A budget classic, these simple lodgings cater to travelers looking for reasonable, centrally located lodgings, who don’t mind a little noise in the hallways. Not only is the price right, but extras include free washing machines and kitchen access and a ton of sightseeing tips from the friendly management. Though still pretty basic, many of the rooms have been renovated as the owner gradually upgrades the establishment. The pretty ceiling moldings have been left intact, and the newly tiled bathrooms are spotless. Room sizes range from comfortable to enormous—this is one of the few hotels in Paris to offer rooms for up to five people. The cheapest rates involve sharing a toilet and/or shower down the hall. Note: There is no elevator.
