We are officially in spring! To celebrate this, I thought you all might be interested in a Paris week. Paris in the springtime, what’s not to like!
You’re in for a treat (well I hope you think so) and posts about
- stylish yet affordable hotels
- how to live like a local in fab rentals
- best secret addresses for eating, munching and entertaining kids
- featured hotels with great photos
Today, we start with the affordable yet stylish hotels.
Forget the clichés, Paris is affordable
I’m always surprised when my foreign friends complain about Paris prices. After living in London and New York, I know that this is unfair. You can really have a fab holiday in Paris on a decent budget and it doesn’t have to be grotty hotels.
I had previously listed several affordable and stylish hotels and it’s really a pleasure to add more to that list today.
- 19 bedrooms
- From 102 Euros
In the Alesia area, South of Paris, Hotel Max has the unusual benefit of a green patio. Some rooms also have a private terrace with nice view over the Paris roofs. It’s a non smoking hotel.
- From 90 Euros
- Room for 3 or 4 people available for families
The people behind this hotel are expanding regularly and adding new outposts (more on this later this week). They have found the combination of Parisian flair with relaxing touch, good for young people but not too trendy that older ones wouldn’t feel confortable there. Well located if you arrive by Eurostar as well, it’s an easy tube journey away.
- From 120 euros
- 27 Bedrooms
This comfortable hotel has more of a guest-house atmosphere with its colourful pop art decor and designer style. The Crayon is a special sort of guest-house: the residence of a Parisian artist who invites you to enjoy a very colourful stay
Paris Montparnasse Hotel
- From 170 Euros
- 37 rooms
This is a bit more expensive, but this hotel is well located and has rooms for 3 or 4 people so perfect for families. The decor is more focused on charm and coziness and less on trend but it still makes for a welcoming place to stay at.
