An early rise this morning meant tired faces met us at the airport, but the excitement was palpable. Papers were flying too and fro as 41 eager students checked-in their bags. Many were way under but a few strained the scales as they were weighed. Soon it was time for goodbyes and we passed through security to the departure lounge. Now we had all …
... and Scots parachuted in during WWII in 1942. Pretty amazing to be there and think back to that happening. Omaha Beach was further west of Dieppe, but that took a little more time to tour and we only had that day. I am sure Doug would like to come back to tour that. Back at Notre Dame de Bondeville, a suburb of Rouen, Evelyne made us a traditional French dinner of Raclette, from the area of France she is from, annecy near the Swiss border. We melted cheese in ...

So after watching a documentary on the French Revolution and having a long afternoon nap, we retired to a night in including Camembert cheese on crackers, snow peas and three punnets of berries for dinner and watching The Da Vinci Code before resting in preparation for our journey out into the Champagne region ...
... around here don't have many tourists, but very busy with commuters, kids, scooters, bikes. And lined by lots of cafés. Pretty easy to walk with the bags - much easier than taking the Metro. Our luggage (packed for 6 weeks touring) doesn't like stairs!
Our apartment is in a lovely little pedestrian street, Rue Cadet, full of eating places and market stalls. I particularly like ...

We tried firstly a white wine, then a rose and then a red. It was interesting to know and out ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Nouvel Opera Paris
I have to say that it was the worst hotel I have ever been to. I know I booked there because it was cheap but I still pretended something a little bit better from a 2-star hotel. I stayed there 7 nights - the room was too small and the window that we had was facing a very small yard. But the worst thing is the staff, they are really ignorant and arrogant. We had various incidents with the staff during this week and here you will find two of them.
Ok hotel. Cheap, clean rooms, tv, clean towels and bed linen.
Good breakfast but not incluted in room rate.
Staff not over friendly a bit ignorant.
But overall an ok hotel.
Beautiful Parisian Hideaway
A beautiful hotel. Excellent location, fantastic decor and wonderfully friendly staff. Don't believe any of the other reviews. For the price, you will struggle to do any better in Paris. The area is colourful and exotic and the locals are extremely friendly. We went for my friend Nick's stag and frankly, it was perfect.
Good place to stay if you're going to be out on the town all day. Rooms are fairly small in size; no air conditioning, but two windows give more than adequate ventilation. Room 603 only has one channel, but the other rooms have more, not that TV was ever really watched by our group who was staying there.
Not wonderful, but OK!
POSITIVE - good central location, nearest Metro station is Ledru Rollin, only one stop away from Bastille. NEGATIVE - slight musty smell from the very tiny en suite shower, wash hand basin was not clean to my standard on arrival, general odour of stale cigarettes, would benefit from some redecoration. OVERALL - our very small, basic double room was on the 4th floor at the front of the hotel, possibly typical for 2 stars, but as this was our first visit to Paris therefore unable to provide comparison. Not wonderful, but OK as a base to see the sights.
We did not experience any impolite staff, but our lack of understanding of the language kept communication to the very minimum.
I stayed in this hotel for five days during my senior year of college, along with four other classmates. STA found the hotel for us and made it sound A LOT nicer than it actually was. The location was okay, with lots of restaurants nearby and a metro stop a few blocks away. However, it wasn't a very clean or friendly part of Paris- there were bums sleeping outside the hotel every night! The hotel staff was not very friendly, the elevators could only hold about two people at a time, and the rooms smelled like urine. The "double" room I had contained two twin beds pushed together, and the bedding was stained and foul-smelling. The towels were clean though and replaced daily. The free breakfast was nice too (even though it was just bread and cheese!). I would not recommend staying here alone, as it is not the best area and the Metro is a few blocks away. My friends and I were acosted one night on our walk back to the hotel by some drunk french men. I would not want to make that walk alone! So go for this hotel if you're on a budget, not staying too long, plan on sightseeing a lot, and are with a group of friends.
Handy and Convenient, if nohting else
I've stayed on a couple of occasions and found it to be useful for its convenience relating to the metro - the Bastille station takes you just about everywhere without too many changes. The restaurants in the area are a bonus too, and just having to walk back to the room after a meal and all the wine you have to drink is so handy...I'll be going back in January with friends, I certainly wouldn't go there on my own
IMPOLITE BORED RECEPTIONISTS, TERRIBLE TOILETS
paris is so romantic this period , and people there are so nic and polite , all of them except those 3 receptionists in this hotel, where is a typical 2 (?) stars hotel and they are so bored with theis job. If i Had the coise i would stay more than the first night, but I made reservation paing all the amount
GOODS-great location, quiet and close to two metro stations BADS-Same check-in & check-out time makes guests wait in the lobby; had to request and wait for housekeeping; room was never vacuumed until after checkout; was charged twice for an extra bed and never got the credit back.
The Grand Hotel Nouvel Opera is a 2 star hotel centrally located near Place de la Bastille. It is quite clean but the hotel staff is terrible: very rude answers and not at all collaborative. A chinese man at the reception is almost blind and deaf and it has blamed me for not telling him my room number in the right way (i tried in French, English and with fingers)!! I paid 50 Euros per room/night for a double; if you pay more then you'd better choose a different one. VERY IMPORTANT: there's NO AIR CONDITIONING, even if some websites report an air conditioning sign.
