We stayed in the Welcome Hotel in St. Germain, Paris in November 2007 on the recommendation of a friend who'd stayed here a few years back. The hotel is right on the corner of Rue St. Germain and Rue de Seine though the entrance is on Rue de Seine. It's very close to several Metro stops. The hotel has a variety of room types, doubles, twins and singles most with either a tub or shower. Ours had a small shower in the corner of the small bathroom. Rooms are not large but adequate. The elevator is the smallest one ever, room for two people standing behind each other but if you have a large suitcase it will only fit one.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel because there are lots of cafes and bakeries in the area. The restaurant right beside the hotel is good and walking back towards the Seine, you'll find lots of places to eat.
There's no air conditioning so it might be quite warm in summer. Noisy outside on Bl. St. Germain but closed windows were ok to keep the edge off the noise. Rates were pretty reasonable, about 100 euros for a double/twin or a bit more for a slightly larger room. I'd recommend it for it's location and value. Hotel room was clean and the staff were good. Some rooms are accessed by a couple of steps so ask if you have mobility issues.

... up its pace and soon the French countryside was going by at 297kph...that is pretty much 200 miles an hour!! As the scenes flashed by we were impressed by how much of what we saw was farmland. No wonder they have so much good food. We scarcely saw any buildings and few if any towns for most of the journey. The sky was bright and blue and the sun was more than warm streaming through the window of our car. With little to hold our attention, we both ...
I had great plans for Bastille day that didn't quite come to fruition.
Firstly my grand plan of climbing the Arc de Triomphe early was foiled as it was closed for the military parade. Though I must say it was interesting to catch glimpses of the parade and the plane flyover. Also I met a couple of Australian girls -Tayla and Toni and spent the day with them.
Secondly as the roads were closed and streets so busy I ...
... left bank. Stunning views of Notre Dame from the back. The flying buttresses are arching up almost like the legs of a praying mantis. Today was a day we planned for the left bank which is full of antique shops, ...
... cheapest 10 euro seats - let's splurge on the 15 euro seats - this is the Paris Opera after all." For your information, this placed us CENTER STAGE three rows from the ceiling. Thank God we spent the extra 5 euros. From our vantage point we could see the people in the ornate box seats along either side of the theater. When they applauded, it gave the impression of 100's of pigeons fluttering their wings. The seats were deep red velvet with ...

Once at the top, I wrapped my scarf even tighter around my neck and steeled myself for the cutting cold wind. We took pictures of the entire city at dusk and then at sunset and finally the twinkling lights of evening. What an experience. I felt like we were on our honeymoon.
It was time to ...
