... access to the upper part of the river.
We met back at the apartment and headed off for a drink nearby on Lea's insistence while she organised tea for our last night. Mat had been out fishing for the afternoon, unsuccessfully, but I wasn't keen on carp for dinner anyway! He actually wasn't fishing to eat, just for sport :)
Our last meal was lovely, Lea had gone to some effort to cook a Duck Salad for entre and Confit Duck for ...
... had cabins for six people to fit in. Lucky nobody was with us having to share a cabin. Sleeping on the train was not comfy. In the cabins we had we had fold out beds from the train seats. It came to be 3 decks high. Amber and I sat at the top deck and Dad and Mum had the middle ones. There was a ladder to get down from the deck and the middle deck if your small. We had a final stop at Milan on that train. From there we got on a another train to Rome.
... to find the kids park as we'd seen that on the map. Given the proximity to our house, it will be a place Carissa should be bringing the kids to quite often. It wasn't too hard to find and we let the kids loose.
It was about 5:00 by the time we were ready to head back and we took a different route home in the hopes of running into shops we'd seen the previous day. Beautiful streets and buildings everywhere, and trees on the main boulevards. We ...
This morning we were up at 7am again and out the door and checked out of the Adagio at 8.30. We walked with our cases to Bir-Hakiem metro station and went to Gare de Lyon, where we caught the 10.23 TVG to Dijon, the train had a top speed of 297 km per hour. The ride took 1 1/2 hours when we changed trains to chalon. We were fascinated by the toilet on the chalon train as it looked like a normal ...
... was a couple things which it made it worthwhile sending back separately like champagne and special glasses. We filled the rest of the 10kg box with an assortment of other things that wouldn't fit in our cases and thought $120 in total to send back to Australia wasn't too bad given how reliable the Swiss International Post system was. Afterwards we did a practice pack with the remaining items and weighed it all out so that we don't go over our weight limit on any ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De Latour Maubourg Paris
Simply the best
A great hotel with the warmest of welcome, and great location!
We just returned from a wonderful 4 day stay and Latour Maubourg. Not only was it ideally located on a quiet street near Napolean's tomb, but we appreciated and enjoyed the Marie and Victor Orsenne's wonderful hospitality and assistance with sightseeing pans.
My husband and I stayed at Latour Maubourg for five nights in early April and were very happy with the experience. We dealt mostly with Victor - he was very pleasant without being cloying. He was happy to make restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood. Our room was on the second level and overlooked the street. It was quite large and comfortable, but it was also very noisy when we opened the windows. We're from Manhattan and used to street noise so it wasn't a problem, but it could certainly disturb non-city dwellers. The location was perfect and we really enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts each morning. The cafe next door was also perfect. Well within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, and the D'Orsay.
Better late than never I suppose -
Good location, great concierge, very small room on inner courtyard with no view
The owners of this hotel are great at helping with hard to come by reservations in Paris- dinner, shows, etc. Our room was small and had a window that opened onto another wall of the hotel with no view to the outside. Rates are cash only. For the use of a credit card, our room rate increased by 50%. Quite a shock! Take cash and ask for a room with a view in advance or your memories may not be pleasant.
We have returned to Paris twice since and have chosen to stay elsewhere.
Since they have free WLan it's my first address in Paris...
A Rip Off
My husband and I stayed here in September 2003. The toilet leaked, there were tiles missing from the bathroom, peeling paint, the room was dark and not attractive. The bed sagged quiite a bit. The owner is cold as ice with an arrogant attitude. The hotel is over the Metro stop--bring a pair of earplugs. The trains run from approximately 6.30am until well after midnight. It is extremly loud. A very disappointing experience. Would definitely NEVER stay here again nor reccommend it. Have stayed in two star hotels for half the price which were much nicer.
The Latour-Maubourg Hotel offers air condition in its Deluxe Rooms, which are only in the first floor and the suite... Please check the website for more details.
Charming Hotel Only in the Wintertime!
A charming small hotel. Location is ideal - metro station is across street. Unfortunately this hotel does not have air conditioning, which is a necessity in Paris in the summer. We baked in room on the top floor.
Wonderful small hotel
I stayed in this lovely hotel in Nov.,2002 for my 50th birthday celebration. The owners live on the premises, speak several languages and are extremely helpful and friendly. The location is perfect near the Rue Cler market area and a very short walk to the Eiffel tower. The view from my room was of the golden dome of the Hotel Invalides. The Metro station is across the street, very handy on the rainy days. The rooms were very large by Paris standards. You can't go wrong with this hotel.
