When visiting a new city, figuring out where exactly to stay is one of the most important questions. When visiting Paris, choosing a hotel in the right neighbourhood should definitely be a priority. The first time I traveled to Paris, we stayed at an Air BNB in the 12th arrondissement and regretted it deeply. While the neighbourhood itself was lively and full of local flavour, it was located far from most of the sights we had planned to see in the city. In the end, I felt like we waisted much of our trip in the underground subway tubes instead of sightseeing.
On our most recent trip to Paris, we knew we didn’t want to make the same mistake we did the fist time. This time we decided to stay at the Trinite Hausman in the Pigalle neighbourhood. Although we originally thought we wanted to stay in the more luxurious 8th arrondissement, we absolutely loved staying in 9th. There were so many wonderful bakeries and restaurants in the area that we frequented daily during our trip and getting around the city from our hotel was quick and easy.
Today, I wanted to share my favourite neighbourhoods in Paris and my recommendations on where to stay during your next trip to Paris.
