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'll love it! On our way to the top most point of Montmatre, Richelle showed us the famous vineyard and Lapin Agile cabaret club. Again, there is a rich history and story relating to this place.
We also,saw the house where a famous Parisian singer/dancer called Dalida lived. She is not so well known in Australia but is in France. Our tour finished at the Sacre Couer, the White colored bascillica, which gives a good view of Paris. We didn't climb the stairs to the ...
... hilarious, man do those ****** boys know how to run when the coppers arrive. One guy selling dodgy hand bags left about 6 of them scattered in the street. On Tuesday we made good progress through Paris, Hop on Hop off bus was great, especially on such a beaut day. We visited the National Opera House ( the one that the Phantom lived in). then we went to Eiffel Tower, walked ...
... on a volleyball trip for Nikki's high school team, I had snuck awa from the gym for a bit to catch a special exhibit of Henri Carter-Bresson photos there in Chicago.)
There was so much more we viewed at V and A, from jewel encrusted snuff boxes, to sculptures in the museum garden to the beautiful architecture of the V and A museum itself. But the definite standout for the day--at least for the ladies in the crowd-- was the Fashion Room. Nikki, Marlene, and I ...
... Sacré Coeur wanted to accompany me to dinner… I was quite adamant in my refusal. I went in search of the Metro because I didn’t want to get stuck out after dark. As it turns out, it’s almost 10:30 and not fully dark out, and this was 8:00. I ended up taking a right out of Sacre-Coeur and going out of my way to find the metro. All is well, though. Once I got in, I was able to put negotiate the kiosk and buy a single use ticket, ...

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 !
