"Very good hotel well situated."
Generally very good. The rooms were very clean and tidy and were refreshed daily. The bathroom was quirky with frosted glass panels. We took breakfast on two occasions wish was reasonable although they did run out of certain items which were immediately refilled by a quick trip to the local bakery by one of the staff. No tea/ coffee making facilities […] in the room which would have been a nice touch but that may be standard in French hotels. The room we had was compact but functional. The only issue we had was the two rooms next to ours were shared by the same family so they used a single door which was directly outside our room. Unfortunately they opened and closed the door on numerous occasions very late in the evening/ morning and had other relatives staying in the hotel knocking the door to gain access and having a chat. Would I recommend this hotel and use it again "yes" . Staff were very helpful and polite. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel in real Paris"
I used to live around the corner from where this hotel is and it really is a great neighborhood to see a slice of real Paris away from the tourist hordes. All renovated. Small rooms, but that's expected for Paris. Comfy beds and very good staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A good place to stay"
A clean modern hotel close to metro with friendly and helpful staff. Breakfasts well worth having and room a reasonable size for Paris.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice modern hotel"
It was my best hotel experience in Paris and I have stayed in Paris many times, usually for work. The normal price would have been too expensive for my budget but the deal through expedia made it affordable and such good value for the money. Modern, comfortable room with a practical bathroom with a large shower (so rare in Paris). My room was like the […] picture on their website! Staff was friendly and I notice they are multilingual. The breakfast buffet offered a nice selection for a French breakfast. Good neighborhood with restaurants, a Monoprix and metro station nearby. I do recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good overall hotel, poor wifi"
Reasonable hotel, good given the surrounding hotels. I had a higher end room, bed was really good and bad tube very comfortable (I am tall, so this is usually a problem for me). Service in the hotel was very good, I had very poor wifi connectivity in the room (nr. 17), not able to skype or watch TV, browsing was slow. No internet reception at all on […] my iphone. Breakfast is cheap, but not much either (an egg, croisant and some toast), I rather grabbed a sandwhich from a bakery. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here with my girlfriend over valentines day, the room was contemporary, clean and spacious. The staff were incredibly helpful, any time we needed something, they didn't hesitate to help.

"Good value with late deal."
Fred Hotel in the 14th was good value with the late 50% off deal. Quiet hotel, comfortable bed. Recently decorated room was clean and bright - although the orange and black colour scheme was a bit 80s! Bathroom had some design flaws - shower glass wasn't long enough to prevent a lot of water getting on the floor however careful we were. Likewise shallow […] sink had no plug, and wooden surround inevitably got flooded. Staff were variable. The chap who oversees breakfast was spectacularly oppressive - did he think we were going to make off with the butter or something!? And the otherwise friendly girl on reception our first night simply failed to get us a taxi to our restaurant despite having 45 minutes notice. Yup, no taxis in Paris at all. Amazing. We walked, both ways, in the cold and rain and with me in high heels. But another older woman on reception could not have been more helpful, getting us a table reservation at once in the busy restaurant of our choice. Breakfast itself was ok - 12 Euros a hit - although nothing special and the only cooked option was a boiled egg you had to cook yourself. A bit of a way out - and the metro change at Montparnasse is no fun. But we ate out three times near the hotel very enjoyably - at L'Essentiel, Le Severo, and Le Cantine du Troquet. I think we'll try to find somewhere closer to the centre next time - or at least served by taxis! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great design and great value."
Situated on a quiet street a short walk from the Metro, this is a seriously stylish hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great boutique hotel base for business or leisure (change at Montparnasse metro has a bit of a walk bit not so much). Neighbourhood has a nice vibe - Rue Raymond Losserand has lots of bakeries and places to eat. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are not the biggest but are done our really well, contemporary and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was decent for a three day stay. The room was TINY! My one disappointment is that there was no separation between the sleeping area and the bathroom. You can quite literally see someone using the washroom. Would have liked the washroom separated off with real walls instead of glass.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant place in Montparnasse"
Fred is a well-run and welcoming small hotel in Morntparnasse. Excellent breakfast available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent modern hotel"
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was beautifully furnished with quirky pieces dotted around the lounge area. Our room had lovely comfortable beds, flat screen tv, great lighting, a dulce gusto coffee machine and free WiFi! The staff were exceptional - helpful and friendly. Lots of nice cafes and shops nearby too. Recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review

hotel is located on metro line 13. it's not located centrally, but it is located in a quite safe neighbourhood. hotel staff was helpful and friendly. hotel was clean and nice. only things I didn't like was the shower. it's not properly enclosed, so the water splashes everywhere in the bathroom. and some of the rooms had a bad wireless signal.

Fantastic little hotel, convenient to the metro . Staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a n excellent weekend in Paris and made more enjoyable by staying in this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had an enjoyable stay here,OK the rooms are small but very modern.We did not get a queen bed with our superior room,but they changed us to a larger bedroom,with a queen bed,when one became available.Don't worry about breakfasts,lots of places nearby,no coffee facilities in rooms but we had orange juice ,fruit and pastrys for breakfast,plenty of choice […] just round the corner for 4.50 euro for two. Wide choice of restaurants too,all nearby.Metro is a short walk away,nice to be slightly out of the City,we found the best deal was a pack of 10 metro tickets.Overall we were very pleased with Fred Hotel and would stay here again. Transfer tip,use Super Shuttle,£70 return for two,door to door,excellent service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel - super staff!"
Fred Hotel is a modern boutique style hotel. The rooms are lovely, stylish, clean and (for the deluxe rooms at least) pretty spacious by Paris standards! The staff are particularly great - super helpful and friendly, really making us feel welcome and doing everything they could to help. The hotel is in the 14th arrondissement in an area that a little […] far from the sights, but the metro is very near so you can easily get to wherever you need to. Highly recommended for a short visit to Paris! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A little gem"
This is a lovely hotel and I would stay here again but if you like your bedroom to be spacious, I would look elsewhere - particularly in regard to the shower - I am 5ft 7in tall, medium build (ho!ho!) and it was cosy in there. The major plus point for me is the staff. My wife had her handbag stolen one evening and after having no luck at the police […] station we arrived back at the hotel feeling rather dispirited. The gentleman at the front desk was kindness personified and I can't thank him enough. One further suggestion - if you are having breakfast at the hotel, treat it as if you are at home. The breakfast staff flit in and out so you may be left to your own devices somewhat. This is not a criticism just an observation. Considering this is Paris, the continental breakfast (if you want a cooked breakfast look elsewhere) was good value at 12 euros. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great family hotel"
We travelled as a family of 2 adults and a 13 year old. The hotel is in a nice quiet street. It is also very close to the main street which gives access to many shops and places to eat. Also very close to 2 metro stations. The hotel is very quite and the staff are really helpfull. The rooms are well kept and stylish with a daily room service. We really […] enjoyed our stay here. One minor irritation was the bathroom. The toilet is so close to the sink you struggle to sit on it properly. Also the shower head has been fitted 3/4 along the bath so you have to partly stand on the raised end of the tub which was not easy. It feels as though every aspect of the bathroom has been squeezed in. As i said a minor irratation but it would not put us off using the hotel again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Highly recommended - would stay again"
Excellent hotel. The air conditioning was wonderful as the weather was really hot. Breakfast was well worth having with plenty of choice e.g. Pastries, fresh fruit, eggs, bread/toast, cooked meats, yoghurts, juice & hot drinks. Staff friendly and helpful. Room cleaned daily. Bed very comfortable. Stairwells a bit dark and dingy but not a problem. Good […] location on a quiet side street midway between 2 metro stations (line 13). A good selection of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Supermarket on the corner of the street and a fresh fruit and veg market on Sunday morning at the other end of the street (turn left out of the hotel). Highly recommended.

An outstanding service, wonderful staff and excellent services, couldn't rate the hotel highly enough. Intimate and friendly with a personal touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
Small-ish but excellent clean, modern rooms. Friendly staff. Wifi good (helps as no international channels on TV). Very near metro. Only down-side was breakfast as extra, which should really be included (there's are good places for coffee and morning breakfast goods in Rue Raymond Looserand, which has a nice vibe). There are cheaper hotels in the area […] but if booked or you like to have more of a designer feel, go with this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great area in Paris!!"
Excellent hotel, very close to the metro, cafes all around and the staff very friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was fine. The big draw is the decor which is modern and stylish. Positive: friendly staff, decent neighborhood not too far from the major tourist attractions, comfortable room. Negative: the bathroom was a bit cramped and we couldn't get an extra pillow as requested. Would recommend if the price is right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A perfect stay in Paris :)"
Fantastic hotel! My boyfriend and I stayed here Tuesday-Friday. It was our first visit to Paris and so we weren't really sure where the hotel was in comparison to any attractions. It was extremely close, 3/4 mins on the metro that was across the road. The trains and metros are the best way to explore the city. We got the RER train and metro from CDG […] (couple of changes) to Plaisance- the nearest metro, no problem at all. The hotel was gorgeous, great price we paid. Lovely boutique style, just perfect for a few days. We didn't have the 12 euro breakfast as there are some amazing patisseries on the main street that we grabbed croissants from every morning on the way to the metro. The rooms are very clean an have everything you need, including a small balcony. The staff were extremely friendly and were always happy to help. It was no problem at all to leave our bags there on the final day as we had a late flight. We ate at a few restaurants on the main street including a AMAZING Chinese half way up the street on the same side. Also, if you're 25 or under have your driving licence or passport with you when you go to museums as you get in for free without queuing at the main ticket area- massive bonus! Overall we had a fantastic trip and I loved going back to our lovely hotel at the end of a long day walking around the city. We would return to the same hotel without a doubt! Perfect stay :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A great little find!"
Great little hotel, especially for the price! 5 minutes walk from Pleisance Metro station giving you great access to the city. Rooms are a bit small but you expect that in Paris. Breakfast not really worth €12, especially with the quality of the city's patisseries. All in all, a great hotel, with superb staff!Genuine Expedia guest review

Enjoyed our stay in this small and friendly hotel. All the staff were excellent and spoke good English.

First time in France. Had the greatest service ! Friendly staff 24/7 ! Rooms are rather small in comparison with North American standard room size. Good for one or two person (for our room anyway).

"trying hard but poor location"
recently stayed at the Fred Hotel. it has been recently modernised but some deluxe rooms lack a shower and on the top floor the sloping roof severly resticts access to already small rooms. it is in a poor area of paris and although advertised in the montparnasse are it is 3 stops away on the metro. the breakfast room simply cannot accomadate more tha […] 8 people at anyone time so aften a wait for a table. the other problem was our room was on the ground floor next to the smoking area where the breakfast waiter and night porter gathered to talk loudly and smoke from 6.00am.

"Great little hotel"
Next door to Plaisance metro with quick access to central Paris. Our room was (for this price in Paris) spacious, had a coffee machine, hair dryer, TV, excellent airconditioning, I would rate it more than the three stars the ministry of tourism have given them. Over the last 30 years I have had hundreds of nights in Paris, Fred is one of the better. […] Breakfast is basic, but adequate - boil your own egg. Friendly and helpful staff with good english. I will come back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice little hotel"
Good location, about 2 minutes from Plaisance metro station, nearby bakery with V good baguettes, several supermarkets and laundrettes (avoid cafe on corner next to metro station---they serve frozen crepes). Some problems with the bathroom in one room (no bracket to hand shower head on to wall). Coffee machine in room, but no kettle for tea. Friendly […] staff. Room a little small if you have the sofa extended to make a bed for accompanying child, hotel probably better for couples than families. Very slow wifi connection. Breakfast is expensive.

I will first start out by saying the hotel itself has a great look, design, and modern atmosphere. With that said, the Fred Hotel's staff is incompitent, lazy, and unhelpful. When it came to cleaning the room, our beds were always made but everything else in the room from the coffee pods to the toilet paper were rarely refilled. At one point we actually […] had to ask the maid for more toilet paper, even though she had just finished with our room minutes before. When it came to asking for ice, we were directed to try the bar across the street. When we needed to use the hotel lobbies computer for its printer, the internet was down, not uncommon, but the receptionist could not be bothered to get up from the lounge area where he was watching T.V. to instruct us that the internet was in fact down. Instead he desided to shout that the internet was down, then wave us off with not so much as a smile. On a final note, upon checkout the receptionist was very confused if I had already infact paid my bill, which I promptly showed him the confirmation email and bank record of the sale back on the 11th of July. He was still unconvinced, resulting in another fifteen minutes of blankly staring and clicking around on his computer, finally resulting in taking down my credit card information and we were finally able to leave. In my opinion for the price and location of the hotel, keep looking when you search and overlook this hotel, you wont regret it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely hotel, really good position for seeing sites of Paris. Staff were perfect - slept in late, missed breakfast but were offered free coffee before checking out.
