best paris hotels les piaules
Les Piaules

1. Les Piaules

Staying in a hostel doesn’t have to mean compromising on your travel ideals. Les Piaules, a chic hostel in Belleville that offers both dorms and private bedrooms, is a good option for anyone on a strict budget who still wants the feeling of a boutique hotel. There’s a bar and restaurant onsite, although the area boasts a lot of good dining spots, and the rooftop terrace is a great spot for a cocktail. If you want some privacy, book into “The Cosy One,” a private room with its own bathroom and coffee machine, although the shared dorms are notably well conceived, with built-in power outlets and reading lights in each bunk.

Starting rate: $22 (for a shared room)

Hotel Panache

2. Hotel Panache

There’s a vintage vibe to the decor in Hotel Panache, but the trendy boutique hotel feels comfortable rather than overtly cool. The hotel, which was inspired by the Flatiron Building in New York, has several types of available rooms, including triples and family rooms, and each is well-appointed with a minibar and free Wi-Fi (as well as air conditioning, which is a must in the summer in Paris). There’s also an honesty bar, a library and a restaurant, although the surrounding neighborhood has everything you’ll need. Check the website for special offers when booking, as they’ll often give you a discount for booking direct.

Boutique property Hotel Henriette is all about cool design and intimacy. The hotel, located near the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank, has a courtyard garden, a lounge filled with books and a concierge service to help with restaurant reservations and excursions. Breakfast is available for an extra fee and the hotel is notably family-friendly, with family rooms and cribs available. The rooms come in a variety of sizes (and for a variety of prices) and all have different decor. Opt for a Junior Suite if you want to splurge—the extra space, which includes a writing desk and sitting area, is worth it if you are spending a few days in Paris.

Mama Shelter

4. Mama Shelter

Mama Shelter is the original Paris hipster hotel, featuring achingly cool decor from Philippe Starck and affordable room rates.

The rooms can be quite small (opt for a “Large Mama” if space is a concern), but everything is well thought out, with free Wi-Fi, Skype and Apple TVs at the ready. A second location, Mama Shelter West, will open in the fall featuring a slightly different vibe.

Located in the 9th arrondissement near Pigalle, the property (which is undergoing a renovation until the end of August) is eclectic, with quirky and unique rooms. Each has a slightly different vibe, including one with a disco-covered ceiling, and the Duplex suite is a fun splurge. The Amour Restaurant serves three meals a day, as well as weekend brunch, and includes tables in a garden courtyard filled with greenery. Nearby, there are several cool bars, like Dirty Dick, and a lot of good restaurants (look for Buvette Paris a block away). The hotel’s sister, Grand Hôtel Amour, in the 10th, is also a good bet.

best paris hotels original
Hôtel Original

7. Hôtel Original

No two rooms are alike in Hôtel Original, a quirky boutique hotel near the Bastille. It’s great for groups of friends or families since the hotel, designed by Stella Cadente, offers triple and double rooms (all with whimsical themes and decor), and solo travelers can bunk up in single rooms for a lower rate. It’s low-key, with only breakfast offered for an additional fee, but the area is ideal for those who want to explore the restaurants and cocktail bars of the Marais (look for a nearby hidden bar called Little Red Door). The staff is friendly and helpful, so ask for tips or recommendations, and check for special offers online when booking.

best paris hotels le citizen
Le Citizen Hotel

8. Le Citizen Hotel

Head north along Canal Saint-Martin to find Le Citizen Hotel, a hipster spot with a restaurant that often hosts pop-up eateries throughout the year. The 12 rooms, although slightly compact, overlook the canal, a benefit that shouldn’t be underestimated in a city hotel. There’s also a family suite with two separate bedrooms, perfect for those traveling with kids (or a group of friends). Breakfast is included in the rate, or you can stroll over to iconic nearby bakery Du Pain et des Idées. The neighborhood itself is especially good—close enough to more central areas like the Marais but far enough from the tourist crowds that you feel like you’re discovering something new.

Starting rate: $155

best paris hotels hidden
Hidden Hotel

9. Hidden Hotel

The charm of Hidden Hotel is in the name. The small hotel is nestled in the center of things near the Arc de Triomphe, but out of the way enough to feel like it’s off the beaten path. The guest rooms have names like “Emotion Room” and “Sensation Room,” and each features an ambient, relaxing vibe that offsets the busy streets outside. There’s also a bar, two breakfast areas and a smoking room for those who like a cigar after dinner (although the hotel itself is non-smoking). The location puts you walking distance from the bustling shops of the Champs-Élysées and even the Eiffel Tower, and you’re also not far from all the museums.

Starting rate: $178

Hôtel Monge

Designed to capture the vibe of the 10th arrondissement, the property has brightly colored rooms with amenities like Bluetooth speakers and smart TVs. There are also bicycles available for rent to help get around town. The hotel’s restaurant, NENI, serves up eclectic dishes inspired by Middle Eastern and French cuisine, or you can head to the in-house bar, called Sape Bar, for an evening cocktail.

It’s very artsy and each suite has its own design, which includes unique artwork throughout. The Grand Salon serves breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner, and opens on the weekends for brunch. The best part is the massive walled garden, where you can grab a bite to eat or sip on a cocktail. It’s a favorite with celebrities visiting Paris, but the non-famous will also find the hotel ideal for their stay.

best paris hotels mandarin oriental
Mandarin Oriental Paris

17. Mandarin Oriental Paris

There’s a lot to like about the Mandarin Oriental Paris, from the central location to the lush courtyard to the serene indoor swimming pool. But the real draw is the rooms themselves, which are notably big by Paris standards. Book into a suite, if you have the budget, and be sure to stay on a Sunday, when casual dining spot Camélia puts on a memorable brunch in the courtyard. The hotel is also home to the Michelin-starred experimental restaurant Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx and the chic Bar 8, which includes several outdoor tables. Don’t miss the spa, one of the city’s largest hotel spas, and the expansive, like-new fitness center will help work off all those pastries you ate at brunch.

The rooms—and the bathrooms—are truly opulent and feature butler service as well as nightly turndown and in-room check in. There’s a pool and fitness center for guests who want to stay active, but the Sense spa is where you should find yourself after a busy day of sightseeing.
