... we shouldn't wait that long for a return visit.
Surely we'll be dead by then!
*Memorable Paris Moments:
*Traffic came to a stand still as we approached central Paris. Aggressive window washers in the street began squirting liquid on Nigel's car windshield even when told, "NO". One washer took hold of a wiper blade and started bending it with intent to do irreparable damage. ...
... address, and off we went. It was a nice drive, and we arrived at the hotel around 1:30pm. Our room was just ready, and reception was really nice. We went up to our room (the view is exactly what I wanted), and took a nap for about an hour and a half. The room was interesting because the toilet was in a small room that was separate from the bath/shower and sink.

I turn around to Jenessa, and she gives me the green light to proceed, under strict orders to go slow, no sudden movements and to obey her commands. We ascend the staircase and we're immediately hit by a strong cold blast of wind. It is invigorating up at the top of Tour Eiffel. At this vantage point, picking ...

Disneyland which was fun and while I was waiting for the train there was a

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Paris Vaugirard Montparnasse
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.
3 Days at New Year
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
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.
Very pleasant 5 nights in January
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
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
