You might try this hotel. The May rates haven't been posted yet.

Another one. If you increase your budget a bit you'll get a better room.

For Paris, look at Hotel du College de France (5th arrondissement) and maybe look at Paris Hotel (near Place de la République).

Our favorite in Amsterdam...rates have risen I've been told, but give it a shot. Mid-April will probably not be as high as summer rates. On-quiet- Regulier canal location and charm are worth it, IMO.

Paris:
Hotel Duo on the Marais "border", ditto all above. Very mod in appearance, close to everything (Louvre, City Hall plaza, shopping and popular streets).

If you've never stayed on Ile St. Louis, it's a nice experience... try The Hotel St. Louis or its sister hotel Lutece a few doors down. Both should be close to your budget. We were able to find "reasonable" rates at both for several trips to Paris. We switched to The Duo when I had business in the Marais a few years ago.

I've stayed at this hotel twice and really like it a lot, it has double "confort" for less than 150 euro in April http://www.hotelraspailmontparnasse.com/

Super location and nice hotel, only caveat is the beds are a bit hard for my taste. Too bad, I like everything else about it and otherwise it is a bit nicer than other hotels in that price range.

We always stay at Hotel Jeanne d'Arc in the Marais. Close to everything, within your budget, quaint, elevator and great staff.

Christina----you took me back to our 1st 2 stays in Paris (2001 & 2002) at The Raspail. We did take the best room they had and we have an excellent photo of Le Rotunde taken out of room window in the rain. It hangs in our home and reminds us of why we fell in love with Paris and have returned so many times.

Now we chose to stay on Ile St. Louis or closer to The Seine but we will always have fond memories of that fun location and our dinners at Le Dome & Le Parc au Cerf closeby.

Paris - Hotel Minerve, St Pierre, St Jacques, Marignan, St Andre des Arts.

I have stayed at all of them, several of them more than once. St Jacques is the 'nicest' but may be over 150€ depending on the dates.

Amsterdam - Hotel Brouwer - but it is frequently booked. If you can get a room it's great.

Go to TripAdvisor and the Netherlands forums. Look for 2 threads called "Bidding on a 5 star..." and "Bidding on a 4 star..." Priceline's NYOP works especially well for Amsterdam.
Unless there is a big convention or holiday you'll learn how to get a 4 or 5 star right in the center for $100 US or maybe even less.

TPAYT, I always request a room overlooking bd Raspail, as far from the corner as possible on the top floor, to help with noise. I do really like the views out the window of La Rontonde at night when the lights are on. They have some rooms more on the corner which I imagine are noisier than where I stay. I was just there a few months ago for the second time. Their superior rooms are really huge as I've had one before, but this time just the double confort as I was trying to save money a bit and wasn't there as long.

I'm surprised someone said Amsterdam's rates would be higher in summer than April. I know in Paris and many other cities, summer is the slow period as there is much less business travel, at least from mid-July through August, and rates are often cheaper. And the Netherlands has that big flower thing going in Spring. The FLower Parade is end of April, for example.

IBIS hotels will fit the bill likely - similar to our Holiday Inns - www.accorhotels.com - look for specials on weekends when their normal business clientele is not there and also in July and August for similar reasons.

an Amsterdam IBIS is right at the main train station.
