... for that particular moment), so the only reason I'm alive is because Gosia was crawling behind me slower than a snail so she had no energy to kill me for it what's so ever. In general the Hostel is close to Eiffel Tower but at that moment nothing seemed to be close enough for us. We managed at the end. On the way we got some food and wine and ate it on the floor in a room...I know, no comment, but we just couldn't care less. We just wanted to eat and drink. ...
... to the appartment dreading the carrying of the luggage through this heat, but found it was actually easier this time...I must be getting stronger from all the walking! Quick kisses from Mika and I was off to the Gare Est where I found my train with surprising ease, and was pleased to meet my couchette companions. There are six of us in this little sleep compartment with not much room to move around but we will make do. Et puis, au revoir ma chere Paris. Je me ...
Today was our last day in Paris. We enjoyed a Seine River Cruise, climbed the Eiffel Tower, and toured Notre Dame. Another great day!! To answer grandpa's question, Alex wore his Hawkeye sweatshirt and got a "go Hawks" outside of Notre Dame. Uncle Mark, the boys have the following updates for you. Tyler: ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Saint Christophe Paris
Lovely little hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Great location - close to a Metro stop and walkable to Notre Dame, Pantheon and Jardin Des Plantes. Rue Mouuffetard is very touristy, but there are some good restaurants and bars there. For a quality meal go to the 'Burning Bush' or Le Buisson Ardent (25 Rue Jussieu) - might need to book though!
The hotel was very clean, bathroom was perfect. We were on the groundfloor, a little noisy in the mornings but if you're an early riser (unlike me) this should be no problem. Breakfast was big and ideal. The hotel is a perfect location just beside a metro station.
What more can you ask for???
Saint Christophe great place
Excellent hotel, nice people at the front desk, helpful, good location, good price.
Hotel Saint Christophe-a great find!!
We stayed at Hotel Saint Christophe this weekend(11/03) and thought it was really lovely. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were really cute. We also had a really nice little balcony. The location couldn't have been better-we were a five minute walk to the Notre Dame and great restaurants up on the hill. We will DEFINATELY stay here again!!
Great for the price!
I have stayed in many Paris hotels and this one was above average for the price. I would definitely return. The bed was comfortable with good quality linens and pillows. The room was clean and the bathroom was nice, and had a shower curtain! (A Paris rarity!) The staff was extremely friendly and spoke English. The only possible downside to this hotel was location. The immediate surroundings didn't have quite as many quaint restaurants and shops as in the more touristy areas of St. Germain. To some that may be viewed as a bonus, since it was definitely quieter than many places I've stayed. You do have easy access to the 7 and 10 metro lines, so it is easy to get to the more happening spots quickly. Overall a good experience and I'd recommend this hotel a lot.
My wife and I recently stayed a week in Paris (October 2003) and Hotel Saint Christophe was an excellent basecamp for our exploration. The rooms were comfortable and breakfast adequate, but there are very few places this close to the center of the city for the price. The hotel staff was excellent and always helpful. Make sure you take the time to walk through the Jardin des Plantes on your way to the RER (at least once. The Metro is closer though). We look forward to coming back to Paris and staying here.
We stayed at the Saint Christophe in September, and we enjoyed ourselves.
Our room was sweet, with a window overlooking the side street. While it was small, that's par for the course, and there was definitely enough room (bed, desk, closet, suitcases). After all, you don't want to hang out in your room in Paris anyway!
The bathroom was *terrific*!! Very clean, a good size (not doing feats of acrobatics to move around), a good shower, a pretty window, marble & new-looking ceramic. Excellent!!
The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our last morning was hectic, trying to get a last-minute cab to the airport, and the fellow at the desk was a tremendous help and really came through for us!
The negatives: The breakfast was...not terribly exciting. (The coffee was not very good, I'm sorry to report.) For both quality and selection, you're better off getting breakfast at one of the nearby places on Rue Monge or somewhere. (There's a pastry shop right across the street, btw!)
The only bad thing was that our room smelled a bit funky, like the carpet needed to be cleaned. I had some Febreeze with me (a travel must!), but it didn't do the trick 100%.
Apart from this, however, we thought the room was great and the location was very nice. Pretty quiet, but definitely within walking distance to everything. It's very good value for the rate!
Great Staff-Great Bathtubs
During a bitterly cold, snowy 10 days in Paris it was so nice to come back late in the afternoon to such a gracious "home". The staff was helpful and creative; rooms average size, bathrooms wonderful. We had a special price of $100.00 including breakfast. Block away from Rue Mouffetard.
Nice place to stay
A nice small hotel. My room was quite large for a single in Europe. Nicely decorated. Good sized bathroom with nice big tub. Clean and well maintained. Friendly English speaking staff. Much nicer than what I got for more money in London.
Walking distance to 2 metro stops. Not particularly close to any tourist sights, but that makes the neighborhood less crowded. Can walk to the Pantheon, or it's a longish walk to Notre Dame. Many bakeries, grocery and other shops nearby. Just down the street from the Jardin des Plantes, good for a nice walk to see the flowers. There is a market in the Place Monge (once a week I think). As a single woman, I felt safe in the neighborhood.
syayed at the hotel st christophe, around the corner from place monge, great place to walk around, restaurants on the rue mouftard are great, especially the cafe verlaine. great cd shop there. 3 cds for ten bucks. got some great old french recordings.
