The French hotel group, Les Hotels de Paris, offers a number of 3-star villas with high standards, but at rates that are more often found in 2-star hotels.
Each is decorated in a different theme from English-club style to Provençal country.
You can find Les Hotels de Paris in some very good neighborhoods, from the Latin Quarter, by the Jardin des Plantes, to the 17th Arrondissement and even Montmartre.
Their secret, which they seem to keep to themselves, is that they can offer these charming rooms at budget prices.
You might as well take advantage! They're a good choice if you're looking for a charming Paris hotel on a budget.
5th Arrondissement, Latin Quarter
Behind the revolving doors of the Villa Pantheon is a garden courtyard and a bit of the English country club tradition with soft leather armchairs, tartan stripe-and-plaid drapes and parquet-wood floors.
It's in a great location in the heart of the Latin Quarter: four minutes to the Panthéon itself, ten minutes to Jardin du Luxembourg. Room service, safe, and Wi-Fi.
9th Arrondissement, Pigalle
Les Hotels de Paris' Villa Royale is an opulent boutique hotel set at the foot of Montmartre in the center of Pigalle, famous for its sexy nightlife and the Moulin Rouge.
The rooms are not numbered but named after famous French icons like Toulouse-Lautrec, Oscar Wilde and Dalida. The Villa Royale's design pays homage to the famous Paris theaters, with upholstered velvet chairs and jewel-tone rococo style. This quirky hotel is ideal for young couples or couples looking for something of the beaten path.
13th Arrondissement, Jardin des Plantes
Tucked into a side street in the 13th Arrondissement, next to a grocery store and with three Metro stations nearby, you'll be surprised by the quality of the rooms.
Everything from the beds to the fantastic shower and modern décor will make you think you've paid twice as much for this one.
Very near to Jardin des Plantes and its zoo and Grand Gallery of Evolution, Villa Lutece Port Royal is also an easy walk from the Seine.
17th Arrondissement, Ternes
This Les Hotels de Paris villa is in the 17th, one of our favorite Paris neighborhoods to live in.
It's close to Metro Ternes as well as the Champs Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe. The rooms are bright and decorated in Provençal colors with oak flooring.
But the winning point, for us at least, is that the hotel is right at the market of Rue Poncelet. When shopping at the market we would always admire the location of Villa Alessandra, set in a quiet dead-end street off the market.
