    • Hotels in London & Paris

      Paris Apr 11, 2014 at 8:36 AM

      Hello!

      I am looking for recommendations for a hotel in Paris and London. Nothing super expensive but nice. Me and my friend are staying 1 additional night on each city at the end of a tour and since I'm not really familiar with either one I need recommendations. We're looking for an area that's safe and has a good nightlife (bars not nightclubs), cafés, etc. and that is relatively close/accessible to the Eurostar station in Paris and Heathrow in London. Please advise. Thanks in advance!!

    • EU Certified Voltage Converter

      Paris 8 hours ago

      We are taking a river cruise in France early in May. We want to use a voltage converter so we can plug in my wife’s 40 watt hair curler, my electric shaver, a cell phone charger and a Kindle charger, all of which run on 115volts. Literature for the cruise line states that “voltage converters must be EU certified.” I have googled the phrase any number of times and also have read the specs for many voltage converter advertisements but have never found any which state that they are “EU certified.” What does the phrase really mean? What do I look for in the specs that will enable me to choose a converter which will satisfy the requirement?

      Thank you very much.

      If we don't have much time, which arrondissement would be your pick for us to try and find a hotel or B&B in? A bit about us: early 30s Canadians, not big into partying but would love to see the art, the architecture, the food.. pretty typical tourist stuff probably. lol

      Also, if you can recommend a nice place to stay (not much more than 100eu / night) with a private en suite.. good location (as mentioned above), cute/romantic..that'd be awesome!

I need to purchase a ticket from CGD to Paris Nord - then get from Paris Nord to Porte de Champerret (which is close to my hotel - I know 2.4km from centre!). From here I wish to travel to Versailles on this day as my arrival is fairly early so could make the afternoon 1/2 day tour.

      My question is this - Is there a day pass that I may purchase for airport to Paris and to versailles in one? I will use my Paris Pass for any internal travel (zone 1-3) but am hoping there is a quick, easy and cost effective way to manage this route?

      Any assistance is most welcome.

      Just info for anyone in Paris or going soon, as of tomorrow Saturday 12th April 2014 the Paris Zoo or Zoo de Vincennes re-opens its doors for the first time in 3 years. At first feared that it would be closed forever, the necessary funds have been found for the renovations. Unfortunately the entrance price reflects the fact that it now has to be paid for : 22€ for an adult.
