More about Hotel Picard

Hotel Moderne and Hotel Picard

by Chasinraynbowz

The Hotel Moderne in St Germaine de Pres (3 star) was what we expected. Small rooms, but very clean and 'ensuite'!!. It is in a great location, walking distance to the islands and Notre Dame as well as the metro and some great food! Rates are normally about $130 euros per night, but we had a great deal for $80.

The Hotel Picard (2 star hotel) in Place de la Republic was not what we expected, a bit older than we thought, but very clean. They were in the midst of renovations and painting. It was very quaint and well within our budget (cost us $63 euros a night). One piece of advise though, ask for a room on the back side. There was a bar right below our window and people were there till all hours of the night laughing and talking. Also, if you make reservations, FOLLOW UP. We got there and they could not find our reservations. While waiting, 2 other groups showed up and had the same problem. Both 'hotels' were unique in their own way. Both had facilities in the rooms (which was what we had looked for) and both were in great locations to the metro and dining.

Walls were fairly 'thin' at the Hotel Moderne and we could hear our neighbors. Not so at the Picard, but we could hear the bar downstairs half the night.

Safe are in Marais

by orangejuice

Hello,

I wondered if anyone knows how safe the area in the Marais is at night? Specifically, Hotel Picard on Rue de Picardie (between Rue de Bretagne and Bd du Temple) close to Metro Republique? As I will spend most of the time walking, I wonder how safe it is especially at night.

Also, does the metro run 24hrs a day?

Thank you!

I stayed once in that area (on Bd. du Temple) and it's fine. It does get a little quiet in the evening in parts of the marais but there are cafes and bars open late near Republique so there are always people around.

I think the metro stops running from about 1am to 5am - not certain of these times though. have a good trip.

Paris in general is a safe city.
Marais is quite touristiuc place, so no worries.
When I was there, metro stopped at midnight.
Don't know when it opens cause I never get up SO early :)))

Central Paris is safe. You need to be careful of pickpockets as usual, but no major concern here. Marais is a really trendy place. Only well off Parisians live then. Republique is great, close to TATI shop. Very busy place.

Enjoy Paris and unless you are venture into some scary suburbs, you will be safe!

Hi,

The Marais and generally speaking the whole 3eme arrondissement is considered very safe; still, you should beware of pickpockets (there are many in tourist areas of Paris). The Marais has become touristy because it is the gay quarter of Paris; it is also very residential, which is why it is safer than other areas.

There is also a Police Station at the corner of Rue Pérée and Rue de la Picardie, so you should be more than safe!

The Metro doesn't run at night, but there are always late buses and taxis. For all your transport needs, you should consult www.ratp.fr who operate Paris' transportation systems.

Bienvenue á Paris!

On the RATP website you will find the bus lines which run during the night to replace metro and day buses.

Thanks so much or all your responses! You make VT such a great place!

The Marais is probably one of the safest place within Paris (Police statistics confirm this position) and you don't have to be worried about that, even by night: just enjoy your time there.
As regards transportation, you can walk by foot most of the time. I live close to this area (in the 2nd disctrict to be more precise) and I only walk by foot during the week end.
It is probably one of the most tremendous areas in Paris, very close to other places of interest.
Bon voyage!
