    I was not very impressed but if you come to Paris you would not visit it, especially in its architecture.

    Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Half the fun is getting there, so much traffic. Inside is beautiful.  more »

    Gloomy and austere, unique in its kind in Paris. Not impressed us particularly but for its architecture and its history is a monument not to be missed.

    This is a great place to enjoy a meal. Delicious food with great service. Outside and inside seating.

    The worst service I have received in Paris ever. I requested a cappuccino and took almost 35 minutes to get. People around me being served food and drinks in the meantime. It cost 8 euros, I guess because the time I waited sitting on a table...This is why I think tipping is a good idea- rewards good service and discourages bad service.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
