(My original title : DISNEYLAND ;ᘳ 2;ȩ 57;8 832;). We were all up and early so we could get to Disneyland when it opened. It took over a hour to get there (but way worth it in the long run). Disneyland Paris is split into 4 sections - Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland. We went ...
Up and out the door at 8.30 today to walk to Eiffel Tower to meet for our tour. We waited until 9.35 then I phoned them to see where they were. Duh I had the wrong day, our tour is booked for tomorrow! Time to regig our day. Walked from Tower to pont Alexander along side the Seine. Walked over the bridge and past the Grande and Petite Palaces to the Champs Élysées . We walked ...
... not in view of the Eifel Tower, we had a very acceptable dinner, with waiters who were trying as had to communicate with us, as we were with them. However, the mint-julep looking drink, when a martini was ordered was a bit of a shock. After dinner we walked along the Seine, on the Left bank, next to the Eifel Tower, before heading back to the room. I had a nightcap with David and Priscilla in their room, after the kids went to bed, and before I said good-night. Bon ...
... and lights on the tower and fireworks of every shape and colour. We have never seen anything like it before and the atmosphere of thousands of people celebrating around the iconic tower was unforgettable.
Walking home was another experience in itself, we just got moved along in the tide of people ...... I must look up how many they estimate attend the fireworks. Not many hours to sleep before our big travel day, but the big night out was so worth it!
... not yet even 11:00am. Deciding that starting my day of sightseeing in Paris could wait until 1:00pm, I slept on & off until then. Refreshed, I head out to my first stop via Metro.
The Saint Denis Basilica is an old old gothic cathedral where French Kings and Queens have been buried from the 7th century on... all of the funeral statues and tombs around the church and in the crypt reminded me of Westminister Abbey in England .. but without any crowds at all. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Terrass Hotel Paris
The hotel was just fantastic. My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon 6/6-6/11 2004. I agree with other reviews ... the location is great the service very friendly ( ask for Danielle ). My recommondations from our experience are the following... 1) ask for a room on the 4/5/6th floor overlooking the city. 2) Do not try to take the metro from CDG airport ... if you have lots of luggage simply take an airport shuttle... 3) There is a nice self serve laundry facility just about 1.5 blocks west and just over the bridge towards Paris some economical small grocery stores. 4) Don't eat at the restaurant on the roof ... food was not that good and very $$$$. The best way by bus into Paris is the 80 and it stops just outside the hotel. The fastest way to get anywhere else is the Metro at the Abbyyss station. Will stay here again everytime we are in Paris. One other recommondation... we took the train to Normandy right after the D Day celebration ( about 2 hours and 20 mins to Bayeux ) and were not disappointed. If you have an extra day .. do it.
My husband and I stayed here from 15/5/04 to 19/05/04 for our seventh wedding anniversary / second honeymoon. Either myself or the booking company had mistakenly booked a twin rather than double room; this was immediately changed to a suite by the hotel at no extra charge and with utter politeness and helpfulness. It was fantastic to open the window and see the Eiffel tower and despite our room being on the corner of the street, it was quiet. Our room was modern and gorgeous and very clean. Great bathroom with very scary power showers! All staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast was very tasty indeed. Location couldnt be beaten - literally two mins from the Blanche metro station and lots of little bistros and restaurants near by with the Moulin Rouge just literally a stroll away. Would definately return.
I took my girlfriend to Paris to propose and stayed at the Terrass after reading the reviews here and we were not dissapointed.
I will preface my remarks by acknowledging that this was the one "value" hotel I chose during our 2-week honeymoon in France. The Terrass was nice enough for Paris standards, and our 2-room suite was certainly large enough to make us comfortable. The furniture was average--the sort you'd expect in a Holiday Inn--and on the whole, the hotel was roughly equivalent to most hotels in that chain. The "king" bed was 2 twins pushed together with a set of slightly scratchy king sheets on top, and since the beds were a little unequal in height, it made for something less than a perfect night's sleep. When I booked the room online, it confirmed my reservation for one of the 2 suites with the balcony and chairs, but when I called the week before to confirm and ask if my request for Room 802 was going to be met, I was informed that both of those suites had already been booked and my reservation for one could not be honored. They did offer me a lesser suite with an Eiffel Tower view but no balcony at a reduced price as consolation. After considering my options, I decided to go ahead and stick with the Terrass, as they seemed genuinely sorry and interested in hosting us. The staff was nice enough, and the view was good, though not as impressive as that of the suites I had wanted. The location was perfect if you like Montmartre, but otherwise somewhat inconvenient, as the nearest Metro was several blocks away in any direction, and the hilly nature of the area made for some steep climbs. All in all, I would recommend the hotel as a good value, and someplace to consider if you want a relatively nice, quiet hotel in an interesting neighborhood, but you're not on a Ritz budget. I would visit it again, but I would probably prefer something a little more upscale and closer to the center of the city, or better yet, in the French countryside.
This was our first time in Paris and we had read all these wonderful things about the Terrass Hotel. So we decided to reserve a room on the Internet for $226 Euros per night. It was very important to us that we had a nice view. We checked in and when I got to my room the view was looking out at a wall so I went back to the reception desk and asked if I could have a suite with a view. They gave me two room keys to view 2 suites they had available. The suite I picked was breathtaking and it cost approximately 300 Euros per night. But was it ever worth it. I had a view of the Eiffel Tower and at night it was breathtaking all lit up.
Wonderful hotel very special
Terrass Hotel was all we hoped for abeautiful room with a veiw,superb food and wonderful freindle staff.
Great Hotel and Wonderful Section of Paris
We loved the hotel and the location. We stayed 3 of our 9 nights in Paris here...wished we'd stayed here the entire time. The room was great - perfect view of the Eiffel Tower and Montmarte was a wonderful area. Nice shopping, wonderful artist colony at the top of the butte.
Great cafes and bistros all around. Dinner at the wine bar across the street - La Petite Syrah - was fantastic (although smokey!) Easy metro access - no problem getting anywhere in Paris from this point. We will stay here again.
Paris at it's best!
The best view in town! The Staff was wonderful and the room was amazing! It was the only time I've been to Paris and not felt like i was sleeping in a closet! Hands down the best hotel for the best price in Paris!
Excellent Hotel witha Great View in a Charming Neighborhood
I stayed at the Terass last November. I booked early enough to get a
high room with a view of the Eiffel Tower. The room was charming large
for Paris Standards (or so I am told) and nicely furnished.
The Hotel is situated in a charming neighborhood close to many fine bistros and shops. The Rate included breakfast which was superb. The Concierge was helpful showing a beginner such as myself how to get around the city.
Wow! One of the best values in Paris
We spent 11 days in Paris on our honeymoon and the Terrass hotel was the 3rd of the four hotels we booked. The best hotel in Montmartre!
Walking distance to the Place du Tertre, Sacre Coeur and the Moulin Rouge. The service was first rate and the room was fantastic. A whirlpool tub big enough for two, double sinks, a very large room and two windows with a view of the Eiffel Tower. The restaurant in the Hotel is first rate as is the lobby bar. We just loved this hotel and would highly recommend it to the vacationing traveler.
