I would just like to ask for some advice regarding the Montparnasse area please.
Hubby & I will be travelling to Paris again next year (with my sister in law) & I am thinking of booking at the Hotel Edouard Vl. We have preiously stayed in the 9th & the 5th/6th Arr.
I do have a mobility problem, a weakness in my legs & I found that staying in those areas, we would often have to change Metro lines (sometimes twice) to get to where we wanted to go. Although the Metro was quick & efficient, there was often a lot of walking underground to change lines.
I noticed on the Metro map that Montparnasse has a single line that goes to just about everywhere we will want to visit. So very convenient.
I do not really like the area around Gare du Nord or Gare de l'Est though, and was wondering if it is going to be similar around Gare Montparnasse? If so, I would rather stay in an area like the 6th or 9th.
It will be my sister in laws first visit & I want her to be in a pleasant area, with the usual cafes, bakeries, shops, etc.
