... and once again appreciated the price of food in Australia. Gosh things are expensive over here! All those that expect souvenirs, don't get your hopes up for anything special as I'm not even buying myself anything much. I prefer to use my money to go to museums and shows etc.
After lunch I meandered my way through the streets of Paris, enjoying the sights and then headed to the Champs Elysees for a bit more shopping. A few CDs and a bookstore or two ...
... don't know how to stop, look, give way or indicate. In Australia some intersections have signs saying "keep intersection clear"; Paris is more "get as many cars into the intersection as you can before the lights change, even if all the cars end up resembling a herd of cattle yet to be rounded up and you block off everyone who has the right of way". Totally insane. I had great admiration for our bus driver who managed to navigate us through the ...
... to leave for work. Austin and I had a d&m (deep & meaningful) in spoons, before going back to watch hostel, in a hostel. Awesome idea. Sent him back to our home and native land the next morning.
Went to Greenwich to see the meridian and look around the area in general, which involved walking under the river Thames! Got dressed up and went for a "night on the town" (doesn't mean much in wimbledon... Especially on a Monday) for my last night ...
... Juan II: is a luxury 1930's yacht, with the epitome of elegance, suave and debonaire. Combining all the charms of a European yacht - Dutch bow, English library, Italian leather furniture - the Don Juan II is a culmination of French know-how. Antique engravings and paintings, discrete lighting, precious porcelain, leather armchairs, copper and mahogany bar stocked with the finest wines... Here, everything speaks of luxury ...
Today we visited the Louvre Museum. The building used to be the fortified castle --> home of French Kings until 1790's when they moved to Versailles --> now museum. You would recognize it with the glass pyramid. We were supposed to have a guide bring us around and show us the highlights. There is over 9 miles of museum so it is impossible to see everything in one day - let alone 2 hours. However, since Gma wanted a wheelchair - we would have to go on our own with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pulitzer Paris
My wife and I stayed at the Pulitzer Opera for 5 days in Sept 2006. The location of the hotel is very convenient. It is about 10-15 minutes from all of Paris' attractions. The hotel is a mere 50 meters (150 feet) from the Grand Blvd Metro Station. This adds to the convenience. There are quite a few restaurants stones throw from the hotel and offer a variety of tastes.
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 40th birthdays. The hotel was in a good location, it was clean and if there were any problems they were sorted quick, we had a bulb out in our room.
The staff were friendly, and the breakfast room was good.
The only thing wrong was that the bar was a non alcoholic one.
we would stay here again.
Buen hotel, teniendo en cuenta el nivel general de Paris
Habitación aceptable y con un armario mas que suficiente.
Cuarto de baño correcto.
Prensa en castellano.
Buena localización y con estación de metro muy cerca.
Teniendo en cuenta el nivel habitual en Paris para este tipo de hoteles, este hotel cumplió perfectamente mis expectativas
I stayed here for a week in January. In selecting this hotel, my three top criteria were location, Internet access, and a clean room. With these, the Hotel Pulitzer fares adequately.
Brillant value for money
This was my third trip to Paris within a year and this was definitely the best hotel so far. I actually spotted it whilst walking around last time I was in the city and thought it looked so nice I'd go in and pick up a card. Yes, the rooms are quite small but that's fairly common for city centre hotels. But these were tastefully decorated with laminate floors and decent furniture - and they were clean which is the most important thing in my book. It's not as if you spend an awful amount of time in a hotel when you're away anyway so no chance of cabin fever.
Breakfast was fairly basic but fine for my needs. Location was excellent - possible to walk to Galeries Lafayette etc in about 15 minutes.
Okay as a base for day trips
The hotel is reasonably okay, staff are helpful, however, from my point of view the location is a little dodgey at night.
The rooms are small (including the Club rooms) but reasonably equipped, quiet and clean. Safe box is an extra which should be included in the price.
The lift in the west wing of the hotel has been shoehorned into place and as such is not really practical for luggage or pram transport.
Breakfast is repetitive with little choice. Salami, cheese and ham becomes a little tedious. Fresh fruit for example would help. Coffee lousy for France.
For one or two nights the hotel is acceptable but I would seriously reconsider the breakfast option for more nights.
Great Location, great hotel
I have recently stayed for two nights in the hotel Pulitzer and would definitely recommend it as a good base for exploring Paris. The hotel is a short walk from the grand boulevard metro and is easy walking distance from the Sacre Coeur (about a 30/40 minute walk) and the Champs Elyesses. The hotel was very clean and very quiet considering the road outside appeared quite busy (I was in a room facing into the internal courtyard). The room was quite small but perfectly formed with clean bathroom. The breakfast was good with a range of meats, cheeses, eggs, breads, croissants, various juices and hot drinks. If you can get a good deal for this hotel then go for it!
My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in October of 2004, after finding it on the Internet, and it was a fantastic location. We walked from the hotel to the all the landmarks of Paris, and the Hard Rock Café is just around the corner from the hotel.
Stayed there in January 2005. This hotel is in a very convenient part of town (Montmartre) and has easy access to the metro. The rooms are super clean and very nice. The staff was very helpful. Would definitely stay there again.
Felt like new...
Stayed for 4 nights in April 2004. Hotel has been recently renovated and as a result it is in excellent condition. Felt like new...
Good clean rooms, wooden floors etc. Good breakfast. Close to 2 underground stations (to reach train stations and tourist attractions), and walking distance from several restaurants.
Gem of a hotel for the price.
