Know before you go
In a city as large and captivating as Paris, picking where to stay is a matter of strategy. The most convenient home base--and one of the most expensive--is the 1st Arrondissement, whose central location is home to the Louvre, Jardins des Tuileries, and some of the finest hotels in the city. On the flip side, Le Marais or Saint-Germain-des-Pres offer a bit more local character, excellent shopping, and easy access to major cultural landmarks such as Centre Pompidou and Jardins du Luxembourg. While hotels in Paris are rarely cheap, you can find slightly less pricey options around Pigalle (which puts you near nightlife, Montmartre, and the Moulin Rouge) or the 10th Arrondissement, with its multicultural mix restaurants, hip cafes, and two major train stations.

The City of Lights arguably puts on its most dazzling show in the winter, when candlelit cafes and spotlit monuments glow into the long night. (Just try not to swoon when the Eiffel Tower puts on its shimmer effect.) Crowds swell around the Christmas and New Year’s window, though they ease off from January onward.

Take advantage of the thinned-out post-holiday crowds to hit up the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, and Centre Pompidou. This could be your chance to see the Mona Lisa up close, instead of through a sea of people hoisting cell phones.

Holiday markets are too many to count in Paris, but the Tuileries Gardens’ Magic of Christmas might be the most popular. If that market is mobbed, head to Montmartre or the one near Notre-Dame, which are a bit more relaxed.

The Eiffel Tower is on every Paris itinerary, but the winter brings an extra bucket-list opportunity: ice skating on the rink next door through early February.

Magical gardens packed with spring flowers, flashes of fashion week, and a little bit of jazz bring fresh energy to Paris. Rain is a reality, though, so you’ll need some wet-weather gear to freely explore. But the smaller crowds and cheaper nightly rates compared to summer more than make up for it.

Versailles is a stunner any time of year, but spring may show the palace at its best, when its perfectly manicured gardens explode into a riot of spring blooms. If it’s rainy, the gilded halls of Louis XIV’s former home bring their own golden sunshine.

The world’s fashion icons hit town during Paris Spring Fashion Week. You’ll need an insider connection to access most shows, but restaurants, bars, and clubs around town are perfect spots to do a little people-watching of haute couture royalty (and celebrities).

Grab your tickets for the Saint-Germain-des-Pres Jazz Festival, a global celebration of jazz that has called this historic Paris neighborhood home for over 20 years.

Hot days. Warm nights. And a kir at a sidewalk cafe. This is the season of the flaneur in Paris, whether you want to pass long lazy days watching the streetlife, or join the countless activities in town. Prepare yourself, though: Crowds this time of year can be intense, especially at top attractions.

Dry, clear skies and long days make summer the time to soak up Paris’ unmatched scenery. Walk the Seine, stroll the St. Martin Canal, or pack a baguette-and-cheese-filled picnic basket and head to one of the city’s gorgeous parks (Trocadéro Gardens, next to the Eiffel Tower, is an obvious choice).

The Tour de France storms through the country in July and reaches its Champs-Élysées finish line to the tune of thousands of screaming fans. Line up with them for the thrill of cyclists whooshing past.

Summer means festival season is here. From the massive Rock en Seine music fest to the Paris l’Éte Festival—where music, art, and theater performances (usually free!) take over squares and parks—the city is buzzing all summer long.

Despite a chill in the air and steel-gray skies, the City of Lights hardly dims in the fall. In fact, the city’s cultural calendar heats up as locals return from their summer vacations. Another good reason to consider booking now? Hotel rates start to drop a bit this time of year.

Nuit Blanche is one of the most popular art events in the city. Exhibitions and performances take place from dusk until dawn in venues and public spaces all around Paris. Even better, they’re all free.

Warm up the Parisian way, with a rich chocolate chaud. Countless quaint cafes sling this sweet treat, but iconic Angelina Paris, historic Café de Flore, and more experimental Jean-Paul Hévin top the must-drink list.

The Paris Catacombs draw curious visitors year-round, but the run-up to Halloween is the perfect time of year to tour one of Paris’ spookiest corners, bones and all.

Where to stay

  • Le Marais
    Central, LGBTQ-friendly, and packed with character—the Marais is one of Paris’ most popular neighbourhoods and a lively place to stay. Indie shops, lovely cafes, and charming boutique hotels rub elbows with major cultural sights like the Picasso Museum and Centre Pompidou. Other major destinations like Notre Dame are about 10 to 15 minutes away on foot.

  • Saint-Germain-des-Prés
    Looking for that only-in-Paris vibe of quaint alleys, iron street lamps, and ringing church bells? You’re picturing Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It’s a shopper’s paradise, and home to excellent brasseries and cafes. (Chocolate chaud at Café de Flor, anyone?) The 6th Arrondissement setting also puts the Musee d’Orsay, Jardins du Luxembourg, and the Seine Riverfront in easy reach.
    Read more
  • Montparnasse
    Is Montparnasse the most atmospheric neighbourhood in Paris? No. But somewhat lower hotel rates and a central, well-connected location make this a solid bet for a Parisian stay. The cafes that once hosted Hemingway, Sartre, and others are still here, as is the Cartier Foundation contemporary gallery and the Paris Catacombs.
    Read more
  • Montmartre
    When travellers dream of Paris they are dreaming of Montmartre: cobblestone streets, tiny cafes, cute shops, and the stunning Sacré-Coeur Basilica. Just don’t expect the glossy or grand lodging you’d find in the 1st Arrondissement. Hotels here are simple affairs, though they’re  often cheaper than the more central districts. Keep in mind that this area is close to the rowdy nightlife of Pigalle, just down the hill.
    Read more
  • Pigalle
    Pigalle has many personalities. It’s still a bit raucous—the Moulin Rouge is here and the district still has its red-light spots. But hipsters have arrived too, adding trendy coffee shops, restaurants, and bars that fill the lanes south of Boulevard de Clichy. Hotels range from budget-friendly to high-end, but do your research as quality can vary widely.
    Read more
  • Bastille / Oberkampf
    Party people may like camping out in the Bastille, one of Paris’ nightlife hubs, with the rowdy bars and up-all-hours nightclubs to match. But this area has its practical perks, too. It’s convenient for getting around the city—three train lines converge at Bastille—making trips to other parts of Paris easy. You’ll find countless hotel options, including many chain properties, often priced less than properties in more central districts. 
    Read more
  • 10th Arr. - Entrepôt
    Wedged up against Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est, the 10th is a bustling district that gathers together so much of what makes Paris great. Hipster haunts, trendy cafes, global cuisine, and the St. Martin Canal are all found here, as are hotels of all stripes: budget commuter properties, indie boutique options, and simple chain hotels.

Hotels near the sights

  • Eiffel Tower
    If you have visions of bunking under the Eiffel Tower, we have some bad news. Almost no hotels sit directly next to this iconic monument. You’ll have to head to neighbourhoods north or south of the Trocadéro Gardens, which have historic inns and chain hotels in spades. Rates are a bit pricier around here, though hotels just north of the tower put you close to Invalides and Seine River crossings into the 1st.
    Read more
  • Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris
    Smack in the middle of the Seine, Notre Dame is really split between two distinct parts of town, each with its own lodging options. To the north, bustling boulevards give way to the trendy Marais and its boutique hotels. To the south, things are more touristy, with souvenir stalls and classic book stores competing for attention in the Latin Quarter. 
    Read more
  • Luxembourg Gardens
    The Jardin du Luxembourg is one of Paris’ most beautiful parks, and it just happens to be surrounded by some of the most popular neighbourhoods in town. To the north are the upmarket boutique hotels and shops of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. To the southwest, you’ll find slightly cheaper hotels that put you within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower. 
    Read more
  • Louvre Museum
    Europe’s most famous museum is plunked smack in the centre of Paris. A stay near this landmark is incredibly convenient, offering nearby metro access as well as easy walks to major sights like the Palais-Royal, Notre Dame, and Jardins des Tuileries. Prices for hotels nearby are high, though they are some of the most posh in town. 
    Read more
  • Champs-Elysees
    Stretching west from the 1st Arrondissement, this is Paris’ most famous street—and its grandest. Everything from luxe hotels to boutique properties, inns, and budget hotels call the area home, and surprisingly nightly rates are generally lower than hotels in the nearby 1st. This district is also a shopper’s heaven, with major retailers in every direction.
    Read more
  • Moulin Rouge
    The world’s most famous cabaret, the pinwheeling Moulin Rouge anchors the Pigalle neighbourhood. While its red-light reputation has faded just a bit, it’s still present, though hipsters have added brasseries, trendy restaurants, and cafes all around it. Plenty of budget hotels call this area home, but do your research before you book as there’s a big range in quality.
    Read more
  • Centre Pompidou
    Paris’ premiere contemporary art museum has one of the best locations in town. Major sites, like Notre Dame, are close at hand, as are various metro stations. And to the east is the Marais, an LGBTQ-friendly neighbourhood of indie shops, boutique hotels, and local bars. Hotels range from budget options to ritzy properties and everything in between, generally with slightly cheaper rates than the 1st. 
    Read more
  • Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre
    Soaring on a hill above Pigalle, the Sacré-Coeur Basilica is one of Paris’ most recognisable landmarks. It marks the entry to the charming lanes of Montmartre, where small boutique hotels are the norm. Staying below the church in Pigalle means you’re in the thick of Parisian nightlife, and you’ll find budget-friendly hotels and metro stops nearby.
    Read more
  • Musée d'Orsay
    Home to some of the most recognisable works of art, the Musee d’Orsay sits on the Seine’s Left Bank, just across from the Jardins des Tuileries. You’ll mostly find more small-scale, intimate hotels nearby, some with plenty of historic character, though rates tend to be a bit pricier than options just west of Invalides (essentially next door).
