... looking at the tower on this sunny day! The area surrounding the tower is like a large park and as you head to the far end, there is a great work of art called Mur de la Paix which means the wall for peace. It has phrases etched in glass and there was even a foreign soldier standing inside when we were by it. Very beautiful piece to add to the area.
The area directly next to the eiffel tower is Invalides. Les Invalides officially known as L'Hôtel national ...
... parked behind him, again we were wrong as he drove forward into his 100th million point turn. Eventually the car made into in the gap with maybe 30cm at either end of the car.
As this driver was walking away the driver of the car park in front of him turned up to leave, both the driver and passenger observed and evaluated the situation and in they hoped. We thought they were in a pickle as surely they couldn't get this car our of the car park without asking the smart car driver ...
... the same line and has the same number and colour, it goes north instead of south. So I of back another hour to the station I first got on the RER at and transfer once more. By the time I got to Versailles, I was done. I really wanted to get on the train and go back to the hostel. But I figured, I'd come all that way and I'm sure I would enjoy it once I got started. And besides, I had vowed at that time to never return to Paris, so it was now or never. But did I enjoy it? ...
... did see a proposal, right next to us in fact. A man in his late 50's and his much younger, Asian boyfriend, who laughed "finally" as he took the ring. I stopped Brendan from taking a photo, as it was their moment and I didn't want them to see us staring, let alone taking pictures.
When we gt back down to the bottom, the sun was starting to set, so we waited a while for the tower to be lit up. Luckily for us, there happened to be a ...
So, that's it. The next day was just flying back home, which went pretty smoothly. We returned home to our dogs (who may have forgotten about us, as they were under the excellent care of Dejo's 2 brothers Andrew & Jerome, for which we are SO grateful). Jetlag messed with our sleeping schedules for about a week, and we started watching some of the stage replays on the DVR, confirming that we'll never watch the Tour -- or any other bike race - the same way ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Apollon Montparnasse Paris
Quaint and well located
Very friendly staff, great location 1 block from metro and in walking distance to AirFrance shuttle service to airport. Near a bakery and great local dining. Economical, the rooms are a bit small for American standards, but comfortable. Great air-conditioning and water pressure.
Jewel of a Paris hotel!
Outstanding location: Close to Montparnasse RR (and from there by bus to Charles de Gaulle airport), 100m to Metro (Pernety), bakery, Chinese, Italian, Japanese & French restaurants; post office around corner; small supermarket 5 min away; FREE Internet; quiet at night; helpful, friendly & knowledgeable owner is personally on the premises; efficient reservations promptly confirmed by fax or e-mail
OVERALL: Super value for my money! Would not stay anywhere else in Paris.
Hotel tres charmant
nous avons passé un week end magnifique à l'hotel Apollon
Montparnasse. accueil chaleureux, les chambres charmantes et propre.l hotel est à promité de la gare montparnasse, donc en 10 minutes à pied. quartier très agréable et vivant.
définitivement nous reviendrons dans ce charmant hotel pour notre prochain week end à paris.
We booked this hotel based on recommendations from TripAdvisor.com, and in truth, it wasn't too bad. We were biased, however, but the WONDERFUL time we had had earlier in the vacation at the Hotel de la Porte Doree, so I'll try to be as objective as I can.
we have vacationed in Paris for more than 20 years. We knew the area around the Hotel Apollon, but always stayed in a 3 star hotel on the basis that it would be larger, nicer, air conditioned, etc. When our favorite hotel raised their price to 130 euros and the euro / dollar rate declined by 30%, we started looking for a more economical alternative. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the rooms, comfortable bed, the nice and very large lobby, the complete breakfast for 6,50 euros, a friendly staff and charming hotel. we really appreciate the private parking there while we unloaded the car. Double glazing on the streetside windows ensures a quiet night, although we had the windows open and there isn't much traffic. The bistro recommended by the front desk was very nice, although not too many locals were dining there the night we went. We have already reserved for the next three trips.
Look elsewhere if you can
I stayed for just one night and went to another area. I had a very small single room, clean but worn. The desk clerk was very nice and helpful but the area and hotel seemed dreary. I walked several blocks in all directions and couldn't find a cafe that seemed inviting. The hotel looks nothing like the web and brochure pictures.
I really recommend this great hotel!
i stayed with my husband 3 nights in this hotel and we enjoyed a lot our stay!! the hotel is very confortable, very well decorated and very clean!!We appreciated the air conditionning and the situation of the hotel near the metro station, Pernety (less than 1 minute by walk), the train station and the bus stop Air France. The staff is very helpful, I asked for a journey trip around paris and the receptionist helped me to find the best tour, i appreciated a lot.
I often go to paris, and this is my favourite hotel! I recommend it and i am sure that you won t be disappointed.
Stayed here in October, 2004. This hotel is located within a block of the Pernety Metro station. Our room overlooked the street, and was on the second floor. One bonus was that both the bedroom and bathroom had large windows that opened so it helped the room feel a little less tiny. The decor was very tasteful and they were even putting new carpet in the hallways when we were there. The hotel staff was terse but polite, and very efficient. Definitely get the hotel breakfast for 6.50 - it included coffee or tea, plus a croissant and a roll with butter, cheese, jelly. Normally we would have eaten in a patisserie, but none of the patiesseries in the area had a place to sit, so the little breakfast room downstairs from the lobby was quite pleasant.
Loved this charming hotel!
I stayed in this very pleasant hotel for 5 nights and i really recommend it. the lobby and the rooms are well decorated, clean and very comfortable. the hotel is equiped of air conditionning and very closed to the montparnasse station and the metro station. the staff is very nice, i really enjoyed my stay in hotel apollon!!
