eiffel-paris-hotelAs one of top tourist destinations, Paris has a wide selection of hotels to cater tourist accommodation needs.  There are over 2,000 hotels you can choose, from non-star hotels to luxury hotels.  In Paris, stars rate the hotel, the more stars the better hotel it is, in term of room, amenities, hotel facilities, services, etc. Of course, it reflects on the hotel prices as well.


Finding Information

The first thing to do is finding the information on Paris Hotels in the Internet by using available hotel search engines. This way, you can view images of various hotels in Paris instantly. You can also go to your local travel agencies to pick up some brochures which needs a little effort to do..

The best way to choose the right hotel you want is to decide first what you want.  This includes your budget, star rating, location (in city center, near historical site i.e. Champs Elysees, Louvre, or Eiffel Tower, near shopping centre i.e. La Fayette or near train station), and must-have hotel features (Internet connection, restaurant, swimming pool, pets allowed, airport shuttle, parking, fitness room, etc.). With all your hotel preferences in mind, you can now go online and search by filling your preferences in the hotel search engines. It is better if you have already known your travel date; you will only select available hotels on your desired dates.


Which hotel do I choose?

Your search may lead to a few hotel options to choose. It is time to make comparison on prices to get the best hotels for less. You can view images of the hotel to give you an idea how the room will look like, even though the image is not always as it is in reality. If You may consider the chain hotels for narrowing the options. It is safer to choose hotel with well-known management such as Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, Holiday Inn, Le Meridien, Mercure, Best Western, etc. for standard quality assurance in its star rating.
