line

This mid-range, 33-room boutique hotel in Montparnasse is within walking distance of a few sights, including the Luxembourg Gardens and Montparnasse Cemetery. Original touches, contemporary Parisian furnishings, and artisanal craftsmanship create a charming feel. Each room has its own distinct decor style, and amenities include minibars, flat-screen TVs and modern bathrooms (some come with large tubs and balconies). Windows have been soundproofed, but the hotel is on the corner of a busy intersection and many guests still complain of street noise; rooms facing the courtyard tend to be quieter. There are no real communal areas aside from the lobby, which features elegant furnishings and cheerful wall paintings. Breakfast is served in the historic lower level, but it does come with a hefty fee (room delivery is also available). Guests tend to avoid this option, as the bustling neighborhood is full of choices, including Café Montparnasse on the hotel's first level, which serves breakfast for a better price. All in all, it's a solid value on the Left Bank.

Map of Hotel Edouard VI Hotel

The Hotel Edouard VI takes up a prime corner building in the district of Montparnasse. This "Left Bank" location is walking distance to the Montparnasse Cemetery (many notable people are buried here) and the Luxembourg Gardens. The name originates from the nickname "Mount Parnassus" given to the hilly area in the 17th century by students who came there to recite poetry. This spot (later leveled off) is now known for cafes, bars, and crepe stands near the Gare Montparnasse. Guests will find plenty of Parisian charm in the immediate vicinity, or they can walk to Boulevard Saint Germain des Prés and the Latin Quarter. For further destinations, Montparnasse-Bienvenue metro station is nearby. The hotel can arrange airport shuttles.
