Radisson Blu Hotel, Paris-Boulogne
Travel Blogs from Paris
... hilarious watching how 12 lanes of traffic merge - but they do,with lots of horns tooting and hand waving. The Arc de Triumphe is partially under scaffold at the moment, but we walked around it and down the Champs Elysses looking for George's Cafe, which we didn't find. It was packed with tourists like us, and it isn't even the high season. It got a little overwhelming for me, so we headed off to explore the back streets and find ...
... then on we hopped to the airport shuttle which took us to our terminal. As we approached terminal one, we got ready to run out. The bus stopped, and we were already running.. But where was easy jet? We looked upstairs, downstairs, from one end to another and we couldn't find it.. We then asked a taxi man who told us that we were in the wrong terminal. Ahhhhhhhh so we ran to terminal 2, which he kindly assured us would be quicker than taking a taxi. So we ran and ran ...
Everyone got out or into their parking spot with only minor cosmetic damages to their cars, but gave us an insight as to how things are run in Paris.
Trying to recover and re group long enough to find our bus and group we traveled back to the hotel, travelling through yet more crazy Parisian driving!
After dolling ourselves up we made our way to one of the experiences near the top of my bucket list, a show at the Moulin Rogue! The show ...
After our 3 days we rather happily hopped back in the rental car and drove back to Lisbon airport to catch a flight to Toulouse, where we spent a lovely long weekend with Alistair, Becs and their gorgeous 3 year old Isobel. Ant had stayed with them before his cycling tour so co8uld show me the sights and we headed into town and had a great lunch at the fresh food markets. Al was also able to get Ant into see the final assembly line for ...
... the tour ended, it was about 3pm. I decided to go and have a beer and settle myself down in St Germain Boulevard, a busy shopping street. I found a little bistro and enjoyed doing some people-watching, but was really just overwhelmed by how busy the city was and started longing for quiet Lausanne. The heat was unrelenting and I really felt like it would take months for someone like me to adjust to and become familiar with a city like ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Paris-Boulogne
New & Clean!
We stayed at this Radisson in June, 2006. The hotel is only about 1 year old, it's very clean and quiet. Nice location on a fairly quiet street. There is a Chemist/Pharmacy within one block, a convenience store across the street. Nice neighbourhood for a walk in the evening.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paris.
An enjoyable stay
Myself and my husband stayed here in April.
After taking 40mins to find the hotel from the Metro station we were plesantly surpised.
Hotel was new, clean, staff was friendly, and the bed was really comfy. Aircon and flat screen in each room.
It was about 15mins by metro to all the touristy places, which was both positive and negative.
Only downfall about the hotel was the price of breakfast. Im sorry im not paying 22 euros for a few cakes and tea!
Would recommend though.
Je suis venu pour travailler...mais je reviendrai pour mes vacances.
Une décoration comtemporaine, un personnel souriant et sympa.....rien à dire.
Good quality hotel
The hotel is a little far from the touristy areas of Paris but we found that it only took about 10mins to get from the Eiffel Tower by metro and the metro was fantastic, we never had to wait for more then about 2 mins for each train.
The hotel itself was great very minimalistic and trendy and breakfast was great, a lot of choice.
If you are looking for snacks in the bar there is not a lot of choice on offer but that would be my only grumble about the whole 4 days we spent there.
If returning to Paris I would like to stay a bit closer to the centre but it was no hardship in getting the metro from the Radisson!!
Having not much time since being back in the uk to write a review I am here to give one now.
I stayed in this hotel for several weeks for business purposed, so I was looking for a comfort. The hotel has recently been redesigned and offers some very nicely designed rooms that include a free wireless internet connection (broadband) as well as 26inch lcd screens. The beds are nice and the overall room is very clean. The location is good for business travellers if you need to work in the are but at a rack rate of €295 for the superior room I know you can find more central hotels - it really depends where you need to be, though connections to central Paris with the public transport is not bad. Beware of the fact that there is absolutely nothing happening around the hotel in the evening. Closest shops are about a 15mn walk away. The only problem is that you can slightly feel and hear the underground line running under the hotel every 10mn until shortly after midnight. Air conditioning is also noisy. But be sure to go directly through the hotel reservationsm as they are very open to negotiate the prices. I got a 50% (!!) discount on the rack rate just after asking for a little help.
A Very nice hotel
In Radisson hotel i spent with my boyfriend 3 great days in Paris!!!The hotel is wonderful.For us the most important thing was the clean.and this hotel was extremelly clean!Also the food was plenty and very tasty and the stuff very polite.Its a modern hotel with all the things that you will be need for pleasant holidays in Paris,even in the hotel.Oh and be careful with the channels in the flat TV.it has PAYTV ....
This really is a great hotel! I stayed here with my boyfriend for four nights in September, and we really can recommend it. It was opened in July 2005.
The new Radisson Hotel in Paris is realy nice. I was with my girlfriend there and we enjoyed it very much: clean, modern, PERFECT breakfast, nice staff, only 10 minutes by metro to the Franklin Roosevelt metro station (Champs Elysees). The rooms are not large, but also not small, probably they are large for Paris. There is a flat TV-screen in the room.
I would recommend everyone to stay at this hotel.
The only problem was that the mini bar had not been full by arrival and after my check-out they charged me the drinks I had never taken. I contacted the management by email, explained the situation and they immediately credited my account, very professional!
I hope I will be back soon.
I visited Paris with my wife and 2 children the last week of July 2005. We stayed at the SAS RADISSON HOTEL BOULOGNE for 6 nights. We were given 2 rooms at the 7th floor. The hotel is really good,the room was large, compared to Parisian standards, and the bathroom was very clean, modern and large. The hotel provided us with everything a traveller would need, including slippers, bath-robes and a wide collection of shampoos etc. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept on. The staff was friendly, polite and really helpfull. The breacfast buffet was excellent. There was not heard traffic or other noise on the 7th floor.
