Hotel La Serre

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by metrogirl on June 16, 2004

Due to Hotel LaSerre's location in the village-like area of rue Cler, it also becomes "your neighborhood" after a very short time. When I first stayed here five years ago, this hotel was quite tacky, though clean. Since then, all the rooms have been somewhat tastefully remodeled in 2002, so it has become quite popular. It is still not sumptuous, but it is still clean, friendly, inexpensive, and very safe.

The cost is 65-80 euros during the low season for a single room, and 110 euros during the high season, with peteit dejuneur €6 extra. The elevator goes to all seven levels. Most rooms have a street-side view, which I love because you can people watch and observe all the daily activities below while you’re resting from sightseeing.

It can be a bit noisy for light sleepers because the market opens early, but I enjoyed just lying in bed and listening to the song of the fruit-sellers singing the praises of their most wonderful strawberries. The rooms on the other side are very quiet, and some of them have a view of the Eiffel Tower, which is quite romantic at night.
