At the beginning of the street Jacob is a small garden with a fountain, it was the location of the Hotel de Cronstadt, destroyed in 1944. A nice ride...

  • I'm a bit biased - I have an apartment on Rue Jacob. The street does not immediately strike you as a thing of beauty, but research the history (famous former residents) and look up at the buildings an...  more »
  • On the streets of the two lines north of the Boulevard Saint-Germain, adjacent and 5 University of Paris. Lined with boutique Saint-Germain, quite good. Though the absolute number is small it's defective. On Sunday it is quiet.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
