Here are The Traveling Professor's picks for 2-star hotels in Paris.  Be careful, some do not have air conditioning which is no problem outside of the summer months.

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.  It is my top pick.

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 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.
