Toda officially marks 1 month since I have been in Europe and 1 month to go! When I mention I still have a month to go to many hostelers, they are really surprised. To me, I feel like it's only been a week! For breakfast here, it is quite good but I feel like I eat Nutella for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That is how much Europeans love Nutella. The breakfast spread is really good and light. I wasn't able to meet with any of my friends so I set off for the Louvre before the Asian ...
... to mention that we had no idea what we would be cooking, we all made the decision at the market & then the chef purchased what we needed. Back to cooking ~ starting with the dessert, because it had to cool ~ lemon curd.
Next we worked on the appetizer ~ Fresh scallops with sautéed leeks. I had to pinch myself when I thought about what I was doing & where I was? Something I always dreamed of, but never ...
... I think they all enjoyed this boat trip and the tour was very well explained. First we went towards the Eiffel Tower itself, then in the other direction to circle Notre Dame and the islands I the centre of the Seine. The boat dropped us at the same dock and we climbed back to the bus for what, for some, was the most iconic part of the trip, the journey to the top of the Eiffel Tower! I was really pleased because everyone, even those students with vertigo got to the top! They should ...
... to the Arc de Triumph. Martin went up to an observation platform at the top of the Arc de Triumph. There are spectacular views of Paris. 12 major roads meet at the Arc which is the biggest traffic roundabout in the world. No traffic lights !!. We then walked down the Champs Elyse to the Grand Palace which is large ...
... one another…and took in the sights and smells of this amazing country. Everything that was expected and hoped for before the trip began.
I couldn’t be prouder of them.
So let the countdown begin. This is being written from terminal C81 at Charles de Gaulle Airport. We got through all the checkpoints, although some shuffling of luggage was needed to get under the 30kg weight limit but we got through… and no one lost their passport. We can ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ampere Hotel Paris
Perfect in Paris
My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon while in Paris. We were very impressed. The staff and service were excellent. The rooms were very clean and smelled wonderful! The room and bathroom had a contemporary decor. We were glad we stayed here for part of our honeymoon. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
I chose this hotel entirely due to the recommendations on this site, for a 3 night stay in Paris with my girlfriend. Booked it through RatesToGo at about 105 euros a night (plus commission to website).
We stayed here for three nights in January 2005. Got a superb deal via lastminute (first time I've actually found something really useful from then - great being able to cross-check with Tripadvisor!) for my wife, myself and our four-year-old. Friendly service, spotless pleasant rooms and very nice breakfast.
Paris' Best Kept Secret
My boyfriend and I found this hotel after spending way too many hours looking for an affordable yet classy spot in Paris for a 5 day visit. We found Hotel Ampere through tripadvisor and then got a good deal through lastminute. IT was fabulous. The hotel itself is beautiful, clean and quiet. The room was tiny (of course), but the bathroom was new and spotless, service was impeccable and the staff were very helpful. The neighborhood was cute and very convenient. Free breakfast every morning comes in handy. I don't think we could have gotten a better deal. I will definitely make it a point to stay at this hotel every time I vistit Paris!
My husband and I visited Paris and stayed at this Hotel in December, we were overly impressed with the quality and comfort of the rooms. The staff were wonderful and helpful and we managed to get parking which was a great relief to us. Sadly we had to leave a day early but will go back there again. Not to mention the excellent breakfast and room service. It's a Lovely little gem.
The hotel was great first class location. The staff where friendly and very helpful. The hotel was very posh and extremely clean. Know one can go wrong if your planning to stay here.
Amazing Location & Excellent Standard
We stayed at Hotel Ampere for 3 nights over New Year 2005. The hotel is in a fantastic location, just off the main tourist beat (& therefore the fast food & tourist shops) but still only 10 minute walk from Arc De Triomphe. Nearby Metro station makes it easy to get to all sights very easily. There are plenty of fantastic French restaurants nearby. The hotel is a good 4 star with friendly staff, the buffet breakfast is also excellent. For a hotel in central Paris, the price is excellent. We will definately stay here again.
Excellent - Will go back
Stayed here three nights in November 2004. Excellent location near a typical french roundabout with loads of restaurants and bars on it. The Metro & RER is pretty much right on the doorstep.
The hotel itself is excellent, nice size rooms and friendly staff. The buffet breakfast is worth going down to also. Nice little bar area for pre-dinner drinks.
There is an excellent restaurant a few doors down from the hotel which has a fantastic set menu. Do go there if you have a chance.. it is the first restaurant you come to when heading to the metro from the hotel.
I will go back..!
The Hotel Ampere was an excellent choice for us for our Honeymoon. The staff was helpful, courteous and very polite! Especially Pierre who worked at the reception desk. The rooms were nice and included an interactive television which made it easy to plug into a DSL connection and to receive messages right in our room from the front desk. The food was delicious and the Piano Bar had a great ambiance which we enjoyed while having drinks. "Merci" to the entire staff for making our stay a pleasant one.
The Hotel Ampere was the "pick up" point for our "Go Barging" trip.
