There are thousands upon thousands of hotels to choose from in Paris, but if you want to make your trip to the French capital memorable, you need to stay somewhere special, like a hotel near the Eiffel Tower. Another option is to stay near the Arc de Triomphe, the huge monument that stands at the very end of the Champs-Élysées. By booking a hotel near the Arc de Triomphe, you position yourself in the heart of Paris and can easily skip the metro and walk to the Eiffel Tower, the Place de la Concorde, the Alexandre III Bridge, the Petit Palais, and even the Louvre. And while hotels in this part of Paris can be extremely fancy and pricey, there are also some affordable, yet luxurious, places to stay that will make your French dream vacation come true.

The Peninsula Paris
The Peninsula Paris is a five-star property that is sure to impress even those who are accustomed to the finer things in life. The hotel is located in a 19th-century Haussmannian palace that has a tumultuous history: It was used as the private residence of aristocrats and royals, as a hospital during the first world war, as offices by the French government, as the headquarters of the German military high command in France during the second world war, and as the first headquarters of UNESCO, among many other usages. Today, and since 2014, it is an extremely luxurious hotel located just eight minutes on foot from the Arc de Triomphe. Despite the classic style of the 19th-century building, the 200 rooms and suites are decorated in contemporary style, with neutral and earthy hues that inspire calmness. The Peninsula stands out from other Parisian luxury hotels thanks to its views of the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs-Élysées, and the Eiffel Tower, especially from its two-Michelin starred top-floor restaurant L’Oiseau Blanc, and from the rooftop garden. Of course, because it’s a five-star hotel, there is more than one option for food and drinks — in fact, there are six of them. Like any luxury hotel worth its salt, The Peninsula Paris has an indoor pool, a fitness center, and a full spa offering facials, massages, and more.

Le Royal Monceau — Raffles Paris
Le Royal Monceau‘s exterior appearance may be classic 19th-century Parisian architecture, but inside the five-star palace, it’s not stuffy. Instead, the decor is trendy and homely, with simple, high-quality furnishings, making the space feel comfortable and familiar, like a home away from home. The luxury hotel is located eight minutes away on foot from the Arc de Triomphe, but its location, and the view it provides, are far from being its only asset. There are three restaurants, including one Italian and one Japanese venue, and two bars on site for cocktails and cigars. To make sure guests get the rest they deserve, the hostel is home to an immense spa with a sauna, steam room, and the largest pool of any luxury hotel in Paris.

Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s Paris
Located on Avenue George V, a swanky street off the Champs-Élysées, the Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s Paris (known as the Hôtel Fouquet’s for short) is only 10 minutes on foot from the Arc de Triomphe. The name Fouquet’s is more commonly associated with the brasserie on the Champs-Élysées (a haunt for all affluent and well-to-do Parisians, from actors to politicians) that hotel guests are likely to enjoy as one of the two on-site dining options. The Hôtel Fouquet’s is a five-star property whose exterior is a typically Parisian 19th-century Haussmannian building, and whose interior exudes contemporary elegance, luxury, and comfort. Even better than the views and the opulent accommodation, is the large indoor pool located under the Champs-Élysées, that is part of a full spa that also includes a sauna, a steam room, a relaxation area, a fitness center, and offers a large varieties of facial and body treatments. And when guests are properly relaxed and reinvigorated, they can take a moment to enjoy the hotel’s inner garden — an oasis in the French capital.

Paris Marriott Champs-Élysées Hotel
The Paris Marriott Champs-Élysées Hotel is a five-star property, but one that is much more affordable than many of its neighbors. Located right on the Champs-Élysées, the hotel is only 10 minutes on foot from the Arc de Triomphe and less than a 20 minutes’ walk away from the Place de la Concorde. From the outside, the property is striking in its 19th-century Haussmannian architecture, and inside, it’s just as impressive, with a grand lobby, beautiful restaurants and bars, and a lovely terrace. The 166 rooms are simply furnished and decorated, but elegant, and while there’s a well-equipped gym and a sauna, there is no spa or pool, making this particularly well-positioned luxury property much more reasonably priced.

Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel
The Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel is the most affordable five-star hotel that close to the Arc de Triomphe.

The hotel is modern inside and out, and its 118 light-filled rooms and suites are all fitted with large floor-to-ceiling windows so guests can make the most of their Parisian vacation. If you request a room with a balcony and a view of the Arc de Triomphe, you’ll pay a little more, but it’s very much worth it. There is a beautifully decorated Mediterranean restaurant-bar on site, a large terrace, and a 24-hour gym.
