|Subject: Re: Paris 3 star hotels|
The Ibis Hotel chain is certainly has a good reputation for a budget chain, especially if you can find one in a location you like. Personally, they're not my style, but I do know many people who stay there and find them perfectly acceptable.
However, I have to disagree with the sentiment that all hotels with character have uncomfortable beds and small rooms. (though I'll agree that the rooms are never huge in the 3 star hotels of Paris)
