... the shop. I managed to find a decent sized Carrefour walking distance from the apartment where we stocked up on food for the week and other necessities.
Back at the apartment with a clean sponge in hand I proceeded to clean every item in the kitchen (there weren't many), wipe down the benches, throw out the food in the fridge and pantry that was past its use by date, put away all ...
Today was pretty much a transit day. We left Athens in Greece and flew up to Paris, France. We caught the airport bus, directly across from our hotel and set off for the airport at around 12 pm, as that was our check-out time. We arrived at the airport and were quite impressed. A lot of good shops to look through. We had the most amazing lunch – a salad bar. Everything you could imagine. A lovely big plate full of fresh ...
... Claude Monet of water lilies. there were two or three rooms, each wall holding a single painting about twenty feet long. There were other nice paintings but nothing that I specifically noted. Next I headed to the Museum D'Orsay, passing a nifty riverside park. This museum was massive and didn't allow any pictures. The pieces I took special note of were:
Champs De Tulipes en Holland by Claude Monet
Python Enlacant Une Gazelle by Antoine Louis ...
... French friend Eliane: a creamy Brie de Meaux. We supplement this with juicy plump and delicious fresh figs, purchased at a local fruiterer for the princely sum of €0.77 for four. Between courses I engage in some true urban Parisian domesticity, with a modern twist: down to the launderette at the corner of our building to use their dryer, and a spot of photo-editing on my iPad while I wait. Our second course is a medium-strength blue, washed down with ...
Perfect weather, 26 degrees, not a cloud in the sky. All just as we had wish for. Croissants from the patisserie across the road to start the day, nothing better than the smell of fresh bread to get you going.
Prior to our first booked tour of the Eiffel Tower, a river cruse of the Seine and ending up at Moulin Rouge later in the evening we decided to walk down to Notre Dame. The day was actually quite hot but bearable. Too many things ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du Theatre Paris
Little Italy in the heart of Paris
Have just got back from a 5 night stay in Paris having booked this hotel based on the other reviews. We were more than happy with the location (betweeen Rome and Villiers metros) and it is very easy to get around. A really nice area of the city away from the busy bits with great local restaurants and bars (try the one right next door for friendly local Parisien life) There are loads of Italian places to eat which are all open really late (except Sundays) Our room was tiny with a desk/chair we could not use as it was up against the bed and no view as we were in the basement. However it was clean and comfortable and very good value for such an expensive city. The staff were friendly enough though we were out all day and hardly saw them. The view of the Sacre Cour from the main road made it all worthwhile! The local area is safe and clean and we would most certainly recommend Hotel du Theatre.
One of my best boutique hotel experience
I am just back from a 2 week stay in Paris and London and I have to say that the Hotel du Theatre is definitely one of the highlights of my trip.
It is an extremely nice hotel, wonderfully located with a very helpful and knowledgeable staff. The rooms are cozy and full of a "je ne sais" French charm that you won't find at the Marriott on the Champs Elysees.
They might not have 30 tv channels, but given the purpose of the trip, I have to say that the amenities were already beyond my (usually high) expectations.
All in all, I can't help recommending all smart travellers to go there. The price/quality is hard to beat!
Secret Residential Paris
Hotel has great location, easy access to metro, walking distance to Galeries Lafayette and is surrounded by all restaurants you may wish.
Owner and staff are superb and love the hotel business so it's nice to feel welcome.
Also prices are very decent and there are pluses like internet access, wifi, a nice breafast cellar and good French bkfast ingredients (the crusty type, not the sponge croissant)
Rooms style is a bit oldy but they are fresh, clean and have all amenity. And it is very quiet at night!
I will stay here again
Good experience at Hotel du Theatre
We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel du Theatre.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were well kept and quiet, although they are on the small side. Breakfast was very good. We tend to like the personalized service that you find in small hotels & this one fit the bill.
The location was fantastic - close to the subway, a great neighborhood to walk around in with good restaurants, not a touristy part of town.
Overall, a very good value for the price & I would return.
A "value" gem
Just spent 3 nights at Hotel du Theatre with my wife. During a previous trip (not in Paris), we "discovered" that we don't like to be "in the center of things" - often too expensive and too many downsides (noise, crowds, hard to get good service) but we like convenience and the ability to get anywhere easily so we now look for places just on the side. The Hotel du Theater fits that bill perfectly.
- well located (easy access to museums, shopping and restaurants - often by foot or short subway ride)
- staff - helpful and willing to spend time to help guests. ask about restaurants in the neighborood. They can point you to local authentic frenc restaurants that you wouldn't find in a guidebook
- breakfast - ours was included in our rate - was very generous (all-you-can-eat croissants)
- clean (sadly enough, it's not very common these days)
- room size on the small side
At the end, we were very happy with the hotel because we felt we got great value for our rate.
Enjoying Paris ? Yes
We spent a week end in this very charming hotel, located in the heart of Paris, nearby the most famous shopping area of "Grands Magasins". The staff was very keen in taking care of us and very friendly, helping us in organizing our visit and advising us with typical french restaurants and special areas to visit in Paris.
Our room was very comfortable and very quiet, which is a plus in a big city.
I just recommend the "Hotel du Theatre" if you want your stay in Paris to be a memorable one
One of my favourite hotels of my trip
We stayed here for five nights in late January/early February on our first trip to Paris.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would stay again when we return to Paris.
We paid a very good price- 60 euro/night as an internet booking, which was very good for Paris but excellent considering what we got for it.
The location is excellent- on the rihgt bank, juts out of the way so that it's not too expensive, within walking distance of Montmartre, the Champs Elysees, the shopping district, Gare du Nord, and Pigalle, but not in a touristy area so it's not too busy and you don't get bothered by anyone.
It's near a tube station but we liked walking through Paris so we walked everywhere- Louvre, Orsay, Ile de cite, Champs Elysees, Montmartre, Eiffel Tower, and so on. It might be too far for others, but it wouldn't be difficult to reach those places by the metro.
There are a lot of restaurants in the area, and an open market, so you are never lost for places to eat.
*Excellent service, all staff in the reception and the breakfast room are lovely and always answered any queries we had.
*It's only a small hotel, so the reception area, lift, stairs, rooms and breakfast room are quite small, which we liked the atmosphere of- much more character than a large chain hotel. It might be not be everyone's cup of tea though.
*There is a very nice aesthetic- the reception area and the rooms are nicely fitted out, and our room was different to those on the photos above.
*There is good access to great food- open markets, a supermarket, bakeries, well-priced restaurants all nearby.
*There is internet in the hotel lobby, but there is also a good internet cafe just up the end of the road- safe access with good rates.
*Excellent breakfast- good coffee, cereals, pastries, baguettes
*Always cleaned well
*Clean bathrooms with a good shower
*The area is very safe for walking around at night and had a nice atmosphere, without being touristy.
Not so good:
*The rooms were small as someone else mentioned- but we were backpacking and didn't have mnay belongings, and only were at the hotel for sleeping, so this didn't bother us. But if you want to spend a lot of time in your room, this might not be the place for you.
I really loved staying here and will definitely stay here again if I return to Paris, even if paying more for the room.
If you want to walk out of your hotel and be next to a tourist site or are unable to do much walking you might need somewhere closer.
But if you enjoy walking, and want to visit Montmartre and Pigalle as well as the left bank, yet want to stay in an area where you feel safe, this hotel is ideal. I would recommend this place for any of my family or friends to stay at. Having such a nice hotel to go back to at the end of each day really made a difference to our trip.
Small Rooms Convenient location
We stayed at Hotel Du Theatre for my 40th birthday and was our first time in Paris. I have to say I was disappointed with the size of the room but it was clean and quiet, although a little tatty. We were lucky as the weather was fantasic so hardly anytime was spent in the room itself. Breakfast was served in a small room in the basement and was very nice. The location was really handy we could comfortably walk to Monte Marte and the Moulin Rouge and the nearest metro station was 2 minutes away with direct lines to the Champs Elise and Arc de Triomphe etc. All in all I would return to the Hotel du Theatre due to the handy location but only for a weekend break.
Hotel Du Theatre
Budget hotel in the 17th, on the right bank. It is near Parc Monceau. I found it convenient..near subway..shops..an out door market everyday.
Not a touristy area. The rooms are small with hardly ANY storage for your belongings. I found that annoying...I didn't take very much and between myself and my friend we mostly kept everything in our luggage.
There is no chest of any sort. NO mirror on the very small table, as a woman traveling with another person that is an inconvenience, the cable channels were out , (due to construction on the hotel). The phone didn't work properly.. the shower door was awkward. The thing that bothered me the most was there was no frig in the room. Sometimes particularily on a rainy cold night we did not want to go out to eat.
We were limited to the thing we could buy to eat in the room. We stored things outside the window.
On the positive side ..the owners and staff were VERY NICE people. It is clean and very convenient. I use to live in Paris in the 7th e and even though I prefer the left bank, I had no problem with this neighborhood.
I have to say that I did ENJOY my stay and would not want anyone to avoid this small family run hotel.
