Students were lodged at the Citadines Apart'hotel, Place d'Italie (13th Arrondissement).
As for Place d'Italie itself...it's an interesting neighborhood. Unfortunately, it's in the extreme south-east of town and is therefore not really close to many main attractions. The Place d'Italie Métro stop is actually a rather large hub, connecting with lines 5, 6 and 7. That summer, however, one of the lines (I can't remember exactly which one) was closed for repairs, making it extremely difficult to get anywhere directly west of us, as we had to go north or south and then over to get anywhere. Overall, though, the 13th is a pleasant neighborhood. It's very quiet and residentially-oriented; if that's what you're looking for, it's a great location. =)
