Verdict? - Overnight travel is ****.
You don't rest properly, you're not comfortable or rested and you can't enjoy the other end with any focus.
I know I will have to travel through Italy again someday, much more thoughly, and spend many more days in each place ( and maybe check the bed has springs or a mattress before bedtime).
In Florence, we had a morning trip on a fast train after a nights rest. Then I had a great day ...
... it anywhere on the ground, plus Google Maps didn't know where it was. It was raining, our legs ached from all the recent walking and my bag had never felt heavier. It's a long an uninteresting story, but we eventually found it after nearly an hour. I think only my brother, with whom I have also struggled immensely in the rain to locate a rental car office within a European city, can truly identify with my pain. He's seen me at that low point, and had to ...
... in... This meant moment of truth time as it had to be 20kg for the suitcase and 10 for carry-on. I thought I was safe because whilst at Disneyland I sent home one 7kg package and the other girls sent home 2! We were all over! My hand luggage was under by 1kg so I did some shuffling around. I was 3kg over, the other girls were over a lot more. And we had to pay 20 euro for every kg over that we were. By the time ...

The whole spectacle was amazing, well controlled by the gendarmes and the crowd had fun and were great.
When it had finished we wandered away from our spot and then took the Metro home and were back in time to see the winners being paraded on TV.
A great day and tomorrow night Sofie and I head off to Singapore and Amanda returns to ...
... Sage and Bryn especially loved the climbing structure with its slide at the end. Many of the slides we've encountered in Europe have been too steep (and not just for my safety minded children, really too steep). However, this slide was perfect, and both children could slide down it by themselves. Near the playground is a merry-go-round. It wasn't open when we first arrived, but shortly before it was time to leave for our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Hotel Paris Opera
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.
Breakfast was pretty good, and the location is perfect for the opera and for shopping. It's also just across the road from a metro, which is handy.
Finally, we may have been unlucky, but we were woken at 8am on our last morning by unbelievably loud hammer drilling, which then persisited until we checked out three hours later. The hotel claimed that it came from a neighbouring property, but it looked distinctly as if it were coming from their courtyard to us.
Millennium - first class service
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.
This was disconcerting to say the least. It also took time for them to make arrangements at another hotel (the Westminster). Because we only had a day and a half in Paris , every minute wasted checking in really mattered.
However, having said that the hotel staff were very courteous and were very quick in making the alternative arragements. They paid for our short taxi ride to and from the other hotel. Moreover, when we came back for our stay on the 16th they upgraded us and booked us into a large suite. It was absolutley gorgeous and very spacious.
The location of the hotel was ideal and the furnishings were quaint. Even though we were inconvenienced I would recommend the hotel because the staff were so polite and helpful.
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 Heart of Paris Hotel
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!
Wonderful Stay at the Millennium Opera
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 location -- close to everything I wanted of Paris -- metro, shopping, (department store or designers' boutiques), opera house, the Louvre, sights, etc. The concierge last year and this has great suggestions for tours and makes sensible arrangements -- even showed me to a supermarket where I bought a lot of brie and camembert before I returned to Hong Kong. I was weary and unhappy and felt all better being greeted by the reservations staff when I decided to switch hotels. Truly five-star and above service. I think it is because of the size of the lobby and the old elevators which kept this a four-star hotel. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my HK travel agents and my friends.
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.
