Late in the game - Paris budget hotel help

I'm doing the legwork for an inexpensive (ideally, less than 100 euros) yet nicely located Paris hotel for daughter and boyfriend, May 7 - 11. First trip to Paris. So far, using the excellent tips from other Fodorites, everything I've checked has been booked, or prices have shot up. If anyone has any good ideas to share, bring them on. Thanks so much.

Try the Hotel Henri IV on the Ile de la Cite (go to google for it). Don't know what the current rates are, but have stayed there in the past. Was clean, cheap, and centrally located.

Not the best hotel (in terms of metro noise) but really great location is Hotel de Saint Germain. I've stayed there twice. They have rooms available during your timeframe for 95 euros for double rooms. See tripadvisor for my reviews (under screen name "y2000k).

Thanks all. I'm getting that desperate feeling, so I am really glad to hear some suggestions. Will keep you posted. Hotel de St. Germain is at 110 euros, but Sat night is at 130 euros -- a bit more than they were hoping to pay, but perhaps the best that can be arranged. We'll see!

Check out www.gtahotels.com and when shopping remember that the posted rates usually include breakfast.

I have not stayed here, but they have rooms available for 90 euros/night. I think reviews are okay.

We stayed in Grand Hotel Malher on Rue Malher - it's a 3* right in the centre of the Marais, and a nice 20 minute walk to the Louvre or to Notre Dame. If noise disturbs you ask for a room facing the courtyard - refuse trucks operate early in the morning and can be noisy - www.grandhotelmalher.com .

If that stretches your budget too much there's Le Sevigne, directly across the street from Grand Hotel Malher. The rooms are tiny, but it's perfectly safe and clean, and again the location is good - www.le-sevigne.com . My parents have stayed there and said that it's fine, and again, the location is good.

This is what I posted elsewhere:

Michelin is generally reliable. Go to the viaMichelin web site, choose tourism, choose hotel, choose the country and for the postal code type in 75005 and it should bring you to this listing: http://tinyurl.com/2hgbfq for 5th arrondissement. For hotels in the sixth, type the postal code 75006. You can have the hotels listed by price.

I think Hotel College du France fits your needs. It's in the Latin Quarter area and I found it very acceptable.

I've had very good luck using venere.com. I also recommend the Welcome Hotel.

Thanks everyone. I'm hunched over the computer checking out your suggestions. Le Sevigne is already booked. Travelnut -- the Hotel de Lavre is in the 15th. Of your three hotels, which is the best location for first time visitors?

Again, merci beaucoup.

It's a bit above your price range, but the Hotel Muguet is nicely located in the 7th and the rate is 130 euros. We've stayed there twice and thought it was very nice (not just nice for the price, if you know what I mean).

The Hotel des Mines and the Andre Latin are close together, and near Jardin de Luxembourg, but the southern end of it, about where rue Auguste Comte cross blvd St Michel...

Try these two, both on rue Cujas, by the Pantheon:

First night is only 59 Euros, with the remaining nights being 85 Euros.

Good luck!

Hotel Familia, 11, Rue Des Ecoles, 75005, www.familiahotel.com.

Double with shower available your dates 104 euros, including breakfast. With balcony 114 euros. We stayed there last year and booked again for next September. Nice 2-star hotel with air conditioning located in Latin Quarter, walking distance to Notre Dame, convenient to metro and bus systems.
