The 6 Best Budget Hotels in Paris

It is possible to stay in Paris and not pay the earth, but don't expect too much from your budget hotel. Even the best budget hotels in Paris don’t all have power showers, sound proofing, air conditioning and double glazing.

This is especially worth bearing in mind if you are visiting in high summer, when Paris can be stifling and the streets noisy, with the clatter of cafe tables outside and street cleaning in the early morning…

But our Gurus are here to help you make the best of any holiday, so they’ve carefully collated a list of the best budget hotels in Paris. The ones which are simple, friendly and family run. You’ll find many of their choices for the best budget hotels in Paris on the Rive Gauche in Saint Germain des Prés or the Latin Quarter.
