There are numerous different hotels in Paris to choose from that cater for all budgets and you will spend a lot of time deciding which one is best for you, so from people’s experiences, thought we would provide some ideas.
1 Star Hotels
One star hotels in Paris are generally for those wishing to stay in the capital on a budget and some rooms within the hotels will have their own private bathroom facilities like the Hotel Amarys Simart whereas others will also offer rooms with shared facilities such as the Port-Royal Hotel and the Hotel des Allies.
Not all budget hotels provide breakfast, so this is something else you may wish to check into prior to booking, but there are also places you can stay that have proper cooking facilities, known as a studio room, and one such hotel is called the Residence Hotel Pacific.
2 Star Hotels
There are quite a few different types of two star hotel that range in price depending upon where they are situated and the type of facilities they have on offer and one particular hotel called the Kyriad Hotel has business facilities, meeting rooms, free WiFi and even a restaurant, whereas the Delos Vaugirard has its own parking facilities.
You may like the idea of being within walking distance of the famous Paris landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and if that is the case, then the Hotel de la Motte Picquet is a great choice, or perhaps you are travelling to Paris as a family and therefore the Hotel Cactus could be an option as they have a family suite for up to six people.
Paris is a very historical city with many old buildings and lots have been converted into hotels, yet some have been fully renovated to include lifts for those that are less able, or of course those that are just plain lazy to negotiate flights of stairs!! But there are also hotels that have rooms dedicated for the disabled such as the Hotel de la Paix Tour Eiffel.
3 Star Hotels
Incredibly there are actually more three star hotels in Paris than any other category and again, these range in price depending upon their location and the facilities they have to offer.
However, throughout Europe you do not find many hotels that provide tea and coffee making facilities within a room, so if you like winding into the day with a nice cuppa before breakfast, then check through information carefully, as most hotels that do provide this service will like to make a point of this fact, but we do know that the Best Western Eiffel Segur along with the Hotel Duminy Vendome both have these facilities within the rooms.
There are also several hotels that provide WiFi and internet access if you cannot do without your laptop, yet check carefully as sometimes it is only available in common areas like the lounge area or reception, whereas others state internet access within your room, but some Paris hotels also charge extra for this. However, a couple of hotels that do offer free internet access within your room include the Hotel Choiseul Opera and the Hotel Jardin de Villiers.
4 Star Hotels
Many four star hotels in Paris have room service facilities for snacks and hot meals served to your room throughout the day and evening and the Hotel Atala offers this facility along with the Amarante Beau Manoir, but this hotel also has a fitness room in case you want to work off a few extra pounds from over indulging!
Most hotels with a rating of four will have their own restaurant and will combine luxury with comfort and style, which is logical really, as you are getting towards the top end of hotels in Paris, unless of course you want the real luxury of five star plus with famous names such as the incredible Ritz or the Plaza Athenee, but with price tags to match.
Also both 4 and 5 star hotels in Paris offer suites where you can have a separate lounge area, etc, plus, the more expensive hotels tend to have larger rooms, and unfortunately, this is something you do have to be careful about, as Paris is notorious for small hotel rooms, so beware!
Obviously good planning and research are the keys to getting the most out of your holiday in Paris but we hope this has given you a little insight into the types of hotels available.
