Today has been the best Paris day we could have had, considering we are on a one and a half day tour with limited time at each stop :) The sun is out and it is warm today. Perfect.

8:30 am Our driving tour around the city this morning with local guide Domique (loved her French accent! Made the trip so much more authentic) showed us how …

Bonjour, next adventure!

Out the door on time at 7:15 this morning. I was pretty calm getting ready considering how I was feeling last night, although still apprehensive about meeting the new tour group/director/driver... And also about being in non-English speaking countries. I just think it will be a different atmosphere to the UK. I hope everything is comprehensive …

... As it was, we spent almost five hours in the museum and still didn’t get to see the armour collection or any of the exhibits, other than a quick walk-through of the Louis XIV or Napoleonic era. We left with our brains feeling overloaded with info and decided that it was a museum that would require multiple visits to fully appreciate everything.

We headed back to camp and made dinner before getting ready for the game. This involved putting on as many layers ...

PASTRIES EXTRAORDINAIRES

After getting off at our stop, we walked to La Carette again, on the north side of Place des Vosges. I was so exhausted that I was hoping they would want to get the pastries to go but once they saw how charming the tea salon was, they wanted to stay and eat it there. All the outdoor tables were full so we sat inside the 400 year old building next to a huge French window that opened out into an ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Paris La Defense

    Not so great hotel.

    from

    Booked one night at this hotel through expedia. When we arrived, the hotel said they did not have our name or our confirmed paid reservation. Fortunately, we had copies of our reservation. Finally they gave us room for 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids (one double bed and one double sofa bed). Room has excellent view of Eiffel tower. The room itself was a little outdated. Carpet was dirty and had holes. Same with bathroom - holes in the walls. The room needs updating!!

    Fabulous hotel and location

    from

    Just back after staying 3 nights in Novotel La Defence. Cant speak highly enough of this hotel. Its location is perfect, just 2 min walk from Metro station that can have you on Champs Elyese in 15mins. Ideally located if you are travelling to Paris Beauvais airport. Bus drops you at Port Maillot, from there just cross the street, round the corner to Metro and 3 stops later (5 minutes) you are at the hotel. Rooms not very big but double bed and double sofa bed was ideal for us, 2 adults and 2 Children 12 & 8. Very clean and modern. Nice lobby and bar area. Playstation in lobby for kids, great for an hours peace after long day out. Food excellent in hotel, had dinner and breakfast and it was lovely and not over priced. However, drinking in Paris is very expensive €7.50 most places for pint of beer!!! No drunken nights!! We travelled to Disneyland from here which just entailed metro to La Defence station and RER out to Disney (€44.00 return for 4). Hotel held onto our luggage on last day until time for flight which was a great bonus. Will definitely go back to Paris and this would have to be first choice hotel for location and convenience. Lovely view of Eiffel Tower and Sacre Cour from our 7th floor room.

    Well Placed Hotel

    from

    Novotel hotels are just above Ibis in the Accor range of hotels, so are slightly better appointed. Clean, modern rooms with an extra bed for a teenager (or two). The car parking at Novotel La Defence is notable for it's very good security, having a separate gated area within the 'Les Saisons' car park; this being listed as a 'point-of-interest' on Tom Tom Satnavs, which made finding it very easy. The gymnasium is small but has top quality equipment and is worth a visit. For breakfast the cafebar offers orange juice, unlimited croissants, any hot dink and a yoghurt for 6 Euros, a very good deal if you can't manage a 15 Euo 'all-you-can-eat' (a volante) buffet! A final plus point is the hotel's location right next to the Line1 Metro station, which takes you to the Louvre in 15 minutes. An enjoyable stay, would visit again.

    Good, Clean Hotel on a Budget!

    from

    I wasn't sure this would be a location I would want to stay in given the distance from the city centre, but the metro station was right next to it, and it allowed me to get anywhere in Paris I wanted. It was a very nice, clean place to stay that was affordable. I would definitely stay there again.

    Clean but pictures are deceiving

    from

    The hotel is clean and presentable. The reception area, restaurant and bar are very pleasent. The staff are attentive and all spoke very good English.

    Great view

    from

    as we were only spending one night in paris we were just bothered that the room was clean and the beds comfy. and it was.

    hotel is out of the way which caused a bit of annoyance during the short stay esp when travelling across the city to the eurostar (give yourself plenty of time) it was a long walk to everywhere from the hotel, but we were very pleased with the room.

    what made it for us however was the view, we were very lucky to have a great view of the eiffel tower from our hotel room, esp on the night when we were treated to the lights.

    the staff were friendly, and breakfast provided was very enjoyable and worth the money.

    Adequate

    from

    my trip was the first visit to europe , i dont know how much i paid as it was a package deal with flight from Egypt , la defense area is better than downtown and the hotel is close to the underground , they had two breakfasts one intercontinental and a real international one , it depends how much u are paying , the rooms was fine and compared for example to new york standards they are gr8

    Bit shabby, other area choices

    from

    Did not stay here, but had a good tour from a staff member as I was considering it. I was staying at the Sofitel Grande Arche nearby, and now know that I will return there for future business trips. It is far superior, but of course it is a four star.

    Novotel seemed much more of a tourist-class and tour group type hotel. Reception is plain, lobby is just to walk through, elevators fairly small. Half the rooms are now upgraded, but even new furnishings are sparse and just IKEA-grade. One would be very disappointed by the older style rooms. No gym to speak of (also a problem with the Sofitel.)

    Beware of thieves

    from

    Hotel is OK, if a bit over priced for it's location in Paris. But staff is another matter. We had $200 and €500 stolen from our room by a maid or member of the staff. The rooms do not have safes. When I wrote a letter to the hotel manager I did not get a reply, so I wrote to the Novotel main office and their reply was basically it's not their fault. They did not even offer us a coupon or anything. Because of this we will never stay in a Novotel hotel again. If a hotel can't provide adequate security or compensate guest if something happens they don't deserve your business. There are plenty of other hotel chains that do.

    Avoid this hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Novotel on a business trip which we extended into a long weekend for exploring Paris. The Novotel was a disappointment from the moment we walked in the door. There is the distinctive odor of stale smoke throughout the cheaply appointed hotel lobby. There is no tourist information available at the front desk. Room service was slow and OVERPRICED-$26Euros for a continental breakfast of coffee and crossaints for one person! I wish I had read a review of this hotel before our trip - it was our only disappointment in Paris. Thank goodness we enjoyed the city so much, we didn't have to go to the hotel often!!
