Hotels with Air conditioning

I'm traveling with my mother in June and she said that air conditioning is an essential for her in a hotel. The problem is that we are trying to stay on a budget...clean hotels costing $150/night or less in a good area. I keep finding great little finds like Hôtel Jeanne d'Arc, but there is no A/C. Does any one have any suggestions?

I'm assuming you're going to paris? if so, claude bernard has A/C and should be in your price range.

Do you mean in Paris?
If so, try the Hotel de la Bourdonnais. It's nice, in the quiet 7th, on a pretty Boulevard, with views of the Eiffel Tower from some rooms, near Rue Cler. It has A/C and a lift. Our family suite was $225 in June 2005, through Expedia.

(Maybe re-post your question with the city name in the title.)

Some of the chain-hotels have AC; for istance Ibis Paris Bastille (more Ibis in Paris have AV): www.accorhotels.com
Most Ibis have a price-range of around € 80-100 a night. Mostly not your picture-perfect-hotel, but pretty decent to sleep at!

Hotel Royal Parc, although not exactly in the centre , but near Bois de Boulogne has got good reviews on a Dutch hotel site and a price starting from € 90 per night at this same site (http://www.weekendesk.com/search_res...nl&country=nl; in Dutch):

I just saw that normal rates for the Royal Parc are a little higher...€195...

But maybe they have got some special discount!

Hotel Monge - I paid about 100 Euro for a twin room in Sept 06.

Hotel Muguet was a little higher but still might be under $150.

I recently booked Hotel Bonoparte per Ira's recommendation. The price was 150€ for a twin and 170€ for a triple. That price is for mid Sept.

$150 a night for a hotel with AC during the peak rate season is difficult, at the current exchange rate. That's only about 115 euro or less. The reason you find all these great cheap hotels is because they don't have AC, and even the 2* hotels with AC in the central area are a lot more than that now (eg, the Bonaparate).

It's possible, but they may be booked by now -- I think the Monge does fit in that price category still. Even the 2* Hotel Langlois, which now has AC, runs around 130 euro for a twin room, and it's not in the most expensive central area, but still nice and convenient

The Muguet starts at 130 euro for a double which is more like $170.

Here's another 2* hotel with AC in St Germain, and it's now around 130-140 euro for a twin. http://www.hotel-clement.com/

I don't think the Claude Bernard fits into that price range at all in peak rate season, although they do during August, for example. Twins are minimum 128 euro (to 178 euro) normally
http://www.paris-hotel-claude-bernard.com

Good luck, but I think your budget and wants just may not be realistic for one of the most expensive cities in the world in peak season, and the few that fit that are probably booked by now, but you never know. The Ibis chain is a good idea, if you mainly want cheap prices and AC. They have some in convenient areas of Paris, also (although many are not), and the Ibis Paris Bastille should work for you and be in that price range. Some of their hotels do not have AC, though, so you need to check.

The Mercure Monty, where we stayed in February, says it has air-conditioning and I think there are individual temperature controls in the room. Double-check with the hotel, though. Many, but not all Mercure and Novotel hotels, have air conditioning, so just do a general check on this site:

http://www.accorhotels.com

What I did in 2004 for a July stay was to bid on Priceline for a 4* hotel in the St. Germain - Latin Quarter - Montparnasse zone. By sticking to that zone, I felt I was basically assured of getting a nice 4* hotel with good air conditioning. I got the Le Meridien Montparnasse which has excellent air conditioning and ice machines on each floor, so it's perfect in that respect. Check www.betterbidding.com if you are interested. You might also try Hotwire and you might be able to get the Hilton Paris for a good rate, which has air conditioning.
