... ago. There are now that many locks on the bridge it was impossible to find it. Not only has each side of the bridge's fences been filled with locks they are now growing like stalactites towards the centre of bridge.
Video Girl and Battery Boy revisited the Louvre and Jardins Thuillers before returning to the apartment for a little rest. Around 9 o'clock they headed out to dinner at "Fish La Boissonnerie", 69 rue de Siene.
... that filled the air as we walked in and around the classic rose garden.
Only the occasional monkey-like shrieks of a colony of resident peacocks interrupted the peace and quiet of this otherwise tranquil setting. From the rose garden, we walked along the shady lanes in the park to reach the chateau that sits next to its western boundary wall. This elegant little chateau was built in 1774, in just sixty-four days, as the result of a "bet" between ...
Another huge day. Left the hotel at 9am, went straight to the Eiffel Tower. Went right up to the top, I think it was 4000meters! Awesome views due the nice weather in the morning. It turned bad towards the end of the day. Then walked trying to find Statue of Liberty replica, with no luck. Heaps of bridges, even more traffic, and 1 day to find everything. Then walked to arc de triomph and the tomb of the lost soldier. It's surrounded by a 4 lane ...
... s words) Englishman who told us that no one would be thee until 5pm to let us in. Sheltered across the road and waited 45 mins. It was worth the wait - what a magnificent place, very old world, just lovely. Sitting in the parlour with our pilfered moulin rouge champagne enjoying some bubble and great conversation was divinely relaxing. Poor Tania not feeling great took herself off to bed as did Bruce. The rest ...
Waking with a sore head, we set out and ate at the recommended breakfast spot on Rue Montogueil, ordering an awesome assortment of everything! Finishing this lazily, we wandered through the ritzy shopping streets of the ultra-wealthy, near the Monument to Napoleon, and (after some more perfume shopping), We wandered through the fun park outside the palace gardens, saw an 40 y.o. asian man on a ride **** himself and a kid throw up, and wandered around the palace ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Minerve Hotel Paris
Ew. The staff ruined it for me.
I stayed there and found the hotel itself to be quite modern. However, the arrogant fat bald man at the front desk was totally unwilling to be helpful and seemed to take pleasure in leaving us stranded. I would have thought it was only us, but there were other guests complaining as well. When I went next door to the Familia to complain--since they have the same owner--they were very quick to distance themselves from the Minerve and made it clear they had different management.
Great value, location, staff
I have stayed at the Minerve on several occasions, including once with my graduate class of 20 students for 2 weeks, and found it peaceful, well located and friendly. While some rooms are small, even they have a certain charm. Wish they would give more variety for breakfast.
This is a wonderful, family-run property. Very gracious to US tourists.
We stay here each time we are in Paris.
Very pleased with this hotel. You can walk to many attractions on both banks and Metro and bus access is first rate. Rooms are small and more expensive rooms on the street side (with balconies) are much nicer (and more costly) than those opening onto air shafts in back. Midlle rooms on the fifth floor in front had tiny showers only while corner rooms had a bath at the same price. I certainly would go back.
We loved this hotel. We travelled with our three year old son. They were very accomadating and kind. They even let us keep some outlet adapters for the rest of our trip. The rooms were small but clean and cute, and the tiny balconies were nice, and with a nice view. We enjoy the noises of the city and often kept our balcony doors open. Across the street is a cute patisserie with the sweetest lady and tiny dog that work there. Also the pastries at breakfast were delicious be forewarned though... you don't have to pay for or eat breakfast so make sure you don't if you don't want it.
Overall, we had a good experience. The rooms were very small (by American standards), but were generally clean. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful when asked for restaurant and site seeing recommendations. A metro stop was about 2 blocks away. We never ate at the hotel, as there were small pastry and sandwich shops right across the street. Latin Quarter location is always great.
Even with e-mail confirmation in hand, hotel botched reservation. The most unhelpful and rudest hotel staff I've ever encountered. Customer service is a unheard of term here. Did nothing to accomadate us. Many better hotels to stay at in the Latin Quarter than this palce
Don't stay here!
Be warned- I had 80 Euro stolen from my (miniscule) hotel room here. I had put it aside so that I would be able to pay my hotel bill, and when I went to pay at the reception it was gone. The receptionist was very unsympathetic, and I could understand it might have looked like a scam, but it was a horrible way to end what had been a fantastic stay in Paris.
Beware of Hotel Minerve!
We stayed at Hotel Minerve for 5 nights and found the hotel to be quite clean, safe and cozy. The only problem however, was the fact that we had clothing stolen from our room! Someone in Paris is walking around in my favourite blue top...which makes you wonder about the quality of the staff working at this otherwise recommendable establishment.
I highly recommend this charming hotel. Minerve Hotel is beautiful. It is located about four blocks from the Notre Dame in the Latin Quarter. The medium sized rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. It was recently refurbished and so everything is new, even the bathrooms! Service was very friendly and extremely accomodating. They are very helpful in giving advice on how to see Paris with limited time. Some rooms have balconies (with a view of the Notre Dame) and some have small private court yards. If you want a room with a balcony ask for one on the 5th floor, they're larger and have tables on them. Price is comparable to other hotels in the area. Metro is nearby.
