COMING: Pratic Hotel, Paris



I booked my accommodation at Pratic Hotel in Paris to be close to friends, not by extensive research. This might prove to be a mistake, at least according to those leaving their rating of Pratic Hotel at tripadvisor.com. 161 guests has ranked this hotel as number 1163 of a total of 1839 hotels in the French capital. Let us hope I am among the 12% that find this hotel excellent.

Hotel Pratic is located in 9 rue d'Ormesson by Marché Sainte Catherine in the historic Le Marais area of Paris, holding treasures as Place des Vosges, the Bastille opera and the Nicolas Flamel House. Le Marais is the home of a mix of Jews (found in Rue des Rosiers), North Africans,  artists and a large gay community.

The hotel states that all rooms have been recently renovated and redecorated according to the Vieux Paris Art style. They are all equipped with television, telephones, modem plugs, hairdryer, safety deposit-box and are completely sound proof. The latter is important as several of the reviewers at tripadvisor stated that the night life around the Marché Sainte Catherine is quite hectic.

I found a vacant single room at Pratic hotel at average price of 77 EUR per nigt (I am staying four), a nice price  Other facilities is that breakfast is included, wireless internet access, safety deposit box on all rooms, ironing board, and flat screen TV.

I look forward to my stay in Paris, but I wonder whether I have made the right choice. My friends have stayed there recently and been happy, but I will give my opinion in my review of the hotel here on Enjoy Food & Travel.
