Aller Anfang ist schwer....
so kommt es mir momentan vor.
Angefangen hat meine, zu dem Zeitpunkt noch unsere, Reise in Paris. Andreas hat mich nach Paris begleitet, wo wir drei wunderschoene Tage verbracht haben. Wunderschoen war Paris, die Stadt, die Atmsophaere. Nicht so schoen war die Kaelte - wow. So ein Staedtetag bei -10 Grad ist …
... ring (warned about pickpockets). Walked down champs élysées. Paris very beautiful 477,000 trees planted in CBD. Weather wet and windy and then cleared becoming quite warm. Went to welcome reception with fellow passengers. Quite a diverse lot from all over Aust. Then off to bed as we are both ...
... and Gregory wasn't as straight forward. I started by trying to buy a metro ticket. After having trouble making my purchase I asked someone for help. They said that I was using the wrong machine and that it would be easier if they just gave me a ticket. This really impressed me and I gave her the Euro ad thirty cents I had in my pocket. The train was simple enough but when I got to Gregory's apartment there wasn't an actual door, more like a ...
... 14 centuries until it was transformed into a prison. Marie Antoinette was imprisoned there during the Reign of Terror in around 1793. Now it forms part of the Palais de Justice. Next door is the St Chapelle, with the most beautiful stained glass windows. It was built between 1242 and 1248 in accordance with the wishes of King Louis IX.
Looking for a cafe/patisserie we walked back over the Seine to rue de Rivoli but sadly ...
... too bad, about 350 steps or so to level one and about 674 from the first to the second. The elevator was packed to the brim each time which looked hot and horrible. We took it pretty slow with a rest and water at the first level before clambering up to the second level (which ends up being about halfway up) to take in the amazing views. The tower is on the bend in the Seine river and quite a way out of the city, but being so tall you get a great view back across town to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du Pantheon Paris
Absolutely charming-and clean
Absolutely charming hotel is a great value. Stayed there for eight nights in December, 2003. I have never done better in Paris, even at bigger, more expensive hotels. Well-kept, clean, friendly, thoughtful.
Bathroom sink was very large, with room for travel items, while maintaining an old-fashioned feel. I stayed in room 33, a corner room with view, two french windows in the bedroom and a third in the bathroom. Just as other reviewers said, lots of restaurants nearby...Coq Agile cozy and good.
If you have an iota of romance, stay here.Choose a room facing the square and, if you're not already in love with somone else, -with Paris, you will be. A kind, incredibly competent staff is ready to help. (Ah, but then we adore the French - especially Parisians.)This place is wonderful.
Stayed at The Hotel du Pantheon in the middle of November 2003, and we loved every minute of our stay. The rooms are small, but more space than most hotels in this price range. Tha bathroom clean white and spacious, wooden beams in the ceiling, TV hidden in a cupboard, good matress. Really a great place to rest after having explored lovely Paris. Lots of great restaurants nearby. Try Braserrie Balzar in Rue d'Ecoles, a very parisien brasserie experience even though it is mentioned in most guidebooks. Had a lovely meal at Le Petit Prince just down from Pantheon, and had lovely and cheap country cooking at The Polidor not far away. The hotel is in the herat of everything Left Bank. Though the Place de Contrescarpe just round the corner is pictureque, the cafees are extremely overpriced.The concierges where cool but helpful if you asked.Booked through the hotel's own website and got a good price (125 euro a double). This was a bargain compared to what have you have to fork out for much worse accomadation other pleces in Paris.
This is an above-average 3 star hotel. The rooms are small by American standards, however this is to be expected in Paris. This hotel is in the most desirable district in Paris, in a great location. Very clean and very quiet, but still close to evertyhing. Staff are friendly, helpful, and are fluent in English. We used the nearby Luxembourg station to go just about anywhere on the RER train, connecting to the metro. Excellent restaurants are all around - try the Le Coq'Agile. It is 1 block south on rue Descartes. 2 of us had a 3-course meal with wine for 30 euro. The decor is campy, but the food is good and service is friendly.
We stayed at the charming Hotel du Pantheon seven days during the third week of July 2003. Our location, Room #43, had a lovely view of the Pantheon and Sorbonne buildings. Along with a front double window, we had two windows facing a side street which made for an airy, light atmosphere. The air conditioning worked wonderfully, the twin beds were hardish and very comfortable, and the bathroom lovely. We had not stayed at the Hotel du Pantheon before, however, were very pleased with the accommodation and would return to the hotel for another stay when again in Paris. The Left Bank hotel location we found central and quiet. We discovered a marvelous local cafe/restaurant right around the corner at 5, Rue Soufflot, Le Comptoir du Pantheon. As we sat almost daily eating delicious plats du jour and drinking cafe au lait, to our right we viewed the Pantheon and to our left the Eiffel Tower. Both hotel and restaurant are highly recommended.
Booked a triple rm for 2 adults and one 8 year old for 13 nights.
VERY nice views, VERY nice rooms, VERY friendly, VERY good location, VERY romantic. No traffic, you can sleep in peace, no need for earplugs.Our room (#31) was very clean, nicely decorated, beautiful view to the Pantheon, but rather small. Good for weekend stay, just as we did.Breakfast was good, not excellent (10 euros). The breakfast room was rather small. On Sunday morning we had to line up to be seated.
Otherwise no complaints for breakfast.For 125,- per night this was a steal.You can access the Hotel easily by subway from the CDG airport (Luxembourg station). Nice restaurants also in the area.
Just got back from an excellent honeymoon in Paris. We stayed at the Hotel du Pantheon and can definitely recommend it. If you are looking for a French style "hotel du charme" this is a great choice. The location in the Latin quarter with a breathtaking view of the the Pantheon is very convienent. While the rooms are small by American standards (typical for Europe), they are charmingly decorated, very clean and well maintained. Bathroom/shower were good. The staff were friendly and professional. We felt well treated with the concierge making restaurant reservations for us as well as making some good recommendations.Overall, would strongly recommend the Hotel du Pantheon.
This was my first visit to Paris. it was tough to chose hotels off the web -- they all claimed to be great and in great locations. I was worried that we would get a "bad" hotel room in a hotel in a "bad" location. All my worries were groundless. My first reaction on seeing the hotel and its location right on the square where the Pantheon is, was that it looked exactly liked I'd pictured a Paris hotel would look like -- a clean hotel in an old "Parisian" looking building in a neighborhood of narrow side streets. The hotel room was very quiet, nice room on the fourth floor (slightly small by US Standards and $200/night), very clean, excellent sized bathroo and separate toilet room, and well decorated. A very helpful and friendly staff. I'd definitely go back.The location was superb. A 3 minute walk to the metro; 15 minute walk to NotreDame through twisty little and picturesque side streets, and a 3 minute walk to the Place du Contrescarpe -- my favorite part of this location. On or near the Place du Contrescarpe, a place where 5 narrow and picturesque little side streets all come together into a circular roundabout, there are more bistros and restaurants than you could visit in a single visit -- ranging from expensive to cheap. I sat at the Champs Elysee and watched the people go by. I felt like I was on Rodeo drive-- very tourist trap and way too noisy. I sat at the Place du Contrescarpe and watched people and I felt like I was in the real Paris.
Great Romantic Hotel
Great 3* hotel. Our room had a great view of the Pantheon and was extremely quiet, even though it faced the street. Nicely decorated with a decent size bathroom. The location can't be beat. The check in desk people were very friendly and spoke excellent English, which was helpful since we do not speak French. We will definitely stay there again.
