What do you think about the area of boulevard Port-Royal area.
very convenient and safe area for accomodation : 10/15mn from every happening spot in paris (shopping, restaurants, museums etc.)
The boulevard on the Left Bank, stretches from Les Gobelins métro, near the historic tapestry weaving workshop (
website ), which offers guided tours to visitors, to Port-Royal métro, through a rather bland district full of hospitals, legacy of the many religious orders who were once headquartered here. The ancient abbey of Port-Royal survives. Just off the boulevard on the the rue St-Jacques you’ll find the the Val-de-Grâce, one of the most beautiful churches in Paris, while on the other side, on rue Faubourg St-Jacques is the Paris Observatory, dating from 1667, and also open for guided tours.
