Here are The Traveling Professor's picks for 2-star hotels in Paris.  2-star hotels don't always have A/C, so be careful traveling in the warmer months.  However, these hotels are well-located, clean, comfortable and quiet.

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.

New Orient Hôtel. A 2-star find with A/C near the St. Lazare train station.  Everyone I have sent here has nothing but good things to say about it.  The price is right with most rooms under €150 per night. 16, rue de Constantinople; 8th arrondissement.  Website:  www.hotel-paris-orient.com.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.
