Maps and Hotels in Paris
This text has been prepared for the WWW5 Workshop on Virtual Environments and the WWW workshop. I am not a tourist
office so if some bloody search engine spits out this page don't send me
email about missing information :). Will take only comments from workshop
Conference Hotels are mostly expensive but are quality. Most of them
are not downtown Paris. Book with them
if you get the funding or/and if you don't plan to see Paris by night.
Else get something downtown and sleep in a bad
bed, but have fun after the conference. Cheap hotels are below
300FF/night (about $60). You can get below 200FF if you hunt some.
Still cheaper, you can consider going
to a Hostel
(about 100 to 120FF/night). They are ok, just check opening hours and
"lock out" periods.
You need to know the following:
Note: right bank (except 3e and 4e) is supposed to be
right wing and bourgeois, left bank supposed to be left-wing and bohemian:).
Tho that ain't really true. All Paris has become pretty chic except
for some little place left.
Either find a hotel yourself and call it up or use the services
Totally random pick of Hotels in probably good locations
(I'd go for one in 6e, 4e or 1er arrondissement).
- 1er arrond: ROUEN(de) --
VALLEE(De la) in famous Rue St-Denis where love is for sale.
- 6e arrond:
SAINT ANDRE DES ARTS (in quartier latin, very good location near
Odeon, noisy but nice, would be my pick, i.e. court room) ---
DELHY's (Good location near quartier Latin, near RER, but don't know it).
- 5e arrond: ALLIES (Des) (somewhat further away, but cheap (135-295FF) and close to the blue RER #B line (change in Les Halles)). --
LUSSAC, 5e similar as ALIIES, but walking distance to quartier Latin.
- Again, consider checking out the Foyers and Hostels page.
- Now, if you travel on high budget go for the Novotel in
the > 700FF list.
