Hotel in Paris...which Arrondissements should we stay?

Thinking about going to Paris with my wife for about 5-7 days we dont know where to stay. We are looking for a place that wont break the bank but at the same time "clean" and be able to have 1 hot showers per day.
We are planning to go in September 2014.

P.S leaving to Munich right after for Oktoberfest...

Jump to the bottom of the thread and then scroll up to Dec 31,2010. In that section, I have categorized the recommended hotels, by district, and have provided websites.



If you're looking for an apartment, you can try:

www.homeaway.com

www.vrbo.com


www.airbnb.com

Happy Travels!

I forgot to add that where you select to stay, as in area, depends on what you want.

Happy Travels!

That can be found absolutely anywhere in Paris. Have you done your research on the different arrondissements?

I forgot to add a couple of things. we want to be near an area where its an up beat atmosphere and have easy access to public transit.

I would like to just get your take on where you have stayed and your experience.

Public transport it ubiquitous in Paris. "Upbeat" is subjective - what is your definition?

My experience spans 40+ years of staying in Paris, usually several times a year, 110+ visits or so in all,so I've stayed just about everywhere, and loved it all. My personal favorite at the moment is the 20ème, but have never found an area I didn't like. For a first-time visitor, though, it's generally advisable to stay in the 2 - 6th, near the river, as that will put you within walking distance of many of the sights you're likely to want to visit.

Maybe look near Bastille or Oberkampf for a more lively area.

I think the 5th or 6th are the most popular for being the most central to the most places.
