Everyone takes a close look at a hotel’s star rating before booking, we all know that two stars is basic accommodation while four or five stars is sheer luxury. Did you know that stars are also awarded for on-site restaurants, health spas and fitness centers?
This may cause some confusion, because this may mean that a three star hotel is actually as good as the four stars you were looking at but doesn’t have an on-site restaurant or swimming pool.
Four Star Luxury
In Paris, you can expect to pay for the higher star ratings with four star hotels costing around 200 Euros per night, such as the prestigious Napoleon Hotel, just a short stroll from Champs Elysees and Arc de Triomphe or the beautiful Horset Opera, which is conveniently situated close to Galeries Lafayette department store.
But what do you get for your money when you stay in a four star establishment? Well the first is luxury and comfort, then there is parking, an on-site restaurant, bar, newspaper service, airport shuttle and free wi-fi.
Three Star Elegance
If travelling for a family holiday, a three star hotel may be just what you are looking for. These range from 140 to 199 Euro. A room at Hotel Le Walt offers you a comfortable bedroom with views of the Eiffel Tower, you also enjoy a buffet breakfast served to your room. There is a bar, wi-fi and a safety deposit box for you to store all your valuables while out sightseeing.
On the higher end of three stars is the elegant Elysa-Luxembourg, offering luxurious rooms with exquisite marble bathrooms. The perfect location for the romantic getaway.
Three Star Comfort
Three star hotels are considerably cheaper costing from 110 to 140 Euro per night. A good example is the comfortable Best Western Trianon Rive Gauche set in the city center and is an ideal base if you intend doing a lot of sightseeing while visiting Paris.
