Chateau Malmaison & Arch de Triomphe

... where she died from a throat infection. I think she was only 50 or thereabouts. She and Napoleon were divorced so she got the house and 5 million a year until she died! Apparently he divorced her because she couldn’t have children (she had 2 with her previous husband who was guillotined). She was also quite a flirt and I think when he went off to battle she used to hold parties etc.

Michael and Kyria were waiting outside for us and after getting a drink ...

Hop on, hop off Paris

A travel blog entry by naomiheagney


Today we bought tickets for both the hop on hop off bus tour and the hop on hop off boat along the Seine. There was no blue sky today so the photos are not fabulous. It was cold up top on the hop on hop off bus, but at least it didn't rain,otherwise quite mild weather. We travelled a couple of loops on the bus - past the Pantheon and Luxembourg gardens and through more fascinating streets. We stopped off in the area known as Le Marais which ...

Falling in love at first sight- With Paris!

A travel blog entry by dawn.


... asked another bus driver and HE didn't know! Eh, I just decided to head toward the Seine, maybe I would find an answer- well, I did. The tour buses stopped there for Notre Dame as an attraction. Brilliant, I would ride around on the open top and get to see Paris, since it was a day pass, one could jump on/off wherever. The bus ride was awesome! Paris is absolutely stunning! I absolutely fell in love at first sight! And now I know exactly what areas ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Citadines Suites Louvre Paris

    Extremely central.


    I had stayed in the Citadines Monmartre a few years ago and liked the aparthotel idea but was not keen on the badly lit side street that the Monmartre one is on. My 9year old daughter and I had our first trip away together and we loved every minute! The hotel was easy to find from the metro station and is served by various buses and the river bus-the Batobus can be picked up from the river from about 10 in the morning. We walked to the Effiel Tower (I would not advise it!) as it seemed to not be a long way away........we were exhausted and my daughter really didn't want to walk back so we got the Batobus two day hopper pass and used it to travel up the river the following day. It is a lovely way to see places and think 'Ooo lets go for a wander this looks nice'. The hotel was clean and had good security. When we went they were renovating the building next door, which meant that they had sandblasting machines going all day! As soon as I realised our room faced onto this I went and asked for us to be swapped. The reception staff were very understanding and moved us straight away. They have a luggage room, so we had been able to off load our bags earlier and explore whilst our room was prepared. Up the Rue de Richelieu heading towards the national library on the left you will find a great Italian restaurant opposite a home style shop, I forget its name but it was wonderful, very reasonable and catered well for children. If you head up that road you arrive up by the opera house where you have a huge array of restaurants and bars. DON'T queue at the Lourve pyramid to get in. We stumbled across the Lourve carosel underground shopping mall where we purchased tickets from the touch screen automatic machines and went in the advance purchase ticket door to get straight it! It felt very good to walk past everyone else waiting patiently! I cannot stress just how central this aparthotel is. It is a bit noisy as it is a city centre but don't let it put you off it didn't stop us sleeping after a long day sight seeing. BOOK NOW!

    Excellent for families


    The location is five star- minutes from the Louvre and Tuileries Gardens and next to the Palais Royal. I booked this after reading the recommendation of other trip advisor users and I was very pleased with our choice. I stayed in a studio apartment with my six year old daughter and husband for four nights in July. The apartment had a sofa bed and additional single bed so was a little cramped for sleeping but this was not really a problem. It was clean and in good order with a good bathroom, well-arranged kitchen and air conditioning. As recommended by another user, I requested a balcony at the time of booking which was a perfect spot for early morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. These apartments are really excellent for families. There are many child friendly places nearby. The gardens of the Palais Royal next door are lovely with sculptures that children can play on. In July and August there is a fair in the grounds of the Tuileries a few minutes walk away which we visited every night. My daughter also played with a sailboat on the pond in the Tuileries for almost an hour, running around happily alongside French children and other nationalities. We made good use of the Batobus which runs up and down the Seine and is a pleasant alternative to the Metro. You can hop on and off it and it stops, amongst other places, at the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame.

    We loved our visit to Paris


    My wife and I just returned from eight days at the Citadines- Louvre. We were with two of our teenage children, ages 13 and 14.

    The only place to stay


    This is the perfect place to make your base for an extended stay in Paris. My husband and I needed an apartment for us and for my parents for 5 days in Paris. We wanted to be central so we chose the Citadines Louvre. It is the greatest location - we could walk to most of the main sights - the Louvre and D'Orsay museums, Palais Royal gardens, Tuileries gardens, excellent shopping and wonderful bistros.

    Great Place to Stay


    The Citadines Paris Le Louvre is a wonderful place to stay. The one bedroom apartments are very roomy. After spending a week in a Munich hotel room, this was a treat. Large front room with a comfy pull-out sofa sleeper for our 12 year old daughter, a TV, and stereo. Although the kitchen is small, it has all the amenities for warming a croissant and coffee in the morning, to chilling a nice Chardonnay with a "home cooked meal" if you want to stay in.

    Great location


    Paris was in the 80s on the day that we arrived. Unfortunately, we were given a double, instead of twin room. Had to go back down to the lobby and ask to be moved, which was accomplished, but this staff member was more than a bit chilly to us for the remainder of our week long stay.

    Family vacation


    Excellent safe location and very comfortable room for a family (kids 10 and 11). Enjoyed large local markets for great take out food (affordable) and end of the day snacks. Free internet accesss in lobby was an unexpected bonus. Would definitely stay there again. When I emailed the hotel with questions before our vacation they never replied, however no problem with the reservation upon arrival.

    Exceeded out expectations


    We stayed here for four nights in March. The hotel exceeded my expectations in almost every respect. We have three children ages 6, 8 and 9 so this was a great alternative to having to book 2 rooms for 5 people. The rooms were large clean and modern. While the street outside was noisey, the window panes are about a half an inch thick. You can hear some minimal street noise, but it is a small price to pay for such a prime location. The kitchen was small but functional. It was fully equipped with plates, silverware, pots, pans, canopeners, microwave oven etc. Upon our arrival we were happy to see that they had already put an extra rollaway bed in our room. All three beds were large and comfortable. Our room was a standard one bedroom apartment. We had three balconies with french doors leading to each one. To my surprise, the entire hotel was wired with FREE wireless internet. The signal was somewhat weak in our room. I occaisionally took my laptop downstairs to get online to email photos to friends. If you don't bring a computer, they have one downstairs that is for guest use. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it was free. While they don't do maid service every day, if you need towels, toilet paper etc. just ask at the desk. There's someone there 24 hours a day and they are all very friendly, helpful and generally proficient in English.

    Spacious and Prime location


    We stayed in a 1-bedroom suite at the Citadines Louvre in July. It was extremely spacious and clean for a Parisian hotel. The bathroom was huge, with its own set of doors opening up to a small terrace. The kitchen was fully equipped with utensils, coffeemaker, oven, and fridge. The only downside was the lack of view as our suite faced the shaft. In terms of location, it's right at the intersection of the Avenue de l'Opera, Rue de Rivoli, and Rue Faubourg St Honore. The Comedie Francaise (closed due to renovations when we visited) is right next door. The Luxembourg Gardens is right behind the hotel. The Louvre is one block away. Due to its central location, it's easy to get around without taking the metro or a taxi. We will definitely recommend this hotel to families, since it will allow everyone more breathing room and flexibility in terms of eating in or dining out.

    Great for families


    We stayed at the Citadines Louvre in October for a week. We originally reserved an apartment, but it was not available, so we were given two studios for the same price. This turned out to be a good idea as our two teenage kids had their own room and bath! An added bonus was free high speed internet access, a most convenient to keep in touch with friends back home. We dined in a few times, purchasing groceries at the supermarket, about 2 blocks away. Each morning we would purchase fresh baked goods at the bakery up the block. In the evenings, we would walk the two short blocks to the Louvre and have a dessert at the food court. The location is perfect for attractions and access to the Metro.
