Budget hotels with great location in the centre of Paris.
It is simple to find a hotel in the centre of Paris if you do not care about how much money to spend. But if you are travelling on a tight budget, there are not so many variants to choose from. However, there is such a great number of hotels in Paris that you could always find a centrally located and not very expensive one. We bring to your attention the short list of inexpensive Paris hotels located close to the city’s most known attractions: The Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame de Paris, Tour Eiffel, Musée d'Orsay and Champs-Elysees.
Royal Magda Etoile. Rates: from €100
Royal Magda Etoile boasts a great location just a 5 minute walk from Arc de Triomphe and a few steps from Champs-Elysees. The hotel is compact in size and rather simple in design, with small but clean and elegant rooms. There are no special facilities here, however, you can enjoy restaurants, shops and cafes in the area. Offered breakfast is basic but good one. To make your sightseeing a bit easier the hotel offers special packages that include tickets to the Arc de Triomphe and the Notre Dame. The only downside about the hotel is its paper-thin walls, so perhaps its not the perfect choice for those who care a lot about their privacy and peace.
Emeraude Hotel Louvre Montana. Rates: from €160
Louvre Montana is not as cheap as you could expect, but if you are looking for a small and not very expensive hotel with its own style and excellent location, this is the right choice.

Acacias Etoile Hotel. Rates: from €145
Acacias Etoile is a tiny hotel that occupies an excellent location minutes from Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower and other attractions.

Hotel Le Notre Dame. Rates: from €169
Le Notre Dame would be an excellent accommodation option for the ones who look for something very special in the centre of Paris. Decorated by Christian LaCroix, it definitely stands out for its vivid and unusual style, contrast fabrics and old paintings which create the feeling of uniqueness and luxury. Its location allows you to enjoy views over the Seine and the Notre Dame and spend pleasant hours exploring the nearby shops, restaurants and bars. Some rooms overlook the courtyard. One downfall about the hotel is the noise coming from the street. Still, the hotel’s ambience makes it a perfect spot for lovers and those crazy about high fashion.

Elysees Ceramic Hotel meets you with elegant and comfortable atmosphere in the very centre of Paris right next to the Arc de Triomphe and some minutes’ walk from the Champs-Elysees. Choose the rooms on the higher floors to enjoy the best views. Rooms are all-fashioned but cute and quite clean and equipped with all the necessary amenities. No great facilities offered, but who cares when you are surrounded by all of them in the city? The hotel’s cozy patio is perfect to enjoy a quiet rest with your friends and family. All in all, this is a good accommodation option for those who don’t care about luxury and extra facilities but would like to spend some nights in the centre of the French capital.
Quai Voltaire. Rates: from €109
Look no further if you want to enjoy views over the Seine every morning spent in Paris. For tourists with a tight budget, this is one of the best accommodation variants. The hotel’s location is a good starting point for a visit to the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay and the Notre Dame Cathedral while its rooms will make you feel a little bit closer to the high society. The city views are best to enjoy from the little balconies in the hotel rooms. But mind that you will have to put up with the traffic noises to see all this beauty. Lounge, bar, continental and a la carte breakfast are in the short list of services offered by the hotel.
Hotel Belfast Paris. Rates: from €140
Superb location is what you think of first when you come to Hotel Belfast.
