Of course hotel choice is your own business, asked about the area only, to try to understand why you were charged an odd amount.

Central Paris is not really used because you could be on one side of the river and it will cost you 50 Euros, and literally going across the river would cost you 55 Euros, and both locations are right in the center of the city.

It could be that a convenience fee was added to your ride if the taxi company charges for a short notice request, but this is not charged by the driver.
