First time in Paris


I'm going to Paris in May, and I'm going to book a hotel. I'm not sure what area to stay in, but I am thinking about the Latin Quarter. I have never been to Paris before, so I'm not sure what would be the best area to stay. If there are somebody out there who could recomend a hotel I would apreciate it.

Hi Kaja
I like the Latin Quarter, somewhere with a short walk to Notre Dame. What price range are you hoping for and what are you planning to do while visiting Paris? Maybe I can give you better advice.

Hi Lily,
I'm thinking somwhere between 500 - 1000 franc. Are planning to go to Louvre, Notre Dame and probably a lot more. Will also try to do some shopping, and of course eat a lot of good french food. Maybe you have some great restaurants you could recomend too.

We were in Paris in November and stayed at the Hotel De Fleruie in the Latin Quarter. It is a smallish hotel with really good staff and very clean rooms. It is well situated just off St. Germaine. We would reccomend to anyone.

Try this hotel. Ask for the room facing the street with the small balcony. My wife and I were there in late August of last year. It's two star..but very nice, clean and reasonable.

You can see pictures at

It's a great location..good shops & restaurants..metro and bus.

A friend of ours lived in Paris for 5 years working for American Airlines. She is now single and returns to Paris once or twice a year for work and vacation. This is the hotel she always stays at, and the area of Paris she feels is safe and close to everything.

It's in the sixth arrondisement near Luxembourg Palace (5 or 6 blocks), and only a short distance to the river Seine.
Last year was our second time in Paris. The first time was 4 years ago. We had a great time then. Don't miss the Musee D'Orsay (sp) and take a night cruise on the river Seine. It's wonderful. . We celebrated our anniversary and Judy's birthday with dinner cruise and dancing to live music. It was an experience we'll never forget. A violinist playing Ave Maria as the boat slowed beside Notre Dame, the band playing New York, New York as we spun the boat in front of the Statue of Liberty in sight of the Eiffel was magnificent.

Savor each moment, take lots of pictures, keep a journal or notes so you can write one after you get back that will let you relive something very special.

God Bless You and Have a wonderful trip.

Judy and Reg
