France to Germany

I finished up my French Sampler tour this morning. After dropping the departing tour members at the airport in Nice, France I drove north to get ready for my upcoming Oberammergau & Oktoberfest tour.

It was a beautiful, sunny day with light traffic on the roads. Great for driving, and with some fabulous scenery. I followed a route long the Riviera from France into Italy, then north through the Alps into southern Germany.

This hotel highlights just how unreliable the French star rating system is when it comes to choosing hotels. While the government only gives it two stars, the de la Paix is cleaner and more stylish than many three-star hotels I’ve been in. The interior is done in chocolate-brown leather and wood furnishings, with gleaming bathrooms that are modern and fully functional. Both rooms and bathrooms are on the small side, but that’s not unusual for Paris.

It also has many of the things you would expect from a pricier hotel, like 24-hour desk service, an elevator (tiny!) and air conditioning. About the only things it lacks are a minibar and English stations on the TV. A great budget option in the ritzy 7th district.
