I am going to be in Paris with a friend of mine Friday-Monday in October, and am trying to decide what neighborhood I should book a hotel in.
Here a few details:
-2 23-year old males
-going to see all the major tourist stuff (Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Versailles, etc.)
-going to drink at bars/clubs at least 2 of the nights (suggestions?)
-$200/night MAXIMUM on a hotel/apartment (total, $100 per person)
-I speak French fine
I am looking for opinions. Is it better to stay near the sight-seeing stuff, like right near the Eiffel Tower, or is it not too big of a deal to take the metro there in the daytime? Is it better to stay in the Latin Quarter, near the club scene, somewhere else? Is there anything super-cool we should make sure we do while we are there?
Any thoughts and/or experiences are much appreciated!
