For a budget hotel, this boutique property is surprisingly design-savvy, offering bright, modern accommodations in the 13th arrondissement. In a peaceful, less tourist-ridden area of the Rive Gauche, Hotel La Manufacture makes a good first impression with its casually stylish lobby and welcoming staff. Just around the corner from the Place D'Italie metro stop, this property is a 15-minute walk from the Pantheon (down the lovely Rue de Gobelins) and around 60 minutes on foot from the Notre Dame, not accounting for stop-offs along Rue Monge in the Latin Quarter. Rooms here are light and chic, with wifi connectivity and petite balconies for some. Overall, this boutique offering is best suited to those who want a quiet, stylish stay away from the hoi polloi.
