Thread: Paris

  1. #11
    Just went to take a look in II....At the moment, this is all that's available, but I'm pretty sure that I've seen most, if not all of them, at one time or another. Royal Holiday has many more available, and seems to be a better deal.

    If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

    BTW, I'm still keeping track of how many times you annoy me.

    Citadines Paris

    I will be staying in a one bedroom at RHC Citadines in December. Did you use taxis or shuttles for airport or did you take the train at all? Also, any recommendations for restaurants in the area? And did you purchase the metro pass or museum pass online ahead of time or wait until you got to Paris?

    Thanks much!

    Gare de Leon train station is about 5 blocks away, We walked with our rolling luggage From there, when we first got into paris airport we took the bus from the airport and got off the Gare De Leon stop and walked straight to the resort but we did have to make a right on the block since the resort was just off the corner. There were about 5 or 6 restaurants right by the resort.

    I was not aware of the bus option - it cost 54 euro in Monday morning rush hour traffic to get to the resort.
    It cost 36euro to get FROM the resort to the airport on Sunday around 3:30 pm.
    The resort offers an airport shuttle service from an outside company for 16-18 euro per person.

    I would definitely do the bus or train option the next time. the train runs right INTO the airport terminal....I just did not do my homework.

    Directly ACROSS the street/to the right - from the resort are two small cafes - we ate in both and highly recommend them. They cafes all seem to have a price fix - that includes appetizer/entree/dessert and can range from 18-25 euro....and even less in some other areas. We found them a very good value with great variety and selections.

    The resort staff will direct you to where u can buy your metro pass....you leave the resort turning right, walk to the corner, make another right and the 'cigar store' will be a few stores down from the corner. You need a photo to put on the pass - it is good for life! - and the resort will copy your drivers license for you. It also comes with a refillable plastic card and fits nicely in a small case.

    Do not buy the museum pass ahead of time as they charge u 13 euro to mail it! The tourist office is right in the Gard de Lyon station which is an easy walk from the resort.
    Got to run, more later!

    What time to visit?

    My daughter and I will be visiting Paris in 2012. We were originally planning to go in March because it would be her 18th birthday that month (celebrating birthday and graduation) but what time of the year would you all suggest we go?

    Also, how far in advance should we book our stay with RHC?

    I will have 60K points to work with so any help would be greatly appreciated, as I have not used my membership yet and this will be our first reservation.

    Thanks in advance,

    Booking for Royal Holiday

    It depends a bit on where you want to stay and for how long.

    If you want to stay in an apartment, you will need to go with Citadines Apart'hotel, which I am told is quite nice and the location is OK - and their prime season (costs more points) is July, August, and October. You will have plenty of points for two weeks there in non-prime season. And you can get a week and a half in prime. The Napoleon is a lovely hotel in a lovely location but its prime season May, June, September, October.

    March could still be a little cool and rainy - April was nice when I was there two years ago- and you aren't in prime tourist season, so things aren't quite so mobbed. And your points will go further.

    As to how far ahead of time to book, the earlier the better. You could book in April at Citadines right now and you could book in March at the Napoleon now. I would certainly start checking twelve months ahead of when you want to go.

    Hotel Napoleon

    Just back from 2 weeks here. SamH's write-up on the first page nails the overall overview.

    We were told that very few people stay there for more than 3 days. Since we would be there for 2 weeks we were upgraded to a "better" room. SamH's description sounds pretty much like our room too!

    The location was excellent for metro and bus access.

    The location was poor for us looking for an American breakfast in the area. We passed on the breakfast at the hotel (26 euros pp). A few places in the area were open for a Continental breakfast but a croissant and coffee (especially since I don't drink coffee) is insufficient for me.

    Are any of the RHC/Citadines locations on the Left Bank?

    Check out the St Germain location. If I am remembering correctly, St Germain is in/very close to the Left Bank.

    Exclamation Paris locations

    While there are many Citandines in Paris, Royal Holiday has only the one that is near the Opera Bastille and Gare de Lyons - not on the left bank. I am staying there in December - will report in.

    Anyone know what is going on with Crowne Plaza (New York) and Royal Holiday? There are no longer any suites (not that the suite was really worthy of the name) and they only released three months of 2011?
