We learned from a friend that tomorrow is the day of the Paris Marathon, with the route passing near the Louvre, so we may have to alter our plans to visit the museum because of the anticipated ...

The day had arrived – Its Paris time. After spending a good 3hrs at breaky we demolished the buffet! It was the best buffet we had ever seen so we had to take one for the team and make the most of it. Off to ...
First day in Paris! Headed straight to
the catacombs. Steph and I had never been and it was quite surreal
seeing so many thousands of skulls and bones. Kind of brings you face
to face with your own mortality and insignificance. After that we
went to a stop near Notre Dame and walked around a bit. Then went to
the Eiffel tower, got some average crepes and finally ...

Unfortunately, they cost almost exactly the amount of Euros we'd brought with us to dinner, so we had to change our plans from taking a taxi to taking the Metro back to the hotel. It gave us more time to enjoy the City ...

I’m certain it was because growing up, my mom had this print hanging in the living room. When I left the D’Orsay, I crossed the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Ducs De Bourgogne Paris
Just a few bullet points to discount for any excitement from the trip:
In preparation for our trip to Paris we booked this hotel nearly 4 weeks in advance, via Best Western's own web-site. As part of the deal they were offering we had to pay for the room in advance (the only option on their site).
We have just returned from a four night stay at the Ducs De Bourgogne and were pleasantly surprised at the high standards of this hotel. We booked a late deal over the Internet and got a very cheap deal to this hotel, leading us to assume that it may be rather average....how wrong we were!
I stayed at this hotel two times. I like the location, very convenient to most tourist places. Good value for the money. On my first stay, I thought that the room was quite noisy because I could hear people in the next room, but on the second trip I did not notice any noise. It is possible that I had just loud travelers in the room next to mine on the first trip.
A charming place to stay!
Stayed for 3 nights in a small, but very nice room on the top floor. It was quite hot for late May and so the air-conditioning was just perfect. Also the minibar fridge is very usefull. There´s a supermaket close by - so need to buy anything from the minibar. The bathroom was quite small, but very nice and clean. Looks like it had been renovated only a short while ago.
Front desk staff and maid service is excellent. The location is very convenient, 5-10 min walk to Les Halles metro station, Louvre and Centre Pompidou.
We just returned from a blitz visit to Paris and stayed at Ducs de Bourgogne for exactly 24 hrs.
THEFT UNDER A WATCHFUL EYE (THE MANAGER)
I stayed at the Hotel in September. As we were leaving the hotel in which we stayed a week and we ask the hotel manager if we could leave our luggage and camera. She said do not worry I will not take my eyes off it we came back from their restaurant downstairs for only 5 min. our camera case was gone and 20 films were missing. Nothing left from our 3 week trip to Europe
You would think she should know better to lock up our luggage in a special room until our taxi came but she didn't. We suffer the consequences. I would think twice before staying there. Only apology we got was I'm sorry. I would not recommend anybody staying there with valuable you might have them stolen from your room or the lobby or under the WATCHFUL EYE THE MANAGER.
Excellent loation with good price
I stayed in this hotel for a few days. Excellent location, all tourist attractions are 5 minutes away by walk. Subway station Les Halles is almost cross the street. For those who love shopping, Le Samaritaine-big department store is very close too. My room was very clean but pretty small by American standards. I think next time I'll ask for a double room. The staff is very helpful and speak relatively good English.
Stayed in a small double room -Aug. and Sept. '02- on the top floor facing the street. We weren't bothered by the noise as we travel with a noise machine which is worth its weight! The room was small, the floors creaked a bit and the furniture rather old but on the charming side. There was a mini-bar refrig. with the usual inflated prices and it was barely cold. The bathroom was very nice, clean and roomy since when they renovated it they took out the "useless" bidet, which is always in my way. We had no water on the floor from the shower because they have put in a swinging clear plastic panel which works well. There is only one small elevator which broke one day but was fixed in a few hours. The maids do tend to waylay it on the floor where they're working but you would too if you had to carry all the linens and trash up and down. The daytime manager [I should have learned her name] was lovely and one of the waitresses at breakfast in the basement was sweet. The small buffet was o.k. for $11 but you had to remind them to refill the ham. The location is very convenient.
great central location near shopping, restaurants/cafes, the louvre as well as other sigths, and several metro stops. it's a very busy street and can get quite noisy at times if you have the windows open. also the walls are quite thin so you can hear people in the other rooms (my only real major complaint). we had a hard time sleeping one night due to noise other guests were making. the staff was just absolutely wonderful!! very helpful and friendly. the breakfast buffet was excellent as well. the rooms were pretty small as was the lift. but i think that is par for paris. everything was very clean. be careful taking a shower.....still not sure why most of europe insists on NOT using shower curtains....it's such a inexpensive item that would save a lot of clean up. the staff made up for any shortcomings the hotel itself had.
