... sites of Paris. It was a great help having Aurelie with us as we had to deal with the complexities of the RER and Metro rail systems.
Arriving at the Metro station near the Arc de Triomphe we surfaced to find the weather had slightly deteriorate. Heading off to the Eiffle Tower rain started to fall and steadily became heavier. I've never seen the Eiffle Tower in the rain so I was looking on this change in weather as a new ...
... was a crowd of people trying to see some French celebrity exiting Le Grand Hotel. Of course, I didn't recognize him, but the sisters didn't either, so we were wondering why people were going so crazy. I really enjoyed my day with these sisters. They were all so kind. Loraine and Chamine even offered to take me out to breakfast tomorrow and then come with me to catch the bus to the airport! I can't believe I come home tomorrow. This trip went by so ...
... at the Ecole Militaire station, which should last me for the duration of my visit to Paris. The trip on the Metro was surprisingly fast, considering I had to make changes, some of which required a bit of walking from one part of the station to another. My arrival at the Louvre was through the very posh shopping mall area, and I noted that they also have an Apple store (will visit that later).
As it was now about 12:30, it was time for lunch and there ...

Since I knew Joe would have this same difficulty, Bryn and I raced over to him in his line. He and Sage were at the entrance when I reached him. As I explained that he and I would both need tickets too, the attendant for the 5 - 10 side spoke up. She said she'd let us in without the tickets. Then I had to explain that ...

We had some flashbacks of going through the Vatican museums, the same feeling of despair, irritation and an overwhelming desire to escape the crowds. Once outside, we thought we might as well go into the gardens - at least the crowds would be spread over a bigger area. Also, it would give us an opportunity to rest before we took the long road back to the train station. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lotti Paris
Excellent stay/service - Highly recommended!
My Mom and I went to France as our last Mother/Daughter trip before I marry. We stayed at this hotel and thought it was an excellent choice. You cannot beat the location - we could walk anywhere from here. The room itself was pretty basic, but it had a spacious, beautiful bathroom and the staff was incredibly helpful. I made my reservations online and got a huge discount (which helped as well).
Hello- We stayed at the Jolly Hotel Lotti, where rooms are priced b/t $250-$450/night, BUT.....we only paid $154/night. This is much lower than suggested prices, and we found it on expedia.com, and this find is a huge reason to why we loved our stay. Such a great location, walking distance from everything. Metro stations are only a few hundred feet away, the Louve is a 5 minutes walk away, just a great location.....
4 star dont think so!
yes the lobby area was impressive but when we we taken to our room on the first floor i was shocked by its very poor condition cracked paint poor quality furniture and the view..... air conditioning system which was so noisy we couldnt open the windows the heat was stiffling in the room also im sure that was done to encourage us to drink more from the minibar!! no breakfast included in the inflated price but we found a mac donalds round the corner! next time we will go for 2* with tea and coffee making facilities!
Top value for money
If you payed full price for this hotel you may feel a bit aggrieved.
The room could definitely have done with a lick of paint, and like the previous reviewer our double room was two singles pushed together.
However we got a great internet deal on the room and so found it amazing value for money. Apart from the above the room was a good size (a normal Paris hazard) and the shower was great. Its location is superb, five minutes from the Louvre to one side and Concorde to the other. Would certainly go back again for the same price....
4 Star Rating???
First Glance reveals a deserved 4 star rating - wonderfully decorated lobby and reception area. However the room left me wondering where this 4 star rating came from. The paint was peeling wallpaper was missing and the double bed I had paid for was two singles of different sizes pushed together.I reported this to the satff and they said that the hotel was booked out at this time and the room could not be moved.I checked on the internet and it appears all rooms were filled. They did offer a bottle of champagne as compensation however in my opinion if a hotel provides substandard rooms and hopes they can pass it off with a bottle of champagne do not deserve a 4 star rating.
Great hotel in a great Location
We just got back from Paris and we stayed at the Jolly Lotti. It was a great Hotel and at a wonderful location. You could almost walk to all the major attractions. Excellent hotel and you could find good deals on it too.
I had a much different experience at Hotel Lotti than those listed above. The common areas of the hotel (lobby, bar, reception) were beautiful and it was in a very nice area, although my room had cracks in the walls, the paint was chipping and the furniture looked worn. Not something I would expect from a 4-star. My first problem was when I was put into a room right behind the very loud refurbishments they were doing (next to the emergency exit stairs). Someone was constantly drilling and pounding a hammer right behind the room. When I asked to switch rooms, they were rude and extremely hesitant to put me somewhere else. Finally after 15 -20 minutes of going back and forth with the front-desk staff, they put me into an upgraded room away from the noise (this after they insisted the hotel was completely booked which was very hard to believe). Second, the concierge was of no help and even went so far as to put his hand up when I tried to ask him a question. I was ignored on three separate ocassions when trying to ask for directions. I eventually had to ask the bartender and the doorman since the concierge was too busy chatting on the phone. Unfortunely I will never stay at this hotel again.
Romance at the Lotti
I just came back from a weekend in Paris where my rate was $99 Euros a night. I loved the location of the hotel. I had a first floor room which opened up to a small balcony where there were many impatients plants in bloom. We were able to stand on the balcony and see the Tuileries Gardens and the Place Vendome. It was a romantic weekend.
Everyone was very nice and helpful at the hotel. Catherine's next door is a fabulous place to shop for perfume. See Fanny there, she has an excellent nose.
France Couldn't Have Been Nicer
Just returned with my wife from 6 days in Paris. Stayed at the Jolly Lotti and found it very comfortable and very convenient to main attractions of Paris. Everyone we came in contact with in Paris was wonderful. We found the city to be clean and safe. Stayed also at the Disneyland Hotel for a couple of days. Service there was very good. If you want an excellent meal at a reasonable price try Annette's Dinner in Disney Village. The service was wonderful, particularly if you ask to have Said wait on you.
