We hear a lot about commissions, the benefits of direct bookings, payment security, etc. For us who work in the hospitality industry, it sounds simple, but it is not the case for travelers. So, if you are wondering how to book a hotel room in Paris Center and you finally want an explanation of the different reservation methods, we will explain it to you!
How to book a hotel room in Paris Center ? How it works…
Booking a room in central Paris can quickly turn out to be a long journey. Indeed, the hotel offer is very substantial and it is difficult to make a choice. Ideally, determine your location. Here we will talk about Saint-Germain-des-Prés which is in the very center of the city. The advantages of this district? Accessible by all means of transport (bus, RER, metro, taxi, and even walking!), lively by day and night, a wide choice of restaurants and cafes, a wonderful cultural life and a very Parisian atmosphere.
Now that you have chosen your location, it remains to find the hotel. Of course, you can go to Google Maps or to one of the most influential travel platforms, Booking.com. There you will find the hotels displayed on a map with their rates. Please note, it is important to know that the price disparity is authorized in France. Thus, it is strongly recommended to compare with the hotel website. Most of the time, the latter offers promotions and conditions much more interesting than on Booking.com. Distributors like Booking.com, Expedia,… take a commission on each reservation. This is why hotels seek to attract their customers to their websites.
After comparing the rates, and the offers, nothing prevents you from calling the hotel directly. Parisian hotels are open 24 hours a day and you will undoubtedly have the best available rate. You could always come across a receptionist recommending that you book online, but this is rare. We tend to forget the phone, but remember the hotelier is a human lover and will always be happy to answer you! 😀
