... school band playing on the front steps.
Now they can say they have played the Paris Opera house. (you can click on the pictures to make them bigger)
Once inside, the opulence overtakes the senses.. Marble of every color and style is everywhere. Chandeliers, architectural details, decorated ceilings, crown moulding, painted scenes of heavenly creatures. The marble handrail on the staircase ...
... of the city. I headed from the tower to the sewer museum. The museum was part of an active sewer system and smelled as such! It was definitely different but not an experience I'd care to repeat. From the sewers I headed to the Rodin museum. I saw a cool looking dome and some pretty gardens on the way so I stopped to check it out. It turns out that this was Napoleons tomb. It looked a lot like a basilica. The pillars weren't made of marble and there ...
... locally made and SO inexpensive -- a round of triple creme for 2 euros or a hefty slice of brie for 1.80. And about dessert, let me just say this: creme brulee; walnut cake from Domme.
... decided to take us near Notre Dame de Paris so we could walk around a little bit. She gave us some free time, so the girls and I decided to visit the neighborhood before going back to the meeting point so we could home.
Eventually, we got back to the hostel and went straight to our rooms so we could sleep. Tomorrow was going to be a long and busy morning because we were finally returning to Denmark.
... Rue Cler) that we would be visiting. Mael was saddened to learn that this would be our last night in Paris and that we had plans for dinner because he had several recommendations for us. We wrote them all down for future visits! The most special one is Hotel Thoumieux. There are actually two restaurants under the same name. One, upstairs from the other, serves 16 course meals and requires reservations at least 2 - 3 months in advance; the other ...

Charming Boutique Hotel
Great location within 5 minutes of Champs ...
Decent sized rooms and bathrooms - all recently remodeled.
Cute lobby and restaurant area - breakfast included.
Go directly to hotel website for the best rates - I paid between $199Eu-$399EU for my stay - definitely worth it for anywhere under $300EU.
Ho soggiornato in questo hotel per un viaggio di lavoro (luglio 2006) e non avevo letto le recensioni prima di partire (un collega aveva fatto la prenotazione per me), ma sembra chiaro che l'hotel sia stato completamente rinnovato da quando è stata scritta l'ultima recensione. Questo è per lo più un moderno hotel boutique. Le camere sono arredate con molto gusto e hanno un aspetto molto moderno e pulito. La mia camera era dotata di TV a schermo piatto e interenet ad alta velocità. Il personale era disponibile e cordiale. Il bar al piano di sotto era bello ma non posso commentare sul cibo in quanto non abbiamo mangiato in hotel (come è già stato detto da altri, nei dintorni è pieno di posti in cui mangiare). Vorrei far notare che su Expedia appaiono delle foto datate dell'hotel, mentre sul sito di TripAdvisor le foto dell'hotel, tratte dalla galleria di foto della Orbitz, sono più attuali. È interessante fare un confronto e vedere com'era prima e adesso!
Dall'esterno non ci sono indizi su cosa aspettarti ma, una volta in camera, lo spazio, i soffitti alti, l'arredamento e il decoro minimalista, il bagno di gran classe... tutto rende questo posto una piacevole sorpresa.
Whilst the hotel itself is a bit more high 3 star than the advertised 4 star don't let this put you off.
My husband and I stayed here for five nights during the first week of September. It was our second time in Paris and also, our honeymoon. We stayed at the K+K Cayre last fall and wanted to try another contemporary/modern boutique hotel, but on the Right Bank this time.
From the outside one has no clue what to expect but once you get into your room the space, high ceilings, minimalist (just right) decor and furniture, top class bathroom... all make it a very nice surprise.
Had to stay here for a business trip (July 2006) and hadn't read the reviews here in advance (a colleague booked it for me) but it seems clear that the hotel has been completely renovated since those reviews were written.
I've stayed in hotels in Europe before, in fact, alot. I know that unless you are staying at a top hotel, a quaint bed & breakfast or a hip boutique hotel expectations should be lower than what most experience of a hotel in the States. However, this was beyond acceptable. This room was frightening. Something out of National Lampoon's European Vacation. The walls were covered with fabric wall paper and there were stains on the walls, in more than one place. Who knows what those stains were but it honestly gave the feel of a dirtbag hotel. The bed had so many lumps and a pit so deep it was honestly laughable. The bathroom was so outdated, it looks like it hasn't been updated since the early 70s. Yes, the location is incredible, it really is in a great place. The bakery downstairs sells some of the best Chocolate Croissants I've ever had in my life. However, the room itself gives the feel of a pay-by-the-hour hotel room in the Bronx.
Great location but poor accommodations
Central location ALMOST made up for shabby accommodations. Bed was very lumpy, no one gave us a replacement for a burnt lightbulb, and one of the receptionists was very rude and unhelpful. If it weren't for the great fun outside of the hotel, it would have been a disastrous stay.
Definitely does not warrant the 3 stars given by a hotel booking website. Two stars is more like it.
