|Subject: Paris hotel|
A very consistent recommendation is the Hotel Des Grande Ecoles. It is a 2** hotel at 75 Rue du Cardinal Lemoine in the 5th arrondissement. Metro is Cardinal Lemoine. Phone is 011.33.1.43.26.79.23. It is near the Place de la Contrescarpe which has one of Paris's largest street markets (Rue Mouffetard). The hotel is comprised of 3 buildings set back from the street surrounding a very pleasant garden. In 1997, the rates were 500-600 FFr/night.
We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Hotel Des grandes ecoles in Paris. It is considered a Hotel de Charme and rightly so.We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The staff is extremly helpful and the location is conviently close to the Metro station. You will love it. I will never stay anywhere else in Paris. Helen
