What can one say about Paris that has not already been said? Up early for anearly look from Tour Montparnasse while someone else looked at shops. We then decided to do a backstreets look at Montparnasse. Jardin De Atlantique, narrow streets with shps and markets, definitley not tourist central. Lunch had us near the for some bread, cheese, …
Walked straight out of CDG onto an Air France bus to Gare Montparnasse. A quick couple of blocks to our hotel and we are settled in Paris by about 2:30 pm. A quick shower then out for a wander. Withn two blocks we find ourselves in the Jardin de Luxembourg. The Parisians know how to care for their parks, and how to use them. This is a very stunning …
One of the Rockwell cadre very kindly agreed to keep our extra luggage and to take us to the train station the next morning. We were so excited! Our train was to leave at 9:22 and we were there plenty early. We purchased first-class tickets and sat in very comfortable and roomy seats, each with tray table and lots of overhead storage. It was one of …
I slept very poorly Sunday night and so insisted on a substantial breakfast Monday morning. This turned out to be a small quiche Lorraine and flat can of Coke Zero at a cafe near the hotel. Doug had his usual favorite, pain chocolat (a puff pastry filled with dark chocolate), with orange juice. We bought new passes for the Metro and set off to see …

Very nice hotel good value
excellent brunch and friendly staff
Great mattress, especially for Paris
The Lenox Montparnasse is tucked into an area of Paris we were not that familiar with but loved for it's color and liveliness. (Others might think the area a bit seedy but we found it to be safe and the hotel is NOT seedy.) The public areas of the hotel are exquisite and the room we had overlooking the patio of the adjacent hotel was a delight. Small, like most Paris hotel rooms, the layout allowed for access to suitcases so we were not obliged to either unpack or climb over our cases. The bedding was good quality 400 + thread count egyptian cotton and the mattress was excellent. Great value for the money. We will make this our headquarters for Paris visits for some time to come.
This is a good hotel in a great area of Paris, right near Jardin de Luxembourg and within walking distance of St. Germain. We flew into CDG and took the Air France bus to the Montparnasse station and walked to the hotel from there.
Great value for money
stayed there on several occasions. always great. recommend rooms with view on the patio (rather than on the street which can be noisy).
friendly staff, clean and large rooms, refurbished, in a convenient place in Paris.
Overall great value for money, sure.
We stayed at the Lenox in June, 2005. We were worried about a hotel in Paris with good air conditioning in the summer, but were not disappointed. Our room was one of the cheaper rooms, and although it was small and close to the elevator, it was clean, quiet and the air conditioner was fantastic. The bathroom was sparkling and comfortable, with large plush towels and great water pressure from the shower. Our beautiful french windows opened up to the street. The breakfast was very complete - considering that breakfast at the cafes were 10EUR pp (with only toast, coffee and juice), the hotel breakfast for 13EUR was a good value. Close to convenient super market, Metro stops and great classic Parisian cafes on Blvd Montparnasse made this hotel a perfect hotel for a Paris get-away!
We stayed at Hotel Lenox for 7 nights during our honeymoon in May 2005, and we had a nice stay without major complaints. The highlights and cautions were as follows:
We stayed at the Lenox Montparnasse for four nights at the end of March. Our group had 3 standard rooms with a bath (instead of just a shower). We paid 115 euros/night.
Very pleasant stay
We stayed in the Hotel Lenox Montparnasse for 3 nights at the end of December 2004. We were very impressed by the clean rooms, sparkling bathrooms, efficient service, and friendly attitude of the staff. We had a quiet room facing the courtyard. We did not have breakfast at the hotel, so I can't comment on the quality. There is two excellent bakeries close to the hotel. Public transport is also excellent with two metro stations within four minutes walk of the hotel. All in all a very pleasant stay, and I can highly recommend this 3 star hotel to other travellers.
