Just-right hotel?

We're making our 3rd Paris trip in May. I'd appreciate suggestions for a hotel that would be ideally:

1. Located in a pedestrian area of town.

2. Super-clean and well-maintained.

3. Priced at less than $400 per night for a large well-lit room or suite.

4. Very convenient to Metro stops.

5. Not in Montmartre.

Any suggestions appreciated!

If you are willing to go up to $400, you could try the Hotel Lotti.

If by 'pedestrian area' you mean no vehicular traffic, you're probably not going to find anything.

For ref. purposes, $400 is about 290€.

Best Western Jardin de Cluny is in the Latin Quarter, walkable to St-GFermain, the Panthéon, the Jardins du Luxembourg, Notre-Dame, etc. and has Junior Suites in your price range.

Compare their best price on the BW site with Expedia, sometimes price is a lot better on Expedia, even though you have to pay in advance.

We have stayed at the Hotel Muguet just blocks from the Seine in the 7e arrondissement(which is near Eiffel Tower). The hotel is immaculate and it is located on a quiet side street. The hotel is not a chain and it is only a 2 star...but it was recently renovated. The hotel is just a few blocks from Rue Cler which a neat market area. The rooms range in cost from about $125 to $220 per night.

A hotel can make or break a trip for us.....this hotel was perfect for us.

Check out these excellent choices in the upper-6eme--Saint Germain des Prés--(check individual hotel sites for any special 'promotional'/'package' rate offers)

Paris has simply LOADS of decent, clean, small Hotels in quiet streets that you will never have heard of, yet these quiet streets can be literally YARDS away from the main action!!

I once stayed in the Fleche D'or in Rue D'Amsterdam, close to Gare St Lazare, the famous big department stores of Galleries Lafayette & Printemps, Place Clichy, Pigalle, Moulin Rouge and all that 'stuff' and yet a quieter street you would be hard to find (in Paris terms that is!!).

Fleche d'Or is another Best Western Hotel, but there are great deals to be had all over the internet for this place.

If you don't like this location though, have a look at Best Western website, they have hotels all over paris and many of them in simmilar vein!

You might look at the Villa d'Estrees in the 6th. The location is good and the rooms are large.

How about an island on the Seine, just west of Notre Dame. This island may get as pedestrian as one would hope. It would be walking distance to quite a few tourist sites as well as restaurants on both the right and left banks of Paris.

There are four hotels on the Ile St. Louis: Jeu de Paume, St. Louis, Lutece, and Deux Iles. Lutece and Deux Iles are owned by a M. Buffat who owns two other hotels, the Galileo in the 8th and the Henri IV Rive Gauche in the 5th. If any of these appeal to you then check the TA for recent reviews.

Ile St Louis is an ace idea, you can't really get more 'pedestrian' in Paris than that!!

I stayed at the Hotel Select a few months ago and can recommend it. It's on Place Sorbonne, which has now been pedestrianised.
