Hotels in Paris near Palais des Congres de Paris

Stretching northeast of the Arc de Triomphe, the 17th arrondissement combines the sophisticated elegance of a middle-class Paris neighborhood with the artistic creativity of the flourishing Batignolles district. The 17th arrondissement is renowned for its stunning Haussmannian architecture, defined by wide, straight, tree-lined boulevards. Away from the tourist traps, this is where you'll find a slice of real Parisian life–from sophisticated locals to the 'BoBo' (bohemian-bourgeois) residents of the Batignolles, the former stomping ground of writers such as Emile Zola and Paul Verlaine.

Hotels in the 17th arrondissement

Because this area is slightly off the beaten track, you'll find a wide variety of good-quality accommodation at reasonable prices. There are a decent number of hotels in the 17th arrondissement, including a good selection of aparthotels, B&Bs, and hostels. For a taste of historic Paris, settle into the 4-star Regent's Garden Hotel, and soak up the historic ambiance of this former mansion, built by Napoleon III. For accommodation near the Arc de Triomphe, try one of the affordable yet stylish self-catering apartments in the Residhotel Impérial Rennequin. For a little indulgence, try the colorful decor and relaxing spa treatments of Les Jardins de la Villa, a popular 4-star hotel near the Palais des Congres.

Things to see in the 17th arrondissement

An iconic part of French history, the monumental Arc de Triomphe marks the southern corner of the 17th arrondissement. Ascend the interior of this triumphal arch to view exhibits and inscriptions honoring those who fought and died in the French revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. Avid shoppers will relish an afternoon browsing around Wagram-Ternes, a mid- to high-end shopping district known for its popular brands and labels. On a fine day, head to Square des Batignolles, the largest green area in the 17th arrondissement. This English-style, naturalistic park is quite different to most manicured French parks, and has a popular playground for pint-sized visitors to Paris. For a day of quality food and entertainment, visit the vast Palais des Congres convention center. The center houses designer boutiques, gourmet restaurants, cafés and bakeries as well as a concert venue that regularly plays hosts to world-famous artists.

Good for families

A family-friendly hotel in the 17th arrondissement provides a great base that’s close to the main attractions, yet situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Hotels near the Arc de Triomphe tend to be more affordable than those in neighborhoods heavily frequented by tourists, which is great news if you're traveling with young tots in tow. When they’re done with the playground in the Square de Batignolles, tiny thrill seekers can use up their excess energy by ascending the 234 steps to the viewing platform of the Arc de Triomphe, or by catching an adrenaline-filled show at the nearby Palais des Congres.

How to get to the 17th arrondissement

The 17th arrondissement's location near the Boulevard Périphérique (Paris's orbital road) is ideal if you're traveling to Paris by air as the neighborhood is just a 30-minute drive from both Charles de Gaulle-Roissy Airport and Orly Airport. You can also take an RER-B train from Charles de Gaulle-Roissy Airport, change at Châtelet Les Halles, and continue on the RER-A to the Charles de Gaulle Etoile stop, which is just on the outskirts of the 17th arrondissement. Well-served by a number of metro lines (lines 2, 3, and 13), the neighborhood itself is also easy to get around on foot.
