TravelPod Member ReviewsWelcome Hotel Paris
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.

... in some more caffeine to fortify ourselves for the afternoon. A gentle walk back toward our hotel, stopping at Indianna Bar in Boulevard Poisonniere for a 5 o'clock drink (at nearly 6pm by this stage) - half price beer and cocktails tempted us sorely - and then onto a Thai restaurant near our hotel for dinner. We were the only patrons but the food was light and very tasty and we all enjoyed it.
Over 9kms walked in the day and none of us seemed to ...
... back to about Belgium, so we took a few happy snaps at the surface, then scurried off to the metro to head to the Champs-Élysées. We've been a couple of times before, so whilst a little disappointed we didn't have time to wait for the queue to wind down, it was stil cool to be standing under it. At the Champs-Élysées we headed to the Louis Vitton store for the standard Kylie ritual of not being able to make a decision on buying an LV bag or not. Do I, don't ...
... is Hungarian royalty?? Just got back to our room to freshen up and found four swans right outside our window, just in case France wasn't beautiful enough... Returned to boat and set sail. Enjoyed another delicious lunch and went to the top deck to practice our putting or as they say, "puting" and before we knew it, we were already in Macon, which is (I know this is going to be a real shocker) another picturesque little French town. We decided to take the bicycle trip along the river ...
it has drizzled on and off all day until about 6pm and then it rained a plenty. Thank heavens for ponchos on our ride.
Walked thru Notre Dame after the ride, it's huge!
Already 8.30pm and time to find dinner on the way home in one of thousands of restaurants, then bed as we have instantly hit the wall!
Tomorrow will be here soon enough.....
... from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. The Gardens of Versailles are absolutely amazing, meticulously manicured lawns, flowers, sculptures and fountains which are located throughout the garden. There are some 200,000 trees, 220,000 flowers planted annually, 50 fountains, 620 water jets and a 5 km Grand Canal ...
