Advantages: Plenty to keep kids happy Disadvantages: some of the hotels behind were a bit of an eye-sore

We visited this hotel for one week last May 2005, we choose this Hotel and resort because of price(£650 for 2 adults and one child) and within 2 hours of the U.K.
It is only about half an hour away from the airport and the airport is very small so getting through it is usually pretty...

The Hotel's Location
Europe Hotel is in an ideal location on a busy street. It's situated only a 10-15 minute walk away from the Effiel Tower, which was amusing on our first day as we stood with a map wondering where the busy street we were standing in...
Advantages: Lovely taste, not harsh, complements mixers Disadvantages: More expensive than most other vodkas

Its taste is a lot harsher than its clear spirit cousin, gin...
