I never suggested staying in a remote area in Paris -- just a few metro stations out of the center. "Inexpensive" was in the subject title and "affordable price" in all caps, even if we are still wondering what the exact budget is.

Hotels in the Latin Quarter are expensive. If you don't want to spend too much money, you can have a look at the Lux Hotel, very good value for money.
The Family Residence, not so comfortable, located in Paris 15, close to the Eiffel Tower, offers a good way to visit paris at a low cost.

When I was referring to "remote" as in "outlying", I was referring to the many times that it has been suggested, on this forum, to stay for example in the 18th and other "remote" or "outlying" areas. I would personally not recommend such areas to a newbie "unless" the newbie has stated that he/she doesn't mind being metro dependent to get to the sites that he/she will probably want to go to as newbie.

Many posters have time and time again recommended the areas that are considered more, "central" . Even the 60 year old, Parisian born- and- raised airport van driver that picked me up at my rented apartment on Easter Sunday made the comment to my friend and me , "Oh, Madame, this is one of the best areas in Paris as it's so central!". He then went on to say that he lives in Montmatre. He was a very happy and talkative guy and we had very nice conversations, all the way to the airport, about Paris and how it has changed over the decades. Happy Travels!
