Where are the Cheap and Cheerfull Hotels in Paris?

Hi there, does anyone know where there is a Cheap and Cheerfull Hotel/Pension in or near Paris Central. I have always dreamed of visiting there. So I made a plans to go with my best friend from Brisbane, she is an Artist and has been there before.She went ahead and booked a place to stay with out consulting me. At first she said she booked a Hotel in Paris that was only one hundred and sixty dollars for three nights. She has now emailed me today she booked an apartment on the Internet, Its occupied by a couple who are renting us their spare room, with only a double bed, and they have only one bathroom that we have to share with them, they are charging us two hundred dollars each for three nights, it is near the City and we can share their Kitchen, which they say in the add. I dont feel comfortable sharing a strangers home on my first trip to Paris. I have looked on the Central Europe Travel website but find it confusing!!!. We plan to go on the 12th of may till the 17th May. If any one has any ideas of where we can stay within our Budget, It would be most grateful Cheers Joanne

If you are going to Paris by train, it is worth booking the train and Hotel with the SBB at least 6 weeks ahead, as they usually have good discounts on train tickets, the large stations have travel agents, "Reisebüro"

Quite a few years back I stayed in the Hotel MacMahon near the Etoile. It is a simple 3 star hotel and was quite reasonable back then. Obviously the location is pretty central also.

Re: Where are the Cheap and Cheerfull Hotels in Paris?

Ibis Hotels are nice and "cheap " for Paris. Parking your car however can cost up to 70€ per night so be aware of this. ( no double entendre, i do mean the vehicle you may rent)

Ibis is the cheaper one, good tho, all comfort there for a reasonable price.

The other ones belonging to the Accor group are more expensive, F1 Hotel, Novotel etc.. a clean room ,bed and own bathroom is all you need, don't see the difference in why paying more for the same room.

For transport,buy yourself a 3 day ticket for the Metro system, easiers and cheapest,quickest way of getting around.

When you go to a cafe ( pub ), know it is cheaper to order wine then lemonade as they will charge you the same price for a small glass.

It is also cheaper to order at the bar then letting the waiter come outside to you, i remember them charging 0.70 cent more because they had to bring it outside to us.

Other then that, April/May is a great time to go, at least its not flooded with as many tourists as you would have in June and further onwards.

Enojoy it as its a lovely city to visit, and take your time doing so.
