... offered the ring up to me and I immediately said, ‘That’s not mine.’ He then offered to give me the ring. I laughed and walked off.
The gold ring scam is a simple one. Pretend to pick up a valuable looking ring near the mark using a little sleight of hand. Then, ask the mark if the ring belongs to them. At this point there are two possible outcomes. The mark will lie and say that the ring belongs to them. At which point the scammer will ask for a reward. Or, ...
We left Sunbury in the morning and headed for King's Cross/St. Pancras train station. We then picked up our tickets for the TGV, waiting a bit in the queueing area, and then boarded the very last car in the train for our assigned seats. We has a small onboard meal, and settled in for the 2h20m trip to Paris. When we exited the Chunnel, Heather asked: "Was that it? Are in in France?" It was a quick trip of only about 20m ...
... that night. We then caught up for a little, which included then telling me about Barcelona (which I will be going to in a couple of weeks with my Dad). We then all then went out for all you could eat Asian, which was great, as we were all starving. Following this, we all went to bed early, as we had to get up early and organize our trip to Ibiza. Things of Note: - Lucky Christmas sent me a photo of the hotel in Valencia, because otherwise I would not been in the right area for the ...
... Military Museum which is the home of Napoleon’s tomb. Before viewing the tomb we took in the museum, a vast collection of armor and weaponry from the 16-19 centuries. Also exhibits following the French in World War one and two. Then the military chapel, just as grand as any other ancient chapel we had already been in. When we made our way to Napoleon’s tomb, I had already formulated a picture in my mind of what it might be like. I had read a review some where that ...
... it wasn’t closed this time, we decided to walk through. There was the most beautiful Christmas tree I’ve ever seen inside, lit up with Swarovski crystals.
After a 30 minute cat nap and freshening up at the hostel, we decided that we wanted to see the city by night. Since we couldn't see the top during the day, we went back the Eiffel Tower again. Every hour, on the hour, the Eiffel Tower sparkles and lights flicker for about 5 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Splendid Etoile Hotel Paris
I'm a believer in these reviews. The hotel was more than we expected. The staff was very helpful, rooms were large and quiet. Great views of the arc de triumph. We will stay here again, no question about it.
Fantastic - just back and booking to return asap
Just back from the hotel Splendid etoile, we loved it! We stayed in room 407 which was a superior room, which had 3 balconies & Beautiful view of the arc d'triomphe. The room was immaculate and a very good size, with large bathroom, the shower was very powerful and the mini bar was well stocked. There is room service available at the hotel, but it is on a great location if you want to eat out. The room was beautiful, comfortable and well soundproofed. I would not stay anywhere else in Paris but the Hotel Splendid etoile, as it was simply perfect.
I spent a solid 7 hours on the internet searching for the perfect hotel in Paris. I was very dubious about the photos as so many hotels "exagerate" their benifits but on arriving and being escorted to the room all doubts went. The hotel was everything I had hoped it would be.
Selecting a hotel on the web is a bit of a hit or miss affair. The pictures on the websites often look better than the actual deal. You never know how old the photos are and accommodation can get quite shabby after a few years! However, the Splendid Etoile was as good as the website promised, if not better. We had a very comfortable stay and were impressed with this venue.
We have just returned from a long weekend and enjoyed every minute of this hotel. The room was extremely clean with a great bathroom. We requested extra pillows on our way out one evening and they were in the room on our return. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location could not be better as you are right on a metro stop. Views from the room were spectacular as we could see both the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Sound proofing was excellent as was the air conditioning. We opted for the continental breakfast which we thoroughly enjoyed especially since it was served until midday. All in all, a great find and we will certainly go back there.
Had a wonderful stay here recently.
Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable.
Hotel is directly opposite the Metro as well as the Air France bus to Charles De gaulle airport ( anyone can use this not just Air France oassengers.
had a room that overlooked the Arc De triomphe...great!!
Wonderful view and romantic stay
This was a magical stay stunning views of the arc de triomphe (make sure you request this when booking) from the bedroom, clean accomodation and friendly service. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a central romantic stay.
Great Location, great hotel
We moved to this hotel after a disappointing experience at the Hotel Napoleon 5 minutes walk away. Service was extremely friendly as soon as you walk in the door. The concierge on duty was extremely helpfull and friendly. Location was perfect just down a minute from the Arc du Triomphe and the metro right at the door. The room was clean, elegant and well appointed. The internet was easy to use and set up. Bathroom was great. The bar was small and service a little slow as the bartender was busy talking on the phone much of the time but otherwise well appointed. Rate was 240 Euros which we felt was more than reasonable and a bargain compared to some of the other hotels we checked out. We would stay again, great hotel, service, location, and friendly.
We opted for the lower priced hotel on our tour - AND WON BIG TIME!
We booked a tour to London and Paris, both times opting for the lower priced hotel. In London, it was "ok". In Paris, it was fabulous. The staff are extraordinarily courteous.
The walk to the Champs Elyees was just 3 - 5 minutes, and we saw the Arc de Triumph from our balcony.
The breakfast room is friendly and the metro stop is literally at your doorstep. The more expensive tour put people near the louvre museum - but for culture and an enjoyable evening, sit on on the Champs Elyees and then - and only then, will you have experienced Paris.
I will stay at this hotel the next time without question.
Lovely, excellent service
This hotel was lovely and elegant. Several of us stayed here - many rooms had a beautiful view of the Arc D'Triomphe. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. Convenient location right next to the metro and RER. We will definitely return.
