Don't expect a bellman or porter to deliver your bags to your room. That doesn't happen in Paris, unless you're staying in a 5-Star luxury hotel.
The best thing is that our recommended boutique hotels don't come with a five-star price tag. You'll find boutique hotels in the city's best areas — from the Latin Quarter to the Left Bank to Champs-Elysées.
In Paris, hotel rooms are small, even in many luxury hotels. Boutique hotels are "intimate" (another way of saying "small") — but what they lack in space, they make up in charm.
Don't be surprised if your hotel elevator the size of a closet with barely enough room for one person and a suitcase! Remember, Paris is an old city with old buildings, and elevators were an afterthought, fit into whatever space could be found.
Often the breakfast room will be found in the cellar of the hotel, but breakfasts can be expensive. Save money and get a better Parisian experience by heading to a local boulangerie or café for a more satisfying petit déjeuner (breakfast) of coffee and croissant or other freshly baked pastries.
Service in boutique hotels in Paris is usually very good. The front desk will be able to help you make dinner reservations and recommend the best things to see and do in the neighborhood.
