Calendar of Paris Events

Through February 19
Skate on the Eiffel Tower! This year the ice skating rink on the first level of the Eiffel Tower is back, free for those who already have a ticket for the Tower, open daily 10:30am-10:30pm. Skip the line by taking the stairs, it will help you warm up, too! Skates size 25-47 (EU), sleds and scooters for kids, gloves are required. This year's theme is Ice Hockey, though it will be less brutal than the NHL!

January 11 - February 21
The annual winter sales, aka Les Soldes. Honestly, the rules about when and how sales can take place in France since the economic crise have essentially made the sales irrelevant. There are sales all of the time now (often called "promotion" or "7 Jours BHV" or something like that).

Mº St-Sulpice

An old-fashioned budget hotel with friendly staff near St-Germain-des-Prés. The relatively spacious rooms, furnished with elegant wooden armoires and furnishings, have been redone in 2006 with bright and cheery provençal fabrics, air conditioning, and sound-proofed windows. They still have empty mini-fridges that you can stock with your own drinks and snacks (rare in Paris). Services may be basic, but the location in the heart of St-Germain about 30 steps from place St-Sulpice is fabulous, and they have WiFi and an adorable little garden courtyard off the breakfast room.

29 rooms, refrigerator, WiFi, A/C. Doubles from €147
