... Thank goodness there were screen things between because otherwise it would've been like a massive bunk double bed. Anyways. I headed off (on the underground!!!) to go see Wicked again, cos it was just AWEsome and deserved another see! Had a fantastic seat smack in the middle at a decent distance back.
The next day Tues 3rd was an early start, 0530!!! On holiday! had to sign in between 0600 and 0630. Ouch. Free breakfast though which was a bonus! On ...
... and the more modern side of Paris. In the evening we had drinks at a pub before going to dinner at a French restaurant. The boys both tried snails for entree much to my disgust, they looked gross as they come out in their shell and you have to use a fork to pull out the snail but they boys said they weren't to bad, still made me gag. Our last day in Paris we saved to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, it was a long wait but very much worth it. We had a nice clear morning so it ...
Waking up wasn't fun, after four hours sleep we struggled out of bed and down to the station where the ticket machine fed me 13 pounds in coins... FML!

After Jonathan ran to the supermarche for a few things, he came back and did the dishes (in the dishwasher of course..) and watched some BBC World News, since it's the only English channel we have here. It seems like the hours go by so fast here and before we knew it, it was supper time. Our City ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pont Royal Paris
Based upon the other reviews I can't believe I stayed at the same hotel. The hotel is in an excellent location, the rooms are very small but nicely decorated and the restaurant, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, is oustanding. I found the staff to be the rudest, most unhelpful people I have ever come across.
Every hotel staff was kindly and helpful, (first-class concierge!!) Room was very beautiful, and good condition. Location was excellent! I'll coming back soon...
I picked this hotel based on other reviews I read and agree that it was a charming location, close to nice restaurants on St. Germain and the metro station Rue de Bac. The best was the service however which was impeccable by any standard. Pierre the concierge made our stay perfect by taking care of our every need. Last minute reservations to a two star Michelin restaurant included!!!
Romantic weekend went without a hitch!
From the complimetary apples to the hand written welcome note from the manager waiting for us in the room, this is a truly unique hotel and an ideal place for anyone wishing to have a romantic weekend.
I selected the hotel based upon the previous reviews that had been posted, and I was not disappointed. What a gem! We were able to walk to Louvre, shopping, restaurants, Museum D'Orsay, Notre Dame and even the Eifle Tower (though that was a bit of hike). The hotel is central to just about everything. We were concerned about our limited French but the entire staff spoke some level of English - most of them fluently. The hotel was spotless and you could tell there was a great deal of thought that went into every single detail. We booked the least expensive room type which was small but very well appointed. I wouldn't recommend breakfast in the hotel (over-priced and limited selection) but outside of that - it was outstanding. Concierge staff was phenomenal - make sure to ask for their feedback before you book any tour or restaurant, but be specific when asking for recommendations about what you want. If you want to go where the locals go, you need to tell them, otherwise, you may end up sitting in a restaurant filled with nothing but tourists. Overall, it was a great experience and a wonderful way to spend our Christmas Holiday. We would definitely stay here again.
Great Location - Nice Staff
Agree- the Hotel Pont Royal is in a fantastic location. Walking distance to Orsay, Louvre, St. Germain de Pres, and Notre Dame. Staff were very helpful and nice. Deluxe room with balcony was very clean and well done although smallish and more modern than ones that are individually appointed in a classic style. Overall great experience.
Service was great--staff was friendly and helpful. Room was very well done, but small, as to be expected in Paris. Location was good-convenient to Metro, Louvre, Orsay. Would definitely stay here again.
Loved the Church Bells Each Hour
My two sons and I found this hotel everything a Paris hotel should be. I loved the beauty. good location and friendly staff. The hourly chime of the church bells next door was a lovely surprise. My 12-year-old found the hotel "charming." My 10-year-old said that "the service was really good." Our efforts to speak French to the staff were met with smiles. We can't wait to go back again.
Exceptional Left Bank Location
A friend suggested the Pont Royal on the Left Bank near Rue de Bac Metro, convenient to the Musee d'Orsay. I stayed there many times in the 80s, but sadly the Pont Royal closed for 10 years. After restoration, it is far more beautiful but also more expensive. Ask for a room on the top floor with a view of Basilica Sacre Coeur in Montmartre.
The Hotels Montelambert and Pont Royal (next to each other) are local spots for literary people and antique dealers. Some of the best restaurants are within walking distance. Also, stroll east on Blvd St Germain 10 minutes to the famous Cafe de Flore.
Wow! What a great find!
I have visited Paris 8 times, and have never been as delighted with a hotel as I was with the Pont Royal. The property is gorgeous, quiet, well- located, and the staff makes you feel at home. You can walk everywhere or hop the metro outside the door. Rooms are very plush but not huge (you knew that already!) Paris is not inexpensive, so be prepared to pay. The Pont- Royal is well worth the money. I won't stay anywhere else when in Paris. Bon voyage!
