Accommodation in Paris
Find your perfect accommodation in Paris with our guides to luxury, mid range and budget hotels and self-catering apartments
Paris could almost be described as hotel capital of the world. The city boasts some seriously elegant accommodation in impeccably run luxury hotels with famous names - and often with gourmet restaurants. These are generally centrally located close to Ile de St Louis, Tuileries or the Champs Elysees and a stay here is a real experience. Other top end hotels are chic and trendy, with utterly contemporary interiors.
Comfortable, mid range accommodation in Paris is easy to find in most locations, with a mix of independently run hotels and big name international chains. Most independents are in older buildings, some with charming traditional character and even overlooking a garden or courtyard. Those that do not offer lunch or dinner will usually recommend good local restaurants, cafes and bars.
Budget accommodation is predominantly in small, independent hotels, hostels and B&Bs in the Marais and Left Bank areas, within easy reach of the city centre and main sights. Some of the cheaper French chains have Paris hotels in outer central and suburban locations accessible to the Metro. Self catering holiday apartments can offer the chance to find excellent value Paris accommodation in attractive central areas such as St Germain des Pres and Montmartre. Self-catering also allows you the freedom to create your own taste of Parisian life.
