To jump into an inexpensive Parisian fantasy, just climb the stairway to your room in this former 17th-century royal residence. Well maintained, the endearingly odd-shape guest rooms have tiny nooks, weathered antiques, and exposed beams. It may be modest, but the lodging is extremely atmospheric. A typical French breakfast is served in the lobby (or in your room).

I have happily stayed at this hotel for years, but my last two trips have seen standards slipping: mold in the showers, torn carpeting, non-working TVs, some stained bedspreads, and a surly "night porter" at reception from late afternoon till morning who is best avoided. Sadly, I will be looking for a new home when in Paris.

When I come to Paris without my husband, I prefer a simple, but not spartan ,clean hotel in a good and safe location, This fills the bill and has a little charm too.It is on a tiny quiet street but walk a half block and you are in the midst of lively (at all hours) Blvd St. Germain .Rooms are tiny but at these prices(with a nice breakfast included) who cares! One caveat-no lift
