The Day of the "Tour"
It's with some mixed feelings that we join our first "Tour".
Normally independent travellers this is the first time that we have "toured". A combination of "I'm not driving with you on the wrong side of the road" and wanting to get to Nice have led us here.
We left Würzburg this morning, wishing we could have …
Now, Anthony and I are pretty worldly people, as I'm sure you know. We've not only been to Queensland and Sydney , but we have also travelled some of Australia 's lesser known parts, including Anglesea, Moe, and even Dalesford. And now in London , we have not been afraid to explore the sights and sounds of our new environment - Leeds Castle , Soho …
Like London, my first trip to Paris was in and of itself anti-climactic. We were only in Paris for two nights. We arrived at De Gaulle late in the evening the first day, and we made our way (by taxi!) to the Commodore Hotel (since refurbished and renamed the Millenium Opéra.) Luckily, the woman I was traveling was spoke French (well, Quebecqua...) …
... additional 6 euro which I presume was for the card. It was after 10 when I’d finished at Orange and all the cafes were still packed - doesn't anyone in this city hold down a job?
Couldn't be ***** climbing back up the hill so I caught the metro from Jules Joffrin (which is right in front of the church) to Pigalle. The metro ticket machines give instructions in multiple languages which makes it really easy to get around. I bought a ticket for 1.7 euros ...
... I estimate, is in her mid-50s and took quite a shine to Blair. About a half hour after she first left us at the apartment she returned to deliver a life-saving fan (no A/C in the apartment). She was quite pleased to find him without his shirt on. She didn't speak English but with my rudimentary high school French I had no problem interpreting her fondness for my boyfriend.
Re: The Apartment - I felt like we stepped back in time; the apartment was a small (app 500 ...

When we arrived at this hotel, our room was not ready, so we were upgraded to a suite for 30 euros. Great, I thought, until I saw the size of it - goodness knows how tiny the normal rooms must be. A bottle of champagne was thrown in with the upgrade, but this didn't arrive until we harrassed them for it, and then not until we had gone out for the evening, and since we were checking out the next day, it was a bit useless.
My boyfriend and I were booked into this hotel for 2 nights October 15-16. We made reservations onhotels. When we showed up at 1:00 pm on the 15th we were informed that they had overbooked the hotel and that there was no room available for the 15th.
Stayed here in september 2004, and loved it. Room was small (standard double room), but the rest of the hotel made up for it. Very clean, excellent staff, and a great location. A very nice buffet breakfast was included in the rate of 150 euros per night (from hotels own web site), which I think was good value for a really nice hotel in a good location. Hotel also has a very nice bar area, surrounded by some great decor. Will be staying again.
Excellent stay at the Millenium Paris Opera for 4 nights in August 2004. Our family of 2 adults and 2 children reserved 2 connecting rooms at this marvelous hotel. Friendly, English speaking staff, very spacious (by Paris standards) and nicely decorated rooms, clean 1920s deco styled bathrooms, good storage space, stocked wet bar, color TV and great AC. Our internet rate included a full breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant of cooked eggs, meats, potatoes, cold buffet of cheese and meats, fresh fruit, large array of breads and pastries, etc. Only 1 block from the metro stop, 3 blocks from the Opera House and in an excellent and very safe commercial area of Boulevard Haussmann with many restaurants to choose from. It is a 15 minute stroll to the Louvre and the Seine. Highly recommended and would definitely recommend for families with children (but you will need to reserve 2 connecting rooms).
Very Nice Hotel
Very nice sized room! Really nice staff, close to metro. We really enjoyed our visit and would stay again!
Stayed at the Millennium Opera two times -- Summer 2003 and Summer 2004. Second time was even better than the first. Special care was taken during both stays for a single traveller like me without being asked and the staff from the managers to the support staff were wonderful and spontaneous -- my experience was that most Parisian service is polite but a bit distant. Millennium's is truly warm and friendly. You do not feel right at home -- you feel you are on a trip being well served and taken care of. I don't want to feel right at home when I travel. Quiet and also spacious by Parisian standards. Bathroom is with white marble, clean and spacious. Furniture is old but the five-star hotel that I was with was just the same. Had an enjoyable lunch at the restaurant looking out to the famous Haussmann Boulevard.
Great little hotel
Nice little hotel, lovely period decoration and excellent surplus, no real hotel bar though.
Not so hot
The room was small, even by NYC standards. It was attractive enough, but the bed was the absolute worst; you know the kind - the ones that visibly sag in the middle... We thought about upgrading to a club room, but the beds looked just as bad. didn;t get even one good night's sleep.The service, however, was very helpful and friendly.
Great Hotel spacious room in Paris!!
My wife and I stayed here 4 nights over new years 2002/2003. We had an absolutely wonderful stay, we didn't expect an extreme amount for $140 per night, breakfast was not included but who wants to get up early for an egg when you can sit in a parc with a baquette, brie & champagne!! We had no view, but again, we didn't quite expect any. The room was quite spacious, especially for Parisian standards, had a little entrance area with closet (where I would have expected an iron, there unfortunately was none ) and a large bathroom with seperate shower & bath, done in tubled marble, we were quite impressed! We'll be back!! Friendly staff too!
Great Hotel, Great Location -especially for shopping
Stayed here November 2002. Very nice hotel with lovely public areas and nice rooms. Rooms had tall ceilings and beautiful furnishings. Near Galleries Lafayette (check out the food area), lots of restaurants nearby and half a block to a metro station. Loved it. Recommend it. Will return. Can be expensive.
