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.

Not too bad, but not fantastic
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.
This hotel is in a very regular, down-to-earth neighborhood of Paris. The residents seem to be from West Africa, and there were friendly folks, including lots of kids, strolling about. That was very nice: This is what it's like to live in work-a-day Paris.
There is a metro stop ("Pernety") just one block away, but it's not immediately apparent: You don't have to walk all the way out rue de l'Ouest to rue du Maine--I promise. It's very difficult, however, to navigate from the 13 metro line to many other places in Paris that we wanted to go, and we seemed always to be hiking across Montparnasse-Bienvenue to transfer, so that's not ideal.
The hotel was clean and fairly comfortable, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was so-so, and one of the days, we were actually served day-old bread, which just isn't done in French society. That was a disappointment.
The elevator is really rickety, and when three of us tried to use it, we got stuck and the night-clerk had to get us out. Don't go for a world record of piling into this tiny space! The climb up to the fourth floor on the spiral staircase was not for the faint of heart, I can tell you.
The air conditioning worked fine, and that was nice, but I had to gerry-rig the shower so the hand-held head would stay up. (If you've traveled in France before, you'll know what I'm talking about.)
We probably won't stay there again, but it wasn't too bad, as I said.
A very pleasant place to stay in Paris !!
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.
Good for the price
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.
Negatives: Since our room overlooked the street it was very noisy. Lots of traffic idling at the stoplights. It was a little quieter with the window closed.
The biggest negative for me was that there was a ton of hair all over my blanket. I understand that few hotels actually wash blankets between guest visits, but the wads of hair should have been a clue to the cleaning staff that it was time to throw the thing in the washer.
The bathroom was immaculately clean, and my husband's blanket was OK, but I have to say my blanket was a real turn off. Luckily I had a lint roller and, after filling up three sheets with hair, it was good again.
The area that the hotel is in is OK, not dirty or anything, but not exactly charming either. But, for the price we really couldn't complain. We only stayed in one other hotel in Paris, in the Montmartre district - the Timhotel Montmartre and it was so excellent that maybe it ruined us for all other Paris hotels.
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!!

After that we grabbed some lunch (we ate a lot in Paris and practically every meal was better than anything we had had in Ireland by some margin) and headed to Notre Dame. Notre Dame however had a line as well, and seeing that we had already been to Sacre Coeur we decided to head the Pompidou centre. This is an art gallery and features modern artists. We walked around for an hour and decided we really don’t get ...
... Rough is big ventilator from metro, if you want the Merillin Monrow picture from New York, here you have the perfect chance. BUT the ventilation is quite strong! :D
Oh an right across the street from Moulin Rough there is steak house. That’s what I need right now. Little bit prudent approach to the menu to check the prices. It doesn’t look bad, let’s go inside. Next time I have to go here with someone, asking for table for one is kinda ...
31st Aug today is our 1st day on our own since the tour ended, we took the Metro to the basilica at Sacre Coeur, & climbed & climbed & climbed the many steps out of the underground. No wonder the Parisienne's are so trim, many of them cycle, or walk or climb out of the Metro. Unfortunately we did not find the venicular as planned, until we were half way up the hill, so we climbed to the top, I will be so fit by the time I get home. It was ...
... the second floor, after this there is another huge line to get further up the Tower which we joined straight away.This meant another long wait in controlled lines, fortunately at times we were able to get a view over Paris in between the fog and rain.Eventually we got to the top, and the fog cleared sporadically allowing us to gaze over this beautiful city and spot several major landmarks.In spite of the rain, fog, waiting and ...
... colour on my skin (I’m still so white that you need sunglasses to look at my legs haha), while the others walked in the shade. After a long-ass 4km walk (way further than what we expected; the maps lie!), we finally got to Notre Dame. The line to get in was insanely long, and the idiots in it were so incapable of standing directly behind someone that the line was looping in on itself. Naturally, there were massive groups of Asians in the line, ...
