Hello,
I plan to be in Paris at the end of January 2008 and would like to know if you have suggestions for reasonably priced accomodations in a fairly central location, close to a tube station. Plain and simple is fine, as long as it is clean and in a safe area.
I appreciate your input.
Happy New Year to all.
Kay Prucha

Hotel Beauvoir Dec 31, 2007

I stayed there a loooong time ago. It's right next to the Jardins du Luxembourg and the Port Royale subway station. It's on Avenue Georges Bernanos if I still recall well. Not sure if they have a website, haven't looked.
It's very simple, but I loved its location.

Some friends of mine stayed at Hotel Flaubert last year. It's near the Arc de Triomphe. Same thing: basic but great location.

Take a look at these hotel chains: Timhotel, Ibis, Mercure. They have lots of hotels scattered around the city, the hotels are pretty much standard and sometimes they have good prices.

HTH

Happy New Year

Accommodation in Paris Dec 31, 2007

Hello,

Well, the four of us - husband, 2 teenagers and myself, stayed at this hotel in October (2007):

http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:Ws0Dv_aZW0gJ:www.chomel-paris-hotel.com/%20hotel%20chomel&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=uk&client=firefox-a

Special 3-night deals, clean and simple. Not a huge room, but comfortable and lovely shower-room...close to the River Seine and the Louvre....in a quiet, narrow street..

I'd recommend it!

Liz Askew

p.s. about 2 minutes walk to the nearest tube station in a safe environment!

For future reference Jan 8, 2008

Hi Katharine

I'm jumping on the bandwagon too late but for future reference there are the youth hostels run by MIJE http://www.mije.com/paris.html The one in Le Marais (I think it's called Fauconnier) is particularly splendid.

Have a great time in Paris!

Sandra
