Hotel Le M
Travel Blogs from Paris
Paris was beautiful.
We stayed two short nights at Hotel Le M in Montparnasse. We were about a 25 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower, which was everything I wanted it to be.
... to find the hidden keystone, only to find that the church was not the hiding place at all). Naturally, being Christmas Day, the church was open and a service inside. We had to go inside! It is very strange observing a thoroughly religious service in a different language, but mostly it was the same. I felt that it was good practice for me before I start at a Catholic school!
Christmas lunch has always been important to me as it has been a time where we eat together as ...

The dinner at the Eiffel Tower restaurant was fine however we were at the side of the restaurant and did not have much of a view. Coming down from the first level of the tower presented a problem as we had to be back on the bus at a certain time and if we had waited in the queue for the lifts we would have miss the bus so we decided to walk down the stairs. Linda has a fear of heights so it took a ...
... Day. I have never been more stressed in my life – I felt like I was going to puke or cry or both! I really hate the feeling of being late and wasting money, two things that were about to happen. I saw my departure time come and go on the taxi clock and prayed that this would all work and I would make it to Madrid for my MS volunteer event the next morning. When I got to the station, I ran ...
... I am shown to the guest room where I will sleep on the 2nd floor. I meet Peter (13) and Ida (15) who are a little shy at first. Edith has a special french champagne ready to open so we enjoy it whilst chatting. The dinner Edith prepares is delicious - bratwurst (made by her father), German style fried potatoes and a delicious vegetable dish. Edith, Uwe and I stay up late talking and catching up on our news.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Le M Paris
When we arrived around 11 am and there were no rooms available. Although we were exhausted from our red-eye flight in from New York it was understandable and the front desk took our luggage and recommended some great places to eat while we waited.
Now being a travel agent I had emailed their reservations manager and they offered a free buffet breakfast (was a 20 EUR value) which when I mentioned was already known. To my added surprise they upgraded me to the best room category and gave my guest and I a welcome letter and each a free flute of champagne. We stayed there for 2 nights at $190 EUR/night (which was below average for most other reputable hotel chains).
The room was quaint but beautifully updated with a large, clean bathroom. I was surprised at how small the bathtub was but figured it was probably standard for Europe. Service and accommodations well exceeded my expectations!!
