You will find a huge range of hotel choices when you're planning a visit to France. The cost of accommodations varies according to region and type. While hotel rooms are more expensive in Paris, there are also many fabulous château and luxury hotels throughout France which are equally as costly. But there are also many comfortable, family-run, budget hotels as well as an increasing number of chains catering to those who just want a bed for the night.
According to the website of the French Government Tourist Office, www.us.franceguide.com, prices for a budget and economy hotel in Paris per night average 52 euros and in the rest of France 28 euros. These are the most basic accommodations. What is classified as a 'Very Comfortable' Hotel averages 151 euros per night in Paris and 78 euros outside, while the most expensive Deluxe category hotels average 405 euros in Paris and 300 euros in the rest of France. However, remember that these are average prices, so the ranges within each category are quite wide.
Hotels in France display prices at the hotel entrance and usually in the bedrooms, and include tax and service. If you need an extra bed in the room, there is usually a surcharge.
