Need help in settling on a Paris Neighborhood to stay

Just some coaching here please.I have to think where ever you stay in Paris just as long as a metro is near by you can access the rest of the city.Given that, and access to eateries/bakeries/restaurants, I am looking for suggestions on neighborhoods/Arr for which to stay. Time is running short and we need to locate a 2 bedroom. Suggestions appreciated.Thank you.

How long will you be in Paris. If it is your first trip I would look for something in the 4th 5th or 6th near the river. If that is too pricey the 11th and the 14th are also convenient districts. But it depends a lot on how long. If you are there a couple of weeks it doesn't matter; if you are there 4 or 5 nights then location is critical.

My sister and her family were in Paris recently and stayed at K&K Hotel Cayré, St. Germaine des preś. They were there for only one week and loved the location and hotel. They had also stayed at their property in London the year before.

The all-important thing is to look for the 13-digit registration number, which is tied to the property owner's financial information.
If you don't see it, it won't be legal.
I don't think you will find a 2 bedroom flat at this late notice. If someone will be sleeping on a sleeper couch, you will have no privacy.
The Metro is always nearby - about 500 metres - except in the 17th and 7th arrondissements.

You might be limited by what you can find and afford--won't necessarily have your pick of neighborhoods unless you're early and/or rich.

I wouldn't necessarily go for the "navette vers CDG Paris", though.
You can take a taxi - the navette will take too much time.
