Hotel a Paris?

I'm spending two days in Paris soon, and need a place to stay.

I have been before, and stayed just down the street from Laduree. This time I'm hoping to see the catacombs, Montmartre, and eat some good food.

Looking for, specifically, hotel recommendations with good Metro access to those spots. For Reasons, I'd rather not AirBnB. I'd love to stay at a smaller boutique place with some good food options nearby; maybe Le Marais? It's hard to guess from a map, so I thought I'd ask here!

My favorite boutique hotel in Paris is Hôtel Le Littré.

It's in the 6th, about a 5 minute walk from two Metro lines and the Gare Montparnasse train complex. You can get nearly everywhere you want pretty quickly from there. The hotel is tucked between two boulevards so there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The Luxembourg Gardens are also a short walk away.

Littré has great amenities including solid WiFi and free breakfast, and if you want to splurge they have upstairs rooms with balconies that look over the city rooftops.

My favorite boutique hotel in Paris is the Hotel de Buci in St. Germain. Just a few minutes walk from Metro stations, great street life, wonderful neighborhood.

I love the Hotel des Academies et des Arts at 15 Rue de la Grande Chaumière in the 6th.

I recently stayed at My Hotel in the Marais. Rooms are basic and tiny but clean and comfy and it's a stone's throw from the nearest metro.

We really liked Hidden Hotel (and it's decently priced), especially as our room had a balcony. It's not in Le Marais, but it is near a metro station and we found it very conveniently located.

Check out the Messy Nessy Chic blog. She's based in Paris and has lots of info on hotels, food, etc.

Le Littre etait parfait! Merci beaucoup. They are a hidden gem.

Bonus points: Le Petit Littre, the restaurant across the street - just wonderful.
