Exhibitions at the Petit and Grand Palais

A travel blog entry by mitchdee07


... of the nine separate "venues" of which this project consists, most of which were so stifling-hot inside that we immediately dashed-out for some fresh air! What we did see was really "off-the-wall" by our standards, but then again, we've been immersed in classical and Renaissance art for the past two-months, so this exhibit left us scratching our heads. However, it wasn't a total loss, as we finally got to see the inside of the Grand Palais!


Reflections on Paris

Cost - Paris is very expensive. I have already detailed the mango incident. I needed to buy more contact lens solution, and was shocked at the price of the $27 Euro price tag ($40 CDN - normally this would be about $12 at home!).

Glasses - Funky, bright coloured and bold frames. Spectacles are not conservative. Maybe they can't afford the contact lens solution so they choose ...

Bon Jour! My Weekend of Enchantment in Paris

... the high end designers like Louis Vuitton and so on. Also the famous Laduree Macaron shop is on this street and my roommate went in to get some, unfortunately the base is almond flour so I couldn't try any of the colorful desserts. She got Salted Caramel, Rosewater, Chestnut, Pistachio and thought that the Caramel was the best! There were really cool gold colored ones which were part of the Nina Ricci collection-- I can't figure out how they dusted them gold but ...

... but also for being the final resting place of Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, and Oscar Wilde among others. And again, glutton for punishment, i am walking across town to get there, another half hour through Bastille and up to the 20e arrondissement. The sun in drifting towards a lower angle - it is 17h15 by the time i reach the gates of the cemetery, leaving me 45 minutes to walk the grounds before closing. It will not be enough - for this is another singularly magical place. My ...

    Average hotel but cracking location.

    About 1 minute walk away from Le Louvre, near the metro and 5 minutes from the bank of the Seine.

    Breakfast not included, but by paying an extra 10 Euro you get a substantial buffet loaded with croissants, cured meats, cheeses, juice, cereals...

    Room was clean, tidy, but nothing special. Had a good nights sleep at the very least!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Timhotel Le Louvre Paris

    3/5 Almost a 4/5


    My husband and I stayed here for four days last week. The first two nights were misreable. We had a tiny, tiny room with barely a bathroom at all, but then we had to move to the fourth floor. Apparently they started rennovations on the top floor and are working down. They moved us to the fourth from the second to start rennovations our room. Once all the rooms are redone, it will be great. The new room (402) was much more spacious, and had newer furniture, carpet, etc. It overlooked the street and had good view. THe location is unbeatable and for the discounted rate, we got more than expected in the new room. The only other downside is the small elavator. If you haven't travelled abroad much, you may be used to elevators in the US. These are not the same. 3 person max.. 2 person w/ 1 luggage or 1 person w/ 2 luggage. And believe me, these are maximums. the breakfast seems a bit overpriced, we just skipped it and stopped at a street vendor selling crepes. Staff has limited English and you can only have ice with breakfast. Then again, the location and the price makes it a good sell. Location, location, location......

    Timhotel ok for budget travel


    Stayed here Oct '04. Location is excellent! NEXT to Louve, short walk to Notre Dame, Ile de Cite, etc.

    Rooms small, somewhat drab.

    Our room had faint smell of urine in one corner (I actually didn't notice it until 2-3 days after check in).

    Only OK


    This hotel is a mix of both worlds. as my wife and I experienced during our six night stay in the middle of October.

    Oui to Timhotel Le Louvre


    The hotel is in the perfect spot next to the night life of Chatlet and the historical Louvre museum. The bathroom was nice and clean. The room was decent size. The staff was excellent in everyway especially when it came to giving directions. The only issue I would have is the fact that it was pretty difficult to find a place to eat during the night. I would definitely go back to Timhotel Le Louvre next time I visit the city of lights.

    Awesome Location


    I was a bit worried about staying at this hotel after reading the review with the roaches. There were no roaches. I stayed in this hotel for 10 days, and I truly enjoyed my stay. The room was a bit small (normal for Paris), The staff was rather nice to us, giving us directions to tourist spots, and answering any questions we had. The location is awesome, you can walk to the Louvre, Rue St. Honores is accessible on foot, as well as many metro stations. The price was great, breakfast was a little expensive. I would defiantly stay at this hotel again with out question.

    Great value and location


    We stayed in a family room (2 kids ages 8 and 6) - just about the only reasonably priced family room we could find in Paris! It was small, but had a double bed and 2 single beds, writing desk, 2 wardrobes and a bathroom with shower. Great value for money. The location was superb - just 5 minutes walk from the Louvre, metro, main tourist areas. English was spoken. For families, we can highly recommend this one.

    TimHotel Le Louvre


    We stayed at the TimHotel Le Louvre last month. The location is fabulous, right by the Palais Royale, and very near the Louvre. The neighborhood feels quite safe for walking and sightseeing. It is only a couple of blocks to the Seine River. Public transportation is easily accessible from this location as there are numerous metro and bus stops in the surrounding vicinity. The price was quite good when booked in an Expedia package. The hotel itself is just passable. The rooms are very small and do not have a bathtub. We were on the 6th floor and the "one person" lift only went to the 5th floor. The desk staff were somewhat rude and did not go out of their way to be friendly to Americans. However, I would stay at this hotel again because of the value and the location.

    Just perfect


    We've spent a wonderful week in Paris and Timhotel definatelly added a lot to our satisfaction. This hotel is a perfect choice for the budget-oriented traveller with higher expectations then a youth hostel. Clean but small rooms, towels and linnens changed every day, cousy bed, breakfast fine, but a bit boring after 6 days;). Tv provided but no minibar and pack you hairdryer too. The staff is adequate and speaks moderate english. The best thing in this hotel is its placement. Just right in the heart of the city, about 300 meters from the Louvre in a not-so-frequent street. /The windows are noise-proof./ Room walls are paper thin so you can clearly listen to you neighbour blowing his nose in the morning. However you'll be so tired after walking a day in paris that it's gonna be the last thing that may annoy you ;)... Nearest metro station is Palais-Royal /about 2 mins walk/ and the famous Rue de Rivoli is just a stonethrow away. The area is full of nice little restaurants and there are a few gorceries, supermarkets nearby. You can get an almost 50% discount if you book via an agency. /try hotelsinnparis.com/ We payed 100 eur for a night that included the breakfast for both of us. no cockroaches at all!

    Basic 2 Star Hotel - Get it cheap on a good deal (epedia?)


    This is a basic 2 star hotel, so don't go expecting anything amazing.

    Indifferent staff; roaches in room


    This hotel has a great location. It's close to the Louvre, right in the center of Paris.

    Unfortunately, the location is all this hotel has to recommend it. We had uninvited tenants in our room, in the form of roaches that were one inch long.

    We thought about telling the management, but given their total indifference to us up to that point, we figured it wouldn't make any difference. For example, they constantly answered our questions (such as a request for a hair dryer) with "I don't know" (in an indifferent rather than apologetic tone) and answered us without looking at us, in one case while they were composing e-mail on a computer.

    Summary: good location, poor service, roaches
