PARIS: hotel recs for college girls?

My college-aged daughter and niece will be spending a night or two in Paris in early March, for a quick weekend from London. (My niece is spending a semester abroad there, and my daughter will be visiting her.) While my daughter has been to Paris twice, this will be my niece's first time.
Since their stay is so short, I'm trying to find a hotel that is less than 200€ per night) and is centrally located, but also fun and safe.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Merci!
Dina

Early March shouldn't post a great problem in that price range. You can try the Hôtel de Latour Maubourg, 150 Rue De Grenelle, Hotel Muguet, 11 Rue Chevert, and Hotel de L'Empereur, 2 Rue Chevert, all in the 7th. The location is great and the price isn't bad.

I took a group of teens to Hotel Marigan. Nothing fancy, but in the Larin Quarter area and very popular with college age kids.

Try the Hotel du College de France--also in the Latin Quarter. It's a clean, relatively inexpensive and well situated hotel with a helpful staff. It will be easy to reach by Metro or RER from Gare du Nord.

In Paris, we always stay at the Hotel Bonaparte, 61 Rue Bonaparte in the 6th. From 139E dbl + bkfst. It is just around the corner from Place St. Sulpice, near 3 metro stops and 4 bus routes. Has AC and an elevator.

The staff speaks English well, and is very helpful. The front desk is staffed 24/7

They can arrange a shuttle pickup to CDG for you.

I don't know the hotels in the 7th that Robert suggests, but college age kids would probably prefer the 5th or even the 6th - more lively. Hotel Albe and Hotel Europe Saint Severin are in the Latin Quarter. My college age daughter liked both. Look at booking.com for reservations and reviews.

I also think hotels in the 5th would be more appropriate for them, I don't think those locations in the 7th are that great, myself, I wouldn't want to stay there, I think they are good for older people. The H COllege de France is a good idea in the Latin Qtr. Rooms are going to be small, of course, but it's a good location and price.

It will be pretty easy to find a hotel less than 200 euro, actually. They could also consider these

I"ve stayed at this place, it's nice and on a quieter side street http://www.hotelsorbonne.com/en/

This hotel is only about a block from the Luxembourg RER, which is convenient for the airport (so is the H de la Sorbonne).

Agree about the 5th or 6th being much more fun for them, although they might also enjoy the 4th. Have you considered looking at hostels? They'd be full of similarly aged travelers who want to go out and meet new people. Might be a lot more fun for a couple college girls than an hotel would be, especially if you go with a slightly higher-end one and get them a private room.

I agree that the 4th, 5th and even the 6th would be better for them than the 7th.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the 11th... I thought that was a popular place for young people, but then, I'm old and wouldn't really know.

Anyone?
