Satri asked me ages ago if I could tell her more about the hotel that I stayed in Paris, as she planned to go there in April. So here it is, some info about New Hotel Saint Lazare. To Satri, sorry for the very late feedback! I hope there’s still time for you to do your booking and get a good rate.
So why did I choose the hotel?
Firstly, it’s literally a few steps away from Liège metro station so it was easy for me to go to anywhere around town. I also felt safe going back late at night as I didn’t have to walk too far from the metro station to the hotel.
Secondly, it was a walking distance away from Théâtre Mogador where I watched The Lion King in French. Also a walking distance away from Galeries Lafayette, the popular department store in Paris where I went to watch a fashion show.
Thirdly, it may be a 2 star hotel, but the facilities are superb. You don’t believe me? Check out these pics.
Nice beds with clean sheets.
Chair, desk and LCD tv.
Squeaky clean and fully working shower.
Shiny toilet and fresh towels.
Can you get these stuffs at a 2 star hotel in Malaysia? I don’t think so. You are lucky if you can get these at a 5 star hotel! I remember staying at a hotel in KL that claims itself to be 7 star, yet when I saw the facilities, I felt like slashing 4 of those stars off their books!
The balconies, taken from the indoor garden. Very French ;-)
The hotel’s signage is clearly visible from the roadside.
Sadly I didn’t take any pic directly in front of the hotel. This is the best that I have.
P.S.: Writing this entry makes me miss Paris...
