Had a great night's sleep & was ready to head out on our last day in rainy Paris. Jeff was still babbling about going to a museum, but I just wasn't in the mood for a museum. I had already told him that I wanted to take him to the market where we shopped during class & to show him where the cooking school is…he was so busted, he hadn' …
Woke up early, people were a bit noisier this morning than any other day. I figured it was most of the tenants heading to work on a dreary Monday morning.
I finished packing, cleaning the apt., & was ready at noon when Magali arrived. She was amazed how clean I was leaving the apt. & said to return any time! Music to my ears! I …
An early start from Lucerne for a 700km coach trip to Paris. The mist had set in and you couldn't even see the other side of the lake where as yesterday it had been perfectly clear and you could see all of the lake and the surrounding mountains. There was nothing remarkable on the way between Lucerne and Paris. Paris is beautiful, unlike Rome which …
The palace and gardens of Versaille are renowned for their opulence and beauty. Our trip to them did not disappoint. The palace is huge. It was built by King Louis XIV and also used by Louis XV and Louis XVI before it was abandoned during the French revolution. It is now a museum and includes relics from the reigns of those kings as well as …

A very well decked out room and the hotel has good room service. The pillows were too thick and even after beating them down I could not get comfortable. I have woken with a sore neck on both morinings.

Historical Traveler Reviews Pullman Paris Montparnasse
A typical 4 star hotel without parisian character. Near the montparnasse train station and tower. The rooms are big enough for 4 persons and the service was ok. On the other hand, you have to take the metro to go to the city center. Overall a good hotel for 190euro with breakfast.
This hotel is your basic chain hotel. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms large. The area is safe and the street noise quiet. The staff was very friendly, typical of all Parisian attitudes -- nothing really warm and welcoming -- just there to do business with you. The metro is across the street, but does take a walk getting to -- as with most transportation systems in the US and around the world -- you do have to make an effort to function. We received a great rate on Priceline and received the hotel for $123 a night - which was a good price for a 4 star in Paris. Yes, it is a distance from any major sites and is considered more of a business property than a large tourist hotel, so do not expect any tourist attractions to be near the hotel because they are not. Also, a word to the wise --- do not travel by car into Paris if you can help it --- it took us 3 hours to get out of Paris via car due to the congestion and the unorganized streets. Rely on public transportation in Paris.
Ok hotel, I got a good price with Priceline. Would try somewhere else next time. Far out, even a long long walk to the metro line within the station. Nothing would entice me back and yet there was no fault with anything in particular. Concierge staff were not particularly pleasant yet did their job. No welcoming atmosphere. Nice piano playing in bar at night.
We spent a week at Le Meridien Montparnasse and were pleasantly surprised about how good the hotel wasw after having read some rather negative reviews. The hotel has a large, attractive lobby. The service was efficient, the concierge was helpful, the room was comfortable (but not large). One negative was that we got two twin beds, side by side.
This One's a Winner
We just returned from our stay at this hotel. We were very pleased with our non-smoking, queen room that was comfortable, super-quiet, and uncrowded, although not spacious by American standards. The bathroom was very large and modern with a bidet. There was even an ice machine on the floor. The staff, both desk and housekeeping, were friendly and efficient. The lobby was filled with business people and airline crews, as well as tourists. The Air France bus stops across the street, along the side of the train station - most convenient. We certainly recommend this hotel. Look for last minute Le Meridien Moments weekend rates.
I base alot of my expectations on how much I paid for the room. If its very cheap, then I expect less. If its free, then I don't necessarily care a whole lot. I paid a good bit for this room. The location was nice. Montparnasse is near alot of shopping and restaurants and metro and one gets to see and venture out into another part of Paris thats happening that otherwise one may not see. The concierge was helpful but a bit snooty. Checkin was quick and got the room as an early check-in.
The room was nice, yet small as was the bathroom.I would stay there again, but probably wouldn't want to pay what I did.
Ugly and Overpriced
Small pokey rooms with a pretty low standard of furnishings. I've stayed in Meridiens before and this was more like a Holiday Inn (Express).Room service and mini bar astonishingly expensive, (much like a lot of Paris).On the plus side it is in a good location and the staff were helpful.
This hotel was absolutely fantasic and I could not have asked for any place better to stay!! It made my trip to Paris that bit more special.
Poor quality and expensive
We used Expedia to book this hotel and - to our anger and surprise - found that breakfast was NOT included! Also, despite having booked a non-smoking room, we found that the room and corridor reeked of cigarette smoke. One afternoon we came back to our room only to find that it hadn't been made up! Two phone calls to the housekeeper were necessary to ensure that a maid would come up to make our beds!!
Overall, a hugely overrated and unjustifiably expensive dump!
