There’s a mini arcade and ball pit for 2-8 year olds by the check in desk. Which is wonderful after a long day of travel with our two kids. They happily played while waited to check in. Shuttle to and from Disneyland Paris was great and fast.
Having to return to the States from CDG airport, this is exactly what I needed - relatively inexpensive, convenient to the airport (both bus and train shuttles) and to Paris - train station and ticket machines right there in Terminal 3 (about a 2 minute walk from the hotel). The hotel staff allowed ...
Nice hotel, nice location. Wish I had been more mindful about 2:00 check in time. We arrived at 8:30 on a rainy morning - exhausted and wet with nowhere to go. Room was lovely but very small. Card in room indicated that it was one of the smaller rooms - not sure why they would put 3 beds in one of ...
I'd like to clarify that my rating is based on my personal experience the week I was there. The hotel itself is very nice, with friendly staff and decent rooms and breakfast. The issue I had was with the last two nights I was there. The A/C went out and it was 95 degrees outside. I received no support ...
Couldn’t be more impressed by the staff . Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The manager went out of his way on a Sunday night to get us ice because my husband pulled a muscle. No language problems here, their English is superior to my French. My only complaints, and they are minor - there is ...
My husband and I were backpacking around Europe on our honeymoon. It was our first time in Europe, and we LOVE Disneyland. We thought we'd splurge and stay at the Disney Paris Hotel. The location cannot be beat: it is at the park entrance and makes for a wonderful start and end of the day when you ...
Nice clean rooms. Bright and colorful hotel that is great for families with children. Inside the Disney community, this gives the hotel a safe feeling of security. Access from Autobahn only. Free parking is a plus.
Disney is known for its magic and wonder, a place you go to dream. This hotel does not reflect the same experience you expect from a Disney encounter. The beds are old, the rooms are tiny, the television is old with only a few news channels and some Disney channels (the English speaking in did not ...
Despite lacking the usual joyful décor of a Disney Hotel, the Sante Fe was very nice, and the staff was excellent. Many spoke a variety of languages, and they all spoke English. The Disney Bus was always on time, and it was only an 8 minute ride directly to, and from, the Parks. My main dislike was ...
Great space, four single beds, with plenty of room to spread out. Small kitchen well equipped with everything we needed to cook our own meals, very close to two grocery stores. Walking distance to metro stations, and close enough to walk to the Eiffel Tower. Be aware that when you book the apartment it does not come with housekeeping, that’s an additional fee, but you have a vacuum. Buy some paper towels when you go to the grocery and you should be all set.
We stayed here 2 years in a row and definitely would come back again.
Out in the boonies, BIG TIME. Not near ANYTHING. Main issue - booked months in advance. Got there, no record. I showed them receipt; they advised inet down, should be up in "moments". I told them I don't want to stay if no internet, they advised repair underway. I stayed 2 nights, never got on the inet, as they couldn't fix it. Almost 55 hours STRAIGHT with no inet. It is 2017. I drove a few blocks to the other hotels, THEY had inet. Wasn't horrible experience, fairly clean, decent price; but lack of inet ruined it for me as I keep my flight data online......:(
They are doing some renovations, so I imagine things will be a little better once that's finished. We stayed three nights, and slept well each night despite some street noise. The air conditioning was effective, which was fortunate as the days got quite hot. There is an elevator, but we tended to use the stairs. We didn't like the decor, and both the door to the room and the door to the bathroom tended to scrape on the floor. We had booked a family room, which meant that there were two twin beds and a sleep sofa. The sleep sofa was not uncomfortable, but I did feel as though I had to resist rolling to the center. The shower was prone to spraying water on the floor if we weren't careful. The shower head was at about chest height (but one could use it hand-held to wash one's hair, for example). There were no towel racks in the bathroom. The breakfast buffet was decent (croissants, chocolate croissants, bread, jam, fruit, yoghurt, cereals), but they tended to run out of orange juice.
Sitting in a street café watching Parisians pass by, you will realize there are few places in the world that are as romantic as Paris. Cluttered with galleries that include the Louvre, bohemian cobbled lanes and designer flagship stores, there#39;s s a unique experience in every corner of the city. Famous landmarks fill the skyline, which looks especially idyllic when the sun sets. Witness this beauty on a boat ride along the Seine river and prepare to catch the lively fever of Paris.
Step into this majestic cathedral, made famous by the 1831 novel, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, and be wowed by its French gothic architecture. Located on the Ile de la Cite in the center of the city, guests will feel enveloped by its history, which dates back to 1345.
Incredibly, the symbol of Paris was nearly torn down shortly after the conclusion of the 1889 World's Fair, which is what it was built for. However, the city realized how essential the structure was for communication purposes, and adoration for the Eiffel Tower steadily grew over time. It would nearly be a crime to leave Paris without a trip up to the top.
A gallery that needs no introduction, even to the most amateur art lover, the Louvre houses Leonardo da Vinci's “Mona Lisa” among a plethora of famous artworks in its 600,000 square feet of exhibition space. You can easily spend hours here, getting lost in a world of paintings and sculptures.
Vacationing runners will surely enjoy traversing the streets during the Paris Marathon, held every April. Those more interested in watching events will enjoy attending some French Open tennis matches in May or June, or lining the streets in July for the exciting conclusion of the Tour de France.
France's largest stadium seats 81,338 and is located in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis, about five miles north of the city. Built for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, it hosts games played by France's national football (soccer) and rugby teams, and the final match of the Coupe de France every May. Visit the stadium to watch a match during your visit.
Paris is the perfect place to bask in luxuries, and it has plenty of accommodations to make this possible. A stay in Hotel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe is a tempting tavern of grandeur and excellence. With plenty of Paris hotels to suit all budgets, the city oozes with sophistication regardless of where you stay.
Bastille Day is a great time to join in the French culture, as its citizens exhibit their national pride. Taking place on July 14, it celebrates the Storming of the Bastille in 1789. The celebrations around Paris are especially memorable, and nothing quite compares to watching fireworks light up the sky behind the Eiffel Tower.
More people visit Paris during the spring and summer, which means higher prices for transportation and hotel rooms. Conversely, visits in the fall or winter tend to be more affordable.
Predictably, spring and fall present the most comfortable temperatures. However, summer and winter are not too uncomfortable, especially for visitors coming from many parts of the world with more extreme climates.
Those looking for a true Parisian experience should avoid making the trip during the summer, since that is when locals spend their own vacation time out in the city. However, the people-flooded streets are offset by the open-air festivals and similar events held during these sunny months.
