We stayed here at the end of our tour with Amawaterways. Be forewarned: it is a very stressful place to stay. They obviously deal with very large groups on a regular basis (one group, alone, numbered over 700 people). At times, the front lobby looked like Grand Central Station at rush hour. However, they are very short-staffed and incapable of dealing with these numbers. One day, there was a 20-minute wait to get into breakfast, while there were plenty of tables available inside the restaurant. The staff that was present were difficult to find, since they were covering so many tables at once. The front desk usually consisted of two or three people, and unlikely to answer the phone. The concierge was overworked, and favored French-speakers (I had to speak up when they kept cutting in).
Even worse were the elevators. It was like playing Russian roulette in reverse. You could wait for 10 minutes, then there would be no room. A very, very frustrating situation when you needed to meet your group. And just try and make a quick trip to the fitness room. There are two separate sets of elevators. To get from our room on the 6th floor, you can to go to the lobby to get to the other elevators serving the 22nd floor. That just doubled the torture.
On the positive side, it has a modern, attractive look. The room was nice, with a comfortable bed, large TV and a nice tub. However, the TV was very difficult to navigate and there are not drawers for storage. Really annoying was that the shower will change temperature without warning. There are no irons in the room. You can request one, but it dates from the Dark Ages.
Also, the location was pretty good. It’s away from the main tourist centers, and close to transportation and some good restaurants.
To summarize, the Pullman Paris Montparnasse is a very frustrating place to stay, and makes you feel like a part of a herd – not a guest. I would never stay there again.
