Cheap hotels in Louvre / Châtelet (1st), Paris

Main attractions: The central 1st arrondissement on the Right Bank includes Châtelet, Palais Royale, Place Vendôme, the Louvre and adjacent Tuileries Gardens.

Neighborhood atmosphere: The area around Châtelet is mostly known for the towering Gothic 16th-century Tour St. Jacques; the busy contemporary theater/opera house Théâtre du Châtelet; and the Métro-RER station Châtelet-Les Halles, a sprawling commuter hub. The area around the stately Palais Royale, the tony Place Vendôme (where Coco Chanel lived for many years at the Ritz) and the Louvre is busy during the day, but fairly quiet in the evenings.

Affordability: While the area is home to a number of budget-friendly hotels, its tourist magnet location means eating out and shopping can be pricey (though American chef Daniel Rose’s Spring restaurant is worth a splurge if you can get a table). The Tuileries Gardens are a haven where you can spend hours strolling and Parisian-watching, free of charge.

Stay Here If: You want a convenient, tourist-friendly location in the heart of the city close to the Louvre and other attractions including Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie.

Stay Elsewhere If: You prefer a more intimate neighborhood feel, and a less frenetic and touristy atmosphere.

Hotel Flor Rivoli, Paris

Address 13 Rue Des Deux Boules (Louvre / Châtelet (1st))

It’s hard to find a hotel more central than the Hotel Flor Rivoli, a simple two-star sleeper located steps from the Châtelet Metro stop. Given the location, doubles for €110 is a great deal.
