low priced (which in Paris is around 40-60 Euro for a single room) with
friendly staff and decent rooms. Also note that they (like many other)
serve white bread, coffee and juice for breakfast, so if you need something
a little more substantial then bring your own additions.
Online hotel guide:
Unless you and your stomach are used to "city water" I would
definitely recommend only drinking bottled or filtered water.
Metro and bus tickets:
Tickets for bus and metro are the same and you save some Euros if you
buy un carnet (10 tickets) at one of the metro stops.
These are accepted most places but many have a minimum purchase requirement
with is usually 15-20 Euros.
This is a city of rain. All year! --- Yes, of course, there are days
of sunshine and it does get warm in the summer, but there are many days
with short or long showers.
