Paris Triple Hotel Rooms - Pricing List - 2004
Hi All! I've been doing some research attempting to get the best available pricing info for my family for an upcoming trip to Paris (we need triple/family rooms or comparable) and thought I'd share the benefit of my price-gathering efforts. Where applicable, I've included the cost of the hotel breakfast set inside parentheses.

I also have this on Word document if anyone needs a copy. Just e-mail me.

Hope this helps all you info gatherers out there!

very helpful.
Are these places recommended in message boards like this one, or
I've read good things about several of them like the Champs de Mar, Jeanne d'Arc, etc but several of them are new to me.

Keren Feb 26th, 2004 07:01 AM

Hotel de Blois is a 1 star in the 14th that is recommended in Let's Go and Lonely Planet, and has gotten great reviews on

grantop Feb 26th, 2004 07:31 AM

Great information - thanks for sharing. We don't require 'family' rooms, but I am keeping your list as a nice group of reasonably priced hotels for future trip planning. Thanks!

grantop Feb 26th, 2004 07:38 AM

Beatchick - the prices you list are in dollars, but I am assuming that you meant Euros? Thanks again for posting the information, it's now part of my Paris files.

grandmere Feb 26th, 2004 08:06 AM

You might want to add:
Hotel du Lys
125 Euro for triple, breakfast included
rue Serpente, 6th

WillTravel Feb 26th, 2004 08:07 AM

Beatchick, a great list. Do you know if any of these have air conditioning?

Beatchick Mar 1st, 2004 09:04 AM

Hey Elaine! I think most of the ones mentioned are from the "Charming Small Hotel Guides" series by the Duncans. I've been waiting to get an updated version of this guide but when I bought one last year it was exactly the same as the one I'd bought a few years earlier. They haven't even updated the prices to euros yet. Oy vey! So, hence the updated list! The others are Youth Hostels that I'd done some research on. These just looked like the prettiest, nicest ones in pretty good areas.

Yeah, Keren, I think I'm going to go with the Hotel des Blois for my family this Christmas. It looks very charming & the cost is extremely reasonable. I love the history of the 14th, too. Plus, they have fax & e-mail access as well as some other amenities we like.

You're welcome, Grantop! I'm glad someone finds it useful!! And, yes, that was supposed to be in euros. Yikes.

Oooh, thanks, Grandmere. I appreciate the update. Cool beans!

Actually, WillTravel, I'm not sure. I'll have to do some checking. Now you've got me started on ANOTHER list!! ;)

jay Mar 1st, 2004 10:27 AM

add the hotel excelsior i think it was 79e?

Beatchick Mar 1st, 2004 11:30 AM

Jay, do you have any other info for the Excelsior? Maybe the address? Or a website?

Laurie Mar 1st, 2004 08:47 PM

Hi Beatchick,
My family of 3 is staying at the Hotel de France Invalides for 104 Euros per night.
It is located in the 7th arr. near the Ecole Militaire Metro stop.

The room includes a mini bar, and is very close to a grocery store.

Keren Mar 1st, 2004 10:15 PM

Beatchick, how did you manage to get a website for Hotel de Blois? I've searched a lot and couldn't find one. You can also take a look at Residence les Goblins, I haven't stayed there, but it has received excellent reviews everywhere I looked. I was just going to book it for my May trip, but then needed to change my plans unexpectedly (how unfortunate!), and will try to book it for September.

Beatchick Mar 2nd, 2004 07:52 AM

Laurie, I think that's the one StCirq touts on this board. She really loves it. And it's in a really great area. Here's the website for that hotel. It's very reasonable and it has internet connection. Have you seen the bar & salon areas?

Ar ar ar, Keren!! I wrote them a letter last week & they sent me an e-mail 2/23 with the link. Like you, I'd been trying forever to find a website. I called them last year prior to my last trip & spoke to madam but it was on a Sunday, she was the only one there & spoke no English. And, of course, I can't speak French well enough to carry on a phone conversation overseas!! So I gave up and opted for the Jeanne d'Arc instead. Needless to say, I'm very happy to have heard from them this year!!

Beatchick Mar 2nd, 2004 11:17 AM

Jay just e-mailed me the website URL for the Excelsior located at 20, rue Cujas in the 5th:

Pricing for a triple is 92 euros, 95 for a quad & 108 for a suite. Breakfast is 6 euros.

Thank you, Jay! :)

Laurie Mar 2nd, 2004 08:10 PM

Hi Beatchick, Yes, the Hotel de France Invalides is the one that St. Cirq recommends. We are looking forward to our stay there! The website has beautiful pictures!

We stayed in this area last summer, so I know that we will like it. It will feel like we are coming home! Thank you for your comments. Laurie

Beatchick Mar 3rd, 2004 05:15 AM

Oh, yeah, Laurie, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! :)

WillTravel Mar 3rd, 2004 08:14 AM

Rough Guides recommends the Hotel Marignan in the 5th.
This place has rooms for up to five people.

Beatchick Mar 4th, 2004 05:56 AM

WillTravel, thanks for the tip. That is great website. Very informative. I like the style of the place and the location is SUPERB!

Beatchick Mar 4th, 2004 01:39 PM

WillTravel, I just searched all the websites but I didn't see any mention air conditioning. So I've e-mailed them all. If I get a positive response from any I'll post here. :)

WillTravel Mar 4th, 2004 01:43 PM

Beatchick, I should have mentioned that I emailed the Village Hostel a while back and asked about A/C. They said they did not have it, but hoped to get it in the public areas.

Beatchick Mar 5th, 2004 04:55 AM

WillTravel, regarding the Village Hostel, they sent me a strange reply:
"Regarding your question, we only have winter air conditioning facilities." So I e-mailed them for clarification! :D

I've received negatives from the following:
3 Ducks Hostel
Hotel du Lys
Hotel Langlois
Hotel Caulaincourt Square
Hotel Champ de Mars

Hotel du Lys sent this as an explanation:
"We have no air conditioning, the house is from the 17th with very thick walls, it's really fresh in summer, we don't need it."


Beatchick Mar 5th, 2004 05:48 AM

Just received a negative for the Hotel des Blois.

Beatchick Mar 5th, 2004 01:09 PM

Negative replies received from Village Hostel, Young & Happy Youth Hostel, Hotel des 3 Colleges. Just wanted to add that I already know that Hotel Degres de Notre Dame & Jeanne D'Arc do not have a/c.

WillTravel Mar 5th, 2004 09:12 PM

I got a negative response re air conditioning from Hotel Champ de Mars a couple weeks ago.

WillTravel Mar 16th, 2004 09:15 PM

Beatchick, I happened to see these on the Frommers site:

Beatchick Mar 18th, 2004 08:05 AM

WillTravel, that's a good list - thanks!!

I just got updated info for one of my faves. Look, they now have a website & e-mail:

Great list; I'm researching for July 2005 so air conditioning is important.

Hotel du Champ de Mar - be careful families, the rooms are EXTREMELY small. But, the hotel is in a nice, quiet, safe area. I would be hesitant to pack a family into one room - yikes!

To_Paris Jun 30th, 2005 06:32 AM

This is a great site - although a year old.

We are looking for a triple room in the 5th, 6th or 7th.

We're looking for A/C, non smoking, shower and true beds (not cot). Would love charm and perhaps a view.

Our price range has expanded since I first posted earlier this month - up to 170Euros -
($200) of course we prefer to spend less (more money then for meals, tours, etc.).

I've been writing to hotels, some with replies, some without. It has been hard to get a second email answered with specific room questions.

I did post Paris Hotel info here earlier... but, finding this specific triple thread, I thought I'd post again and see what I find out :-)

SO - if anyone has stayed in a triple and can recommend, I'd much appreciate.

Or, if you stayed somewhere and I should write and inquire about a triple, I'd appreciate that too.

Many thanks

Ronda Jun 30th, 2005 04:41 PM

For when did you need a room? I booked our room probably in January for July. We are staying in a triple (3 beds) at Hotel Muguet for 140 euros. We are also staying for 3 nights in the 17th at Hotel Banville for 180 (triple room). Many of the hotels are having special rates for August.

travlintoes Jun 30th, 2005 05:58 PM

A great hotel in the 10th is the Francais Hotel. Close to the Gare de l'Est, about 10 minutes from Montmare, close to buses and underground. Go to site through Venere. Stayed there for 5 days in 2003--had a triple. Our room faced the street and had a little balconey. Area is bussling during the day and night too. Several small restaurants around the corner. Was about 130-140 euros per night for the triple---ac included!! Check it out just for the info--you just might find you like it! Oh yes, all ensuite and nicely furnished, decent size rooms. Address is 13 Rue du 8 Mai 1945 75010 Paris. 8 euros bought a great breakfast. Entire hotel (what I saw) was very clean, neat, and nicely appointed. Multilingual, friendly staff and desk personnel. Have any of you stayed there yet?

MaureenB Jun 30th, 2005 06:50 PM

Our family of four was quite comfortable at the Hotel la Bourdonnais, on a tree-lined boulevard in the 7th. We even had a balcony with a view of the Eiffel Tower. Ask about room 503. The hotel has a lift and A/C. It is charming and in a great location, walking distance to the Tower, Les Invalides, and Rue Cler around the corner. A small grocery market next door, too. No mini-bar in the room, though. Breakfast was an additional 11 EU, I think, but we always walked to Rue Cler instead.

Click on my name above for my trip report of London-Paris-Amsterdam and specifics about the hotel and restaurants we liked in Paris.

I just stayed in a triple at the Hotel Muguet, actually two different rooms ( #41 and #51) end of May and middle of June. My two friends and I were very pleased with the rooms. They had two beds in a normal sized room and a third real bed in an alcove. Two good sized closets and a fairly large bathroom with tub and shower. And we had a lovely view of the Eiffel Tower from both rooms. I don't think you can beat it for the price (140 euros).

Only problem, To_Paris, if you're looking for this summer, I'd be very surprised if these rooms were still available. Good luck!

Ronda, I hope you enjoy your stay at the Muguet as much as we did.

okoshi2002 Jun 30th, 2005 11:36 PM

We just returned from Paris ( family with 2 teenagers). After research I concluded two rooms for the four of us gave us the most for our money- we stayed at the Hotel de College du France on Thenard near Sorbonne which is in the Latin Quarter. The two rooms in this small hotel gave us one double and two twins, two bathrooms, right across the hall from each other. The rate was 92 Euro per room. The location was great, near several metro stops, defintely within walking distnce of all major sites, and a wonderful bistro right across the street, as well as shops for pastry, butcher, wine shop all within a few blocks.

Morganne Jul 1st, 2005 02:29 AM

Have a look also at Hotel paris Bercy, a 1 star hotel that have triple rooms for about 72 euros...Hotel is very clean, located in the 12th near Bastille area, staff management is helmful and friendly...Metro stop is Daumesnil, there are 2 metro lines passing there...
Not too touristy area...I found it great!

Digbydog Jul 20th, 2005 01:42 PM

In June, we stayed at the Hotel Le Clement in the 6th. We had a nice triple (the third bed was in a separate small room). Thankfully, there was A/C, as Paris was in the middle of a heat wave. The room was very attractively decorated with toile on the walls. The hotel is right off Blvd. St. Germaine, but was on a very quiet street. Our room was 145 euros. We really liked it and will stay there again.

kwren Sep 10th, 2005 10:28 AM

Digbydog (or anyone else) - maybe I missed it somewhere, but does Hotel le Clement have an elevator?

klondike Sep 10th, 2005 03:26 PM

Yes it does. It is one of those "small" kind that two people or one person plus a big suitcase fit into.
