Please help find hotel near Montorgueil market street in $150 range.

We are renting an apartment in October one block off this lovely market street and have friends who are visiting us and need a hotel withing walking distance. I think a 15 minute walk would not be out of the question, so does anyone know a charming hotel ranging from 150-200 or so a night? The hotel Mansart near Place Vendome looks incredible, but would it be too far? Also am considering St. Merry, Britanique, and something around Place Victoires. Thank you.

I would recommend the Novotel at Les Halles.It is a 2 minute walk to Montorqueil. Never had a bad experience at a Novotel.

Thank you Larry and Ira. The immediate area around Les Halles is less appealing than many, but I must say the hotel looks sharp. Price for October is $400 right now. Bit steep. Has anyone stayed in the Grand Hotel de Besancon on Montorgueil?

I don't think there is a 'Grand Hotel de Besancon' anymore. Its address at 57 rue Montorgueil is now Hotel Victoires Opera, dolled up and much more expensive. (214-335E)

56 rue Montorgueil, not 57

Sorry to recommend such a ridiculously expense hotel as the Novotel at Les Halles. I did not realize it was so expensive. I have stayed at a lot of Novotels but never paid anything close to 400 euros.

Perhaps it was due to the date, but I don't think the Novotel is always that expensive. IN any case, I think you can be almost guaranteed of getting it if you bid on Priceline in that area for a 4* hotel, as there aren't hardly any. Doublecheck that info, but that's what I remember.

I appreciate your ideas and was very happy to get info on defunct Hotel Besancon. I have read about the Victoires and will check further. Also will recheck rates at Novotel Les Halles. Has anyone stayed at the Hotel Beaubourg?

Another thought I had was the Mansart just because it gets such high marks from Christina, I believe. Is there a bus that runs straight down Rue de Petit Champs to Montorgueill? Our friends could manage that.

Bus #29 runs one way on rue des Petits Champs and the opposite way on rue du Quatre Septembre.

The Hôtel Mansart is delightful, but if you aspire to get a reservation there in October, ask now! That's a very busy month in Paris because of all the trade and other shows, and the Mansart has a strong European clientele that book a year ahead.

I've heard the Mansart is nice, but I've never stayed there myself, so you must be thinking of someone else who highly recommended it.

Yes, Christina, I was mistaken...Underhill was the one. Appreciate the help you've offerred. Still searching the areas near the Beaubourg and Les Halles and parts of the Marais. Mansart does sound divine.
