Paris Hotels for Budget Travelers
Ah, Paris -- the art and fashion capital of the world is known for its over-the-top luxury properties and bohemian boutiques. Some -- or really, most people -- can’t afford a stay at the iconic, Hotel Plaza Athenee or the Hotel Mathis Elysees Matignon, but that doesn’t mean they have to skimp on their Parisian experience. Even the most budget-conscious travelers are sure to find value options without having to turn to crowded, 6-bed hostel rooms or chain hotels near the airport -- especially with the help of this guide.

The street and neighborhood are quiet, but within walking distance are train stations, the Moulin Rouge and restaurants. The rooms are bright with white walls, murals, and bold accents. Travelers on a budget -- and with a bit of a good sense of humor -- should check this place out.
Rooms on the upper floors are particularly desirable, as some have balconies and views of the Eiffel Tower. With free Wi-Fi and a convenient location for reaching popular museums and attractions, Hotel WO is a good pick.
Free Wi-Fi is available sometimes, and a small business area can assist when it’s down (which is often). For more living space, the hotel does offer apartments (studio, large flat and duplex size) that come with lounge/dining areas and full kitchens. Guests can start the day with espresso and free newspapers in the stylish breakfast room decorated with exposed stone walls.
Bathrooms are equally funky and offer shower/tub combos. The quirky breakfast room has outdoor seating and serves all-day breakfast and 24-hour room service is available. While budget travelers might be drawn to this property for its location and price, there have been some complaints about cleanliness and heating issues.
Front-facing rooms are soundproofed, but may still experience noise from the busy street and above-ground train tracks. The hotel does not offer a full restaurant or bar, but there are plenty of options nearby, including La Villa Corse directly next door. Wi-Fi is free throughout is another added value when staying at this hotel.
