... places in one day - we walked so much! We walked on the street of Champs-Elysées from Arc de Triomphe all the way to the Louvre. It's a very long walk but we really enjoyed it, even the kids. There was not a boring moment along the way... lots of people, boutiques, shops, cafes and beautiful landscapes. The Avenue des ...
... a myriad of people surrounding it.
After coming home to rest and then have one final dinner with my relatives, I saved the best for last. That is, I bought a ticket to ascend to the top of the Eiffel Tower. While the line for buying a ticket went very fast, it was far different trying to get to the top. You cannot go directly from the bottom ...
... white and wood flooring with about 20 of the large marble sculptures. Really these works stand alone and need nothing else to catch your eye. By the time I had finished exploring this museum I was on my way back to loving this incredible city. The next day put me into a full infatuation, but more about that next post.
When I booked this portion of the trip I was a bit at a loss of where to stay. I wasn't sure if I would be utterly done with ...
... to catch the last van back to the Metro station. Jeffrey left us to go meet some other French friends of his for drinks and dinner, so Daddy and I headed back toward the hotel for a late dinner at Terminus. We both had the amazing onion soup au gratin, then I had foie gras and crepes for dessert. Our server, Nicolas, was adorable and helped us decipher the menu since we didn't have Jeffrey there to interpret!
... to discover several different groves that are completely hidden from view when looking from the palace. These groves are like small, individual gardens & each served their own purpose. The king & queen each had their own private gardens, there was one for concerts & dancing and many otheres. While we were exploring, the palace had classical music playing throughout the entire garden and the music transports you back in time to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pavillon Villiers Etoile Paris
I read a couple comments from other reviewers and I agree with most of them. The hotel is indeed clean, the rooms are small, the staff are friendly, and the location is convenient. The hotel is on a small street off of a side street (with daily street market), which is off of the main blvd (traffic and subway stop). Being a NYC guy, I loved the area because it is quiet, yet convenient to the subway station. It reminds me of being in Upper West Side. All in all, it's a great, inexpensive hotel in a convenient and safe (but not hip) neighborhood.
All pictures below are of the side street on or near the hotel.
Loved this Hotel!
This hotel was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and the hotel rooms were very clean. The rooms were a bit small, but definitely a bargain for what you were getting. The continental breakfast was very tasty, and if you ask to have it delivered as room service rather than go to the dining room, you can do that as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and it has a great location too!
We stayed at this hotel in October and while the location was fine, the hotel itself left much to be desired. Most of the staff simply ignored us and when we did interact, we were left wondering if our request was going to be handled.
We stayed here for just two nights but found the staff friendly and the room welcoming, everything we needed for a romantic weekend away.
I just came back from a girls' trip. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. I would say all of the previous reviews have merit, but we thought it was great for the money. The rooms are small, but I think all 3 star rooms are small. It was clean. Our rooms weren't air conditioned, but that wasn't a problem the end of September. Our room also had a fan which was a real plus because it did get noisey at night. Definitely take some earplugs. The breakfast was typical, but good. They also had a table in a courtyard where we had our own wine and cheese one evening.
Nel complesso davevro buono
Hotel situato in una posizione estremamente piacevole e ben collegata. Le camere sono un pò piccole e l'arredo è un pò vecchiotto ma la pulizia è eccellente. Ottima la colazione. Per il prezzo pagato siamo assolutamente soddisfatti. Nel complesso lo consiglio a chi desidera una sistemazione soddisfacente a prezzi ragionevoli!
Hotel was very clean and the staff was nice but it just made me think "motel 6". If we had been staying for several days, I would probably have switched to somewhere else. It did not have air conditioning which was a disappointment in August but did have two huge windows that opened wide and was not noisy at night. Only had two extremely small (hand) towels so had to go down to lobby and get some more.
Located in Villier close to the Metro, access to the central parts of Paris were easy (Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Champs Elysee). The Rue Levi at the bottom of the road has an excellent example of a market selling all kinds of fruit, vegetables, cheese, bread and various other non food shops.
I would not recommend this hotel. Location is nice, but staff were very unfriendly--almost rude. The facility is run down and rooms are very, very small. The breakfast area is dirty, and located near the toilets---very unpleasant. Even by european standards, the price far exceeds any value this hotel provides.
Great location but scary at first - just on a little, not so scenic, street. However, DO visit the market (almost daily from morning til night, except holidays) on Levis Street at end of block. We had many a meal by stopping off there for bread, cheese and wine (all from different shops, of course!) and great fastfood Vietnamese also. The Parc Monceau is an easy 3 block walk and huge and gorgeous - great to take your picnic lunch to.
