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.

  • Located near the Natural History Museum, this mosque is beautiful. I came here on June 10, went inside around 1 hour before Maghrib. The prayer room is quite big, luminous, and quite. The restaurant is also very nice. I had couscous with lamb and chicken and it was delicious.
  • Amazing place. Great service, great food, and amazing atmosphere weather you eat inside or outside. Whether you come for just yea and sweets or a full meal you won't be dissapointed.
  • It is a mosque but unfortunately terrible washrooms. Turkish style washrooms are completely uncomfortable. For none Muslims who would like to visit, it completely disorganized in terms of receiving visitors. In front of the mosque, old ladies begging for money is very annoying.
  • Largest mosque in Europe, amazing decorations, it's easy to be reachable with metro and public transport. Paris is so lucky to have such a mosque.
  • Visiting inside of the mosque is not allowed for women during Ramadan which is quite unfair. When you ask the reason, they will say "there is not enough space for praying". However, it is a deep sorrow to hear men snoring at this sacred place where you are not allowed even for visiting. The only advantage is being there is to visit the tea house which is next to the mosque. You can enjoy the mint tea which is delicious.
