Two Days in the City of Love

... Bridge, where we attached our padlock of love and threw the three keys that came with it into the Seine river. There was a lovely Asian couple there and we took each others photos so that we both could have a shot as a couple near our lock.

After exploring the outside courtyard of the Lourve, which was breathtakingly beautiful, we headed to a little Italian restaurant that served the best pizza I have ever had. We ordered a ...

The key to a good time !?!

... key on the outside and we couldn't get out. Now, let's get some perspective. We are stuck, in our apartment, in a non English speaking country and the apartment owner isn't answering his phone. There's no reception because we are in a building that is part residential part offices. So this is how we all deal with our little problem: Caitlyn grabs her iPad and starts playing as if this is the most normal situation there could ...

... though it’s more triangular) on the Īle de la Cite – an island in the middle of the Seine. Apparently, they have a sweet little church there, called the Notre Dame, which we didn’t realize at the time. We settled on the La Rose en France, a cute-looking little restaurant on the square. We wandered over, and asked about a table for 2. The proprietor asked if we’d made reservations? Huh. That idea had never occurred to us. None of the ...

... meal in Paris! But never mind - hopefully that will be the first and last bad meal here!! So far though Paris is as amazing as what I thought it would be. Wandering along the Seine this afternoon was so relaxing and was amazing to be able to just take it all it! The people so far seem really nice (really different to what people seem to think!) and there were smiles all round...lots of hugs, kisses and romance from what we could see too. After all they do call Paris the city of love! xoxo ...

Notre Dame and other sites

Hi to all,
Continuing on the story about our wanderings around Paris. Tuesday morning saw Veronica and I take the Metro to Cite and, seeing the queue outside La Sainte Chapelle was about 3 kilometres long, we made our way directly to Notre Dame. It is celebrating 850 years of existence and there were platforms all over the square and tourists everywhere. We, please note, were not to be counted among them - we were members of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du College de France Paris

    Friendly & Helpful

    from

    Stayed at this hotel at Christmas. Most important, staff were Friendly & helpful. We do not speak French and they all spoke English. & they Smiled!

    Reasonably priced. Close to Sorbonne, but good location for the Latin Quarter shopping and restaurants. Beds comfy, rooms spotlessly clean. Nice tall french windows. I would definitely stay here again

    Home Away from Home

    from

    I've stayed at this charming hotel 3 or 4 times. First stumbling across it when another hotel in the area lost my reservations. Tiny but terrific! Gorgeous rooms, friendly staff! I especially love the top floor room! I call this place my "home in Paris!"

    Great value and location

    from

    I had a great stay here with my mother in May 2004. The location was very convenient right in the 5th quarter. The room was Paris-sized (small) but adequate and clean. The bathroom was surprisingly immense. The only things I didn't like - the twin rooms come with bathtub only which meant we had to shower with a handheld showerhead and no shower curtain. Plus, you could hear it whenever a door closed on our floor and there was some street noise with the windows open, but it was well-muffled when they were closed. The beds were comfy. The staff were all really nice, and it's fairly inexpensive. An excellent value overall - I'd definitely stay here again.

    Good Value in the 5th

    from

    CDF is a small independent hotel in the Latin Quarter and is a refreshing change from past stays in the 8th and the 1st. The hotel itself is on a side street away from the noise of the actual nightlife yet a short stroll to the activity. The area abounds with restaurants and Le Pre Verre, across from the hotel, is now one of my must eats. The room is small as is the bath. The baths are renovated, clean and modern with hot water on demand and good water pressure. Towels are proper, not thin; shampoo is provided. I would note that the hotel website shows pictures of one of the 2 larger rooms on the 6th floor and a specific request should be made for the larger accomodation. The hotel is extremely clean. A breakfast option is 8e and we opted out as no expresso is available. All staff are friendly and helpful. Overall, we would stay here again not only for the hotel, but for the charm of the area.

    Felt very safe

    from

    I stayed here with a friend in November 2003. We had a fairly spacious room with a very large bathroom. Location wise, its very good. Lots of restaurants near by, but its on a side street so its quiet at night. I felt very safe here and would definitely go back as a single female traveller. The recepetion desk is right next to the entrance and no one can get up to the rooms without passing it. They lock the doors at night (not sure what time, but we came back at 11 and they were locked) and had to ring to be let in. Everyone behind reception was fluent in English and very, very nice. They were more than happy to give advice where to eat, grab a croissant, etc. They had plenty of maps and would even draw out routes to take. On the day of our check-out our train wasn't until the 9pm and we were spending the day in the city.

    Great Deal in Latin Quarter

    from

    My wife and I stayed here in July 2003 and absolutely loved the location. While the rooms are a bit small, they are well decorated and stayed cool during the hot summer months.

    The location can't be beat. We could walk to any location. Notre Dame in 5 minutes; Rue Montorguil in 15 minutes. Great restaurants, Brasseries, Bistros and Cafes nearby.

    I would skip the breakfast offered at the hotel and go to any number of patisseri's down the street.

    When we go back to Paris, we will stay at this location again.

    Great budget Hotel in Latin Quarter - Definitely stay here.

    from

    The LOCATION:We have twice enjoyed the hospitality of this hotel in the Latin Quarter (5th arrondisement). It is easy to locate as it is positioned a mere 1 minute walk on a side street (Rue Thenard) from Boulevard Saint Germain. The nearest Metro stations (approximately one block away) are Maubert or Cluny la Sorbonne. This is a very convenient location in terms of position to a local market, cafes/restaurants, and some of the sights such as the Pantheon, Sorbonne, Musee de Cluny, Notre Dame, and of course the souvenir shops of the Latin Quarter.

    Good value for the money

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel du College de France from 12/27/03 through 12/31/03. Room was well worth 90 euros a night. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast for 8 euros was above average. This was our sixth trip to Paris and the first time at this hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

    If you don't stay here, you're crazy!

    from

    I stayed at the College du France hotel in June 2003. This is a wonderful hotel - it is very clean, the bed was comfortable, rooms are fairly priced, & the staff is very helpful and pleasant. The location of the hotel is superb. A metro stop is merely a block away. There is an ATM across the street, an open air market a block away and wonderful places to eat all in walking distance of this lovely hotel. The hotel offers breakfast which was a real plus. By American standards, the breakfast is small, but it is fresh, adequate and convenient. I highly recommend this hotel and feel very fortunate to have found it on your website. I would definitely stay here again, and would not even bother to look for an alternative! -Shelley in Honolulu

    Hotel du College de France

    from

    I recently stayed in a wonderful little hotel in the Latin Quarters (5th arrondisement). If you want a safe, quiet, clean, friendly, not to expensive and in the heart of the tourist area, this place might be for you.The name is Hotel du College de France, 7 rue Thenard, Paris 75005This is the web page:hotel-collegedefrance. It is on a very short side street off Boulevard St Germain, very close to subway stations, a few blocks from Notre Dame, around the corner from the Sorbonne, down the street from the Pantheon. Walking late at night isn't a problem as Boulevard St. Germain is busy and so ins't far from boulevard Saint-Michel and that one is very busy.They serve breakfast and it is very good too!
