... it with some more. Thrifty tip: throughout Europe you have to pay to use the bathroom. There is normally a turn gate at the entrance where you pop your money in and walk through (like the MCG when you scan your ticket). As females who either drink too much water at once, have bladders the size of a pea or a raging case of undiagnosed diabetes, continuing like this would result in us spending a months rent for just using the bathroom. This would not do. We had better things to spend ...

Disembarcation & Bullet Train to Paris

A travel blog entry by westolz


Breakfast at 8:00 & then back to our cabins to put luggage out in the hall by 9:00. We didn;t have to leave the ship until 10:20, but had to vacate the cabin by 9:00. Of course, back to the Lounge with cards to continue our Spades competition with the guys. We were able to visit with many of our new friends as they were leaving the ship which was fun. Jan & I finally prevailed and ...

The key(s) to enjoying Paris

... right at the top,of his tower! We then dropped back down to the bottom and returned to the Bus, aiming to hop off near the Louvre/Musée D'Orsay and wander. Was cool to see a few stalls along the banks of the Seine, and when we hopped off there were a few artists with some drawings and paintings that showed some real talent. Not sure how lucrative their businesses would be though. The principal reason for jumping off here was not to join more queues and see the Mona Lisa. ...

Day 4 in Paris - the Louvre and Paris by night

A travel blog entry by kletheby


On Monday morning I again set off along the Champs-Elysees in the direction of the Musee de l'Orangerie, just off the Place de la Condorde, hoping particularly to see Monet’s famous waterlilies, being a fan of his artwork. I was quite disappointed on arrival though to see the length of the queue waiting to get in. Although I visited in the low season, I found tourists to be abundant everywhere I went.

I sat down for a while outside in the glorious sunshine to ...

... for the taxi. The woman at the counter warned me to be wary of pickpockets.

The taxi from Gare de Lyon to my hotel, Grand Dore, cost 7 euros. My room wasn't ready so I asked the lady at reception for a restaurant recommendation for lunch. She suggested Le Petit Troo which is just a little further down Avenue Daumesnil. I ordered mushroom stew for entree and boar stew for main. Very impressed with the service (very friendly) and the decor, which is classy and quirky - ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Henri IV Rive Gauche Hotel Paris

    Loved the hotel


    My boyfriend and I stayed for eight nights at this delightful hotel July 30-August 6th, 2004. Our room had an amazing view of the church of St. Severin, directly across the street. We were concerned that the noise would keep us awake as the hotel is located on a busy street, but the closing the windows at night gave us complete quiet. The air conditioning was in top form, as it was very warm while we were in Paris. The hotel is within walking distance of EVERYTHING--Notre Dame is less than a 5 minute walk Have a very cheap and delicious sandwich at the take away shop two doors down--the best prices in the area and the bread is great. The staff at the hotel was very friendly and the room was spotless every day. I would highly recommend this hotel and when we return to Paris, we would certainly stay here again. Enjoy! ps. it's true what another reviewer also said about tons of hot water for your shower!

    Romantic garret room with view of Eiffel Tower


    Stayed here for 10 days in July, 2004. Room 602, facing St. Severin Church with a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower (a bonus we didn't expect!) is the room to ask for. It is high up enough, with the windows closed, that you don't hear anything at night, but can still enjoy the view. The room itself is OK, nothing spectacular, but big enough to accomodate luggage for two people and with a good size closet. Here, you are paying for the view. Issues we had however, were the following:

    Great place to stay in the Latin Quarter


    From May 20 - May 26 , 2004 we stayed at this charming hotel.

    Quaint, Romantic and Clean


    My Fiancée and I stayed there for 4 nights and thoroughly loved it. It was quaint, charming, romantic and clean. The employees are attentive and friendly. Anything we asked for they were happy to provide. Our room in the front of the hotel had a great view, however, it was quite noisy well into the night and caused us to close the windows. The continental breakfast is not a bargain at 10 euros per person. The Latin Quarter is very charming, relatively inexpensive and smack in the center of Paris. Also, the St Michael metro station is just steps away. Instead of spending a lot of money on a taxi from CDG, hop on the B line right to St. Michael and spend the money you saved exploring the finer points of Paris.

    Bon Voyage

    Excellent Choice


    We had a very nice stay 8-15 May. The hotel is quite charming and the staff is very attentive and helpful (they held our luggage for us when we made a one day jaunt out of town). Recommend requesting a room in the back of the hotel: rooms facing the street are subject to a lot of noise well into the night. The rooms in the back are not only quieter, but larger as well (we made the switch mid-week).

    Though hardly haute cuisine, there are many restaurants, brasseries, and bistros in the area and the St. Michel metro is a 2 minute walk.

    I would stay here again.

    The best for tasting Paris.......


    Out of the room window, a terific view of the old church gargoiles. Very nice service and hospitality, in the heart of the Quartier Latin very pratic for Underground, RER. I'll return there....

    Superb romantic hotel


    We stayed in this lovely hotel in the Latin Quarter for 2 nights and thoroughly recommend it.Friendly staff,very clean and warm with superb views to St Severin.This hotel is situated in the heart of the Latin Quarter with Notre Dame just five minutes away.Plenty of restaurants and shops around.We would definitely stay here again.

    Great Place!


    We stayed three nights and recommend it highly. Our room overlooked onto an old church and with snow flakes falling on New Years day morning that will be a memory for me. Clean and updated rooms, quiet and located a few mins from Notre-Dame cathedral. Staff was very helpful and Natalie was especially gracious. Close to the St. Michel metro and a funky "restaraunt row" just steps from the hotel. Lots of hot water!!

    Loved the hotel


    My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Henri IV Rive Gauche, 9-11 Saint Rue Jacques in the latin quarter and we loved it. The hotel is everything that it says it is in their web site. The location is wonderful since you can walk right out your door into the latin quarter, Notre Dame and many restuarants and bars. The subway is close by which can take you anywhere in Paris. The people at the hotel are very friendly and spoke english. It always helps to know a little french, good morning, evening, etc. the rooms and the hotle were kept very clean and anything we asked about if they didn't know they would go out of their way to find out. I would highly recommend this hotel.
