The Right Bank

  • 1st & 2nd district : Louvre Museum – Palais Royal – Châtelet Les Halles
  • 3rd & 4th district : Cathedral of Notre Dame – Le Marais – Centre Pompidou
  • 8th, 16th & 17th district : Champs-Élysées – Madeleine – Trocadéro – Bois de Boulogne
  • 9th & 18th district : Opéra Garnier – Haussmann – Montmartre – Pigalle
  • 10th & 11th district : Place de la République – Bastille – Canal Saint Martin
  • 12th, 19th & 20th district : Bercy – Buttes-Chaumont – La Villette – Bois de Vincennes

The Left Bank

  • 5th & 6th district : Panthéon – Latin Quarter – Saint-Germain – Jardin du Luxembourg
  • 7th & 15th district : The Eiffel Tower – Les Invalides – Musée d’Orsay – Champ de Mars
  • 13th & 14th district : Place d’Italie – La Butte aux Cailles – Montparnasse – Parc Montsouris

There’s life outside of the Left Bank. Many travelers think they have to stay there, and are comfortable surrounded by lots of tourists and English-speakers. But other neighborhoods in Paris are great to explore and staying in one gives you a better sense of the Parisian life.

The more you get into the epicenter of Paris, the more hotels will be expensive. The South of Paris (13th, 14th) doesn’t have lots of major landmarks, this is why the hotels are more affordable than in other districts.

The Palace of Versailles, South of Paris, and Disneyland Paris, East of Paris, are one hour away from Paris by train. You need 2 hours for a round trip from Paris Hotels.

Paris hotels tips & hints

  • You get what you pay for. Any hotel under 100€ per night is likely to give you the minimum
  • Ask for a hotel in Paris having free Wi-Fi. It does pay to ask when reserving if that is a concern
  • In general, rooms on the inside are far quieter than rooms overlooking the street
  • Don’t judge a hotel by the lobby. Many places have a gorgeous lobby, which can be deceiving
  • Hotels pay taxes based on how many stars they have. Five-stars hotels is the highest
  • Print out and bring your confirmation just in case
  • Does the hotel have an elevator which is something to consider if you pack ‘American-style’
  • If you like your hotel, befriend. They’ll remember you and you’ll get better treatment each time
  • Most of the time, breakfast is extra; it may be expensive. Better have breakfast in a typical café
  • Air-conditioning in France is not like American air-conditioning and can be weaker

Paris offers many possibilities according to each budget. There are more than 75,000 hotel rooms in the city of lights, a large proportion of small and privately owned hotels.
