Top tips for finding the perfect France hotel
As in many countries, hotels in France are given a rating of 1 to 5 stars by the Ministry of Tourism. While the rating process is objective, it is based on administrative criteria that are somewhat outdated, such as the area of the reception hall, percentage of rooms with an en suite bathroom, etc. Try to look for something that will suit your individual needs by reading guides and user reviews.
If you are looking to appreciate culture and art, Paris’ museums and monuments to the resplendent past are hard to look past, with iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and The Louvre in the heart of the French capital. The 5-star Hôtel de Berri, a Luxury Collection Hotel is near the Champs-Élysées, described as the most beautiful avenue in the world, and therefore also the Arc de Triomphe. It showcases a private modern art collection and reproductions of classical sculptures from the Louvre. Or better yet, visit the real Louvre conveniently by staying at Le Roch Hotel & Spa, an elegant boutique hotel just a stone’s throw from the Louvre and Opéra.
Coming to France to hit the slopes? The high altitude of Val Thorens, Rhone-Alpes, Alpes du Nord (Northern Alps) means you’ll see good snow from early December to April, but you might like to steer clear of Christmas and the school holidays if you’re not a fan of crowds. With nearly 200 world-class ski resorts in Rhone-Alpes alone, you’ll be skiing, snowboarding, and ski jumping your time away at hotels like Heliopic Hotel & Spa.

FAQs when booking a hotel in France
Where can I go for a restaurant with some views?
Paris is world famous for its cuisine, but with a rooftop restaurant you’ll be able to admire the 2000-year-old city and its historical landmarks while you dine. Ibis Paris Gare Du Nord TGV is close to Maison Blanche, a first-class restaurant on the rooftop of the Champs-Elysées Theatre where you can enjoy views of the Eiffel Tower while you dine.
Where should I stay for a wine tasting trip?
France is almost synonymous with wines, with names of places like Champagne, Bordeaux, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and Burgundy frequently appearing on the labels of bottles. While each is worth a visit (and a taste), Bordeaux is perhaps best known as the capital of France’s wine region. From the La Cité du Vin - literally the Wine City, you’ll be able to learn all about the rich culture of wine in the region, as well as book wine tasting tours at famous châteaux like Saint-Émilion, Saint-Julien, Margaux, and Médoc.
