Today is Thursday, July 18th. We are planning to go to the Pompidou museum, then lunch at Pirouette and then walk through the Marais district. This evening we're meeting Guy Grundy from our office for cocktails and then we're off to Frenchie's. On the Metro yesterday, Bob saw a guy with a Sox hat on and immediately went to talk to him and said, "Ah …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Sers Paris
My daughter and I just returned from a 5 night stay at l'hotel de Sers. I chose the hotel after an exhaustive 3-week search. Although my daughter has been to Paris three times and has stayed in various parts of the city, this was my first venture, and I really wanted a comfortable, affordable, nicely located hotel in an area where we could comfortably walk, near a metro, and near a major shopping area.
We have just returned from 5 nights at the Hotel de Sers. This was our first trip to Paris & we wanted a nice hotel with a king bed, non smoking plus we had a balcony too. We did ask for the balcony & as they have only a few, we were lucky. Our room was booked through Continental Airlines and we also had a fabulous rate of 250E per night for this hotel and type of room and location. Our only problem which wasn't too bad was the lack of a shower curtain so water did go quite a distance but the towels were actually bath sheets so it was enough to cover after toweling off. The bedroom was certainly large enough and the bathroom almost as big as the bedroom and very beautifully appointed. I particularly liked the mini bar as I kept some pate & peach Lipton ice teas in there for my pick-me-up when we returned from a long day. They must be the French version of Snapple diet peach tea.
Excellent Hotel, Great Service and Location
From the time we arrived at De Sers we were pampered and attented to courteously.
Sophie at the Front Desk was polite, considerate and attentive to our needs. From early check in to late check out, tips on dining, sight-seeing and shopping, all our request were taken care of.
The ambience was romantic, the rooms were spacious, the bed comfortable and the service was great.
The only thing expensive was the laundry service and irons are not allowed in the rooms because they are considered a fire hazard in most european hotels.
We look forward to our next visit to Paris and our stay at the De Sers.
Cannot wait to go back!!!
Simply put this Hotel is wonderful. Modern, Elegant, Clean & quiet. Its location is perfect (right next door to the Four Seasons George V, which is almost 4 times the price) The rooms were spotless & beautifully decorated. The bathroom was excellent & very functional with some lovely quirky details. We took the deluxe room option so we were on the 5th floor with a balcony & a view of the Eiffel Tower.
The staff are soo courteous, especially Sophie on the front desk who was a great help to me prior to our stay.
Unfortunately we only got to stay one night but we will definitely be back. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. Its perfect.
Enjoyed the stay
The hotel was lovely and is recommended. My only complaints would be that the room was a bit small and we did experience one rude member of staff. Having said that the rest of the staff were excellent and service was extremely good. I wouldn't mark the hotel down on that one individual as the rest were clearly there to help and impress. The decor is impeccable and the rooms clean and spotless. The location is good for all the sights in Paris. It is worth shopping around for this hotel as I saved £100 after checking a few websites....
This well designed hotel needs more time to mature. There were problems with the room and the service. We had many small problems that added up to an unsatisfactory stay. The service is not consisent with the price and the rooms could be more functional.
Couldn't have asked for better!
After rerouting our trip from London due to the bombings, we ended up in Paris at L'Hotel de Sers which served as the foundation for an unforgettable trip of a lifetime for the 3 generations of us traveling together. The staff was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, helpful, and very well connected when it came to getting us into some fabulous restaurants for dinner. We all slept soundly in their beds - the room was spacious and quiet. Breakfast was excellent - lovely baskets of breads and pastries, yogurt, and fresh fruits. Again, we couldn't say enough about the service and attention everyone provided!
My wife and I just returned from a week in Paris and stayed at the Hotel de Sers. The staff, Gaeton, Francois, Sophie and Anne-Morgane could not have been more accomodating. They were wonderful with directions and were available to handle any requests we could think of. Their knowledge of Paris and their willingness to assist made the trip. The rooms are large by European standards, clean, well appointed. Fresh towels 2-3 times a day, turn down service every night and room service within 5 minutes if needed. We did not eat at the hotel and preferred to find small cafes and bakeries all over Paris. The hotel is quiet. It is contemporary and casually elegant. The colors are soothing and speak to the quiet, tranquil atmoshphere. The fitness center is limited but the steam and sauna rooms are excellent. Easy walk to the Metro. Several of the players in the French Open were staying there during our visit but we got the same level of attention(maybe greater) from the staff. The hotel was full when we stayed but it felt like we were the only guests there. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to be centrally located and well taken care of...and quiet. all the excitement you want is a short walk away but the hotel is a tranquil sanctuary maintained by friendly staff. They smiled and greeted us by name from check in on! I didn't hurt that everyday was sunny and beautiful!! Having traveled the world over, I found the L'Hotel de Sers a delight! Thanks Gaeton...you are great!
First of all, on making my reservation and then calling a week or so before our arrival with a couple of questions, the telephone manner of the person dealing with the call was excellent. Fluent english and very accommodating.
Loved Hotel de Sers
Just returned from a 4 day stay at this great boutique style hotel. Would definitely highly recommend staying here! Location is fabulous - right next to Hotel Georges V. Rooms were impecable and quite roomy for European standards. This hotel was totally revamped in June 2004. Staff was friendly and helpful but there could have been a few more of them!
