We decided to save a little money on this trip by booking in a 3 star hotel instead of a 4 star hotel. Well, to our surprise, the New Orient Hotel was a great choice. The owners, Catherine and Josef were delightful, so nice, spoke great English, and were so helpful in directing us to restaurants, getting a taxi to the airport, etc. The rest of the hotel staff were equally as pleasant. The room was small, as you would expect, but spotlessly clean. The bed and pillows were so comfortable, I slept like a baby. For 9 Euros per person you can have a continental breakfast with homemade breads/muffins, fresh squeezed orange juice, and coffee. They also offer a full breakfast for 13 Euros. We had the continental breakfast every morning because frankly, it was a bargain compared to other breakfast places, and we saved our appetite for the dinners in Paris. The hotel has free WiFi in the rooms, and a computer in the lobby. They will print your boarding passes for you as well. They have an elevator that stops in between the floors so you have to climb up or down some stairs. Don't bring a heavy suitcase or you may have trouble! The hotel is conveniently located in the 8th arr., and a short walk to 2 Metro stops. There's a street nearby that has markets, cheese shops, boulangeries, flower and wine shops. Lots of cafes and bistros are in the area as well. We can't wait to return.
