My adult son and I just returned from our memorable trip to Paris!. This hotel is in a great location...not so touristy but right by the metro...a darling little market nearby and lots of places to eat/drink and explore. We had a twin room that...More
We booked this hotel having read other reviews and were very pleased with the result. We had a standard double room for 3 nights and, although on the small side, it had everything we needed for a short stay. The bed was very comfortable and...More
This hotel is located in the Latin Quarter which is the perfect centralized location. It's within walking distance to the metro and close to many great restaurants. The area is not super touristy and we didn't encounter any gypsies in this area. The staff speaks...More

The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
I am wondering why English TV is expected in France, especially in a 2 star hotel. After all, we dont show French TV in the UK or in the US.
Why do English speakers assume that it will be spoken everywhere they go?

Oh, that's an easy question. English the 3rd most spoken language in the world behind Chinese and Spanish, but generally whether in Asia or Europe etc... English is widely spoken as an international language! Where as French is not even in the top ten most commonly spoken international languages. I must also disagree because in Australia , America and the U.K. (and many more counties) there are actually French programs on television including documentary's, news and films! Many other countries I have traveled in , and stayed in 2 star hotel always have English channels even if it is only the two main news channels CNN and BBC. For example, I am now in Vietnam and there are many English channels on the television, it is the same in most of South East Asia, there is not French Channels here! Why would there be?
In 2013 more than 80 million people visited France, so I don't feel that requesting an English channel even in a two star hotel is too much to ask!
My question to you would have to be "why do the French have such an aversion to speaking English"?
I stayed in the south of France for 3 months early this year and it was very funny how many French people expected me to speak their language and would not try English (even though they knew some) I have now traveled to almost 54 countries, am I expected to speak each and every individual language from every country I travel to? I don't think so.....Only France. Interesting!
