My husband's possibly unfair assertion is that hotels with a resident cat(s) probably have a mouse problem.

Gee, willtravel, I hope your husband's theory is not true!

Interesting assertion! Well, like I said, I always ask about any cats beforehand!

Excuse me, but as a multi-cat owner, having cats around means you do NOT have a mouse problem

Hi. Paris is one of my favorite places. They will have a great time. I've stayed two places there that are both very nice. The Hotel St. Germain des Pres (www.hotel-paris-saint-germain.com) is a bit more upscale with lovely, romantically decorated rooms in a great location right next to the St. Germain. Prices run about 150 - 180 euros according to their web site. I also love the Hotel du College de France (www.hotel-collegedefrance.com) which is two star but very nice and wonderfully located about a block and a half from Notre Dame in the Latin Quarter. It is in a quiet location, which can be hard to find in the bustling Latin Quarter and the people who run it are very nice. Both places have elevators. Prices run 92 - 110 euros according to the Hotel du College de France web site and you can probably find rave reviews on both of these places if you visit trip advisor. Good luck and best wishes to the newly weds!

Hi,

Here are a few suggestions that I think might fit your plan. I will leave others here to give up to date rating.

Hotel De Notre Dame: Left Bank, great location, off of main street, easy walk to Seine, Notre Dame. 150E

Hotel le Notre Dame: Left Bank, on main street besdie Seine,alcove room with views over Notre Dame. 150/199E

I also like the hotels on Ile St Louis. Location wise, I really like this area. You are away from the high traffic streets, in a neat neighbourhood with cheese/wine/food shops,restaurants,old buildings, walks along Seine, concerts in the old church,...but yet only a 5 minute walk to Notre Dame. Names to look at (note that my experience is that these will not be large rooms):
Hotel de Lutece 158E
Hotel St Louis 140E
Hotel des Deux Iles 158E

Hope this helps
Mike

Wow, this post may have saved my honeymoon, because that's exactly what I've been researching for 2 days allready, a honey moon in paris and a nice-romantic hotel to spend it in.
Thank you everyone for great recommendation. My honey moon will be early days of August 04. I think I will reserve in the Saint-
Germain-des-Prés Hotel, since they are offering 4 night for the price of 3 and discout for 150 Euro, I guess this is a good deal, I will be staying there 4 nights after I get married in Lebanon, so all in all will 450 euro, it is a good deal right?

I hope Paris will be nice around that time, cause I've been told that it is not the greatest season to visit.

Thank again

Another vote for the Hotel de Deux Iles. The Iles St. Louis is very romantic, not very touristic...it is quiet, yet close to everything. It is surrounded by the Seine, near the Notre Dame. The rooms we had (my husband and I took my mother) were charming and well decorated. They were small, but this is typical in Paris at hotels of "charm".

One more thought -- October is the month in Paris that the clothing/designer collections occur. It is a very very busy time. I would book something now, recognizing that you can change it based on what you see in July.

Just fyi-I believe I had read that there is no shower screen or curtain at the Hotel St. Germain des Pres if that is something you care for.

I've just read a very good review of a 2* hotel in the 5th that has an elevator and air conditioning--very rare for that category. The hotel has been family-operated for many years and sounds very pleasant. The name is the Hotel DeVillas; the website is

www.hoteldevillas.com.

Room rates range from 75 to 125 Euros, and the buffet breakfast is just 8 Euros. The hotel offers 2 non-smoking floors.

Michel, by any chance, have you stayed at the Hotel St. Louis and can give personal comments? I read mixed reviews on tripadvisor.com. Mostly the complaints were due to ill-maintained rooms and rooms as small as coffins.

FYI - The rooms I rented at the Hotel St. Germain des Pres had showers rather than bathtubs, but both had shower stalls with doors, along with lovely marble floors. The bathrooms were fairly small, but nicely appointed.

... blush, wouldn't you know I'd have lived at St. Thomas d"Aquin twice, in the 80s, later the 90s. Do I earn points time down the street at the Leonard sipping champagne?
