Today was the day set aside to go to Chateau de Versailles. Narelle had been longing for this and had pre booked prior to leaving home which was a bonus. After breakfast we headed to the Metro railway station. After a little confusion we worked out how to use the machine to buy a ticket to get us to Versailles. It required us to catch a train to a central station and change to a country type train for the remainder of the journey. We bother went armed with reading ...
Even though I woke up earlier, Steve did not have as good a night. So we still started slowly. We changed our seats on the flight home tomorrow to Economy Plus. We had done that on the way to Paris and the extra room was important for being able to sleep. However my iPad wasn't letting me change it so I needed to call United. I didn't wake Steve until 9:00 and by the time I changed the seats it ...
... The moment was absolutely breathtaking and we took about a million pictures to commemorate it. What you can't see in any of the photos is how horribly nauseous I'd felt just 10 minutes before. There's nothing like a world famous monument to cure motion sickness! Next to us was a food stand where I discovered what would be my lunch every single day in Paris, a tomato-mozzarella sandwich on the most amazing fresh bread I had ever tasted. This also helped the ...
... through no choice of their own, but simply by virtue of their birth, were taken out, loaded in the cart and rolled through the jeering throng to La Place de la Revolution and executed. Back to the hotel, I decided to stay put for the evening while Karen headed to Sacre Coeur. My rash had come back with a vengeance...that is 3 cities now!...and my elbow needed some TLC. Tomorrow is going to be a long, but hopefully wonderful day trip to Mont St. ...
... but the breakfast was OK. Then my dad and I were faced by a minor, MAGOR setback! WE BECAME COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY LOST!!! We trotted and wandered around the streets of Paris for about 2 hours, until finally finding our little hotel. The next task was to find lunch and have another look for sim cards, also have a bit of a shop. Sam ( my brother ) had a bad blister, so therefore Mum, Dad and I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Baume Paris
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend in February and found the hotel a delight. The staff were very courteous and very helpful and efficient in the booking by email. Our room was small but clean and newly decorated and we had a good breakfast as part of our rate. Overall I think it is great value. I would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again.
We have just returned from Paris, and I have to say that the Jardin de l'Odeon was perfect. First of all the staff were extremely helpful and kind. Even if you are used to travelling, it's good to have someone at the front desk who can help out a bit. The receptionists told us the easiest way to get to all the sights (nothing is very far away, Paris is quite a compact city, and the hotel is right in the centre) and booked our taxi so that we would be sure to get the airport on time on our last day. That sort of small detail can take a weight off your mind. Other comments has mentioned that the hotel was a bit basic. We didn't feel this. Of course there are more expensive hotels in the area, but we felt that we got what we paid for. And how many hotels offer free wireless internet access in the lobby? If location is important to you (we liked being able to walk everywhere) then this hotel would be good for you. If you like spending extra money on a huge room rather than on a nice meal out in Paris (which I think is silly), then you might need to think about checking out other options, but we were delighted with our stay and would recommend the hotel to others.
Seasoned Traveler Enjoyed Stay at Jardin De L'Odeon, Spring 2004
I was quite impressed with the friendliness, helpfulness, and general good nature of the staff at Jardin De L'Odeon. Will go above and beyond.
Room and Bath were typical small 3 star European version.
Location is absolutely wonderful! Many great restaurants close by.
Neiborhood safe. Very Quiet Place(accept the maid in the morning).
Great find, great value. Will stay there again.
I thank other Tripadvisor.com reviewers for helping me find this little gem in Paris.
Jardin de l'Odeon Excellent Value
My husband and I along with three friends just returned from a six-night stay at Jardin de l'Odeon and found it very comfortable and quiet, with a friendly staff and a great location. The Odeon Theatre is under-going renovation at the moment, so the view of the columned building featured in the hotel photos is absent for a time. Even so, this is one hotel to keep on your list. The rooms are comparable to the Abbaye St-Germain, but the lobby could use a little design work. Nice little garden at the back. Room 12 has a large terrace with wrought iron table and chairs. This hotel is convenient to the 58, 63 and 87 bus lines. Try the cafes "Les Editeurs" or "Le Danton" for breakfast and watch the world go by.
A Great Find in Paris!!
We chose this hotel as part of a travel package - absolutely wonderful!
Situated in a busy Paris neighborhood, but on a quiet street, our room overlooked the private garden terrace. Close to everything - walking distance to both Metro and RER stations, can easily walk to anything - Notre Dame, Louvre, Orsay. Hotel staff are all very nice, friendly, and speak English. Rooms are small, but stocked with amenities (in room safe, toiletries, blow dryer, mini-fridge/bar) and bathrooms are BIG as far as European standards go. If we ever visit Paris again, we will definitely be repeat visitors at this hotel!!
We stayed in November for 3 days. The staff is really friendly, the rooms are very modern and the location could not be better. Although it is located in a busy area, this hotel is situated in a quiet street.
Just make sure you ask for a double bed, our room had two twin beds and they did not have double beds available. On the other hand... our room had a private terrace where we had breakfast.
Chic French style in suberb location with reasonable rates
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It was a real delight. It's main advantage is the location, situated in a quiet street with a short walk from the Metro and RER trains from the airport. The surrounding streets have lots of small bars and cafes. You can easily walk to Notre Dame.The hotel itself is quite small but very tidy and stylish. The propritor and his wife were very helpful and spoke English. The rooms were very small but very clean and tidy, only a small critism was that it could have done with a shower over the bath.Great, will stay there again.
A Great Value
We were at Jardin de L'Odeon for 6 nights in October 2003 and had a wonderful stay. The hotel staff is friendly, the room was clean and nicely decorated (though very small but that's standard in France), and the location could not be better. We were no more than 15 minutes from anywhere in the city and the neighborhood of St. Germain was itself an attraction--many cafes, shops and things to do right around the corner. I would definitely go back and recommend it to others.
What kind of establishment is this?
I made a reservation to stay in November and have had a change of plans. I have requested a cancellation confirmation everyday for a week and have received nothing!!!
A bit too basic
If you have looked at the hotel's website and thought it would be a charming hotel, you would be wrong. The hotel is very basic and lacks character. On the other hand, for 125 euros per night, the bathrooms are newish and very clean, the beds are comfortable and the rooms, while on the small side are not as small as some Paris hotel rooms. If you do not plan to spend much time in the hotel, the location is great and the price is right. However, if you like your hotels to be comfortable, pay up a bit and go to the Relais St Germain.
