I'm looking at renting a studio apartment in Place Sainte Catherine, which is closed to traffic. I know it's in the Marais near St. Paul metro on Rue d'Ormesson. My dates are in May.
Does anyone have experience staying at hotels or apartments in this square? If so, what were your impressions of it in general and as a base for exploring Paris? I'd like to stay near good areas for food shopping and dining, but not too touristy.
I want to check out Place des Vosges for sure, but I haven't made an itinerary. I did see most of the big touristy things on my first visit.
