3 nights in Paris

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

I'm planning my first family (2 adults and a teenage daughter) trip to Europe. The plan is to fly into Gatwick, take the train to Gare du Nord (late arrival on 6/18, 7PM'ish), and checkout the morning of 6/21. After that, hop over to Rome for four nights, then jump on a week-long cruise out of Civitavecchia. I'm here to request suggestions for a Paris hotel.

Some amenities I would prefer but I expect to make sacrifices::
* non-smoking, clean rooms, staff speaks english
* near city center, or relatively quick access to the city center or suggested itinerary
* safe area
* not noisy
* air conditioning that works well
* 2-4 stars, inexpensive (I'd like to keep it under $150/135€ per night, including all taxes)
* 1 double+ bed and single/twin equivalent, or 3 single beds
* a decent breakfast is a plus, or near some place we can easily grab breakfast
* mattresses which are relatively softer
* free wifi is a plus
* scenic view is a plus

If you also have suggestions on how to make the most of our time over those two days (what's worthwhile and the best way to get around), I'm all eyes. Thank you for your help.

Jim
