... stops away is Sacrée Cœur. Climbing all the steps or taking the funicular up you now see the amazing view of Paris. Next there are many bridges in Paris crossing the Seine, one of the bridges is famous for the many locks. It is called the Love Lock Bridge. The locks symbolizes forever love. You lock the lock to the bridge and through the key in the river your love will last forever. Hope you enjoy these amazing monuments or attractions in Paris! Bisous! Au Revoir! Girl and ...
... I made each of us mini copies of our passports - so I stuffed mine in my bra - along with 20 euro to get us home just in case and off we went. Bob hasn’t particularly enjoyed the Metro nearly as much as I have - however he is very good at figuring out where we need to go. That is until, I KNOW where we need to go. HA! We had to switch trains to get to Pigalle - something he avoids as much as possible - but I’m so glad that we did. Our ...
... River Seine past many of the more famous monuments. It was nice to toast Pariee with a bottle of champagne for me (and a beer for Bobby). Unfortunately we both almost fell asleep on the return trip up river. Bob forgot his jacket and it is a bit chillier here than back home. Low 70s (yep - you can hate us now!) Being exhausted after such a long day - we grabbed a cab back to our hotel.

... As Ramsey immediately took his much needed jetlag nap, I self-taught French basic essentials following the extreme language barrier. The nap ended with my language lessons (aka writing all essential translations into a pocket book). We left Sublim Eiffel and walked Rue de Lecourbe to explore, people watch, and soak in the reality that we are in France! Walking down random streets, we arrived at a beautiful park where dogs were ...
... I last saw about 16 years ago to the urbane, helpful young man who met me downstairs and ensured I was well installed. It's a wonderful place to stay, handy to a cafe, a cheese speciality store, a fruit and vegetable store and a delicatessen, so, you see, all my needs are catered for. And, if it's the touristy things I am after, La Tour Eiffel is just up the road. Alexia has not come to Paris yet as she has business ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Regina Hotel Paris
Old world charm and style
We stayed at the Regina in June and loved every second of our visit.
Our room was incredible, with huge french windows that overlooked the tuileries and the Eiffel Tower beyond. The room itself was huge and evocative of 'old paris'. The bathroom was big too which is a dream in Paris. The location is fantastic. Seconds from the louvre and the tuileries, a skip away from hot chocolate at Angeliques and a pleasant stroll to the Place Vendome and Blvde Hausseman. Faubourg St Honore is only moments away as well!The Regina is an older style European hotel, it has been used in many films including la femme Nikita. Please stay there if you can, you won't regret ii.
This hote was amazing. Great location, wonderful staff and great breakfast. Definetely recommended.
I stayed at the Regine twice and both times were as good as each other.
Wonderful rooms, large, great breakfast and a wonderful location.
Leaving the Regina was like leaving a part of me in PAris.
I stayed a week at the Regina. It was amazing. Close to everything. I was on the top floor and across my balcony was the most incredible view of Paris. The room was comfortable, service wonderful, and even though I dont speak french I was thankful the employees at the front desk did. They were very helpful and kind to me. I will be back someday!
Inadequate air conditioning
Airconditioning was not adequate - we just returned from a trip with the last 5 nights in Paris. Although I informed the front desk of the problem and a technican came, the room was not comfortable. We were ont he top floor - perhaps they should not have the top floor open in the summer if this is a problem. The room itself was beautiful, clean. The bathroom was large, clean, and full of light. Maid service and service staff were highly responsive. However, due to the air conditioning problem, lack of, I would not stay at this hotel again.
Our special place
This hotel will always have a special place in our hearts. Besides being a charming Beaux Arts beauty, it is the place that my wife and I got engaged. I mention this because it highlights another charm of this little gem -- the staff. They were so helpful with all my plotting and planning and helped make the surprise come off without a hitch. We will visit the Regina again and again over the many years of our marriage!
This Hotel is fantastic. The rooms are great, the people are very friendly and helpful. The food is wonderful and best of all, it's located in the best district in Paris. For first timers you really want to your Hotel to be located in this district. The Louvre is right across the street. The Eiffel Tower is within walking distance. There is also a fantastic bus-tour company 20 steps from the Hotel (this will be very important to you because after any tours that you book you'll be dropped off right at the Hotel). For those of you who heed this advice, say hello to Stefan (the breakfast host at the Hotel restraunt) from Michael and Kitty.
So perhaps my feelings about the Regina were biased by the fab hotel we had just stayed at in Venice, also on frequent guest stay miles. The room at the Danieli in Venice was top of the line. In Paris, at the Regina, our "free" (points) room was on the top floor, so it had that sort of horrible low ceiling you get in Parisian top floor rooms. It was laid out oddly, and was a bit claustrophobic. It was also impossible to get it not too hot or not too cold - the heater was sporadically scalding and/or freezing! The hot water into the bath tub, in a rather nicely petite, white tiled forties-feeling bathroom, was the hottest hot water we had in all Europe. So that was good. But as far as service, well, it was not very good. Forget getting turndown! It was a joy to get towels without calling. The bar was great service and decent priced for cocktails. The breakfast (continental included) was a good deal, and it was nice to have table service versus horrible buffet!! But still, all in all, I was not thrilled.
We had a short stay during our honeymoon trip and were charmed by the Regina Hotel. Full of character, and wonderful location, we found outstanding service.
Last fall, we stayed at The Regina Hotel and absolutely LOVED it!! The location is perfect, right across the street from the Louve & Tuilleries. Fantastic shopping on all surrounding streets. But the best part was our room. It was absolutely incredible. It was a 6 room suite with 20' high ceilings a fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower, excellent restaurant (and room service), service (twice daily maid service) Terry bath robes, great tour booking from the main desk, elegant lounge/bar. It truely was a huge factor in our loving Paris. We can't wait to go back!! Do yourselves a favor and check out this place. Our room rate was $245/night.
