Port Royal Hotel

by aaronm

Has anyone stayed at the Port Royal Hotel (located on Port Royal Blvd)?
I am considering stayin gthere in May, but haven't been able to find any reviews online.

RE: Port Royal Hotel

Is this the Villa Lutece Port Royal Hotel? If it is, it is on rue Jenner and near three Metro stations, Campo Formio, Nationale and Cheveleret. It's in the 13th but near the Seine (and the new Natl. Library). It's walking distance from the Jardin des Plantes, the Latin Quarter, Notre Dame, etc. It's a little farther out than a lot of people like to stay but still close enough that you wouldn't spend a lot of time traveling back and forth to the main sights. We thoroughly enjoyed the Jardin des Plantes; you might too.

Here is the link I found to it.

Look it over and see what you think. The area is fine. It's near the hospital where they took Princess Diana after her accident.

Hopefully, you'll hear from someone who has stayed there. If you're looking for reviews, you might do a search on the Villa Lutece Port Royal and see if that helps. If I have the wrong hotel, I apologize.

Thank you all for your replies.
The Port Royal Hotel I am talking about is a family owned hotel, not the Villa Lutece Port Royal, but thank you anyway.
Is good to know that it is located in a nice neighborhood.
I checked the Timhotel Jardin des Plantes, but it is significantly more expensive.

Travel Tips for Paris

The eternal symbol of Paris

by Laura_Mexico

This is me in front of the beautiful Eiffel Tower, viewed from the Trocadero...

Besides climbing the tower, if you decide to do so (it's a MUST DO for all the tourists that visit Paris for the first time and so you must be ready to wait in line for a long time to climb it), I highly recommend that you walk around this area - Champ de Mars, the park & green areas surrounding the tower and the fountains at the Trocadero are wonderful to take a walk or just sit down for a while and relax - and eat one of the snacks that are sold in the stands you'll find all over the place (warm waffles - called gauffres -, or crepes)... they're GREAT!!!

Since a couple of years ago - or so I heard, in 2007 - they started illuminating the Eiffel Tower with these lights that look like white "sparks" besides of the regular yellowish light that illuminates the monument permanently in the evenings. The sparks aren't permanent, they only display them for 5 mins. or so every hour, starting at 8:00 PM if I'm not wrong and up till midnight. It's an awesome view which I was able to appreciate both while being very close to the Tower and also from afar, while at the top of the Montparnasse Tower. The picture is terrible unfortunately, and it could never replace the REAL view.... but look at it just to get an idea of what it looks like!

Belleville's garden

by Klod5

Exposed well, to flank of small hill, the garden of Belleville is very pleasant. One cultivates more there grapevine (as in Montmartre). Since the garden, one has a very beautiful view on the capital. Since the superior terraces the visitors have a vast enough vision of Paris: Defense, the Efeil tower, Notre - Dame, the Pathéon...

Here is a photo of a gift being prepared, in Paris, to send to the US.

For the story of this gift, see the Travelogue in my Colmar, France page. Colmar is the home town of the sculptor (and a beautiful town to visit).

And in return, the US congress changes the name of two menu items... "freedom" fries and "freedom" toast. Go figure.

Vexing Versailles

by lohki

Make sure you know if your train goes directly to Versailles or how many stops that particular train will be making.

I almost didn?t get off at the right place because I was told "X" number of stops before Versailles and the train only stopped "Y" number of times!

I did very much enjoy myself here, though it will not be top on my list the next time I visit Paris.
