TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Balzac Paris
This is what you should see in the book/dictionary right at BOUTIQUE HOTEL.
Centrally located (close to the Arch of Triumph and Champs Elysees), well trained staff (everybody knows English and how to ask you if you need anything or if they can be of any assistance), rooms based on just three or four colours themes/schemes.
It's the perfect thing for a posh incentive group, or if you really want the Parisian romantic experience with your future wife.
You pay a little more but you get so much more.
Be elegant! Balzac is.

... trip. Lots of tasty sounding options – very cheap 3 courses – but sadly the food was pretty average. Onion soup to start (over cheesed and underseasoned); boeuf bourguignon (not bad) and tarte aux pommes (tasty but sad quality of pastry and a bit skimpy of the filling).
Le Bon Marche (gourmet food hall) – AMAZING. Sculpted sugar cubes anyone? Very tasty looking almond croissant purchased for Mitch, and very tasty croissant 'ordinaire’ ...
Paris was so much better than I ever expected, I have always been so down on France as a country and my tour through southern France, while good, was hardly the highlight of my trip so far. However, despite the hoards of tourists, outrageous prices and French attitude we both had the most incredible time eating fantastic food and being delighted by the at once familiar, and yet totally unfamiliar sights. It's amazing how photos and video can so often fail to capture the presence and depth ...
Starting at the Louvre and ending at the Eiffel Tower, we hit all the classic sights of Paris. It was fun seeing all of the places I always thought I'd only see in pictures! I also really liked the atmosphere of Paris...and the cute French boys, of ...
... that the bus took a very enjoyable route and we got to see parts of Paris that we would otherwise had missed out on. Still the clock was ticking and we were still not at the palace. But once the bus arrived we would be there. Well not quite. The bus took us to another station and what do you do at a train station? Get on a train. So we caught the next train and finally got to Versailles – well almost! Then we had about a 10 minute walk and ...
