Greetings from France! We hope you are having a great time. We are writing from Paris. The weather is cold but we don't mind. There are namy monumetns to visit like the Louvre museum. Yesterday, we visited the Eiffel tower. It;s very tall and much bigger than the White Tower.We also took an interview from Cisse, a football player and then we went …

Walking back to the apartment, we crossed the bridge Pont de l'Archevêché, where there were naturally musicians playing the violin and accordion. I've decided the accordion is one of the most beautiful/ most complicated instruments. Whenever I hear an accordion in the streets here, I feel like I'm in an impressionist painting. Which doesn't really make sense because paintings don't make sound so I'm not sure why I think that, but whatever. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Bretagne Montparnasse Paris
My husband an I had the most delightful trip to Paris. We stayed a small lovely hotel , Best Western, Mt. Parnassee. It is within walking distance of a major Metro ( subway station). We were able to see all the museums, Musee Dorsay (great impressionist paintings), Louve, Piacasso and Monet Museums-- Eifel Tower, Opera House and most all other major sites in Paris by train-- it took less than 30 minutes travel time for most.
If you like to take showers, beware of a few quirks in this hotel. The tub does not have a shower curtain (why I dont know, since a rod and curtain is not expensive). After taking a shower, the floor is all wet, even the carpet that fronts the bathroom entrance.
At first I was a little skeptical because it seemed smaller than the pictures...but it turned out to be so cozy!
Good Value for Money
Having stayed in Paris a number of times, we found this Hotel to be good value for money. The Hotel is by no means luxurious but the rooms are larger than average for Paris Accommodation, very clean and we found the staff very friendly. Ideally located for Montparnasse Tower, the Station and Metros but with a small selection of reasonably priced restaurants in the immediate vicinity. If you want luxury, great views in a touristy area this isn't the hotel for you but if you are looking for clean comfortable accommodation, well placed for transport around Paris this is a really good choice.
Best Western Bretagne
My husband and I and two of our teenage children stayed here in 2003. We found the staff helpful, however because we prepaid for the room, we think we had one of the worst rooms in the hotel. Certainly not like the ones reviewed above. So we would not ever do that again.
Our TV did not work nor did the air-conditioning; it was a very hot summer. The staff appeared willing to work on those problems but they were never resolved while we were there for three days.
I did like the area after having stayed in the 1st and 17th districts in previous stays. Lots of local restaurants that were good. ATM closeby as well as other little shops.
This hotel was ok, but we found it to be not very charming. It is clean and the staff is neutral - not rude, but not your best friend either. The bathrooms were clean, although the shower head is not attached to the wall, so you have to awkwardly hold the shower head above you...making for a flooded bathroom every morning. Or you take what my boyfriend lovingly called a "shath"...a shower doubling as a bath...;-)
I loved the hotel. It's colorful and well kept for the most part. We stayed in a two story room (the only one of it's kind) that slept four really comfortably.
This is a great little hotel in a nice street in Montparnasse. Only a stones throw from Montparnasse Cemetary and a short walk from the Montparnasse Tower and train station, this hotel offers a cheap way to stay in a great location. Rue Raymond Losserand is a bustling street with many great shops and a few nice restaurants and cafes. Boulevard Montparnasse is only a short walk away. The hotel itself is basic but the rooms are a decent size for Paris and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is also excellently placed if you are using the shuttle from Charles De Gaulle to Montparnasse - the bus stop is very close by. Highly recommended.
I agree with the last review. The hotel was nice, large room for the price in Paris. 4 to a room, worked well. Shops, bakeries, restaurants, supermarket nearby and easily accessible by foot.
Nice little Parisian hotel
I stayed at the BW Bretagne Montparnassee during a quick trip in January, 2004. It was a delightful little hotel, in a non-touristy part of Paris. The area is somewhat residential but is very close to shops and cafes. Metro access and a major train station are a few blocks away. The area felt safe, even late at night. The hotel is very close to the Cimetiere du Montparnasse, a well-known cemetery with several famous "residents". The Montparnasse cafes made famous during the artistic ex-pat days of the 20's and 30's are a short walk (a few blocks) away. The hotel is small but clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. A great place to stay to avoid the tourist crowds.
