... Louise are on their way to CDG and a flight to Hong Kong. I hope they have knocked off all that wine they had left!!
Sue and I still have 2x Vin Rouge, 1x Vin Blanc and 1x Champagne - with 2 days to go. I reckon we will just finish the job nicely.
It is about time I passed comment on our hotel......"Hotel Bedford" in Rue de L'Arcade, Madeleine. We walked past this hotel a couple of years ago when we ...
... upon arriving at the courtyard. The museum is MASSIVE. We got to see two special exhibits, one on Egypt (to Evan's delight) and one on Giotto. We discovered those were in the part of the museum where no one goes to - everyone is on the wing where the Mona Lisa is. The crowd there is a bit intense (almost a smack down between an African-American from the states and a Muslim woman with good enough English to make her displeasure known)! There are so many famous works ...
... your life. Gilding, paintings, massive columns. Over his tomb is a massive dome inspired, apparently, by St Peter's in Rome. When you walk in the dome towers above you, but Napoleon's actual tomb is below in a large circular pit, so that looking down you have to bow your head. The massive sarcophagus appears to be of red marble and is surrounded by twelve huge carved angels which look Pre-Raphaelite in style. There is also a massive altar with huge spiral ...
... the round a bout below. Chevy Chase eat your heart out. In the afternoon we walked over to right bank via Notre Dame. Took in the Hotel de Ville (and its outdoor ice skating rink) and the Pompidou Centre. Most importantly, we collected Nina. The kids were so excited to see her and have been talking a dime a dozen for about 2 hours. I would be surprised if Nina could understand a word with them both talking at ...

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.
