early to bed, early to rise -- which Paris arrondissement?

Jump to last reply

My DH and I have settled on dates for our now-for-sure Paris trip next year: October 16-22, 2016. I haven't been since I was a college student in 1986, and this will be the first time for my DH. We are now in our late 40s.

I've discussed with him the issues with short-term apartment-rentals that I've read here (please no re-hashing of the issue) and instead we've been thinking about a Citadines apart'hotel, or even a regular hotel. For a trip of 6 nights, it almost isn't worth it to get an apartment, if we don't want to spend too much time there... We just want a place to keep some coffee etc., and bring in dinner if we don't want to go out, and not sit on the bed to eat it. I'm also starting to feel that a concierge desk might be helpful though we are very comfortable making our own itineraries/schedules etc.

I've been trying to research the personality differences among all the arrondissements, but it is hard to really get a bearing on it. If only I could narrow down the choices to just a couple, I'd be ready to do my hotel research. A little about us: We are not misanthropes, but we hate touristy crowds. (We live very near NYC and I work in midtown Manhattan so I know very well what big touristy cities are like, and to battle tourists every day.) We also are not nightlife-goers; we prefer to be up and out early. So we'd like an area that doesn't have a lot of late bars or traffic outside. We love little shops, and patisseries, and not-loud-college-student bars. Bookstores! Cheese shops! Markets! Roaming around supermarkets in other countries! We also love parks. We are experienced travelers and have no problem not being in the middle of it all. In fact, we'd prefer not being in the middle of it all. Public transportation is our friend.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction with a couple of arrondissements that might suit us? At this point, without doing any hotel research, I would imagine our budget to be $200 a night or less. And for $200 it would have to hit all our wish-list.

thanks very much!
