... music from bands scattered along the banks was playing, people walking and biking and even with some dancing the Tango. We arrived back under the Eiffel tower as it burst into light – a vibrant, exciting atmosphere!! Now it is off in the bus to the Moulin Rouge where once again the crowds were massive. The iconic red windmill turning above famous for the cancan in the cabaret below, the decor and interior is authentic. I thought it might have been ...
Just for some extra excitement whilst holidaying in Paris, we were sitting at our window last night, overlooking the Seine River watching the excursion boats pass by... When one of these boats pulls over to the banks of the river... Next thing there are sirens coming from every direction.... Three fire engines, four paramedic vans towing dingy's, three police boats and a huge police barge turns up.... We are watching from our window wondering what the hell is going on ...
... at rush hour) and headed for Sacre Coeur. 200 stairs later, another breathtaking view, and the first one if familiarity to me. I had been to Sacre Coeur before during my study abroad trip the summer before my Sophomore year. It brought back great memories of drinking wine under the Eiffel Tower and eating Crepes with some great friends I had made that summer, and that's when the craving began- I had to have a crepe! Last time Chris was in Paris (a mere 9 months ago) they found ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Littre Paris
Overall, had a very good experience at the Littre. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were clean and quite comfortable. One night our AC stopped, but we told the front desk and it was working the next day.
Also good location - with the option of walking (30 minutes) to most major attractions, or using the Montparnasse subway station which is only 1 block away.
I recommend the Hotel Littre, and would definately return.
Highly recommend this hotel
My family stayed at this hotel in last week of July, my wife and my two teenage sons. The hotel staff are very accomodating. Breakfasts are good and the rooms are very clean and spacious.
The location is difficult to beat with good communication links to the centre of Paris via bus or Metro.
Do go to the top of the Monparnasse Tower at night, which gives the best view of Paris.
Excellent restaurants in the area especially for fish. Try La Criee on Monparnasse boulevard, a very good fish restaurant.
Not Disappointed At All
Not disappointed at all after choosing Hotel Littre based on recommendations here. The staff is exceptional ... always friendly, always patient and helpful. We asked to use a corkscrew for a bottle we had bought down the street, they took the bottle and next thing we knew, they had brought the open bottle to our room in an ice bucket with ice, wine glasses and a small dish of potato chips. Our room, complete with slippers and robes, was ready for us even when we arrived before nine a.m.
on Saturday morning, May 22, 2004 ... our 34th anniversary. Room and bath were very nice. Would definitely love to return to Hotel Littre.
A delightful surprise
We were a bit apprehensive about Hotel Littre - having booked sight-unseen. But what a lovely cozy hotel! Good location and you can catch the Metro just right at the corner. Breakfasts are grand and I would return in a minute!
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Littr? Feb. 13-19, 2004. We were very satisfied. We arrived at 10:00 in the morning; they didn't have our standard room ready, but we opted to pay a little extra and upgrade to a deluxe room (Room 411). We were really glad we did. The room was large, even by American standards, with a king-size bed (actually two singles pushed together, but it worked just fine), a sitting area with couch, chair, coffee table, and TV, and a fully equipped, perfectly satisfactory bathroom. (There was a tub with a shower curtain that drew across the whole length, and the hand-held shower was wall-mounted. The sink area was marble, with ample counter space. Bathrobes hung on the back of the door.) There was no dresser, but there was a large hanging closet with several shelves for laying clothes in. The closet also had an in-room safe.We thought the room got rather warm and stuffy during the day, so we enjoyed throwing the large windows open when we got home from the day's sightseeing. Unfortunately these windows only looked out on a plain inner courtyard and other wings of the hotel--no view to speak of, but this did help keep the noise down. (Didn't have any problems AT ALL with noise.)The staff was very helpful, even to suggesting a last-minute restaurant (and securing a reservation) on Valentine's Day when our original plan fell through. We enjoyed the restaurant very much!If you want or need to use the internet during your stay, they have a public use computer (very old and slow, but functional). You pay 7 Euros and have access to the computer for your entire stay. This small fee was well worth it to us when we needed to look something up urgently. It is optional, of course.The hotel breakfast is huge, with breads, cheeses, cold cuts, jams, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage and more. Breakfast was included with the package we had booked; I do not know how much it would be if purchased separately. If we hadn't already paid for it, I may have opted to breakfast elsewhere a few other mornings, just for variety. (Their spread was always the same.)The location is great--two convenient metro stops (Montparnasse and St-Placide) are just a couple minutes away, there's a corner grocery down the street, and you're right in the heart of the left bank with shopping, restaurants, and places to see.All in all, the hotel was just what we were looking for and hoping for--nice, clean, friendly, with the basic amenities, but still affordable and with loads of Parisian charm! I heartily recommend it.
Paris was wonderful and Hotel Littre made our stay extraordinary! Our deluxe room was spacious, clean, had a sitting area, small balcony, and grand french doors. The only minor problem was the bathroom in which you take a shower- because the glass pane is so small, the whole bathroom gets wet- but the tub is great for soaking in after walking around Paris all day! The subway (Metro) was nearby and it's quite fast and easy taking the train everywhere - as the cab rides can cost you quite a bit! Our hotel was very comfortable, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful! We especially want to commend Sabrina at the front desk who went out of her way to assist us in anything from arranging boat cruises, to which nightclubs to go to (Le Duplex and L'Etoile), and to recommending an amazing french restaurant- C'est le mon plaisir- definetly worth checking out! Sabrina is definetly one of the reasons we will go back and stay at Hotel Littre!
Paris was fabulous. The Hotel Littre was wonderful. It is in a great location near the Montparnasse Metro stop and train station. The tour I went on was arranged by Art du Voyage which is here in L.A. They really did a nice job and pretty much everything was fabulous. They arranged for great guides of the Louvre, Picasso Museum, d'Orsay, and Versailles. The Parisians were lovely and welcoming. The food was great, especially the macaroons at Cafe Ladure (spelling?). These are not cocunut ones, but ones made of almonds and then with flavors added. My favorites were the pistachio ones. There are 2 or 3 locations, but the one I went to was about a mile from the hotel (20 minutes if you walk briskly, from the hotel) and close to St. Germain du Pres. I can't wait to go back, but I will go when it is not so cold! The only thing I could not recommend was the tour of the sewers, it was just not that great, there is no guide, which I think is what makes a similar tour in Seattle so great.
One of the best
We've just returned from a super four nights in Paris. Stayed at the Hotel Littre, Montparnasse. This is a little gem. Great comfort but above all we were impressed with the staff who could not do more to be helpful. They were without exception friendly, professional and very ayttentive. We will certainly return
A Wonderful Surprise
My husband and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Littre on our honeymoon in 1999. The hotel was under renovations at the time, and we were dissapointed to learn that we had been bumped from our original booking of a superior suite - - but not for long. We were upgraded to an "apartment," a spacious suite including a king sized bed, a gorgeous bathroom and a little sitting room where we could eat our breakfast if we didn't feel like going downstairs. The hotel was comfortable, the staff was attentive and friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. We would stay there again!
We were originally booked at Hotel St. Germain, apparently they overbooked and bumped us to Hotel Littre.... I have to say that was the best thing that ever happened to us. When we arrived at Hotel St. Germain, it was an eye sore. The hotel was located on the very busy street of St. Germain. It was an old hotel, it had an uninviting reception area, it was cramped with limited walking space, a complete chaos.
