Where to stay in Paris? Find best Paris hotels

Paris is full of attractions and is an epicentre of art, fashion, food and culture. It is worth looking at the way the public transport works in Paris, as you will find zones radiating out from the centre. Most visitors stay in hotels in Zone 1, as this where nearly all the hotels are and where all the city centre attractions are located. Your choice of location will therefore depend on a combination of the ease of Paris transfer options, price and whether to be centrally located or not. We cover well-known global hotel chains in Paris as well as independent hotels, hostels, apartments and Airbnb's. Use our guides below to find the area and type of accommodation that suits your needs and budget.
