Tel 01 45 48 02 81.
Close to St-Sulpice, this is a surprisingly charming budget hotel with a cobblestone courtyard, a cheerful reception area decorated in French country-style blue and yellow fabrics, and 34 rooms with newly-remodelled bathrooms. Some rooms on the top floor even have their own little terrace balcony. Doubles are €180-€200. Reserve early! No A/C, some pets allowed.
The Regent’s prices have gone up to 180 minimum…FYI.
