Cheap hotels near Les Halles in Paris, France
The Les Halles that was once the city’s central marketplace and was deemed the “Belly of Paris” by Emile Zola is today just a memory in the mind of the city’s senior residents. The market was demolished in 1971 and was replaced by a rather unfortunate underground, American-style shopping mall (this after a long period during which the site was just a construction pit). The name still remains, though, and refers to both the mall (officially called the "Forum des Halles") and the neighborhood.
Just north of the Louvre, the area around Les Halles is a central and enormously convenient location. It’s a short walk from here to most sights in Paris, and the Châtelet-Les Halles metro/RER station is the biggest mass transit hub in the city, offering service to all of Paris as well as to Charles de Gaulle airport.
The neighborhood also has its fair share of charms, with the nearby, pedestrian-only rue Montorgueil offering cute shops, cafés and restaurants. On the flip-side, the rue St-Denis, also close by, is one of the seedier (although still safe) red-light districts in Paris.
Cheap hotels near Les Halles: Perhaps due to its convenient location, the area around Les Halles is home to a number of affordable hotels. Travel a few steps further, and the selection expands even more, as the Marais and our "Near the Louvre" neighborhoods host a wealth of cheap sleeps.
The affordable Hotel du Cygne is located just steps away from Les Halles, and the Hotel Tiquetonne, perhaps our most popular hotel in Paris, is located just a few blocks north. (Neither of these hotels offers online reservations, however. You’ll have to contact the hotels directly.)

Address 13 Rue Des Deux Boules (1st: Châtelet / Palais Royale / Louvre)
The two-star hotel impresses with its super-central location, just off the rue de Rivoli and five blocks east of the Louvre. Given the location and it's low rates, the Flor Rivoli represents an excellent value.
