For the past 15 years that we gone to Paris France we always stay at the Grand Hotel Leveque on Rue Cler in the 7th arr. We discovered this hotel through Rick Steves Back Road books. The Grand Leveque is on a quaint street that is blocked off to through traffic. Lots of little shops and near two metro lines. Even though it is only a 2 star hotel, the rooms are comfortable and the staff is always helpful. Through out the years we've stayed at various hotels in Paris from a 5 star to 1 star, but we've always come back to the Leveque.
