Familia Hotel exterior, one of the cheap hotels in Paris

The pleasant Familia Lodge, one in every of our prime price range lodge picks.

Whoa. Let me repeat that… whoa. Are you experiencing a little bit sticker shock whereas trying to find resorts in Paris? The town has gotten actually costly, n’est-ce pas?

I do know, touring to Paris has by no means been precisely low cost, however there have all the time been methods to make it extra reasonably priced. Heck, my submit on 50 methods to avoid wasting in your journey to Paris breaks down little suggestions and tips for saving on meals, museums, getting round, and so forth. However the metropolis’s lodge charges have not too long ago gone by way of the roof.

We must always know — my workforce and I’ve been obsessively visiting, reviewing, and rating one of the best price range resorts in Paris since 2001, once I launched the location with the mission of serving to vacationers discover the perfect central resorts in Paris which might be truly reasonably priced. We’ve seen charming resorts open, shut, get rebooted as non-public condo leases, rebrand themselves as 4-star resorts. We’ve seen all of it.

However post-COVID, we’ve seen a few of our all-time favourite price range resorts shut, and others have remodeled themselves into one thing a lot, way more costly. (Satirically, the charges may double, however the location and room dimension all the time keep the identical!) And we perceive, to a sure diploma. Working a lodge was practically unimaginable for just a few years, and revenues have to be recouped.

Nonetheless, over the previous three years we’ve seen lots of our favourite (previously) budget-friendly resorts swing from providing rooms for about €125-150 an evening to greater than €250 an evening.

Fortuitously, there are nonetheless some resorts in central Paris with nice service and reasonably priced charges. We’ve spent just a few weeks combing by way of and updating all of our Paris lodge listings, and testing charges to unravel what remains to be an awesome deal.

From these areas you may stroll or take a fast Metro journey to almost all of Paris’s important museums and points of interest.

Common room charge

Are charges cheaper than different resorts of the identical class? To find out the “common double charge,” we compiled and averaged charges for a double room in June, July, August and October of 2023.

This one was particularly arduous, as room charges have skyrocketed throughout town. Most of our prime picks have a median room charge underneath $150 per evening, whereas some really particular resorts go as excessive as $225. Above that quantity simply can’t fairly thought-about “price range”. We’ve rounded up resorts with a number of the greatest charges within the metropolis.

High quality

Room dimension

(I imply… practically all lodge rooms in Paris are tiny, however we’re not less than in a position to see who the outliers are!) In Paris, we discovered the typical lodge room spans round 129 to 140 sq. toes (about 12 to 13 sq. meters). Among the smallest rooms squeeze in beds, desks, and even loos in underneath 100 sq. toes, which makes the bigger rooms (over 200 sq. toes) really feel extraordinarily spacious.

“Particular one thing”

Does this lodge supply one thing particular that distinguishes it from its rivals? Does it have a particular theme, attention-grabbing homeowners, or fascinating historical past? Once we’re reviewing resorts, we’re all the time searching for this “one thing particular.”

And at last, we additionally go along with our personal instincts. We’ve visited and inspected resorts tons of of occasions in Paris. We’re together with resorts on this listing that we like and really feel needs to be shared with our readers!
