Les Jardins du Trocadero
Spread over a total of ten hectares, the Trocadero gardens stretch from the Palais de Chaillot to the Seine and the Eiffel Tower . A pond surrounded by an array of stone and gilded bronze statues and fountains forms a delightful centerpiece. Rollerblade enthusiasts meet here to practice in the midst of this harmony, weaving their way past surprised onlookers and lovers clasped in warm embraces. Although this is a pleasant place, the rollerbladers' presence tends to spoil the gardens' tranquility, making them a lot less peaceful than the Tuileries gardens, for example. However the view you get from here of the Eiffel Tower (especially at night, when it's lit up) and over the Palais de Chaillot more than makes up for this, giving these gardens their own special charm.
The hotel looks nice from outside and has a good location. But we were not so lucky to see our napoleon suite with jacuzzi and view to eiffel tour. Simply because it was taken by somebody else! We booked the suite almost 3 weeks in advance and one week before our arrival we received the cofirmation by email (directly from the hotel). Upon our arrival after a long trip, we learnt that the suite was not free anymore. Rude and incompetent staff tried for one hour to find us a room in another hotel. We were sent to a small 3 star hotel, on a horrible street (where we didn't stay, the suite they wanted to give us there costed 205 euro!!!).
Trying to apologise the hotel wanted to offer us a bottle of wine the next time we stay there. There's no way, there won't be next time!
