Many travelers are interested in hotels that are inexpensive, but that are not classified as hostels or budget motels. In a city like Paris, it can be difficult to know your options because there are so many neighborhoods, attractions, and price ranges that it's easy to get lost in the flood of information. These five affordable hotels in Paris are certain to offer you a combination of comfort, affordability, and proximity to all of the main tourist attractions of Paris.

Lined with blooming flower boxes in each window sill, this charming hotel is an affordable way to enjoy Paris, with rooms starting at only $175 per night.

  2. Hotel des Saints-Pères

    Have some breakfast, or le petit-dèjeuner, in the cafe of the boutique Hotel des Saints-Pères located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, or La Rive Gauche.

Starting at $118 per night, you can stay at the Hotel Verneuil, located in close proximity to this famed cafe.
