I arrived home last night to Ireland after a wonderful four night stay at the quirky townhouse hotel, hotel du continent.
Hotel du continent is in a wonderful location. A leisurely walk up to place de concorde for stunning views of the Eiffel tower and through the beautiful jardin tuilleries (around the corner) brings you to the lourve pyramid! It is well served by public transport links and is close to the metro stop at jardin tuilleries and concorde. The hotel is in close proximity to some lovely resteraunts and cafes(I recommend Ferdi on the same street!) and in a wonderful shopping district!(oops!) we took the metro from Charles de Gaulle for €10 ( a private taxi will cost €75 the hotel can arrange this)
The hotel is decorated in quirky colorful but tasteful decor and each floor represents a different continent. We stayed on the forth floor which had an Asian feel. The room was not large but very comfortable as is typical of French hotels. The room was generously topped up daily with fluffy white towels and toiletries. slippers and dressing gowns were supplied and a hair dryer. The bathroom was fantastic and the shower was wonderful.
The bed was comfortable, plenty of pillows were supplied. There was a double wardrobe with hangers, a safe and mini bar. The tv had an abundance of channels and after one very hectic day of sight seeing we put up our feet and there were many English shows on!
The hotel has a very fun concept that would go well with lazy nights like this- the honesty bar- where you can self serve yourself an alcoholic beverage or maybe a nespresso coffee and you can let reception staff know what you had at checkout! The breakfast bar is lovely, breakfast costs €12 per person but whilst tasty is not that extensive. Breakfast runs from 7-11 and includes croissants, bread and jams, yoghurts, hot chocolates and coffee and juice.
The reception staff are really helpful. Reception operates 24/7. You leave your card with them whilst you go out. Reception staff speak multiple languages. Luggage can be left at reception when you check out and picked up later in the day (:
Lovely hotel I couldn't recommend it more highly! Xox
