I agree.

Pierre Hermé is so much better than Ladurée. Once you've tasted PH pastries & macarons you never want to go back to Ladurée.
I think everyone coming to Paris should try his pâtisserie.

There are a lot of boutique inexpensive hotels in Paris. I suggest going to tripadvisor and looking for one in one of the central arrondissements! I'm on the lookout for that perfect boutique hotel so I've been to a different one each time I go to Paris.

I love St. Germain! It's so chic and I love walking around and checking out all the stores. Even though it's touristy, I had a cafe creme at Les Deux Magots the last time I was there and it was perfect!

Thank you! I think we've decided to stay in the Latin Quarter. Although it's not 'hip' anymore, I want to stay there for the history.

Help! Paris Trip Planning.
Hi everyone,

Me and two of my friends are planning to go to Paris in about 4 weeks.
I am responsible for all the arrangements because I'm the only who has finished all my exams.

But I've run into some problems. Mostly in choosing which hotel to choose from. As I am not at all familiar with Paris apart from how it is divided into sections.

Would you guys be so kind to help me come up with a few suggestions?

Below is my plan:
- We are taking the Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord.
- Places that we are planning to visit: the Louvre, Champs Elysee, possibly the Eiffel Tower, Rue de Rivoli.
- We would also like to be around an area that has some nice pubs for the night.

Preferably the hotel is near most of the above attractions. and of course the Gare du Nord

Budget is around £100 per night.

Thanks in advance!

(I didn't know where exactly to start this thread, so if it is in the wrong section, please help me move it )

We just booked the Hotel Du Roy for 3 nights, and we paid £320 each for the hotel, which is apparently in a good location, and the Eurostar return trip.

I would recommend the Hotel Britannique. http://www.hotel-britannique.fr/index.html

It's located on Avenue Victoria, near the Chatelet, direct from Gare du Nord by subway, next to the rue de Rivoli and all the main sites you want to see are a few subway/ bus stations away.

French martini?
I wasn't sure where to put this question, but a few years ago I was in France, and I ordered, or asked for rather, a Martini and got the same drink at most places. They were wonderful, and I did a little research and found that the drinks a pretty much just Martini liquer straight. Does anyone have any idea about that because I'd love to make them for my friends!

Thank you!

^ It's funny because a few years ago I was in California and I asked for a Martini and I never understood was it is they gave me.

Martini is actually a brand. When you ask for a Martini you usually get a Martini Bianco (Martini blanc).
You'll find all the explanations you need (and see George Clooney ) here:
http://www.martini.com/

Hope that helps.

Btw, Martini is one of my favorite drinks.

So helpful, thank you! I agree, I prefer the 'European' version to ours.
