"A stunning stay in Paris"
I stayed at Hotel Thoumieux from Thursday 08/10 through to 11/10. The Hotel is located centrally to everything such as The Effiel Tower 15 minute walk, Champs Elyees 15 minute walk, River Seine 5 minutes. Notra Damn is a wonderful 45 minute walk however, you are able to hop and hop off a boat that stops at 5-6 key landmarks at a cost of around £14 per person an absolute bargain. The hotel is located on what appears to be a busy street, with a variety of restaurants (inc Japanese,French etc) along with a number of Parisean Cafes, pattiseries, Starbucks, clothes shops, jewellery store, the list is endless. Perfect,perfect,perfect. Once in the hotel it feels very different, peaceful, wonderful decor, fresh, clean and very relaxed. There is a lovely scent in the air, the hotel staff are attentive, friendly. There isnt anything they wont do to assist you. I note on several reviews the reference to no lift and only stairs for 3 floors, i have to disagree that this is an issue. Whilst there is no lift the small sections of windy stairs you climb are a comfortable climb, there are seats on the landing and an area on the first floor where you can relax with cake kindly provided by the hotel. There are two restaurants, one being a brasserie and the other 2 star michelin, absolutely exquiste, one reasonably priced the other pricey you get what you pay for! Breakfast we often ventured out as the cost is significantly different on the street to the hotel, clearly no issue on the doorstep!
