Travel Blogs from Paris
Another busy day today. Basically just exploring again. Montmartre / Sacre Coeur / Notre-Dame at night / Eiffel Tower at night. The view from Montemarte over Paris is worth the walk. Perhaps the touristy nature and the sketch artists wanting to draw your likeness who seem to almost outnumber the tourists is a bit much, however apparently it was reasonably quiet when we went (school holidays had ...
... in the basement are also well lit. As we discovered at Notre Dame and Sacre Couer, the staff have perfected the "shush". The neighbourhood is very academic, with book stores on every corner, along with lots of other stores and boutiques. Sloan found a nice women's store and ended up buying a nice dress (on sale or "soldes" in French). The girls found a few more stores that interested them (esp Desigual), while I went to the train outlet to purchase ...
We're heading to the catacombs this morning. 90 steps down and a lot of walking. --David
We ended up skipping the catacombs today due to a very long line. It wapped around the block back to the beginning of the line. We may try again another day. We rested and walked around the Trocadero area today.
... the time Bryn was melting down, Sage was ready to move on, and we left for our second museum of the day: the Museum of the Middle Ages (Musée National du Moyen Âge).
On the way we stopped for lunch at what was a friendly, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. The stop ended up taking MUCH longer than we expected because our waiter was seriously inexperienced. However, it turned out that the time I felt like we were frittering ...
... stayed in a hotel very close to the Arc de Triomphe, we were basically in tourist central. This had its charms (and ultimately was humorous), but if I return I will try to live a little more off the beaten path.
Our last full day in Paris was defined by contrast. In the morning we were able to walk down quaint Parisian streets and eat tasty food in an adorable café without the hustle and bustle of tourists. In the ...

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!!
