Republique area

by worshik

Hi Friends,

I have an option to stay in Tim Hotel Invalides ( for EUR 110) and in Hotel Paris France ( EUR 88) both with breakfast.

As a tourist, which place is better.I heard both are near to metros.


Re: Republique area


Almost every places in Paris is close to a Metro.

TIMHOTEL Invalides is located near the Museum of Invalides and the River Seine. It is a wealthy area. The metro station is Latour-Maubourg on line 8.

I do not find Hotel Paris France on the Yellow Pages. It must have an other name.
If it is located near Place de la Republique, the choice is easy. This area can be unsafe by night in some streets.

So I suggest the first one but you must be conscious both are not centrally located.

Have a good stay

Thank Ray,

Can u please tell me which area is centrally located and safe.

Re: Re: Republique area


The center of Paris is place du Chatelet 4e arrondissement :
1/ at the insection of Blvd Sebastopol and Rue de Rivoli / Quais de Seine, and the Gateway of Left Bank and quartier Latin as well as the Ile de la Cite
2/ at the intersection of the major RER (express metro) lines (A, B, D) and Metro Lines (1, 4, 5, 11).
That means you are close to everything in Paris. And the area is safe.

The only hotels I know close to Place du Chatelet are rue Victoria (hotel Britannique and hotel Victoria Chatelet, both 3 stars).

So you can extend your search to Le Marais (4e), Les Halles (4e but the area around the mall Forum des Halles can be unsafe), Ile St Louis (4e), Quartier latin (5e), St Germain des Pres (6e).

To Consider : the price is not directly linked with the area but with the category and the comfort. So you can find budget hotels in the center (example : Hotel Henri IV which is on Ile de la Cite, place Dauphine, near the Pont Neuf, but it has no website because it is not usefull for it : it is full the year round thanks to its fame).

Timhotel Invalides is a very good choice in my opinion..Invalides area is good area because it is from very easy access to a great number of things to see in Paris or by metro or by bus...and the location is safe by night!!! Have you look at the website of the Hotel or just have heard of them (

Hotel de Nevers and Republique Hotel Opinions?

by terik

We're thinking of staying at either the Hotel de Nevers (in 11e, not 7e) or the Repulique Hotel. Has anyone stayed at either of these who can give me their opinion of these places? Also, I've heard the Place de la Republique area is unsafe. Just how unsafe is it?

Re: Hotel de Nevers and Republique Hotel Opinions?

by terik

The Republique Hotel we were looking at was only a 2 star hotel. The website is: Looks OK, but sometimes websites can be deceiving, so I wondered if anyone had first hand accounts. The Hotel de Nevers' website is more cryptic, so opinions on that one are more than welcome, too. Thanks!

Re: Hotel de Nevers and Republique Hotel Opinions?

I stayed at Hotel Paris France (a two-star) in October. It is right off of Republique. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and had everything I needed for my stay.

I would come and go at night and I felt perfectly safe. Of course, this hotel is right off of the main road, so it's not like I had to walk far away from the Metro. There's not a whole lot to do at night right around the hotel (I would take the metro to Champs Elysees or the Latin Quarter), but I didn't feel that it was in any way out of the way from the major attractions. Paris is such a compact city, nothing is too far away (by Metro).
The last time I went to Paris, I stayed near Montparnasse. It was a little more convenient than Republique, but not overly so.

Re: Hotel de Nevers and Republique Hotel Opinions?


There is few to do and to see near place de la Republique, especially at night.
I suggest more centraly located hotels which are not more expensive.
The North part of place de la Republique (where there is the Holiday Inn) has no problem of safety. But the opposite side of the place is frequented by some bunches of shady guys.

Some 2 stars of the 4° or 5° arrondissements are located in pleasant areas and they are not expensive.

Re: Hotel de Nevers and Republique Hotel Opinions?

by terik

Any specific recommendations of 2 star hotels in the 4th & 5th for around the 50 euro price that you know of? We're looking for doubles w/ shower & toilet for around that price (or slightly more would be acceptable). Thanks.

Re: Hotel de Nevers and Republique Hotel Opinions?


A friend of mine was at the Hotel St André des Arts - 66 rue St Andre des Arts (6° arrondissement but close to the 5° ).
The price was 54€ .
The area is pleasant; not far from the carrefour de Buci which is a nightlife place of Paris.

Never stay at the Hotel De Nevers in the 11th... we had money stolen from our locked room. No one broke in, a key was used and the only man working was the man at the front desk who knew we were at the hotel across the street (that they are affiliated with) for dinner. When we told the manager he said, my partner had probably stolen my money.

Terrible hotel and staff.

Travel Tips for Paris

When you ring ...

by shrimp56

... he sings -- a sundial on the side of a Montmartre house just down the hill from Sacre Coeur. Obviously a reference to a rooster's propensity for early morning crowing ... In any neighborhood in Paris looking at the details is important.

Music in Metro

by solopes

It's not exactly a local custom, more an universal custom in a local flavour.

In all the Metro lines in the world it is common to see someone playing guitar or accordion or any other light instrument. But a full camera orchestra... only in Paris!


by thinking

Newcomers to the EU often have fantasies about their former Sunday mornings spent surrounded by a pile of newspapers and quietly sipping coffee. Perhaps they’d indulge in a leisurely breakfast comprised of eggs, pancakes or cereal before their real day began. Sunday was the day of the “fat” paper before many of the supplements were delivered on Saturdays. But it’s simply not that way in France. If you crave big Sunday newspapers, you’ll have to buy ones that are published in the U.K.

French families traditionally join together at Sunday lunch and major papers aren’t published. Lunch is a ritual that’s less frequent now, as family members are more mobile and settling in other areas to pursue jobs or educational opportunities. But Sundays still have a special meaning in France; for most, it’s a day of rest, reflection and preparing for the upcoming week. Some people attend church. The majority don’t.

In the US, people often spend Sundays shuttling children from here to there. It’s amazing how many sports and other events take place on the alleged “day of rest.” Many parents complain of their status of being non-stop chauffeurs in addition to an always enthusiastic cheering squad. Recent expats tend to carry on this tradition since it’s an acquired habit.

Contrasted with the French, many Americans maximize their Sundays by doing the week’s shopping. It’s the norm for stores to be open rather than closed. The weekend (both Saturday and Sunday) represents a huge percentage of the week’s sales for clerks totaling up at cash registers nationwide. Shopping centers in the US have taken on an entirely new meaning, form and function since the days when I was young. Parents and offspring go their separate ways, and kids hang out and socialize while their parents hit the stores.

An Ancient Passageway


One afternoon after walking up rue de l' Ancienne Comedie to the intersection of Blvd. St. Germain, I turned left on the boulevard. Just around the corner I spied an ancient cobbled walkway with shops and restaurants. This is the Cour du Commerce-St.-Andre. It is the oldest (circa 1776, as old as the US) passage in Paris, older than the other passages-covered with glass and steel-such as Galerie Vivienne and Galerie Colbert to name a couple of them.

Cour du Commerce-St.-Andre is so old that the cobblestones are huge and very misshapened due to the passage of time. In many cases the stones are so worn that there are huge gaps in between them. Be really careful how you step as they can cause you to trip.

The passageway is both famous and infamous. Halfway down the passageway and to one side of it is the Cour (Courtyard) de Rohan, part of which is the site where Dr. Guillotin, inventor of the guillotine, would practice on sheep before using it for real on humans. And if you continue straight down the passageway to your left you will find the rear entrance to Le Procope, Paris's oldest cafe. Benjamin Franklin, Balzac, Victor Hugo, and Oscar Wilde were some former clientele of the cafe.
