Radisson SAS Hotel Boulogne Paris (review, photos, video)

The trip did not start that well, as I had to hang around and wait for my room to be ready for over 3 hours, with conflicting stories from reception during that time. Basically I think the hotel had been very full the night before with large parties that all only checked out late so they had a huge catch-up. They implied as I was here they would give my room priority – but they did not.

There was good news though as my assistant who had booked a block of rooms for the meeting we were having, had negotiated a suite for me at the same rate.

The suite was pretty good. Small lounge area, with a flat screen TV, and then in corner a desk to work at. There is free wired and wireless access (though it was not working, and so more a theory than a reality!). Then there was a good sized bedroom with good sized bed, which is comfortable too. There is another flat screen TV.

There is a fairly good selection of TV channels in different languages, and as a very frequent traveler with only really English as my language, it was great to have BBC 1 and 2 and not just the news channels to watch!

The hotel is on a very busy road and so is not the quietest as rooms have traffic noise. But it is not too loud, and ear plugs blocks it all out.

The breakfast buffet is pretty good, though expensive if not part of your package (22 Euros). It is always packed as the hotel seems to have coach/ tour groups galore!

Overall this is a fairly good hotel with decent rooms and facilities.

I grew up in Zimbabwe, but I have been based in London since 1987. My travel life spans more than three decades and that includes more than 95 cruises. In 2005, I launched Tips for Travellers to make it easy and fun for people to discover, plan and enjoy incredible cruise vacations. And the rest, as they say, is history. I have the largest cruise vlogger channel currently on YouTube, with more than 2 million video views per month.
