Please help - I am totally frustrated as to where to stay in Paris

Jump to last reply

I am now totally frustrated as to where to stay in Paris.

I thought that Isle St. Louis was the answer for me and I was going to rent an apartment thru "Guest Apartment Services" but now I just read from someone on Trip Advisor that the boats cruising along the Seine at night are very loud and keep you awake and there is a lot of traffic noise from across the river. I was going to stay on either Quai de Bourbon or Quai d'Orleans.

My first choice had been to stay in the "7th" Eiffel Tower view renting thru "Paris Perfect" but then Zeppole had the following not so positive remarks about the area:

"The absence of public parks well-used and beloved by Parisians is a big reason I don't like staying in the 7th, plus the overload of government buildings, which tends to dictate the hours and density of commercial establishments and eateries (for instance, shops often are closed on Saturdays, and restaurants cater to a business-lunch meeting crowd with the few tourist exceptions). The Eiffel Tower and Rick Steves pushing rue Cler guarantees a tourist swarm. To top if off, d'Orsay is not my favorite Paris museum for repeat visits -- so i stay elsewhere!"

Nothing is perfect but I am spending a lot of money on this trip for my anniversary so at this point I am about to give up - please help me!
