The highest is the number means the further away area and is generally the residential area or Paris. In this post, I will present some choices of Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris or Hotel recommendations in Paris by experienced travelers all around the world.

THE PARIS RITZ 

My husband wanted to make our Valentines week very special.  When he chose a hotel, it was not hard, the Paris Ritz was an automatic choice.  Ritz and Paris just go together.  With its location in the famous Place, Vendôme begins our it is your first hint to how magnificent and special our stay would be. As we were escorted inside through the brass incased revolving door, our breath is taken away at the opulence of the lobby.  The restaurants, tea room, and our suite were magnificent with so much opulence.  For Valentines, the Ritz courtyard was decorated all in lights which gave it such a romantic feel.

Our suite had its own fireplace, beautiful décor and gold swan fixtures for everything in the bathroom. Awaiting us was champagne and a Ritz Teddy bear holding a red heart-shaped balloon, the entire bear was made of chocolate and dusted in eatable gold.   

Everything about the Paris Ritz will make you want to stay here.  I cannot even possibly pick out one thing over another that made this stay so wonderful.  The service, décor, location, accommodations and all around feeling being in the Ritz was just a Valentine’s I will never forget!

HOTEL SPLENDID ETOILE

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

It’s always nice to splurge on yourself once in a while and on my latest trip to the wonderful City of Love, I decided that this would be my time. I went ahead and booked the most gorgeous room in Hotel Splendid Etoile. While not the cheapest of rooms, it is also quite affordable considering its wonderful amenities. I decided to go with Hotel Splendid Etoile because of the breathtaking view it offers of the world-famous Arc de Triomphe. Each morning I got to have breakfast on my personal balcony overlooking the gorgeous monument. Another wonderful perk of the hotel is a convenient location. Located smack-dab in the center of Paris, you can get just about anywhere in 30 minutes or less. The staff was absolutely extraordinary, nice, welcoming and all around wonderful people. I give it 5 stars in every aspect so if you’re looking into taking a trip to Paris, I would highly recommend Hotel Splendid Etoile for anyone looking for an unforgettable experience!

KEY FEATURE – Location, View, welcoming staff 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Arc de Triomphe, shopping and famous nightlife bars like  Lido

COURTYARD PARIS GARE DE LYON

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

The Courtyard Paris Gare de Lyon is a new hotel in Paris, part of the Marriott group. It opened at the end of 2018, and it’s been one of my favorite hotels in Paris ever since.

The number one reason the Courtyard is so high up on my list is because of its incredible view over Paris (seriously one of the best). The 19 floors hotel offers unobstructed views over the city: Notre-Dame de Paris, Gare de Lyon, The Pantheon, and one of the best views of the Eiffel Tower.

 The rooms are clearly built around the view: absolutely huge picture window, on the whole length of the room. I loved laying in bed at night, with the curtains opened, watching over the illuminated city. 

More than just the room, the whole hotel feels very cozy, like a cocoon you just want to stay in for the rest of the week. I highly recommend dining in the in-house restaurant, where the local chef Mélissa will serve you local products from small producers, in the best French terroir fashion.

Finally, the central location of the hotel makes it a good pick for starting your Paris explorations, whether you’ll take the trains from the main public transports station in Paris or just go for a walk alongside the Seine river banks, towards Notre-Dame. 

KEY FEATURE – View from the room, Newly built, Location

HOTEL ATMOSPHERES 

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

Paris is chock full of boutique hotels so I’m not quite sure how I happened upon Hotel Atmospheres, a four-star boutique hotel in the 5th Arr not far from Sorbonne, the Seine, and Notre Dame Cathedral but I was happy that I did.  The website is filled with design eye candy – rooms with pops of color, various textures, and local photography – everything I wanted in a hotel plus a boutique bonus – air conditioning!  On my first stay, my niece and I had a comfortable twin room and on my second stay, I had a standard room with a space invader in the shower (clever use of tiles).  The hotel offers 56 rooms from single rooms up to a suite for a family of four so there’s something for everyone and each room is full of interesting details to discover.  The fantastic location is surrounded by cafes, restaurants and art galleries.   The staff on duty on both stays were quite lovely to assist with any and all requests especially the draft “how do I use the hairdryer?” query (answer:  “push and hold the button”). Hotel Atmospheres is a contemporary boutique hotel in a quiet part of the city which is exactly what I need after a busy day exploring Paris – a genuinely warm welcome back to a comfortable home away from home.

HOTEL De NESLE 

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

I was looking for something in the center of Paris with ‘character’ and also a place I could afford. I was fairly certain I wasn’t going to find anything until I came across Hotel De Nesle. What a quirky little gem! It was like checking into Narnia or Wonderland. The hotel is located close to Latin Quarter in Sixth Arrondissement with several major attractions such as the Notre Dame close by. Each room of the hotel had a distinctive historical theme (Egyptian, Romans, etc.) with hand-painted wall murals. Rooms were cozy and large enough by Parisian standards. Shared bathroom on every floor but a few rooms also had private bathrooms, so choose carefully. A courtyard garden and tiny balconies rounded the great stay. The only bummer? No stairs. Also, another gem nearby is Brasserie Le Nesle, a cozy, homely restaurant where I spent many a day sipping wine and watching the world pass by. Underrated gems, both.

KEY FEATURE – Quirky style themed hotel. 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Gardens and many more.

LE MERIDIEN ETOILE 

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

On my first visit to Paris France I was traveling with a flight attendant friend, and she insisted that we stay at Le Meridien Etoile in the Port Maillot area of the city. Hey, if a flight attendant recommends it who am I to suggest otherwise? I found it to be a perfect choice! With a modern, spacious interior typically found with all hotels within the Le Meridien brand, the hotel is walking distance to Champs-Élysées and Arc de Triomphe. Most importantly, a metro station is about a block away giving you easy access to other parts of Paris, and the Le Bus Direct airport bus stop is across the street in front of le Palais des Congrès de Paris providing convenient transportation to the airport.  Another plus is that there is Paul’s boulangerie, a supermarket, Starbucks, and other shops below the Convention Centre should you need some food and supplies and don’t want to walk too far. Le Meridien Etoile is a popular airline crew hotel so, don’t be surprised if you see pilots and flight crew in the lobby.

KEY FEATURE – Modern style, spacious & Location 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, and Lido(famous Cabaret bar)

HOTEL EIFFEL CAPITOL  

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

Just a ten-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower and literally on the doorstep of the Duplex Metro Station, Hôtel Eiffel Capitol is my number one choice in Paris because of it’s location and price.

Not only can you get around the city with ease but there are also some incredible restaurants in the area, a delicious bakery ideal for a quick breakfast and a handful of convenient stores too. 

The rooms are spacious, modern and clean and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. They recommended some great places to eat and drink and each day checked if we needed any directions or help planning our day. 

We found, compared to other hotels in and around the Eiffel Tower, this hotel was a really good value for money. We paid €112 per night because it was a school holiday but cheaper rates are available if you travel outside the peak season.

 MODE APARTMENTS 

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

I’ve stayed at Mode Aparthotel – Arc d’Triomphe several times. They are fantastic.

One of my favorite features of the apartments is their location: 5 minutes walk from the Arc d’Triomphe and 10 minutes walk to the Place du Trocadero. The apartments are on a quiet side street, just off classy Avenue Victor Hugo which is full of smart boutiques and good restaurants. Despite the central location, I’ve always found the apartments extremely quiet once you’re inside.

The development was only completed in 2018 and so everything feels very fresh and contemporary. For Paris, the room sizes are generous and I’ve found the fact you have a mini kitchen really useful. A couple of the rooms have balconies, but even if you don’t get one of those, there’s a nice outdoor courtyard with seating as well as a sitting room for guests. There’s also a small gym and a business suite should you need it.

As these are serviced apartments rather than a hotel, there’s no breakfast. But they do put out mini pastries in the morning and there are fruit, sweets and a coffee machine that are available for guests throughout the day at no cost.

If you’re looking for somewhere central and contemporary to stay with some nice added extras, look no further!

KEY FEATURE – Location, mini kitchen, newly built up 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Champ Elysees, Arc De Triomphe, Lido (famous Cabaret Bar)

RELAIS HOTEL DU VIEUX  

For me, Paris is all about history. Walking in the footsteps of famous writers, artists and the ability to just ‘be’ (etre) is what makes this city a destination I always return to.  Paris’ Latin Quarter provides a glimpse into the medieval history captured in time through its 13th Century buildings and the cobbled streets that meander throughout the district.  When looking for a place to stay in this fabulous place, I stumbled across the Relais Hotel du Vieux Paris.  Originally built in the 13th Century, this quaint boutique hotel has a unique history of its own.  Once home to artists, writers, musicians, and photographers it was within the walls of the Relais Hotel du Vieux that several of the most important works of the Beat Generation were composed from 1957 to 1963.  It was a no brainer, I just had to stay there. 

Where To Stay In Paris – Best Hotels in Paris

Rooms at this lovely boutique hotel are decorated to capture a long ago time, the atmosphere is friendly and the location perfect for walking to the main attractions of Paris, or to just sit and watch the world go by in a local café.  The owner and staff make you feel at home and are always happy to give you tips and advice on the best places to see in Paris and the local area.  Not to mention the opportunity to practice your French.  Traditional French breakfast is served daily in the dining room.  The rooms are typically French, perfect for a couple or solo traveler.  I fell in love with the place instantly.

HOTEL VILLA D’ESTREES

Paris Hotel Reviews

As a family of five, it’s often difficult to find an apartment or hotel room when we travel. On our last visit to Paris, we also brought my mother-in-law so that made it even more difficult than usual as she didn’t want to stay on her own. I spent many hours searching for the ‘perfect’ apartment that could accommodate all six of us and incredibly, we found it at Hotel Villa d’Estrées.

Hotel Villa d’Estrées is a small boutique hotel on Rue Gît le Coeur. Like many small hotels, most of the rooms at Hotel Villa d’Estrées can accommodate two or three people but incredibly, this wonderful little hotel also has an apartment available. The apartment consists of two interconnecting rooms and is beautifully decorated. There is a small lounge area and each bedroom has either a king bed or two twins (your choice) and a daybed. The daybeds may be a bit small for adults but for two of our children, they were perfect!

The hotel has a small elevator, concierge and wonderful staff. Breakfast is available for a small charge or you can simply walk to one of the many nearby cafés. This brings us to one of the best features of the Hotel Villa d’Estrees: its’ location!

Hotel Villa d’ Estrées is located near the Seine River, between Paris’ Latin Quarter and Saint Germain des Prés. Depending on which direction you choose to walk, you can reach Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre or Luxembourg Gardens in 10 minutes or less. Best of all, the Saint-Michel metro station, which will bring you to the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe or the Palace of Versailles, is right around the corner!

Truly, this is one of our family’s favorite hotels in Europe and we can’t wait to return!

KEY FEATURE – Family Friendly, Spacious and wonderful staff 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Gardens, and Seine River.

HOTEL MONTHOLON

From the UK, Paris is super easy to visit, with the city only a couple of hours away via the Eurostar. So for people visiting by train you arrive, alongside visitors from Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands at Paris Gare du Nord. Hotel Montholon is placed perfectly to drop your stuff off at before exploring the city, only a five-minute walk from the station.

It is equally well located for some of Paris’ famous attractions, with the Sacre Coeur only 10 minutes away, and a metro station just around the corner. Also nearby are a number of classic Parisian bistros and boulangerie, perfect for picking up a croissant before a day of sightseeing or a modules fries before turning in for the night. All in all, with its great location, affordable rates, and cozy rooms Hotel Montholon makes a perfect stay in Paris!

The HOXTON HOTEL  

Paris Hotel Reviews

A simple, yet classic style is one that is synonymous with the French and, this is also apparent in the design of The Hoxton Hotel in Paris. The Hoxton brand prides itself on fully immersing itself and being inspired by the streets the hotels are surrounded by. As you walk into the open house hotel, you will see French locals enjoying a coffee and a bite to eat, giving travelers a glimpse of French living without leaving the hotel.

The simple styling of the bedrooms, with parquet flooring and geometric bedding, makes way for quirky features, such as a vintage telephone and radio. Rose gold bathroom fittings and crystal glasses add to the affordable luxury feel of The Hoxton. Not to mention, the dreamy mattress and pillows, which only make getting up to explore Paris that much harder! Thankfully, there is also a no-fuss grab-n-go-breakfast.

Whilst a relatively new addition to the Parisian hotel scene, The Hoxton proves to be the best choice for an affordable luxury boutique stay and, one the locals love too.

KEY FEATURE – Trendy, Price and Boutique style hotel

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Gare Du Nord metro station, Opera Garnier, Gare De l’Est and many more.

CAMPANILE BAGNOLET HOTEL

Where to stay in Paris

We chose the Campanile Bagnolet Paris Hotel for our stay in the city during our half-month long trip in Europe. Visiting from India we obviously had to seek a budget hotel as we were stationed in Europe and traveling to multiple cities. Hostels were out of the question for us as we were traveling with our little one. The hotel is located very near to Gallieni Metro Station. Plus just adjacent to the premise there is an Auchan supermarket and McDonald’s because of this quick shopping and late night returning to the hotel was comfortable for us. The rooms are pretty clean and medium-small sized yet just enough for a family of three to fit in comfortably. Washrooms are fitted with a bathtub and are clean as well.  I am not sure if the hotel had a restaurant as we didn’t avail any food from there. Hotel staff is sincere but with respect to seeking help for taking luggage to the room or planning your trip or routes for that matter they aren’t forthcoming. Price is decent. Corridors are rather silent. Proper heating and air-conditioning are provided within the hotel premise and rooms. The hotels enjoy great connectivity to the city center and even to Disneyland via metro and bus. Overall we had a comfy stay here.

KEY FEATURE – Near to Metro station and Affordable. (Located in Bagnolet in the eastern side of Paris) 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Gallieni Metro Station, Porte De Bagnolet Metro Station.

IBIS STYLE B&B HOTEL

Paris Hotel Reviews

IBIS Style B&B hotel is the perfect choice for budget-conscious travelers in Paris. Located in the beautiful neighborhood Pigalle in Montmartre, the hotel is only 200 meters away from the metro station, 300 meters from the Moulin Rouge and 1.2km away from the stunning Sacre Coeur.

The hotel is not luxurious. You will get standard facilities as expected from IBIS. I loved the red and white combination in the interiors and the traditional Parisian windows. The complimentary breakfast included delicious muffins and croissants among the other items of a typical Parisian breakfast. There were fresh fruits and juicer in the eating area.

This is a great place to If you really want to experience Paris at night.  There are numerous clubs and restaurants in the vicinity. That includes the oldest cabaret Moulin Rouge also.

In the morning, or basically at any time of the day you can hike uphill to the Sacre Coer, perched atop the Montmartre hill. You would enjoy the walk in the cobbled streets which inspired artists like Van Gogh, Picasso, Alfred, and so many others. You will find these streets now lined with artists selling sketches and watercolors. It is an amazing place for street shopping as well.

In a city as expensive as Paris, we booked the hotel at less than Rs.6000 per night with complimentary buffet breakfast. 

KEY FEATURE – Price, close to famous night clubs of Paris. 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – Sacre Coeur, Montmartre hill, Moulin Rouge(world famous Cabaret bar), paintings shops and many more.

A boutique style hotel with award-winning Art Noveau façade by the famous architect Jules Aime Lavirotte is located in the most prestigious district of Paris.  Just at a walkable distance from Arc de Triomphe, Avenue des Champs-Elysees, this is a favorable hotel to stay.

  1. One of my favorite travel memories is staying in an apartment while visiting Paris. It definitely made me feel like a local, though it was not fun always having to use public transit to get to where I was going. On my next trip to Paris I would love to stay in an upscale hotel, even if it was just for one night. I would choose the Paris Ritz which looks the definition of a classy and upscale Paris hotel.

  2. Oh, the City of Love! Your choice for Valentine’s stay looks amazing – just like I’d expect an upscale Parisian hotel would. Though my budget friendly mind would probably choose to stay at Hotel De Nesle. I love the hand painted murals!

    1. Thanks Julien and yes this city has many choices for all budgets and tastes. Being a major art center the hotels are also having unique facades and interiors.

  3. Paris is truly amazing but there is always that one thing… how to find a hotel that is not overpriced and has a good location. I will have to bookmark this to my future travels so I can come back and use it as my guide. Good information!

  4. Haven’t visited Paris yet, but you just made my impending planning a whole lot easy! Great article. Hotel De Nesle looks so cool and super quirky, hope they don’t hike their price. And the minute I saw that picture of Hoxton Hotel, I was reminded of Amelie; the room has such soothing look!

  5. I always think of Ritz when mentioned Paris, oh it’s a dreamy place! Paris is always a dream destination, and hope to finally visit it soon. I think it would be a nice place to get many stories too.

  6. This is an excellent roundup and a very helpful post for anyone visiting Paris. It covers all the best locations of Paris from Arc De Triompe to Montmartre. Glad to contribute to this as it rekindled my memories of this great city. Next time I would love to stay somewhere like the Courtyar offering unobstructred views of the city.

  7. Paris is one of my most favourite cities in the world and I have tried a few hotels in the city. They do come with a price but again accommodation in Paris is expensive. My favourite out of the list would be the Ritz without a doubt. It’s got that history that class and stands apart. It’s got a great location as well so lucky you were able to get a taste of this great property. Thanks for sharing a detailed list of hotels very helpful I must say.

  8. So many great suggestions on where to stay in Paris no matter your budget. I’ve stayed at the Relais Vieux Hotel and agree it has a perfect location in the Latin Quarter. But I also learned about affordable hotels in other areas that I may consider next time – like the Courtyard Gare de Lyon. I love a great view!

  9. Wow..this is a great list of hotels from luxury to budget. Quite an insightful article. Out of all these hotels, what attracted me was the HOTEL MONTHOLON. It looks quite interesting from outside, specially the architectural design. This post is quite helpful as I might be traveling to Paris soon. Thanks you for this detailed post.

  10. I haven’t stayed at all of these but I see a few exquisite hotels on this list! You sure made a great compilation of the finest places to stay in Paris. I would say this is a very helpful post for all people planning to visit Paris

  11. This is a great list of a variety of types of hotels in Paris. I have had co-workers stay at the Ritz, and they always say such good things about it! I’d love to stay at one of the boutique hotels one day too, because I love all of the history.

    1. Thanks Michelle and yes, it is always good to stay at boutique hotels with some special decor or theme.

  12. Paris is a beautiful city and all these hotels look beautiful and grand. I am sure you had a lovely valentines day at the Ritz. View of the Eiffel Tower from the Courtyard Paris Gare de Lyon is simply mesmerising. I would have kept looking at the Eiffel Tower all night from the room. The list is quite exhaustive and I am sure it will help the travellers in choosing the stay of their kind.

  13. Hotel Montholon sounds like a great location. I have a feeling that the next time we are in Paris, we’ll be looking to do a sprint tour before boarding a train. It sounds like the location (and bag drop) at Hotel Montholon would fit our needs perfectly. That way we could get two – almost full days in Paris without luggage before boarding a night train.

  14. This is such a fantastic group of hotels. There is such a range of sizes, from boutique to large, and a wonderful variation in price from budget to luxury.

  15. So many amazing options. I would love to stay at Mode Aparthotel – Arc d’Triomphe. It’s great that everything is still fairly new and having a mini kitchen is a huge plus for me!

  16. Oh what a great list! I went and looked at many of them on booking.com! You have me setting my sights on the Ritz, at least once in my life, and a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower. What a treat that would be! I have stayed at a few quirky, nothing to write home about hotels and also quite a few Air BnB’s in Paris. Time to up my game!

    1. Thanks Nita for reading through and finding this list a very helpful one. Pack up your bags again and head to Paris

    2. So insanely jealous you’ve stayed at The Ritz – this is such a bucketlist dream of mine! Although all these hotels look bucketlist worthy!

  17. Wow, so many great choices here. It would be a dream to stay at the Paris Ritz, sipping champagne in a room with a fireplace. I also liked the amazing views from the new Courtyard Paris Gare de Lyon–that’s one to keep in mind. I’m bookmarking this list for my next trip to Paris.

  18. I am yet to visit Paris, but I am definitely keeping a list of these amazing hotels. The properties look so awesome. I like my apartment or hotel to be close to the attractions. Hotel Villa D’ Streets look classy to me. Hotel Elysees Ceramic is also nice to be considered. Thanks for the share.

    1. Thanks Shreya for reading through and hopefully this article will help you in finalizing your stay when you visit Paris.

  19. This article has come in handy since we are planning to visit Paris soon. The options are endless but your description of Hotel Atmospheres makes me more drawn to it since we are a family of four. The fact that it’s surrounded by cafes, restaurants and art galleries is a plus. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Great roundup on Paris hotels! My husband would flat out pick the Ritz as he is a Ritz fan. I stayed at the Park Hyatt Regency Etoile last summer and had a fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower. The photo of the Hotel Atmospheres in your list triggered my memory though. It looks like where I stayed on my first trip to Paris in 2010. I didn’t book it though and that was before I started really keeping up with things so I can’t completely remember. The photo looked like our room but I don’t remember a space invader in the shower! Perfect list of so many options!

  21. OMG If I have unlimited travel budget, I will definitely stays at Ritz. It is one of the best hotels in Paris based from my friend who stayed there, that gives awesome services + safety.
    2nd option is at Hoxton Hotel. Their bed looks good too.

  22. These hotels all sound amazing, but I particularly love the sound of the Hotel De Nesle. Like you, I love hotels with a bit of character and rooms with Egyptian murals sound fun! Paris is such an expensive city, whenever I have visited in the past I have ended up staying in some dodgy hostels. But now I am a bit older with a baby, comfort is key! So it’s nice to know the Hotel De Nesle is affordable. I’ll keep this in mind for next time.

  23. Those hotels all look gorgeous, and so accommodating! Paris is on my to-do list. I am actually learning French right now, and as soon as I get closer to my trip I’ll need to look back on this to decide where to stay!

  24. To be honest, I’ve been to Paris 3 times now and it’s one city that hasn’t lived up to my expectations. Although being Paris (so iconic and all) my expectations were probably really high! But I think I would have a different experience if I stayed in the Ritz! That sounds so wonderful – would definitely love to go to Paris and stay there

  25. Love seeing where people have stayed and their experiences. Paris is one of my favourite cities and when I last visited I stayed in an airbnb which was amazing. I felt like a real Parisian waking up every morning in a traditional Paris apartment.

  26. The Paris Ritz looks like the perfect Parisian place to stay! I would need to up my fashion game for that one though haha 🙂 Saving for a future trip to Paris!!!

  27. Those hotels looks amazing, but I’m more of a budget traveler, so I cannot really appreciate all of them. But thank you for this, maybe I will change my mind, once I decide to increase my budget haha

  28. I love Paris. I’ve also stayed at the Le Méridien when I was in Paris. I usually stay in Airbnb’s now when I go. I loved this post!

  29. I like that you’ve featured boutique hotels, I always feel they have a more personal touch compared to chains. De Nesle seems like my kind of hotel!

  30. I went the airbnb studio route when visiting Paris, but these hotels look equisitte. The view of the arc de triomphe from Hotel Splendid Etoile is unparalleled. I’ll have to keep these in mind when I go back – which I will, as it’s one of my favorite cities!

  31. I’d love to be able to afford to stay at the Paris Ritz one day! But until then, I’ll stick with the cheaper boutique hotels haha. From this list, it seems like Paris has tons of great options!!

  32. I had no idea about the arrangement of Paris’s neighborhoods or the fact that they are numbered! Your pictures in this post are really well-shot and give a good idea of the atmosphere in each hotel. You’ve also been to so many and must be an expert by now! Hotel De Nesle looks like my kind of place, especially since it’s budget friendly!

  33. Paris truly is one of my favorite cities in Europe and this post will defiantly be too much help when finding proper accommodation during my next trip. The HOXTON HOTEL looks like a very beautiful boutique hotel with a excellent location, will defiantly keep that in mind until next time i visit Paris.

  34. Nice places! My top pick would definitely be the Paris Ritz. I just got back about 2 1/2 weeks ago. We stayed at a Marriott property which was nice but it was too far from the city and in more of a residential part of town.

  35. Reading through this post was like refreshing my memories. I remember seeing a few during my trip to Paris. Some of them are very popular among tourists. Paris Ritz is lovely. I had stayed in a boutique hotel though.

  36. I love Paris. However, lately I have not been spending enough time in the city. I just use the city to get in and get out. But this time I plan to spend a few days there. Your most came at the right time. I am traveling to Paris this weekend and I am yet to book my stay. I am excited to check out HOTEL MONTHOLON. I love boutique properties and its location is ideal.
