Here are 5 recommendations for the best 2 star hotels in Paris.
Hôtel Chopin. This is everything a Paris hotel should be. It is located amongst antique shops and quaint boutiques inside a pedestrian arcade in a lovely part of town. Good métro and bus transportation is close by. Owner Philippe Bidal’s Old World decorations of charm and grace makes this my favorite 2-star hotel. Bright, airy and surprisingly big rooms romantically gaze over the rooftops of Paris. 46, passage Jouffroy in the 9th arrondissement. Reasonable rates. Website: www.hotelchopin.fr.
Hôtel du College de France. The word “elegant” has probably never been used to describe this basic but clean, comfortable and quiet 2-star hotel in the Latin Quarter: Many travelers have given me positive reports regarding stays at the HDCDF and I can personally vouch for them. It is an excellent value and well-located. 7, rue Thénard in the Latin quarter. Website: www.hotel-collegedefrance.com.
Hôtel Saint Pierre. In the 6th arrondissement at 4, rue de l'École de Médecine. 2-star. Management recently spared all expense in renovating one of the best located hotels in the city. Designed for frugal travelers, it is clean, comfortable, and quiet. Give my regards to my friend Mhamed at the front desk when asking for room #5 when reserving. Website: www.saintpierre-hotel.com.
Hôtel Emile. 2 stars. A chic hotel with smallish rooms in the Marais close to the St. Paul métro. Rooms are a good value in the 135-175 euro range. 2, Rue Mahler, 4th arrondissement. Website: www.hotelemile.com.
Grand Balcons: An old favorite of The Traveling Professor, this is the best 2 star hotel in Paris. This is where The Traveling Professor's small group tours for Paris stays. It is perfectly located in the Latin Quarter in the Odeon section. Good restaurants are in the neighborhood as well as good transportation connections. The hotel is meticulously clean and comfortable. It has a perfect Parisian ambience and the staff is helpful and friend. Website: www.balcons.com.
