Now, we have 3 accomodation options and I would highly appreciate your help on choosing the correct one. All 3 are fairly the same in terms of offer (price, quality, etc) so it's all down to area. The closest metro stations for those 3 are: Mercadet Poissonieres or Chateau d'Eau/Strasbourg Saint Denis or Jaures/Colonel Fabien.
I have been to Paris before but it's a first for my partners so we will be going around the main sights. And based on that I would like to stay in the area where connections are the best for going around Paris as well as area that's relatively safe and slightly lively (we are in late thirties and having a no-kids getaway) :-)
My partner also discovered an option of traveling around Paris with city bikes, would you recommend that as an option as well ?
Thanks a lot for your help.
