... Breathtaking, the view is spectacular. I was a bit nervous letting Em go to the top by herself but she wanted to tick that off her list to do in Paris.We just made a meeting spot back out of the tower.A cruise along the Seinne, was next on our To Do List, a nice relaxing cruise as my legs were still hurting from yesterdayand it was also a lovely way to also see the cities attractions. The detailing on the bridges is amazing. ...
... needed to have a small English Tudor village built so she could really unwind. All of these things within the palace grounds and not at all cramped in. I feel we've walked our legs off today, yet again. Yes I know walking is not my forte, and guess what? After six weeks away it still isn't. Planning our last full day in Paris tomorrow. And then the long haul home. Signing off for now, the blog masters fill in. ...
... le snail, which covered in a pesto based sauce was delicious we explored the west of montmarte which comes alive on a sunday unlike the rest of paris we headed home for bed with a 3:30 am ahead of us we will need our shut eye!
We both found Paris confronting intially however once this was passed ee began to slip into the french way of life, loving late starts ,fresh fresh market food, and beautiful buildings , Paris was great for the time we were here for.
... ham inside, although that was probably also laced with pure butter, which is probably why it was also so damn good! I had to buy one last salted caramel macaron for the road, and it was a bit sad when the shopkeeper said "a bientot" - see you tomorrow again - as by this time she knew my order, and I had to explain we were off to Paris today and this was in fact the last macaron for me from Patisserie Bigot. We drove the 25 minutes ...
... her grand children staying with her for this week. They are very cute but I don't think they are used to non-French speaking people, so I think they find me a little odd. I mean, I do understand what they're saying, but I can be a bit slow. So I hung-out with them and watch Mary Poppins in French :) the other day I also watched the Full Monty in French. It's really different to hear the different voice and language dubbed over. Tuesday 29 July 2013: Still have a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Arvor Saint Georges Paris
Good value for families
travelled to paris with family of 7, had 2 rooms, good value for paris and excellent location , was a comfortable walk to Monmatre/Sacre coeur and to Opera and Grand magasins.Metro was 1 mins walk away for further trips, very helpful and friendly staff who were happy to put up with our broken French and speak to us in English. rooms good size and clean, would be happy to go back again.
If travelling as couple would prefer somewhere more upmarket but on budget with family was excellent value, and restaurants suitable for families were nearby and a short taxi ride from Roissy bus drop off at Opera, ( could have walked if not with children), definitely would strongly recommend it to travelers on budget and /or with families
We stayed three nights at the Arvor. It's a very small hotel with only 31 rooms. The size of our room was ok and the room was very clean. It seems that the rooms were refurbished recently. Only the floor seems to be very old, because it squeaks. :-) The room had no air conditioning.
We booked a week-long stay and not all things went smoothly. We were not pleased with the room allocation as we ended up in a room right beside the breakfast, lounge and lobby area. It was noisy until all hours of the night due to guests leaving or returning to the hotel. And, we had to put up with noise associated with kitchen staff setting up for breakfast at 3 or 4 am. We were not offered a switch of rooms even when others became vacant. The night staff however was very nice and most sympathetic although the manager was rather non-customer focued.
Was in Paris on business. In an email they told me that they were a 10 minute walk for Gar Du Nord. Actually it was about a 30 minute walk (or a 10 minute cab ride). Since my bags were on wheels it was a nice walk. But as I found out, the people here at the hotel are nice but somtimes things are lost in the translation between English and French.
Loved the Arvor
We are just back from a 3 night visit to Paris and the Hotel Arvor exceeded our expectations!! We were impressed with all the postings and thankfully decided to include it in our travels. Our family (2 adults/2 teenagers) loved the very clean rooms, quiet nights and breakfast in the courtyard. With teenagers who like to eat... the Shoppi (grocery store) down the street was a real bonus! We also found the hotel wonderfully convienient to the metro. We bought a 3 day metro pass (and a 3 day museum pass) and had no problem finding our way around the city. For the price this hotel is a real gem...and if we are lucky enough to return to Paris, we would definetly book at the Arvor again. Enjoy!
I have just returned from Paris, having stayed at the Hotel Arvor Saint Georges from May 20-27, 2005.
This small hotel is truly one of the best buys in Paris, or any other major city for that matter. The staff is the most incredibly welcoming staff I have ever had in a small hotel. Their attention to your needs and their sincere wish that your stay is a pleasant one are obvious. The breakfast is a good start, with fresh juice, tea, coffee, cereal, and breads. The rooms are really quite spacious for Europe and thoughtfully decorated. The baths (that have shower curtains....a plus for France) are immaculate and bright. I stayed in Room 505 which was in the back of the hotel and had dormer windows overlooking the rooftops of Paris. The room was spotless and the beds fantastic. The hotel is an oasis of calm in heart of the city. It is down the hill from the Moulin Rouge and steps away from the Opera and the Galleries Lafayette and Printemps. It is a reasonable walk to the Louvre, etc. and convenient to the Gare St. Lazare, for trains leaving to the Normandy coast. There is also free internet access in the lobby, a real plus in this city where it is harder than most to get on the internet. This hotel is an incredible value and I highly recommend it to anybody wanting a great hotel and a great value.
We stayed with family and friends at the Arvor and had a wonderful time: the rooms were comfortable with really good beds and super clean. Some of us had rooms to the back and we had a room to the front; both were very quiet, since the Arvor is located on a side street. The breakfast consisted of coffee/tea, croissants, fresh, warm rolls, yoghurt, preserves, fresh fruit and orange juice. In addition, there were newspapers (yes, also in English) and complimentary coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms. We were delighted to find BBC as well as CNN on the TV. Booking is really easy, since the very friendly and helpful reception staff speak English and promptly faxed confirmation. We also found it handy to have a safe in our room. The Arvor is conveniently located near a good selection of restaurants. We followed the owner's recommendations and had great food. It's in easy walking distance to all major attractions, although some of us occasionally took the nearby metro and bus. I realize this review sounds glowing, but we really have nothing negative to say. We would always book at the Arvor again.
To introduce ourselves: We are a couple from Canada, who are quite fussy when it comes to hotel accommodations anywhere, and thus we often stay in fairly luxurious hotels and inns, to be on the safe side. When planning our trip to Paris (which included another three couples) we had to be certain to find a good place to stay. The Arvor came highly recommended by our travel agent, and so we thought we'd give it a try. We stayed a week at the Arvor with several friends in October, and our visit has left us with such positive feelings about the hotel that we felt compelled to write a review. The hotel is located on a quiet side street, yet only steps away from metro and busses, which will take you virtually anywhere in Paris. Montmartre, Opera, good restaurants, and shops are all within easy walking distance. The rooms are lovely, with a clean and fresh decor. The continental breakfast is always fresh and ample, and the hotel supplies complimentary English speaking newspapers. The staff is super friendly, and the English speaking owner, Olivier, will go out of his way to make your stay in Paris special and enjoyable. The hotel feels like a small boutique hotel with all the personal attention you could desire. We consider the Arvor excellent value, and would not think of staying in any other hotel in Paris. We've recommended it to all our friends. Our only concern:with this review our "hidden" gem will be hidden no more. Bon voyage !!!
Well cared for
Stayed at the Hotel Arvor in Paris for 4 nights. It is located on a quiet side street right in the thick of paris. Small hotel run beautifully. Clean as can be, excellent people working there, very helpful and courteous. Our room was on the top floor, bathroom had an opening skylight...charming. Lovely stay, highly recommend.
