Whatever your fancy- art, culture, music, nightlife, chapels or the best of what's good to eat- Paris has it all. Walk on the glass blocks at Musee D'Orsay.

Comfort Inn Mouffetard/Latin Quarter

Hotel | "Comfort Inn"

Bare bones. Cleanliness not high on list in sleeping spaces. Dirty linens. Convenient location near Metro and Latin Quarter. Basic complimentary breakfast of juice, coffee or tea along with a few other selections. The beds sagged and springs were coming through. Staff not accomodating at all!

La Papillote

Restaurant

Quote:
We dined at La Papillote, 3, rue du Pot de Fer (telephone-01 43 31 75 66)

Average food, nice atmosphere, outdoor dining available. This restaurant serves a wide variety of meals in a reasonable price range. Not memorable but filling. We had a very decent roasted chicken dinner.
