Back from Paris & Ansterdam (Maira); will be glad to offer experience, tips and suggestions on traveling w/ wheelchair-bound spouse

Jump to last reply

Back from a trip with hubby,niece (16 y/o), and sister. Hubby traveling to Europe for the first time since having to use a wheelchair for distance walking. General notes; if anything triggers a question, fire away:

Stayed at 6th Arrond- St. Germain des Pres--- Best Western Left Bank; spacious, comfortable, clean, nice staff, good breakfast. Loved it. Hubby had no problems getting around this wonderful neighborhood. Taxi to Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Paris with a teenager means lots of store browsing and shopping. It was wonderful. Have stayed at other Paris neighborhoods and have to say St. Germain des Pres is enchanting.

On to Amsterdam to visit with friends; stayed a the Tulip Inn about 5 miles from city centre. Highly recommend this hotel; nicest staff and spacious, clean, rooms ($79/double). Thumbs down for their restaurant, though.

For the record, I have a new favorite city in Europe; AMSTERDAM.

I have a couple of recs on restaurants in Paris (dining at Le Ciel de Paris was close to a heavenly experience).

Since there are hundreds of Paris trip reports posted, I will like to offer the special perspective of traveling to Paris and Amsterdam with a wheelchair-bound spouse and a 16 y/o young lady. In summary, highly recommend both as long as you do good planning ahead of time. :-D Any questions?
