The only passport tickets available for the 27th are the Grandes Eaux. I could add these tickets to my cart. If you can't go farther than this you'll need to let your credit card company know you're ordering tickets in France and also tell them you're traveling to France.

Hi Adrienne,
Yes i seem to have been looking at the wrong place. Would you recommend Hotel Obododo or Port Royal. Both seems to have good reviews.

The one in the 7th is probably the most convenient to first-time visitors but you've only booked for 3 nights. Are they full for the last nights? You don't want to change hotels for 2 nights. I also think the 7th is a bit quiet with less cafe life but lots of people like the 7th. I stayed in that area once and found it too quiet for me.

I'm not very familiar with the Obododo area except it's very close to Pere Lachaise.

I think the Port Royal would be more convenient to sights and it's near the rue Mouffetard market with shops and cafes. But it's above your price range if you want private bathroom (as noted in my original post on this hotel).

If budget is the deciding factor then choose the Obododo.

Are you ok with the "shared toilet facilities" in the hotel Obododo.? That would be a deal breaker for me.
The second hotel has private bathrooms.

Good catch, baladeuse. The OP left out that piece of information and I didn't read the fine print on the hotel site.

I've changed my opinion and would now go for the Port Royal since you're sharing facilities.

Below is the email I received from Port Royal. Requested them back to give us the room with the attached toilet within 300 euros. Fingers crossed. Problem will be in transferring the advance from Bangladesh as they do not accept credit card.

Yes, it's possible for the moment.

And Port Royal just came back to me and said no discount. So will have to pay 70 euros more.

E70 more for 5 days or per day? If your budget doesn't allow for this then you still have your first option and can go with that or stay at the Port Royal in a room without ensuite facilities.
