Novotel Paris Gare Montparnasse
Travel Blogs from Paris
Brief stopover in Paris - overnight prior to train journey to Bordeaux. We stayed at Montparnasse because the train south was leaving from the Gare Montparnasse.
Had a little tourist time - visited the Montparnasse cemetery (briefly)
and took in the usual Paris sights from the not-so-usual perspective of the Tour de Montparnasse.
... this. It was something I had always wanted to see, so I didn’t want to just move on without giving some consideration as to whether I’d regret it if I didn’t see it while I had the opportunity.
In the end, I decided against it, my feet and back not generally being up to standing for long periods of time. I was seated for about 10 minutes and the queue didn’t move in that time. People were only being let in a few at a time. So I decided ...
... months are holiday Peak times. We a finally arrived at the "Louve" and continued walking all the way to our accommodation, bypassing to have dinner at Chez Cladines' Cafe and Bar. Peter and I both selected duck, Peter's was with a blue cheese sauce and mine was roasted. Both served with chat potatoes and we enjoyed washing it down with a couple of glasses of Vin Rouge. We had walked so much today that when we returned from the Restaurant we were so exhausted that we went straight to ...
... s etc that cruise this busy street.
Kaye has found a nice Bagel shop, & we nibble of this tasty treat as we walk back to the junction of av.de Marigny & Champs Élysees to the underground Metro, board the No.13 train to St.Lazare, change trains again to get the No.3 train to Pont de Levallois, which is where we are staying.
We still have 4 more train tickets, so tomorrow we will catch 2 trains again to get to the Luxembourg Palace & Gardens, after ...
... 2. Not one for missing an opportunity to find out what you get for your €2, I paid my money and entered what can only be described as a shrine to toilets. I could buy an assortment of toilet paper, lids, dunny brushes etc in all sorts of colours. Not to be distracted I headed into my cubicle, once I was called, and discovered the pinkest, cleanist toilet I have ever seen. €2 well spent I say!! Dutifully relieved we then headed off to the famous ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Paris Gare Montparnasse
Muy bien situado a 150 metros de la Gare Montparnasse, pero recomiendo los desplazamientos en Metro, a unos 400 m del Hotel se encuentra la estación PASTEUR, por donde pasan dos lineas, la 6 y la 12 ,una de norte a sur y otra de este a oeste, por lo que sólo con un transbordo iran a cualquier sitio de París.
El hotel es nuevo, con personal muy amable, desayuno superior a la media, buffet libre, bastante bien surtido.
Las habitaciones muy amplias con cuarto de baño separado del water, camas grandes con edredon.
Ha sido mi segundo viaje a París y ha superado mis expectativas, el precio en tarifa de fin de semana era de 98 euros, y lo contraté a través de la pagina web del hotel.
A clean and new *** is better than an old **** hotel ....
I was impressed about the quality of this new Novotel:
Simply nothing to complain about: large and cleans rooms, clear bathrooms with bath and shower, nice and practical restaurant,
above average bedding,
Could all the Novotels look like this one !
I stayed at this hotel for two nights with my seven year old. After walking several blocks with a jacket, suit jacket, two carry-on's and my son in tow, I was a sweaty mess. The clerk went to the office behind the counter to return with a box of tissues. My French is mediocre, but I truly believe the staff appreciated my attempt, and they treaty me with great courtesy. The room itself was light and airy, and was very comfortable. The mattress was firm, the comforter was wonderfully enveloping. I appreciated the coffee and tea set-up. The bathroom was modern, with the toilet being in a different area than the sink, shower and bathtub. The fridge with a bottle of water replaced daily was a nice touch. The only minor complaint is that there was only one English speaking channel, and that was the BBC headline news. Of course I was in France, so I guess the one channel was better than nothing. Should I return to Paris again, I would go out of my way to stay here again.
He estado en este hotel del 12 al 16 de Octubre .
We stayed at the Novotel Gare Montparnasse for five nights in October and found it to be an enjoyable experience. We booked through the Novotel's website, choosing the Early Bird Option, 98 euros a night.
Very modern hotel, good location
Very modern hotel close from Gare de Montparnasse. Kind of a "designer" hotel, stylish reception, lounge and bar. Very modern rooms and bathrooms. The hotel opened in June 06. Lots of good restaurants in the area.
But: shame shame for the lousy breakfast. The buffet was running out of everything... very, very poor. Definitely not worth the 14 Euros they charged for it. Since breakfast is not included in the room rate, I would recommend to go out for breakfast to one of the cafés near the railway station.
We stayed at this hotel for two nights on a brief trip to Paris. We had originally booked another hotel, but we hated it and so found this one, which wasn't far from the first.
This hotel is conveniently located next to the metro station which makes it very easy to get to the center of the city and to major attaractions. Around the hotel there are many restaurants, bars, and cafes, and there is also Galerie Lafayette (shopping center) just a walking distance away.
Novetel hoitel Montparnasse poor service
We stayed at trhis hotel for 4 noghts later Msay and early June 2005.
The hotel is very new. The rooms are ice bright and clean.
However the staff were the worse I have ever encountered. They were rude. lazy and poorly trained.
One evening a group of people arrived at the bar. The two bartenders left the bar for 20 minutes and had to be brought back by magement.
the eggs at the buffet breakfast were always cold and the bacon partially cooked.
the hotel is ideally situated near the Mont[arnsse subway and railway.
there are plenty of resdtaurants nearby. A taxi costs 20 E to go downrown.
it has to iron out alot of problems.
