This is my first time to Paris, so will want to do all the usual tourist (trap) things as well as just catching the cafe culture. I am arriving in May for 5 nights. Can I have your tried and tested recommendations for accommodation which would suit a single female traveller who will need to get a few hours sleep a night, and within easy walking distance of a great cafe to get her morning hit of coffee. Budget is around 100E a night which can be stretched for the right place. I dont want achingly hip...its not my cup of tea! But something nice, small, chi-chi would be fab. Near a metro would be an added bonus as I have a broken foot so walking, whilst do-able, is a tad limited.

    I would definitely recommend staying away from the Montmarte area, as it is quite seedy. The opera area or the Latin quarter are my two favourites, there are many many small hotels in Paris, so you won't be stuck for choice.

    Hopefully that shall help for a start. over 7 years ago

    In January I stayed at Hotel Concorde Montparnasse:

    It's a couple of minutes walk from the Eurostar railway station and subway. It was a very nice, modern hotel, with english speaking staff and a good location to explore Paris from.

    My older sister chose this hotel when we holidayed and she was happy with it - so I might be able to conclude it's suitable for a female traveler :) over 7 years ago

    I've stayed in Montmarte and Montparnasse in non-peak periods, both were fine. Montmarte is not for the unwary in the middle of summer. over 7 years ago
