More information about Eiffel Seine Hotel

by karenloves2travel

Hi everyone,

After having wonderful help in previous hotels I am again requesting Virtual Tourist members to help me with my next holiday. We're heading to Paris around mid-May, just my husband and I. Looking at staying 5 nights which works out around 4 full days. After hours of perusing reviews on hotels I am attracted to the Eiffel Seine due to it's location, also close to transport, rooms seem large for Paris and reviews seem pretty glowing. I'd like to know if there are nearby restaurants and cafes that are moderately priced, is there anything in a similar location that I should compare it with? I am surprised the the prices through Expedia are cheaper than booking direct so has anyone had a similar experience with finding it cheaper than booking through the hotel? I'm looking at booking a double superior room for around 184 Euro which includes taxes. I can book breakfast for an extra 16 Euros but wonder if this is necessary if there are good cafes around. Thank you so much for your help.

The great thing about Paris is that there are great restos and cafes all over the place and if you walk a few blocks, you will double the enjoyment. Don't bother with the French breakfast for 16 euro. Most likely it will be a glorified continental. Head out to a local cafe and pick up a cafe, pastry and juice for about 5 euro. Karl

We never eat at the hotel. There is nearly always find a pleasant cafe within a block or two. There is a cafe just beside your hotel that you could check. Unfortunately, that is about the only truly nearby cafe since your hotel is in a business and stadium area. To get to the Eiffel Tower cafes you will have to walk down past some high rises and the stadium to get there.

If you haven't booked, you might want to look for a hotel on the other side of the Eiffel Tower, nearer the tourist areas. There will be more cafes and you'll be closer to the sights. If you only have 4 days, you don't want to spend a lot of time getting to the sights. We love to walk in Paris, but in the older more picturesque areas. You are right on the #6 Bir-Hakeim Metro line so would have good connections. In mid-May, you might prefer walking since it is so beautiful in Paris then. Here are a couple hotels you can look at.

http://www.clement-moliere-paris-hotel.com/ (We love the Clement.)
http://www.hotelduchampdemars.com/
http://www.hotelvaladon.com/index.html (Very modern, not picturesque)
http://www.hotel-grandes-ecoles.com/ (Have always wanted to stay here.)

At least look around and see what's available closer to the center of town. The only one of the above we have stayed at is the Hotel Clement where we have stayed several times. It's right in the middle of Paris, loads of cafes nearby, easy walk to most tourist sights and great shopping and very friendly staff. It's in the St. Germain district.

BTW, you can type the hotel address into http://maps.google.com/ and zoom in to see the neighborhood. There is a little yellow-orange man on the zoom control. Pull him down to the street address and you can see actual photos of the street and buildings. It's great to get an idea of what is nearby although the photos are always completely current.

Have fun planning and enjoy Paris.

Travel Tips for Paris

Where is that hotel / restaurant / sight ?

by Beausoleil

What is an arrondissement? It is a section or district in the city.

Paris is made up of 20 districts, each having its own city hall and administration. These districts are called arrondissements and arranged starting in the center of town on the Seine and going around in a snail-like pattern. The snail makes it difficult to figure out where you are.

#1 is in the center of town on the north side of the Seine and called the Right Bank; #2 is above it so not near the river. #3 is east so also not on the river. Then you turn south to #4 that is actually beside #1 and on the Seine.

Next you cross the Seine still headed south and come to the Left Bank (south side of the Seine) and arrondissement #5 that is called the Latin Quarter because it is where the universities are and they all used to speak Latin. Relax, they don't do that now!

Continue west along the Seine on the Left Bank (south side) into arrondissement #6 or the St. Germain district. This has many famous literary associations. Continue west along the Seine toward the Eiffel Tower into arrondissement #7.

You again cross the Seine to the Right Bank (north side) into arrondissement 8 and the snail continues up and east, then down and west and repeats until you end at #20 on the eastern side of the city.

The postal code in the address is the key to finding what you are looking for. If you are looking for a place to stay, any of the central arrondissements are near tourist attractions and safe. Look for arrondissements #1, 4, 5, 6 and 7 for starters. If you find a hotel you like, look at the address. The last two digits of the postal code are the arrondissement number. Hence, a postal code ending in 05 would be in the 5th arrondissement or Latin Quarter; a postal code ending in 06 would be in the 6th arrondissement of St. Germain district. You get the idea.

To further confuse the issue some arrondissements have popular names. #5 is the Latin Quarter; #6 is St. Germain; #4 is the Marais and they are often referred to by these names instead of their numbers. The word-names are a bit more fluid than the numbers so use the numbers when looking for hotels, restaurants and tourist sights.

Paris is a very well organized city. 8^) Too many to print . . .

Disneyland. Great fun. Loads...

by Zyg

Disneyland. Great fun. Loads to do. We only went to Paris on a day trip. We stood under the Eiffel Tower. It's amazing - a lot bigger than you would imagine.
My nicest memory was sitting outside a little bar on a small table having an ice cream watching people go by.
But Disneyland itself. What can I say? Wear sturdy footwear because you are constantly walking - we started out about 7.30am and were not getting back to our hotel until midnight. Very tiring, but great fun. Anybody who likes Disney will love it. When we walked through the gates and stood at the entrance looking at Sleeping Beauty's Castle, we felt like we were in one of the films. It really is a magical place. The only bad thing I can think of is that it's heartbreaking when your 5 year old can't get to the character for an autograph because of all the parents pushing in their children (being English we tended at first to be typical and wait in line, but when this obviously wasn't the best way forward, we got the hint and starting behaving as the natives did - which wasn't our 'cup of tea' but it's the only way to get an autograph for your child!) The rides were great. The buildings were fantastic. The parades were great - lots of dancing and loud music which catches you up (we even bought the CD to bring home).

At Night:The Quarter & Place St.-Michel

by hquittner

Sitting on the parapet of the Pont (that is bridge) St.-Michel late on a warm pleasant night, talking with friends and drinking in the self-centered activities swirling around and looking at the variably lit structures nearby is a memory never to be forgotten. Depending on how one wants to define it, the Place St.-Michel and its fountain are in the 6th Arr. and at the boundary of the Latin quarter; the action is in the 5th.(see our Tips about this in Things to Do>Latin Quarter and >St.-Severin there). When the two of us remember Paris, it is this spot; we treated our 4 grown sons and their wives to a week in France. We walked here from where we were staying (and just had dinner) in the St.-Germaine de Pres Quarter on their first night. I am sorry the pictures are so dark, they are lifted from an early camcorder in May 1998).

Beach oasis on the Seine

by evabijou

Paris Plage:
Since 2002, the City of Paris has turned the banks of the Seine into a summertime "beach oasis." Mid-July through August, over 2,000 tons of white sand is brought onto the banks from Ile St. Louis to the Jardin des Tuileries for this temporary beach party. August is typically the month when most Parisians hit the road for their summer travels. Chatelet is a good metro stop to get off at to get to the plage. Those who are stuck in the city can be found lounging under the big umbrellas and enjoying free concerts and family activities at Paris Plage. If you really want to fit in, don a wide-brimmed hat and grab your sarong!

by cheekymarieh

If you speak to the french in their language they will answer in English (if they speak the language!). Personally I have never had any problems with the people in the city ... but I do have a reasonable knowledge of the language.
