Went to the victoria hotel for my daughter and her friends 18th birthday.We booked a transfer from charles de gaulle airport with odyssee transfer got number off internet they were very good and waiting for us at airport.On arrival at hotel we were too early to check in so had a look around.We went back to check in and another receptoinist said the rooms we were given are noisy so he moved us to the fourth floor.the rooms are small but clean enough no tea or coffee facilities or hairdryer and in august the rooms are very stuffy and hot.Some of the staff are rude but Freddie was very helpful and gave us some great advice on places to eat and visit he booked our return transfer back from hotel with shuttle bus.the hotel is only a two star and is in need of reviewing afew secutity procedures as number of your room is on the key just behind desk so if your key is taken they know exactily were to go..The area around the hotel is cheaper to eat and drink than the other parts and every meal we had was excellent with friendily staff.the icecream shop right by the hotel was wicked and they make the icecream like a flower the staff in there were great too.We got a two day bus pass there is alot off choice it had four routes and you could go on all of them to change you had to wait for route to overlap,it took us to the effiel tower which was brilliant we walked to levels then paid for lift to top as this que was the shortest you need moderate fitness to do this!.We also went on the river on a boat at dusk which we booked at hotel they go every 20mins We also travelled on the metro which is close to the hotel and fairly reasonable you can buy 10 tickets for about thirteen euros and the system is quite easy to work out even for me! We got back to the hotel around midnight during our stay,we had noticed alot of young men hang around by the arches we had to go under to reach the hotel their seemed alot on our last night and on goind to bed we could here alot of noise glad we had beem moved from ground floor.I was woken about 1am by them they were fighting and hitting a man by the hotel opposite they had metal poles battering him, the police came and they threw tear gas at them the smoke went into the lower rooms and the guests demanded to be moved i know the hotel cannot be responsible for this but it was very frightening some guests had to run through it coughing and crying to get to their hotel so be careful. my daughter slept through it we saw nothing else or had any trouble.
