2 nights in Paris for 3 18 - 21 year old

My daughter is extending her school trip to meet up with her cousin and friend in Jersey Island. They are then traveling to Paris for 2 nights before my daughter travels home flyng out of Paris.

Any suggestions on reasonable hotels in Paris that are within brief metro or walking of the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre? They are looking for inexpensive but as they have such a short time I would help them spend a bit more to have less travel time.

Suggestions of points to keep in mind on their trip? I believe they are taking the Jersey ferry to St. Malo then a train from St. Malo to Paris.

thanks

What is your definition of reasonable? If you are from Idaho, your definition might be different than someone from NYC. Two rooms? Triple? >100euro PP, less?

Thanks Michel for the question.

I think there will be two rooms. My daughter and her cousin will be in one room. I think they would prefer less than 100euro per person.

thank you

Chris66 is right, under 100€ in Paris (I'm talking about a decent area, you don't want to be in the 19 or in the 20th arrondissement) will be mission impossible.
But If I understand correctly it's 100€/person with 2 persons per room so 200€ for 1 room is fine.

Have you checked Hotel du Cadran http://www.hotelducadran.com/ , very near Eiffel Tower. From 105€.

Not mission impossible at all. We frequently stay at the Hôtel de France on the Boulevard de la Tour Maubourg in the 7ème, about a 10-minute walk to the Tour Eiffel. My 22-year-old daughter always stays there when she's in Paris either alone or with friends. It's a lovely little place, not fancy, but perfectly adequate and with nice staff. A double room is about 80 euros.

Thank you for the responses. Sorry for the delay. I am still looking at the various suggestions. We did consider flying them from Jersey to Paris, but one of the group hates flying. Has anyone had any experience with hotel Muguet-Paris? It has good reviews on trip advisor.

We stayed at the Muguet 2 years ago and loved it. Location was good as the metro was a block away. The hotel itself was very well kept. I would definitely stay there again

There are plenty of places under 100€. My best rec is Hotel Marignan. It's a one star but perfectly adequate and in a superb location about a block from the Cluny, five min walk to Notre Dame. Price includes breakfast and is way under 100€ www.hotel-marignan.com/html/p1_a.htm

A year or so ago my daughter was considering having her 18th Birthday Celebrations in Paris. As it turned out she didn't, but I did a lot of research on this.

The hotel I decided on (and booked the rooms!) is in a good location with quite a few nightspots bars and restaurants close by - I did not want these girls using the metro late at night, or having to use taxis. Good metro connections to the Louvre from Place de la Bastille, and the Eiffel Tower would involve a change of metro line but you'd still get there in 20-30 mins.

Anyway, it's the Hotel Daval, and I felt it a safe enough place for several 18yo girls to stay...

The metro is excellent, and for just 50€ a night your daughter can be with a 15 minute metro ride of the main sights. If you are paying for this trip, stick with the 100€ budget, but if it is her money, give her the option of saving some cash.

Good point kerouac. My daughter is paying for most of the trip, but the hotel is a gift from me. I will keep location a priority because of that.
