"Good for a couple of nights" Cactus Tip by kevin71

Cactus, Paris: 165 reviews and 1 photos

No frills hotel, but great for a couple of nights. After a last minute decision to go to Paris over the July 4th weekend (we live in Germany), we found what appeared to be the last family suite in Paris. (Note, most hotels in France limit you to 4 persons per room). A parking garage was located about two blocks away, and we were able to get a special discount rate since we left the car for the weekend (no driving in/out each day). We arrived about 2 hours after check in began. The "suite" was two hotel rooms across from one another, at the end of the hall, with a third door that closed off the two rooms from the rest of the hallway. One of the two rooms had been cleaned, the other had not. We locked our bags in the clean room and headed out for Notre Dame Cathedral; when we returned the other room had been cleaned. Friendly staff, very helpful with directions. Continental breakfast in the mornings. Walking to the Eiffel Tower only took about 30 minutes, with three small children in tow. Ten minute walk to the bus stops.

Unique Qualities: Family suite for 5. Free wireless, small safe in each room. Continental breakfast. Nice view of the Eiffel Tower from the street, especially at night when it was lit up. Several restuarants and bakeries nearby. Fairly centrally located. Parking garage and metro station nearby.
