... hectic from that point on but in a nutshell we returned to that train station line, waited another 30 minutes, did not get any helpful information (because the woman did not speak english), went to a nearby train station, stood in line for an hour, then they told us this was the wrong line in this station (I guess this is the only station that does things differently), so we went downstairs to another line, waited another hour, then finally got our reservations for a train ...
... I bought an awesome coral colour leather jacket which was a little pricey but it was with some birthday money I got so its all good :-) the girls bought some stuff to which was pretty good. We decided to have maccas for lunch as yesterday was a pretty pricey lunch haha. It was the best maccas I've ever had. Who knew maccas could be sooo good. It was sooo fresh and tasty! Nothing like home. We got to have a photo with these really hot men models ...
... hasn't tasted any other kinds of whisky, as it was well below par. The also had a baileys style whisky, which was much better. It was mid afternoon by the time we made it to the three sisters of Glencoe (Charity, Hope and Faith). This valley was absolutely breathtaking and will definitely go down as some of the best scenery I've seen on the trip. On the way out of Glencoe, the guide pointed out more scenes from Harry Potter, such as the forbidden forest, where Hagrids Hut stood and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Windsor Opera Paris
Just returned from fantastic stay in Paris. We stayed at the Windsor Opera Hotel and we are a little confused with the bad reviews the place have had earlier. The place is no "Hilton", but that's why they don't have 5 stars. Our room was on the top floor and had no view, but it was clean and functional. We had excellent service from the start, when it turned out that our travel agents system had withdrawn our reservation for some still unknown reason. The man at the desk got us a 5! person room in no time and later in the evening the same room for the rest of our stay. The people at the desk were friendly and helpful, the metro was near, excellent food near (recommended by the hotel personnel). So if you don't need a luxury hotel, just a friendly clean place to stay, this is a good option.
Well, this hotel was so bad that we did not even stay in it!!
You Get What You Pay For
The Windsor Opera reminds me of a line from the old British TV comedy "Are You Being Served?" Mr. Humphries asks what one could expect from a one star hotel. Captain Peacock replies that there aren't any no star hotels. This is about as basic as you can get and still be under roof. The price is cheap, but I suspect most tourists wouldn't be satisfied. I recommend either paying a little more or at least finding a more highly rated hotel in this category.
If you want to loose your time, your good mood and your money go to that Winsor Opera hotel. A very aggressive staff trying to trick on you because you are a foreigner and you do not know the rules. No any respect for the clients. They want just your money and if you are not satisfied - then it is your problem, not theirs! A horrible experience!
Discreetly elegant, and very cozy, the Windsor Opera is a charming hotel. Tucked away in a side street, it is conveniently located in the heart of Paris. I didn't have to go far to find major department stores, some wonderful restaurants, and a Metro entrance. Yet, inside the hotel, I could enjoy the quiet atmosphere I needed to rest from the buzz of the city.
Although the web site for this hotel looked superb, be wary. The hotel staff were pleasant enough, but the room (number004) was anything other than the attractive pictures. I paid £98 per night for three nights, the place was hidden down a side street, this could have been a benefit if it was quiet, it wasn't.
Friendly, helpful and charming area
Hard to find but worth it. Most cabbies don't know where it is (on a one way street) but it is quiet, rooms are large enough. Breakfast is included.
Only complaint is the round pillows...some kind of frnch thing... Easy walk to the train station and in the fashion district lots of Furs and textiles.
I had the most wonderful stay at the Windsor. Staff was warm, friendly and personable. It is quaint and I have recommended it several times and my friends have all been pleased. I will be back there for a third time in November.
Lovely stay at Windsor Opera
Have just returned from a weeks stay at the Hotel Windsor Opera and cannot understand the review posted on your site in May. We found the hotel extremely clean,we had a minibar ,tea and coffee facilities,T.V in our triple room.The management were extremely helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.The hotel is in a side street but very close to the metro station.
Down a quiet street, this hotel was nothing like the reviews we read on the web. It was grubby, staff were not friendly, and the facilites described were not available (air conditioning, minibar etc.). We were kept awake until 5am by a large group of other guests which the hotel management did nothing to subdue despite many requests! Would not recommend anyone to stay here.
