Usually, the highest cost of a trip is always the ticket and the lodging. For both, the ideal is to arrange this as early as possible to get better prices.
In the case of Paris, there are over a thousand hotels, from the most luxurious to the most slippery. Overvalued regions and others not very interesting to stay. This is why it is essential to pay close attention when making a reservation.
Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to find cheap hotels in Paris without having to be misplaced. There is even a post about Paris’ neighborhoods where I give a general idea of what each region is like.

The 9ème district is a great place to escape a bit of the busiest and most touristy regions. For those wanting more peace and to feel more like they are living the Parisian way of life.
I particularly like this area very much. Quiet but at the same time well served with shops, bars, and restaurants.

Tips for booking cheap hotels in Paris
♦ Search site: Several websites allow you to search and book hotels worldwide. I really enjoy using Booking, but nothing prevents you from using any other. The great advantage of these sites is that they allow you to use various filters. For example, you can enter the price range you are willing to pay, the region you would like to stay in, breakfast included, etc.
Besides, there are hotels that you can book for free. Or cancel without paying fees, other than booking directly with the hotel.
♦ It is nice to have a feast and a thousand options for breakfast, but let’s agree we do not eat everything! Booking a hotel without breakfast will help reduce your rate. The suggestion is to have coffee in one of the many coffee shops around Paris.
