|Subject: Re: Single Woman Safety in Paris?|
In November, we stayed in Le Marais in the 4th arrondissement, a very gay area in every sense of the word. We love it there. The biggest hazard you might face is inadvertently stepping in some doggy doo but paying attention to where you step is easier than looking over your shoulder to see if anyone is following you.
Although the room we had at the Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais was fine for our needs, we have heard that the single rooms tend to be too small for comfort - so we hesitate (if that is indeed the case) to recommend that you stay there.
You might try the Hotel Mahler, also in the 4th, where we stayed in 1999 - see our travelogue: http://www.thetravelzine.com/paris699.htm. Be sure to follow the link to our friend Jack in Belgium's terrific web site. Jack knows Paris inside-out.
Looking forward to meeting you at the Hotel delle Muse in a month! :-)
Ciao for now, Linda and Don
