New Paris Hotels
La Fantaisie ★★★★★
24 Rue Cadet, 9th arrondissement; nearest metro: Cadet
The 9th arrondissement's newest 5-star hotel, La Fantaisie, offers lots to love: 63 spacious guestrooms and 10 suites (including an option for up to 6 guests) with chic decor in garden-fresh shades of peach and green, marigold and blue, plenty of luxury touches, and a fun location on one of Paris's charming pedestrian-only market streets, Rue Cadet.
You're also in a fascinating part of the city near the foot of Montmartre, the Rue des Martyrs food street, and the fun Grevin Wax Museum. Palais Garnier is about 10 minutes away by foot if you want to see an opera or ballet.
But the three best bonuses when you stay here are the hotel's lush interior garden, enchanting rooftop bar with views of the Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coeur, and best of all, the gastronomic culinary experience overseen by Michelin-starred Chef Dominique Crenn (the only female chef in the US to attain the lofty 3-star level) in the onsite restaurant, Golden Poppy featuring creative vegetable and seafood-focused dishes made from local French products.
The Walled Off Hotel Paris ★★
44 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 9th arrondissement; nearest metro: Le Peletier
For an immersive dive into Paris street art, especially if you are a Banksy fan, consider staying in the new 2-star The Walled Off Hotel Paris, a reproduction of its Bethlehem counterpart. In fact, the hotel's public spaces such as the lobby are a part of the permanent Banksy exhibition, available for ticketed visitors to explore.
In addition to the experience of staying in a Banksy-themed guestroom, you'll also enjoy low rates in this buzzy part of the 9th arrondissement. Small 1-person singles (which do not have in-room toilets or showers) usually offer cheap rates well under 100€, and even the larger rooms with en-suite facilities fall into the very affordable price range.
Hotel Dame des Arts ★★★★
4 Rue Danton, 6th arrondissement
With an onsite restaurant, courtyard garden, and, best of all, a rooftop bar with spectacular 360 views of Paris including iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the 4-star Hotel Dame des Arts also offers a fantastic Latin Quarter location about a 2-minute walk from the Seine River.
Cross the Seine, and you're on Ile de la Cité, where you can experience the magnificent stained glass and candlelight concerts at Sainte-Chapelle, the gothic splendor of Notre Dame, and the fascinating Sunday morning bird market.
Guestrooms come in all sizes, ranging from affordable small rooms to quite spacious suites, as well as adjoining rooms. The hotel also includes a fitness room and electric bike rentals.

Maison Proust ★★★★★
26 Rue de Picardie, 3rd arrondissement; nearest metro: Temple
Belle Epoque-themed decor, personalized service, and a wonderful onsite spa make the 5-star Maison Proust a fantastic addition to Paris's Upper Marais neighborhood.
The hotel's gem-like public spaces include a romantic bar/lounge, a tranquil Winter Garden, and round library topped with a domed ceiling featuring shimmering stars and stocked with leather-bound books which Proust himself might have read.
The hotel's 23 guestrooms and suites pay homage to Proust and his close friends such as Claude Monet by featuring colors, art, and other details selected to match their personalities. Even the hand-painted tiles in the spa reflect Proust's trips with his aunt to Morocco during his youth.
The hotel's location just over a block from the historical Enfants Rouge Covered Market puts you close to lots of wonderful small bistros and boutiques, as well as a small botanical garden/park at Square du Temple Elie Wiesel, also a block and a half away. You're also close to two excellent smaller museums, the Musée National Picasso-Paris and the lesser-known (but very visit-worthy) Museum of Hunting and Nature.
Padam Hotel ★★★★
9 Rue Jean Giraudoux, 16th arrondissement
Located in Paris's "Golden Triangle," the area between Avenue des Champs Elysees and the Seine River where practically every top fashion designer displays their latest collection in a boutique or showroom, the new 4-star Padam Hotel gives you the perfect home base for shopping and visiting all the nearby fashion museums: Palais Galliera, La Galerie Dior, and Musée Yves Saint Laurent.

Edgar Suites Montmartre-Paul Albert Apartments
7 Rue Paul Albert, 18th arrondissement; nearest metro: Abbesses or Anvers
Located only one block away from one of Paris's most famous attraction, Sacre Coeur Basilica, staying in one of the Edgar Suites Residence Montmartre-Paul Albert 11 chic apartments puts you the ideal location for enjoying Montmartre's famous panoramic city skyline views, neighborhood cafes, cute boutiques, and the Rue des Abbesses food street. And definitely go inside the basilica to admire gorgeous mosaic ceiling (one of the largest in the world) over the altar.
Attend a caberet show at nearby Moulin Rouge or a concert at the La Cigale Music Hall. If you're visiting with children, they'll love the carousel and small playground in Square Louis Michel where you'll find an entrance only about 30 feet from your apartment.
All of the 11 family-friendly apartments come with fully equipped kitchens, air conditioning, and accommodate from 2 to 6 guests. Athough the building has an elevator, a small flight of front steps means it is not accessable to anyone with reduced mobility.
From the metro station on Rue des Abbesses, you can reach the top of the butte (hill) where Sacre Coeur and the apartment are located by taking the funicular (an electric rail car) or a long flight of stairs.
Reserve an Edgar Suites apartment in other top Paris locations:

64 Boulevard de Belleville, 20th arrondissement
With a cool industrial-chic vibe in the lobby and guest rooms, the onsite bistronomic restaurant, and many other appealing restaurant options nearby, the 4-star Novotel Paris 20 Belleville has quickly become popular with both with business and leisure visitors who appreciate the laid-back but trendy multicultural Belleville neighborhood and the fast access to central Paris, thanks to the Couronnes metro station across the street.
The hotel's bargain rates (for a 4-star Paris property) are well-known to savvy travelers - so book well in advance of your dates, especially if you want one of the rooms with a balcony.
Pro Tip: Take time to explore all of the nearby attractions: Pere Lachaise Cemetery, Canal Saint-Martin, the immersive art shows at Atelier des Lumieres, street art, the large and vibrant Marché de Belleville open air market along Boulevard de Belleville (Tuesdays and Fridays, about 8am-2:30pm), and the neighborhood's two great parks, Parc des Buttes Chamont, and Parc de Belleville.
Chateau Voltaire ★★★★★
55 Rue Saint-Roch, 1st arrondissement
Understated luxury, 32 spacious-to-huge guestrooms large enough to contain a sofa along with the bed, superb service, and an excellent location between the Louvre Museum and Palais Garnier Opera House make Chateau Voltaire stand out among the recent bevvy of new 5-star Paris hotels.
The hotel also offers wonderful amenities: an indoor pool, a spa, and an excellent restaurant and bar popular where you're just likely to see Parisians along with hotel guests. In your guestroom, you'll have a real espresso (not Nespresso) machine.
The hotel is owned by Thierry Gillier, founder of the French fashion house Zadig & Voltaire, known for its chic but timeless designs, luxurious high-quality fabrics, and comfort. You'll see that same aesthetic reflected in his hotel.
Hotel La Canopée ★★★
15 Rue de Penthièvre, 8th arrondissement
Chic and modern with 25 well-appointed guest rooms, 3-star Hotel La Canopée offers lovely parquet floors, air conditioning, in-room safes, and super-comfy beds. As a bonus, there's a small fitness room on the lower level - rare in a 3-star hotel, and not common even in 4-stars. You can enjoy breakfast and your morning coffee on a terrace offering tranquil garden views.
Another plus: affordable rates, especially considering the hotel's excellent 8th arrondissement location close to Champs-Élysées, Jacquemart-André Museum, Madeleine Church, and all of the wonderful designer boutiques along Rue du Faubourt Saint-Honoré. You'll also find lots of excellent restaurants and bars nearby.
Hotel Madame Rêve ★★★★★
48 Rue du Louvre, 1st arrondissement
Even if 5-star Hotel Madame Rêve weren't in an ideal location - which it is - you'd still want it on your "best place to stay in Paris" bucket list because of its exceptional views, breath-taking public spaces, 82 luxurious guestrooms and suites, excellent service, and rooftop garden terrace.
Whether you're visiting Paris for a romantic weekend, treating yourself to a solo get-away with lots of quality time in the onsite spa, or staying with your family in one of the suites that sleep four, you'll find so much to love here.
Once you step outside the hotel, you'll quickly appreciate Madame Rêve's superb location in the 1st arrondissement.
The Louvre Museum, Tuileries Garden, Saint-Eustache Church, and the Pinault Collection featuring contemporary art are just steps away, and the dazzling newly-opened La Samaritaine department store is just around the corner.
Île de la Cité, with Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle, is a 2-minute walk across the Pont Neuf bridge. And on the other side is the arty part of the Saint-Germain neighborhood where you can spend hours exploring the art galleries and design studios.
Pro tip #1: Almost all guestrooms and suites feature wonderful balconies and terraces - be sure to request one!
Pro tip #2: Carve out time to relax with a drink on the hotel's rooftop terrace and enjoy the views.
Hotel La Belle Ville ★★★★
349 Rue de Belleville, 19th arrondissement
La Belle Ville's 59 eco-friendly guest rooms and public spaces offer a light, bright, and airy haven in a tranquil mostly-residential part of Paris's hip 19th arrondissement - a perfect spot if you want to experience an authentic, non-touristy part of the city.
The hotel's attractive exterior has been transformed into a vertical garden covered with green plants, and guestrooms have been designed to provide an allergy-free environment. With attractively low rates, 4-star La Belle Ville offers fantastic value in a little-known corner of the city.
In case you're wondering if La Belle Ville's location in the 19th might be far from top attractions, rest assured that a metro station about a 1-minute walk away makes reaching other areas such as the Marais fast and easy.
There's also a lot to explore nearby, including the Buttes-Chaumont and Belleville Parks and Pere Lachaise Cemetery.
You'll also enjoy the hotel's onsite pizzeria (as well as other neighborhood bistros, cafes, and bars).
Hotel Moderniste ★★★★
5 Rue de Langeac, 15th arrondissement
Hotel Moderniste, located in Paris's village-like Convention neighborhood about halfway between the Porte de Versailles exhibition center and the Convention Metro station where Line 12 whisks to you central Paris and Montmartre, offers 40 guestrooms (including family rooms that can sleep up to 5) and a clean, modern vibe enhanced by Art Deco/Moderne decor.
A spacious breakfast room doubles as a lounge area where you can enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, and madeleines during the afternoon and evening, and also offers an honesty bar.
Like its sister hotel, Hotel Fabric in Oberkampf, the 4-star Hotel Moderniste provides excellent soundproofing and super-comfy bedding - the two most important things for a good night's sleep.
Although room sizes are a bit small, like most Paris hotels, the very affordable rates mean you get great value for your money.
You'll find plenty of small but good places to eat and shop in the Convention neighborhood.
An open-air market along Rue de la Convention on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays offers produce, prepared food, clothing (including a vendor selling lovely leather bags and linen clothing made in Italy), and other articles.
Also, don't miss the weekend used and antique book market at nearby Parc George Brassens, which also offers seasonal pony rides and a puppet theater for kids, and even has its own small vineyard.

1 Rue Lepic, 18th arrondissement
Located almost next to the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret and close to La Cigale music hall and Sacre Coeur Basilica, 5-star Manolita Paris gives you the perfect spot for exploring all of Montmartre's charming nooks and crannies. It's also just steps away from the Blanche metro station, which gives you easy access to the rest of the city.
With only 10 guestrooms and suites, the hotel offers personalized service and a glamorous ambiance with a Belle Epoque/Art Deco vibe.
Even the smallest guestrooms are large by Paris standards, and the hotel's gorgeous gold and black bar gives you a comfortable spot to savor a drink (or two) after a day of sightseeing or an evening enjoying the neighborhood's many entertainment venues.
Pro tip: Book a suite with a balcony.
Babel Belleville Hotel ★★★
3 Rue Lemon, 20th arrondissement
If you're looking for an affordable but chic hotel in a non-touristy but cool part of Paris, 3-star Babel Belleville Hotel may be the perfect fit.
Located on a quiet lane in the heart of the arty Belleville neighborhood almost at the point where the 10th, 11th, 19th, and 20th arrondissements intersect, the hotel is just a few steps away from Rue Denoyez, known for its street art. Surrounding streets are home to numerous artists studios (if you're visiting in June, be sure to check out Belleville and Pere Lachaise Artists' Open Studios).

Although the 35 guestrooms are on the smaller size, furnishings and bedding are high quality, and again, you'll enjoy the low rates and great location! An onsite restaurant offers delicious Lebanese food and terrace seating (you should make reservations, as it's a popular neighborhood spot). The Belleville Metro is around the corner; take Line 2 to reach Montmartre and the Arc de Triomphe, or Line 11 to get to the Marais and Hotel de Ville on the edge of the Seine River.
Pro tip: Book a Superior room for more space, or the Family room if you need accommodations for up to four.
Hotel Le Milie Rose ★★★★
22 Rue des Petits Écuries, Paris 10
The highly-rated Hotel Le Milie Rose is the perfect choice when you want a luxurious cocoon in the heart of Paris's Right Bank.
With a location in a lively part of the city close to Paris's two big rail stations, Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est, as well as the Musée Grevin Wax Museum, several of the city's historic covered passages, and the trendy restaurants in the Canal Saint-Martin area, the hotel also puts you within an easy 20-minute (or less walk) to the Louvre, Centre Pompidou, the Marais, and other top attractions.

Hotel Jardin de Cluny ★★★★
9 Rue du Sommerard, 5th arrondissement
Although technically not a new hotel, a total top-to-bottom, down-to-the-studs makover has transformed the recently-reopened, like-new Hotel Jardin de Cluny into 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.

Bvlgari Hôtel ★★★★★
30 Avenue George V in the Golden Triangle, 8th arrondissement

Kimpton - Saint Honoré Paris ★★★★★
27 Boulevard des Capucines, 2nd Arrondissement
Behind the Art Nouveau façade of its 1917 building, the new and luxurious 5-star Kimpton St Honoré Paris offers everything you could want for your stay in Paris: a superb location about a 2-minute walk from the Palais Garnier Opera House and famous fashion designer showrooms, chic Art Deco-inspired decor by acclaimed Paris-based designer Charles Zana in its 123 guest rooms and 26 suites, a gorgeous sun-lit patio outside its onsite restaurant, and a full-service spa with a heated indoor swimming pool and gym.
But perhaps best of all, the hotel's rooftop garden and bar offer spectacular 360-degree views of the city's most famous monuments and attractions. There's nothing else like it in Paris.
Canopy Paris Trocadero ★★★★
16 Avenue d'Eylau, 16th arrondissement
Thanks to its wonderful location close to Trocadero and its viewing platform offering superb views of the Eiffel Tower, the 4-star Canopy Paris Trocadero Hotel by Hilton offers a similar vista from many of its 123 elegant and spacious guest rooms and suites.
However, for the best views of the iconic landmark, head up to the hotel's large rooftop terrace bar in the evening, where you can sip a glass of champagne or Parisian craft beer as a DJ plays music while city lights sparkle all around you.
You'll find a lot more to love at the Canopy Paris Trocadero - the fun Art Deco vibe, expansive public spaces for dining, relaxing, and even working on your laptop, a well-equipped fitness room, and easy access to all of the city's other iconic attractions. Plus, you can use your Hilton points to book.
Hotel Rochechouart ★★★★
55 Boulevard de Rochechouart, 9th arrondissement
After closing down for a complete top-to-bottom renovation, the 4-star Hotel Rochechouart has emerged with a poshly elegant Art Deco vibe in its public spaces and 106 guestrooms and suites. The real show-stopper, though, is the fabulous rooftop terrace/bar offering sweeping views of Paris. Pro tip: Book a room on an upper floor with an Eiffel Tower view.
The hotel's location puts it at the edge of the Pigalle neighborhood, once known for its sex shows (only a few remain) and now home to an increasing number of trendy bars and bistros. Famed Montmartre music halls La Cigale and La Trianon are almost directly across the street, and a leisurely 5-minute walk will bring you to the Moulin Rouge caberet, while you can reach Sacre Coeur in less than 10 minutes - if you take the funicular up the hill!
11 Rue du Helder, 9th arrondissement
Similar to a "concept store" that combines retail with culture, the 4-star Chouchou might be considered a "concept hotel" due to the way it combines accommodations in its 63 sleekly sophisticated guestrooms and suites with entertainment and (potentially) romance.
In case you're wondering, chouchou is a slightly old-fashioned French term of endearment based on the word for, of all things, a cabbage.
A stay at Chouchou lets you enjoy the guinguette-style bar complete with dance floor, a concert and live performance space called La Scène, a mini-food hall occupied by multiple vendors, and even a bath house of sorts with spa-like private tubs large enough for two available for rent by the hour, complete with champagne, a tasting menu, and music.
Book a night or longer at Chouchou , and you may have so much fun that you won't want to venture from the hotel - but if you do, you can walk to Palais Garnier - aka the Paris Opera House - and Galeries Lafayette in less than 5 minutes, and easily explore the rest of Paris and its top attractions from the hotel's location on a quiet side street in the lively 9th arrondissement.
Le Cheval Blanc ★★★★★
8 Quai du Louvre, 1st arrondissement
The newly opened 5-star Cheval Blanc Paris, an ultra-luxury hotel featuring the work of 600+ painters, furniture makers, textile designers, and other artisans in the Art Deco building formerly home to the storied La Samaritaine department store, is rumored to be a top candidate for a future coveted "Palace" hotel designation, and for good reason.
Owned by luxury brand LVMH headed by contemporary art patron Bernard Arnault, the hotel's 72 guest rooms and suites showcase the work of French designers and craftsmen who have combined luxurious materials with beautiful design and comfort. Located in the historic heart of Paris almost adjacent to the Louvre Museum, the hotel's private balconies give you sweeping views of the Seine River, the Ile de la Cité, and even the Eiffel Tower. You can relax in the hotel's Dior Spa, and dine on exquisite cuisine in the onsite restaurants.
If you're considering hotels where the cheapest rates start well above $1,000/night, you'll want Chevel Blanc on your short list.
Hotel Ami ★★★
7 Rue du General Beuret, 15th arrondissement; nearest metro: Vaugiraud
If you're looking for an affordable Paris hotel in an appealing neighborhood close to the Eiffel Tower, take a close look at the 3-star Hotel Ami featuring glimpses of the famous attraction from a few upper-floor rooms (like #67) and just a 10-minute walk to Champ de Mars.
Although the boutique property located in a former post office has been operating here since 1925, a complete top-to-bottom renovation makes it feel like new with a dazzling Nordic-minimalist design that makes the most of the compact 41 guest room spaces, including a family room.
Need more space? Head down to the appealing bar/lounge or charming walled terrace where you can sip a glass of wine or a cup of coffee made from freshly roasted organic beans sourced from local Paris roaster, Lomi.
The surrounding Saint-Lambert neighborhood, a popular residential area, is also home to artisan workshops as well as numerous small restaurants, brasseries, and shops. Hop on the Metro at the Vaugirard station (Line 12) around the corner, and you'll be at the Orsay Museum in less than 10 minutes, and in Montmartre in another 7-8 minutes.
Hotel du Sentier ★★★★
2 Place du Caire, 2nd arrondissement
Located at the Place du Caire entrance to Paris's oldest covered arcade, Passage du Caire, the new 4-star Hotel du Sentier features 30 beautifully designed guest rooms including some on upper floors overlooking the glass-roofed passage.
For a special treat, book one of the spacious top-floor rooms with rooftop terraces overlooking Paris rooftops. All guest rooms feature beautiful wooden floors, marble bath rooms, fast wifi, air conditioning, and plush beds.
A small onsite brasserie serves bistro-type fare throughout the day, plus the surrounding neighborhood is considered a foodie paradise, with the famous food streets Rue de Nil and Rue Montorgueil about a 1-minute walk away.
A 5-10 minute walk will get you to the Grand Rex movie theater (the largest in Europe!), Les Halles, the Musée des Arts et Métiers, and the Grevin Wax Museum, and a 15-minute walk will get you to the Louvre Museum, Centre Pompidou, and Palais Garnier (Paris Opera House).
Hotel Sookie ★★★★
2 bis Rue Commines, 3rd arrondissement
Stone walls, wooden beams, interesting eco-friendly fabrics, and vintage finds give the 4-star Hotel Sookie's 31 rooms and suites a "home away from home" vibe while still feeling chic and fresh. The hotel's all-day coffee shop, also open to the public, extends the warm feeling and gives you a perfect people-watching spot. Come in for a croissant and café crème, and relax to jazz, funk, and soul tunes from the cafe's vintage vinyl collection and turntable including American jazz guitarist Grant Green's 1970 hit, "Sookie, Sookie," inspiration for the hotel's name.
The hotel's location on a quiet street in the Upper Marais puts you within easy reach of some of the neighborhoods best galleries and acclaimed bistros, plus you're just a short walk from the city's oldest covered market, Marché des Enfants Rouge, the Picasso Museum, other buzzy Marais destinations, and the nightlife in the trendy Oberkampf district.
Hotel les Deux Gares ★★★★
2 Rue de Deux Gares, 10th arrondissement
Located in a lovely Haussmannian building in a lively neighborhood filled with Indian restaurants and small shops roughly between Paris's Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est train stations, the new 4-star Hotel les Deux Gares offers 40 air conditioned guest rooms decorated in fun vibrant colors by British designer Luke Edward Hall. Some rooms interconnect, if you need a family room.
Even the decor in the onsite Café les Deux Gares French bistro (which you should check out for its excellent yet affordable 3-course prix-fixe lunch menu, even if you don't stay in the hotel), comfortable front lobby, and fitness room mirrors the hotel's high-energy theme.
Rates at the hotel are also usually very affordable, as it is location a bit outside of the usual tourist districts.
The hotel's location is convenient, of course, if you're arriving or departing from one of the nearby train stations, but it also puts you close to all the foodie-favorite bistros and bars in the nearby Canal Saint-Martin neighborhood, Place de la République, and the quiet streets of the Upper Marais. Walk a bit to the west, and you'll be in the trendy SoPi (South of Pigalle) neighborhood.
Hotel Paradiso ★★★★
125 Boulevard Diderot, 12th arrondissement
With big 9-foot-wide projection screens in each of its 36 guestrooms (including two suites), 4-star Hotel Paradiso offers thousands of on-demand movies for your watching pleasure along with lots of comfy pillows to recline on. Depending on the room you choose, you can even watch from the tub, perhaps with a glass of wine in hand.
That's not all. When the weather is good, you can also head up to the hotel's rooftop cinema to watch more movies on a large screen. When the weather is bad? No problem - go next door where the hotel owner, France's MK2 art house group run by two movie-loving brothers, has a 6-screen theater plus a 17-seat cinema for the private use of guests where from dusk until dawn, you can watch whatever is playing in the other theaters.
There's a lot more to love here, including the onsite café, karaoke room, and nearby Promenade Plantée - but the in-room movies steal the show.

New Paris Hotels Opening Soon
Disneyland Paris Hotel
Disneyland Paris Hotel, a spectacular Victorian-style property with 487 rooms and suites offering luxurious 5-star accommodations, offers the biggest perk of all to Disneyland fans: a superbly convenient location inside the Disneyland Paris Park, which makes it the only hotel with direct Disneyland access.
Since Disneyland Paris is located just a few minutes' walk from the nearby train station with service from Paris, it's super-easy to get to.
Although the iconic hotel has been closed during the past two years for top-to-bottom renovations, it is expected to be even more gorgeous, glamorous, and fun than before when it reopens in January, 2024 - in plenty of time to welcome visitors to the Paris 2024 Olympics in July!
The Disneyland Paris Hotel will give you an immersive Disney experience with Disney characters in the Castle Club Lounge, a variety of VIP benefits and services, and two gourmet dining choices, The Royal Banquet and La Table de Lumiere.
