Re: Opera Lafayette Hotel
Often the hotels have a known landmark in their name to attract the tourist. For this hotel, the Opera is at the other extremity of the rue Lafayette. That means you must walk 20 mn at leat to reach the Opera because you will arrive from the back of the building.
Their advertisement tells they are near Sacre Coeur. You will see it from this area because it is located on the Montmartre Hill but it needs time to go there walking or by the metro because the nearest station (Cadet) has only 1 line (7).
The hotel seems to be specialized in Asian tourists.
It is located near the square Montholon, a small park of Paris. Nearby, there the rues Bleue & de Paradis which are the best places to see and may be, to buy French china.
By day the rue Lafayette is crowdy and a traditional traffic jam. By night it is empty.
The nightlife is on the Grands Boulevards (blvd Montmartre and Poissonniere) at 15 mn walk.
There are a lot of hotels near Opera some making promotions (i e Hotel Millenium corner of Blvd Haussmann & rue Laffitte) with a more pleasant neighborhood.
Travel Tips for Paris
Beeing two times in Paris, to...
Beeing two times in Paris, to my shame I had no time to visit Louvre,but,thanks God!I've spent half of the day in musee d'Orsay - real treasure for those ho like paintings. Here you can see paintings that dozen times 've seen on the cards or books :Mane,Dega,Van Gog, Renuar,Gogen. Museum works 9:00-21:45.Ticket near 10$.62,rue de Lille. Very difficult it was to keep from making photos, but the flash is prohibited here. Hope you are not a lazy traveller and like long walks on feet,but if you become tired,don't worry!Paris has well developped metro system and tha train will bring you quickly anywhere.
St. Germain-des-Pres is a lively quarter on the left bank of the Seine full of cafes and restaurants. Back in the fifties, it was the place to be for the intellectuals. After that, it were the philosophers. Now, you will find here a lot of tourists :-) and fancy people. Spending the evening here, strolling along the streets and having a nice dinner in a historical restaurant Le Procope.
Le vaste monument abrite le tombeau de Napoléon Bonaparte, le sanguinaire empereur qui mit l'Europe à feu et à sang.
Derrière les invalides ne manquez pas d'aller voir le musée de la guerre, au ministère de la défense.

Behind the invalids don't miss to be going to see the museum of the war, to the ministry of defense.
SALES IN PROGRESS NOW THROUGH AUGUST 5TH
For all the dates and times of the government sponsored sales.
When I meet visitors to Paris, they are often searching the city looking for a bargain, disappointed to not see any sale signs in their favorite boutiques. Let me tell you why--in France, by law, sales (“soldes”) are held only twice a year, with one sale period starting in January and the other in July. The government decides when the sales will be held and announces the official dates just days before the sales start. The stores then flutter around getting ready and shopaholics (myself included!) wait with bated breath for the opening day of the sales. Sale prices start at about 25-30% off for the first few days, and grow bigger as the sales go on. By the end of the sales [6 weeks maximum], the reductions can be up to 75% off.
Chateau de Versailles
King Louis XIV called himself the Sun King, and upgraded the hunting lodge his father built into probably the biggest palace complex in the world (Sultan of Brunei's palace is pretty large too). Frankly, I was disappointed with the Palace of Versailles because after the French Revolution, most of the beautiful treasures in it were plundered.
The palace was full or people and while walking through the halls, we were pushed to move on by those behind us. Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna is much better, it still has its collection of art & furniture intact. The highlight of the palace is renowned 75m (250ft) Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), where the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919, signifying the end of World War I.
Admission is Euro8 for adults
