1st arrondissement (Louvre-Halles)

Hotel de Lille, 8 rue du Pelican, tel 0142333342.
Just across the River Seine from the Louvre, this hotel is also very well located for exploring the Latin Quarter and the Ile de la Cite. Small hotel of 14 rooms, a little old but clean, and well maintained. Doubles with sink go for 38 €, with shower 46 €. No breakfast but ideal for very small budgets. The rooms are more simply done with bamboo or wood furniture.

Hotel Henri IV, 25, place Dauphine, tel 0143544453.
The Hotel Henri IV an amazing hotel. The rooms are exceptionally cheap (one of the three cheapest I know) and its location, on the Place Dauphine on the Ile de la Cite, is ideal.
An old house dating 400 years, small obsolete but charming. The family goes out of its way to make you feel at home. The hotel provides 22 cool old rooms, none of which have toilets, but some of which are equipped with showers. The ceilings go way up, rooms on the front have huge balconied windows that look down on the Place Dauphine, and the furniture is simple (a few retro pieces), resting on gorgeous hardwood floors. No credit cards, free breakfast. Reservation in advance strongly advised. Doubles for 20 € with lavabo and 43 € with shower.

Hotel de la Vallee, 84-86 rue St.Denis, tel 0142364699. In the heart of the Halles area, and the…sex shops area!  Difficult to find cheaper in the area. Rooms with shower only 34 €, shower and WC 45 Euros . Breakfast € Euros. If you want quiet rooms ask for the ones on the courtyard, or at the higher floors. Rooms are payable in advance !

3rd arrondissement (Northern Marais-Temple)

Hotel du Marais, 16 rue de Beauce tel 0142723026
One of the best deals in the Marais with small but well-kept rooms with washbasin. It's above the bistro of the same name, so handy for breakfast. Really inexpensive place Very simple comfort and doubles for the budget travellers, 28 €! Don't expect a palace of course. 

Hotel de Bretagne, 87 rue des Archives tel 0148878314 Pretenseless small hotel with 7 rooms, clean and quiet especially those on the inner courtyard with double glassing.
Advantage is the proximity of the place de la Republique with its cafes and restaurants. Single for 47 €, double with shower and WC for 56,70 € . Room with only bed and wash basin 31-34 €.

Hotel Picard, 26, rue de Picardie, tel 0148875382 Fax 01 48870256
Quiet street, English speaking and close to the bustling rue de Bretagne. They also speak Russian, Polish or Spanish.

Paris-Bruxelles Hotel, 4, rue Meslay. tel 0142727132 Fax 01 42776233
Classic and anonymous,  in a street of cobblers' workshops, near the place de la Republique. Rooms with a view on the top floor. Doubles with shower, WC, teleph and TV for 45 to 72 Euros.

4th arrondissement ( Marais)

Hotel Pratic,  9 rue d’Ormesson tel 0148878047  Fax 01 48874004
Ultra-cheap sleeping in the heart of the Marais. The charming 28-room hotel, situated at the base of the Marche St. Catherine. Built in the 19th Century, the hotel retains some of the old Marais style in its lovely wood-beamed lobby, but the rest of the hotel is thoroughly modern and fresh. Good base from which to explore the Marais. Charmingly cramped bathrooms and modestly furnished 'suites' add to its character New wallpapers, carpets, fixtures and furniture fill the clean rooms, all of which are equipped with telephones. (The hotel almost reached the two-star status, but was held back as it isn't equipped with an elevator.) Rooms on the Marche St. Catherine are some of the most romantic I have seen in Paris. Prices around the 45 Euros-50 Euros

Grand Hotel du Loiret, 8 rue des Mauvais Garcons, tel 0148877700.
Small but tall, situated across the street from the Hotel de Ville in the center of the Marais, it calls itself 'grand' but something of an overstatement as this modest hotel is in the aptly named street of naughty boys. Small rooms, but those on the 5th and 6th floors have been renovated. All the renovated with telephone, TV, and windows to the street. The prices are low because the hotel doesn't have an elevator. This small fact (it may not seem so trivial when you're lugging your bags up six flights of stairs) keeps the rates down and keeps the cheapos coming. its seven floors provide only 28 rooms. The seventh floor rewards the climbers with romantic sloped ceilings and amazing views out to the Hotel de Ville and central Paris. Book well in advance, as the rooms go fast. Prices 35 Eur for a single, 40 for a double and 75 Euros for a triple. 

Castex Hotel, 5 rue Castex tel: 01 42 72 31 52 fax: 01 42 72 57 91
Despite it is a budget hotel , the Castex is perfectly charming, well-situated south of rue St-Antoine in the Marais, and a perfect two-star bargain. Renovated a few years ago, the hotel offers clean rooms with brand new private bath (spotless). It's too bad that they had to go and put in drop ceilings in the rooms (and I’m not crazy about the light-bar above the bed), but come on, this place is a steal. No TV in the rooms but all have phone. Single costs 40-47 Euros, double 52-60 Euros and a triple 66-75 Euros.

5th arrondissement (Quartier Latin)

Hotel Port-Royal, 8 boulevard du Port Royal tel 0143317006 fax 0143313367
Familial hotel with well cared decoration. Tv only in certain rooms, and the airco is oinly in the rooms on the ground floor, a pretty patio for breakfast in the summer.Single rooms for 30 Euro (without shower), doubles with sink 48 Euros no shower. With shower and toilets 58 Euros.

Hotel Central, 6, rue Descartes tel 0146335793-Metro Maubert Mutualitι, about 10 min walk to RER station Saint Michel Notre Dame.
Very inexpensive place, not a palace of course, but simple and clean. My friend David Gascon recommends it for people who want it really cheap. Let's say, being optimistic, it is of a modest comfort. The Central is a paradise for the big cheapies out there. The funky little hotel offers 16 simple rooms, all of which come equipped with shower, and none of which has a private toilet. (toilets are shared by each floor) Rooms on the street run a bit more, but offer picturesque views toward the Pantheon and of the cafι scene on the square below. Doubles, 35 to 40 Euros (no toilet) 

Hotel Andrea, rue saint Bon tel 0142784393 fax 0144612836

6th arrondissement(Saint-Germain)

Hotel de Nesle, 7, rue de Nesle tel 0143546241
Hidden in a small street, a few steps from Place Dauphine, this hotel fools a lot of people. It is inexpensive, full of atmosphere, charming, especially the flourished patio. No reservations, so you can get a room on the day. You enter a different world in the Hτtel de Nesle's reception, where the ceiling is covered with hanging dried flowers and the walls with copper utensils. Mostly Anglo-Saxon clientele. It used to be quite hippy, but  now the spotless hotel is more hip than hippy. The beds are small, so you'll have to cuddle up. There are no mod cons - no lift, television, phone or breakfast, and half the rooms share a bathroom with one other room. Each of the 26 rooms has a different, but equally quirky wall mural depicting a scene in Paris history. No credit cards, no breakfast. Count a double for 45-50 Euros.
