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.

... it oriented me.
After the tour, my achilles was still sore, so I got a Velib bike - named because Velo is french for bike, and liberty is for the liberty to go where you want to fast by bike. The cost is 1.70 for the day as long as you only have it for under 30 minutes at a time. You can dock the bike, and then get it out again after a 2 min wait, and would only have to pay the 1.70. I did that a few times, but my last time I found it harder t find a ...
... main ingredient of most of the picnics! Don't know where all the trash was going as well. There were people also playing bocche ball and another similar game. It looked like the action place for that neighborhood. As we were walking along we also saw something we had never seen before....a concrete structure with four to five slots and it was an outdoor toilet for men! Guess better than killing all the bushes in the area. Evidently this ...
... t have a spare $50,000 for a watch so didn't really do any shopping. And now Paris... We have arrived to a very wet Paris....found our way on the metro in peak hour with our cases to our B and B. Hard to find. 3 rooms as part of an apartment. Very French and very chic BUT very strict. Rules galore. No eating in the room. No soap in the shower. Have to use a gel. No locking of doors when you leave the room. But he is very nice and helpful. But ...
I wondered if we had made a mistake, as the waiter had a dirty apron, and he sort of slapped a placemat and cutlery down, along with a menu. Ron noticed a plat du jour, so we decided to have that - chicken kebabs, but not as we know them. Great chunks of thigh meat and pears (maybe glace or dried and then cooked in the sauce) served with mashed potato, bread and lots of sauce. (No greens!) It was amazing. ...
It's finally arrived. It's time to pack the bags and get out of town tomorrow. The past 34 days has been an incredible trip for us.
We made our way by subway today (buying the correct tickets this time) on the way to Notre Dame Cathedral as our starting point. Once we arrived at the appropriate station we came up to ethereal and magical Saint Chapelle which has been hailed as one of the greatest architectural masterpieces of the Western world - ...
