When i was stationed in Germany, we went to Switzerland and then drove back through France and Belgium, but we never did make it to Paris. Sometimes i wish we had, because when you think of Paris, you think of romance with someone special in your life. So i thought i would write a short review of some nice Hotels in Paris city centre .


This beautiful hotel is situated in a famous area of Paris close to the Champs Elysee's area and you can't get more romantic than that. This is where the perfume houses, fine restaurants and trendy boutiques can be found. It's a lady's paradise and they will feel like they have gone the heaven. The hotel has large rooms with marble bathrooms and full facilities. The hotel has two outstanding restaurants and is a 5 star category hotel .


This hotel is located South of the River Seine not far from Invalides. The hotel is within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower. Mind you i would need a parachute with me before i went up that thing ha!. People report that there are many good restaurants and classy bars in the area. The rooms have recently been renovated and are medium in size and it is a great place to stay if you are on a budget holiday. The rooms have an en-suite bathroom, satellite TV and internet access. Meals, the hotel offers breakfast and a buffet every day.


The Grand hotel Dore, is a magic little hotel with cozy medium sized rooms and was renovated in 2006. The hotel got a high satisfaction rating in trip advisor  top 8%. It has a small sized lobby 1 lift and 6 floors. This hotel does not have a restaurant, however breakfast is served on the ground floor.Not literally of course otherwise they would not be in the top 8% ha!. It is a 3 star hotel managed by one of the oldest established families  in the hotel business  and it is close to the main city attractions.

So i hope one day you can find the time to go to Paris and for the kids Euro Disney is not that far away. What a day out for them that would be.
