... customs was very busy. It was now about 7.30pm (Perth time). Jacob was there waiting for me and so was Nancy. I just wanted to get home now, it had been a long day and I had only had about 4 hours sleep. Jacob brought me home in my car and Ainsley came and picked up Jacob, it was lovely to see them both. Harvey and Jasmin were excited to see me, but a lovely hot cup of tea and an early night was what I wanted most. Another wonderful holiday ...
... her flavorful embrace. Once we exited, we sprinted to the metro to feast on one of the most Americanized Mexican food chains that had stolen our hearts long ago, in a land that seemed distant through the haze of all our travels. We tore at our burritos, then went to the hostel to grab our belongings so that we could enjoy our last few hours in the land of love. We took the metro back to Eiffel tower for our last view of Paris, then got ice cream to soothe the hole that ...
... It cost 20 euro! Stuff that! I'll make room in my bag! All those years of playing tetris have to be good for something. The other good thing is that the Euro Star doesn't have a weight limit for my bags. When I fly with Malaysia Air, they give me 30 kgs. That's awesome! So really, it's all about space. I can MAKE things fit.
So this is it. The end of my lovely stay in Paris. I'm kind of sad, but excited too. See you soon Auntie Toni and Kirsty!
... a store where I can get an affordable tee shirt other than a souvenir one. Maybe not in Paris?? Decided we had had enough again, it was 5 pm, time flies! So taxi back to hotel, would have loved cup of tea but no jugs etc in room. Had a rest, did some blogging then off out for food. Had a kebab and then back to room for more blog and tv for Simon....watching French films??? No plans as yet for our last day in Paris, will need to get ready to leave Monday for Avignon. But one day in Paris to ...
... quite well, drama is hood for the delta waves. So onto today. I had nothing planned for the morning but I had to be back at the specialists office at 2 in the afternoon. My hotel is only three streets from the Louvre, so I figured, the hell with it, I don't need hands to see artwork, I might as well. (And sitting in my hotel room crying is not an option) As I walked into the square my heart skipped a beat when I saw the glass pyramid. I was even more excited as I crossed ...

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.
