8 The Most Expensive Hotels in Paris (Current Prices)

| |

The capital of France, Paris, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Paris has a reputation for being the most romantic city with a great fashion, cultural, and gastronomic history. 

“The City of Love” is undoubtedly one of the most popular vacation destinations due to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, and many more sights to visit. 

Although Paris is also considered one of the most expensive cities in Europe, it still attracts over 30 million tourists yearly. And while there are around 2,000 hotels in Paris, only a handful are considered luxurious, with Forbes 5-star rating. 

The hotels, restaurants, and spas fulfill almost 900 rigorous standards before achieving the Forbes five-star rating. When it comes to hotels, they need to have top service, distinctive drinks, expensive furniture, hardworking housekeeping, delicious meals, and thoughtful guest room amenities. 

Only around 323 hotels worldwide have the 5-star rating given by Forbes, including 30 five and four-star-rated hotels in Paris.
