Hi the Leveque has been much praised on this forum, try doing a search. Minerve as well, I think
Also look for comments at

Bleah! Minerve was awful! You can definitely do better. Don't stay there, the service was awful and just about ruined my last paris trip!

I can vouch for Leveque. We stayed there in November 2000 and were quite happy with the hotel and the great neighborhood it is in. The hotel is not fancy by any means but does have decent sized rooms, modern bathrooms (ours had shower only) and a big plus was the in room safe - uncommon for 2 star hotel.
We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Other hotels we have used in Paris and would return to include the Grand Hotel Jeanne d'Arc in Marais, the TimHotel Bourse (TimHotel is a local chain of decent hotels, some 2 star and some 3 star) and then the ultra expensive Hotel Bristol. For the average visitor the Bristol is out of reach (as I recall the room rate starts at about $400 a night)

Minerve has recently changed hands. It is now owned and run by the folks who have the Familia. Given the positive reputaion of Familia, I would expect Minerve to be on the upswing.

I stayed at the Ducs de Bourgogne last spring. My single room was small but comfortable and nicely furnished. The friends I was traveling with shared a double room, which was considerably more spacious (though not huge by any means). The only other difference between the two rooms that I can recall is that their room included a tub in the bathroom, whereas mine had only a shower stall. The hotel is conveniently located on the Right Bank--two or three blocks from the Seine and within easy walking distance of the Louvre and a subway stop. Hope this is helpful. Enjoy your trip!

I've stayed at des Ducs de Bourgogne -- nice accomodations, good price and very convenient if you want a Right Bank location near the Louvre. The big Samaritaine dept store is right next door and, if you happen to have a car, there's a great underground parking lot just a block away.
