    Hi Rosemary, in the 7th I can recommend Hotel Muguet (small but perfectly formed bathrooms), quite feminine. As a solo female traveller I love staying there. I would also recommend Cafe Cler in the nearby rue Cler for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.

      Thanks Jo, I’m sure my readers will be interested. I’ll have to check out Café Cler myself!
