Paris, like most European cities, can be expensive, particularly when it comes to hotel accommodations. Paris is, after all, the most visited city in the world with over 40 million visitors annually. This drives up accommodation prices. Fortunately for travellers who are prepared to do a bit of research, there are many options to get a great accommodation in a spectacular location at a great price. Priceline probably offers the lowest prices for hotels in Paris.
Priceline is a great alternative for travelers booking a hotel in Paris where the exact hotel does not matter.

Note that reservations on Priceline are non-refundable and cannot be changed or cancelled.
