BEST WESTERN Hotel De Weha

... then kept going. I guess my plan to fix this was to "walk it off" or something. I saw a sign for the Champs-Élysées and that is near my hotel so I went that way. Walking for a while, no more signs. Finally, saw a sign for rue St Honore, which is the street behind the hotel, so I followed it. It felt too wide but I stuck with it, and was eventually rewarded when things started to look familiar. But it was still really nice out, so now ...
Bonjour from Paris! Elvis and I arrived in Paris, tired after more than 24 hours of travel. We decided to try getting a train to our accommodation, however this became a mission trying to find the station, trying to work the ticket machines and getting directions. After an hour and a half of wandering around the airport we ended up deciding a cab was the easiest option. We jumped into the cab and I gave directions to the cab driver: Me: we are staying in an apartment ...
... copy of the Pieta (the original being in St Peter’s in Rome). The castle stands on a cliff overlooking a bend in the river. It is privately owned and not open to the public.
In a small village is a museum that David in particular enjoyed, me too, for I got to sit on some old tractors. The collection inside was of mostly Czech manufactured cars, motorbikes and trucks, but also included a good selection from other east European countries with an occasional ...
... lunch we made our way to the Palais Garnier, Paris Opera House, This building is stunning and was the setting for the novel Phantom of the Opera. The interior is luxurious with it's grand marble staircase, mosaic covered ceiling and many chanderliers I thought this was much more beautiful than Versailles. We also got to watch the ballerinas rehearsing which was lovely and saw the Marc Chagall painted ceiling in the auditorium. Next we went to the Galleria Lafayette ...
... my hair bent over with cold water. My stylist tells me to rinse with cold water anyway... Happy to be clean, I got ready and headed out to meet my Google folks at Frenchie's Wine Bar. I knew of Frenchie's because it was recommended to me by a VP at my office. Translation-it's out of your league, Kristen. Turns out this is across the street from the mother restaurant and you don't need a reservation, but it's the same chef and he pops across the street from one side to the other ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel De Weha Paris
My husband and I stayed here a couple of years ago. Our room was on the front side of the hotel facing the street and people partied all night long in an apartment across the street It was very noisy. Smallest room we've ever stayed in. Smallest bathroom, too! TV didn't work. Not much interesting in this area. We stayed 2 nights and then changed to another hotel. We will never stay in a Best Western hotel again.
Good Paris hotel
My wife and I spend three nights at this hotel from August 15 to 18. (Having stayed at a bad Paris hotel years before, I was especially interested in having a better experience this time around).
I did. The hotel is safe, clean and professionally run. The rooms are small but clean, with great bathrooms and minibars (I would never buy expensive minibar food, but they always make great fridges, don't they).
The hotel's location in Place d'Italie was convenient for metro access. We also found bus #27 very frequent and useful for getting to Notre-Dame, the Louvre, Opera, etc.
We stayed at this hotel in May of 2004 and we were very disappointed. We had been to Paris before but my husband and I were bringing his parents to Paris for their first time as a present for my father-in-law's 60th Birthday. This made it all the more important that the hotel was good. The hotel looked really nice on the web but was far from it. Even allowing for the fact that this is a tourist class/ budget hotel I would have to say that this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. There are other hotels in this category similarly priced which are much better value for money. We were first given a really poor room with a separate toilet and bath were you could barely close the door in either for the lack of space. The hairdryer was broken, the bed linen was dirty. The list goes on. When we complained the staff were not all that sympathetic but we were eventually moved after the first night to a room across the hall which was better. On the plus side the bathrooms are clean and the breakfasts are quite good but I wouldn't recommend staying here. In fact it has really put me off ever staying in a Best Western hotel again. This hotel nearly spoiled what was otherwise a great time in Paris.
Clean, nice staff, great tourist hotel!
We booked this hotel through Virgin Airlines vacations. It was in a good location- super close to the train, walking distance restaurants. Nice quiet residential neighborhood. The room was small but VERY Clean. Nice continental breakfast selection. All fresh. Staff was very friendly. This was my first trip to Europe. Exceeded my expectations.
I realize this is a very late review, but we stayed here in March 2000. Our room was small but clean. The staff spoke English and were helpful and friendly. The area is dull and boring; the neighboring restaurants were bad, but it was close to the Metro. Since you can get anywhere in Paris on the Metro, it would be worth staying here if you are on a budget.
Friendly staff, nice clean room, great continental breakfast
I stayed here in May of 2002. I booked through go-today, and found the hotel very nice for the price. The desk staff spoke English and were very helpful. I expected a paltry continental breakfast (it was included in the room price so I didn't expect much), but it was quite a spread, with pastries, bread, cereals, frest fruit and juices, and cheeses. The room was bright, cheery and clean. Downside? I didn't care for the area. It didn't seem dangerous or anything, but it's fairly charmless.
I booked this hotel thru Bestwestern 1800 number. One of the staff members who was originally from Paris -suggested me this hotel since there was a promotion going on and this hotel was in a good location.I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights in last week of October' 2002. The hotel was good. Everything was neat and clean. The rooms are small though...maybe European tourist standards from what I hear of...we had a good time staying in this hotel. Its 2 minutes from the PLACE DE Italie metro station. Very convinient to go to anywhere in PARIS from this station. Area was safe with lots of cafes, brasseries and restaraunts in the area. We absolutely loved this area - Place De Italie. I would love to go back and stay in this area and hotel. I was told that the hotel rooms around at that time for this hotel was $150. I got it for $75 on a special promotion that happened during that week. (Its true) The Printemps shopping mall was within 4 minutes walking distance and behind the hotel. Great area to stay and take a stroll.
