... and convenient lunch. Never thought I'd be thankful to find a Starbucks, but there you go.
Sunshine appeared and we continued along till we reached the Opera Garnier, oh, what a sight! It is an imposing grand opera house at the end of the Place de l'Opera. Inside it is nearly all marble and incredibly opulent. We were fortunate to catch a glimpse of a rehearsal for an upcoming performance but understandably not allowed in the theatre itself. The other areas ...
Sunday is a very quiet day in Paris as most shops are closed and really only the galleries and museums are open. These are often very crowded on Sunday. One near us is the Musée Maillol which is currently holding a Murano Glass exhibition. The history of the museum is quite interesting as it was established by Dina Vierny who was the model for sculptor Aristide Maillol. The exhibition was a variety of modern and museum pieces of glass, some dating back to the 15th ...
We were up very early to try and avoid the traffic expected in Lyon (Tour de France going through) and Paris (Bastille Day). We left the hotel at 7:15 and had about 350 Km's to drive. We had a priority booking to climb the Eiffel Tower at 12:30 and we planned to get there early so we didn't miss our spot. On the way we texted, Face booked and rang Pat for his birthday. One day he must be in Paris for Bastille Day but check out what ...
... back to our hotel to rest before our flight to Croatia tomorrow morning. We rested for a few hours in our hotel room and then got ready to go out for dinner. We want down the street to a little cafe. Mum had duck, tim had cheese pasta which was too cheesy! And I had a club sandwich. It had too much mayo. We got to sleep at ...
... the largest flea markets in the world. Lucky we only have small backpacks as otherwise I could have been tempted to buy lots of interesting junk! We then headed into central Paris again where it was a lot quieter and far more enjoyable than on Saturday. We walked along the river, bought a few souvenirs, visited the Notre Dame, then navigated our way through miles ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Dechampaigne Paris
We will definitely return here!!!
The location is ideal--close to the Seine, Louvre, Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, metro, great restaurants and shopping. The staff were very friendly and helpful (we were so impressed that we asked them to please let us know when they visit San Francisco, as it would be delightful to treat them to lunch here) . The rooms were very clean and quiet, with high ceilings and comfortable beds. The room sizes vary from small to large suites, and are priced accordingly. We have stayed at more glamorus hotels, but never any that we were more satisfied with!!
Excellent hotel with in walking distance of old Paris. In addition a main metro station that connect to all of Paris is less than 3 minutes walking distance. The hotel staff was very polite and helpful! In addition the rooms were quite nice for a 3 star hotel! In reality it beats most other 3 star hotel rooms in Paris! High recommend this hotel! Look forward to stay at this hotel again.
during the past 8 year I visited paris 2 times a year and most of the visits I stayed at the "de Champain's ". The stays where always ok but never extraordinary. the rooms ar very small but clean. (never accept the single rooms with ..1 at the end) (101/201 etc). these rooms have no daylight and are very very small. The staff is friendly and helpfull, the breakfast is ok.
For an inexpensive hotel w/ a terrific location, this is the choice. My friend and I (two 30 something women) stayed here for our week in Paris. It was a coin toss between this hotel and one somewhere on the other Bank, and we are VERY GLAD we picked this one! As others have said, the location was key, it's one block away from the Chatelet metro which has 4 trains, it's walking distance to the Louve, the River Seine, and the Pompadou, and tons of other places. Great shopping in the area, about 3-4 French dept. stores are 2 blocks away.And while being near a lot of thing, it's kind of in its own alleyway--off a treet that's off a street. It is safe, but VERY QUIET at night. So you will sleep quite well.Rooms are small and a bit dark, the bathrooms are OK but do not expect a luxurious bathtub. High ceilings and windows.
Put our review in the "positive" column
My husband and I just returned from Paris and I wanted to weigh in on our stay at the hotel. We stayed there three nights and had a great experience. The location is terrific if you want to walk to the Louvre or Notre Dame. The metro stop is a just around the corner. And there's a grocery store (we tote bottled waters around with us) right across the street. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful at the front desk and in the breakfast room. We didn't hear the noise the other reviewers did. And yes, the wallpaper and bedspread was all red and white toile in our room, it was small, the shower was tiny, but we were in Paris! We didn't go there to spend time in our room. Go and enjoy!
After reading several of reviews for the Grand Hotel de Champagne, I felt compelled to add another. We stayed in the hotel in March and our group took up three rooms. Since our group had two room changes, we got to know 5 rooms in total. I would suggest, if you want extra sleeping space, always request 2 twin beds, rather than a double bed. Two twins can be pushed together and in total will make a king-sized bed.
Quaint $ charming w/ a terrific location!
My husband and I shared one room, our children another. While not large, they were clean, well-appointed and just plain charming! The breakfast room was really nice with it's timbered old walls. The location, however, was the best. 5 minutes from a major metro stop where numerous lines converged and a short walk to Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle. Frankly, I was appalled to see the 2 negative reviews....it made me wonder if we had all stayed in the same place!
This hotel gets one mark basically for it's location. If you stay here you are close to Notre Dame, The Louvre lots of department stores and a metro station that can get you to the airport in 30 minutes.The staff were indifferent to my wife and I, no matter how friendly we tried to be, they just didn't take any interest. when we arrived, we were basically told, "Here's your key, your room is up there somewhere!"We stayed three nights and we hardly slept due to an uncomfortable bed and the constant noise outside our window. Grand Hotel De Champagne is not on a main street, but the street just behind one and that means you are kept awake by deliveries made to the rear of the stores. My wife and I were shattered and this took the sparkle off our first and possibly last visit to Paris.The decor of the rooms also leaves a lot to be desired. The wallpaper was white with some pink squiggles on it, this matched the bed, pillows and the curtains! it was everywhere.The hotel is old and the floors are creaky and the breakfast is not worth the extra 7 euros each that you need to pay. If you want to enjoy Paris, I'm sure there are better Hotels than this.
A $10,000 theft
We stayed on the last night of our honeymoon after driving back from Monaco. I (stupidly) left my suitcase in the backseat of our rental car. Between 2am when we returned to the hotel and 7am when we left, someone bashed in the window of our car and stole our things, the car was parked directly in front of the hotel main door. The clerk said 'oh, I must have fallen asleep'. However, it seemed to us that he knew about it all along.
Ideal location in 1st Arrond., one block from Seine, around the corner from the RER and 5 min. walk to Notre Dame, Louvre, Les Halles, the Marais. 16th Cent. building with lovingly decorated rooms, no two alike. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms typically small but very clean and well kept. No view to speak of but excellent mattress, hot water and water pressure. A bit dear considering the lack of amenities and size of rooms, but the location is unbeatable!
