Best Budget Hotels In Paris

Hand picked hotels with a bias toward value for money in Paris


Paris Hotel Room

Every week we review the best value hotel accommodation in Paris in all sectors of the market.

Then we hand pick some suggestions for you to benchmark against.


There is no 'best' hotel or 'best' Paris hotel district to stay in, there are better districts than others for your own individual preferences and budget.


Each example we have picked out below demonstrate an aspect of Paris hotel selection for the value seeking visitor

Whether it be picking out a hotel in a district particularly affordable at the weekend when the most popular districts hotel rates sky rockets, or a hotel with low rates a little way out from the centre but with excellent links to the city centre.


Many of the best deals are a little away from the centre, but all are by a metro station so you can be in the centre of the city within 20 minutes. This way you do not pay the sometimes substantial price premium of staying in the centre, getting a much more comfortable hotel than you could get for the same money. You'll also probably save money in that restaurants and general supplies will be cheaper than on the Champs Elysees etc.


The hotels published on this page feature prices looking 7 weeks ahead. Room rates are seasonal in Paris, and often room rates are much better when booked some time in advance.

So if you look further forward the prices may be considerably different but will normally be consistent in relation to the price differential against other hotel choices. In August, most French go on holiday including Parisians who flock to the beaches. The domestic market for Paris hotels is almost nonexistent in Paris and as a consequence prices are at their lowest all year at this time.

Similarly there are spikes in hotel room rates for big events like the Tour de France finish.

Air conditioned rooms, free wifi. Bistro restaurant offering good value. 10 minute walk to one of the largest shopping centres in Paris, including hypermarket.
This hotel is much cheaper at weekends, holidays than the working week and holiday periods. especially August.

Rooms: Double & Triple Rooms
Nearest Metro Station: Esplanade La Defense 200m (Line 1)


Comment: La Defense, built from scratch as the new modern business district for Paris is way to the west of the city centre of Paris. At first sight, for the average visitor it doesn't look an obvious option to look for accommodation.

As a business district, hotels are not that cheap during the working week. At weekends and the French holiday month of August all the workers disappear and all the hotels deep discount in an effort to fill some of those beds. At these times there are some very nice hotels at very affordable prices.

Comment: Gare Du Nord although not in the very centre of Paris is a major transport hub with fast RER trains to Charles De Gaulle Airport, Orly Airport and Disneyland. Metro lines radiate out to all parts of Paris too and of course Gare Du Nord is the terminus for trains to London, Brussels and Amsterdam.
Couple these great transport links with a good choice of affordable hotel accommodation and a wide range of bars, restaurants and fast food and its a great base in Paris if you have one eye on the wallet. The accommodation ranges through the whole spectrum from hostels to 4 star hotels and most things in between.

Paris City Centre Next To The Louvre
Timhotel Louvre - 3 Star Hotel

Located in central Paris, just 450m from the Louvre Museum and not much further to Notre Dame Cathedral and other major sights. This location is as good as it gets.

The hotel, part of a regional chain of typical Parisian hotels offer a flowery patio and guest rooms with TV and free Wi-Fi access. The air-conditioned rooms are equipped with a telephone and tea and coffee making facilities. All rooms have a private bathroom with a hairdryer. Guests can enjoy a buffet breakfast every morning.

Rooms: Single, Double & Triple Rooms
Nearest Metro Station: Palais Royal Musee du Louvre 300m (Line 1,7)


Comment: The district name (Arrondissement 1) of this district gives a clue to how central this location by the Louvre is in Paris. As far as leisure visitors are concerned the Louvre is just about in the centre of everything they want to see in Paris. Notre Dame is 5 minutes walk east, the left bank you can walk across to, and going west you soon come to the Champs Elysees.

The main department stores of Paris located beyond the Opera Garnier are also only 10 minutes walk north of the Louvre too. Next to the Opera Garnier a convenient airport bus to CDG airport is very convenient too.

Grands Boulevards - Affordable District Of Central Paris
Mercure Opera Grands Boulevards - 3 Star Hotel

Located in the heart of Paris's theatre district within walking distance of the Garnier Opera, famous department stores and the very centre of Paris.

The soundproofed air-conditioned guest rooms have free Wi-Fi access and satellite TV. All rooms have a minibar and an electric kettle for making hot drinks.

A buffet breakfast is available every morning. Street side cafes and restaurants can be found within 500 metres of the hotel.

Rooms: Single, Double/Twin Rooms
Nearest Metro Station: Bonne Nouvelle 500m (Line 8,9)


Comment: Grands Boulevards is a loosely defined area in Arrondissement 9. Very central, only a short distance from the premium hotel prices of around Opera Garnier, the price differential to hotels from Opera Garnier to here on the eastern side of Arrondissement 9 is great.

The Grands Boulevard hotel area itself reflects the 'value for money' hotels of the area and is full of mid-range and budget hotels including global chains like Ibis and Best Western. If you are that way inclined the Louvre, Notre Dame and the shops around opera are all walkable.
