TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Delambre Paris
My room was right off the lobby and I was afraid I'd be wakened early by the staff preparing for breakfast. However, there was a second door that I could close that muffled all sound. Nicely decorated room (tiny bit of wear and tear but nothing to complain about), and reasonably sized bathroom. I only stayed one night so can't opine re housekeeping or a long-term stay. Gentleman at the front desk was smiley and welcoming, and graciously put up with my French. The hotel is well located for Gare Montparnasse, and the next street over has several creperies. Boulevard du Montparnasse and the Cimitiere du Montparnasse are close by as well. As a single, female traveler, I felt safe at Hotel Delambre.

respect for their tradition to not walk through it.
After the Arc we began to walk down the Champs Elysee. I stopped at the first

... some more after having our free selection. This was followed up with a visit to a Belgian chocolate shop which was kind of "meh." As we walked to and visited those two shops, Nate became best friends with the tour guide. By the end of the tour she knew our itinerary, the fact that he's doing rock climbing when we get home, the aquatic center, that he plays soccer and likes Paris St. Germain football club (but not David Luiz) and that we have a shih tzu ...
... have champagne and snails....Ryan ate one...I of course did not but definetly polished off my champagne. We then went for a wonderful drive in the bus through the city of Paris at dusk seeing beautiful monuments and famous sights and did a walk to the Eiffel Tower. We got to see it sparkle and had a little kiss underneath. After we had a few drinks with the group where Ryan showed off his master of drinking game skills but quietly left for plenty of sleep for our big day ...
... the hotel. This is where everything goes south. It takes us about 30mins just to find the van and the guy. He had a small board with my name on it, both of us missed him. Once we got in, he had to wait for 2 more passengers, they took about 30-45mins to arrive. Finally we get on the road, and we go through over an hour worth of stop starting from traffic, then traffic lights. Colleen and I at this stage aren't feeling well, and to make things worse, we were the last to ...
