Do you remember the film “Midnight in Paris” with such perfect scenery? The warmth, the romance, the beauty? That’s Paris! The city of light, the city of love, the city where you wouldn’t dare miss a chance to take the long way back home.
Even though each neighborhood has its own charm, Le Marais is one of my favorites.
Le 9 Hotel Republique, where I stayed, is located right at the Republique metro station, making it easy to hop around town. This was only a bonus though since leaving the neighborhood wasn’t necessary as all my favorite spots (Holy belly, le Comptoir General, le Marche des Enfants Rouges, le Canal St Martin) were just a stone’s throw away.
Our stay was lovely, the room was cozy and the staff very friendly.
Coming back to our room after a long day felt like coming home. We would relax in the lobby for a while with its calm atmosphere, enjoying a cup of complimentary tea with fresh waffles or having a glass of wine at their self service bar. You just choose your drink, use your magnetic card and serve yourself like at home according to your desires.
The hotel is situated only a few minutes walking distance from the Gare du nord train station and is ideally located within the city saving me less traveling time going from place to place, leaving me with more opportunity to inhale the beauty of my surroundings…….
With love from Paris,
