Pullman Paris Montparnasse
Travel Blogs from Paris
Getting here was the longest trip of my life. By the time we got to our hotel we were all so crabby and tired. It felt so good to crawl into bed that night! In the morning we ordered some ridiculously expensive room service while Terry and Taylor slept. After breakfast we hit the subway and thanks to Taylor made it to the Louvre. What an …
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.
Great Location and Close to the Metro Line: Average for a 4 Star
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.
Comfortable Hotel Well Worth What We Paid
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.
when we asked for a queen size bed, they said we would have to pay an additional $50 per night. We did not use the bar or restaurants as they seemed overpriced to us. there were many cafes, brasseries and restaurants within walking distance. We used the metro daily to visit the various sights. then we went out, mostly in monparnasse in the evening. There was a great outdoor market area a few blocks away with tons of stalls, selling cheese, bread, fruits, pastries, meats,etc. one day. The next day the same location was an art market. We shopped for pastries, bread, drinks, etc. at the fantastic Inno supermarket a few blocks away. The Gaite mall was right next door.
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.
The staff were very helpful and my room was brilliant. Upon arrival, I was offered a choice of two bedrooms to stay in by the Manager in person! The bar was brilliant and the service was top quality. I have nothing bad to report about the Meridien and will always choose to stay there when going to Paris in future. The food and restaurants were top notch and I would recommend eating there for anyone. The concierge service was first class and I was not kept waiting for anything I asked for. The staff were so helpful that they gave us a map and advised us of good local places to visit. I cannot rate this hotel highly enough for anyone to stay in, I am just surprised that this hotel is not a 5 star! Well worth the money that I paid for!!!
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!
We stayed here over New Year, and it was fantastic. The rooms are clean and spaceous. The hotel is the tallest hotel in Paris, so the views are superb, since most of the building in Paris are only 6 floors max!
(take some binoculars - its well worth it!!) We had a spot of bother whilst out one day, my dad had is money stolen from his pocket on the metro - the staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful, advising him what to do and where to go to report it. Overall the best New Year's break I've ever had, and would not hesitate to go back again year after year. Montparnasse is a good area - with plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel - plus the Metro station is only a short walk away too. Just beware the drinks in the lobby/piano bar are a tad expensive!!
