We stayed in the Welcome Hotel in St. Germain, Paris in November 2007 on the recommendation of a friend who'd stayed here a few years back. The hotel is right on the corner of Rue St. Germain and Rue de Seine though the entrance is on Rue de Seine. It's very close to several Metro stops. The hotel has a variety of room types, doubles, twins and singles most with either a tub or shower. Ours had a small shower in the corner of the small bathroom. Rooms are not large but adequate. The elevator is the smallest one ever, room for two people standing behind each other but if you have a large suitcase it will only fit one.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel because there are lots of cafes and bakeries in the area. The restaurant right beside the hotel is good and walking back towards the Seine, you'll find lots of places to eat.
There's no air conditioning so it might be quite warm in summer. Noisy outside on Bl. St. Germain but closed windows were ok to keep the edge off the noise. Rates were pretty reasonable, about 100 euros for a double/twin or a bit more for a slightly larger room. I'd recommend it for it's location and value. Hotel room was clean and the staff were good. Some rooms are accessed by a couple of steps so ask if you have mobility issues.

So this is it..... Day 1. It has finally arrived at the day I have been waiting for, for so long. I was awake quite early due to excitement. We were meeting at the airport at 9 am and due to Auckland morning traffic we left home at 7am. We were able to get to The airport with plenty of time to play with the weight of my bags. I still don't know why they are so heavy. I patiently or should I say nervously waited for everyone ...
... Whole blocks are sometimes lined with security vans and police armed with machine guns stand on strategic corners around the city. I cannot decide whether these make me feel more afraid or feel more secure.

... and so we head that way. It's almost empty and we sit outside in the sun and enjoy a yummy lunch (nachos for me) whilst being served by a friendly Philippino waitress who spoke 4 languages!!
Next it's off to Place du Tertre (where the artists paint). We had been there 25 years ago and we had caricature portraits done which we still have, although I never really thought they were a great likeness. This time we purchase 4 lovely little oils ...
On recommendation we had an after lunch hot chocolate at Angelina's opposite the Tuileries which is renowned and we could see why. The setting is so old world and gracious. There was a queue to get in at 1:30 and everyone seemed excited to be experiencing this decadence. Meg was. This evening was our big night at Club du Cercle, an English style club set up ...
... would put another hour on the return trip.
We are going for a late breakfast (it is 11 am) and then a walk along the Seine just for fun.
Ha Ha. Resting? Walk just for fun? Went down the Seine, up the Seine, onto the Luxembourg Gardens then got "temporarily geographically misplaced" as the RAAF Navigator Trainees used to say when they got lost.
Got back to the apartment then out for a meal and listened to ...
