Narrowing Down Paris Hotel Choices -- Thoughts?

Jump to last reply

Thank you all so much for your help on my previous post. Guenmai’s hotel lists were a huge help. Since posting I’ve been reading my guidebooks.

I’d originally thought I might go with a site such as Priceline or Hotwire but have ruled that out because I decided that I want a “traditional” hotel with charm and character—and don’t want to take the chance of getting a modern, business-oriented hotel.

Thanks to your suggestions I’ve narrowed down my location choices to the 4th, 5th, or 6th – and have narrowed down my hotel choices, as well, but I’m certainly open to other suggestions in the price range of the hotels listed below.

As suggested, I contacted each of these hotels directly -- but not one of them offered any better price or any additional perks than were shown on their websites.

One of the guidebooks stated that the 4th might have the most character. (I love old buildings and would prefer not staying in what feels like a business district.)

We’ll stay 6 nights (Feb. 25 – March 3) and plan to visit the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay, Notre Dame, the Catacombs, and tour the sewers. A day trip to Versailles is also likely -- although I visited a hundred years ago ;-) when everything else was on strike.

FYI, I’m sure we’ll take some trains, but we love exploring cities on foot. Just returned from NYC where (at 38 degrees) we walked from our hotel at 32nd to a museum at 79th.

So … with all of this in mind, which do you think might be best for us?

In the 4th:

HOTEL CARON DE BEAUMARCHAIS
www.carondebeaumarchais.com
12, rue Vieille-du-Temple 75004 Paris
191 E & 13 E for brkfst

This would be my top choice—but it’s the most expensive—and I don’t know if it’s worth the additional cost. When I first found it on the Tripadvisor site a pop-up offered a promotion of free breakfast & afternoon tea. But when I contacted the hotel they said no promotions were available because it’s “Fashion Week.”

Hotel St. Paul LeMarais
www.hotel-paris-marais.com
8 rue de Sévigné 
75 004
149 € each night for the 4 first nights and 159 € each night for the 2 last nights.
OR -- 160 € includes brkfst

HOTEL DE NICE
www.hoteldenice.com/en/
42 BIS RUE DE RIVOLI, 75004 PARIS
140 € / night
Continental Breakfast 8 € extra per person

In the 5th:
Hotel St Jacques
www.paris-hotel-stjacques.com/
161 € – standard dbl w/brkfst
137 € – 6th fl; elevator to 5th then walk up 1

In the 6th:
HOTEL BEST WESTERN LEFT BANK
www.hotelleftbank.com/
9, rue de l'Ancienne Comédie, 75 006 - PARIS
150 Euro prepaid/nonrefundable & 12 E pp brkfst

Hotel Le Regent
‪61 rue Dauphine, 75006 Paris, France ‬(Luxembourg)

Merci!!!
