Louvre Museum Hotels

Housed in a spectacularly ornate former royal palace, the Louvre is the world’s most-visited museum, and an absolute must for any Paris visitor. Even its main entrance – a gleaming, futuristic glass pyramid – is a magnificent work of art. Of course, the big draw for many is the chance to come face to face with Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, but it’s just one of around 35,000 artworks, spread across 300 elegant rooms. The Louvre can be found smack bang in the middle of Paris, in the chic, thrillingly diverse 1st arrondissement.

Things to see

You can’t possibly hope to see everything the Louvre has to offer in a single visit, so don’t stress yourself out by trying to cram too much in. Guided tours in English take place throughout the day – these are a great way to get your bearings, and to make sure you see some of the collection’s undisputed highlights.

If you’re in the mood for great art in a more intimate setting, L’Orangerie is a museum that stresses quality over quantity. Its astonishing collection contains multiple masterpieces by Renoir, Matisse and Picasso. Once you’ve had your museum fix, take a stroll through the lush Jardin des Tuileries. The gardens are an idyllic place to while away a sunny afternoon, with open-air cafés and ice cream stalls galore. Place Vendôme is another prime people-watching spot. It offers a compelling glimpse of the Parisian high life, with its exclusive designer boutiques and luxury hotels.

Where to stay

The 1st arrondissement is the beating heart of modern Paris, and the ideal spot for an action-packed city break. The neighbourhood is a food-lover’s fantasy, with everything from bakeries selling fresh-from-the-oven croissants, to Michelin star restaurants serving innovative haute cuisine in effortlessly hip, minimalist surroundings. If you’re in the mood for a drink, you’re equally spoilt for choice – take your pick from laid-back pubs, cosy wine bars, or seductively opulent cocktail lounges. Naturally, you can also shop til you drop without ever leaving the district.

How to get to Louvre Museum

Charles de Gaulle airport is Paris’s main international transport hub, served by direct flights from major cities all over the world, such as London, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore, and Mexico City. From here, you can easily reach the Louvre by train – take the RER B train to Châtelet-les-Halles, then line 14 to Pyramides station. Alternatively, a taxi will take around 45 minutes. If your plane lands at Orly Airport instead, the journey is just as simple. Take the RER C train to Saint-Michel-Notre-Dame, then the no. 27 bus all the way to the Louvre.
