Review: Great hostel, newly built, relaxed vibe with friendly staff. Downstairs has a little cafe for breakfast and lunch and there are also bakeries and restaurants nearby. The rooms are small but the cleanliness makes up for it.

Review:A tourist must see destination that stretches from the L’Arc de Triomphe to the Palace de la Concorde. Beautiful street line with numerous restaurants and luxury boutiques. If you love to shop, this is for you! If you’re like me and not a fan of shopping, it’s still worth the stroll.

L’Afghani

Review

Review: Very small Afghani restaurant settled in the residental area adjacent to the Sacre Coeur. We stumbled on this place on our walk back and it ended up one of the best/ random surprises. I do not recommend for large groups and there may be a small wait time as there in only one person as the host and server
