We found that there is almost too much choice when booking hotels in Paris, and ultimately chose this one after many hours of internet searching based on the location and the price. We didn't want to spend too much, as we weren't planning on spending much time at the hotel, so the main thing was finding a comfortable place we could use as a base to see the main sights.
The location is good. We flew in to CDG and took the RER B to Port Royal, which was about a 5 minute walk to the hotel. On our first day we walked from the hotel to the Eiffel Tower, and on our second we walked from the hotel to the notre dame cathedral then all along the river to the Arc de Triomphe before getting the Metro back. If you'd prefer to take the metro everywhere there are multiple stops within a 10 minute walk, so very well connected for most of central Paris.
Around the hotel there are probably more than 100 restaurants within walking distance in the Montparnasse area, so plenty to choose from.
We didn't eat at the hotel (including breakfast) so can't comment on the food. The one negative I would say is that the room is on the small side (the bed is a very small double) and the wall to the bathroom is very thin, meaning you can hear everything.
Overall, a great location, a comfortable hotel and for a good price. We would stay here again. less
