Rue Saint-Dominique is a perfectly respectable place, a street with loads of good restaurants and shops. Yes, the 7th is a bit dead a night, but certainly not dangerous. I'm out and about all over the 7th late at night often and have never encountered anything remotely dangerous.

We've stayed in that area a few times. It does get deserted rather early compared to other areas but it is not dangerous. More like residential and quiet at tnight. I am a very light sleeper so I like the 7th because I alwways get a good night's sleep there. Walk over and hop on the city bus #69 over by the ET.

I stayed in a hotel just south of Gare de l'Est, on the main boulevard heading south and the nearby Metro exit at night resembled what i would think Haarlem or the Bronx in the crowd of tough-looking young Afro-French young folk handing all over the rails looking down on the steps where folks exited the Metro. These young bucks had what many tourists would consider a threatening look, etc. But having been in Paris for years i did not think it dangerous - just a gathering spot at night but still i did not feel like lingering there. Sleasy is an objective term and need not mean dangerous necessarily IME
