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.

... to stumble across a restaurant which is well known -Robert et Louise. Basically the menu is different types of meat with either potatoes or salad. But the meat is cooked on an open fire, to your liking. From rib eye to kidneys and blood sausages. I did have some blood sausage and lamb chops. Great little place and communal tables so we got chatting to a couple from South ...
... for a spot in a café but once your were seated, you could sit there for as long as you so desired. In a similar way, we casually lazed about while we determined what we would do for the rest of the afternoon and it was nice not having to feel rushed.

Then we walked over to ...
... Louis 16 left. We were only given 20 mins to see the gardens, which was totally unrealistic, so we headed to the gift shop to buy a book which shows them properly. I did manage to get a couple of photos from the inside which shows a very small part. That afternoon Kevin went for a walk to take some more architectural photos, but I squibbed and stayed at the hotel, and then went to Starbucks ...
... Louvre is that Rubens and the Dutch Masters have become a bit of a leitmotif on our Western European tour. We spent quite a bit of time with them in the Louvre, and I look forward to seeing where else Dennis manages to find them in the coming month.
We had a baguette-and-brie picnic in the Jardin des Tuileries, then walked down the Champs-Elysees while I sang the song "Aux Champs-Elysees" the whole way. Dennis detested me a little bit for that, I ...
We started our day with a walking your at 11am. It met at st. Michel which was about a 15 minute walk from our hostel. It was very interesting and helpful- especially with identifying thieves in the city. It helped to work out where everything was in the city and learn some interesting facts. We went to the new bridge which is the oldest bridge in Paris and the your ended at the bottom of the champ de élysées. From there it was only a short walk ...
