  1. The Grand Hotel Leveque sounds a real gem, with helpful staff and a good location. As you say, you were going to be out and about all day. It makes sense to get somewhere convenient and modest, as all you need is a good bed and bathroom.

    Sometimes I think people assume the air of an experienced traveller far more than their actually travel experience warrants. Getting an apartment in Paris sounds grand, but many of them are actually quite small and may not even have an elevator (information gleaned from a family member who lives not too far from where you stayed). A good hotel has its uses!

    • Very, very true! I was caught in the middle of the apartment vs. hotel debate on a popular travel forum where some very nice and experienced travelers felt I made a mistake not getting an apartment. This put a little unnecessary worry on me since this was our first ever trip to Paris.

      After our arrival and first few moments there, I knew we had made the right decision. It all comes down to what you want and what you plan on doing. A hotel was perfect for us.

      Again thanks for reading and sharing. I really appreciate it! 🙂

  2. Its not like.. hotels are always better than apartments. When you are on a budget then its totally obvious to rent an apartment plus to live like a local citizen is also one thing which can only be achieved by renting an apartment not hotel. So in my opinion apartments and hotels both have their pros and cons. I have been in Paris and I rented an apartment and everything was fine. That was according to my budget and comfortable.

    • Absolutely. There is no right or wrong. It depends on what you want. As you said, there are pros and cons to both. But there are some who get really adamant about their preference. To them I say, who really cares which one. You’re in Paris! Enjoy! 🙂
