Reviews - What do customers think about Paris, Hotels and More (Midsize)?
Love this book! Dec 4, 2007
This book has it all... photos, information, & compact size. From page one you're hooked. Hotels are grouped into arrondissements with a lovely drawn map preceding each section. The photos are superb and really capture a feeling. I must commend the photographer(s). The book's vibe is hip and French. Everything you need is in the book... photos, hotel info including rates, websites, & great description. It certainly is a resource.
A Love Affair of a Book Jun 13, 2007
Written in English, French and German, "Paris" not just a guide book, but a memory book of exquisite design, superb photographs, and the highest quality printing on thick, finely-textured paper. Note that the type is a bit small, even with reading glasses.
These featured photos from the internal pages of the book don't fully capture its beauty and artistic design. When was the last time you ran your fingers over thick, finely-textured paper and experienced genuine quality for $16.40? Like Paris, this book is not "slick". It's the equivalent of a Bergdorf Goodman cashmere sweater.
Organized by arrondisement or neighborhood, each page captures the very soul and character of Paris, immersing the reader in the atmosphere and sensuality of the streets, shops, hotels and restaurants. I was completely seduced by each page.
Anjelika Taschen introduces both the seasoned explorer of Parisian neighborhoods and the first-time visitor to new haunts. Stop by the Grande Herboristerie Parisienne de la Place Clichy, a shop stocking more than 900 herbs that produce an infinite number of individually-prepared remedies for a multitude of modern maladies. I've been to Paris more times than I can count, and I found many new experiences for my Sept. visit.
Plan ahead in your gift giving or personal travel schedule. Unfortunately, this jewel of a guide book is not immediately available in the U.S. and is on a 1-3 week delivery. Buy a few copies in advance and put them in the closet. You will have a unique, memorable gift for special friends, family and business colleagues of every age, male and female.
