Best Time to visit
Paris is an all-season city, but the best time to visit is late spring, summer and the Christmas holidays. During the high-season in the summer, flights and hotels are fairly expensive, therefore it is advised to book in advance, both for your stay and the popular attractions. If you prefer spending your money on french croissants, you should consider getting there in the winter, avoiding January as it hosts the Fashion week and hotel rates are higher.
Budget Hotels Areas
Paris offers accommodation for every occasion, camp sites outside the city and hostels for the budget travellers, to boutique and luxurious 5-star hotels. Hotel prices vary, and depend on location. The older the hotel and closer to the city centre, the higher the price. The suburbs are a good choice for budget travellers, where you can use the city’s public transport networks for some additional savings. Consider the Latin Quarter and Montmartre as another budget option.
