At first the task of finding a hotel from Paris seemed daunting. It would be easy with a bottomless wallet, but for the rest of us, this might not be as easy as one could imagine. Our criteria were the following:
- A city center hotel, from where you can easily walk around the city without using the metro or taxis
- Price under 500€/night (went slightly over)
- Beautiful rooms that are big enough for us
- Good customer service according to reviews like the ones found on TripAdvisor.
I was having trouble finding one, but thankfully got some help from my Amex Platinum Concierge, who recommended that we stay at the Grand Hotel du Palais Royal Hotel (yes, a long name, but you’ll get the hang of it after a while). It’s a Small Luxury Hotel property located right next to the Louvre, which was perfect for us. At first I thought getting a hotel from Champs Elysee would be best, but after seeing the area I knew I was wrong. The location of our hotel was far better for us.
