I am starting a new series on the blog that is Paris on a Budget. Accommodations can be the most expensive part of trip planning even more than the flight. Once you have the flight booked, you will need to sort out accommodations. All of these hotels are under $200. I tried to find as many spots that were rated well but were still budget friendly closer to $125/$150. Location is always a factor. You can see the map below to narrow down your selection if there is a certain area you want to be based.
If there are hotels you have stayed at that you would recommend that are under $200 feel free to leave them in the comments below so we can share with other readers.
I hope you enjoy the new series and this allows the trip planning process to be easier and more approachable when it comes to budget.
Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais is probably the Boutique Hotel I recommend the most to readers. It is located in the Marais and is priced around $150/night. I stayed here a few years ago and loved my time here. I had a room facing the street and a tiny window where I could have breakfast. You can take breakfast downstairs in the basement but I chose to have it delivered to the room. The whole breakfast for one person was 12 euros and is still the best value of breakfast I have seen in Paris. Pastries, juice, yogurt, coffee, cheese, and a newspaper. You can't go wrong and the location is ideal for those who love the Marais.
Hôtel Bass is located on Rue des Abbesses in Montmartre close to the border of the 9th/18th arrondissements. This is a great location for exploring Montmartre and the neighborhood of Sopi. I lived just 10 minutes from here in 2013 and this area has grown so much since. Rooms are just 100 euros and a great value. Photo via Hotels.com/Hôtel Bass
Located in the 10th arrondissement, this Boutique Hotel has rooms starting at 97 euros a night. There are several room options going from a single room to the apartment which has rooftop views, a tub, and room for up to 3 people. The courtyard and lobby are great spots for meeting with friends, brunch, or catching up on work. You may recognize the courtyard from Instagram feeds.
Hotel Grands Boulevards is on the pricier end of the budget hotels. You can find a room closer to $200 per night. The hotel is Instagram friendly you may notice some of the images from your favorite bloggers spending time in Paris. I have not stayed here but wouldn't hesitate in booking a night or two here. It is a 4 star hotel centrally located in the heart of the city which makes most of the city walkable. Unless you are right by the Eiffel Tower, I always feel that is one spot that might not be walkable. You can easily hop on the metro or grab an Uber.
I discovered Hotel Royal Madeleine a few weeks back while doing blog research. This hotel was set to open this Summer but it was delayed. It should be opening early Fall. I have recommended this place to a few friends and I would love the opportunity to stay here. It is located in the heart of the 8th arrondissement and recently went under a remodel. The hotel looks fantastic and the price is right at $160-$180 per night.
I had the opportunity to stay at Adèle and Jules twice and loved the experience. It is made up of two buildings, one is Adèle and one is Jules. The staff is helpful with restaurant recommendations and activities in the neighborhood. There is breakfast in the lobby along with tea time and an honesty bar. The street the hotel is situated on is a quiet family street. You will sleep soundly and comfortably. The rooms are a bit pricier than the above Boutique Hotels but this one will still come in under $200. Room 42 is the room I stayed in and had plenty of room for two people. Great for couples or friends.
