Took Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris Nord which took about two and a half hours.Pleasant journey as train travel through open country mostly on the France side.Stayed in St Germain area, an exciting place of people, cafes, restaurants with plenty of alfresco cafes with electrical heaters for comfort of the guests from the cold winter. …
... to drive?". "Of course!" I frantically replied, he knows too well that I LOVE PARIS. It's mad, crazy, hectic, fun and best of all you have to be daring. We finally found underground parking, it was so hot and humid but I didn't pay any attention to the car park. It was the first time I had saw Paris at night, it might sound a bit heavy but it was totally magical. A view from the Seine was the highlight of the night, I took some long exposures of ...
... so after waking up monday morning...after a 'magical' bottle of french wine...i felt amazing. i decided to pack away the map and wander through the streets collecting items for an afternoon picnic at the eiffel tower.
at the bridge “pont des artes” across from the louvre - it’s said that if you write the names of you and your lover across the padlock, clip it to the side of the bridge, and toss the key into the ...
... it has a fascinating facade. It's made up of hundreds of lenses which dilate according to how much light they want to let in. The lenses are arranged in such a way that the pattern is still very middle eastern. It's a very clever design. The walking continued as we crossed over to Ile Saint Louis and then to Ile de la Cite. We went to Notre Dame cathedral and had a look inside. We then walked to Saint Chapelle but it was closed. There seemed to be a huge ...

Then to the Musee du Marmottan - Claude Monet which has 165 of his works plus others by Sisley, Renior, Pissarro etc. Even though the suburb it is in is very near the peripherique (just on the other side is the huge Bois de Boulogne) it is a very upper middle class suburb and very attractive. It would be a nice place to stay in and explore further. A very ...

A great hotel
Loved this hotel. It was clean, comfortable, had a cozy atmosphere and the staff were very helpful. Room had everything needed for a comfy stay - immaculate bathroom, hairdryer, tea/coffee making facilities, TV with Eurosport!! Location excellent - a lovely bistro right next door, with easy access to 3 tube stations and also bus routes.
We were greeted on arrival with a tremendously warm and open welcome from the receptionist - one which continued throughout our stay from all of the reception staff.
The room was reasonably small but this fitted in with the hotel's charm and character. Got an advance discount rate for a room with a jacuzzi style bath, which was a bonus although not sure whether it would be worth paying the full rate for.
Hotel is in a great location - three metro stations are within walking distance with one directly opposite across the street. Didn't try the hotel breakfast but there are plenty of cafes nearby which serve a decent one at reasonable prices.
Would recommend this to anyone who wants a hotel with character offering good value for money.
Selected it after reading reviews here and I liked it a lot
I selected this hotel after reading the reviews on this site and I liked it a lot. I paid 100 euro/night and spent 5 nights there in August 2004. Very convenient location - we were walking everywhere, friendly personnel, small, but nice room with good size bathroom, air conditioner. No complains at all. Well, we just slept here, but who will sit on hotel room when Paris is just a few steps from your door:-)
Great location, really nice hotel
Researched many hotels in Paris, read great reviews on this hotel and am glad we stayed there. Location was great. Hotel was very nice. Typical European hotel - small room, small bathroom but it was functional, very clean and convenient. I would definitely recommend this property. Thanks Trip Advisor!
There's a Mouse in the House
I have stayed at the Hotel Aramis twice on business trips. The first time I stayed there in March 2003 there was a little mouse in my room.
My colleague also found evidence of a rodent in his room. He thought it was a rat by the size of the droppings and knibbles on the furniture.
Otherwise the staff are friendly and helpful, which may explain why I stayed there a second time in November 2003. Fortunately monsieur mousie stayed away for that visit.
A bit of charm
It's true that the exterior is not pretty and the rooms are small. But Beatrix and William are wonderfully helpful, very guest-friendly and speak perfect English. The location is great, just across the street from the metro and a 15 min walk to Blvd. St. Germaine. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, good air con, tv, etc. and have a bit of charm. I'd certainly return, the Aramis is comfortable, friendly and excellent value for money.
Staff couldn't be more helpful!
This hotel offered a great location and helpful staff. Beatrix at the front desk was kind, patient and went out of her way to help us during our stay. We stayed in a triple room and while it was small, it was immaculate. Good location, near cafes, bakeries, shops and metro across the street. We walked to many locations from this hotel.Only disappointment was the outside of the hotel is not as pretty as posted on the internet web site. We payed $190. US Easter week 2004 and were happy with our choice.
A great little hotel
We stayed at the Aramis St. Germain for four days in April 2004. The rooms were very nice and clean. They are not large, but that was to be expected in Europe. While there is no restaurant in the hotel, they do provide breakfast (croissant, baguette, cheese, coffee, tea, juice, for $10 euros) if you don't want to walk to one of the many cafes nearby.
The location is great - it is within walking distance of many sites, and many shoppes. The hotel staff was great-always friendly and very helpful. We would definitely return.
Great Deal in Paris
We stayed at the Aramis for 5 nights and had a great stay. The rooms are small (normal for paris) but adequate, the staff was great and the location can't be beat. There are two metro stops within a block or so, walking distance to the louvre, luxembourg gardens and st. germain.
This is not a flashy hotel, but for the price (we paid 115 eruos per night), it was great.
I highly recommed the aramis.
