PARIS - Le Fabe is a small boutique hotel located in Montparnasse, the 14th arrondissement of Paris. 

Surrounded by coffee shops, patisseries, ethnic restaurants, fruit shops, florists, and small local stores, the hotel offers unique experience of living in a truly Parisian neighbourhood - on a quiet residential street, but not far away from the city centre.

Montparnasse became famous in the 1920s, referred to as 'les Années Folles' (the Crazy Years), and the 1930s as the heart of intellectual and artistic life in Paris. The area attracted people who came to live and work in the creative, bohemian environment.

FIRST IMPRESSION

Arriving at the hotel was a pleasant surprise. The check-in process was quick and efficient. I was offered a welcome drink and a tour of the hotel. The Hotel Manager was really friendly and eager to answer all my questions about the hotel amenities and the surrounding area.

What's really unique about Le Fabe: there are no room numbers, instead rooms have names inspired by the pictures inside - such as 'Desire', 'Passion' and 'Opium'.

The soundproofed guest rooms feature interesting artworks and are equipped with a minibar, a flat-screen TV, a radio and free Wi-Fi access. All rooms have a private bathroom with a hairdryer.

'Silk and drops' room offers a lot of space and natural light. The room has floor-to-ceiling window, a glass desk with a funky lamp, two separate wardrobes with sliding doors and big mirrors. There is a hot drinks machine which serves a selection of teas and excellent hot chocolate (recommended in the morning, after you wake up!).

Bathroom decor is simple and chic. The colour palette features elegant dark grey, white and silver. The sink has lots of space for cosmetics & toiletries making the bathroom very functional and pleasant to use. There is nothing better than having a relaxing bath after a long day of shopping and sightseeing.

  1. Thank you for providing the information. I was searching a good hotel in Paris as I decided to spend vacation over there but wasn't known about the hotels over there.
