Long evening sunset fiery red, quite spectacular from the terrace, then at 10:00 pm the tower goes all spangles, glittering lights, and searchlight beam. Glitter repeats on the hour.

We seem to have settled on Volvic as everyones favourite these days. For each litre you buy they provide 15 litres of fresh water to those in need through Unicef. It makes us feel better for buying water!

Unfortunately we didn't get to go to the Louvre as we had planned, because we had to get to the airport early in case our flight was cancelled. :-( Now we are sitting at the airport, waiting for our flight which has not been cancelled (yet!) and hoping that all will go as planned, because this is the last flight to Istanbul for the day, and our tour begins at 6:30 am tomorrow!

By the time the game had started, Jay, Cam, Braddles and Blake (or B-La-Ke as we call him), had arrived (with Bill and Madds not too far behind them). It was good to have a bit of a reunion of what remained other Contiki group. During the game, the atmosphere was unbelievable, as was the stunning amount of people there, who had obviously chucked a sickie to be there. As you all probably know, the game was an absolute bell-ringer ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Timhotel Nation Paris
We stayed at Timhotel Nation just a few days ago, and found it to be a really friendly little hotel in a handy location.
We stayed at the hotel for 4 days and found it to be a clean simple hotel, the room was quite small but the amenities were good and we didnt spend much time in the room anyway.
I was at the Timhotel Nation twice, once for 10 days in November, 2004, and once for 10 days in March, 2005. My second stay was less than pleasant. There was the same frosty, stone-faced woman with a somewhat snotty attitude at the desk, as usual, but
We had a double room here for 3 nights in April. The room was quite small, but had everything that we needed. The bathroom was very clean with a good shower. Our room was at the back of hotel overlooking the small garden/courtyard area so it was also very quiet. The room had television and tea/coffee making facility. The hotel do offer breakfast, about 8 euros but we just used the patisserie right beside the hotel and brought croissants etc back to the room. The Avron Metro is right beside hotel, and Nation or Buzenval are also very close. We left our luggage in the lockable baggage room on the last day and did not have to vacate room until midday - we found staff to be very pleasant and helpful. We booked direct with hotel website and got a good deal. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a good value budget hotel.
Took the train from Brussels to Paris. The Thalys goes unbelievably fast, and arrives at Gare du Nord train station, which is big and confusing. We made our way to the Metro to arrive at the Timhotel Nation, in the 20th aroindessment (sp?) of Paris.
Great Value Hotel!
I thought this was a great hotel - super close to the Avron Metro stop on #2 line. This hotel is better than most at this price level. Very clean and the staff is extremely pleasant. Book online with Timhotel for the best price - we paid 60 Euro for a double over Easter. If you come from CDG, take the RER B to RER A at Chatelet, then the metro to Nation to Avron. At CDG they will tell you to take RER B to La Chapelle and transfer to Line #2 - it is a long walk with luggage through La Chapelle, while at Chatlet the RERs are on the same level and and across from each other.
Clean and Comfortable Chain Hotel
Timhotel Nation is situated on a street well-supplied with local shops and is within walking distance of several Metro stations. Our twin room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was spotless and there was a view out over the rooftops of Paris. If you sleep in and miss the Continental Buffet Breakfast, there are several patisseries and grocery shops close by and also a very good supermarket. Book through an online agent rather than through the Timhotel website for a good deal.
Excellent budget hotel
I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the room was clean, the bathroom was a shrine to hygiene, the breakfast area was bright and airy and the continental fare serviceable. The hotel is not close to many tourists attractions, but the Avron Metro station is just a few feet from the front door. I would definitely stay here again.
Great little hotel
i just returned from my 3rd trip to paris.. my daughter, brother, sister in law, and I stayed at the timhotel nation. This little hotel was great. There is a metro stop steps away ( avron on the #2 line) with a corresponding station one stop away (nation). There is a fantastic pattisserrie next door.. shop early, they always sell out! The rooms were exceptionally clean, and although small by usa standards, actually nice size by european. The breakfast room was nice and well supplied with fresh french breads (nothing else like it in the world!) and other breakfast items. The staff was most helpful with any questions we had. We had a great time and I would most definitley stay there again.
Clean, comfortable and convenient
Go to this hotel expecting the rooms to be small. Rooms are small and modest but are clean and comfortable. We had a two-night stay but would have been happy to stay a few nights more. Close to bus and trains and easy access by train especially to all the usual tourist attractions. Reception staff helpful and spoke sufficient English. Continental breakfast was fine. Rooms at the back are quieter so ask for a room off the street preferably in refurnished section overlooking small garden. Lots of small shops and cafes in the area. No tea or coffee making facilities and no mini refrigerator.
