Paris Hotels leaflet This leaflet contains full descriptions of all our Paris hotels. It should be read in conjunction with accompanying Paris offer sheets which contain details and prices of specific breaks. Short Breaks Paris Hotels With such an array of hotels in the French capital, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer variety of standards, locations and prices on offer, especially if you are unfamiliar with Paris. We’re here to make that decision a simple one by providing you with straightforward and unbiased descriptions for each hotel we offer. These hotels feature in a variety of VFB breaks to Paris, offering a choice of gastronomy, culture, exhibitions and more; just select the break to Paris that suits you best and use this leaflet to choose a hotel that features in your break. Free nights available, please see overleaf. Hotel Duquesne Eiffel Our selection of centrally-located hotels All VFB hotels are hand-picked for their standard, location and value for money (not to be confused with low prices!). You can therefore be assured that, whichever hotel you choose, you will never find yourself on the outskirts of the city, nor will you end up in one of the less fashionable areas of Paris. Instead, we stick to the more attractive and romantic quarters, such as the well-known Quartier Latin or La Madeleine; areas where you will always find a good choice of bars, bistros and brasseries, Métro stations and attractions close by. The vast majority are also owner-run and the few chain hotels we do feature are selected only if they offer the same character accommodation. Due to the age and architectural design of city-centre buildings, most Parisian hotels tend to be smaller than their UK counterparts (with correspondingly limited wardrobe and drawer space). However, you will always find comfortable rooms equipped with bath/wc or shower/wc (specified when you book), telephone, TV and double or twin beds. Other features such as air-conditioning or non-smoking rooms are available only where specifically mentioned. Breakfast is always included and, unless otherwise specified, is continental. All hotels have a lift, but please check with us if this is important to you, as some floors may not be served.
