9th arrondisement

Jump to last reply

Hi! (I hope this is an appropriate place to post something like this, I am new to these forums.) I am traveling to Paris with a friend in October and we have reservations at a small hotel on the Rue Notre-Dame de Lorette in the 9th near the Saint-Georges metro stop. Neither of us has ever been to Paris before but judging by the TripAdvisor reviews, it seemed like a good option in our price range. Obviously, as first time visitors, we would have preferred something a little more centrally located but aren't willing to spend $400 a night so this seemed very doable. We enjoy walking and are used to using the metro everyday here in the U.S. so we don't need to be staying right underneath the Eiffel Tower or anything. Anyway, some friends "warned" us that it's not a good place to stay (the area, not the specific hotel.) I don't know how much stock to put into this opinion because they are big spenders who stay at 5 star hotels as a rule. However never having been to the city before, I just wanted some extra reassurance that this is a SAFE area. We could care less about having fluffy bathrobes or a view of the Seine so I just wanted to see if someone could vouch for the area.

Thank you in advance!
