Hotel Aida Marais
Travel Blogs from Paris
We flew into Paris CDG airport from London early in the morning (after getting engaged at the London airport before we left, very exciting!) and arrived around 8am, excited and hardly believing this was happening after weeks of planning!
As we were so early, we had to waste a little time because we couldn't get into our hotel until …
We awoke early today with our first stop being Gare Du Nord to book our tickets to Amsterdam for the following day! It took us forever to find the station again, taking a bit of a detour via the Gare Du L'Est and a French market... It was a welcome detour, though, and we had a lovely time looking round the streets and the market stalls!
... The Wedding Feast at Cana' is the largest painting and the only one not returned to its country of origins because the Italians don't want to back because it's too big.
... a large tennis ball is suspended under the tower. To get the best view we walked to the Palais De Chaillot across the river to find a vantage point for photos.
To complete our walk we followed the northern side of the river passed the Grand Palais and Petit Palais until the Jardin Des Tuileries was in sight. It was here that we found a lovely outdoor café to have lunch.
... and cool weather made for a nice afternoon in the gardens before we walked down to rue St.-Sulpice for the bus back home.
We rested a couple hours at the apartment before heading to the Eiffel Tower for dinner. One of the items on Irene's trip list was to ascend the tower to the top, but the daily lines to do so are long and discouraging. By making a dinner reservation at the restaurant on the first level, 58 Tour ...

Quite a long way from the main sights but very close to Gare Du Nord station and some lovely restaurants/shops. The staff are friendly, rooms are lovely (and recently decorated) and for quite a good price considering it is Paris!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aida Marais Paris
Ich war vom 22. bis 25. März für drei Nächte im Hotel. Da ich behindert bin und alleine reiste, musste ich meine Ausflüge und Touren schon alle vorher buchen, genauso wie die An- und Abreise zum Hotel. Das Personal hätte nicht hilfsbereiter sein können, sie haben alles für mich organisiert und haben auch sichergestellt, dass ich englischsprachige Reiseführer hatte, obwohl ich das gar nicht verlangt hatte. Aber mein Französisch ist nicht so gut. An der Rezeption haben alle Englisch gesprochen. Das Hotel hatte einen Lift, was mir sehr geholfen hat. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und das Bett sehr komfortabel. Es gab genug Stauraum für die Kleidung und eine exzellente digitale gesicherte Aufbewahrungsbox. Das Badezimmer war makellos und das Zimmer wurde jeden Tag von den freundlichen Zimmermädchen gemacht. Der Frühstücksraum sah freundlich aus und das Essen war üppig und die Auswahl reichhaltig. Ich würde ohne zu zögern wieder dieses Hotel buchen.
Just returned from paris after spending a lovely long weekend in a fabulous hotel. NOT THE PRINTANIA REPUBLIQUE! We (myself and girlfriend) spent only 2 hours in the hotel before moving due to renovation work. Building work was being carried out on every floor from the reception area to the 5th floor, we were on the 6th. There were rolls of carpet, bags of rubbish and electrical tools lying all over the narrow stairs, the only fire escape.
The bedroom was small, tiny wardrobe that didn't open, gas radiator held together with sticky tape, shower curtain on the floor, blind didn't work.
I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights 22 -25 march 2006.
We stayed in the hotel during new years eve. The location of the hotel is very close to several metro stations. There are also a lot of shops and restaurants nearby the hotel, but we didn't shop or eat there.
All the necessities with a little extra
A very convenient location, a reasonable 20 minutes walk to Hotel-De-Ville, 1 minute away from Place de la Republique. It is also notable that a journey from/to the CDG airport took us only 45 minutes (RER + 2 underground stops). Yet, the location is quiet.
The room is basic with the tube bath and DVD player as extras. Unlike my previous stays in Paris, the breakfast was quite generous. We gladly used the option to order it to your room (no extra charge).
The price was also reasonable, considering the season (Christmas).
we appreciate your comments and we look forward to welcoming you upon your next visit in Paris.

I have just returned from the printania hotel out in paris/france and it was a disgrace. I wouldn't even allow my dogs to stay in the room.
Finding a good hotel in Paris for an affordable price is hard. The Printania is such a hotel and offers a number of features that shouldn't be taken for granted in a 3-star hotel in Paris:
Hotel Printania Republique is located 1 1/2 blocks away from metro station Jaques Bonsergeant (Line 5) and few meters from the Place de la Republique, it isn't a very touristic area, but it's close to everything walking or by metro. We were assigned to room 307 and it faced the street Chateau D'Eau (so it was a bit noisy). The room was clean, not too small and confortable, but had no shower (only bathtub).
What a surprise!
Excellent quality/price ratio, and a beautiful surprise: a not too touristic part of the city but close to the trendiest part of it as to bars and clubs: the gay district! WOW! The hotel itself is very nice, with neat, quiet and wide rooms, compared to what I've seen in other hotels in Paris (ohmygod!). Good average continental beakfast, slightly over the average I must say. 24h reception (fundamentaal for going out at night). What more to say.... I definitely recommend it.
thank you for sharing your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Please note our hotel changed name in July 2006: Best Western Aida Marais. We will be pleased to welcome you upon your next visit.
