Montparnasse, Paris
(4.1/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Once a labyrinth filled with artists' studios and roaring cafes, most of Montparnasse was flattened during the 1960s to accommodate a train station and Tour Montparnasse, the only skyscraper in the main part of Paris. Over recent years, the area has evolved into a neighborhood where you can find reasonable short-term rentals, budget cafes, and a down-to-earth vibe that's missing from many of the trendier neighborhoods. Put Montparnasse into our Paris vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I went to Montparnasse looking for Magic describing the great authors of the 20TH century and only found decadence, camels and a dirty neighborhood with some remnants of what once was, a pity, although I have no regrets.

  • Very nice bathroom. Pretty quick and friendly service. However restaurant very very. .. very noisy. Do not make for an intimate dinner or head's head. The tables are very close one to the other... too bad. However do to the décor of the room. Too bad also that this brewery is more his stand d oysters.

  • It is recommended to have a view of the city and the Eiffel Tower, we always got to it but we never look it from another point. The terrace is in the floor 59. In the floor 56 there is a cafeteria. It is very organized.
