4.8
#17 of 54 in Neighborhoods in Paris
Take in quintessential Paris at 8th Arrondissement, home to the Champs-Elysees and Arc de Triomphe, and packed with high-end shops, restaurants, and hotels. Stroll the tree-lined Champs-Elysees, one of the country's best-known roads, and you'll pass a riotous array of cafes and souvenir shops and eventually arrive at the massive traffic circle around the Arc de Triomphe. Experience the swirling masses of cars and people here, a side effect of the district's position in Paris' business nexus, and view the 50 m (164 ft) arch. Also part of the neighborhood, Place de la Concorde represents the city's biggest square replete with embassies, fountains, and other ornate buildings. Don't miss the "golden triangle," one of Paris' most popular shopping areas full of boutique stores.

    In the 8th district hotel often stay. You can arrive to hotel from airport is heading into the 8th district hotel by taxi from Charles de Gaulle airport, from high speed road at Porte Maillot exit 8e arrondissement was close, so relatively quickly. Champs Elysees and is one of the colorful streets, the Avenue Montaigne and folksy atmosphere in Paris do not place.

    This district would have to be the best for sights, entertainment, shopping and dining. Always busy and fast paced. Lots of choices for hotels within walking distance to major attractions like Moulin ...  more »

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
