Best Paris Flat Location Assistance

Coming to Paris in late September. Have 4 days and 5 nights before we connect with our tour. Found two apartments One in the 7th near the Muse Rodin and one in the 3rd near the Picasso museum. Have never been to Paris. Which is better in terms of location. We will be visiting Eiffel Tower, taking a river cruise, going to Versailles on a day tour before joining our tour group. Thank you for your feedback on best location. The 3rd is less costly but seems like we will eat that up with transportation costs?

I think the one near the Picasso is more convenient and there is more right around it. The Rodin museum is more isolated in various ways.

What do you mean about eating up something with transportation costs? It costs the same thing to go anywhere within Paris by metro. Metro tickets don't cost that much, anyway, that they could make any big dent in housing differences. Even if you buy a one-day Mobilis (covers all transportation for one day), that's only about 7 euro per day. Some people dont' need that much and just buy carnets (groups of 10 single tickets) and then it would be more like 5 euro a day you are spending, perhaps. And you can walk to more attractions from the location near the Picasso museum than the one near the Rodin museum, nothing much near there to walk to but Invalides and the Eiffel Tower.

Going to Versailles will be the same cost from either point.
