Paris has a huge choice of accommodation, including boutique gems with exquisite decor, whether antique-filled and romantic or cutting-edge designer-chic. You can stay in the room Oscar Wilde died in, or in the former embassy where the Treaty of Paris, ending the American Revolution, was signed.
Although the city has more than 150,000 beds in over 1500 establishments, you’ll still need to book well ahead during the warmer months (April to October) and all public and school holidays.

Breakfast is rarely included, and heading to a cafe is often better value. Paris's most enticing boutique hotels include the following.
