Your fave Paris hotel under $100 for two

Hi
I'm doing some last-minute research for a friend, Paris first-timer.
Looking for hotel in the 5th,6th, or 7th, elevator preferred, a/c ( very end of Sept) not necessary.

I stayed at Hotel des Balcons in the 6th for 100 Euro. There is no air conditioning but there is an elevator. It is near the metro Odeon.

We just stayed at Hotel Monge in the Latin Quarter and loved it. The price was in your range, the correspondence beforehand was great, and the hotel was very clean and updated.

Ask for a room with a balcony facing the street.

I started using this site back in '98 when looking for a $100 or less hotel in Paris. At the time, the two at the top of everyone's list were the Hotel des Grandes Ecoles in the 5th and the Hotel Champs du Mar in the 7th. I got into the GE and loved it; this April I finally stayed at CdM. Both really are good (although GE may be a little higher than $100 now), and both are in nice but very different neighborhoods. I would recommend either.

Hotel Muguet in the 7th. I cannot recommend this hotel enough - it is truly wonderful. Great comments on tripadvisor.com (take no notice of the sourpuss Canadian comments - the staff are perfectly friendly but you cannot expect 5 star concierge service from a 2 star). Also, I agree with one of the comments posted that this hotel really should be a 3 star.

A/C, super clean bathrooms, CNN, etc. and a very bright, modern reception with conservatory for breakfast.

I think the cheapest double is 95 Euros so about 10 bucks over your budget...

Another great hotel in the shadow of Notre Dame is Hotel Parc St. Severin. It should run about 100 euros/night. The best rooms are the fifth floor and above; ask for a larger corner room. Tripadvisor also has reviews of this hotel!

Grand Hotel Leveque on Rue Cler in the 7th. The street in front of the hotel is closed to traffic and an open air food market operates mosts days. The hotel has its own website. Enjoy.

Hi Elaine,

I've stayed in the Balcons twice, Muguet, Michelet-Odeon, and Grandes Ecoles. My vote goes to the Grandes Ecoles for the prettiest rooms and the garden.

Last time I stayed at the Balcons it was looking a bit seedy. That was in 1994. Perhaps it's been renovated by now. The Muguet was very nice and had AC but I didn't care for the location. Michelet Odeon was just OK decor wise and noisy.

One more: Hotel de la Sorbonne (http://www.hotelsorbonne.com/) in the 5th. Elevator yes, a/c no. Recently renovated, with decent-sized, attractive rooms. Rates are 80E for showers/90E for baths.

For about 100E, Hotel St. Jacques on rue des Ecoles is also a good choice and has the same amenities.

I'll second the Grand Hotel Leveque recommendation. Two of us stayed there in Oct. for 84 Euros, and the room was just fine - clean, comfortable. There is an elevator, too.

The Abbatial St. Germain is in the 5th. It's a nice, friendly, well-kept place with an elevator and a nice breakfast room with a good continental breakfast. The rooms are small, but well-decorated with Italian marble bathrooms.

Hotel du College de France (http://www.hotel-collegedefrance.com), at 7 rue Thenard in the 5th (just off rue des Ecoles) is a good value hotel in that price range. There's an elevator, but it only goes to the fifth floor, and there is a sixth floor, so if your room is on the sixth floor you have to climb one flight of stairs.

I second both the Hotel du College de France and the Grandes Ecoles, both in the 5th. I very much enjoyed my stay at both places (Grandes Ecoles in '97 and CDF in '02).
