    Pullman continues to revolutionise the architecture and design of its five Paris establishments in collaboration with eight renowned designers. Following the Pullman Paris La Défense in March 2013, the Pullman Paris Bercy in October 2013, and the Pullman Paris Charles de Gaulle in May, the Pullman Paris Montparnasse will now unveil its new look. In July, the Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel will complete this unique project: 30 months of renovation work, 2,510 rooms revamped and 26,000 m2 of public areas redesigned.A privileged location on the Left Bank

    Ideally located just a stone’s throw from Montparnasse train station and at a crossroads between three arrondissements (6th, 14th and 15th), the Pullman Paris Montparnasse unveils its new look after eighteen months of renovations (started on November 14, 2011).

    The hotel offers guests a cosmopolitan, vibrant and stylish experience in the heart of Montparnasse, a district steeped in “rive gauche” atmosphere.

    A top meetings address with the largest conference centre in Europe

    The Pullman Paris Montparnasse boasts 4,000 m2 of entirely renovated meeting space. The hotel’s 49 meeting rooms are modular and can be adapted for any circumstances (they can host up to 2,000 people).

    The brand’s Co-Meeting concept allows each participant to focus on the essentials, cohesion and commitment through an innovative approach to the organisation of meetings, conventions or incentive events: dedicated spaces, cutting-edge equipment, innovative breaks and a team of specialists (Event Manager, IT Solutions Manager).

    Pullman is an expert in event organisation and offers a unique meeting experience with the “Business Playground by Pullman” boardroom created exclusively for the brand by designer Mathieu Lehanneur. This room reflects the brand’s “Work hard, Play hard” motto as well as its guests’ lifestyle. It combines performance and pleasure with a fresh take on the traditional aspects of a meeting: a meeting table designed like a poker table, a private area for informal conversations or breaks and a cabinet of curiosities…

    Gastronomy at the Pullman Paris Montparnasse: an upscale and cosmopolitan culinary experience

    The hotel’s restaurant Just’in has become one of the Left Bank’s business lunch hot spots. It offers a large and varied buffet lunch combining freshness and diversity. Behind these colourful and tasty French and international dishes, is Chef Eric Sanchez who manages one of the largest hotel kitchens in Europe (2,000 m2), catering amply for its business and leisure guests.

    To perfect the culinary experience, pastry chef Gérard Biscaut revisits the great French pastry classics: Baba au rhum, Saint-Honoré, Paris-Brest, etc.

    On Sundays, from September to June, the Baby Brunch served at restaurant Just’in allows parents to enjoy an exceptional buffet while their children are entertained with amusing activities and games.

    The Power Lunch by Pullman guarantees business guests a full course lunch served in or under 45 minutes from the moment the order is taken to the moment the bill settled.

    The Vinoteca by Pullman offers a genuine wine-tasting experience with a wide selection of international grands crus as well as local wines served by the glass or bottle. The list was put together and signed by Olivier Poussier elected the World’s Best Sommelier in 2000.

    A stylish, designer hotel

    A lobby and bar designed by Didier Gomez
    These 2 spaces at the centre of the hotel were entirely redone by interior designer Didier Gomez. He created a colourful, bright open space lobby with intimate areas that guests can enjoy to work or unwind.

    The “Café Atlantic” bar plays on transparency to offer a cosy, bright space that is both roomy and intimate. The hushed atmosphere makes this an ideal place to discuss business or enjoy a moment’s relaxation.

    The lobby is decorated with the monumental globe created by designer Mathieu Lehanneur. This iconic Pullman object symbolises travel and the brand’s cosmopolitan personality.

    The Pullman Paris Montparnasse offers all the brand’s “signature services”: the Welcomer, the Pullman bed, free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, the Connectivity by Pullman concept, the Co-Meeting offer for the organisation of business events, Nespresso® services, Vinoteca by Pullman, the Fit Lounge, etc.

    Modern, elegant rooms and suites
    The Pullman Paris Montparnasse’s 957 rooms and suites were created by designers Didier Rey and Mila Stokic, and feature a monochrome atmosphere highlighted with touches of colour. They offer guests the best of the Pullman experience: a large desk and armchair, the Pullman bed with memory foam pillows, a rain shower, etc.
    The rooms located on the higher floors carry guests away thanks to their breathtaking view of Paris.
