My husband is going to have a business trip in Paris on 2nd April. Then we'll have 4 days left visit this romantic city. Because it's our both first time to be there, we wonder which stay is the most convenient for Paris exploration. Can you give us some recommendations for the best hotel with sufficient services surrounded by local attractions in Paris. Many thanks!

Ok: I think we've got a two part question here.

1. What is the best hotel you know about?

2. What is the best location?

1. I can't help you much with that because Paris is full of good hotels, most of which are expensive to very expensive (80-200 per night) and always seem cramped.

2. The place to be is anywhere in central paris, and never the suburbs.

Central Paris has a great transport system, and its easy to get anywhere.

Preferred places:

Center(arc de triumph, eiffel tower) is very good
Montmartre is very cute and cozy, on a hill. You can't beat it.

I am just back from Paris, having met up with a Bootsnall buddy (Helga the Viking) from 10+ years ago, which was a nice BnA flashback!

We stayed in an airbnb flat, as had my sister and mom when they were in Paris last year. I highly recommend using You can't beat the prices and options available to you in Paris and it will feel more personal. That said, a hotel which I really enjoyed was:

Very small rooms, but lush and sexy.

As for area, on both of my last 2 trips I inadvertently stayed both times in the 3rd arrondissement. It's not heaving with hotels, but you can get just about everywhere because it's close to Republique metro. Everything is really walkable. A little hidden gem was a local market on a Saturday AM called the Marche des Enfants Rouges.

Have fun and eat your way through Paris!
