Stayed between Thursday 16th and Sunday 19th Feb 2012 and can report a truly lovely stay. Easy access (200metres) from Esplanade de la defense on metro line no1. Aprox 40mins from Gare Du Nord. The staff are exceptional and nothing is too much trouble. The attention to detail is 100% in every respect. Do not expect this to be a cheap deal...it is high end, high quality and perfect in every respect. I am sure there are cheaper beds in Paris but this is just right.....and comfy like you cannot imagine!!
The staff recommended a meal at Les Ombres restaurant.....fantastic....romantic on another level!
The staff recommended a dinner cruise with La Marina at the quay in front of La Museum D'Orsay...again fantastic...I canot recoment this enough...but go at night and enjoy the lights.
The centre of Paris remains truly romantic and feels a very safe place for travellers.
Took a trip to Montmatre/ Sacre Coeur....would not recommend this unless you enjoy being continually harassed by men pressurizing you into buying rubbish bangles, watches and other worthless imitation goods. I gained the impression that these men were perhaps from Africa or of African descent....they made their presence felt and were intimidating and persistent. Very little police presence in Sacre Couer, unlike the centre of Paris...perhaps this influences the hawkers choice of venue!
Hotel de la defense....bravo!
