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).

My friend Cynthia absolutely loves this hotel, and it does have that certain “historic Paris” look with the exposed wooden beams and tiled floors. Bare bones budget means no elevator or A/C, but for €85-€90 you get a room for two and breakfast. Located near the Odéon station, right at the end of the Passage St-André-des-Arts (and a block from an excellent Internet café).

I first stayed in this hotel almost 35 years ago. In dozens of trips to Paris, the most recent in March 2006, I have returned here.

I love it today, with its warmth and conviviality, as much as I did when, ascending the stairs for the first time so many years ago, a newcomer to Paris, I heard a chambermaid softly humming "La Vie en Rose" to herself as she went about her work. That moment is forever etched in my mind as part of the essence of Paris.

I adore the Hotel St-André-des-Arts.
