... the trip that was to take 45mins. What a shock, we were packed in like sardines, and nearly missed getting on the train completely as it is what is called a short train, and we had to scurry down the platform to get to the carriages. When the trains are due to leave they just close the doors, and bad luck if not all in your party are on board. Well we, along with the multitudes reached Versailles. Thank heavens we had our tickets and didn't need to line up for them. All ...
... to 9:30.
We showered and dressed and opted for the hotels buffet. This was the most full breakfast we have had here. It was good. We started with French press coffee. Each of us had our own French press. They had hot and cold foods, interesting fruits including passion fruit and kiwi, and for the first time Steve tried a plain croissant and realized how different it tastes from pain au chocolate. He had ...
... had at the hostel, but after an entire glass of beer was accidentally poured onto my lap, I thought it time to head to bed. Though apparently not to sleep, as Rapsy and I spent the next couple hours awake poeting and d&ming. There may have even been some drunken white girl tears. Oh wine, you are a weird and wonderful mistress.
Time to rest. We've another bus day ahead of us tomorrow! Apparently we get to do group introductions. What fun!
... When we got back to the hotel, Allie, who had also felt under the weather, and I let jet lag and stomach aches get the best of us and took at least a 4 hour nap. Thanks to the lack of communication that comes with depending on spotty wifi to text/call, when we woke up everyone had left the hotel. Instead of being upset, we decided to take matters into our own hands. She, her Paris roommate Sarah, and I went on an adventure of our own. With brave mindsets and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Jardin le Brea Paris
Lovely Atmosphere and Location
Based on Trip Advisor reviews and a 3 nights for the price of 2 promotion my husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in late August and were not disappointed. Clean, small rooms with big windows and tasteful decor situated 2 minutes from the subway and a 10 minute walk from the beautiful Luxemburg Gardens. The grocery, butcher shop, bakery and laundromat are all only a minute away, right on the Rue le Brea and then there are plenty of restaurants close by. The area has a lovely atmosphere in which we felt very safe and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would happily go back here on my next trip to Paris.
Great place, great location, highly recommended
I booked this place on the strength of the reviews on this site, so hoped it would be good - and was not disappointed. Rooms are small, but amongst the cleanest I have stayed in. There are plenty of lounges in the reception area and dotel staff were friendly and helpful. Location is superb - 2 mins walk from Vavin metro station and close to some great restaurants - expensive and cheap, located in a safe area as well. Breakfast was also high quality. Highly recommended, and I would stay here again without hesitation.
Charming and clean
I researched about 50-100 Paris hotels and decided on this one. The staff is excellent, friendly. We bought some cheese to bring back home and they kept it in the fridge for us. Our room is spotless, great sound barriers. Location is excellent, never felt uncomfortable walking around in the evenings. I would go back to this hotel again.
What a lovely bit of luck brought us to this gem of a small hotel. We randomly selected a place based on closeness to someone we wanted to visit and couldn't have been happier. Great shops and restaurants around (love the huitres across the street), walk to the jardin, have an Amorino gelato, or just sit at the window and watch the people come and go at the boucherie. Staff were fabulous and tolerated my feeble attempts at francaise. The rooms are tiny, but hey it's Paris, who's going to hang out in the room?
Stay here in paris
my girlfriend and i decided to stay here for 3 nights this summer and loved it. we took a taxi from the train station, 10 euro and a nice ride right by the eifel and the louvre, this place was awesome, it was in a much more laid back area, right next to the metro stop vavin. we walked in the door, mentioned my reservation, and then were handed a key. this is a more laid back hotel more like a home than a holiday in. i would stay here again and again+
A wonderful 25th wedding Anniversary.
We spent 5 lovely days and nights at this charming hotel surrounded by bars, restaurants and the metro, to take us so easily around all of Paris, only 3 minutes from the hotel.The rooms, although a little on the small side were very comfortable and attractively decorated. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and breakfast in the chic, vaulted cellar room was thoroughly enjoyed by us both every morning. We shall certainly return for another visit in the not too distant future.
We stayed at le Brea for 6 nights in October 2003, on our way back from Florence. I have decided that this hotel, along with the Bretonnerie, are my favorite in Paris. We will return to this one in March.We stayed in one of the superior rooms that cost a little more so I cannot speak for the standard rooms.However, the bed was large and very comfortable, the room looked out over the courtyard which has been glassed over to form the lobby area and winter garden. Very serene and elegant. The decor was nice, the rooms and hotel meticulously clean, the bathroom (with separate WC) spotless and newly renovated. In our room, however, you must be able to use a shower in a tub that lacks a shower curtain.
Here's a spot to enjoy Paris from
We stayed for 2 weeks during the summer heat wave of '03 and we loved this hotel. The decor was tres french, the desk was unobtrusive, everything was always clean. The location is superb - near 3 metro lines, the 4 Montparnasse cafes, le jardin du luxembourg, a movie theater, several restaurants, a laundromat... It was deightful and rue Brea is a wonderful neighborhood. Don't miss the ice cream at Amorino's on rue Vavin as you walk to the park; the meringue is out of this world.
Charming hotel, great location
We stayed at the Hotel Le Brea in July 2003 and found it a perfect, small hotel for our stay in Paris. The staff was helpful and the hotel was in a quiet nieghborhood within steps of a metro station and a short walk away from the luxemborg gardens. Our room were small, but beatifully decorated, with a spacious bathroom and windows opening out on to the street. We recommend going somewhere else for breakfast, though, theirs was nothing special.
Nice small hotel
We stayed a week there last summer and it was a nice small hotel. Nice location near Jardin luxembourg (metro or cab was easy to catch). The hotel is small and quiet (ask for courtyard room) and we had the larger room which is pretty nice. Bathroom was cleaned and bright. Do not expect any service though since all they served is breakfast (for about Euro 8) and you are on your own, no room service, etc.. But it is very close to the neighborhood's cafe, little stores/groceries, pharmacy, boutiques and small neighborhood restaurants. It is also located next door to a laundromat. So it is convenient, and especailly for people who travel across europe like us and have laundry to wash and loves to experience the real parisian life. A true unique experience.
