One of the things that makes Paris so special is the variety of neighborhoods (known as arrondissements) you can explore. Each arrondissement (there are 20) houses its own share of tourist sights and its own personality.
There are so many options of where to stay in Paris, it can certainly be overwhelming trying to decide not only what area to stay in, but also what accommodation to book. I would definitely give some consideration to the neighborhood you choose to stay in as you’ll want to be based close to the sights you want to visit. My personal favorite neighborhoods to stay in are St. Germain and the Marais, but there are amazing options all over the city.
Below I’ve provided a list of hotel recommendations. I obviously haven’t stayed in all of these locations, but I have only included recommendations from people with similar travel tastes to my own and all of you! I also want to point out that with the availability of Airbnb, One Fine Stay, and Paris Perfect – there are a lot of options to stay in someone’s home and pretend to be a Parisian for a week if that sounds enticing to you!

Hotel des Grandes Ecoles in the 5th is wonderful. Not expensive! I’ve gone there for 15 years, and it’s also in the book by Inès de la Fressange.

Hi, this is a great blog post! It’s a shame I didn’t come across it a few months ago as it would have helped me a lot. I recently came back from a week in Paris and it was incredible 🙂 We stayed at an Ibis south of the city in the 15 Arrondissements near the Metro stop Porte de Vanves and it was a great price and the located was perfect for our stay! If you are interested or have some free time check out my blog post about our Paris trip: http://fleurdubelle.blogspot.com/2018/08/our-week-in-paris-photo-diary-part-one.html
