Thanks to the fantastic advice here I had decided staying in the 4th - Le Marais, was the way to go for my first trip to Paris..
Then I decided perhaps an apartment would suit me to the ground..
I am travelling alone, so am thinking most nights I will wish to eat lightly in my hotel/apartment, or very close by so I am close to 'home'..
I love walking, so am very keen to experience Paris on foot as much as I can, having recently had such a wonderful time traversing Manhattan primarily on foot!
However, I am having trouble finding accomodation that is "grabbing" me, so to speak!
And now I am liking the look of Hotel Muguet - in a totally different area to the one I thought I had settled upon!
So, my question is: what is the area like surrounding the Muguet (7th arr).. in terms of shops, food markets, cafes/restaurants, general atmosphere etc?
How will my Paris experience differ staying in the 7th as opposed to the 4th?
I am staying for four nights and wish to spend 100 euro max per night on a hotel. I do like the idea of being within walking distance to so many attractions, as in the 4th, but am struggling to find vacancies at this stage! I know in the 7th I will only be close to the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe in terms of attractions, is this correct?
Thank you all in advance for bearing with my long-winded post!
