The hotel and staff were fine - Novotel hotels usually are. We were frustrated by the terrace bar/lounge - drinks with a view of the Eiffel Tower - which was never open when we wanted to use it. A drink before going out for dinner? Not open yet. A nightcap after a night out - closed already. I suppose if you want to stay at the hotel all night and not go out it would work.
One not-so-great thing about the hotel itself: the toilet wasn't flushed when we checked in - so obviously it was not cleaned, and the shower barely drained - which should be obvious when cleaning it - just pour some drain cleaner down it!

thank you for letting us know about your stay.
I am sorry to learn that your experience did not live up to your expectations. I have noted your overall feedback and have discussed it with the relevant manager for remedial action and improvement, espacially for the housekeeping.
Concerning the Lounge Bar View, it is opened from May to September, from 5PM to Midnight, sometimes a bit later on saturday !
I hope this experience will not deter you from returning to our hotel and I look froward to welcoming you back to Novotel Paris Vaugirard Montparnasse.
