Paris Hotels under $100

Hi,
It has been mentioned many times in this forum that you can find a great hotel in the latin quarter for under $100 per night. Now that I am looking I can't find anything in that area for under 100. Can anyone tell me where I should be looking.

Thanks

With the euro to dollar ratio getting higher, that $100 mark is getting more difficult.

Look into current rates for
Hotel de Lys (no elevator, but said to be very nice)
Residence Monge
Home Latin

a search on these here or at tripadvisor.com should get you good guest comments

I think most of those posts were back when the euro and dollar were more or less equal. It is still fairly easy to find a hotel for under 100 euro, but keeping it under $100 means more like under 70 euro, and that's getting harder all the time.

But in the search function, type in inexpensive Paris hotels and click France. You will find many threads on this issue.

Hotel Familia on Rue des Ecoles. The single rooms (you didnt specify) were about 85 or so,,,but really very small...the double rooms were about 100 or 105 when i went in October and quite comfortable. ask for a room with a view to the street.

Check out the "Budget Hotels in Paris" entry here (from 8/23/2004):

http://www.fodors.com/forums/pgMessa...2&tid=34519236

I've stayed at Hotel de Lille on r. Pelican. It's very central but very basic. Probably about 60 Euros a night? I got a private bath.

Also, Time Out Paris has some budget recommendations.

Try searching www.routard.com. There are decent-looking hotels listed in the 5th there for as little as 40 euros. I've been using the hard copy book for years with considerable success.

Hi... you posted earlier about the Intercontinental and also made a comment that along the lines that 'price doesn't matter'..'as long as it isn't $500'... or something similar...
What has changed since those posts? Just worried about the Dollar/Euro ratio?
Also, it really matters if you're looking for a single or a double before a lot of people start helping - please inform us... thanks.

p.s. Hotel du Lys runs about 115€ for a double.

If you just want to "hotel shop", try these:
www.parishotels.com
www.france-hotel-guide.com
www.cybevasion.com
www.hotelsearch-in-paris.com
www.eurocheapo.com
www.venere.com

You can put a price range and location into the search criteria on most of those.

I don't think the >$100USD and IN the Latin Quarter is so easy these days, possible but not like even a few years ago. Recent Fodors threads about acceptable and cheap hotels in were in more outer areas from the center of the city.

Also the most basic budget hotels may not have websites so you'd need to be working with a guidebook then telephone &/or fax.

My son is staying in the Marais in March at the Hotel du Marais. There are good and bad reviews on it, he is getting a very cheap rate, less than $100-
I have no idea how 'great' that hotel is for the money, as we are also looking and the Latin Quarter is no bargain any more.
Good luck, ktyson!

Scarlett, please ask you son for a review of the Hotel du Marais to post here (and tripadvisor) I enjoy staying in the Marais and I am always on the lookout for budget accomodations as we like to stay for at least 6 days (that can add up, and I would hate to cut into my wine and pastry budget )

LOL, yes, the wine and pastry budget!
I saw that awful review on tripadvisor and got worried for him, but he will be arriving from 10 weeks in India, he might not notice much at all in the way of hotel amenities!
We will be there too at that time, but staying in either the 1st or the Left Bank/Latin quarter or 7th..so many choices make it harder, not easier!
I will find out everything for you though

The du Lys is 110 euro for a double, which is now way over $100.

A few months ago Conde Nast Traveler highlighted the Hotel Port-Royal (in the 5th, I believe? or edge of 6th?)which at that time was $100. It sounded like good value for the $$.

We stayed at Hotel Saint Jacques(in the 5th) for 85E which is more than $100 - but since it includes the taxes, it isn't too much more. Our room was on the top floor and was small, but nicely furnished. There is an elevator, but you have to walk up one flight of stairs to the top floor.

I've stayed at the Hotel Monge. The room was small but spotless. The location is excellent and the breakfast was very good. I don't know what the price is now but I'm sure they have a website.

Hi all, and thanks so much for all of your replies. Travelnut, you asked about earlier post where I asked about the intercontinental and said that money wasn't a big deal. But now I am asking about hotels that are under $100. When I made that first post that was in the very beginning of my planning, and things have changed somewhat since then. In the beginning I was only going for a week, but after I realized I could get a decent hotel for less then $100 I extended my vacation to 2 weeks. So now money is more of an issue then it was before. I need to budget better to make my vacation funds stretch over two weeks instead of one.

For those of you that asked, I need a double room. One full bed or two twin beds will work.
