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.

... Pub and stopped in for a Moosehead, and saw the schedule for the Stanley Cup playoffs. The TV channel was Canadian too with a Home Hardware ad playing. Next we wandered up through the Latin quarter, near the Sorbonne, looking and watching and drinking it in. Decided it was time for supper so we stopped at a sweet sidewalk cafe that dated from 1791, the same year the first Harnish settled in Hubbards. It was very busy but a table opened up just as ...
After 16 hours of travel, 13 hours of which were spent flying with a screaming infant nearby, we arrived in Paris.
For our final few days, we decided that we would avoid all the museums and tourist sites, choosing instead to explore other interesting neighborhoods off the beaten track. Fortunately, mother nature was very cooperative and we hit a spell of sunny warm ...
... establishments in the city. Well, apart from the castle that sits on a prominent hill overlooking the town it is otherwise quite drab with little recommend it. Certainly no flash banks, they must all be very discrete and keep a very low profile. We drove up to the castle only to find that it isn't open to visitors, and even a good view of it is hard to obtain, only from the city below. It is still occupied by the Royal family. L had passed through here in the ...
