There is only one officially Gay hotel in Paris: Le Central. But don't worry, almost every hotel in Le Marais District warmly welcome lots of gay & lesbian guests. There is no problem in Paris when two guys or two girls ask for a king or queen size bed instead of twin beds.
Why don't Paris have several openly gay hotels like others big cities? Is it the famous French exception culturelle? It seems so when even an international gay accommodation company opened an hotel in the heart of Gay district without any rainbow sign... Well, it seems that if gay money is good enough to be accepted, most hotels are very carefull not to "afraid" straight customers.
In the list below, you will find gay-friendly hotels from budget to luxuous, bed & breakfasts, youth hotels or furnished apartments.
The hotels prices in Paris are affordable compared to major capitals in the world. The hotels are rated in France with stars. More stars the hotel have, more luxuous the rooms and services are, and of course more expensives are the prices.
Renting a furnished flat for holidays is a good way to know the French way of living, sleeping in a real parisian ambiance, having a cafe in the bars downstairs or shopping at the typical market nearby. But be aware that the standards can be different than your usual ones. For example, in the old Paris, lots of buildings don't have elevator, even for 5th or 6th floor. Don't forget to check if you don't like to workout!
