Subject: Re: Leveque (was:Paris hotel/less than 650FF)
The Hotel Leveque seems quite nice, i stayed nearby and walked past it each day....its not a fancy place, but the street it is on is adorable, and it is walking distance (a bit of a walk but manageable) to the eiffel tower, d'orsay, napoleons tomb, rodin museum, etc. The market is open every day and you get the chance to shop at the french eq. of the dollar store.

The french hotels are very small, and be careful not to be caught dragging food to your room (some have problems with that).

Rick steeves hotels may be a bit rustic at times, but a good value and can be quite fun. some of the smaller bed and breakfast owners can be quite an experience. It gives your trip a bit more character.
