Founded in the 3rd century BC, the city has for long remained a prosperous trading centre in Europe. It was the central point for the French Revolution, and in the subsequent years, it became an important centre of finance, commerce, fashion, science, and arts, a position it still holds firm today. Dubbed as the fashion capital of the world, it is home to the some of the finest and most luxurious designer brands and cosmetics. The city is also home to the most visited art museum in the world, the Louvre, in addition to the Musée d'Orsay.

Accommodation in Paris

Paris offers more than 1500 well-known hotel and other lodging options for all kinds of travellers. From palace like accommodations to tiny one room cabanas, the city offers something for everyone, whatever your budget, length of stay or personal preferences.

In Paris, you have a wide variety of charming, opulent, cosy or basic accommodation options to choose from. Majority of the rooms tend to be small compared to global standards. In addition, many hotels operate out of historic buildings protected by city regulations, which means they can't do major structural changes, hence resulting in non-provision of modern amenities. Unless you are staying in a really expensive hotel, be prepared for minimal facilities. Smaller hotels still don’t have elevators and don't offer toiletries or washcloths. At the same time, almost all hotels have in-room TV with cable channels, telephones, and hair dryers in the bathrooms and Wi-Fi. Most hotels have air-conditioning, but Paris weather is seldom very hot, hence you won't need to use them a lot.

Since the city is one of the most visited places on the globe, hotels book up fast, hence it is always best to book well in advance. Peak season, as with the rest of Europe is summer, but Paris also attracts tourists from America and the rest of the world around Christmas time. Even what would traditionally be considered as off-peak season, the hotels in the city might get fully booked due to some festival or an event taking place.

This information is correct as of January 2016.

It is packed. A taxi driver said that there are twice as many tourists as their population that visit every day. But, there is a reason for all that. The food is incredible, the place is littered landmarks and statues throughout. The only thing you’ll regret is leaving early. I’m going to revisit the discussion about food as I don’t think I touched on it enough. My mouth is watering just thinking about macaroons and other pastries.
