We stayed at the Hotel du Champ de Mars -- in the 7th, off of Rue Cler in 2003. A "boutique" type hotel, it's around $100/night, so very reasonable.

We had a very nice double, with a view of the Eiffel Tower, and a decent bathroom. European bathrooms are usually small, especially in boutique hotels that are often in older buildings for their charm.

This last year, since our other hotel was booked and we had more people with us, we stayed at the Grand Hotel Leveque, just around the corner from the Champ de Mars. We enjoyed it too, and enjoyed their continental breakfasts and the fact that it was right on Rue Cler, a pedestrian street that has a wickedly good chocolate shop nearby, wine shop, cafes, and other small stores.

You have to book pretty far in advance since they're both favorites with Rick Steves crowds, but the price can't be beat, and they're both well-appointed, reasonably priced hotels at around $100E or less, run by their owners and overall very friendly staff.

Happy travels,

Jules

Le Regent, on Rue Dauphine, in the 6th. Was roughly 120 euro per night (summer 2004).

We are staying at Hotel Jardin L'Odeon this coming June. We haven't stayed there previously but it got great reviews on trip advisor.

I'm staying at the Henri IV Rive Gauche- it was recommended by so many people and ranks 24 on tripadvisor. It's 167 euros a night which might be a little too much for you, but the rooms look big and very clean.

Hotel des Grandes Ecoles in the Latin Quarter (5th Arr.) at 75, rue du Cardinal Lemoine. One guidebook accurately describe it as an oasis in the heart of Paris.

The Mugeut near Rue Clar gets my vote.

The Muguet is a 2*, though.

I agree with the Hotel des Ste Peres but don't think rooms are available for $175 or less per night except perhaps in low season which is right now. There is a special on their website offering standard rooms for around $170. It is in the 6th, very near the 7th, about a block off the Blvd. St. Germaine. Boutique hotel, nice bathrooms and very helpful and welcoming staff.

The Saints Peres' standard double rooms are 155 euro without breakfast (12.50 euro/pp).

Hôtel Duquesne-Eiffel in the 7th (http://www.duquesneeiffel.com/duques...ris_france.htm)

Rates for a double room run from 140 to 185€ a night. Nice place - I've been a patron off and on for 20+ years.

You might give www.hotel-sainte-beuve.fr a try. It's in the 6th, nicely located, clean, comfortable, well-appointed and its staff are knowledgeable and accommodating of requests. We stayed there for 6 nights last September and would certainly return.
