Hi brin,

I am not acquainted with the Lindbergh.
Do they offer rates for singles? I have looked at three different sites and they keep coming up with doubles only.

My Lady Wife and I always stay at the Hotel Bonaparte. They do have singles for about 70E including bkfst.

Thanks, I'll check it out now. The Lindbergh has a great location but the price is over 110E ... I am trying to "budget" on this adventure.

Check directly with the Claude Bernard. They have single rates with a number of 'specials' - we talked with the local desk/reservations people and had good results. Nice 3Star; clean, comfortable, great location.

ira,

stupid question ... what order does one "dial" the number in Paris? I only call home but have never needed to phone over!

I read the many reviews on the web about the cat and the portuegese (sp) night clerk ... everything sounds so positive and the location is terrific. I do appreciate your help. thanks bb

Are you calling from the US? You would dial 011 33 followed by the phone number. Phone numbers in France start with a zero which you would drop when dialing from the US. For example if the number is : 01 45 65 54 34 you would dial 011 33 1 45 65 54 34

I never phone directly from my telephone. I get a calling card from the local corner store, and end up paying less than 10 cents per minute. The nice thing about such cards is that there are no surprise charges on your phone bill. If you are going to be doing more than one or two international phone calls, I'd highly suggest getting one.

That's a good tip, WillTravel. Phone cards I associate with phoning from overseas to home and not the reverse.

You can open an account with pennytalk, and you can get way less than 10 cents a minute. I phone australia for 4 cents a minute from the U.S

Hi

If you dial 1016868 before the 011 you can call France for 10cts/min.

Dial 1010987 and it will be 39cts + 3cts/min

You might also consider the Hotel Residence Monge at 55, rue Monge. I think they have a web site at www.hotelmonge.com . Call Julie at the front desk for a reservation: 011 33 1 43 45 87 90. Make a good list of questions before you make the call to make sure you don't forget to ask.

Phone cards are nice if you making a number of calls, but for a five minute call to France to make a reservation, just dial it and get it over with.

could you move a few blocks over to the 5th? Besides the Residence Monge, another hotel that seems to be almost universally praised is the St-Jacques, and the website appears to show lots of charm.

From Frommers "Europe on $25 a Day". We were all a lot younger then.

Right.

A properly aged Balsamic, I presume?

Ira-I was hoping for some romantic type story of stumbling across it when your other hotel was full. Oh well, at least you have found a place you really like and have been able to recommend it to so many other travelers.
