... s character. It's also the square where nobles and King Louis XVI and his wife Marie-Antoinette were made "one foot shorter off the top" with help from a guillotine in 1793. The obelisk, the Obelisk of Luxor, is 3000 years old and once marked the entrance to the Luxor Temple. It was placed on the spot where the guillotine once stood in 1836 to commemorate the thousands of people killed in the revolution.

... familiar face in the city. During dinner, I learned that Helene had a lot of experience with the French healthcare system since her father was a doctor and she was interested in working in a hospital. She also had a lot of experience with the issue of aging in France through her studies and personal experiences with her grandparents. She talked about trying to get her grandparents involved in an Alzheimer’s support group and other ...
... the river as a sign of their eternal love. Lisa decided it would be a cute idea to buy a padlock from a nearby store, wrote '3 L's' on it, and locked it on the bridge. Luckily the lock came with three keys, so we were each able to throw one into the river. So until someone cuts it off or it gets hidden by the next wave of locks, the lock will be there for all to see as a memory of our trip.

Anyway back to Thursday morning and we set out, brolly in hand to visit the Louve, walking amongst commuters, past palaces and government buildings, monuments and architectural delights along the length of the rue.

... at Sacre Coeur. Once the most famous tourist attraction in Paris, this amazing church sitting on the hill of Montmarte was still buzzing with sightseers, pilgrims and gypsies. From the moment we left the hustle and bustle of the streets the Sacre Coeur captured our view! An amazing display of gothic architecture laden with domes, arches and gargoyles, combined with a gorgeous and expansive garden created a beautiful sight to behold as we climbed the stone steps leading up the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Relais Saint-Honore Paris
This hotel is small, only 13 rooms, very new looking, and clean. The staff is helpful and friendly. They speak perfect English. Our room was beautifully decorated. It had a modern bathroom with a great hairdryer. Also, it had a seperate toilet room. It was very close to the Louvre and we walked to everything. It is in the 1st. which is very convenient. Very quiet at night. The Tuileries Gardens are just around the corner with a metro stop right there. We had a fabulous time in Paris and your hotel does make a big difference. As for the air conditioning...it was very cool and quiet.
A great small 13 room hotel! The location cannot be beat: accross from The Louvre and walking distance to the Latin Quarter and the Eiffel Tower. A big plus was the helpful staff -they couldn't do enough for us. A computer is available for the guests and breakfast can be deliered to your air-conditioned room.
Highly recommended this hotel
Clean, bright, and comfortable
Great small hotel located super close to museums and a short walk from the amazing Paris subway system. The bed was comfortable, and the room was very modern. Although it is located on a bustling street (a lot of nice cafes, sandwich shops and clothing stores), my boyfriend and I never had problem with noise. Great shower (and towel warmer!) and wonderful maid service. The internet was fast and the concierges were extremely helpful. Overall, an excellent stay at an excellent hotel.
Perfect place to stay in Paris -Relais Saint Honore Hotel
This hotel was perfect. Stayed in Room 301 - very quaint. Perfect for us - the room was very clean and had fresh towels everyday. Lots of closet space, had a fridge, desk and flat screen tv on the wall! The staff was very friendly and spoke english very well. Had some great suggestions for dinner. We had free access to the internet in the lobby which allowed us to be in contact with our kids at home. The room was small but definitely big enough for us and all of our stuff! Best of all, it was so convenient to the metro, walking distance to the Louvre and believe it or not, we even walked back from Eiffel Tower after a long day of sightseeing....would not recommend that on the feet!! Absolutely would recommend this hotel to anyone!!
Very comfortable and fresh
We stayed here for a week in May 2005 and enjoyed our stay immensely. The hotel is small but charming, and the fact that everything is fairly new means it feels fresh, clean and light. Everything worked, so there were no problems with lights, hot water and so on. The internet terminal downstairs was normally available, and the desk staff were helpful and good-humoured. There were no tea/coffee-making facilities in our room, which is pretty normal in France, but Australians who are used to this should be aware that they'll need to go out for coffee. All in all, we are very happy to recommend this little hotel, which is within easy walking distance of the Louvre and other major attractions.
Great Little Hotel
In April, my wife and I stayed a week at the Relais Saint-Honore, a small, charming hotel conveniently located on Rue St. Honore near the Louvre, the Palais Royal and the shopping of Place Vendome and Place Madeleine. The staff is fluent in English, knowledgeable and helpful. At 190 Euros a night, the rate is definitely reasonable for a hotel of this caliber in Paris. I highly recommend the Relais Saint Honore.
WHAT A GEM
We found this lovely boutique hotel by accident and are so thankful we came across it. We stayed for 5 wonderful nights in a most comfortable bed. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and our room had everything we needed. Most hotel rooms in Paris are small but this one was big enough for us. The decor of the rooms are fantastic and as it is only one year old everything is still new and fresh. We are looking forward to our next trip to Paris and another stay in this delightful hotel.
Perfect Paris Small Hotel
We loved this hotel. We started our Paris stay at Hotel Brighton and did not like it-- good price for the money, but the paper thin walls made it impossible to get rest. Therefore, we moved to the Le Relais Saint-Honore and were very happy we did. The rooms are small for U.S. standards, but typical for Paris. The hotel is brand new and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. The location is perfect for tourists (about a 10 minute walk to the Louvre). The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is very small (I think about 13 rooms). There is free internet service and a computer in the lobby for your use. I would definitely stay here again.
good quiet location 5 - 10 minutes walk to Louvre, friendly helpfull staff with good english, clean, interesting, stylish room, not cheap but reasonable price. Would return to this small hotel. No restaurant and whilst you can take breakfast in the room there are plenty of spots within five minutes to have whatever you like quite cheaply.
The real Charm of Paris
This is a brand new "hotel de charme" where we had a great holiday last week ! The location is perfect ,being in one of the most beautiful and elegant quartier of Paris , very close to Tuileries Metro station and at easy walk to all main Paris attractions . The hotel is furnished in nice french decoration and managed by Mr Nicolas , a very kind and friendly man who will try to make any effort to make your holiday as a memorable one .
many nice shops and restaurants and cafes nearby and the use of free internet in the lobby made it even more special . Considering the overpriced rates of Parisian hotels this is a true bargain . I will stay there again and will send all my friends .
