Located in one of our favourite districts in Paris, MontparnasseHôtel Le M is probably one of the most fashionable hotels we have stayed so far. Animal print carpets, pictures of stilettos, fashion magazines in the hotel's library, trendy colours and contemporary art in the lobby - all those elements create a hip ambience and are a constant reminder that you are in one of the world's most important fashion capitals - Paris.

Fashion Studio Magazine had a pleasure to visit Hôtel Le M in the end of August 2013. We stayed in the beautiful room 112 which features its own private terrace, spacious bathroom with a movable makeup mirror, heated towel rack, comfortable bath, and Charles Aurel toiletries.

The hotel offers four different room categories: Classic, Comfort, Cosy, and Family. For more information about available room types, please click here.

Most of rooms are equipped with a glass panel with adjustable visibility which separates the bedroom from the bathroom and lets natural daylight into the later.
