Le Prince Regent Residence & Spa - APART HOTEL ★★★★
16 Rue d'Antin, 2nd Arrondissement

Hotel d'Aubusson ★★★★
7 Rue Thenard
For a quintessential Parisian experience, book a guestroom with a balcony at the highly-rated 29-room, 3-star Hôtel du College de France, located on a quiet side street close to the Cluny Museum and the Seine River, and sip a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing. The hotel's location in the heart of the Latin quarter gives you an excellent base for exploring all of Paris.
Ceiling fans keep the guestrooms cool during summer months, and you'll love the hotel's affordable rates - a real bargain for this sought-after area in the Left Bank. The catch? Hotel du College de France is well-known for the value it delivers - so you'll need to book as early as possible if you want to get a room.
Hôtel Christine ★★★★
The charming 4-star Hôtel Parc Saint-Séverin overlooks a quiet pedestrian-only street behind Église Saint-Séverin in Paris's Latin Quarter.
The hotel's 27 rooms are decorated in calm neutral shades with pops of jewel-like colors and many luxury touches. You'll find that the hotel's smaller rooms are a bargain for this location, while larger ones offer balconies with wonderful Paris rooftop and skyline views.
You can easily reach both Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle in about 5 minutes on foot, but be sure to also take time to explore this neighborhood's gems - the medieval tapestries and Roman baths at Cluny Museum, the English-language bookstore and café at Shakespeare & Company, and if you're here in December, the wonderful Christmas market held each year at Square René Viviani, directly across the Seine from Notre Dame.
Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme ★★★★★
5 Rue de la Paix, 2nd Arrondissement
Whether you choose a spacious guest room or a palatial suite with terrace views of nearby Place Vendôme at the luxurious 5-star Park Hyatt Place Vendôme, you'll love the posh contemporary furnishings, deep soaking tubs in the bathrooms, heated floors, onsite spa, well-equipped fitness room, and Michelin-starred cuisine at this wonderful oasis with 156 rooms and suites located in a historic Parisian palace.

The hotel is also surrounded by the world's best jewelers in Place Vendôme, and is steps away from the designer showrooms along Rue Saint-Honoré. And during the Christmas holiday season, sparkling lights covering dozens of majestic conical trees make Place Vendôme the most magical spot in Paris.Book Now
Hotel Jardin de Cluny ★★★★
9 Rue du Sommerard, 5th arrondissement
Thanks to a transformative top-to-bottom makover, Hotel Jardin de Cluny is now a gorgeous 4-star oasis with lush floral touches and Art Deco-inspired furnishings. Super-comfortable beds, sleekly modern bathrooms, and excellent lighting add to your comfort.
You'll also love the hotel's superb Latin Quarter location near Cluny Museum and just a short 5-minute walk to the Seine River and Notre Dame Cathedral. Stroll through the nearby Maubert open-air food market, pay your respects to French heroes (including American-born singer Josephine Baker, honored for her work with the French Resistence) at the Pantheon, and of course see the famous "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries, other medieval treasures, and Roman baths at the recently reopened Musée de Cluny.
Bonus for families: Book the spacious Junior Suite, which sleeps four.

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.
But here's the catch: Le Basile fills up quickly because it offers cheap rates in this expensive neighborhood - so don't wait to book.Book Now

Each of the Albe Hotel's 43 guestrooms and suites is decorated with a unique theme, with a Scandinavian influence in the clean design and splashes of color against monochromes. Plenty of triples make this hotel a great choice for small families or a group of friends.
You'll have easy access to Notre Dame and other Île de la Cité attractions, as well as to all the wonderful Latin Quarter bistros, galleries, and boutiques.
