Accommodation
Tickets
Gourmet Paris
Paris is internationally
renowned for its wide range of
hotels, from small family
establishments to de luxe
palaces, with a capacity of
some 75,000 rooms.
Seats can be booked through
specialist agencies or ticket
offices.
Here are some addresses:
French gastronomy is a star
whose reputation is firmly
established: country dishes
or nouvelle cuisine, Breton
crêpes or world food — France
has a sense of taste! So, in
the time-honoured tradition
of classic French cuisine, cross
the threshold of the capital’s
excellent brasseries, with their
tempting menus and stylish
service, plus a certain something
that makes these places, often
steeped in history, so utterly
charming.
Tourist tax
The “taxe de séjour” ranges
from 0.20 to 1.50€ per person
per night according to the
category of the establishment
(hotel, aparthotel, furnished
apartment, campsite, bed
and breakfast, youth hostel
and other accommodation
centres for young people).
Reservations
To avoid any potential dispute,
it is highly advisable to request
written confirmation of your
booking, indicating the dates
of your stay, prices (inclusive
of tax), together with the room
type, facilities available and
terms of cancellation.
Accommodation for Paris
and Île-de-France may be
booked at the welcome centres
of the Paris Convention and
Visitors Bureau.
Bookings for the city’s hotels
and aparthotels can also

Tipping
Restaurant and accommodation
prices are at the proprietor’s
discretion but must be shown
with all taxes included. These
prices include a service charge
(around 15% of the total price).
If you are pleased with your
meal and service, then feel
free to leave some euros for
the person who served you.
In the heart of the Marais
(see p.31), long queues
stretch through the evening
for pastrami sandwiches.
For a Latin American touch,
delicious parilladas can be
savoured on the Montagne
Sainte-Geneviève (see p.28).
Along the Grands Boulevards
(see p.39) with their mix
of communities, you’ll find
Turkish lentil soup, curries and
Indian biryani among others.
For African specialities, head
off to the foot of Montmartre
to find mafé. Chinese nems
and Peking duck vie for table
space around the place
d’Italie (see p.69). Finally,
Ménilmontant is the
neighbourhood for the best
couscous in Paris. Paris is
indeed a rendezvous not
to be missed for gourmets
the world over…

You are no doubt already
familiar with Paris and
its traditional sights,
its classic monuments and
museums, its ubiquitous
river cruises, etc. … But
Paris is also a dynamic
city where people live,
work and have fun. If you
are keen to experience
this aspect of the city,
through those who live
there, we suggest you
join the Parisians in
their neighbourhoods
to share convivial
moments and their tips
for places to go. All you
have to do is head for the
places they spend their
leisure time – for example,
in cafés, on outings,
at festivals or popular
events.
Check out all the details
on the www.parisinfo.com,
website, under the “Paris
with the Parisians”
heading, for some
memorable moments!
