Vacations & Travel - - Tried & Tested - By John Borth­wick novotel­

'The heart of Paris' is by def­i­ni­tion an en­vi­able ad­dress and Novotel Paris les Halles is happy to both claim it and share it.

Make this your tem­po­rary Paris ad­dress and you’re sur­rounded for starters by great art, with the Lou­vre and Pom­pi­dou Cen­tre just a few min­utes walk. Even closer is the un­der­ground hub of Gare Châtelet-Les Halles at the heart of the vast Paris Metro web; it’s your di­rect por­tal to Charles de Gaulle and Orly air­ports, Euro Dis­ney, La De­fense, Gare du Nord, Champs-Elysées and the

Arc de Tri­om­phe. The Novotel Paris les Halles is a modern, four-star ho­tel geared to both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers, in­clud­ing fam­i­lies. With 285 rooms, this is a large es­tab­lish­ment but it is nei­ther im­per­sonal nor crowded. The rooms are spa­cious (es­pe­cially by some Euro­pean stan­dards) and fea­ture all the ac­cou­trements you’d ex­pect, in­clud­ing a flat-screen TV (with plenty of chan­nels and lan­guages), a safe for your be­long­ings and WiFi. There are also rooms for guests with re­duced mo­bil­ity, plus a 24-hour gym. In the restau­rant you dine very well (of course, it’s Paris) be­neath a spec­tac­u­lar atrium. Mean­while, next door is the newly ren­o­vated Fo­rum des Halles with more restau­rants and over 100 stores. In all, a most en­vi­able ad­dress.
