Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If this is going to be an East Paris centered meetup, I'd recommend what is probably the least expensive accommodation you can find anywhere in the city:  Hôtel Vicq d'Azir

Last time I recommended it, a room went for €35 / night. It's perfectly adequate, no frills, yet well above hostel comfort levels, and is just a hop and a skip from the Gares du Nord and Est.

As an added extra, the hotel is kitty corner from the French Communist party headquarters : ), designed by Oscar Neimeyer [worth a visit] and is within walking distance from La Villette and the canal de l'Est.

It's a very lively part of town, with the Oberkampf quartier, its bars and music, and the Bouffes du Nord [a superb theater].

I hope I'll be available for the meetup. I can't make a commitment just now, but I'll certainly be available for advice as to where to go and dine in the mean while.
