Novotel is our favorite Montparnasse hotel as it impresses with a modern accommodation, comfortable rooms, a tasty breakfast spread, and a useful hotel gym. The colorful lobby will put a smile on your face and the visually appealing restaurant should also satisfy your hunger. All 199 guest-quarters are outfitted in Scandinavian-ish furnishings: light wood accents, ergonomic functionality and simple shapes. Bath areas have showers and tubs. 24-hour room service and high speed internet are additional perks. The hotel is "soundproofed," but its location is a block or two from a busy street, so noise really isn't a problem to begin with.
The fitness center is small, but it has large windows, flat screen televisions and bright coloring. More important, the useful space stocks two top notch Technogym cardio machines (bike and treadmill) and a multigym. We know, we know, three pieces of equipment and they get a "Silver" rating! Yes, but this is the best you'll find in Montparnasse.
