Public phone access in Paris?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to decide between two options for where to stay for 5 nights in Paris.

One is a vey inexpensive hotel near St. Michel with a phone in the room, and the other is a studio on St. Antoine with no phone. It's only available for 4 nights, so if we took it, we'd likely stay at the hotel for one night and then move. Not ideal, but not a deal breaker either

I've stayed in both areas before, and really prefer the right bank.

My question is DH's phone is for work, and couldn't be used overseas. I am a total Luddite with a pay as you go phone, it has no options available to purchase a travel plan. I've looked into it a dozen times, no luck. My mother is elderly and likes to keep in touch. She's not on the internet, so no emails. It is increasingly difficult to find pay phones, which would be another option, buy a phone card there and use it to call her.

Does anyone know if there phone cafés or phone booths near to st. Antoine if we go that route?

Really it comes down to location or phone. Peace of mind or a preferable area. I feel ridiculous even saying that out loud-a grown woman should be able to decide herself!
