Cheap hotels near Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France

Located in a former railway station on the Left Bank of the Seine, the spectacular Musée d’Orsay is devoted to French art from 1848-1915, including the world’s largest collection of paintings by the impressionists.

The building itself is half the attraction. Constructed for the 1900 Exhibition Universelle, the station served the Paris-Orléans Railway and was the first electrified railway station in the world. After escaping demolition in the 1970s, the building was transformed into an art museum and opened in December 1986.

Today, the museum is a must visit for lovers of art and architecture alike. Its unique interior still embraces its Beaux-Arts past, and is an appropriate setting for taking in art from the same era.

Hotels near the Musee d’Orsay: The museum is located along the Seine in the pricey 7th arrondissement. There’s nothing cheapo about this area, although cheap sleeps can be found a 15-minute walk north near the Louvre, to the west near the Eiffel Tower, or to the east in St-Germain des Près.
