This was a very professionally run and clean hotel. First looks were not misleading and our room was amongst one of the best yet. It was large with two beds and tea / coffee making facilities. Free Wi-Fi. Outside our window there is a clean looking canal and a drawbridge roadway, which makes interesting viewing. The breakfast's have been cooked and are very nice. The rooms have been cleaned daily and the reception staff has been most helpful when one makes inquiries. I would definitely stay again. We are a group of 4 and taxi most places. 5 euro's a piece including tip, gets us into Central Paris in 15 minutes. Metro is not too far away. A really nice Hotel and place to stay.

Eventually we found a metro train station and jumped on for the last 4-5 stations to our hotel at La Defense - the end of the line.
A shower, a brief planning meeting (let's talk over breakfast at a civilised 8am) and that was it for the night, the TDF and our Polka Dot ...
... so we decided to suck it up and figure out the Metro. Should have done that sooner! I was worried because everyone warned us about pickpockets, but it seemed just like the 'L' to me. It was still pretty early so we decided to cram one more thing in, the Musée d'Orsay. Really cool building, really weird layout, really awesome art. Huge collection of impressionist art and the highlight - VanGogh's Starry Night. Our legs and feet are sore, but tomorrow's another ...
One the pastry tour we stopped at 6 of the best chocolate & pastry shops in Paris & 1 local wine store to sample desert wines. This is the life!! I have been dreaming of the pastries in Paris & finally got to taste some of the master pastry chef's work! The most notable shop we went to was Pierre Herme. Starting as an apprentice at 14 years old - he has built a reputation as one of the world's best macaron makers ...
