  1. Try Hotel de L'Arcade near the Madeleine, Hotel d'Aubusson near Blvd. St.-Germain or Le Caron de Beaumarchais in the Marais.

    1. Try the Notre-Dame on Rue du Malte, near Republique. Inexpensive and in a nice neighborhood.

      1. Last time we were in Paris, my husband and I stayed at the Hotel Residence Henri IV - 50, rue des Bernardins - in the 5th arrondissement. It's a small hotel, just slightly off the beaten track, but still convenient to everything. We had a tiny apartment - livingroom with a futon, bedroom with two narrow twin beds, side by side, bathroom (with an actual shower curtain over the tub!), and a tiny kitchenette and the tv was on a stand with wheels, so it could be in either the bedroom or the living room. It was nice having the two rooms because we've found that living in one room can begin to induce claustrophobia after a few days. We thought the price was reasonable - 900 francs per night + the 6f city tax per person, per day. Breakfast was also available for 40f per person.

        It's not grand, certainly, but clean, convenient, and quite pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again. Especially because there are some good restaurants within easy walking distance that I'd very much like to revisit.

          Hotel rue de (du?) carmes, on the street of the same name, in the 6th. Not posh but the location can't be beat. Metro stop is Maubert Mutualite, I believe, or maybe St. Germaine, just at the corner. In any event the neighborhood is wonderful. All the food shops, side by side, so that you can buy your wine, bread, cheese, etc. etc. for a breakfast, lunch, or even dinner, depending on your cash flow. They included breakfast when I was there and it was typical - roll, juice, and coffee, but it got us going until luch.

        2. It has been a while since I was In Paris, but I have alwaya done really well with inexpensive hotels on the Right Bank in Le Marais (the old Jewish quarter)Try Hotel de Nice on Rue de Rivoli and the even cheaper and funkier Hotel Rivoli at 8 Rue Mauvais Garcon just off Rue de Rivoli. Transportation is nearby and there are some small inexpensive eateries in the neighborhood. If the weather holds you might enjoy taking the train to Versaille where you can rent a bike and the spend hours circiling the miles of beautiful outer gardens and walkways. Have a great trip

            Hotel de Nice - we stayed there for our honeymoon in November 1998. Funky and small, with a tiny balcony with a view of a small "place" below and Notre Dame in the distance.

          2. Just got back and stayed at Le Levoisier, in a non-descript part of the 8th, near St. Augustine metro and department stores. Had the "junior suite" on the lobby floor. Great value at $130 a night. Room was a cheery, pretty red and yellow. Walk-out patio with table as well as a jacuzzi tub.
