Found 4th Jun 2010
Just booked flights to go to paris, to go end of june for a weekender.

landing at the CDG airport, so looking for a hotel that you recommend,
im looking for something that not too far from shopping and nice restaurants.

also whats the shopping like there ? is it expensive, being its a inflated city..


Its expensive.

I stayed at

Holiday Inn Garden Court PARIS-TOUR EIFFEL
102 Boulevard de Grenelle

This is on a long main street and has a traditional market out front on some days which is excellent if you dont want to walk far for some nice fresh food.

Its also about a 15 min walk from the tower which I had clear veiw from my hotel room. It was central enough for me to go for a walk alone the Seine and to major tourist spots.

Edit : if you see 2 guys in overcoats with drawing pads near the tower then give them a kick in the nuts for me please. They are useless artists that charge a fortune! aka scammers!


[/B]Portrait not to your liking then?:p

How did you guess, what gave it away?

the shopping mall underneath(yes underneath) the louvre is amazing-paris is beautiful but it IS expensive.

I stayed at the 4* Concorde Lafayette! Expensive it was but dang look out the window and Eiffel tower, has it's own shopping centre connected to it and a brilliant yet expensive bar on the top with windows looking out to the Eiffel Tower.

Paris is expensive but some decent places around. If you like heights check out Tour Montparnasse, you can go right to the top, the lift was extremely fast!!

The shopping area is champs elysees a number of branded shops including LV etc, expensive of what I saw.

This might give some ideas…get
Use google streetmap to look around. You will get more euros for your pound than you have for a while right now, so make the most of it.
