    Default Getting to Hôtel d'Espagne part 1

    I did a little walking today. Here's some info that might be helpful for some people. In case you want to skip this, I'll say right now, I also saw the following hotels right next to the Hotel d'Espagne: Hotel Corona, Hotel Aston, Hotel des Arts, Hotel Mondial, Hotel du Bresil and more. Forgive me, I took these photos in reverse order from what I'm putting here so it's a little weird.
    Here's a snapshot from Google Maps.

    The A is the Emeraude Hôtel d'Espagne. The R is the Grand Rex. To get to the hotel, take Rue Rougemont from Boulevard Poissonière. It's not hard to find once you look down the street. You can't miss that BNP Paribas (a bank) (1)
    Looking down Rue Rougemont from Blvd Poissonnière, to the left you see (2) and (3)

    Notice that unlike on the map, the Grands Boulevards metro stop is right there and to the right (4)
    and (5)
    Notice that to the right of the red wrong way sign, you can see part of the R of the Rex sign here. It's not far as you can see. When I was there, there was a closed gate where the X is on the map; so, it looks like we can't take the convenient short cut.
    to be continued ...

    So, walk down rue Rougemont and take a left. Once you get to rue de Trévise ahead will look like (6)
    if you turn around and look back (7)

    you will turn left and go under a tunnel to get to the hotel, but if you look the other way down rue de Trévise, it will look like (8.)

    After you go under the tunnel and get to the front of the hotel, if you look back you see (9)

    and the restaurant across this little street (10)

    and if you look in the direction you just came past where the hotel is (11)

    and ok, here's the front of the hotel itself (12)


    if you keep going and turn right, you see (13)
    or if you turn left, you see (14)
    That's where you would come from if you took that first left after turning left on rue Rougemont or the closed shortcut.
    Sorry if that was a little ridiculous with too many photos and stuff.
    Let me know if you have any questions with similar stuff. Who knows, maybe I can take more photos or something.

    Hah wow, I didn't make the connection until I saw these pictures, but this hotel is right near my old school at 34 rue de Trévise. I walked by it everyday for two months. Would sometimes even eat in that restaurant. I'll have to stop in and say hello to the gang!

    Those buildings looked familiar! I used to walk past the BNP building every day on my way to that school. I wonder how the profs are doing.

    eh, good stuff.
    anyway, ive been reading about paris.. and my travel agents gave me some magazines..and there are so many tours to choose from!
    for example, a 3 course dinner at altitude 95 + 1 hour cruise on river seine + moulin rouge show = about 200euros, worth it? heh
    u think tours are the easiest way to see paris? i mena, at least its organized..heh

    I think the best way to see Paris is on foot with a map. Or buy a ticket for the tour bus which allows you to hop and and off as you like, also the batobus riverboat does the same, you buy a ticket and get on and off at different points on the Seine.

    The Moulin Rouge is a smart dress only venue for anyone thinking of going and it's expensive. But i guess if you are travelling that far it'll be worth it.

    Haha, I was at the Guadalajara venue and was inches from touching her, as she reached out to the crowd during the encore, until the security guy's backup arrived and managed to push us back.

    We'll see... I'm wiry. ;-)

    The more the merrier.

    Well, the first post does tell you hotels that folks will be staying at and as you may have already been made aware that most are booked at the Hotel d'Espagne.

    The best thing you can do is contact them directly via e-mail or telephone -- http://www.hotels-emeraude.com/hotel...esentation.htm

    You can also take a look at the map here -- http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio...de_France.html . Just zoom in and you can see the locations of other hotels near Le Grand Rex and Hotel d'Espagne. ;-)
