Best areas for a trip in Paris

For us, for a romantic or family stay in Paris, the ideal is to sleep in these two areas:

Why? In these areas you actually feel that you are in Paris, and also from here you can easily visit the main monuments of the capital. There are of course other neighborhoods to sleep in Paris, such as the Marais, for example, but for us the best are the higher-up areas.

To avoid. The areas near the Eiffel Tower or towards Montmartre are certainly nice places, but not very practical for visits. Montmartre has much more charm than the area near the Eiffel Tower. However, if you want to visit other great monuments of Paris, this is not ideal if it is your first trip in Paris.

Good addresses and places

Here are some addresses where to sleep in Paris as a couple or with the family at an affordable price. We will start with the hotels found on booking in Paris, then we will talk about the AirBnB apartments.

2.1. Hotels where to stay in Paris for a romantic trip

  • For those who prefer the old, there is the Hotel Luxembourg Parc, a stone’s throw from the Jardin du Luxembourg. Top neighborhood, spacious rooms (18m2), but a 4-star hotel with rather high prices.
  • In the most modern, there is the hotel La Villa Madame, the perfect place to sleep in Paris as a couple. Likewise, the district is ideal for discovering Paris, as well as for visiting without having to struggle too much with transport.
  • A 5-minute walk from the Louvre, the Hotel Crayon by Elegancia offers great value for money: less than 130 euros per night in this area! Modern decor, clean, and super well located. This is one of the best hotels we have found.

2.2. Hotels where to stay in Paris with the family

  • Not far from the Paris Opera and the Louvre, the Hotel Choiseul Opera has rooms for 4 people for less than 180 euros per night. Flawless!
  • With an old/modern decoration, you can have a family room for 3 people in the Hotel Bonaparte. The location is perfect. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy the Jardin du Luxembourg and easily discover other places on foot.

2.3. Nice apartments on AirBnB in Paris

Apartments on AirBnB can also be a good solution for sleeping in Paris, but there are 2 flaws, according to less. The downside of Parisian apartments, of course not all, is the noise from neighbors (we’ve experienced it, and it’s really a hassle). The second fault is the prices: I find that they are not necessarily cheaper than hotels. In order to choose your apartment, check the reviews and the location carefully to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Here are the apartments that I found nice with affordable prices (for Paris…):

  • A nice duplex apartment with 3 beds and a bedroom.
  • A cozy apartment for 4, very well located for visits, but also for going out in the evening.

Visit Paris differently. I wrote a special article on unusual Paris: original activities, unusual visits, neighborhood and hidden and little-known alleys… Here it is: Discover Paris differently.


That was our little advice for choosing the neighborhood and the hotel where to sleep in Paris. Hope you will enjoy your stay in Paris and above all make the most of it!
