Help with Paris Hotels please...

I know there are HEAPS of posts but I'm really struggling so here goes:

I've already booked Eurostar ticket online (collecting them at Waterloo) for my parents and I for this 1st July (returning next day).

Looking for a triple room for the 1st July 2004 night. I've been advised to stay within 1-8 arr due to my short stay in Paris. However, I am reading a lot about 14 arr. Is that still advisable? (Hotel De Blois in mind).

Champs du mare is fully booked. Any other recommendations?

And do the hotels in Paris go by per room and not per person as they do in England? I'm looking at less than 100 Euro per room.

Much thanks.

Hi celine,

The 14th is OK. You have to spend a few more minutes on the metro.

Prices at Paris hotels are per room.

100E for a triple is very low. I'm not familiar with your hotel, but it is cheap.

You can get a good map at

Give a try.

I know there are some very recent posts on triples in Paris (maybe you've asked this before?). If you type triple room in paris in the text search first 1 or 2 threads should provide tons on options specifically I think in the 100-120e range.

I think if you are a wise traveler you'll realize that the operative issue in staying in the 14th vs. 1-8 would be the time you might spend getting somewhere and there is a BIG assumption here as to where you will be going in the first place.

Unfortunately, there are some posters here who are so caught up with being "in the right numbered arrond." in Paris that all else, including reason, seems to pale in comparison.

Have a great trip regardless of which "number" you end up in.

That part of the 14th is fine if you've found a good deal you want. It's a nice residential area with lots of good shopping and cafes/restaurants. In fact, rue Alesia itself it a great discount shopping street. There are some good restaurants on rue des Plantes that will be cheaper than in the central area. Check out Monsieur Lapin (traditional, rabbit a specialty as you can imagine, Aux Rendezvous des Camionneurs (cheap, local) or Severo Bar (a wine bar with some food), and Au Moulin Vert (romantic, in a garden, special but not expensive).

I don't know anything about that hotel, and you can't expect a lot from a 1*, but the area is fine. I stay in the 14th near bd Montparnasse, which I like, but I think your area is a good one in the 14th, also. It is right on the number 4 metro line, for one thing, which goes right to St Germain and Notre Dame.
