here are 3 good ways to search for hotels, there are other ideas

first I'd suggest that you post a new heading that indicates "Paris hotel for less than 100 euro" or some such.
"Reasonable hotel" will not always get you a lot of responses as it's a very common, vague idea.

Next, do a search right here on Paris hotel (use the little box above) and see what you get.

Also, Click on Hotels at the top of this screen and look at Fodor's suggestions. However, other websites like Frommers, rough guide, lonely planet, and rick steves tend to have more budget-minded suggestions

good luck

Hi jopeko-

If you type "Paris Budget Hotels" in the search box above, you'll find many many recent threads covering the same topic. Honestly, there are too many hotels in Paris that are < €100 to list it all here.

Also, have you thought about which arrondissement(s) you would like to stay in? If you know which one/ones, it will help in terms of giving you suggestions.

Lastly, will you be going in the beginning or end of Sept. Given the heat wave of last year, you might want to consider a hotel with A/C if you are going at the very beginning of the month.

Good luck!

Actually yk's search suggestion will only pull up threads containing the EXACT phrase "paris budget hotels."

A search that will get you many more threads would be "paris AND hotel AND budget".

Here is one to get you started:

I am sure that others can recommend more, but these will get you started. Also when choosing a hotel be sure to do so with map in hand, MANY hotels claim to be "steps from the Seine" "centrally located" etc.

If you find a hotel that interestes you, post back for specifics. Good Luck!

..margie's list looks like a terrific start! If you get stuck, try venere.com or parishotels.com and cross reference to trip advisor....also might help to get an idea which neighborhood (arrondissment) you'd like to stay in..there are a lot of "conversations" which can be pulled up on the board.

You might try the following website... the Grand Hotel Jeanne d'Arc is mentioned on it. You may want to book directly with hotels, but this gives you a good idea of cost and what the room looks like:

Hope you are checking back, as here is a hotel we stayed in last year that has small, but nice and very clean, rooms. They have simple, clean decorations -- framed drawings hung on the walls, with aqua colored wall paper, a very small, but spotless bathroom, with shower, and a friendly staff, especially an older gentleman who was on the desk at night. He always carried on a conversation with my husband and me when we came in at night. He spoke very good English. We had no complaints about the hotel, and the location was perfect... down the street from the Bon Marché, and a short walk to Saint Sulpice. Apparently, the metro ran under it, but they put us in an upper room, so we wouldn't hear it. We never did. It's very close to a metro stop... I think it's the Croix-Rouge, and the bus stops across the street.

Hotel de Saint Germain

I can second Margie's recommendation of the Hotel Victoria Chatellet. We've stayed there many times over the last 20 years and have referred many others who are always satisfied. The location alone is worth the price of admission! They are very helpful and you can do all your arrangement via email in English if you would like.

Good luck

Gorgeous day in central Indiana. While I'm waiting for lunch to finish baking my interest was piqued by the search with and without the ands. I'll put the search I used on its own line so it shows exactly what I typed into the Fodors' search box.

paris and budget and hotels

returned the exact same results as

paris budget hotels and

The words without the and

paris budget hotels

had nearly identical results. The slight variance in order of threads returned leads me to believe that the difference is how the search for the word 'and' is handled.

"paris budget hotels"

with the double quotes, not single, only returned 4 threads with that exact phrase. This is pretty much how most major search engines like google work too. The double quotes cause an exact phrase to be returned.

Well the buzzer went off and pizza is ready. Then back out into the yard to enjoy the day!

Well, my friend Wally at Grand Hotel Francais rolled out his new website a few weeks ago when I was there and I've always enjoyed the place. Be forewarned that this is not in the heavily-touristed part of the city where you will find most hotel recommendations here to be located. Rather, it is just a nice Paris neighborhood with a lot of activity, corner brasseries, boulangeries, etc. I enjoy staying there because the rates are extremely reasonable, the staff is helpful and frankly, because I'm happy to leave the tourists behind (along with some of the tourist prices). But it's a straight shot on the No. 1 Metro from Place de la Nation to the head of the Champs-Elysees and access to other areas is very easy, too. You'll do well for your target of less than 100 Euros per night.


It's worth a look.
