10 Boulevard Montmartre, Passage Jouffroy, 9th Arrondissement
Located inside a historic glass-roofed arcade, the charming 36-guestroom Hôtel Chopin represents a quickly shrinking category in the Paris hotel scene by sporting only two stars. All guestrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, safes, charming Toile Jouy decor, and simple furnishings, and the hotel even has a tiny elevator - not a "given" in 2-star properties.
What sets Hotel Jouffroy apart aside from the budget-friendly rates is its location in Passage Jouffroy, one of the city's wonderful historic glass-roofed arcades. In addition to bookstores, toy shops, boutiques, and cute cafes, Passage Jouffroy is also home to the very fun Grevin Wax Museum. Both the hotel and the passage opened in 1946, and both are now classified as historical monuments.
How did Hotel Chopin get its name? It's a tribute to the composer who regularly used the passage as a short cut between his home and Playel, his favorite piano maker. Supposedly he also met his lover, novelist George Sand, in the hotel for rendevous... but that's just a rumor.
Light-filled airy spaces with splashes of bright colors and a garden motif welcome you as soon as you walk through Hôtel Bienvenue's Art Deco entrance. The hotel's 37 rooms feature sleekly contemporary modern furnishings, and are divided between two adjoining buildings - reserve a room in "Town" for serene pastel decor, or "Countryside" for more florals. Spring for one of the larger rooms if you'd like a steam shower in your bathroom.
Although the hotel has a nice restaurant and even a pastry chef who offers onsite classes for adults and children each week. part of the hotel's appeal is its location in ultra-trendy SoPi (South Pigalle) - so leave plenty of time to explore the cafes, bars, and boutiques along nearby Rue des Martyrs as well as the 19th century covered passages throughout the 9th and nearby 2nd arrondissements.
Located conveniently close to the Gare Saint-Lazare (or Laz', as Parisians call it) rail/metro station close to the ritzy Galeries Lafayette and Au Printemps department stores, the Olympia concert hall, and the Paris Opera House, 4-star Laz' Hôtel Spa Urbain offers 56 comfortable guest rooms and suites, an indoor pool, fitness room, spa, and hammam.

You'll love the quiet side street location and numerous nearby bistros in the otherwise bustling Opéra/Grands Magasins neighborhood. And the value is hard to beat.
