Two pilgrimages and Paris

A travel blog entry by jerram.bateman


... a somewhat facetious reference to the throngs of flea-ridden hippies 'tripping' their way around developing countries in an attempt to achieve some sort of nirvana, but that's not to say that travel has not contributed to knowing thyself. For example, spending the best part of my first day in Paris at Musee d' Orsay and Musee du Louvre, or more precisely, in the queues to get into Musee d' Orsay and Musee du Louvre, confirmed my long-held suspicion that ...

Let's Go Up the Eiffel Tower, or not

A travel blog entry by mark_robyn


... we had found a café in that part of the city that was really good, especially the pizza. I had said I was going to have that pizza again, we found the café and I ate my pizza. So just like Robyn waiting two years and traveling 5000 miles for French Onion soup I travelled 5000 miles for pizza. This is not the best pizza in the world but it is very flavorful and I like it.


A little retail therapy to calm the nerves

... only to land in the middle of a protest. We thought the protesters counted approx 25, whereas the riot police were into the hundreds with dozens of vehicles standing by and streets blocked off. We thought if we put our hearts into it the two of us could probably raise more of a riot than the half hearted protesters.
We finally arrived home where Adam and Katie were beginning to worry about us, though they had calmed their nerves with savoury and sweet crepes ...

... we were going shopping next. We were all hanging out for the light show at 9pm. When it came to the fateful hour we watched as the entrance to Fantasyland - a huge castle - lit up with light fireworks and water sprayed up high in the air. We all throughy enjoyed Disneyland but we had to leave. After a lllooonnnggg stop at MacDonalds we were on the train home. We arrived at home at around midnight. Sooo tired ����� ...

Rush Hour - part 2

A travel blog entry by louize74


... Now that was an experience. I actually don't know what we were thinking when we made the ridiculous decision to do that. Old Mate (the bike rider) took us straight out among the crazy Paris traffic, talk about freak me out, you will have to watch the video to fully comprehend just how scary it actually was, even then I'm not sure you'll understand. Anyway we eventually made it home safely.

Running extremely late we had ...

    Un sejour memorable


    Mon sejour de 3 nuits dans ce petit endroit de charme, loge dans l'ecrin d'un quartier figurant parmi les plus beaux de Paris, reste un souvenir exceptionnel.

    La qualite des prestations fournies par l'hotel (literie, proprete des chambres, services de VOD...) n'a d'egal que la disponibilite et la gentillesse de son personnel dirige par leur volubile et affable directeur Monsieur Mona.

    Je recommanderai bien evidemment a l'avenir cet hotel a mes proches.

    Great Place to Stay


    Nice modern decor. For a three night stay, we had room 14, just up one flight, with a little balcony to sit out on.

    Superb and stylish


    This hotel (opened just a few months ago), is situated on a good location in a nice street, just around the corner of Rue Montpernasse.

    We liked our room. Although not large, it was decorated and furnised with style and sense of color. The bed was great.

    The hotel itself is decorated with a lot of visual surprises and has a very nice atmosphere. The art is made by local, but getting-to-be famous artists (you can visit their atelier on request).

    The staff is not only very professional but also friendly and multi-lingual, and the breakfast was superb.

    We just stayed one night, but we definitely will come back in this very nice hotel.

    Hervorragend und stylish


    Dieses Hotel (erst vor ein paar Monaten eröffnet), liegt sehr gut in einer schönen Straße, gleich um die Ecke von der Rue Montparnasse.

    Uns hat das Zimmer gefallen. Es war zwar nicht groß, aber stilvoll und mit Sinn für Farben dekoriert und eingerichtet. Das Bett war super.

    Das Hotel selbst ist mit vielen visuellen Überraschungen dekoriert und die Atmosphäre ist sehr schön. Die Kunst ist von ortsansässigen, aber aufstrebenden Künstlern (man kann auf Anfrage deren Ateliers besichtigen).

    Das Personal ist nicht nur sehr professionell, sondern auch freundlich und spricht viele Sprachen. Das Frühstück war hervorragend.

    Wir waren nur eine Nacht da, werden aber definitiv wieder in dieses sehr schöne Hotel kommen.

    Look No Further, THIS is the Place You Want to Stay in Paris


    This was my first time in Paris and to be honest, I was nervous. For years I have heard the stories of how Parisians treat Americans and I was not sure what if anything I would encounter. To my absolute delight it was wonderful! My husbandand I have travelled throughout Europe and I must say the Parisians are some of the friendliest, nicest, flexible people we have met. The Hôtel des Académies et des Arts at 15 rue de la Grande Chaumière was in one word, sublime. First, I want to say that it is not my nature to wax on and on about something like this, but we stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and it was one of if not the most pleasurable experience we have ever had staying in a hotel. The people who own this hotel and those that work for him bent over backwards to make us happy and in today's fast-paced technological-everybody's too busy-world "personaliized service" is the rarity and no longer the norm, staying at the Hôtel des Académies et des Arts was like staying with friends in Paris, the service was OUTSTANDING and this hotel and all the people that work there deserve all the accolades I am going to give it.

    Fantastic Hotel - Would Highly recommend


    Just spent an amazing weekend at the hotel des academies et des arts. Having heard the reputation of the room sizes in Paris, was pleasantly surprised to find that this was not the case here. The decor, attention to detail and finishing touches throughout the building have made this the nicest hotel I have stayed in to date. Also as the hotel is less than a five minute walk from the metro line and various restaurants and bars, the location can only be beaten by the fantastic staff who work here. Already looking forward to returning early next year - would highly recommend this hotel.

    Great Find


    Spent 4 lovely days in this ultra-modern Hotel. Great bathrooms,and bedrooms. Decor is very Parisian!

    Loved the artwork. The breakfasts were outstanding. Great service. We will be back.

    Recommend highly.

    Moderner Schick!


    Ich habe hier letzte Woche 5 Nächte verbracht. Ich war absolut begeistert vom neuen Dekor dieses kürzlich renovierten Hotels. Die Ausführung ost von höchster Qualität und kleinere Schwierigkeiten wurden sofort behoben.

    Es war das bequemste Bett, in dem ich je geschlafen habe und die Dusche mit 6 Düsen war besonders super zum Entspannen - sehr willkommen nach einem Tag herumlaufen im heißen Paris.

    Das Frühstück, wenn auch teuer, war wunderschön präsentiert und sehr sättigend.

    Man kann das Hotel leicht von der Metrohaltestelle Vavin und mit der RER-Linie B vom Flughafen Charles de Gaulle erreichen.

    Zum Schluss: Das Personal war wunderbar hilfsbereit und gastfreundlich.

    Modern Chic!


    Stayed here for 5 nights last week. Absolutely loved the new decor in this recently refurbished hotel. The finishes are of the highest quality and any minor snags that did occur were being dealt with as soon as they arise.

    The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the showers are particularly cool with 6 body sprays for all over relaxation which was most welcome after a hot day walking around Paris.

    Breakfast, if a little on the expensive side, was beautifully presented and very filing.

    The Hotel is easily accessible from Vavin metro station and easy to get to using the RER line B from Charles de Gaulle Airport.

    Finally the staff were wonderfully helpful and welcoming.

    Stylish and brand new


    Just stayed three nights here. What a fantastic hotel. It is great value and the quality of the finishes in the rooms is superb. They are quite small but perfectly formed. It was only re-opened as a 3 star hotel but in terms of the rooms, I have stayed in much worse 4 and 5 star hotels previously. If you like a contemporary boutique 'feel' then I could not recommend it more highly at the price.
