Day 10 – May 10
The immediate area around our hotel is very lively. Rue Cler is the main attraction with its shops, restaurants and markets. We strolled around getting a feel for it. Notice the strawberries standing like well-trained soldiers. Is that because because of the proximity to the French Musee de l'Armee?
After a …
Day 9 – May 9 Aix to Paris
Today was a travel day – so just a couple of comments.
There has been a lot of rain in France, and as a result, a lot of high rivers and flooding, much of which we could see as we flew by on the train. We say “flew”, because at around 200 mph, we are virtually flying.
Day 11 – Paris
In preparation for our cruise, we started the day at the laundromat.. Being old pros, we had little trouble andrequired no assistance this time. Wishy washy washerwoman
After a quick lunch, we took the short walk from our hotel over ro Les Invalides
to visit the Musee de l’Armee, one of the largest …
Since we've not seen that much sun this trip, today was a welcome change and made for a great day.
We started the day off having to change hotels from the Hilton in the 8th arrondisement (city district) to the Hotel Relais-Bosquet in the 7th district. We had our breakfast at the Hilton and checked out and took a taxi to our new hotel. Were …
We had previously made reservations for entrance to the Eiffel Tower for 9:30, which is when the Eiffel Tower opens. However, after visiting yesterday and seeing the enormous lines, we decided to head over early just to be sure. We arrived at about 8:45 and the line (for those without tickets yet) was already through the entire queue and snaking …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We have stayed at the Hotel Relais Bosquet Paris the past two days and will be checking out tomorrow morning, much to our dismay. We wish we could stay here longer.
The service and amenities provided by the staff here are outstanding. While I suspect each room is different, we were very happy with our room, our view, and all extras provided by the staff here. We arrived quite a few hours before normal check in, and were expecting to just ask for them to hold our luggage for us when, to our surprise, we were able to get into our room right away.
We had a partial view of the Eiffel Tower - an added bonus. The room had everything needed and was very comfortable. We loved having windows that opened to get fresh air and also hear the sounds of the streets. We also loved the rolling shutters that provided light blocking, but also some ventilation when we wanted privacy but didn't want to have to close up completely.
The staff went the extra mile at every turn and were more friendly than anywhere else we've stayed all over the world.
And, of course, the location is about the best you could ask for. Great restaurants nearby, walking to Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides, Napoleon's Tomb, and the Rodin Museum are all well worth being in this neighborhood.
We will definitely come back to Hotel Relais Bosquet the next time we're in Paris and we hope that is sooner rather than later.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Relais Bosquet Paris
Charming Hotel, Excellent Location!
My husband and I stayed at the Relais Bosquet for 3 nights in March of this year. We absolutely loved our room with a view of the top of the Eiffel Tower! The hotel is located in an excellent part of town, within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and other Paris sites. There is an excellent bread/pastry shop right outside the hotel where we enjoyed pain au chocolate pastries each morning for breakfast...YUM! The only negative about the hotel was the protests that occurred daily during out stay right outside the hotel...they just kind of left you with an uneasy feeling. That said, I would still recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a unique charming hotel in Paris.
My daughter and I just returned from our stay at the Hotel Relais Bosquet and I have to agree with all the excellent reviews. Gerard, the English-speaking owner, couldn't do enough for us: reservations at restaurants, calling taxis, giving us the weather forecast, etc. He was terrific.
Impressed with Hotel's Quick Response to E-mail!
We are planning our first trip to Paris. We sent an e-mail late last night inquiring about this hotel, asking specific questions. When we woke up early this morning, we had already received a response, answering all of our questions. Needless to say we are very impressed with the staff of this hotel, and are looking forward to staying with them!!
My husband & I stayed here for 4 days in September 2003 and were tremendously happy with the hotel. We were debating between 2 hotels and after reading these reviews, decided on Relais Bosquet and were very happy we did.
Loved Relais Bosquet
TERIFFIC! Just spent seven days at the Relais Bosquet. I can't say enough about this fine hotel. LARGE rooms @(higher rate) 165 euros, quiet,clean&fine staff. Room #12 was just great. Location is outstanding with plenty of places for breakfast,lunch&dinner. Metro right around the corner. Nice residential location with FRIENDLY people everywhere.
This place is great. The location is outstanding, on a quiet street off the fun market street Rue Cler. It's about midway between the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides. The staff were really nice and helpful, and our room was so comfortable. The air conditioning is good and powerful. The bathroom and bed are great and the automatic dark blinds made the room so dark you could sleep all day. Of course, that would a shame in a city like this.
Great Neighbourood Hotel
We stayed here from May 17th - 24th largely based on our internet research and reviews on this site and weren't disappointed. The rue Cler neighbourood is great place to base your Paris visit from and the Metro is closeby. Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful despite our poor French! (they speak fluent English). We highly recommend a picnic lunch (from rue Cler shops) at the park by the Eiffel Tower which is a short walk from the hotel.
Very Nice for the Price
My wife, 10 month old daughter, and I extended our stay in Paris at this hotel after staying on business at a four star hotel. We loved the quaintness and comfort of this hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, and its proxomity to the Rue Cler is great. We look forward to staying here again this year.
Very nice little hotel. Helpful staff. In an excellent neighborhood with plenty of good restaurants and shops. Within easy walking distance of the Eiffel Tower & Napoleon's tomb. Around the corner from the tube.We would definitely stay there again!
Very french and quite perfect
We stayed at the Relais Bosquet from Feb 16th through the 19th 2003. We really researched most of the hotels in Paris using the trip advisor website quite often. Out of 40 hotels that we studied, this is the one that we chose. We felt very welcome and the staff even spoke some english which was quite comforting. Our room was quite comfortable, we were on the 6th floor and had a view of the Eiffel Tower. Quite spectacular. Wow! This hotel is well situated to everything on the Left Bank and close to a wonderful restaurant called La Serre. We would stay here again and thought the accomdations were lovely and well decorated. Have breakfast at the hotel at least once. They have some lovely offerings. Enjoy!
