Emeraude Louvre Montana Hotel
Travel Blogs from Paris
The Louve was a fun but tiring exerience. We took a private tour that started at 9:30, ps if you want to take this tour don't be late or they will put you in the next group. We started the tour with learning a bit bout the building history, after that we went down a nostly empty hall and into the main square. That is where you get a map and go to …
... that can only be described as magical! The tower is lit during the evening and at the top of every hour the lights twinkle for a minute; magical!
... a museum of African and Native art. Very interesting and felt at home in the Aboriginal section. More walking brought us to the Eiffel Tower followed by a leisurely walk along the river to our digs. Achieved 8 hours walking. A short rest then off to the local Japanese restaurant for a feed. Today's accomplishment was to exceed the cost of our 4 day museums pass and another day to go. Now for a well earned rest and a cleansing ...
... with the lady. The painting is not as big as I thought.
This place is amazing. There are 35,000 displays at any given time and the displays are divided into eight departments.
We walked through the Tuileries gardens making our way to Notre Dame. Passing Pont de l'Archeveche, the Lovers Bridge. This is where lovers padlock their "love locks" to the bridge. I witnessed two couples doing this and ...
... rain. At 3pm there was a break in the weather so I hurried to the metro station to meet the three sisters who would be coming with me into the city. They were Bella, her younger sister Chamine, and Loraine. They spoke very little English, but it was so heartwarming that they wanted to keep me company even of we couldn't communicate too well. We left the metro at Trocadéro where I got another view of the Eiffel Tower. Then, we bought tickets for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Emeraude Louvre Montana Hotel Paris
Stayed June 2004. Originally had booked across the street at the Louvre St Romain, but it was incredibly hot when we got back to Paris and one of the three of us was very uncomfortable so we stayed there one night (because we had paid for it) but then moved across the street to the Montana where it was nicely air conditioned. Staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was great, big room (three adults), coffeemaker frig iron etc in the room, beautiful big bathroom etc. A little more than we had originally planned to spend but considering the heat it was worth it. This is a great location...close to lots of right bank sites. Otherwise, the Louvre St. Romain across the street would have been great too, but the problem with not having a.c. is that you have to have open windows, and it is too noisy to sleep in a big city with your windows open...The staff there (St. Romain) was also very friendly to us even though we cancelled the remainder of our reservation, and the hotel did not even charge us for breakfast in the morning before we left.
My husband and I were in Paris for part of our honeymoon (beginning of September). We didn't know what to expect, except that European rooms, on average, would be small.
I stayed at Louvre Montana Hotel during the Easter Holidays (2004) and enjoyed its central location, its easy accessibility from four different subway stations, its reasonable prices, its friendly staff.
The rooms are not very spacious, but the bathrooms are clean and comfortable, not much noise can be heard from the streets and from the other rooms. A very narrow lift (max 1 person + luggage or 2 persons without luggage) is a nice curiosity, but I can't recommend it to people who suffer from claustrophobia. Its strategical closeness to the Louvre Museum and to other important monuments is very useful to the tourists who have limited time available to visit the heart of Paris.
We loved it!
What a delightful, quaint, and charming hotel. We were there just after the New Year's weekend, and we enjoyed our stay. Our room had windows that opened on to a fascinating courtyard which gave an air of being in a small neighborhood right in a busy part of Paris. The breakfasts each morning were delicious, and we could walk to Le Jardin des Tuileries, Louvre, La place de la Concorde, and Chanel. We hope to return.
Several websites claim this hotel is 3 star - it is NOT. The hotel is 1 star - no more. After checking in and seeing the room, I was devastated. There were two of us, and the room had a bed slightly larger than a twin that sagged in the middle. Additionally, the bedspread was pilling, the floor was lopsided, the curtains were falling off the hinge, the desk was slanted and chipped all over, the maid entered the room without knocking, we could hear people in the bathroom in the room next door, the hotel smelled, and the attitude of the manager was belligerent. My friend and I checked out before even staying the night. Despite the 3 night prepaid reservation, we found another hotel in the same area that truly was 3 stars and had similar rate. The Montana's descriptions are completely misleading. I saw no sign of any renovations, and it certainly wasn't soundproofed.
Bright and Beautiful
This wonderful little hotel is a restful haven in French Louvre district. The staff were friendly and helpful which just added to the charm of our visit. The hotel is perfectly located in the hub of Paris and it is a short walk to shops, resaturants and transportation. The room itself was very clean and bright and included extras such as coffee/tea/pant press/hairdryer and if you are so inclined a full mini bar. There was also the comfort of air conditioning that was individual to each room. The full length balcony doors opened to a delightful view of the quaint neighbourhood that surrounded the hotel. I look forward to returning some day.
Hotel was great! We were on the 6th floor (top) of the hotel. The hotel is quaint, very clean and close to all major attractions.
The elevator is tiny and fits only two people, but it added to the charm of the hotel. Our room wasn't huge, but it was bright and spotless. It had a set of floor to ceiling french doors that opened out onto a small balcony. The bathroom was a good size and again, spotless.
Each room has its own air conditioner - and it wasn't noisy.
Great bargain and very central.
