A week in Paris - Day 3 - Arc de Triomphe

The day began with breakfast picked up at Boulangerie St. Antoine (29 rue Saint Antoine). I had a wonderful chocolate eclair and bought some savory sandwich that vaguely reminded me of a pizza on a flattened baguette. We enjoyed this wonderful mean sitting on a bench in the Place des Vosges before going to see the former home of my favorite author …

Our second day in Paris began with breakfast at a cute boulangeries-pātisseries place, Hure, Createur de Plaisir (1 rue d'Arcole). I had a wonderful croissant and a macaroon. Don't deny, if you were in Paris, you'd have a macaroon for breakfast too. Having never had one before, I asked the girl to pick out her favorite for me. Cotton Candy. It was …

After getting stuck in Chicago thanks to a 2.5 hour delay that caused me to miss my connecting flight to Germany, I managed to get onto a flight straight into Charles de Gualle airport. Julie and I originally planned on meeting up in Frankfort, Germany, but United Airlines had other plans for me. No castles, no Medieval marketplace, no train ride …

A week in Paris - Day 4 - The Louvre

Breakfast on the run, so glad that there are little snack shops at the Metro with wonderful croissants. They are not nearly as good as what can be gotten at a pastry shop, but still good. I'm glad we picked up breakfast on the way, as the line to enter the Louvre from the Metro and under the pyramid was already lengthy, 30 minutes before opening. I …

Day 2 Paris

A travel blog entry by fionabalfe


... in the country any where in France. The main lake is quite long and narrow so you feel like you are walking along a wild river bank. Very quiet and peaceful with just a few Parisiennes jogging, pushing pushers or relaxing. We walked most of the way home along Avenue Foch which runs from the Bois de Boulogne to the Arc de Triompe. It is lined with what could be described as a long park on either side, dotted with ...

    Castex, charming and a great value


    We stayed there last June for 5 days. They upgraded our room to the 2 level suite for nothing ! It was so charming and comfortable.The front desk help is outstanding on arranging sights, train info, airport, etc etc. Its a great location near the bastille, you can walk to the seine.

    And buy the breakfast, it is very good. We are going back to the Castex, very reasonable cost.

    Nice people

    Outstanding hotel


    Everything about this hotel pleased my wife and I. Recently renovated - the rooms are good sized for Paris, the bathroom is large, and the housekeeping is impeccable. Maid kept putting our accessories in neat little rows. AC was a help during heat wave. Very quiet room, good firm bed, nicely appointed, cabel TV. Staff helpful and friendly. breakfast extensive for 8 euros. Newspapers in the lobby - those kinds of details. Close to Bastille metro.

    Loved It!


    Stayed at the Castex in summer 2002 and found the facilities to be excellent.

    Clean rooms,excellent location and the price was right!Can't think of anything else necessary for a good holiday hotel.

    Staff was friendly and quite helpful too- icing on the cake.

    Newly renovated, Great Value, Room a bit small.


    We stayed 4 nights at this 3-star, centrally-located hotel in April, 2003. The place was closed for renovations and re-opened just a week or two before we arrived. Even though the rooms are a bit small by American standards, it was the nicest place we stayed in in France and the owners paid careful attention to details to make our stay most pleasant. The neighborhood is good with many places to eat and a nearby metro station (Bastille) for sightseeing.With the recent renovations (meaning clean, modern rooms), excellent staff, and great location the hotel is a great choice. We recommend it.Hotel Website (in English): ...

    Don't like Parisians, but like the Castex


    So I went to Paris thinking all the stereotypes must be wrong - might bump into a grumpy Parisian or an unhelpful waiter - but most people will be nice. I was wrong. Most Parisians are grumpy even when you attempt to speak the language and boy did we try. The owners of the Castex were the exception, my wife and I found them to be friendly and helpful. They seemed to be trying to make up for the rest of the population. The rooms at the Castex are clean, but offer no frills. For the price who cares - because the great location in the Marais and only a few steps away from a metro makes this an ideal place to stay. Great rates too! Go to Paris, see the sights, smile at the grumpy people, and if you are on a budget stay at the Castex.

    Great staff, clean, comfortable, no frills


    We visited the Hotel in April-May 2001. The managers of Castix, Hector, and Herve did what ever they could to help us and make our time in Paris very nice.
