Travel Blogs from Paris
Paris just rules- especially if you've always wanted to go there. I would totally move there one day too- but that's a different story altogether. My tips for Paris are pretty simple:
Research- where do you want to go and when?
Learn- French words- don't count on anyone pandering to you- it's rude to expect this.
Respect- their …
We held our memorial meeting this morning in our apartment. We listened to an exhortation by Bro. Harry Tenant. It was quite a good one. I like his talks. A good point to remember was Christ's attitude towards Judas. Bro. Harry was saying that any grievance or ill feeling that we hold against anyone should fade into insignificance when we consider how Christ washed every single one of his disciples feet, even Judas, he didn’t show any discrimination. He still ...
... of novel in Paris but it's pretty high so a trip to the top gives you a really good view of Paris.
Then we stopped in at a Starbucks to regroup. The rain was persisting down and I needed wifi. Starbucks has been my one consistent through this trip. Except for Adam of course!!!! Anyway once the rain slowed we headed off for the catacombs. That was funny!!!! The queue was enormous and therefore horrendous. We stood in line for a bit but then called it. Came back to ...
... because of it!--with padlocks of various sizes and dimensions, all signed and locked with their keys tossed into the Seine as declarations of love made within sight of the Louvre and the Institut de France. We hadn't brought a lock, obviously, but for the very (un)reasonable price of €5, we managed to buy one. We wrote a little message and found a spot to lock it, on the west side of the bridge exactly in the middle. It was, for ...
... up getting in at 3am. There were accidents, overbookings and a suicide. When I finally got to the Paris train station at 3, they had made a decision to pay for everyone to get a cab ride home. Very nice, but also meant that hundreds of people lined up for the cabs. After an hour, I finally got a cab which I had to split with other people. I was the last to be dropped off, and at 4:40am, I checked into my hostel. The hostel ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cheverny Paris
Me and my partner stayed in this hotel for three nights in sept 05.Before going and reading the reviews on this site I really was dreading the prospect of staying here.
The three positives about the hotel were location, firm beds, and the hotel clerk, Katarina. Katarina was very cordial and extremely knowledgeable, and she willingly helped us with French pronunciations. Otherwise, it was a disaster.
Worst hotel ever - Avoid
Please, please avoid!
This hotel was a complete disaster:
* doorknob fell off when we arrived
* hardly anything available for breakfast
* food handling unhygenic
* rooms dirty - fag burns and cracks in tiling etc (we also woke up with insect bites)
* personal item went missing in room
* far away from anything in Paris (doesnt mention that the road to Arc de Triumph is steep!)
* No decent food nearby
* Staff unhelpful
and wait for it:
* we saw a RAT in our room
Worst of all, hotel refuses to accept any of these points or make any compensation
I'd give this hotel 1 and 1/2 stars, if that were an option. The plumbing worked and the lights turned on.
We stayed for 4 nights in May. It was very clean and the windows are double glazed so we couldnt hear the outside noise. It can be noisy within the hotel though as the walls are not all that thick... but this really wasn't a problem. The bathroom was clean - it has a bath and shower. The airconditioner worked well - which was good as it was a really hot weekend for May!
So So hotel
Everything is unbelievable small in this tiny hotel for those living in U.S.
It's rated 3 star on expedia, I guess it's European standard.
Staff's atitude is ok depending on who you met.
Nice thing is that room is clean.
And it's very close to metro.
For me, it's first time to be paris, don't know other hotels, I guess it would be same.
Ideal for a short break.
Either the other reviews of this hotel are by a competitor or it's a different hotel. My wife, 2 kids and myself had a lovely time in this small but friendly, clean and well situated hotel. As it's in a cul-de-sac it's very quiet at night, is right by a metro station and only a 10 minute walk from L'Arc de Triumph. Rooms were not huge but after a full day in Paris you want to sleep, not do acrobatics.
Buffet breakfast was great for stocking up on coffee and carbohydrates so as to face the day's sightseeing. For the money we paid this was good value.
Don't even consider it....
Definitely the worst hotel I've ever stayed in.
The bed linen was flithy, there was damp all over the walls, someone's dirty clothes on the floor, tiles falling off in the bathroom, a shower in the bath but nothing to attach it to the wall and no shower curtain, no plug so couldn't have a bath, had to sit in the bath and shower.
I was in tears within 10 minutes of being in this hotel, its nasty and the staff are very unco-operative. You've been warned !
