Just in time for Spring/ Summer: 10 Hotels in Paris For Under $300

It’s always a great time to go to Paris but its even better now. Believe it or not, Europe’s fiscal crisis is actually making Paris and Parisians a nicer place to visit. With so many less tourists, the city is calmer, the museums less full and you can even find a seat at a cafe.
Now all you need is a god deal on a neighborhood hotel. Here’s a list straight from the horses mouth—the hippest fashionistas, the most well-traveled Francophiles all say these are the best places to go if you really want to see Paris as it  should be seen. Divided by neighborhoods here’s the list you need to keep in your files.  And…remember that global hotel prices are rising so make sure to read our article about hotel prices here.

ST.-GERMAIN-DES-PRÉS

so sweet

so sweet

Hôtel de l’Abbaye Once a 17th-century abbey, and now a small private hotel.  Four two-story suites  have French windows that overlook the medieval church of St.-Sulpice.  www.hotel-abbaye.com

hotel-de-buci

hotel-de-buci

Hôtel Buci Latin The 27-room Buci Latin, is a fun, if outright wacky, place to stay. Smack in the middle of a food and cheese district, it’s the place to be during fashion season, when the hotel is mobbed with editors, photographers, and designers.www.hotel-buci.com

hotel-duc-de-saint-simon-paris

hotel-duc-de-saint-simon-paris

Hôtel Duc de St.-Simon For many old school fashionistas and actresses, the Ritz is not an option. Its the  St.-Simon or nothing. A stay at the 34-room hotel is like living in the 18th-century town house of your dreams.  From the entrance courtyard, the pansy-filled window boxes, and female staffers in their sharp uniforms, this is the hotel that whispers elegance. 14 Rue de St.-Simon. www.hotelducdestsimon.com


hotel-luxembourg

hotel-luxembourg

Hôtel Luxembourg Parc With its classic Louis XV style, fine linens, and generous bathrooms, the 23-room hotel is a small-scale version of the Hôtel de Crillon, one of Pari’s most luxurious hotels. There’s also the  24-hour room service, which, when available, is actually takeout from nearby restaurants. www.hotelluxparc.com

Hôtel Le St.-Grégoire

Hôtel Le St.-Grégoire

Hôtel Le St.-Grégoire Designer  hotels in Paris can take themselves way too seriously which is why the 20-room St.-Grégoire is so precious. The couple who run the place  look as if they don’t need to work, they do it with grace.  www.hotelsaintgregoire.com;

Hôtel des Saints-Pères

Hôtel des Saints-Pères

Hôtel des Saints-Pères Affordable, yet distinguished (it had once been the private residence of Daniel Gittard, Louis XIV’s architect), and its Left Bank address ensures you’re in the right spot to people watch. The 39 rooms now have high-speed Internet access and well-stocked mini-bars, but there are some additional services like their attentive staff delivers petit déjeuner to writers who work in bed till noon; afternoon tea is offered in the palm-filled winter garden. The high-ceilinged Chambre à la Fresque—with a stunning 17th-century fresco—remains the most coveted guest room. 65 Rue des Saints-Pères.

hotel verneuil

hotel verneuil

Hôtel Verneuil Romantic, stylish and in the  heart-of-Rive-Gauche —the Flore and Deux Magots are your local cafés—the hotel is housed in a handsome 17th-century building with hand-hewn beams, the Verneuil is owned and run by Sylvie de Lattre who revamped Hôtel Thérèse across the Seine. www.hotelverneuil.com

Hôtel La Villa St.-Germain-des-Prés

Hôtel La Villa St.-Germain-des-Prés

Hôtel La Villa St.-Germain-des-Prés Fashion-forward La Villa attracts an artsy crowd to this side street lined with antiques shops. Designer Jean-Philippe Nuel makes a statement with leather headboards, brushed- steel lights, angular sofas, and red marble bathrooms in the 31 guest rooms. Swoop down the spiral stair to the breakfast room for a brioche and chocolat chaud before hitting the stores; afterward, hang in the soigné lounge with a champagne cocktail. www.villa-saintgermain.com.

OPÉRA

Hôtel Victoires Opéra

Hôtel Victoires Opéra

Hôtel Victoires Opéra On a white-tiled pedestrian street in the heart of the shopping district, you’ll find a chic combination of old and new Paris—a glammed-up crowd glides past butcher shops and organic markets, nouvelle monde wineshops and classic cafés. Rooms at the Victoires Opéra have a chocolate palette of velveteen and dark wood; ask for one with a view of the never-ending street life (double-glazed windows block out most of the noise). The hotel caters to the style-conscious: room prices rise slightly during the fashion shows, and even the maids are sometimes dressed to kill in short skirts and red patent-leather sandals. 56 Rue Montorgueil, Second Arr.; 33-1/42-36-41-08, fax 33-1/45-08-08-79; www.hotelvictoiresopera.com; doubles from $186.

THE MARAIS

Hôtel Axial Beaubourg

Hôtel Axial Beaubourg

Hôtel Axial Beaubourg For years, this 39-room hotel had little in common with the cutting-edge galleries and funky bars around it. The charming Véronique Turmel, whose family has owned the property since 1918, came to the rescue last year. Retaining the original exposed beams— and—stone structure, Jean-Philippe Nuel created a medieval-minimal look: white walls, bronzed sconces, wenge-wood furniture. The breakfast “cave” is anything but—with smart mocha slipcovered chairs and sea-grass matting on È the floor. Though it reopened barely eight months ago, fashionistas who wouldn’t have been caught dead here before are now fighting for reservations. 11 Rue du Temple, Fourth Arr.; 33-1/42-72-72-22, fax 33-1/42-72-03-53; www.axialbeaubourg.com; doubles from $114.

Hôtel du Bourg Tibourg

Hôtel du Bourg Tibourg

Hôtel du Bourg Tibourg Almost over-the-top decor with a slightly  Gothic edge, the Bourg Tibourg was designed by the Costes’ Jacques Garcia. Its usually booked though, thanks to the property’s high profile with the style tribe and the Marais setting. Still, do what you can to book a room, you won’t find more visual bang for your euro anywhere else in the city. www.hoteldubourgtibourg.com.

Hôtel Caron de Beaumarchais

Hôtel Caron de Beaumarchais

Hôtel Caron de Beaumarchais Named for the playwright who lived up the street at No. 47 while he wrote The Marriage of Figaro, you feel like you’ve entered the 18th-century. Chandeliers hang above a rare 1792 piano in the lobby, rooms are decorated with original engravings from antique editions of Beaumarchais’s plays outfit the 19 rooms, along with beamed ceilings, gilded mirrors, and rich French fabrics. www.carondebeaumarchais.com
