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.
