What is the Best Hotel in Paris?

A trip to Paris should be one of the highlights of your year. In fact, it could very well turn out to be one of the most memorable trips of your life.

If you are going to make it a fabulous trip to Paris then you will want to make sure that you stay in the right hotel, won’t you? The following are some of the best ways of finding the best hotel in Paris for your needs.

A Great Location

As with any of the world’s biggest and best cities, the location of your hotel in Paris is vital. With about 2000 hotels and places to stay in the city narrowing down your options isn’t going to be easy. The first thing we need to understand is that the city is set out in twenty arrondissements (districts) leading from the centre out to the suburbs. The lowest numbered districts are more central and are likely to cost you more to stay in. However, there is a very good public transport system in Paris, so staying near to a Metro station or bus stop will give you easy access to all of the top attractions even if you are far from the centre. A 2 star option near the Picpus station is the Hotel du Printems in the 12th arrondissement. For something a bit higher class you could try the Daunou Opéra. This is a smashing hotel in the 2nd arrondissement which is very close to the Opéra Metro station and also pretty central for checking out some attractions by walking.

A Touch of Luxury

The last hotel we looked at was of a high standard but what if you want something extra special for an unforgettable trip to the French capital? In that case, you are spoiled for choice, with lots of quality hotels to choose from. For example, you could look at staying in the luxury surroundings of the Peninsula Hotel. It has only recently opened and is the one of the newest 5 star hotels in Paris. It is located close to the Arc de Triomphe and is therefore perfectly situated to use as a base for exploring the many delights of Paris. Another 5 star option is the stunning La Tremoille. This fantastic hotel is centrally situated, in one of the city’s finest streets. The rooms are top class but it is the amazing service that will stick in your memory if you stay here. If you really want to spend a lot of money on a top class hotel then you won’t go far wrong with either of these places.

A Cheap Option

Of course, you might decide that you would rather sleep cheaply and use most of your budget for doing things in Paris. The good news for budget travellers is that Paris is bursting with low cost hotels and hostels. Absolute Budget is a great name for a hotel and you’ll be fine in this place, near the trendy Oberkampf district. While it is cheap, it is clean, modern and comfortable to stay in. In terms of hostels, some of the lowest cost ones are bordering on the grungy and not very pleasant side. A decent choice comes in the shape of the Loft Boutique Hotel and Hostel. This is another modern option and is perfectly situated in the Belleville district for anyone who wants to explore one of the coolest parts of Paris. A quick look online will let you see a range of other budget accommodation options in the French Capital, with a big variety of locations to choose from.
