so today was versailles, (with my full camera, so pics will appear later when i get them off my mom's), so we took the train there and got a bit lost on the way versailles is so gorgeous and made me feel terribly sad that i was born to late to have been apart of its opulence, i was pretty much out of camera space and so could only take 3 photos of …
ok, well so far i'm loving it here, though the keyboard's are all muddled. we arrived completely exhausted and mom decides to unpack eveything favourite part so far is the metro, my god its SO useful. no more than a 5min walk from anywhere to a stop, train every 6mins and they go FAST. also you buy one ticket, set price for each zone or combined …
... than the lads, we have decided that at all entrances to frock shops it should be MANdatory for a park bench with a few mags and beverages to be made available. The Arc looms large, the anticipation intensifies at each block nearer. As do the crowds. This like most statement structures loom large, and best when standing under / along side as the sheer power and domination dwarf you and all else around. Plonk it in the middle of an enormous traffic roundabout ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Louvre Marsollier Opera Paris
Only charming from the exterior
Tiny, dark, windowless rooms. We checked out as soon as we checked in - would not recommend this hotel.
Nice Hotel, Friendly People
Surprised by the comments that the front desk staff weren't generally helpful - maybe the visitor was just unlucky with staff availability at the time of their stay.
I stayed at this hotel March/April '04 and on arrival the lady at reception (unprompted) presented me with a map, circling all the best shopping, dining, monuments, etc in the area. The kitchen staff were also really friendly and helpful and the guys who worked reception (one at weekends only) were pleasant, polite and knowledgeable.
I've stayed in a few Paris hotels but never felt so well taken care of as I did at this one.
Excellent location for various sites - Louvre, department stores, metro etc..I would definitely return to the area but I don't think I would return to the hotel. The rooms are small, however they are clean and neat. Front desk service is non-existant as one reviewer stated. Aside from one assistance, Pol, the service was poor and it seemed as if I was bothering them should I ask them a question regarding Paris. Pol was the only one to be of great assistance and often offered more information that was very helpful but he only did the night shifts so one would have to get up early to speak to him, if he was working. I also stayed at another comparable hotel for about the same price and I found their front counter service to be excellent. I would advise others to look around for a comparable hotel if one wants to stay in the Louvre area.
Location is all that is great
The location is excellent but that's all! The service is non-existent.
The rooms and bathrooms are tiny and make sure you know your neighbours because you'll defintely hear them clearly in their bathroom! Rooms are just 3 star standard and the elevator can fit one person and one suitcase at a time which made it a lot of stairs for our family of five! Not worth the price.
Friendly place, great location...
small rooms but nice & clean
Excellent location. Within walking distance of the metro, Louvre, Opera, and shopping. The Opera and Galleries Lafayette are literally right around the corner from the hotel. The family room was way to small to comfortably accommodate a family of 4. We should have reserved 2 separate rooms. However, the staff was extremely friendly. The room was beautiful and the free breakfast was appreciated. I took a chance and booked the hotel soley based on its location, and without prior recommendation. I am so glad that I did. I would love to stay there again (however this time without the kids).
Great neighborhood, nice hotel
We loved the neighborhood, an easy walk to the Louvre, la wealth of shops and restaurants and easy metro access. The hotel was spotlessly clean, staff friendly and helpfull, but rooms small as befitting an older hotel. We would certainly stay there again.
