Everybody keeps suggesting airbnb and other sites where you can rent a flat or apartment in the city.  That’s what we plan to do.

I recommend using Priceline.  I had decent luck with it when I was last in Paris.  Our hotel wasn’t in an amazingly central location — we were in Bercy — but it was near the Metro and quite comfortable.

Hotel Ibis is a European chain.  They are clean but not much personality.  I have always felt safe staying there, and they can be found in different arrondissements.

While it’s nice to stay in “the perfect” arrondissement in order to walk to everything, the Paris Metro system is convenient & easy to use.  So if you’re on a budget & don’t mind taking the subway to some of the major attractions, then you’ll be fine.  You might even find that staying a little further away enables you to discover the local neighborhood & find some hidden gems!  Bon voyage!

Agreed, it is quite easy to scoot around on the Metro, and you can always grab a cab if it’s really late at night and you’re beat.

I would go with something like this

I checked, they are available (Opera hotel, near lafayette and the louvre museum) between the 10th and the 21th of september (just cheking the prices).

You can see more of this hotel in http://www.booking.com, it’s 1.000 euros for 11 nights.

We used Airbnb and stayed in the 11th arrondissement, it was perfect! Good view of the city and close to everything. We had dinner at a place called Ave Maria which was closeby and SO good! It’s kind of hipster with great great food and a cool atmosphere. Have fun!!

@claudia_whf:  Hi and sorry, I can’t locate the link. Sometimes this happens because the flat is no longer available, but I would suggest using the ratings system to evaluate if the owner is good at communicating/if the place is worth staying in. Hope this helps!
