  • Great hotel!


    This hotel is just great. We stayed here for 4 nights from July, 27 till July, 31 2012. It's very clean and has a modern design. In our room everything worked perfectly, it was very clean and nice.
    Breakfast was very good and the little restaurant itself is so nice and cosy.
    The stuff is welcoming and helpful and the main thing - everyone speaks English so we had no problem with that.
    All in all we are definitely coming back to this hotel as we had such a pleasant experience with it.

    Unique Quality: Eifel Tower view
    quiet neighborhood

train travelling

by DonOuellet

I want to go from Paris to Puy-en-Levay by train. Do I take the TGV from Paris or do I have to change train along the way? Is it expensive? I am from Canada and never been in Europe... any information will help me to prepare for that trip next year in May through half of July.

First of all, it's best to look at the French language version of SCNF. If you choose English, you will automatically be taken to Raileurope, which is a ticketing agency and not a train operator. It does not list all departures, and charges commission on tickets.

So use this link (it's easy to work out):

Journey time from Paris Gare de Lyon is from 4h 20 minutes, with one change (usually at St Etienne Chateaucreux). You have plenty of time to make the connection, so no need to worry about that.

One-way fare varies according to departure, the shorter journeys being more expensive (96.70 euro and 131.70 euro), the longer (at 7+ hours) 68.20 euro.

Totally the wrong link! My apologies.

This is the correct link:

Re: train travelling


I assume you mean Puy-en-Velay?
Though train connections may have changed, I did that route (Paris to P-en-V) before. It was TGV from Paris Gare d'Est to Lyon and from there the local train to P-en-V.
It was a memorable journey, especially that last bit. I've described it on my Puy-en-Velay page:

an old, rambling train for a final 3 hour lap to Puy.
The train warden was someone from a film. It reminded me of that BBC comedy about a train station, he walked about as if he owned it. The scenery was spectacular, much of it up windy tracks, climbing hills and along mountain streams.

Travel Tips for Paris mention food?

by severin821

I love this fine city! Make sure you stop at the street side Panini / Crepe stand! The Panini are deeeelious *they should make these beautiful yummy grilled sandwiches more available in the states. The Crepes are absolutely wonderful! Strawberries, bananas with Nutella chocolate is the ONE! Time seems to stand're drinking in the moment. People watching, kids laughing, lovers holding hands.....

Risking your life

by shdw100

There is always something to do in Paris: the museums, the sites, or just plain walking around!
Probably my most favorite thing about Paris is just the energy that the city gives off. You can feel it all around you, night and day! Not many cities in the world can claim to grab you when you get there and pull you in so quickly and not let you go!! I wouldn't call it my fondest memory, but if you go see the arch, forget finding that tunnel that will get you out there safely! Just run across the street!! It just seems to make it a little more adventurous that way, and another memory that you can pack away in your vacation file!!

Tour Eiffel

by codrutz

This incredible structure..built by the railway architect Eiffel..the tower seems like a big railway is unique in the world..a landmark not to be missed...The Eiffel Tower is a masterpiece by itself...the construction is perfect..You feel perfectly safe going up..the design seems to be made to last forever

How polite you are in French to Parisians will most likely determine how polite and helpful they are to you.

Every time you encounter someone you meet or do business/pleasure with, begin the conversation with "Bonjour" and when your conversation is finished and you are ready to leave, end the conversation with either "Merci. Au revoir, monsieur." or a less formal "Merci, bonjour."
"Bon soir " if the sun has gone down..

It doesn't matter if you just saw or spoke to that person half an hour ago.... do it every time.

Everyone except intimate/close friends is to be addressed formally as "Madame, Monsieur, vous", etc.)

Please (sil vous plait ) and thanks (merci ) cannot be over-used.

I try never to initiate a conversation in Paris without first saying:
"Excusez-moi de vous deranger" ("Excuse me for bothering you")

and I almost never fail to actually get giggles, even hugs, and lots of extra warmth, help & attention when I tell someone who assists me how kind/pleasant/helpful
"Vous etes tres aimable"

or how kind/nice they are (if they really go out of their way for me):
"Merci, c'est tre gentil de votre part. "

Granted the usage above is my terrible french, but even the most tourist-hardened Parisian citizens and merchants seem to melt & "light up" just because of the effort.

Using polite, formal conversation seasoned with lots of sil vous plaits and mercis will grease the wheels greatly for you.

Here are some excellent videos
that literally spoonfeed you all you need to know.

If you practice the phrases listed at the video link above or the website below on this tip, I think you will find out how truly polite, helpful, and special Parisians are.

Bonne chance!

Your friend: A 22" rolling suitcase


Done this so many times: packed too many clothes for just a week! What with 9/11 and security checks paring down to one 22" suitcase is the way to go nowadays.

Select all the clothes you wish to bring and leave half of them at home! There will be more room in the suitcase for souvenirs...

But be sure to take your suitcase full of valuables with you onboard the plane-do not check it in. If you do need to check in the suitcase, do not put anything of value in there. In fact, one great way to bypass the unlocked suitcase thing, is to get some cable wire ties which are really cheap. Pass them through the zippers on the suitcase to secure them; that way your zippers won't open up accidentally and you get a sort of reassurance no one will open your suitcase as easily as if there were no protection at all. However, if security needs to look inside your suitcase then they can snip off the ties. For yourself, you can snip off the ties with a nail clipper. A
