Subject: Re: Affordable Paris Hotels over Xmas
Hi George,

I looked in the book Hotels of Character and Charm in Paris: http://www.hotels-de-charme.com/?lang=EN and their listing of hotels with lower rates includes:

Grand Hotel Jeanne d'Arc (in Marais, close to Places des Vosges) 3, rue de Jarente 75004 Phone: 01 48 87 62 11

Hotel des Trois Collegès (right off Bd. Saint Michel) 16, rue Cujas 75006 http://www.3colleges.com/ Phone: 01 43 54 67 30

Familia Hotel (past the rue Monge) 11, rue des Ècoles 75005 http://familiahotel.com/ Phone: 01 43 54 55 27

Grand Hotel des Balcons (looks close to Place de l'Odeon) 3, rue Casimir-Delavigne 75006 Phone: 01 46 34 78 50

I've heard good things about all of these hotels, and you can

check them and other hotels out on Trip Advisor: http://www.tripadvisor.com/

Also, check the location out on Les Pages Jaunes: http://www.pagesjaunes.fr/pj.cgi

Hope this helps... good luck! :-)
