Bad location for travel to Paris
Posted Aug 8, 2014
Mini bus service is non existent in evening meaning you are reliant on the bus service which is erratic and does not stop near the hotel but in a street a way round the corner which until you are completely aware of your surroundings is not easy to work out.. very traumatic experience first time that happened resulting in being lost in a very dodgy area down the way as we missed the stop and had to get bus back.... Metro service from Pont de Sevres to Paris takes a good half hour to Trocadero on a dodgy dirty train through some less than pleasant feeling area's, did not feel comfortable or safe and would not be repeating that experience again.... It is a very bland business park and industrial area, there is a shopping mall/district down the road and there are some restaurants locally to that which are not bad but not a holiday experience, this is not somewhere I would actively come on holiday and felt that the location of the hotel and all the stress involved in travelling to and from it ruined out holiday, we could not have an evening in central Paris as it was far too difficult to get back to after 7pm... The hotel restaurant was adequate but quite expensive for the food provided... The hotel was busy bit mainly with tourists using a coach tour system so they were not reliant on the travel connections.. We booked the hotel as it had a pool which we only used once as it was tiny and not good to use if more than 5 people were in it.... For a holiday we would not book again.
