If proximity to Paris’s trendy neighborhoods is crucial but you prefer to stay off the beaten track, then don’t miss Le Citizen (96 Quai des Jemmapes, 10th Arr.; 33-1/83-62-55-50; lecitizenhotel.com; doubles from $196). Right on the edge of the leafy Canal St.-Martin, in the 10th Arrondissement, the hotel’s 12 minimalist rooms incorporate modular, pale-wood furniture, giant flat-screen TV’s, and iPads. The best asset: the views of the canal from the cozy window seats in the rooms.
