Hotel Chopin is a charming and affordable hotel uniquely situated inside one of Paris’s oldest covered galleries. In continual operation since 1846, this hotel’s tucked-in location allows for quiet nights, while still being convenient to the sights, shops, and restaurants of central Paris. Beds and bathrooms are comfortably modern, while room decor is tastefully traditional – think patterned wallpaper and antique furnishing. There’s no air conditioning, but fans are provided in each room. Just on the border of the 2nd arrondissement, walking distance to Galeries Lafayette, the Louvre, and great Metro connections.
