Is My Hotel Safe?

by dmrinehart

I'm heading to Paris in March with my family (1st trip). We have reservations at the
Holiday Inn Express
PARIS-LE BOURGET/GARONOR
rue Robert Bremond
Zac Garonor, BP 271
PARIS, 93153

The web site describes the location:
The Express by Holiday Inn Paris-Le Bourget Garonor is situated in the North of Paris, 10 minutes away from Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport, 20 minutes away from Parks center and near the main economic and cultural areas such as Villepinte exhibition center (4km), Le Bourget Exhibition Center (2km), the Cite des Sciences et de L'industrie de la Villette (15km), the Chantilly Castle (30km) and the Asterix Park (20km).

Does anyone have any experience with this hotel? Is it located in a reasonably safe neighborhood?

THANKS for any responses.

David

hi, davis, to be honest, i´ve never stayed at that hotel, but i´ve spent a lot of time in paris, and i´ve never felt my personal safty was in trouble. recently france has hired a lot of police, and you see them everywhere in the city.
"logicly" a holiday inn will also be in a safe neighbourhood.

This hotel is not made for tourists. It is linked with the Bourget and le Villepinte Exibitions at a crossroad of a motorway, a RER and the airport. It organizes also traing courses and company meetings.
The North suburbs have the reputation to be unsafe but the hotel itself is certainly safe because I do not see why you would leave the hotel by foot : there is nothing to do nearby.
It is not a good basis to visit Paris : you could find an other accomodation more centrally located at the same price.

David, David, David. I am sure you must have very good reason. But why in God's name would you stay at a Holiday Inn in Paris. Do yourself a favor, listen to GUY. Hope there is still time for you to change hotels.

Mando.

Re: Re: Is My Hotel Safe?

Guyon and Lavep are right. You really should try to stay somewhere else, closer to the center of Paris. I took the RER in the evening from Paris to CDG (going throught Le Bourget) and did not feel safe. This is a line where there are lots of incidents of tourists being robbed. Even if it's a cheap hotel, I am sure you can find something inexpensive but closer to the heart of Paris.
I hope it's not too late for you to reconsider.
Bon voyage.

Bonjour,

We manage a web site about hotels in Paris and I'm parisian.

Your hotel is not located in Paris but in the suburd.
About 15-20mn from the center of Paris with the RER B.

For a 1st trip I think it's not a good location, the only advantage of the holiday inn is the size of the room.

You can find many hotels in the center with good price, March is not a very busy period in Paris.

Travel Tips for Paris

WALK!!! Paris is very...

by Michael_T

WALK!!! Paris is very condusive to walking. The main landmarks the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and Notre Dame. These are all definately worth seeing on their own, and once visited they serve as excellent landmarks for navigating the city by foot. There were so many places I loved to walk. There are two walks in particular that I would recommend.

First, any walk along the Seine is a delight. For this I liked to start at the Eiffel Tower and walk along the river until I reached Notre Dame. Feel free to stop at any of the bridges along the way and cross half-way to get some great vantage points of the city.

The next walk is a little busier, but still interesting. Start at the Louvre Pyramid and walk straight towards the Arc. You will pass the Tuilleries and the Place de la Concorde with it's Ancient Egyptian Obelisk before continuing straight up the Champs Elysées.

There are also many great areas to just explore blindly. These include the (1) Latin Quarter, specifically around Rue St. Michel, (2) the area surrounding Rue Moufftard (behind the Pantheon), and (3) the Marais which is an area on the Right Bank (North side) of the river and west of the Bastille. These areas are great to explore and will provide you with many pleasant surprises, as well as neat shops and restaurants at reasonable prices.

For people watching I would recommend any cafe with outdoor seating, and two parks, Parc Monceau and les Jardins de Luxembourg. If you just want to see the sights and you have time, do not miss the landmarks mentioned above, as well as the Musée d'Orsay, Sainte Chapelle (excellent stained glass from the 1200's...located on Ile de la Cité two blocks west of Notre Dame inside the Palais), and the Père Lachaise cemetary where many famous Parisians, including Jim Morrison, are buried. And, for those with a strong stomach, I would also recommend the catacombs (located at 1, place Denfert-Rochereau, just off the Denfert-Rochereau métro) and a tour of the original Paris Sewers (Les Egouts, located at the corner of Quai d'Orsay and Pont de l'Alma).

This list includes about half of what I would recommend but it is already overwhelming, so I will not add to it. Do not be afraid to walk without a plan. It's a great way to learn the city and see Parisian culture. Please email if you have any questions about details, etc. Bon chance! Getting a crepe from the same crepe stand everyday before class. By chance I discovered this wonderful crepe maker. He is actually a Greek man who works Paris during the warm seasons. I was never once disappointed in his crepes, and his prices beat everyone else too. When I last visited he was still in the same spot, so I recommend you pay him a visit if you want the best crepes Paris has to offer. You can get there by taking the #8 (purple) Métro to Ecole Militaire. From there, head away from the actual Ecole Militaire building on Avenue du Marechal Gallieni. Take your first left down Rue Cler, a pedestrian street/market area. Follow this for about half a block and on the left where this intersects Rue du Champ de Mars, there is cafe. I cannot recall the name of this cafe, but just in front of it you will find a crepe stand with jolly man in his early 60's with silvery-gray hair. I'd suggest Banana and Sugar or Lemon and Sugar, though any combination is delicious!

Pitoresque Buildings

by draguza

Paris is one of the birthplaces of photography and a city whose casual beauty makes for rich material to anyone willing to walk around slowly and observe carefully. It could be that your eyes will settle on a bit of sculpture on a building facade. Or the arrangement of goods in a shop

Arc de Triomphe

by Sharrie

Read up on your history!

1806: Napoleon ordered the construction of this triumphal arch in honor of his glorious armies after the Battle of the Three Emperors at Austerlitz.
Architect: Jean-Francois Chalgrin (1739-1811).
1836: Completion of Arch.
1840: Napoleon's mortal remains brought home through the completed Arc de Triomphe.
1885: Hearse bearing Victor Hugo's coffin stood beneath the arch for 2 full days.
1921: An unknown French soldier (symbolising the 1,390,000 who perished during World War I) laid to rest beneath the arch. Not a fond memory... more somber than anything.

The Tombeau du Soldat Inconnu (Tomb of the Unknown Soldier): 1st memorial of its kind in the world.

Cafe is much more expensive...

by kylamees

Cafe is much more expensive when You sit outside. If someone places teddy bear or flowers to Your table he/she expects to get money for it, this things are not for free. If You don't know how much money he/she waits don't take a thing.

Markets

by Applelyn

I like to go to the markets where locals frequent. Food represents a huge part of one's culture. Looking at how locals bargained with the stall holders, the way the locals wrapped their bargains and the display of local produces never bore me. Sometimes it reminded me that the world is just one common place. Everyone has to eat...hahaha...and the basics are the same.
