... what do you do when sitting in an airport with time to spare? More importantly, what do you do when sitting in an airport with time to spare AND YOU ARE WITH JACKS? You guessed it. Well, most of you may not have guessed but Sandra certainly did, I bet. You have a drink - and not coffee! And I happened to have had one rather large but very nice white (Australian) wine while Jacks had one rather large beer. So it was a very happy pair who boarded the flight... If any of ...
... a little more (dare I say it). There is so much history there I was a bit maxed out, or perhaps the size and amount of eras was a bit much for me to cope with. Chloe loved it there and with her audio guide she could have stayed there happily for days!! I did love the actual building, ceilings and Napoleon's rooms. The chandeliers, the celings, the baby's crib and you could just go on and on... We left through the front door this time and worked/waled our way on the ...
... for ever in Paris. This weekend is the Sale-of-all-Sales in Paris and it is very hard not to enter each and every store. But guess what...bought a great pair of flat, yes, you read it correctly, F.L.A.T. suede, orange loafers that feel like slippers. After some quite time in the apartment headed out for dinner and had an okay meal for less than an okay price. Tomorrow is Allan's birthday and am really looking forward to lunch at Bistro ...
... After spending an entire day wandering the palace and grounds I got back to the hostel at 9pm exhausted but really happy and slept like a log. The next day basically consisted of me trying to get to visit as many museums as humanly possible during the remaining two days of the validity of my pass. So I went to the archaeological crypts under Notre-Dame, then up the Towers of Notre-Dame for an incredible view of Paris punctuated by gargoyles ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Innova Paris
These people were wonderful!
We went last summer and the 3rd member of our group (the only one who spoke any french) cancelled! They were very willing to change our reservation from 3 to 2 with the option of upgrading to a room with a view (to die for!!!!) and breakfast with no cost difference - they actually ended up losing about 5euros.
The room was small but very clean and nice. After no elevator and a 7th floor room in London we loved the lift!
The view of the E. Tower from our room was unbelievable.
They were friendly (not overly, but adequately) and helpful.
We are going back in 2007 and I have already requested the same room!
Great value, Handy location
Very pleasant desk staff, excellent English spoken. Breakfast (7 euro extra) is very good. For location (1 min from Pasteur Metro) and convenience (Gare Montparnasse 5 min walk), this simple, basic, clean Paris hotel is great value for money at around 60 euro per room. Recommended.
Just returned from this hotel and was very surprised at how great it was for its star rating. Our room was on the top floor, a triple, with lovely decor and bathroom which had a bath and shower. We found our room to be very spacious - it had a lovely sloping ceiling. Either the hotel was not busy, or the rooms were sound-proofed because we did not hear any noise from the other rooms at all.
Stayed there with family for five nights in the beginning of July 2004. One of the few Parisian Hotels, which had a vacant quadruple room at decent price at this time of the year. Inqueries and reservation went smoothly and promptly with e-mail.
Lovely hotel but thier attitude stank!
i styed there the last week in june. the rooms are beautiful and nice breakfast (though not included) the quiet area was a welcome change to our previous hotel in montmartre.
very good air conditioning and clean rooms. the reason i didnt like it there was that the receptionist was an arrogant p***k and brought me to tears on two occasions and called my room when i wouldnt let the housekeeper clean until i left (i have serious problems with my bones so i find it hard to get up in the morning so it takes me a few hours to get ready to leave.) he made it very clear that i was to leave the room immediately.
i suggest you learn a few french phrases like "you have a bad attitude" and "leave me the hell alone" if you want to stay here, if not try the hotel next door.
Best Hotel in Paris
The Hotel Innova was fabulous. My girlfriend and I stayed down there for 10 days. The room was very nice and had a pretty descent view. Each morning the owner served us a beautiful breakfast. Also, the rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. The concierge is very knowledgeable and helped is out with directions, places to eat. and places to see. The metro is located steps awy from the hotel. Overall, I would give this hotel 5 stars for the price.
The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. On the downside, the rooms are small which is typical of Parisian hotels in the price range.
The hotel is located in the pleasant Montparnasse district, slightly outside the historical centre. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the vicinity and metro is only 50 yards away so going anywhere is convenient. Staying in Montparnasse gives one an idea of how real Parisians live. Perfect for those looking for a good value hotel and wanting to avoid the tourist hordes.
Decent and clean
I stayed here in April '03 as part of a vacation package. I was able to check in as soon as I arrived which was about 11am considering most hotels make you wait until check-in. Its a small hotel with friendly staff-except cleaning staff didn't speak english. I had a double room for me and my 7 year old-it was kind of small but it had a small balcony. In Paris I found out it may be common practice to leave your keycard everytime you go out-this maybe to ensure your room is cleaned.
The dining area is small, it maybe seats 20 people at a time and the breakfast usually consists of croissant,muffin,juice,hot chocalate,yogurt. Its also located very close to the metro. Overall I would say its a average hotel.
