After trying over 20 Paris hotels (including the Four Seasons), I will look no further than the Hotel Mahler. It's marvelously clean, inexpensive, bigger rooms than most at this price level, has a mini bar, is quiet and only a one minute walk to the #1 metro, the best visitor's line in Paris. Delicious breads for breakfast. Great Zagat pick restaurants and shopping all around. Everyone in my group, ages 14, 40, 45, and 70, loved the place. Couldn't find any flaws.
