For Paris-knowledgable - best neighborhood to stay a week-plus

Jump to last reply

Have been to Paris 4 times already, but always for only a few days and with specific agenda. Am invited to go with a friend who has business for a week near the Porte de Versailles stop on the 12 Issy Metro line.

We would like to find a fairly quiet, friendly neighborhood that is somewhat residential but with enough cafes and shops so that I can explore, get lunch, croissants, supper, or whatever as well as walk or take Metro to various gardens, museums, monuments.

I'm comfortable with navigating connections on the Metro, although if alone (esp. after dark) I might be concerned about safety. My friend would prefer not to have to make more than one change on the Metro, if that.

I'm guessing 7th, 6th, or 5th. arrondisement but not adamant about that. We have not decided whether a hotel or bnb/apt. would be better for us -- open to all. (For me, if I must have dinners and evenings solo, sometimes a hotel is an easier place to stay, but ok to walk out and explore if in relatively safe area.)

Would appreciate anyone's comments or experiences that entail a recommendation re: streets, neighborhoods, etc. and maybe even a place if you've got a strong recommendation. (I speak some French that's comfortable and better than tourist-level, but couldn't be called fluent.)

Merci.
