My friend Cynthia absolutely loves this hotel, and it does have that certain “historic Paris” look with the exposed wooden beams and tiled floors. Bare bones budget means no elevator or A/C, but for €85-€90 you get a room for two and breakfast. Located near the Odéon station, right at the end of the Passage St-André-des-Arts (and a block from an excellent Internet café).

I first stayed in this hotel almost 35 years ago. In dozens of trips to Paris, the most recent in March 2006, I have returned here.

I love it today, with its warmth and conviviality, as much as I did when, ascending the stairs for the first time so many years ago, a newcomer to Paris, I heard a chambermaid softly humming "La Vie en Rose" to herself as she went about her work. That moment is forever etched in my mind as part of the essence of Paris.

I adore the Hotel St-André-des-Arts.
