2021 EUROPE UPDATE – At the moment, France is not open for tourism. Many counties that are open for tourism are requiring the traveler to present “results of a negative virology COVID-19 test (most require a PCR test for example), carried out less than 72 hours before the flight. And many airports, hotels and resorts have health screenings in place. For more information regarding entry into France, I would refer you to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website (English version).
Paris Hotel Recommendations
In our most recent trip to Paris, we stayed at this 4-star hotel Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel is set at the foot of the Eiffel Tower and the Trocadero. Talk about the best location in Paris! It’s a very contemporary style hotel, but it offers an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower (so make sure you get an Eiffel Tower balcony room)!
Le Narcisse Blanc & Spa is located in Paris, in the 7th district. Invalides and Tour-Maubourg Metro Stations are a 5-minute walk from the property. The Eiffel Tower is a 15-minute walk from Le Narcisse Blanc & Spa, while Tuileries Garden is a 19-minute walk from the property.
The Novotel Paris Les Halles is located in the heart of Paris. From this hotel, you can go shopping in the nearby districts of Rue de Rivoli, Boulevard Haussmann or Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore.

This Paris hotel is conveniently located to the Louver Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Marais district and the Georges Pompidou Museum, with them all being no more than a 10-minute walk away.
This Paris hotel is the epitome of Parisian living (IMO). And let’s not forget to mention how close it is to a few landmarks. T/he Tuileries Garden is 1,650 feet from Ritz Paris, while Orsay Museum is 2,950 feet away. Metro Station Concorde is 5 minutes’ walk away.
This Paris hotel is a hotel palace located across the Seine and facing the Eiffel Tower. It reflects both Asian hospitality and French art de viver.

Popular Questions About Traveling to Paris
Q: Flying to Paris?
A: Easy peezy. I recommend flying into Charles De Gaulle Airport. It just a quick train ride into the city center. If arriving on a weekday morning, just be mindful of the train routes that way you can move as efficiently as possible during the morning rush hour. I like using Google Maps when navigating the city. Don’t forget to download the city center map from Google Maps ahead of time, if you ever have connection issues, you will always know that you map works because you downloaded it ahead of time.
Q: When is the best time to visit Paris?
A: I would definitely have to say the summer time. However, that is also the most expensive and most popular time to travel to Paris. uly is the hottest month in Paris, with average temperatures in the upper 70s. If you travel during the Fall/Winter, just layer up and expect some rain here or there.
Q: What are the most popular Arrondissements?
1st Arrondissement: the 1st is home to many of the city’s main sightseeing spots, including the Louvre, the Royal Palace, and lots of touristy shopping. We stayed in an amazing, cozy airbnb in this area and we did not regret it AT ALL.
6th Arrondissement: Arguably the most “livable” area of the city. Fancy, bu not bougie. Cafes everywhere. And a beautiful park, Luxembourg Gardens, is found in this neighborhood too.
7th Arrondissement: Tourist capital, but you definitely have to visit and explore this area.
8th Arrondissement: The 8th is a very popular neighborhood in the city. It’s home to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysees.
Q: What is the best way to travel around the city?
A: When you’re going farther or get too tired to walk, the public transportation in Paris is super useful and an inexpensive way to get around the city. We became pros at the metro!
