I came across this community and was very impressed with the helpful information provided by the group.
Signed up immediately and decided to post.
We are doing an all girls trip to Paris in early May (for 4 nights).
While the visit will involve trips to the many attractions Paris has to offer, coupled with good eating places & clubs, Opera & local shopping
With so many options available for stay the most difficult part was to zero in on an area to stay (which arrisondement ?) which was close to a metro so that its convenient for visiting the attractions as well as safety in terms of moving around late evenings (not too late in the night, i am hoping) or to-and-fro from the Metros and back to the hotel
I read that staying very close to the metro is most important
I was looking at some help in getting suggestions to find a good budget hotel (say between $90-$120 a night - plus/minus a few), possibly a 3-star / 4-star with Breakfast
Would the group have any specific recommendations.
The shortlisted ones are:
1. Holiday Inn Paris Elysees
2. Holiday Inn Paris Gare du Lyon Bastille
3. Hotel Saint Germain
4. Novotel Paris Center Bercy
Any other recommendations would also be welcome....
Many thanks you in advance.
