    Default Budget Hotels in Paris

    Ever wondered where to stay in Paris? With all those different arrondisements/districts to choose from it's hard to know. Whenever I feel the urge to visit the most beautiful city on earth, I like to stay in or near the Montmartre district.

    Why? Because it's central and because it's got somewhat of a 'village' atmosphere. I love all the little shops, cafes, restaurants and the general ambiance of the place. Visit Sacre Coeur Basilica, the Mouline Rouge, watch artists go about their stuff or simply people watch from a cozy cafe.

    What about prices? Although Paris is not the cheapest place on earth, you don't have to break the bank to stay there.

    There are plenty of good, clean and well located 2 star hotels to choose from, starting it around €50 for a single. Often, if you book these places online (via the hotel website rather than the sites that simply list the hotel, then rake in a hefty commission for doing so).

    Here's a couple of great examples:

    It's important to find a cool place to stay. After all, it's part of the whole experience. And nobody really wants to stay in a dump. Least of all, people on a budget.
    A bientot!

    Montmartre is a nice area indeed, especially a few steps away from the tourist crowds, although there are several other interesting and vibrant locations in Paris. Maybe they are not as popular - or known - as some over-rated inner districts, but just as lively and attractive, and have more of a real Parisian feel. Consider also the Canal Saint-Martin, Republique, Bastille and Oberkampf areas, or Montparnasse.
    These areas tend to be cheaper as well, although €50 for a room might be difficult to get in a decent place. I would consider €80 still reasonable or even 'budget' in Paris - and you can get a really nice double in a nice hotel for that.
    A stylish place in this range that I know is Hotel Aberotel in Montparnasse.

    A very ambient, tranquil haven in a quiet pocket of otherwise busy Montparnasse. You don't need to leave the district to have fun.

    These forums don't look very active - why? Anyway, maybe the thread will start rolling.
    I browsed through my diaries and notes, checked the websites again, and listed a few more nice budget hotels in different parts of Paris.
    Hotel Damremont, in Montmartre - http://damremont-paris-hotel.com/
    Hotel Annexe, at Republique - http://annexe-paris-hotel.com/
    Hotel Beaugrenelle Saint Charles, in the 15th relatively close to the Eiffel Tower - http://beaugrenelleparis.com/
    Hotel de Blois, in Montparnasse - http://hoteldeblois.com/
    Ouest Hotel, close to the Opera and department stores - http://ouest-hotel-paris.com/
    I hope others will also contribute…
