Best place to stay while on honeymoon

Hello everyone,

I am in the midst of planning my honeymoon in Paris sometime in early August. I would love to get some recommendations of areas/neighborhoods in Paris. Ideally, I would prefer somewhere close to the sights but not too far from shopping, restaurants and all that other cultural stuff. Oh and since I am at it, does anyone have anything bad to say about those Airbnb sites that offer places to stay? ThankS!

Hello, and welcome to the forum.

I can't answer all of your questions, but in general I'd recommend anywhere in arrondissements 1-6. Mind you, in other central neighborhoods, you'll be near restaurants and cultural attractions, too, and those areas would have their benefits, too. But in the very core of the city, you can easily walk along the river and see some of the more famous sights of the city.

When I think honeymoon, I think young. Which, today, is no longer the case.

If, however you are young, there are several options (several for us seniors, too, but different).

The 10th and 11th near the Canal St Martin is romantic... walking in late along the water. Yummy. It is also younger and more dynamic and more affordable than places in, say, the 6th.

The 3rd, upper 4th is über hip and trendy with lots of sexy, stylish people out and about.

Finally, the 5th has a serious student edge. Totally central with lots of other visitors and plenty of affordable eats, or fancy restaurants.

I'd recommend Hotel Ares Eiffel or La Villa D'estrées, both are on the left bank, beautiful locations and wonderful hotels. However if you only need the location I'd say Paris 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, so basically the heart of the city around Ile de la Cite. Have a great time!

Just in case:

vrbo.com has apartments everywhere in Paris.

historicrentals.com has two one bedroom apartments, with king beds, in the Latin Quarter.

Also try rothray.com.
