Paris is one of the top destination cities in the world and the favourite capital of many a traveller for good reason. With so much great culture, history, food and sights on offer to enjoy it's easy to find a long weekend in Paris fly by and still not get the time to do everything. Finding cheap accommodation in Paris is essential if you are to spend any time here trying to explore what this city of light has to offer.
Thankfully Paris is quite easy to navigate as it's broken up into 20 numerical districts known as arrondissements. Though accommodation is spread out over the city most of the cheaper hotels and hostels are located on the east side of this great capital city of France.
Of all the districts in Paris most of the best budget accommodation can be found here. The 10th district is however best known for both the Canal St. Martin and the great Gare du Nord train station. For those wanting to enjoy weekend strolls along a Parisian canal you'll find the streets along Canal St. Martin traffic free on Saturday evenings and all day on Sundays. Lined with trees, quaint bridges and several cafés it makes for a pleasant afternoon stroll.
Place de la République to the south has a host of pleasant bars, cafés and restaurants to enjoy. For those looking to get into the centre of Paris or surrounding attractions the metro is your key with Place de la République linking to the rest of the city with ease.
If you are looking to sample some of the best local cafés, bars and small restaurants in Paris then staying near 11e arrondissement is a good choice. Place de Bastille is filled with restaurants, cafés and bars favoured by expats, trendy Parisians and many long-stay foreigners. With a tinge of Latino tastes slipping into many establishments it's perfect for a multicultural night out.
Meanwhile along Rue Oberkampf you'll find even more local establishments that meet many traditional French requirements for a café. With neighbouring districts to the west close to the centre of Paris finding affordable accommodation here is perfect for foodies and wine lovers alike!
The train station Gare de Lyon is the main travel hub in arrondissement 12e which is the largest of Paris' districts. Being neighbours with the wine and café friendly district 11e it also borders two city centre districts with top sights like Notre Dame, The Panthéon, the Museum of Natural History, the Grand Mosque, and Paris city hall. Meanwhile within the district itself there's Opéra Bastille which is one of the premier venues in the world for performing arts.
Nature lovers will adore the over 4km of Promenade Plantée and Bois de Vincennes. For history buffs do take a visit to Lafayettes Tomb where you can see the grave of George Washington's friend and fellow soldier General Lafayette. Budget accommodation is widespread throughout this district while Gare de Lyon and Gare de Bercy give you metro access to the rest of Paris' fantastic attractions.
mindseye29 The owner and staff were very helpful. Good, big breakfast. It is located outside of the city, but near an RER station It took about 45-60 minutes with wait times to get to downtown. The neighborhood looked questionable at first, but it was fine. Newly remodeled and very interesting decor.
Garvie4 I had a really fun time in Paris staying at the 3 ducks. It was great meeting the other travelers and we all had a great time together. The location was great in a safe and clean neighborhood. The bar was a good place to hangout after dinner and before going out at night. The staff could've been a little friendlier but I would definitely recommend this hostel!
audrey_ckl conveniently located near a metro station, with supermarkets with a 5 minute walk from the apartment. apartment is clean and there is wifi. however, apartment doesn't have an elevator and i had to drag my luggage up 6 floors
butterfly- After reading some not so impressed reviews of this hotel, I was slightly dubious about booking but for the purpose of my trip this was perfect. I travelled with my boyfriend and we both found the hotel perfectly welcoming. We arrived a little earlier than anticipated but followed the directions given on our confirmation and found the hotel easily. It is exactly where it say, halfway up a sidestreet, down a dead end cul-de-sac. The owner was lovely, welcomed us warmly and we were allowed to our room straight away. We were on the 6th floor, but there is a lift to take you to the fifth and then it is a short flight of stairs to the 6th. Lift isn't for the faint-hearted as it is so tiny that you can barely turn around but it saves a fair but of stair climbing! Our room was perfectly clean upon arrival, complete with a little shower room and sink. The toilet was shared between the members of the floor, but this didn't cause any problems as it was only down the corridor. We could see the top dome of Sacre-Coeur from our window. Beds were comfortable, although a little saggy in the middle but this didn't seem to hinder any sleeping! Water pressure in the shower was a bit temperamental as it often just stopped working, only to come back once it was turned off and turned on again. Breakfast was served in a tiny room with an at seat service. For each person, there is a glass of fresh orange juice, a piece of baguette and a croissant along with a choice of tea or coffee - nothing marvellous but sets you up for the day. My only negative about this hotel was the fact that the cleaning seemed to be done at odd hours of the day. Despite our room being clean when we arrived, we were still disturbed by the cleaner during an afternoon rest - who just knocked and entered without waiting for a response. This also happened on the last day we were there too. I would completely recommend this hotel to people who are looking for a base for activities and are going to be spending most of their day out and about in Paris as we did!
Auntpol No hot water - We only had warm water in our shower one time (and it quickly turned cold) (Probably because of a shared system). Other than that the place is really nice and the staff was friendly. Don't expect too much from the breakfast - it is literally just bread and jam.
littledbro The hotel was really nice. Everyone was very friendly and polite. The room was clean and had a lovely view and the Boulevard.
nazzzzx May seem to be located far from the city centre, but in a city with so many metro lines and such well-developed public transport, that shouldn't make any difference for an ordinary tourist. Breakfast is fine, rooms were neat at the time of our stay, as I think this was the first season of the hostel, this might change for the worse. You really shouldn't worrry about your belongings, the lockers are safe, and I even forgot my wallet at the front desk, but got it back untouched. After all, they are running a hostel, they live off tourists, it would be insane of them to build up a negative reputation. All in all, your money is well spent, I can recommend this hostel heartily to all fellow travellers.
