I never used the guidebook for hotels recommendations, but I can give high praise to the following sections of the book:
- best full day tours
- best special interest tours
- best neighborhood walks
- best of outdoors
- best day trips and excursions
The metro map and the attractions map inside the book cover also come in very handy. The separate fold out map is good and easy to read, with bold writings, so you do not have to squint your eyes when reading it on the street.
The shopping tips and dinning ones are also good. Yes, they are focused more on high end places, but you can also find advice on budget friendly places.
In my opinion you should get the book for the five sections I mentioned above anyway, not for the shopping and lodging ones.
The day trips and excursions section has enough information to get you there and help you explore Versailles, Disneyland and Chartres. You will find this section extremely valuable once you exit Paris and you need the help of a guidebook to help you know where you are going and what you should not miss in any place. I found myself holding the book in my hands while exploring Versailles and the cathedral at Chartres. I did not go to Disneyland, but I can tell by just looking at this section that the book will not disappoint travelers using it for Disneyland trips.
As I said before, you really can't go wrong with this book. I highly recommend getting it. You will carry it in your pocket or purse your whole time in Paris. You will fall in love with it for sure once you start using it.
