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 !
Great Weekend in Paris
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.
Superior a las tres estrellas
He estado en este hotel del 12 al 16 de Octubre .
Mi estancia ha sido muy positiva , la habitación es amplia con mucha luz y un estilo funcional y muy moderno , el cuarto de baño consta de ducha con mampara ,un lavabo muy original y una bañera, el inodoro esta en otra estancia , la cama es amplia y cómoda en vez de manta tiene nórdico , la televisión es de plasma con conexión a internet . Tambien tiene nevera y caja fuerte sin cargo , asi mismo tiene servicio de infusiones y café tambien gratuito.
Todo esta muy nuevo ( inaguró en junio de este año ) y muy límpio
El desayuno es sencillo pero esta bien corresponde a un hotel de su categoria .
La situación es en el distrito 15 al lado de la torre de montparnasse , tiene cerca dos estaciones de metro la de Pasteur a 7 minutos y la de Montparnasse Bienvenue a 10
Se puede coger con oferta si se reserva con bastante antelación
a nosotros nos salio en 98 € la habitación con desayuno incluido , hicimos la reserva con dos meses de antelación la verdad es que fue una ganga.
A Busy Five Nights.
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.
The hotel is very new, modern and bright. The room is quite large, very clean, separate toilet , and bathroom with a large shower,sink, and separate bath. The room also included a safe which can accomodate a lap top, a fridge which receives a bottle of water every day. A kettle is also provided with tea & coffee.
A modern flat LCD TV provides TV, pay per view movies and internet access (at a charge). The only English speaking channel we found was BBC World.
The bed size was large and very comfortable, and the room also had two fold down sofa beds.
The room was made up daily, and clean sheets and towels were provided.
Breakfast was included in the rate we had got, which we enjoyed greatly. It consisted of a hot and cold buffet. The only downside, the breakfast staff seemed quite busy and short staffed, and it looked quite hetic, trying to seat guests at tables, cleaning tables and replenishing the breakfast buffet.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English.
The hotel is beside Gare Montparnesse train station, Pasteur metro station is about a five minute walk or a 10 minute walk to Montparnasse Bienvenue metro station through the train station. Pasteur has a direct route to Bir-Hakeim, five stops for the Eiffel Tower and Charles De Gaulle Etoile, 10 stops for the Arc De Triomphe.
Travelling to and from Charles De Gaulle airport, we found travelling to Denfert Rochereau and Pasteur the best as there was less walking and less steps.
Overall, our stay was very enjoyable and would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
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.
It has air conditioning.........
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.
We had our car with us as we were en route from the Loire Valley and stopped in Paris on our way home. This hotel has a great underground car park, with lifts straight up to the rooms - most convenient. It is not too far into Paris, which we were concerned about as we didn't fancy battling with all the Parisians in their cars. However, it is also close enough to a metro station for tourism without it taking too long to get anywhere.
This is a new hotel, so it has air conditioning, which was a major factor in our choosing to stay there. Paris was very very hot while we were there and to come back to an air conditioned room with a fridge was absolute bliss! I was 6 months pregnant and so my priorities were quite specific.
We didn't really have much contact with the staff, only the reception staff who put us in a very large room on the top floor with a balcony. As I have said I was 6 months pregnant so I think they were being extra nice to me. We didn't bother with breakfast as we were so keen to get out into Paris and see as much as we could in the short time we were there.
The hotel is very new as I have said, and it is pretty clinical and a little office block like. So if you are looking for character and charm this is not the place for you. It is clean, tidy, practical and air conditioned - as a woman in the 6th month of pregnancy that was all I wanted in a hotel!
Expected a little better
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.
The rooms are spacious, but can use some improvement. the bed sheets are not very clean and they don't give you enough sheets, so every night I had to ask the front dest for few clean sheets. Also, they do not provide you with a sheet under the comforter and remember comforters at hotels are rarely washed, so make sure you ask for an additional bed sheet.
The breakfast is bad. I stayed at other Novotels in Paris and their breakfast is much better. The breakfast at the Novotel Montparnasse lacks cheese, bread, and staff.
There is a distinct smell as soon as you walk into the hotel, and as soon as you step out of your room into the hallway. It is some kind of deodorizer, so its purpose is to make the hotel smell nicer, but it made me nauseous and dizzy.
The saff is very helpful and can speak English. Howerver, two nights in a row they failed to give me my wake up call wich was very disappointing.
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.

Jacinta ecstatic that breakfast buffet has Nutella for her crepes. We're off touring around Paris with our group today. There are heaps of teenage girls so Jacinta has fit right in. We had snails for lunch - very nice. Another long day. Had a meeting about our 3 day pilgrimage and I'm very worried :-/ Time to now pack for it.
Beautiful weather in Lourdes today and we're leaving :-( I could never come here in the winter. If I can't handle their spring then there's no way I'd be able to do winter. We're driving back to Toulouse for the airport. It's such pretty countryside - all green with cottage filled villages along the way. There's also a castle perched up on a hill. …
... got me exactly what I deserve, I guess. I ended up waiting in the entry line behind what must have seriously been over a thousand people. So the fact that I was the first there meant nothing. From 8:15am-10:30am I waited in that line.Versailles is a lot like a amusement park. You basically pay somebody a lot of money so that you can wait in line with people who left their manners at home. Once you get inside, you are herded in a straight line ...

When I crossed this street again later in the day, I saw vendors put stalls with handmade crafts for sale, I almost bought African beaded necklaces, there were many nicely designed, saw cute several handmade scarfs and sweaters.
At the bottom of the street I turned to rue Montmartre, which is the oldest section of the street from 13th century, then found myself on rue ...

People come from all over to put a lock on the bridge and throw the key over into the river thus sealing their love forever;) It was seriously covered with locks! We decided to go to Sacre-Coeur basilica since Taylor hadn't been and we had time. We grabbed a yummy snack on the way. Mine was a giant chocolate meringue and his was a delicious ...
