You know, there has to be a better way to keep this thread going. Is the revision to the site that Fodors keeps promising going to make any allowance for "continuing threads?" Alternately we might just copy the separate threads that get started about hotels in Paris onto one of the two that you've started here, Guenmai. I think this is a good idea, but it's hard to keep going somehow.

Julie-I'll just keep the thread going by topping it from time to time. I try to do it weekly, but sometimes it tops and sometimes it doesn't. Happy Travels!

Julie- I really don't want other threads copied onto my thread and thus cluttering things up.
I've started the hotel threads to try to make it easy on folks, who need the information, and want to be able to read through it and print it relatively fast. Happy Travels!

Ok, sure hope it works. I've posted my favorites. That's the best I can do. I'm returning to Parc St. Severin in March--if they'll have me.

Julie: It might not get topped again until around the first of the New Year as I'm off to Buenos Aires in a few days. But, if I have computer access I'll be on the forum. Happy Travels!

3 budget options on the Right Bank:

My favourite hotel in Paris so far, the one that is going to be my first choice from now on, Hotel France Albion.
http://www.albion-paris-hotel.com/
Nice and quiet, very clean and pleasant. Perfect location as far as I'm concerned; in a residential neighbourhood, very near a fabulous market street (rue des Martyrs) and various bakeries, food stores and restaurants.

Other good experiences on the Right Bank, which I seem to like a little better than the Left (even though I have stayed there too, I have so far never stayed at the same hotel more than once):

Hotel Madeleine Opera

Hotel d'Espagne

I just remember that I stayed at another right bank hotel that was VERY nice: Hotel Gotty Opera on rue Trevise, in the 9th. I loved that hotel. I'm just not one for the 9th. I'm a left bank person.

I was to stay with my Parisian friend and her father, on that trip, but her father suddenly died and I had to make very fast last-minute rearrangements.I called United's travel service, and they put me into that hotel. It's a block from the Folies Berges (sp?)which was my view out of my balcony window. Happy Travels!

The Hotel Britannique in the 1st is wondeful! We stayed there for nearly a week in July 2007. We had two rooms, one with a queen bed and the other with 2 twins. The queen room was small, but the other was quite spacious. Both rooms had enormous closets, mini bars, great a/c, nice bathrooms, and quiet/darkening shades built into the windows. Both rooms faced the street, yet noise was not a factor at all. The hotel has a nice breakfast, and a great sitting room off of the lobby.

There is a metro station sort of kitty corner, as well as many restaurants, shops, and a post office nearby. Very short walk to the Louvre as well.

The staff were very helpful and they will give you a map of the nearby area and can make restaurant suggestions, and show you on the map how to get there.

Maybe someone will see this and help me out: I need a hotel very near the Gare St Lazare, for a conference at a hospital that is on a train line direct from the Gare. Most attendees want to stay in central Paris but very near the Gare St Lazare.

Anyone been in a good hotel in this area? I guess around 200 euro.

It would really help if people would post prices as well as location. My idea of "reasonable" is a lot less than the 235 euro the cheapest room at the Brighton costs! In fact, I paid 67 euro for a single at the Hotel Le Sevigne - www.le-sevigne.com - in the Marais last month. No charm, but great location, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water - even a heated towel rail.

Tuscanlifeedit- I've started this thread to provide a list of different hotels. If you have a specific question, please start a thread for that so that this doesn't turn into a discussion thread. I'm trying to keep it as uncluttered and easy to access information as possible. Thanks. Happy Travels!

Thursdaysd-This is a list of just "hotels", not a list of just "reasonable hotels". Different readers are in different price ranges. I would just like lots of different hotel ideas to flow.

I started this thread to try to help folks get a jump start on hotel ideas. They can then print the list and do additional research on those they might be interested in.

We do get a lot of "newbies" on the forum who have no idea of what hotel to possibly choose.

I would hope that folks would post an approximate price, as I've asked for complete information. However, if they don't (maybe they have forgotten) , then fine. The reader can look that up. Hope this list is helping folks. Happy Travels!

"This is a list of just "hotels", not a list of just "reasonable hotels". " - I understand that (and thanks for starting the list). My problem was with people who just say a hotel is "reasonable", without giving a price. One such post was for the Brighton, which turned out to cost 235 euros.

Guenmai, in your initial post you said "The apartment Thread has already been started..." I tried to search for it under the title "Paris Apartment Thread" and nothing came up.

Would you be kind enough to provide a link, or at least the actual title, so that we all could access it? Many thanks!
