... astonished, I didn't even need to present my passport or take off my bulky cardigan to go through the scanner. We arrived to our terminal and were confused as we were ushered down some stairs out into the daylight on the terminal. We had to walk to our plane, which I have only ever done in the Virgin Islands before, and luckily we had seats next to each other! There was a very rude Italian man who was about 1 foot too tall for the plane and wanted to switch seats so his ...
... parked behind him, again we were wrong as he drove forward into his 100th million point turn. Eventually the car made into in the gap with maybe 30cm at either end of the car.
As this driver was walking away the driver of the car park in front of him turned up to leave, both the driver and passenger observed and evaluated the situation and in they hoped. We thought they were in a pickle as surely they couldn't get this car our of the car park without asking the smart car driver ...
... Peter thinks it's silly, so we didn't bring a padlock to add to the hundreds of locks already on the bridge. We saw an artist painting, a couple of homeless people and some houseboats. There are hawkers walking around with rings of Eiffel Towers for sale. They even stand outside the buses trying to get people to buy things.
After the cruise we got back on the bus and got off at ...
... has less lanes than what I initially thought but is
still insane! However surprisingly the insanity just works. Cars, bikes, buses
& trucks just all seamlessly work their way onto and off Charles du Gaulle. Whilst praying that my life wouldn’t end on
one of the most famous roads in Paris a girl younger than me and wearing
headphones simply road straight onto and around as though she’d ridden this

In the end - we found our way and didn’t have to wait in the even longer line in front. *We got lazy towards the end of our Lourvre visit and just decided to take pics that 1-had lots of crowds and 2-had warnings about pickpockets. When we saw the pickpocket sign even if there wasn't a crowd - we'd take a pic - whether we knew what we were looking at or not. :) That’s all for today - so far! Take a look see at our pics - and make sure to read the descriptions too! Au ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jays Paris
Ich kann dieses Hotel wärmstens empfehlen. Es hatte riesige, luxuriöse Zimmer, besonders, wenn man sie mit den sonst üblichen Zimmern dieser Kategorie in Paris vergleicht. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit. Tolle Lage in der Nähe des Eifelturms und dem Arc de Triumphe. Im Preis sind Zusätze wie kostenlose WLAN-Verbindung, eine DVD-Auswahl mit inbegriffen. Wenn Sie sich gerne verwöhnen möchten und auch noch Paris sehen wollen, dann ist das Hotel Jay's genau das Richtige für Sie. Es gibt wirklich nichts Schlechtes, was ich über dieses Haus sagen kann.
Consiglio vivamente questo hotel, le camere sono enormi e di lusso rispetto alla norma degli hotel di Parigi e il personale era molto cordiale e disponibile. Il prezzo della camera include degli extra che in genere sono a pagamento come la connessione wireless a banda larga, la biblioteca di DVD... Se desiderate un posto gradevole in cui soggiornare e un buon punto di partenza per esplorare Parigi, il Jays è il posto perfetto. Non ho trovato nulla di negativo in questo hotel.
My husband and I stayed 8 nights at Jays Paris in the Louis XVI room (and 1 night at the Park Hyatt).
My husband and I just stayed at Jays for a weekend break. For the past 7 years, we have gone to Paris for work or a short break about 3-4 times / year. We have stayed in over a dozen different hotels in Paris, ranging from 3 stars in the 7th, to the Four Seasons George V. For our personal trips, we've been searching for a place to come back to again and again, only to be disappointed each time - until this trip!
Highly recommend this hotel, huge luxury rooms compared to normal for Paris and very friendly and helpful staff. Great location near Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Price includes extras that are normally charged like wireless broadband, DVD library. If you want to enjoy the place you are staying as well as seeing Paris then Jay's is the perfect place. There is nothing negative I can say about this hotel.
As a previous reviewer said, I chose Jays based on others' reviews, and wow, what an amazing choice it was! Jays is literally in the heart of central Paris. It took my wife and me only 15 minutes to walk from the hotel to Tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower) and Trocadéro. 15 minutes walk in another direction from the hotel brought us to l'Arc de Triomphe and l'avenue des Champs Elysées! I can't stress enough how invaluable Jays' central location is to many of Paris' main attractions and even a number of its museums, including the Louvre, which is a quick ride on the Metro. My wife and I spent quite a bit of time at the shops and restaurants on the avenues branching off Place Victor Hugo, which is right down the street from Jays at the beginning of Rue Copernic.
Classy 5-Star Stunner
My wife and I highly recommend Jays if you are considering a 5 star boutique in Paris. We normally stay in large 5-star hotels in European cities but this time on recommendation from a family member, we looked at Jays. It is superb luxury with no shortage of effort in the brilliant finishes and yet they make you feel like family if you ever have a need. The location could not be better in the heart of everything making it a great place to stay for a week or more to do some work and explore Paris. They also speak perfect English! It's superb value for a 5-star boutique. In summary, I don't usually write hotel reviews but felt the need to highly recommend this one!
We have just returned from our second stay at this gem. My husband and I get to Paris a few times a year and we think Jay's is the place. We have found our haven. It gives pretty much most of what we look for in a hotel.
We have just returned from a stay at JAYS Paris and loved staying in the lap of luxuryit!!
