Paris - Looking for a "pension"

Jump to last reply

I am looking for the name and/or address of a particular Paris "pension" (boarding house)that I read about in a guide book several years ago. It was owned/run by an elderly French lady. Even though she spoke no English, Brits clammored for reservations there. This write up said this house had been in her family for years, always operated as a boarding house. Unfortunately, I did not buy this guide book at the time and now cannot remember the title or the author's name. To the best of my memory, it was a budget guide written by a British fellow or possibly by a British man and woman team. Pretty sure I saw it at Border's bookstore in New Orleans.

Does anybody know about this place or have any experience staying in the few pensions that I find listed with the Paris Bureau de Tourisme? Thanks for any information you might have to share.
