We are visiting Paris for 5 days in mid-September but don't yet have a place to stay. We'd like to find something unique, central to the city, friendly, and affordable (<$100/night). Any recommendations?

My girlfriend and I are visiting Paris next month and have very little time to plan. We have our airline tickets in hand but not much beyond that. Neither of us have been to Paris for over 10 years. We don't want to plan a series of major sight seeing activities but rather intend to spend most of our days just wandering the city on foot, with not particular direction in mind. We've found a number of recommendations to see the sewers and catacombs and may check that out. While we are confident that our no-plan plan will be a nice experience we have no idea where to stay. We're concerned that with our lack of time to plan at this point we'll be paying too much for too little. While we don't mind the hostel crowd, we've both done plenty of that around the world and would prefer to have a bit more privacy. If anyone has recent recommendations on where to stay (or any tips on Paris in general) we'd be much obliged.
