Hotels with Character in Paris

Katie spent ages doing some research on hotels in Paris for a friend who is going on honeymoon. They are in the range 100-150 euro range, are independent and each has a character of its own.

Hotel Grandes Ecoles
113-138 Euros. Breakfast extra. Private parking 30 euros per day.
Latin Quarter. Very ‘french’ style – full on floral wallpapers, antique style beds. lovely looking courtyard garden. Is probably likely to be very busy. Gets good reviews, with people getting a bit anxious about booking it – so take special care about confirmation with this one I guess.

Hotel Chat Noir
About 160 euros. Breakfast extra.
Pigalle area – down the hill from Montmartre – it is the red light district, so perhaps not ideal! People say good things about it though, and it looks contemporary & quite stylish.

Hotel du Petit Moulin
From 190 euros. Breakfast extra. Free private parking.
Marais area. Design by Lacroix. I include this, as I am a bit obsessed with the cool website, and now want to stay there myself!

Hotel Eldorado
50-70 euros. Breakfast extra. Private parking 25 euros per 24hours
Place de Clichy area. ‘shabby chic’, looks a bit more like a B&B than a hotel. nice looking courtyard. ask for a room overlooking the courtyard, not the street. ‘ethnic’ decor.

Hotel Bretonnerie / Hotel Chopin
These 2 hotels share the same website. breakfast extra for both.
Bretonnerie: from 125 euros. Marais area. antique style furnishings, but quite plush/tasteful.
Chopin: 88-102 euros. opera/grand boulevards area. Quite simply furnished. Quiet rooms (none are street facing). bit more ‘budget’.

Hotel Saint Thomas d’Aquin
120-130 euros. breakfast extra. Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Looks nicely furnished, and in a nice area just south of the river on the left bank.

Hotel Therese
From 150 euros. Louvre area, very central. breakfast extra. Contemporary furnishing.
