Take a look at the best party hotels in 9th Arrondissement (Opera Garnier).
This mid-range boutique hotel, aptly located next to the Olympia music hall in the 9th Arrondissement, draws music lovers seeking good value and a central location, walking distance to the Tuileries Gardens. Its 47 rooms are colorful and music-themed, with record albums used as art and guitar paintings on the walls. The communal areas are fun to wander -- check out the carpets decorated with stars, the sequined elevator, and silhouettes on the walls. Near the front desk there is a multimedia area with headphones where guests can listen to CDs. Those unmoved by the musical theme might prefer the jaunty and very highly regarded Hôtel Joke, which is in the same price category and Arrondissement.
Housed in a 19th-century Haussmann-style building, the W Paris is chic, hip, and luxurious. It's in the conveniently close to many of the Right Bank's best-known attractions, including the Palais Garnier, home of the Paris Opera. The 91 rooms are modern but can be small, dark, and a bit quirky, with minimalist decor and open-plan bathrooms. Features include a 24-hour gym, an on-site nightclub, and a trendy restaurant. For a youthful vibe with a more authentic Parisian feel, consider the lovely and slightly cheaper Hotel De Nell nearby instead.
The two-pearl Vintage Hostel is an ideal place for solo travelers and groups of friends looking for a budget-friendly spot with a youthful vibe and playful design. The 48-room hostel provides typical dormitory-style or private rooms, some of which have balconies. There’s a free breakfast in the morning, a fitness center, and a small bar that serves local beers. It’s well located near the Gare du Nord railway station, making it convenient for those who want to get around town by metro. Budget travelers may also want to consider Generator Hostel, which has a rooftop bar and a modern chic style.
