Oyster knows what travelers look for in hotels. When we review properties in person around the world, we evaluate how every feature stacks up against the competition, from the rooms to the pools to the restaurants. So if you're planning a vacation on a budget and need a place to start, you've come to the right place. Take a look at our expert top picks for value in Paris and get inspired!

  1. Standard Design Hotel

    The 36-room Standard Design Hotel is located in the lively Bastille district. This boutique property features creative, black and white decor in the common lounges, cozy breakfast room, and rooms. A different accent color sets rooms apart from one another, though they all have the same appealing carpets, bedspreads, and light fixtures as well as modern bathrooms and large flat-screen TVs. Though the hotel is lacking in amenities -- there is no gym, spa, or on-site restaurant -- it is one of the best values in Paris. Not only does it offer low rates, free Wi-Fi, and a location near popular nightlife, but its chic design goes above and beyond expectations for a mid-range hotel, putting it at the top of our list.

  2. Hotel Britannique

    The 39-room Hotel Britannique is a charming, mid-range boutique property in the heart of Paris. It has a prime location in the 1st arrondissement within walking distance of major attractions such as the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral. Warm, cozy rooms have flat-screen TVs, double-glazed windows, upscale toiletries, and free Wi-Fi. The same homey decor is present in the common areas, including a lounge with comfortable couches and a laptop guests can use free of charge. The combination of reasonable prices, charm, and location make this one of the best values in the city.

  3. Hotel Joyce

    Its somewhat removed location and slightly steeper (but still affordable) prices keep the Hotel Joyce from being in our top two, but it's pretty close; the chic rooms -- with free Wi-Fi -- rival even those at the Standard Design Hotel, and most come with French balconies, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. Quirky would be a good word to describe the hotel -- oddities like car seats (with seatbelts) and funky light fixtures hang from the ceilings. The unique design elements mix well with the historical aspects of the hotel -- like the stone walls and the glass-roofed solarious, where free breakfast and afternoon snacks are served.

  4. Hotel Palm Opera

    The 38-room Hotel Palm Opera is a well-run boutique with a fantastic central location. Rooms feature modern Danish-style minimalist decor, flat-screen TVs, and clean bathrooms. Amenities are bare-bones (there's little else other than a small on-site dining room for breakfast), but it does feature freebies such as Wi-Fi and sodas. Its rates are often slightly lower than those at Hotel Joyce, but it does not offer free breakfast.

  5. Hotel du Lion d'Or

    This 26-room basic but contemporary hotel is a stand-out choice for two reasons: reasonable room rates, and the location! The property is situated in the prime 1st arrondissement of Paris, within steps of Le Louvre and Tuileries Gardens; guests will be hard-pressed to find a more affordable option in this area. Though the hotel itself certainly falls into the budget category, it's more modern than some may expect. Rooms are small and no-frills (they're not in the same category as the other hotels on this list), but they have fresh bedding, flat-screen TVs, small desks, and up-to-date bathrooms. For more living space, the hotel offers apartments (studio, large flat and duplex size) that come with lounge/dining areas and full kitchens. Guests can start the day with espresso and free newspapers in the stylish breakfast room decorated with exposed stone walls, and free Wi-Fi is an additional perk.
