For my third week in Paris I had to move to another hotel. The Holiday Inn was it for the final six days. It could possibly be one of the more modern properties I have stayed in Europe. Everything about it looked like it was new or recently finished. So a definite plus for that. I did not have any maintenance issues in the room.
Another plus for the Holiday Inn was the location. Montparnasse has plenty of options for dining. It is also close to a major train station and several metro stops.
I got to the room and I immediately thought the size of the room may be an issue. This could definitely be compounded if it is more than two people or if you have a few pieces of luggage. As a good general piece of advice consider how long you will be staying and how much luggage you carry. For me it felt a little cramped and it was just one person.
Another issue with the room was the closet. The way the rack for the hangers was placed was not the most convenient one. You practically had to arrange your clothes in the order you were going to wear them.
They had a breakfast option available and in terms of cost it was possible if you absolutely had to take it. In my case I passed on it since I would have to take the breakfast option for the whole six days I was going to be there. I only wanted it for three days but management said it was for the entire stay or no breakfast at all. Who knows maybe they have other travel packages during the different seasons.
Overall I think it is a good place to stay if you are only there for the short term.
