Favorite district to stay in Paris for first-timer?

Jump to last reply

Well, we're holding tickets for October in Paris, and we're thinking about the first 2 nights taking the train to Bayeaux and then 5 nights in Paris.

In Rome this year, we loved staying at the Residenza Canali, because we could walk out the door and be on an antique, cobblestone street filled with stores and were near the sites.

So what area would be best for first-timers to Paris? We at first considered near the Eiffel Tower because friends have suggested that, but now I'm not sure. We've found a few apartments that look good, too, but I'd like to narrow down the district before we decide on specific hotel or apartment.

We'd love to be able to walk most places. We plan on seeing the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Rue Cler Market, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe, Les Invalides, and love little out-of-the-way places to explore.

What are your pros and cons of each area for a Paris first-timer? And do you have a favorite place to stay? We'd love to pay under $150-$175 per night.

Thanks!
