Travel Blogs from Paris
The weather in Paris for the past few days has been really hot which is not enjoyable without having somewhere to swim. So we decided to get out of the city for a few days and on the recommendation of our friends, Jenny and Gavin, went to Reims which is about 130 km north of Paris in the Champagne region. Our criteria for the hotel search were airconditioning and a pool and we found the Hotel au Tambour which was perfect for us. The most ...
... de triomphe and many more monuments that make Paris the most interesting city ever. It took thirty minutes for me to find out I was in love with the city, and now I never want to go back to Michigan.
Saturday morning we went on the Eiffel Tower, which was one of my favorite experiences of the trip so far. It's overwhelmingly high, but the view knocked the wind out of me. We also got up to the top super quickly because daphne had bought tickets for us ahead of ...
... where King Louie the (?) lived. He just couldn't hold it together and lost his head during the French Revolution. The palace itself is a magnificent building, but it was an absolute obscene and extravagant lifestyle, no wonder there was a revolution. Tonight we go out for our farewell meal together and then for a river cruise to see the lights of Paris. I have promised to tell the young ones on the tour the story of the Pink Gorilla! Tomorrow we leave for London...see ya ...
... which was delicious,I had gyoza in a broth. Then teeny lamb chops and Robouchon mashed spud for Jeff and langoustine and truffle ravioli for me. Dessert was a passion fruit soufflé (hot) and sorbet and a coffee number for Jeff. Petit fours finished us off! I have been twice before but I don't think I'll be back. Smaller portions and higher prices and full of americans. we could have had lunch at George V for about the same ...
... the teeniest hotel rooms the size of my closet, fashionably dressed women, men and children, and two hour meals where no one, and I mean no one is in a hurry.
On the flip side, we have been met with nothing but kindness and an effort to help. It has made a really long day so much easier to enjoy. After 24 hours of travel, we arrived at our hotel with an absolutely squeal worthy view of the Eiffel Tower. A two hour nap geared us up for ...

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.
