Paris - Areas

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend an area which is ideal to stay in Paris.

There is soooo many hotel's and options.

Would be on a budget and not intending in spending much time in the hotel.

I know you get a metro just about anywhere but would also be nice to have options close by the hotel too

I stayed in this hostel last year:

Paris Hostels - St Christopher's Paris

Decent atmosphere and it was close to a couple of metro stops (the Paris metro system is brilliant) and various pubs, restaurants and clubs. There's also a Holiday Inn Express in the same complex if hostel living isn't your thing.

Had some amazing veal in a place called Draco's just round the corner:

Blue planet hostel next to gare de Lyon. I swear by this place and use it every time I go to Paris. 21 yoyos a night including a coffee and croissant in the morning. Safe, secure, nice, cheap, close to loads of stuff.

Stayed near Pigalle/Montmarte in this hotel in 2003 SITE OFFICIEL - Accueil - Hotel Migny Opra Montmartre *** (Paris, France) - hotel paris, hotel in paris, hotel france, hotel paris france, hotel paris rservation, discount hotel paris france, hotel paris cheap, hotel online paris rservation, charm Was nice enough and seemed cheap (was Aberdeen Uni History of Art year 4 class trip=ACE), the area is buzzy, seedy on nearby Pigalle (Moulin Rouge and much dirtier), but exciting, interesting, decadent seedy. Breakfast at Le Coqliquot near Abbesses metro, Dinner at the No Stress Cafe (seriously), steaktastic.

They are still there I see, stuff in Paris just persists, in the best way.

The 9th arr.

Or you could go to another bit just as good

I stayed in a very nice wee hotel in La Defense last time I was there. Got it dirt cheap through one of these hotel booking sites; the room was just exactly what you need for a short stay, and there was a beautiful wee garden where you could sit and eat your breakfast in the morning. La Defense itself is pretty interesting for a wander, and there's a metro just nearby Hotels La Defense Paris | Hotel Le Dauphin in La Defense Paris | Hotels near La Defense Paris

Pretty much anywhere is sure to have decent hotels though, just avoid the more 'touristy' areas, because prices skyrocket.
