    I have been charged twice by this hotel and they will not refund my money. I paid with cash upon check-out, only later to find that my card had been charged for this same amount. They are either completely incompetent or they have deliberately stolen my money, possibly both.

    When I emailed the hotel they acknowledged their mistake and promised to refund my money. They did not do so, so I contacted the booking agent who have now told me that the hotel receipt and bank statement I have sent them are not good enough proof that I paid twice. For the money they've taken from me I could have actually stayed somewhere MUCH nicer.

    Therefore, BEWARE. Should you choose to stay at this run-down little place for a cheap weekend in Paris, it may well not turn out to be a cheap weekend. DON'T PAY WITH CASH. I regret ever having visited and this has completely spoiled my impression of Paris and it's people.

    Also, you should only stay if you speak good French as they do not speak English.

Best Time to Buy Plane Ticket to Europ

by bimmerman

When is the best time to buy plane ticket to Europe from US when I am planning to be there in April during Easter? How much is a good price?

Re: Best Time to Buy Plane Ticket to Europ

If we had an answer to that question we would all be travelling more and spending less time on VT.

Easter is prime travel time and will be very expensive. I was in Europe around Easter on business a number of years ago and needed get home because of a medical emergency involving a family member. Even with no cost constraints (I was willing to go on any airline, any class of ticket), I could not get a flight during this period. So if this is your timing, you will be paying a premium.

Tourism tends to ramp up after Easter, so you are looking at the ramp up in the travel season. Before Easter might get you a better price.

With airfares being competitive to and from Europe, the best thing is to monitor the various airlines flying from where you want to depart from to where you want to travel to. If you see a seat sale, jump on it.

No one can predict what a ticket will cost you. Oil prices (fuel costs) are up signficantly over what they were less than half a year ago, the $US is quite weak against most other currencies, a number of low-cost carriers have gone out of business over the past 18 months, and the remaining carriers have reduced their capacity to meet the lower overall demand that has resulted from the recession. All this means is that air fares are up over what they were in the fairly recent past.

All that being said, I have found some fairly good travel bargains to Europe being offered in January and February. Air travel tends to be lower during those times of year and airlines seem to sometime have sales to help their cash flow.

My usual way to book is expedia I live in Canada so I do exedia.ca but you can do expedia.com then I put in the dates I want and save it to my trips.. I watch then to see the price raise or fall... lately it has been crazy high... but I am coming from the west coast....
Cheap O air is not bad... just Google cheap tickets and see what happens.... I also will check these out and then go to the airline... it is all a crap shoot right now!!

You don't say from where in the US and that makes a big difference. When you do your ticket search, if possible, be flexible about the airport you plan to fly out of (and to unless it has to be Paris). I know for certain flights for us it is cheaper to fly out of San Francisco and for other cities, it is cheaper to fly out of Sacramento. We have an option of at least three airports and I realize everyone doesn't have that, but even if you have to drive someplace and spend the night before the flight, if there is a several hundred dollar difference, it is worth it.

Keep checking all the cheapo web sites and then go directly to the airline web site you want and book with them (in case of cancelled or delayed flights).

Good luck and do book well before Easter or you may pay dearly.

Travel Tips for Paris

Go to the Eiffel tower and...

by theitguru

Go to the Eiffel tower and have a cappucino.walk across from the tower base,and stand on the same spot hitler did,when he over-took paris.Then you'll know the true value of the soldiers who fought in world war one. Just being there,the traffic sucks,but the experience is not to be missed.

Walk along the Champ Elysees...

by sham

Walk along the Champ Elysees and walk towards the Arc de Triumph. You'll notice that all the traffics from all directions are converging to this monument. This monument was built by Napoleon as a triumphal arch dedicated to the glory of the Imperial army.The names of many soldiers are inscribed on the walls. You can climb to the top for views. Be careful when you are crossing from the monument to the other side of the road ( Champ_Elysees), traffic is terrible. At night, the scenery is fantastic when the monument is lighted especially looking from afar.

Pont Alexandre III

by Klod5

Most people consider the Pont Alexandre III the most beautiful bridge in Paris. It is lavishly decorated with lampposts and sculptures of cherubs and nymphs. On each end of the bridge are large gilded statues on 17 meters high granite pillars. Each of the ornaments on the bridge was created by a different artist.

Aligned with the Esplanade des Invalides, the Pont Alexandre III connects the Grand and Petit Palais on the right bank with the Hôtel des Invalides on the left bank. Construction of the bridge, designed by the architects Résal and Alby, took almost 3 years. It was first prefabricated in a factory and later transported and assembled by a large crane. One of the requirements for the bridge was that it should not obstruct the view on the Invalides and Champs-Elysées. This resulted in a very low 40 meters wide bridge with a single 107.5 meters long span and a height of only 6 meters.

In october 1896, the first stone was laid by the Russian Tsar Nicolas II. It was named after his father, Tsar Alexander III. Construction only started in May 1897 and the bridge opened just in time for the Universal Exposition of 1900.

PICARD Frozen Gourmet Food

by thinking

If you are staying in a furnished apartment or one of the increasingly popular apartment-hotels in the city (which provide fully-equipped kitchens), you can buy and prepare your own food. If you want to do this quickly, be advised that France is a leader in top-quality frozen meals. The largest chain seems to be Picard, with multiple locations in Paris, all of which feature long rows of freezers with zillions of ready-made meals that you can just pop into a microwave (usually); the quality of the food is amazingly high, compared to what you might normally expect in the U.S. for this type of food. Many supermarket chains also offer microwavable dinners that you need only keep refrigerated; here again, quality is astonishingly high—many of these little meals are delicious!

Pichards as well as others also offers ice creams and all kinds of frozen cakes.
Just unthaw the cakes or pies and it is ready to eat!

Crepe

by Deise05

The crepes that are sold on those little stands by the street are the best! Specially after a day walking around the city. It is funny because usually the people who sell them do not speak much english, so it is a great way to try to speak some french.. but they are pretty nice so there should be no problem.
