Took my wife to Paris last weekend for her birthday. The Grand Hotel des Gobelins was perfect for our needs. Ideally situated for exploring the city, yet quieter than being in the centre of Paris. Staff were incredibly welcoming, room was of a high standard for a 3 star with a substantial continental breakfast included.
"An inexpensive Parisian hotel that's perfect for the traveler on a budget"
This is a very good hotel if you're watching how much you spend while in Paris. The staff were very helpful, and most spoke English quite well. It's only three blocks from the nearest Metro station, so no matter what you have to do in Paris, this is a good place to spend the nights. My only complaint would be that the shower was quite small (it worked perfectly, it was just very small), but given the inexpensive rates, that was a deal I was willing to accept. The room itself was pretty small too, but if all you need from your hotel room is a bed, a desk, and a bathroom, that's not a problem. Also, the free wifi was pretty fast by hotel internet standards. So if you want an inexpensive room in Paris, and aren't looking for luxuries, I'd definitely recommend this Timhotel.
The staff is wonderful, very helpful and attentive to details. The room was clean, comfortable, and decorated in a unique style that is both understated and yet bold in choices of furniture and colors. We had a distant view of the Eiffel Tower, and from our corner room we had three distinct views of the boulevard and neighborhood. The neighborhood is charming, with shops, bakeries and many sidewalk cafes. With the windows open, we were part of the sights and sounds of the area, but with the windows closed, the room was very quiet. The hotel is within walking distance of all forms of transportation, including boats on the Seine.

Just footsteps from Place d'Italie Metro station, La Manufacture is a great and affordable option for a stay in central Paris. The hotel itself is compact but very clean. The staff is very friendly and all seemed to speak English very well. I recommend nearby Butte Aux Calles for some lovely, non-touristy dining options. From the nearby Metro station you can access most sights in central Paris within about 20 minutes, though walking is also an option if you have a bit more time and energy.

"A nice hotel at a quiet and convenient location."
We stayed at the hotel for four nights at the end of June 2014. The room is not big but clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to subway stations of line 5,6,7, a very convenient location. Staffs are very helpful and speak English.
