Sights of Paris (Part II)

We got extremely lucky with the hotel the first couple of days: we had booked online again from London with Expedia (which really should be paying me for all the times I mentioned them!). The hotel turned out to be a three stars renovated building in a quiet street, and we had the biggest bathroom I had never seen. When we asked to stay longer, we were told it wouldn’t be a problem because they had rooms available. However, we had to pay the regular rate, which was over €155, more than double what we paid through Expedia. And of course, the rooms were not available online anymore…

We browse Expedia again but nothing good came out. The couple of affordable places we saw had terrible reviews and I’m not booking an hotel which has 99% terrible reviews. Eventually, we found another hotel in the same neighborhood to avoid crossing the city with our backpacks again (the subway is not backpack friendly). The room was on the 7th floor and the bathroom was a toilet plus a hose above it for shower. Ugh. The door couldn’t be locked so it flooded everywhere — I mean, could have flooded everywhere if we had had enough water. But at the 7th floor, we only had a trickle… I guess it’s part of the Paris experience.
