We were up early to pack our bags and head off to visit some wineries before our train to Paris. Once we'd got all our stuff in the car we drove towards Mont Louis Sur-Loire, the area which is noted for its white wines. It wasn’t exactly easy finding places open as they close down during lunchtime, but we managed to …
Yes, we had to do it. Paris is just too close to ignore for any longer, and the kids had been asking since May if we could go. To cut a long story short - to visit this city in the summer months is too crowded and too expensive. Not an option for us. So, we promised we would try and go for Tara's 13th birthday, and as we started looking at airfares …
... and polite. I decided to come back to the Seine the next night and do the cruise on the regular Batobus, which would be so crowded, and would have the option of being outside for better photography options.
While I can say that I have been to the second level of the Eiffel Tower, this wasn’t a wonderful experience either. Even with a ‘skip the queue ticket’, you have to fight with everyone else to get into the lift at the bottom for the trip up, ...
... down our food because I was worried since I parked in a handicap zone. There was just no parking anywhere so I just parked there. We ate fast and got back to our fast. No ticket.
Also managed to get my charger back. I met Baptiste at Place Clichy which is about 18 stations away...took a good 50 minutes to get there. I had to wait for an hour because he was late due to work but it was worth it. So happy I got my charger and my computer back!
... at the end and the pace is deserted within 10 minutes. It is 11pm after all and we finally got to see Paris at night. Train ride home was bearable as the trains were not too packed and the photos Hugh took turned out great as you can see from the samples he has attached to this blog. Off to Reims in the morning, Paris has been a wonderful city to spend the last 5 days in and we are very much looking forward to the Champagne District that awaits us tomorrow. Au Revoir ...

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.
