Paris Travel Planner   Saving on Hotels in Paris, France
Paris hotels are not expensive—for what you get, and where you are—if you're smart about how you spend your money on hotels.

Paris has a reputation for being expensive for visitors, but here's the good news:

Paris is not any more expensive than most major cities—and cheaper than some—if you know how to buy.

Hotel rooms in the center of major cities are expensive, and Paris is no exception, but keep these points in mind:

Tax & Service Included

Taxes and service charges are included in the room price quoted to you. They will not be added to your bill when you check out. Compare this to New York City, where a service charge and up to four different taxes and fees may swell your bill by as much as 18% to 20% when you check out.

Discounts Available

You can request a discount if you plan to stay more than a few days (usually more than three days). For weekly, bi-weekly or monthly stays, discounts are definitely in order.

Rent an Apartment/Flat

Staying a week or more, you'll probably get much better value for money by renting an apartment. We regularly rent spacious, fully-equipped two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments for the same nightly cost as a double room in a 3-star hotel.

Stay Farther Out

Staying at a hotel out of the center, perhaps near the airport, and commuting to the center by Métro and/or RER trains, may save you a substantial amount. In fact, if you have a rail pass, you can even stay in a smaller, cheaper city away from Paris and commute to the center daily.

Stay at a Hostel

Staying at a youth or travelers' hostel can cost very little, and you could be right in the center of everything. More...
