Champagne...could this be my spiritual home?
Felicity and I arrived in Reims yesterday lunchtime after a relaxing Eurostar trip from London via Paris, managed to find our "surprisingly fancy" Best Western and wandered to Veuve Cliquot for our 2pm appointment. Oh it was lovely being at veuve's house, as you would expect everything was …
... dump" car ( ford ) to its place. We got supplies from the local super market ( I think it was not super, it was the opposite of super ) we got to the hotel and had lunch. After that we had a walk to the Sacré Cauer and up there it was a great view. P.s. It was raining :( We went back to the hotel and we warmed up and went back out side and went outside to get dinner, we found ...
First up today we went for a walk to the HUGE cathedral in Reims which was amazing. Later we drove to Epernay where they have the huge wine cellars/ caves.

... The kids found another ice rink in town, but it was quite busy so they decided not to have a skate today. We bought a few small bottles of Champagne to try, some a bit extravagant, but they were only small bottles so they don't count. We decided not to look at the price of the two glasses of Tattinger Rose we had with dinner ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel de la Paix Reims
Just got back from a weekend away in Reims, we stayed at this hotel for one night. Reading back over the reviews I can see why some of them contrast so dramatically. The lobby to the hotel has been recently renovated and its very contempory and stylish... unfortunately this can't be said for all of the hotel - if you book a cheaper room you end up going left from the reception in to what could be a completely different hotel - dark, drab, carpets wearing through, old rickety lift and not that inspiring bedroom - more 70's travel inn than 3 star hotel.
We stayed at the hotel in August 2005. The hotel is super modern and it was clear that it had just been fully refurbished. It has an excellent location in the centre of Reims near to lots of good restaurants. It has its own very secure car park for an extra 10 Euros. We booked it after collecting a hotel guide from the tourist information. We paid 130 Euros for a double room. We now know we could have paid half that much had we booked online in advance! At 75 Euros its really excellent value. We had a standard room which was more than adequate. It was not particularly large -I'd describe it as 'compact'. However there was sufficient space for the travel cot they were able to provide for our baby. The decor was very, very modern-and not to everyones taste. We also had a very small balcony. Watch out for the shower. It is at floor level with no basin and ours managed to overflow almost flooding the bedroom carpet. Breakfast was extra, 11 Euros, and was a combination of cooked (bacon, eggs) and continenetal with cereal fruit and yoghurt.
Nice, shiny and new
I stayed in this hotel in late May 05. All the building work was over and the place was really shiny and new. They have created a really different hotel, not to everyone's taste I should imagine, but the rooms we had were fabulous and the bar and relaxing areas downstairs were really good.
I visited this hotel before, in Nov 04, probably just as they started the re-fit and thought the same as others - building site! But I can report that they've sorted it all out.
The new rooms are smart, beds are good, bathrooms are beautiful (sliding doors might not be to every couple's taste!), and everything is new.
I'd recommend it to others now.
Dirty, crowded, snobby, and under construction
This was our second stay at Hotel De La Paix, and our last. The hotel is being renovated with a new street presence. We were relegated to one of the wings that had not been updated and it was very poor. The bed was terrible and the level of cleanliness did not inspire confidence. I am still itching after sleeping there. The staff were not very helpful, you had to really pull answers to each question from them. Yes the location is good, but there are lots of hotels in the same area. Le Continental looks good!
Had a three night stay at the end of April, driving from UK. Yes, the place was still being decorated but not to our inconvenience. Our room looked over a typical French roofscape and you could see the top of the cathedral. We could hear its bells, pleasantly and not obtrusively. The hotel's a bit impersonal but the staff were were helpful, spoke excellent English and the service was more than adequate.
Despite its proximity to the centre of Reims, we were extremely disappointed with this hotel. Perhaps we were particularly unlucky however, we found our double room to be small, dark and generally uninviting. In addition, after check-in at the newly completed reception area, we discovered that the rest of the hotel appeared to be still undergoing refurbishment with a lot of building clutter (old furniture and furnishings) visibly scattered around on the first floor common area. This is in contrast to the hotel's own website which indicated the hotel was under renovation until September 2004. We found the hotel itself to be lacking in any atmosphere or character and (having paid EUR 99 for the night) overpriced.
After spending 4 nights in a Luxury Hotel in Paris, 2 friends and I hoped a train and headed for Reims. We rented a car and approached the Hotel de la Paix (Paix means Peace in French).
Nice comfortable room and ideally located as it's right in the centre of Reims.
Couldn't get in the hotel carpark but there's a multi-storey across the road which the hotel gives a discount for using.
Would definately stay here again.
I have stayed at this hotel on 4 occasions and have been impressed each time. Rooms are large especially if you opt for the family ones, which have great bathrooms. It is right in the centre of Reims and has it's own underground car park. The restaurent attached to the hotel is fine and reasonably priced. Continental buffet breakfast is also OK.
The hotel is right in the centre of Reims and very convenient. The rooms were larger than average and comfortable. The breakfast room was a little gloomy but is a great seafood restaurant in the evening. We were there in February and very disapointed all the champagne houses were closed, both in town and in the countryside. I would recommend this hotel as value for money.
