... we are going to be late. It's over half an hour walk to the tower & we only have 25 mins. Grant checks out, we leave our packs at the hotel and sprint down the road to musee orsay train station. There is a 9 min wait for the train after we get a ticket from the machine. We are going to miss the tour. Grant won't admit I was trying to hurry him up all morning he blames the breakfast lady. It's too late to get a taxi so we wait impatiently for the train as Grant reads the ...
... the attached video clip of her new release, "Raindrops keep falling on my head", which some of you may remember as the hit song recorded by B.J. Thomas in 1969 for the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". She wanted to sing it in French, so the language lessons she's been taking have finally started to pay dividends!
After the recording session, we grabbed our umbrellas and started walking south toward the Maison de Radio-France, ...
... a cheese plate is great especially in Paris -even managed to photo bom a wedding group! Finished the daylight hours at the chapel of St Chappelle with its stain glass windows. The Corfe's will remember this gorgeous little chapel from our last trip. Dinner was a real treat. Le Comptoir is a Michelin rated restaurant with people lining up all day and night to get a table- Courtney's were at ...

We soon finished our food and then headed home. The streets near our place were much less scary, as there was much more traffic. We stopped by a bakery on the way home and I had a huge brioche for 1.10 euros, which is probably the cheapest food item I have purchased so far. We then were home and prepared for our next day of travel. On to ...
We had a good breakfast of eggs and toasted baguette. A man in the breakfast room tried to talk to me for a while before he asked the all important question "Do you speak French". When I said no, he stopped talking to me. Oh well. I keep trying to say "thank you" and "yes" in Spanish instead of French. Who knew that my default language would be Spanish one day. I feel like my English skills are failing me more and more.

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.
