paris hotel recommendations please

I will be visiting Paris for the first time this July...so will be wanting to see all the major attractions. From what I can tell the 6th or the 7th is the place to stay, proximity-wise. Can anyone give me hotel recommendations for either of these areas? Looking for moderately priced accomodations (not cheap but not luxury either) and would prefer a "french" hotel (ie family owned or some such) rather than a chain

Also, i've researched a few already: Hotel Bersolys, Hotel Muguet, Hotel L'Abbaye, Familia. Has anyone stayed in these?

Thanks in advance.

The Familia is a good hotel. I've stayed in this area and will again, also this July! I would recommend the Hotel Champs De Mars. I have stayed there. A single is about $70 a night with a bathroom/shower. It is family owned, but in many guidebooks and so you will find Americans there, but so what? It is in a great location right on the Rue Cler within a block of the Eiffel Tower. And just down the Rue Cler is the Grand Laveque another well priced, family run hotel. With the market street, this neighborhood feels small while being well located to many sights. The Familia is on a busy stree so if you choose it, I would recommend a room on the courtyard.
Happy Travels!

I'd go with Bersoly's because it's in a wonderful neighborhood straddling the 6th and 7th, a block or two from the D'Orsay, right across the bridge from the Louvre and well-located for all of Paris's other attractions. I love this neighborhood. It's the high-end antiques area of the Left Bank, with lots of lovely moderate restaurants and great strolling. It's also in walking distance (15-20 minutes)of the heart of the 6th, with all its outdoor cafes and street life.
