Subject: Paris Hotels
We stayed at a nice place in the 6th (bordering the 5th, really) when we were in Paris last May. It's called the Hotel St. Paul on Rue Monsieur du Prince. It's small, about 30 rooms (most small as usual) - the largest rooms (even big by NY standards) are those facing the street (I think #43 or #45 - you can ask, if your interested). The hotel is in easy walking distance to the Odeon metro stop, as well as some great shops and restaurants. I posted a good review on the ziner hotel database. In May, we paid just over $100US for 2, including a nice continental breakfast. The hotel is part of the Abotel group (although it does not feel like a chain at all), and they also have a slightly more upscale hotel call Clos Medici right up the street. Also in the same area (if you want to be in the 6th) is what looks like a beautiful place call Relais St. Sulpice (right behind the Church of St. Sulplice).

We used the web site and had great luck in finding nice places in a wide range of prices.
