nice hotel in paris
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was beautifull and the breakfast was really complete! from croissants, pain au chocolat, cafe au lait, the, yoghurt, cereals and other stuffs
Hotel staff was polite and really helpfull even though some of them didn't speak english.
I will for sure return to this hotel if I return to Paris
Unique Quality: nice decorated and confortable room
the bathroom had a bathtub
our room had view to the entrance of the jardin de plantes
2 blocks from metro station jusieu
Quiet and close to Quartier Latin.
This is a nice hotel located across the street from le Jadin des Plantes (the botanical garden of Paris - has a small zoo in it). The area is quiet and yet allows for easy access to the Latin Quarter, just a few minutes away by foot.
The rooms are spacious and have TV's and decent bathrooms. All rooms have Air Conditionning, which during the last few Paris summers is a must have. Rates range from 70 to 100 euros per night and up.
The lobby will look great once renovations are done (as of Aug 2006). The current work isn't messy at all so it's not a reason to skip this hotel.
Located near Gare d'Austerlitz, Notre Dame Batobus stop, and Place Monge and Jussieu metro stations. The hotel is 2-3 mins walk away from Mouffetard and the rest of the Latin Quater.
I would stay here again.
Unique Quality: Really nice roof top terrace on the fifth floor.

Muslim areas in Paris
Hi! Need some advice on the best area (and hotels) to be staying at in Paris, where there is a sizeable Muslim population, many Muslim restaurants and mosques, etc. Thanks heaps.
RE: Muslim areas in Paris
You'll want to stay in the 5th (Latin Quarter) where there is the Mosquée and the Institut du Monde Arabe (1 r Fossés St Bernard) which are on the east side of the Latin Quarter. The Jardin des Plantes lies between the 2 so you may want to stay at the Timhotel Jardin des Plantes which is just across one of the entrances to the garden/park (this park has a zoo, too, btw) and is pretty much equidistant between the 2 Arab/Muslim attractions.
Also, this area has an abundance of couscous restaurants. Two I've tried is inside the Hôtel les Degrés de Notre Dame (10 rue des Grands Degrés), my favorite couscous restaurant and also my favorite restaurant in Paris; run by a wonderful Algerian gentleman:
and La Couscoussiere (83 rue du Cardinal Lemoine), which is near the Place de la Contrescarpe:
(click next to see the next 3 photos which includes my lunch there last February)
You'll also find falafel places in the Marais in or around rue des Rosiers.
But to be honest, I think the "sizeable Muslim population" resides in the eastern section of Paris and on the outskirts.
Have a great time in Paris!
