Paris is divided into arrondissement. There are a total of twenty, classified by 1 to 20. The most central areas are those that go from the first (Louvre) up to the eighth.

To the XVII arrondissement, in the area Parc Monceau e Palais de Congress there are excellent rather cheap facilities. The area is rather quiet and is well served by the metro. Le Trente is really an excellent solution; at about 70 € a night you will find friendliness, cleanliness and quite comfortable rooms. The Hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Brochant metro station. From this link, the best offers for the hotel.

This is a very diverse district, different from area to area, with shops, beautiful residences and one of the most poetic squares in the city: Place des Vosges. It is considered a rather trendy area thanks to the many boutiques of young emerging designers and trendy clubs. It is much appreciated by families, as well as by young people, for parks, sidewalks and restaurants. Le Marais has become a reference point for gay couples. For us at Kanoa it is really a good choice.

Prices are quite varied. There are also interesting studios and apartments, less than € 100 per night, with a kitchenette. Great for saving money. Through this link, find over 300 facilities in the Marais district.

Montmartre it is the art district par excellence.

Here, there is the imposing white mass of the Sacré Coeur: something indescribable, exciting. At the beginning of the 900, many impressionists lived right here.
