... a rest we headed out for a night tour advertised as a great way to see the city of lights! We knew heading out that it would be light for at least part of it since we were nearing the longest day of the year, but it really was a let-down. The views of Paris were amazing, don’t get me wrong, and we had a great time despite the Australians we bumped into complaining that 3 of the shops they went ...

It was probably THE Most kindest thing any one has ever done for me...or comes a close second to my girlfriends throwing my 50th party for me!!!!

We started at the wrong end so walked & walked & walked!! Then they had none in stock!! The place was packed. Assistant told us to pop back in the morning- not afternoon- because, as she ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mayet Paris
This is Paris?
Just returned from 8 days in Paris with my wife. The first two nights we stayed at the Mayet, seduced by the clean design orientation of the property as presented online. The location was a long way from anything a non-business traveler would be interested in seeing, and the nearest Metro station (Duroc) requires a change of lines to get anywhere. If you're planning a pleasure trip to Paris you'd do well to choose a hotel other than the Mayet where you'll waste half your time just trying to get out of the backwater area. The place is clean and the beds are great, so if you just want to sleep in Paris this might be the hotel for you.
Good Hotel, but I bit overrated
We stayed in Hotel Mayet 3 nights. The rooms are very small (like everywhere in Paris) but very clean and in modern design. I didnīt like the breakfast room for it is absolutely too tiny with too many chairs around one table. Breakfast buffet was often empty and staff down there not too friendly. Receptionists, however, did a very good job.
Location is great. Price however some 20 Euro for too high.
What a find!
The Hotel Mayet was wonderful. We stayed there for four restful nights. The hotel is modernly furnished and yet very chaming. Although, the rooms were on the small side, the space is more than adequate because of the ample closet space and drawers. The beds were also quite comfortable. The entire staff was very warm and helpful. Another perk the Mayet had was complimentary internet access. I could check my e-mail ...free! The location is also prime (close to the metro for siteseeing and walking distance from stores, including the Bon Marche). I highly recommend this hotel!
A lovely hotel just off Boulevard Montparnasse. We stayed seven nights. The hotel is quiet, clean, and well run.
The hotel is well situated on a quiet street, near shops, restaurants, and two metro lines (Duroc and Vaneau).
Highly recommended - we were even able to check our email each day on the computer in the lobby.
The hotel also has safes for use, free of charge, and we used these to store our valuables and passports.
The breakfast was adequate - croissants, baguettes, tea, coffee, OJ, jam, butter, etc.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
All in all, a very reasonably priced hotel for the quality.
A home away from home in Paris
My husband and 2 sons travelled to Paris for a week in March and stayed at the Hotel Mayet in the 6th arrondisement. This young and friendly hotel is impeccably clean and runs like a top. We got 2 rooms - a necessity - the rooms are very small. However, the beds and linens are top quality and the bath is modern. The design of this hotel is well thought out and not a bit of space is wasted. The breakfast (included) is good and the breakfast room spotless. The location is about 5 minutes from the hub of things which makes this hotel quiet at night.
The neighborhood has several good restaurants and nice antique shops. A 5 minute walk in any direction brings you are near cafes on Blvd Montparnasse, to Bon Marche heading toward Notre Dame, or to Napoleon's Tomb heading toward the Eiffel Tower. It was always good to see Rue Mayet at the end of a busy day of sightseeing. The best part about this hotel is the lovely people who work here. Each was as friendly and helpful as the last - not a sour note in the place. The rooms are small, as I mentioned, and there is no air conditioning so in summer it would be hot.
Great staff & location
Very clean hotel close to many cafes & shop's the staff was great. I would stay here again & again.
Mayet is a hidden gem!
I just returned from an 8 day stay at the Mayet. My fiance and I travelled with another couple, and we were all a bit fearful of such a relatively cheap Parisien hotel. However, the Mayet was fabulous! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a modern, funky hotel on the Left Bank. The Duroc Metro is steps away, as is the Bon Marche, and Invalides. The rooms were on the small side, but decore was crisp and fun. Beds were very comfy as well. To top it off, the hotel staff went above and beyond and honored every request(even some quite bizarre from my fiance, who needs a glass of milk before bed!) The bathrooms were fine, as in most French hotels, you end up with some water on the floor, but good water pressure and always hot. I cannot say enough about the Mayet-we loved it and will be back again!
Great time in Paris.
Just returned from 6 days in Paris. Stayed at Hotel Mayet. Great little hotel at a very reasonable price(for Paris). Certainly different. Staff excellent, rooms very clean and hotel well positioned. Should try the restaurant next door, excellent food and lovely people. Don't bother with the Italian up the road. Good 3 course meal for 10 euros at Chez Marie in Monmatre.
My girlfriend and I spent 9 nights in Paris, early July at Hotel Mayet, rue Mayet. We loved the hotel! It is right near Duroc station (a main line), and you can easily walk everywhere inc tour Eiffel and Invalides. It was 100 euro/night and our room was cleaned each day and we were given fresh towels also! The shower was VERY small, so you wouldn't want to be fat. b'fast is included in the tariff and it is ok but there is an excellent bakery only a few metres away. The little restuarant next door is lovely and the host is charming! We'd recommend this hotel to anyone going to Paris! NB it is not a traditional hotel, but new, young, funky and clean!
We had a very nice stay in this hotel. It is very close to the metro, making any destination easy.While the rooms are quite small, they are very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable.Breakfast is simple, baguettes, jam, coffee etc... around the corner is a wonderful little bakery, the smells drove us crazy every time we passed.The hotel staff was very friendly, and provided recommendations of a couple of very good restaurants around the corner from the hotel.
