S-o I am finally looking into actually booking a place to stay, too, and, before reserving a single room, wanted to make sure there was no-one still looking for someone with whom to share a cheap-ish central-ish room or apartment from June 1 to June 7. Is there? I was thinking at this place
(provided that it isn't full for the week and/or somebody vouches for its being merely one step up from Au sergent de Waterloo - I am absolutely not set on being in Montmartre, it was just the first nice-looking thing that came up) or this
(again, first thing to come up), but if there is
someone Still Looking and they have a better suggestion, speak up!
Cheapish means 'in the 30€ per person/night category approximately
'. If 30 it is and 60 for two, we can also split that 40/20 (the Richard one is 45 per night for both, so that could be split 30/15, or 35/10 on the condition that you carry me up the stairs and braid my hair) - I come from Premier Empire territory i.e. have much lower transportation costs than most here, and it's still cheaper for me than getting a room of my own for 50
I'm fluent in English and know enough French to say 'o, show us the way to the next whisky bar' and a number of less essential things; past room- and flatmates have generally found me easy to ignore (should you wish to do so - of course, you are equally welcome to join me in some moderately geeky flânerie). You should not have an aversion to stuffed rats, however.
(Also, totally not Les Mis-related, but do any of this forum's lugubrious Romantics plan to see "Les contes d'Hoffmann" on the first or third of June? Or, alternatively, does anyone plan to see it before that who could let me know if the production is godawful?
