Subject: Re: Hotels in Europe - Paris
Hi - We stayed last year at the Left Bank St Germain , 1/2 block from the metro Odeon on rue de l'Ancienne Comedie - It's in a fabulous location and we're staying there again in 2 weeks. The standard doubles are small, and have wonderful baths with plenty of light and the beds are very comfortable. It's impeccable and it has a full breakfast w/ the room. (hard-boiled eggs, cold cereals, cheese, croissant and bread basket - the works! - This is all buffet) The desk is helpful, but it is without a concierge ... if that's important. It's a 3-star and this year -- we got special for a suite (larger double w/ another single in it) for 120/Euros/night including breakfast! Last yr our double cost about that much.

I would highly recommend it - The rooms facing the courtyard are the quietest.

This is a Best Western property and you can call and cancel, if necessary, a few hours before your scheduled arrival - check to see how many hours...

We are excited to be returning to Paris - and this hotel, though not special, has everything you could want. There is even a 7-11/convience store across the street if you want to pick up a soda or something.
