... s a dedication to those killed in the French revolutionary and napoleonic wars. Surrounding the monument is 12 different roads converging into a round about with 10 lanes of traffic with no line markings. Somehow it works! Crazy French! The view from here was pretty cool with huge trees lining each side of the street for quite a while down the champs de élysées (huge shopping street with upmarket stuff). Kayla bought some clothes and makeup! I bought a baguette
... lots of walking. I wasnt staying in central paris but it was still only a 3km walk to the eiffle tower so I walked most places including in an out of the city.

The last few weeks have been a pretty amazing ride, I am so glad I have a friend like GG who shares similar interests and is good company with whom to share these experiences (plus he’s willing to put up with me!). I would never have done this, nor would it have been anywhere near as enjoyable, without ...

Hopefully I find them in Brussels or Germany. I didn't have time at all to explore the area myself which kind of sucked but that's okay! They really take basketball a lot more seriously here than they did in Ireland, something I really like. Hopefully the next few ...

Historical Traveler Reviews New Hotel Candide Paris
After reading the other reviews listed, I made my trip to Paris and stayed at the this hotel. I can't say enough great things about it. The hotel was clean and staff was perfect. Our room was a bit small but that didn't bother me, french windows were opened for a little fresh air. I loved the long thin tub and this lighting in the bathroom was the most flattering. Oh, and great water pressure too. the free breakfast in the moring is incredibly generous. i looked forward to it!
Great staff at Candide
The Staff could not do enough to please so much so that you accepted a Hotel that could do with a spring clean and a lick of paint. Great location good metro access with an interesting walk to St Michelle via Bastille.
I arrived back home yesterday from a 3 night stay in the Candide and was thoroughly impressed with the hotel. The staff were more than helpful and went out of their way for you. It also had no check in/check out times and the desk was manned 24 hours, which was good in our case as we had a very early flight home. The hotel itself is small with basic facilites but a perfect base for seeing the sights of Paris.
I'd average out all the reviews - it's not awful and it's not fantastic. Breakfast better than some budget hotels in France - help yourself, and did not run out of food as some places. More space to eat breakfast, too. Staff were mainly friendly. Agree - put your own drinks in the mini-bar. Agree with comment about 3rd bed being squeezed into narrow alcove. Room not bad for the price - it's get what you pay for, in my experience. Not easy to get decent, cheap food in this area.
Very satisfactory base
Very satisfactory base for city sightseeing, great breakfast & friendly helpful staff who went out of their way to assist with directions etc. ALSO...good beds, clean linen & room & hot hot water.
Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of July- We found it nice enough- basic but your never in your hotel are you?! Breakfast consisted of crossiants, hard bread and ceral!! Mini-bar is expensive go to the shop across the road and put your own drinks in the fridge! Tip for you- the nearest metro station is the Volitiare- literally on your doorstep- turn right out of the door and right again onto the main street, cross the road and walk a few yards to the end of the street- metro station is there! You will find that you have to change lines frequently for the attractions of paris, we bought a paris visite pass allows you unlimited access to the metro. Highly reccommended if you are planning to see all the sites. If you are staying at this hotel you will need Zones 1-3 for all the attractions (does not include airport), which should cost around 30 Euros for 3 days access. The metro finishes around 12.30pm. Taxis from CDG airport to the hotel cost between 40-50 Euros depending on the time of day- hope you found this useful!
Wonderfully Paris, Hotel Candide
On Side Street, rooms small but adequate. Staff More than friendly and helpful. Very Clean. Would definitely stay again
This somewhat shabby hotel is not quite the glitz and glam of the photo's. We had double occupancy of their triple bedded room, but the third bed was clearly an afterthought, shoved into an odd shaped alcove and reminiscent of a prison bed. It also blocked access to the desk and chair!.
Two lightbulbs had blown, the night porter wasn't able to supply extra pillows (there was one per bed), and the hand held shower flooded the bathroom floor!
The breakfast was pretty disappointing too! I would rate it more as a one or two star. Unless a minibar and direct dial phone is important to you, I suggest you look elsewhere!
Not quite 3 stars...
A bit out of the way, and not quite 3 stars. Maybe 2. The shower was one of those hand-held models popular in Europe. But with a screw missing, it seemed to wash my feet and the walls better than me. Plus it didn't drain well at all, nor did the one in the room next to me. Frustrating. Noisy...my room was right next to the elevator and the metal doors made quite a noise. On a positive note, the availability of breakfast in the room was good and timely. Not a horrible place, but not recommended. We switched hotels as soon as we found a replacement.
