    I LOVE this place. I stay at the Hotel des Arenes everytime I go to Paris. The Rue Monge is a quiet old world neighborhood street that fronts a Roman Ampitheater. The best chocolate/pastry/sandwich shoppe in Paris is just down the street from des Arenes. Across from there is a woderful coffee shop. There are 2 Metro stops in very easy walking distance and there is a small grocery across the street. There is a Pharmacy on the corner. The location is wonderful! As for the Staff? Well, the only complaint I can think to make is that they try too hard. The manager on the premises the times I have been is a gregarious man who speaks English and can be a tad pushy when it comes to tours. However, every need you have will be met and it is met quickly and efficiently.

    Unique Quality: Every Window has a great view of either the street or the Arena. The Hotel is very intimate and has a wonderful atmosphere.

Vth - Bull-rings in Paris ?

by Maillekeukeul

Former bull-rings exist in Paris, so that you may contemplate its architecture. Now, they just constitute a classic part of a park... To be found "rue des Arenes"...

Arenes de Lutece. Rue de Navarre 5th.

by pfsmalo

Along with the thermal baths of Cluny the "Arenes de Lutece" are the only visible signs of the Romans passing in Paris. Built in the 1st century A.D. it was made to contain around 15000 people. The arena was destroyed in the IIIrd century and rebuilt around 300 years later. Whilst there have been citations of the arena during the centuries it seems to have been lost from view around1700 and only rediscovered in 1860/69 after rue Monge was built. Work for a new bus depot uncovered even more and it took a letter from Victor Hugo, in 1883, to the President of the city council, to alert the authorities of the possible destruction of the cities heritage. Work was stopped and the council bought the land, shortly after classing it as a historic monument. Unfortunately the buidings on rue Monge had already destroyed a part of the arena. Today there is a lovely small garden attached to the arena dedicated in the name of, Square René-Capitan, the anthropologist who did a lot of work here in the early 20th century,and who actually discovered a skeleton under all the earth, 2m10 tall!!!! Arena and garden open every day and entrance is free. It is no longer possible to enter the arena by rue Monge, only entrance is by the rue de Navarre and the garden or rue des Arenes.

UPDATE at 11.01.2010 - The entrance at no. 49 rue Monge has been re-opened following conservation work.(see photo below)

Metros Monge, Jussieu and Cardinal-Lemoine are the closest.

I have stayed and enjoyed the Hotel Therese which is close to both the Louvre and the Opera. The rooms are newly decorated and charming. I loved that it was on a quiet street but close to the site, etc. The list price for a basic room with shower is 143 EU but it appears that they do promotions on their website and you may be able to find something from a consolidator too.

I think Hotel Des Mines at Boulevard Saint Michel is a good option.

We always use this hotel :Hotel du 7e Art
20 rue St Paul

It's 90 euro a night in a great location. The rooms are small but they are clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a real little gem.
