ps. Clement certainly looks inviting, and that is a great price. You will be very close to Gerard Mulot, too, which is a plus!"

True. Gerard Mulot is less than a 5-minute walk down rue de Seine.

Happy Travels!

flygirl I have stayed in St Germain many times and I have never paid 300 dollars a night, please be careful what you say, you could not possibly have facts to back that up , people like you love to push apartments with that argument but it is false. I can also not imagine going to the hassle of renting an aparment for two nights, plus try finding A/C in a inexpensive apartment, much harder then finding it in a hotel.

I can list three hotels that are under 300 dollars a night for a double and have a/c, I have stayed in all of them. Booking ahead does help, which I always do.

Hotel Le Regent on Rue Dauphine.

Hotel Eugenie, steps from the Seine.

Hotel Saint Peirre, budget pick but nice and clean.. steps to eerything

Agree, Justine, there are many good hotel options well under $300 a night.

The junior suite I reference is two bedrooms and at today's rate is around $235.

I must have expensive tastes then! My hotel stays have never been under 200 euros in Paris.

And my first ever apartment stay was in December (two months ago) so I hardly am an apartment pusher.

Flygirl, I have never stayed in a hotel in Paris over 200 euros, you just have more money to spend then I do. Trust me, if you do not have that sort of money to spend it is easy to find places for alot less then 300 dollars a night! And I do not stay in dumps, mostly 3 stars , and few 2 stars, but all are clean , nice, a/c and mini fridges( I love having a mini fridge and since I go in summer, I must have a/c) .

Sorry about "apartment pusher" comment, I actually stayed in a nice one myself last summer, but I find it annoying when people come on asking about a hotel for 2-3 nights and people suggest an apartment, I would not bother to do all the research nessesary to find a nice apartment for 2 nights, pay up front, and then say its cheaper, since many times it is not cheaper at all( especially since some agencies charge an extra fee for short stays) .

Hi All,
I haven't checked this thread in a bit and now I feel responsible for squabbles here. First, I must say that I think I was out of line in my price range for a Paris triple in a good location. We are usually looking for a room for two and that was the price range in my head when I posted. Having said that, we did make a reservation. The Hotel Clement and Hotel Le Regent were our first choices and location was a priority. We chose a triple at the Hotel Le Regent based on the location and room even though it was smaller than getting two rooms at the Clement. The Clement just looked a little more "vanilla" in the photos we saw. We paid 306 euros per night in July for their "Triple Luxury Superior" room with a double bed, an extra bed, and breakfast for three. Hope it was a good choice.

Thanks everyone for your opinions.

You will love the area, and the bathrooms are nice, and the a/c works and there is a mini fridge in the rooms,, hope its not too tight, ( I have never stayed in the triple) but as I said, the location is so perfect you will be out all the time.

Le Regent looks great. I noticed it when we stayed at the Hotel Dauphine, which btw I don't recommend as they've recently hiked their prices!

Please get back to us with your opinion. And don't worry about the squabbles, this one was mild.

Ha, thats true about the squabbles. I've seen much worse.

Thanks all. I'll be sure to let you know how it was. Now on to the next leg of the trip, Greece.
