Dear Dan: For what it's worth, I have stayed at the Hotel St.Thomas d'Aquin and found it very agreeable. My sister and I had a double room (with twin beds) on about the fourth floor, I think. It was pleasant and quiet--though that may have partly resulted from the fact that there was a transit strike in Paris the week-end we were there. I promptly came down with what Parisians call "la grippe" and spent most of my time in our room (thus making me an expert on the St. Thomas d'Aquin); but we did find plenty of good and reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance and my sister said the transportation (when it ran) was good. Hope you have a good time. Joan

We stayed at Le Muguet in April and would recommend it highly. The rate was half what we paid recently at another hotel and the room was as nice. There was a neighborhood restaurant, "Bistro 7th", around the corner that was also a very good value. <BR>

My husband & I stayed at the Hotel Muguet. It is a very quiet street (Rue Chevert) . The location was prime. We walked to the Rodin Museum, the Eiffel Tower, the Musee D'Orsay, Napoleon's Thomb (Le Invalides). There is a parking garage by Les Invalides. There was a post office, great restaurants, convenient laundry facilities, etc.. <BR>

Hotel Muguet is a favorite of Sandra Gustafson (author of Cheap Sleeps in Paris and Cheap Eats in Paris, both of which I highly recommend - her reviews are very comprehensive and accurate). The neighborhood is fabulous. Quintessential Paris. Within walking distance to lots of sights (including the Eiffel Tower and the Seine - awesome for moonlight strolls). Hotel is close to a convenient metro stop (on a line that does not require a lot of transfers for getting all over). This is a safe and quiet neighborhood full of wonderful shops and conveniences and fabulous restaurants in every direction with good food at reasonable prices.

For what it's worth, I stayed at the St-Thomas <BR>d'Acquin and did not like it very well. The people <BR>were pleasant and professional and the breakfast <BR>room was nice, but the room was VERY ugly (modern <BR>motel-like furniture) and it had the TV on the wall <BR>like in a hospital, near the ceiling so you couldn't <BR>really watch it well (I've seen this in cheap hotels <BR>in France and it has now become my mark of crummy <BR>French hotels, as the nice ones don't do this). I'm <BR>sure it depends on your room, and that's one problem--in France, the quality of rooms can vary <BR>widely in the same hotel. It was very noisy, also, <BR>(window about 2 feet from neighboring apt windows) <BR>and not that close to a metro stop. The prices are <BR>fishy here, also, because I paid $95 for a SINGLE <BR>and that was 6 years ago. So, either the current <BR>ones quoted are way off, or I really got ripped off <BR>(as I said, my room wasn't that nice, either). <BR>
