JourneyWomen Recommend Hotels in Paris...

 

Eight minutes from the Eiffel Tower...

I just wanted to let you know that when in Paris I always stay at the IBIS Hotel, Cambronne. It is just across the street from the Cambronne Métro stop, it always has the same rate (I stay there twice a year for the past four years), it is an 8 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, and two blocks away (on weekends) is a street market that is four blocks long. Finally, it is a ten minute walk to Rue Cler and all the fresh, daily, markets. Address: 2 rue Cambronne, 75015 Paris, fax: +33 1 40612229.

Also near the Eiffel Tower...

I spent a week in Paris in December (my first visit since 1972) and recommend the Hotel Muguet (11 rue Chevert--75007 Paris) in the 7th Arrondissement on the Left Bank. Located in the Rue Cler neighborhood it is only blocks from the Eiffel Tower, The Invalides and Rodin Museum. Situated on a quiet side street this gem has nicely appointed rooms and a very friendly staff. I understand the Michelin writers stay there and I understand why they do. The closest metro is École Militaire. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Paris! (tel: 01 4705 05 93)

Just a block away is the Rue Cler outdoor market where you'll find a post office, the wonderful Boulangerie/Pastisserie which served fresh squeezed orange juice, the Café Du Marché for filling lunch and dinners, and shops & stalls offering fresh fruits, breads, cheeses and chocolates. If you're so inclined just walk a couple of more blocks and you'll find an "Irish" pub. This whole neighborhood is delightfully charming.

Free breakfasts for the kids...

I travelled to Paris for a weekend with a woman I work with, my 11 year-old daughter and her 8 year-old daughter. We stayed at the Hotel California, near the Arch de Triomphe. The hotel "special rate" was great, they gave us a large room with three beds in it, and didn't charge for the kids to have breakfast in the morning (the breakfast was great too). I would definitely stay there again.

Lots of restaurants close by...

I found a great hotel on the left bank, Hotel Sunny at 48 Boulevard Port Royal, 5th Arr. (http://www.hotelsunny.com). My girlfriend and I stayed there for a week and enjoyed the breakfasts consisting of baguettes, croissants and chocolate croissants ($6.00). There were many nice restaurants within walking distance -- Vietnamese, Italian, Moroccan, corner cafes and patisseries. The hotel is near Les Gobelins metro stop, the Montparnasse rail station, and a short walk to Jardin du Luxembourg.

H
otel Sunny is a two-star hotel and you have a choice of rooms with a toilet and shower or a toilet and bathtub. The bath is a little bit more than the shower. The price for a double bed with shower is $71.00. All rooms have TVs and hair dryers. There was a desk, but no dresser. A small closet had two shelves we used for our folded up clothes, socks and underwear. The staff is very helpful although we didn't find out until we checked out that the desk staff spoke English. However, the maids do not speak English. I wished I'd learned to say "More towels, please" when the maid arrived at an inconvenient time for cleaning.
