Despite its size and the abundance of hotels available, finding the ideal lodging in Paris can be a daunting task. From tiny rooms that easily top over 300 euros a night to more budget options that put you an hour out from the main sights you’re hoping to see, booking the right Parisian hotel can require some effort. Whether you’re looking for a high-end luxury hotel or something historic in the center of Paris, here are a couple lesser known secret Parisian hotels.
This budget-friendly hotel near Musee d’Orsay offers guests a look into Paris’ artistic past and is considered a bit of an institution. Pissarro’s famed paintings of Paris on the Seine were completed here, and the Hotel du Quai Voltaire has welcomed such distinguished guests as Wagner during its tenure. Expect small rooms and some traffic noise, but for under 200 euros a night and some of the best views in Paris, it’s worth it.
Truly a secret with no sign, lobby or staff, the One by the Five is located in Paris’ Latin Quarter. It’s been voted one of the most romantic hotels in Paris and once you step inside, you will see why. The idea is for guests to succumb to their imagination and the design and amenities are aimed at enhancing the senses. Delicate fragrances, plush interiors, and suspended beds -- all part of the unique world One by the Five offers its guests.
Which of these lesser known hotels appeals most to you?
