Can anyone recommend some affordable hotels in Paris for my boyfriend and I. Nothing too expensive and close to the good attractions. We don't plan on being in the hotel except for sleeping, I'm we're very open minded. THANK YOU

First, search here for "hotels in Paris" and you will find enough suggestions to keep you busy for a long time.

If that doesn't do it for you, repost with your budget, what areas you would like (close to the good attractions is much too vague), and when you are traveling. The more specific you are, the more likely you are to receive responses that suit your needs.

Look at a map, and pick an area. Most folks here like the arrondisements that are closest to the center, and those are numbered 1 through 7.

If you are young, you might like the 4th and 5th. But you need to tell us more about what you like, and what you like to do.

You might want to read an article about how paris hotels are star rated. Go to this website:
and there is an article toward the top called:
"Paris hotels: How to reduce your risk of selecting the wrong hotel".

On this same website they list lots of hotels by area. Then if you click on Paris Hotels, they have a page with more than 100 hotels listed and descriptions of each. This website has lots of useful information about Paris.

If you'd consider a hostel, try one of the type websites, too. There are so many hotels in Paris, it's overwhelming. You will find one if you have enough time to search and plan.
But first, find out what arrondisement you prefer-- maybe the Latin Quarter or near the Sorbonne, where there are twenty-somethings and nightlife? The 7th was our choice, but it's probably the opposite of your younger tastes-- quiet, more residential, and upscale. Paris is wonderful. Be sure to get a hop-on-hop-off pass on the Batobus, a boat that goes to the 8 major sites in Paris. A ride on it a night is a must-do, to see Paris all lit up from the river. It's beautiful.

Hi Jenny,

I suggest you have a look at

You'll find a list of hotels in every arrondissement (district) and in every category, with prices and comments from people who've stayed there.

Good luck and have a nice trip!
