      Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Paris Vaugirard Montparnasse

      Great hotel off the beaten path

      from

      Stayed at this Novotel in February for the antique car show at the nearby expo center. After staying in Novotel's for many years, you come to know that you will always find a clean modern no frills hotel. This Novotel is no exception. As usual it was clean and with the standard Novotel room layout. The breakfast was awesome like always. Staff at this Novotel are particularly good. One clerk even printed us a map with directions to a restaurant we wanted to vist all the way by Les Halles.

      I also really enjoyed being away from all the tourists at the end of the night. So easy to hop on the metro right outside the hotel to get to the major sights of Paris. You are there in ten minutes. Great to be able to wind down in the neighborhood each night which has its fair share of restaurants and bars. All in all a perfect location for those who have been to Paris many times.

      3 Days at New Year

      from

      Stayed 3 nights in Novotel Vaugirard 29th - 31st December 2004

      Clean convenient (metro links everything in paris) Didn't eat there apart from basic breakfast. It was presented to us as a 3 star superior -thats about fair - although the superior is probably pushing it a bit

      Very helpful and polite staff

      Fantastic breakfast buffet, decent service, weak A/C

      from

      The hotel is in a fairly residential area of the left bank. Close to a couple of metro stations, plenty of small shops and the Pasteur Institute. Unremarkable *except* for the generous breakfast buffet/room service.

      The rooms were average but nice enough for the price, the A/C isn't quite up to what we're used to in the US so you can't quite crank it up too much. The bathroom amenities are the perfectly adequate standard Novotel ones (though that 'soap chip' is pretty tiny :). Also had a minibar which was useful for stuffing beverages and food bought from the small shops along the street. The hotel's porn channel sometimes doesn't scramble itself so careful if the kiddies have the remote!

      The lobby is large enough and has some comfy chairs for meeting people downstairs, a small lounge and then an outside dinning area in the back. Breakfast is served on the second (US designation) floor and was included in our room rate. Really, it was *fantastic* for a hotel buffet in this price range. Even better if we had known it, we could get breakfast delivered to the room without charge also (and they *really* piled the baskets of baked goods and other goodies high).

      The staff was pleasant and spoke english well enough. They let us check-in early without charge, fixed a problem with our in-room safe quickly, and when our A/C system started to leak from the ceiling, moved us right away AND to an upgraded room for no charge.

      It is a bit out of the way. If it's your first visit to Paris it may be too out of the way. Otherwise it does give you a chance to see how 'real' Parisians live.

      Very pleasant 5 nights in January

      from

      Would stay here again. Assessible to Metro one half block away. Room and beds were comfortable, but would prefer a lounge type chair instead of only 1 straight back - or at least 2 chairs. Tissue holder in bath needed repair. Maid came in unannounced even though the "Do No Disturb" sign was out, so be sure that the security lock is on. This concerned me because I had read that the housekeeping staff of this chain had gone on strike several years ago because of low wages and they are paid by the number of rooms cleaned in one hour. The restaurant staff and food were great. For ice in the room, we took a ziplock bag to the bar to be filled. There is an excellent seafood restaurant 1 blk away across a park.

      Fine Hotel Property

      from

      We stayed at the Novotel for 4 nights this month (January 04). It is a nice hotel for the price and the residential area offers some great bakeries, shops and convenient metro stops. Staff was pleasant and courteous with varying degrees of English skills. Our room was on the fifth floor and we had a great view of the Eiffel Tour and little traffic noise. The rooms could use a little face lift (curtains had small rips, paper dispenser in bathroom torn off the wall). Based on prices of othe hotels more centrally located in Paris, it is a nice hotel for the price and I would stay there again.

      Wonderful Hotel

      from

      It's great for family. The room can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children with full breakfast. Transport is easy with Underground nearby.

      Surrounding is quiet and clean. Strongly recommend for families.

      One to miss!

      from

      Sultry staff, poor standard of food, awful smell of cooking on the 4th floor, one pillow per bed (when I asked the management (?) for an extra pillow, I was informed that the hotel only had one pillow for each bed.

      Incredible!). The only redemming feature of the hotel is..............?

      Alisia, who served at the bar, was an exception to the abysmally poor service offered by the rest of the staff and management. One to avoid.

      Perfect non-touristy location!

      from

      My daughter and I stayed at this Novotel mid-October 2002 and were very pleased. It was her second stay and my first. This hotel in the 15th Ar. provided a very nice room, excellent service and a terrific location: a police station is across one street, a bank across the other, a Metro stop about half a block away and a department/grocery store just a little further down. Our favorite "souvenirs" turned out to be umberellas we bought from a very nice lady whose umberella shop was right across the street from the hotel. It's not a tourist neighborhood -- people live all around and you are in their neighborhood. There is also a machine in the lobby that connects to the Internet (for a charge). We look forward to coming back to Paris and would definitely stay again at the Novotel.

      Excellent family hotel.

      from

      Excellent family hotel. Our family room slept 4 and was very clean with cable TV and fridge. Buffet breakfast made a great start to the day. The hotel is a little out of the centre, but we got the Metro into the centre every day. A book of 10 Metro tickets (a CARNET) is available, one for adults and one for children. Excellent hotel - would recommend.

      Great Location, Great Family Hotel

      from

      We stayed at Novotel Paris Vaugirard over the Easter weekend. We were greeted by polite, English-speaking staff and promptly checked in to a clean room with a nice view. The hotel is located on a central busy street with a metro nearby (5 minutes in either direction) linking you to Notre Dame. Take the Convention metro entrance (2 stops down) as it's located on a great street full of eateries and shops. Sunday, there is a terrific street market there selling everything from food to flowers to clothes. From the hotel, you can easily walk to the Eiffel Tower (viewed from the hotel's 7th floor terrace) in 20 minutes. By the way, there's a post office located a few minutes up the street which is nice for sending home post cards. The restaurant itself has a kiddie area in the front lobby with a play station to keep older ones busy and a lego table for the younger ones. There is also an internet terminal there. Breakfast is included in the price and is a hearty buffet (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage along with the traditional continental breads, cheeses and fruits). In the afternoon or evening, try the bar's cafe au lait (coffee with hot milk) as it was truly delicious topped with whipped cream and served with delicious chocolates. This Novotel hotel was an economic choice and well worth the visit.

      ... to get our own selfies with the famous painting. Not as awe inspiring for me as the turner's from 3 days before.

      Late that night L and I venture to the Pompidou Center for ' the view of Paris' . Well worth the 3€ each. we could see the city laid out before us. And the 6 store escalator ride was a great deal less nerve racking than the 100+ story view from Rockefeller center.

      ... it was very convenient. While at Starbuck's, I was able to Skype call my Grandma and show her the view around us. It was such a neat experience to be able to include her, and my Grandpa later on in the day, in my travels. Thanksgiving would not have been the same without them, I was grateful to technology this Thanksgiving. Once we were recharged with caffeine, we headed back to the hotel to get ready to see ED SHEERAN!!

      ... me tea with it! Blaire from Gossip Girl used to get her macaroons from here whenever she was sad or upset. It was a great place. After that, Ana finally called me after getting her new Europe number to work, and we met up and we went to Arc De Triomphe, and it was a beautiful! After that though, we decided to take a boat cruise around Paris. The cruise was an hour, but we saw all these lovely sites, and it was nice to be in the shade for some time, because ...

      We finally reach the catacombs where 6 million people are buried, well sort of. There are bones stacked upon bones stacked up bones. They are out in the open and you can touch them, however they ask that you do not. No flash could ...
