Accommodation in Paris: Sofitel La Défense

During our trip in Paris, we decided to stay at a 5-star hotel, as I found out through several researches that even 4-star hotels in Paris are mostly not that good and clean. We want cleanliness, and that’s very important to us! As we’ve stayed at some Novotel hotels on other trips (to other places) we therefore went for a 5 star hotel in the Accor branch – Sofitel, of course.

There are several Sofitel Hotels to be find in Paris, and most of them are fully booked most of the time. We booked a room at Sofitel La Défense, mainly because it is not a place with heavy traffic. We actually booked a Superior room, but as we arrived, the hotel manager offered us a Luxury Room- free of charge. I think that was a very kind gesture, and excellent service. Kudos! 😉 Continue reading “Accommodation in Paris: Sofitel La Défense”

Les 4 Temps – Shopping in La Défense, Paris

I’ve written about Les 4 Temps, located in La Défense, in one of my previous posts. It is the largest shopping mall in Europe. It is to find near Grande Arche in La Défense. It has everything, and its location in La Défense is perfect, because La Défense is a big business district of Paris. It is worth a visit, not only for shopping but also if you want to eat 😉

Here are just some pictures from 4 Temps.

La Défense – Paris

Last week, I went to Paris for 5 days to get a break from my everyday life. I have not been to Paris before, and have heard almost all of my friends, who have been there, telling that it’s a very beautiful and a romantic place – except one, who said it’s only a must visit to see some of the popular places, but that the city itself isn’t worth all the hype. I must admit, that I share the same opinion after experiencing the atmosphere of Paris – Paris is crowded, busy, and definitely not clean at all, and I don’t feel it’s as romantic as people tell you – but it depends on taste for sure. Compared to Rome, Paris isn’t my cup of tea, and I love Rome more. Though I’m going to give you guys a small guide and share my experiences with Paris and the places I went to.
