I thought i would pause here to add a couple of informational things about life at the Cite. First off, if you're going to be staying here it's a good idea to go out to your local pharmacie and pick up a box of these. Earplugs (5EU) are a necessity if you're not a sound sleeper, as the street noise and sometimes the building noise can leave you tossing and turning at 4 am. Gehoorbeschrming.
I should also mention that there's an auditorium here for the musically inclined and a printing shop for those who need to make an impression.
We also have our own subway stop, well we're a subtitle at least, so if you get lost its helpfully listed on the subway signage.
And best off all, right next door to the Cite is one of the best coffee shops in Paris La Cafeotheque (http://www.lacafeotheque.com/en/) in case you haven't been sleeping very well and need that extra jolt before making an impression.
