Independent hotels just outside Paris

Selected small hotels near Paris you'll love staying in 


paris map► This page of the  iHi France independent hotel guide lists only small  hotels close to Paris, with on site or nearby parking for vehicles, and located close to train stations or public transport, for easy access to central Paris.
Suburban Paris is dominated by hotels belonging to large national and international chains, and attractive independent hotels are actually hard to find - particularly ones that meet all the criteria: a quiet location that is not too hard to find, car parking, and close to a station.  
► Consequently, for this area, the iHi guide includes some modern budget hotels and mid-range hotels larger than would be listed in other parts of France, as well as some franchised hotels. 
This directory is very selective, and only lists hotels that get generally good or excellent reviews from people who have stayed in them. Quality - and price - vary from four-star to two-star. iHi welcomes suggestions from travellers and hotel owners.

How much does it cost to train into central Paris?

While it is possible to just buy a simple return ticket from the nearest train or RER station for a journey into Paris and back (if you're just going in for a business appointment or a single visit), it is likely to work out cheaper (and less hassle) to buy a "Paris visite" pass, giving you unlimited use of bus, metro, RER and suburban trains within the area chosen, for one, two, three or five days

Prices have recently gone down (something that is sufficiently unusual for us to mention it) ! In April  2022, Paris Visite travel card prices are (if bought from machines in a station):

Inner zones (1-3): adult day passes.
   1 day - 13.20 €  :  2 days -  21.50 Euros  :    3 days -  29.40 €uros  -  5 days :  42.20 €uros
All zones (1-5)  adult day passes :
   1 day - 27.80 €  :  3 days -  59.20 €uros  -  5 days :  72.40 €uros
Children: approximately half price.

Buy passes at the station when you first go into Paris; don't buy them on line in advance, as you could end up paying more or  a lot more, even from the Paris tourist office. Most of the hotels on this page are in the outer zone.
