Best budget hotel Paris

The modern and affordable Hotel Chopin is located inside Passage Jouffroy in Paris’ 9th arrondissement.

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. In the 9th, but just on the border of the 2nd arrondissement, walking distance to Galeries Lafayette, the Louvre, and great Metro connections.

Hotel Chopin – Location

Inside one of Paris’ charming old covered shopping galleries, Passage Jouffroy, in the 9th arrondissement (but just on the edge of the 2nd) – near theaters, shopping, the Opera, and the Louvre. Grands Boulevards and Richelieu-Drouot Metro stations are both under a 5-minute walk from the hotel.

  • Address: 46 Passage Jouffroy
  • Nearest Metro: Grands Boulevards, Richelieu – Drouot
  • Taxi: Airport taxis to central Paris are charged at a flat rate. Fare from Charles de Gaulle Airport is €55, fare from Orly Airport is €35.
  • Private Transfer: We use and recommend Welcome Pickups car service. Booking through a private car service will cost only a bit more than a taxi – about €61 from CDG and €57 from Orly, but can be worth it to avoid the long taxi queue and for the convenience of paying ahead.

Hotel Chopin – The Basics

  • Ages: All ages are welcome. Triple rooms accommodate three people, in one double and one twin bed. Cribs are available on request, but the hotel’s small room size does not allow for additional beds to be brought in.

  • Parking: No parking. The nearest parking is Drouot Car Park, for 31€/day.
