Our selection of places to stay in Paris avoids, as usual, large and mid-sized conventional hotels and concentrates on the small, charming and out of the ordinary. They are more or less evenly distributed on the left and right hand banks of the Seine.Among our long-term favourites are the Le Relais du Louvre, noted for its fair prices. The Langlois is in most respects a perfect charming small hotel, welcoming, comfortable and unpretentiously stylish.
As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Paris offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses (chambres d'hote), restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
We also have a large selection of Paris Restaurants for you to choose from during your time here.
