Here is a little FYI on 'where to stay'

BOOKING TIP: Paris may be the most visited city in the world but each day we're surprised to hear guests think districts outside the 1st/2nd arrondissements are NOT Paris.
Sure the main sights are there (though not all, or most) but when a city is so cosily made up of 20 neighbourhoods that all mesh into one another so easily like one big village, taking 5-15mins to reach the centre, why wouldn't you stay somewhere more authentic, tranquil & local without the crowds?!
Especially as every village is a little Paris within Paris with its own beautiful bustling cafe-life, bars, restaurants, boulangeries, gardens, museums. If anything these areas are MORE Parisian.

So the moral of the story, the best of Paris is NOT the 1st dear travellers & all 20 districts ARE PARIS! (NY is 789Km2, Paris is 105km - trust me, you are in Paris :)
