Travel Blogs from Paris
Just got off the airport from Rome,Italy and now I am here in Paris,France I am so excited to see all the different architectual designs, and to taste all the good food.
Sorry, I din't have time to write more, bt I had so much fun. Now, I am going to my next destination.
... Louvre's own architectural antiquity... So cool, passages and the stone work, so old... Not Egyptian pyramid old, but old none the less... Egyptian pyramids are for another trip, but they did have some Egyptian displays.
I think I might have missed the Arabic/Islamic areas and the Asian art... Next trip :)
So, I hope you enjoyed my tour of the Louvre, because my feet are killing me and I wore good walking shoes too!
Tired... Will add more pictures ...
... from there to go to the Pere Lachaise cemetry where Chopin, Poulenc, Marcel Marceau, Oscar Wilde and Jim Morrison were buried. It was an interesting place to take photos. We stayed there for a while.
After that we had a coffee and caught the train back to the Opera house so that we could get the hop on hop off bus again. As we went back past the Arc de Triomphe, there was ...
It is 11:42am and we have been on the bus since 9am driving through the French country side. Tour de France is ending today in Paris. We were very close to the end and lots of roads were already blocked off. Our tour guides were afraid that if we left any later in the morning then we would be stuck in Paris all day (how sad right?!) The highway we are on is passing lots of wheat fields and ...
Off to Paris this morning on the TGV. It takes 7-8 hrs to drive, but only 2 hrs 40 on the TGV - very exciting for the kids.
On arriving we found our hotel, had a quick rest and then straight back into it. The kids have become hard-core sightseers now so no time to waste. First stop, Notre Dame- I think the kids were torn between ' not another church' and being fairly awestruck. Then, just ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Victoria Palace Paris
Stayed here for 3 nights with New Year's eve this year and it was great. The marble baths and quiet room was very nice. The staff were always friendly and helpful and the location isn't bad.
The metro station is less than 5 minutes from the hotel, and you can get up to all the major areas very easily on that line.
It is definitely a 4 star hotel. The only caution I would give is that none of the rooms are purely non-smoking, but they try to cover it with some "perfume". It turned out ok for us non-smokers, but its something to keep in mind if you have any major allergy issues.
Honey Mooners Delight!
Romantic! Thats the only word needed to describe our honey moon jr.
suit. Our stay was 6 days long and we wanted for nothing. The staff was helpfull and always smiling. The rooms look exactly like they do on all the web sites. The room service was timely and the food was excellent.
I am extremelly picky when it comes to hotel quality and I went in looking for something to critique ( I have been known to cry my way out of paying for moldy smelly rooms) I had no complaints. The tv was a bit small but as a virgin newly wed I didn't spend much time watching tv anyway! ( wink wink). Great location near shops and eateries. On the whole, we were not impressed with the city of Paris but we would recommend this hotel to friends.
I chose this after reading very positive reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Really close to the Metro (especially St Placide but also Montparnasse and others). Even with heavy suitcases. And on a side street, with pretty views down the road and over an Art Nouveau building from the front. (See below about current buildoing work). All beautifully spotless and shining. Very friendly staff who spoke good English when our French failed, and couldn't have been more helpful.
Perfect for romance
I have stayed here with my french girlfriend. This hotel has class, is quiet and ideal for some romance. You can stay all day in your room without feeling being in a box.The service is excellent and discrete.
Location excellent also. Bars and cafes around the corner. Breakfast good. If you need a hotel to impress a romantic woman, this is the right choice.
DELIGHTFUL. We were immediately impressed with the gracious lobby and two receptions rooms. They were decorated in rich and tasteful brocade.
Visited in July 2003, excellent hotel in a great neighborhood. Walk to St. Germain de Pres and great restaurants/bars/cafes in area. Recommend you try and reserve a room on the 6th floor facing the front of the street. Great terraces and most of the rooms are a good size. Bathrooms are amazing, all marble and the service is impeccable. You also can't beat their breakfast for price and variety. Highly recommend!
I just returned from visiting Paris for the first time. My travel agent booked the Victoria Palace for five nights and I am extremely pleased. The Hotel is wonderful, comfortable, clean, gorgeous! It made my first trip to Paris a great experience. The staff were wonderful, even when I could not speak much French. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and their coffee is the best! They exchanged dollars for Euros without charge, they helped me in everything I needed and did so most cheerfully. Living at the Victoria Palace will make you feel like royalty. The decor is truly French and upscale. Victoria Palace is ideally located, with wonderful shops in the immediate area; Luxumbourg Gardens just down the block, the Metro close by and large stores nearby also. There are good bistros in the neighborhood. I would strongly suggest The Victoria Palace to anyone visiting Paris, for the first or the 15th time. You can't go wrong in this lovely hotel.
Cozy and romantic
My husband and I stayed in a jr suite at this hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary, February 1st -8th. We wanted a cozy and romantic hotel and that is exactly what we got. Our room was beautiful, with ample space, plenty of closets. and extremely clean. (and I'm super pickey about that!) Our room faced the street and had two floor to celing french doors that lead out to a very small balcony, but we never heard any street traffic or noise. The staff was friendly and breakfast was very good. Our only critisisim is that the TV in our room was on the small side and hard to see from bed. But really, when your in Paris, who cares about TV! We had a wonderful stay at this hotel and we would recommend it to any one.
We stayed 4 nights in August 02. The hotel was very quiet and very nice. The bedrooms are large, for French standards. THe location is fine with rue de Rennes within a block.
We got a very good deal: 150 euros for 3 persons including american breakfast! You can't beat that for a 4 stars hotel in Paris.
