Morning All,

Me and my wife plus another a couple are planning a weekend trip to paris. I was wondering if anyone knew any deals or they best packages to get?

We are planning on going next weekend, leaving eaither later Thursday night or early friday morning. Preferably from birmingham airport or i dont mind using the eurostar.

Also if i'm looking to book a hotel, what area should I be looking to book in? (somewhere close to the eiffel tower or something)

Rep left for any help or advice.

Thanks

Was teasing, wife wants to save them to upgrade to zone 2 but that will take another 2yrs of saving.

If you want to pick up a cheaper deal, it's best to book at least a month in advance for eurostar. Cheapest prices return per person is £69 or if you're really lucky, £50. You can get a cheap hotel that does the job for about £50, we stayed in one at Villiers, I think it was called Pavillion etoile Villiers or something, and it was ok, as very close to metro, and not too far from cafés, market or other amenities.

If you're driving, there's always the £20 deals they have for the ferries, I think Metro newspaper was running one a few days ago. Good luck!

You can get yourself a hotel pretty much anywhere and then use the Paris underground service. Their train service is excellent. Well, its fast! and covers pretty much everywhere.

I concur with hippyharry, much faster, and efficient than the tube!

stayed at hotel des arenes just before xmas, great central location,minutes from the metro and easy walking distance from Notre Dame. also handy for all the restaurants and bars in Saint Severin area. don't stay too far out i stayed out near la defense once and travelling in and out the city was very time consuming.
also stayed near the gare du nord, it was a bit dodgy at night. bastille ibis is another hotel fairly central that i found ok.
remember that a coffee in Paris will cost 4 euro so if you can get a cheap breakfast it is worth it.

the eiffel tower isn't that central really.

I don't think it matters all that much where you stay in Paris, because like others have said the Metro is easy and frequent. I stayed in Montmatre (I think it was Jardins de Paris or something similar) when I went last August and it was easy enough to just hop on the Metro and go wherever we wanted to.

We booked quite far in advance and got the £69 return Eurostar tickets so not sure on transport if you're looking to go soon.

One piece of advice I'd offer is not to eat at any of the restaurants anywhere near the Eiffel Tower. Also, when you go to Notre Dame, if you cross over the other side of the river and walk a bit further away from where all the tourists etc are milling around and up the cobblestone alleys, there are some really really nice restaurants.

Have a nice time :)

this is the Saint Severin area. also further up the hill is Rue Mouffetard, again great restaurants and markets.
