... were caught by a hat shop and in we went. We came out with 2 berets for us girls and 2 fedoras for the boys!! Check the boys out in the photos!
The Jewish Museum was around where we were so we decided to go there first. We had to put our bags through a scanner - they're big on that over here! We thought at first that we didn't have to pay but it's only free for Europeans. The museum wasn't the best Jewish Museum I've been in. It was more about their history ...
This morning we woke up to packing and chaos (not really, we slept in!). We went to breakfast at 8:30. Later, we packed up the car and drove to the Frankfurt International Airport. We dropped off our rental car. We went through security. I, again, didn't get pat down, but Sue did. Lynn forgot about the 100 m. liquids rule, and got her new mousse, shampoo, and conditioner excavated. Last time, she got her Swiss Army ...
(This is Stacey - this blog may bore some people with all the details of my marathon - sorry!). Today is marathon day! I woke up super early this morning after a restless night. I couldn't believe it I had a sore throat and blocked nose. Of all days! My marathon guide suggested eating breakfast at least 3 hrs before the race so it has been properly digested, so that's what I did. I had a good breakfast of rolled oats, a bagel with banana and a cup of ...
... bearings and play navigator. We walked down the Champs-Elysees, to the Louvre, the lock bridge, Notre Dame, Musee d’Orsay, Christmas markets and some amazing Parisian streets. Lovely days stroll really.
... butter. Needless to stay, travelling to our hotel the next day was not an easy venture.
But.... I had peanut butter. And that's all that matters in the end.
Arriving to our hotel, huffing and puffing, we got the keys to our room only to find that we were on the 6th floor of an elevator-less hotel. Thanks again for the exercise! :)
Over the next 3 days we managed to:

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Lapin Blanc Paris
Great Location, Good Value
I stayed at the Dacia Luxembourg for two nights in early December on a writing/research trip. I found the accommodation to be perfectly adequate, quiet for such a busy area and clean. The buffet breakfast was an excellent start to the day, with friendly service. If I were staying in Paris for a week or longer, I might try to find something with a little more character and personal attention, but this hotel certainly meets an acceptable standard. Great for travel to and from CDG airport too, since the St. Michel/Notre Dame station is just a short walk away.
Nice hotel, lovely district
My recent stay at the Hotel Dacia was a great experience. The hotel is ideally situated just minutes away from the metro station, (especially at the arrival, coming from the airport). The hotel staffs were very helpful and the rooms are quite charming. I strongly
recommend the Hotel Dacia!
Disappointed with the dacia hotel
we only stayed at this hotel as we could only get booked into our usual hotel for the first and last day of our trip, there were two young receptionists one male and one female who were really miserable, i was so looking forward to getting out of the place and and returning to our usual hotel where the receptionists are lovely.cleaners excellent and v.friendly.
the room was quite cold we were there from 19th oct 05 .also the room was on a busy main road which was very noisey. i will certainly be booking into my favourite hotel in plenty of time to clinch my reservation in future !
Terrible. We had booked 5 nights in this "so called" hotel, but we fled after a single night. The internet presentation, phiotos and so on, are just the opposite of reality. The rooms are tiny, the beds are tiny, the bathrooms are tiny, the elevator is tiny, the lobby is tiny - well, it seems designed by a crew of gnomes. I had no bedside table, since there was no room for it, and the bed was for a Barbie House. Thr window faced a grey stone wall. Definitely, there'a a lot more of possibilities in Paris, STAY AWAY from this one!
Paris- wonderful, hotel on the cramped side !
Be very careful when booking through the "hotels- exclusive" web site, i inadvertendly booked via the french website. Booked giving full credit card details, with no mention of cancellation fees being apparent. Later the same day of booking, I cancelled (thinking hotel was abit expensive) reinstated the booking the next day, direct with hotel when they advised me there would be a small booking fee of 3/4 euros. (couldnt be bothered with hastle in the end) so reinstated booking. Without my knowledge or authorisation £60 was taken out of my account !! this was on the 4/5/05 and still to this day they still havent given me a refund !( 10/6/05) upon assurances it is being done ! That aside, the hotel is in a wonderfully central position. 10 min walk to Notre dame, Seine, and in the latin quarter distict which is very vibrant and busy in the evenings especially ( wonderful restaurants/bars) Hotel staff very friendly and spoke very good english. Hotel room ( one with four poster bed- in back of hotel, quiet room) very cramped, but did have mini bar, air conditioning and seperate bathroom to toilet. Ideal ! Clean and tidy, serviced daily. Didnt have breakfast there as we chose to eat out as opposed to in the cellar (no light but comfortable).
If you decide to use the open top buses on a two day round robin sightseeing tour. (22 euros each for 2 days)- slightly expensive to say the least, but it does give you a good view of paris on the way around. DO NOT USE THE RED buses.. USE THE YELLOW ONES!! the red ones do not take you to the Sacre Coeur, the yellow one does. The walk from the Opera House (nearest bus stop from a red bus) to the Sacre Coeur is about 20 mins uphill, and on the day we went, very hot ! The river boats are also wonderful to view paris. a day ticket being 11 euros each. A must is to go and see the light display at the eiffel tower on the hour every hour in the evenings. The eiffel tower is lit up in gold in the evening, but on the hour a trillion white fairy lights dance and glitter for 10 mins !! wonderful. We sat on the steps at the Trocadero with a picnic of Wine, cheese, olives, bread etc at 11pm, and had a most wonderful view of the display. Paris can be very expensive. Be careful were you drink ( a medium lager and a half lager shandy cost us 12 euros= £8 ! but if you look for happy hours bars, the drinks are reasonable - a pint of lager 2 euros £1.34 (ish). Take a corkscrew with you if you like wine, going for a drink al fresco on the banks of the Seine in the evening is a very popular pastime. We went for a two day break and managed to fit in all of the main sights (ex interior of Louvre) as well as having lovely meals and drinks in the evenings. It can be done, and not be too tiring !
We stayed here for 4 nights from the 10th november 2004 and had a lovely stay. Arrived in Paris at the excelsior hotel in rue cujas and had to leave the hotel as it was appalling! We walked around the corner and found the Hotel Dacia.
Fortunately for us they were doing a special deal of only 90 euros per night for the room including breakfast which was the same price as the Hotel Excelsior. The room was lovely with tea making facilities and the bathroom was absolutely spotless. Breakfast was also very good in the basement with arched vaulted ceilings which is so typical of Paris. Standard french breakfast with very friendly staff. We can wholeheartily recommend this Hotel.
The Hotel reception staff also spoke english which was very helpfull.
Dacia Luxembourg - VERY disappointing
My husband and I just stayed at the Hotel Dacia Luxembourg and were very disappointed. For the prices charged, there is little value; room and bathroom were tiny and felt claustrophobic, the 'double' bed was closer in size to a single. Corridors were so narrow its hard to imagine they don't present a fire risk. Hotel lobby and corridors smelt of fish during entire stay. Hotel definitely spoilt our stay in Paris.
Good value in an expensive city
A well-located hotel with knowledgable staff. Rooms small. Rooms overlooking street were quite noisy. Ours was the cheaper option, and was much quieter. Matresses rather squishy.
Clean & comfortable
I have stayed in Dacia Luxembourg on two separate occasions, in 2001 and 2003. The hotel is very central and within walking distance to all tourist areas, the closest being the Luxembourg Gardens, Notre Dame and Saint Germain. It is situated on a main shopping street, but with saying that the rooms are sound proof from street noises and other neighbouring rooms.The bedrooms are small but have all the necessary mod cons and also have tea-making facilities, which was great after the days sightseeing. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a reasonable rate and a great holiday experience in Paris!
Good simple reasonably priced hotel
A good basic hotel, reasonably priced in a central location. Decent rooms, clean and comfortable and definitely on the "bijou" side but how much time does one spend in a hotel room in Paris?
