This hotel is a good deal for discovering the Montmartre district. The rooms are extremely small (I could not even open my carry-on luggage, except on the bed). It is clean but no huge fuss on appearance. Most walls appeared to need one more coat of paint, looked like only the primer had been put on. The shower could use some scrubbing for all the black between the wall tiles. The originality is the inner court-yard which must be most appreciated in the summer. The owners are Korean, very nice and helpful. Free internet access is provided in their lobby computers. The break-fast room is dreary looking and we went out for ours.
This hotel is located close to the métro Abbesses. The latter is one of the deepest metro stations in Paris, but it has an elevator. You can never escape having to go through stairs, however, so beware if you have big suitcases!
Unique Quality: The hotel is nicely located near the lively Rue des Abbesses. It is within walking distance of Place du Tertre, Moulin-Rouge, and the Sacré-Coeur. It has an original plant-filled inner court-yard with some of their rooms opening on it.
Directions: Montmartre. Metro Abbesses (ligne 12).
I will be travelling with my two year old to Paris in October. I will be staying at Hotel Monge which is in the Latin Quarter.
I was wondering if anyone has information on train ride from hotel to DisneyLand. How far is it, and how much time does it take to get to Disney from Latin Quarter.
if It is a very long ride, my other option is stay one night at "Hotel Du Moulin De Paris" after spending the day in park, and then go back to my hotel in Latin Quarter. Is it worth it.
Any feedback on the park itself. I have been to Disney in Florida, but this would be the first time for the kid.
Thanks for ur help
There's a whole forum going on with "Disney Bashing." But....if kid has never been you might be better to take a trip to Orlando or Anaheim instead. I was quite disapointed in Euro-Disney. I've heard that it is not now actually owned by Disney, just the name has been licensed.
I just returned from the Anaheim park and found that in general it is not "up to standard" any more and I've been going to the Anaheim Park since 1956 (right after it opened) and Orlando as well.
As for the train ride out of Paris, I don't recall the actual line, but the Metro stops right at the entrance to the park. I believe it took about 30 minutes to get there but it was 4 years ago so I may be off. It wasn't that long of a trip anyway.
For a 2-year, going to an ordinary kid's park on the corner is just as good as Disneyland. It's a waste of money and time, and the kid won't remember it anyway. Wait till he's bigger and it means something.
From the metro Place Monge take the line 7 direction La Courneuve (20min)
Stop at Chatelet (tne tranfer can last 15 min)
Take RER (express metro) line A direction Marne la Vallee.
Stop at Chessy Marne la Vallee (40 min after).
Euros Disney is a copy of Disneyland of Anhamein.
Very Crowdy in Summer.
Open at 9AM Sa & Su. At 10AM the week days. Come early.
The ticket can be bought in some metro stations.
It is still owned by Disney but it is close to the bankrupcy because Europeans are not like Americans : they buy less within the park.
I'm not sure I'd take a 2-year-old to Disney in Paris or anyplace else. He/she won't remember any of it. Wait until your child is about five or six and can remember the fun.
BTW, instead of Disneyland, you might consider Parc Asterix. It's a French theme park based on the comic strip Asterix. It would be a fun and very French alternative . . . and also probably crowded although in September not nearly as much as in the summer if you avoid weekends.
You can check the Park Asterix web site and see what you think. It's more for you anyway. A 2-year-old would be perfectly happy chasing pigeons in the Luxembourg Gardens. The URL is http://www.parcasterix.com
Whatever you do, have fun.
