... like a shuttle that we shared with 3 other people. And we were so lucky to be in the front so we got chatting to the driver and he was like our tourist guide. Em and I were snapping away taking photos and getting very excited.I decided while in Paris we wouldn’t booked anywhere really flash we stayed at the Ibis Hotel Paris Canal St MartinJemmapes. A very basic small room with a shower and toilet but in ...
... leave (well that's what it seemed like!) We arrived at the Gallieni Coach Station in Paris 45 minutes late (19.00), so we didn't try & walk. Eventually bought a carnet of Metro tickets at the machine and caught the Metro to Pere Lachais stop and walked a few hundred metres to our hotel - Hotel Obododo. Got there with 10 minutes to spare - check in was until 20.00.
Room looked okay - yes, it is the only room with a balcony; however, the balcony ...
... the food wasn't) and we spent probably best part of an hour looking over Paris and taking the occasional photo whilst munching croissants and toast. We felt a tad underdressed as the waiters were wearing suits and ties!
We returned to the station and caught the Metro in to the "Cite" station, there we walked down along the river to Notre Dame and decided to walk to the Louvre with GG and his trusty iPad ...

Then off up the Eiffel Tower - you definitely need a head for heights - right to the top where you can toast each other with champagne to celebrate the liberation of France from the Occupation and freedom.

Who has now ditched him for a girl, except all they have been doing for the past month is stay at Dave's place in Sorento, Italy. Not the worst place to be in the world. But after a month I think I'd want to get moving ...

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!!
