I was going to ask which thread for hotels on neither bank - i.e. on the islands - but I see someone has already listed the Houtel de Lutece here...

I forgot to tell folks to just list the island recommendations under the Left Bank since there would probably not be enough recommendations to start a whole separate "island" thread. In my mind, I always just put it under Left Bank. Happy Travels!

We have stayed twice at Hotel Familia, 11 rue des Ecoles, in the 5th, and have been very pleased with the accommodations. It's a 2-star hotel but IMO it's closer to a 3-star in comfort. We think it's a terrific value at 104 Euro for a double with shower only, going up to 127 for a deluxe double with balcony. The hotel has a lift and A/C, and breakfast in a most attractive breakfast room is included in the price. The small-ish rooms have comfortable beds, a minibar, and a wardrobe that is actually big enough for our clothes! The reception personnel are English-speaking, friendly, and helpful. They will arrange transport to the airport through Yellow Van which was convenient and on-time when we used them. We were able to walk all over the 5th and 6th to see the tourist sites, and there are 2 metros near the hotel for trips farther away. There are two websites for the hotel: www.familiahotel.com has, I believe, the most accurate rates. You might also check www.hotel-paris-familia.com.

We had a great stay at the Hotel Muguet in the 7th in June 2007. We had 2 rooms, one with a king bed and a daybed, and the other with 2 twins. Both rooms were on the 6th floor. The lift goes to the 5th, and then there is a small staircase to the 6th. There are only 3 rooms up there. The king room had a beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower and the other room a great view of Invalides. Both rooms were quite spacious, and the bathrooms were quite nice.

The hotel breakfast was pretty basic with yogurt, coffee/juice, rolls. There is a computer in the lobby that you can use, although I do not remember if there is a fee or not.

The location is great as it is on a quiet street, yet the metro is just up the block and it is less than a 5 minute walk to the Rue Cler area as well as the Eiffel Tower.

I've stayed in a twin bed room at the Hotel St. Jacques in the 5e about five years ago, a twin room at the Hotel Saint Thomas D'Aquin on the border of the 6th and 7th a couple of years ago, and a single room at the Grand Hotel des Balcons in the eastern 5th about a year ago. All are two star and I enjoyed all of them. Next time I'll return to the Hotel Saint Thomas D'Aquin (my favourite of the three) or rent an apartment in the Marais.

I think I should add the following hotel to this list for those who have substantial budgets.

Hotel Lutetia
45, boulevard Raspail
Paris 75006
website: lutetia-paris.com

This is a luxury left-bank hotel in a great location in the 6th, bordering the 7th. It's right across from the best, in my opinion, department store in Paris, Bon Marche department store.

I haven't stayed here personally as it's out of what I want to spend for a hotel in Paris. But I suggested it, some years ago, to a travel specialist, at Amercian Express Platinum, who had never been to Paris and wanted some place special. He's the travel specialist I used to call to book me into 4-5 star hotels, around the world, which I had researched and selected prior to calling him.

I called him after he had returned and he said that his experience there could not have been better. He booked a split-level junior sweet for himself and his fiance. He said everything was perfect and they loved the hotel,service, and area. Happy Travels!
