You know how some people look at houses they can’t afford on Zillow? Well I go down the rabbit hole of places I want to stay whenever I open my travel apps. I needed a little distraction this week so I’ve been scrolling through airbnb and booking.com making little wishlists to refer back to later. It’s always helpful to have options saved when you actually get ready to plan your visit.
When you are planning a trip to Paris you want to think about the neighborhood that is right for you. Andrew and I love the 18th arrondissement but we have also stayed in the 6th, 5th and 13th arrondissements. To learn more about the Paris neighborhoods check out this post by Solo Sophie. Here are some listings that I thought looked super cute and in great neighborhoods!

18th Arrondissement- Montmartre
Hôtel des Arts Montmartre is a less than 10 minute walk to the Sacré-Coeur Basilica. The rooms have a funky edginess which you should expect when in an arts hotel. There is also a beautiful spiral staircase that takes you to each floor. The hotel also has an elevator, so don’t worry about climbing all of those stairs if you don’t want to.
Aparthotel Adagio Paris Montmartre has all of the amenities of a hotel but gives you that live like a local feel. Each apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen so you can have your own apero while you rest from your busy day. There are also common areas throughout the building, including a kid’s corner. Sacré-Coeur Basilica is just a five minute walk.
14th Arrondissement- Montparnasse
Voco Montparnasse is in a great, central location with the metro right out front. Some rooms have balconies and the hotel has a very modern art deco vibe. I want to sit in their garden terrace and sip rose.
13th Arrondissement- Gobelins
Hôtel Saint Marcel is close to Gare de Lyon and Le Jardin des Plantes. The rooms are cozy, staff is friendly and the breakfast is quite good. Andrew and I have stayed here and would again. Some rooms have little balconies too.
Hôtel Verlaine is a family run hotel right near La Butte-aux-Cailles and off the beaten path. It’s often referred to as a real hidden gem. Close to shops, the metro and plenty of restaurants. The owner even has a cute pup on site. (I couldn’t find any photos to share on here but there are plenty on the site!)
6th Arrondissement- Luxembourg & Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Veeve – Haussmann Beauty is a three bedroom apartment, SO perfect if you are traveling with a group or with kids. It has a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave,and a washing machine! The views from each room look gorgeous and it’s dripping with that classic French charm. You may just want to move right in.

Millésime Hôtel is located in a 17th century building that is just a 10-minute walk from The Louvre and about 15 minutes from Jardin du Luxembourg. It has a stunning courtyard garden where I can picture spending a lazy morning with a cafe blanc.
4th Arrondissement- Hôtel-de-Ville
Hotel Saint-Louis en L’Isle is 800 feet from Cathedral Notre Dame and the Latin Quarter. Located in a very quiet area in the middle of Paris, the Isle Saint-Louis is a village with a prestigious history. The hotel has exposed stones walls and oak beams which is what I picture when I think of a Paris apartment. A buffet breakfast is served daily in a stone vaulted room, how lovely is that?
Hotel de la Bretonnerie is like stepping back in time. The hotel is a former private home in the heart of the Marais,dating back to the 17th century and the rooms still have all of that character from a bygone era. Because of this all of the rooms are very different, which is really fun.
2nd Arrondissement- Bourse
Hôtel Edgar features a funky, contemporary décor and a lovely terrace. There are headboards with toy cars on them, table lamps mounted on the ceilings and walls, action figures on the chandeliers. It is quirky. Each guest room at Hôtel Edgar is uniquely designed by a different artist which is really neat.
I hope this post gave you some ideas and you are ready to book your next trip! I know I’m ready. 🙂
