3 star mid-range hotels in Paris

Finding best mid-range hotels in Paris for your needs


Mercure Hotel Paris La Defense Grande Arche

Eye on the wallet: Mercure offer a good benchmark to measure alternatives

3 star hotels in Paris are numerous, and vary enormously in both quality and price.

 

The key thing to remember about the star system is that the number allocated isn't a measure of how good a hotel is, but measures the hotel facilities and services it provides.


A 3 star hotel in Paris means your room must have a minimum space of 13.5 square metres including bathroom. The reception area/lounge must be at least 50 square metres.


Staff members are required to speak an additional European language (other than French) and the reception must be open at least 10 hours per day. That is all.

 

Few hotels in Paris are purpose-built, modern buildings, those that there are are mostly found a little away from the centre of the city.

 

Many of the familiar global hotel chains are present in Paris, but they do not have the dominance or market share than in many other destinations.

 

The majority of 3 star hotels in Paris are independent, but what they offer varies enormously.

 

In the mid-range 3 star type sector the Mercure and Best Western brands have the largest coverage with hotels in most Paris districts.

 

If you have one eye on the wallet then Mercure in particular offer a good benchmark on which to measure alternatives.


Hotel districts

Thee most sought after areas for leisure visitors are around the Champs-Elysees, Louvre, Opera Garnier and St Germain area of the Left Bank. You pay a sizable price premium for a hotel in any of these districts.

 

Paris has an excellent public transport system that is very affordable. For the small inconvenience of ten minutes on the Metro, you can reduce your hotel costs substantially.


For those on a budget the hotel district around some of the main railway stations in Paris are particularly fruitful for value accommodation. Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est, Gare de Lyon and Montparnasse are notable.

 

If any of these are your arrival gateways in Paris, they are probably your benchmark district to check out. For those flying into Paris, all of the stations have very good links to the airports.

 

These railway stations are also public transport hubs with multiple Metro lines that will get you to wherever you want to go in Paris quickly and cheaply.


Other major affordable mid-range hotel districts are Grands Boulevards and around Bastille/Republique, just east of the Marais district.


Hotel Districts cheaper at weekends & holidays (August)

Room rates reflect demand and in this computer age room rates are not fixed, what you pay reflects how hard the hotel finds it to get customers.

 

In districts sought out by leisure visitors there tends to be a premium for rates at the weekend. Conversely business districts struggle at the weekends as their core market disappears.

 

At the weekend probably the best two districts for value for money are the Le Defense and Bercy districts. Neither is central but both have fast Metro and RER links that will get you to the centre in twenty minutes and save you a bundle.


August is the quietest month of year as most of the Parisians flee Paris and business grinds to a stop. Again the business districts are very cheap all of August.
