PostHeaderIcon France Nightlife

nightlife While in France you can see a cultured and diverse nightlife. In its cities you will find world class opera, trendy nightclubs, traditional French bars and lovely cabarets. If you want a great night in France, make sure your experience contains as many of these different types of entertainment as possible. The best city in France as far as the nightlife is concerned, is Paris. Go to Paris if you want a great nightlife experience.

If you want to visit some bars, you should go to the residential areas if you’re looking for something authentic. The French will be there and the prices will be better. They will provide you with the best experience. In the tourist areas you will see more foreigners and the prices will be higher.

If you like clubbing, Le Duplex is probably the best place to visit in Paris. There are three floors in the club, each with their own atmosphere and music (new wave, techno and hip hop). Since there are long lines, you should get to the club early.

If your ideal night out includes theatre, you should definitely visit the Comedie Francaise. It goes back over 300 years, since the times of Louis XVI.

If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on a night out, go with a popular choice, like the wine bars, or simply stay at a small café. Once they close (at midnight usually), you can go to a music venue or a club. There are a lot of jazz clubs that you can visit, some for poor students and some for high rollers. The best clubs will have international DJ’s invited and will usually close at 5 AM.

Other cities in France will close earlier than those in Paris, except for those located at the Cote d’Azur.

As a result, France hotels offer plenty of quality for tourists and many amenities, depending on what you can afford to spend on your room. Since each country has a different view on what a hotel should offer, I thought I would give you a basic description of France hotels, from 1 to 5 stars, and what they offer.

France Hotels With 1 Star

If you just want a place to sleep and you don’t want to spend a lot of money, a 1 star hotel might be just what you’re looking for. In some cases you will be able to find hotels that have their own bathroom in the room, instead of a common one.

France Hotels With 2 Stars

The amenities offered by two star hotels vary, so do some research before choosing where you will stay. Some will habe meeting rooms and business facilities, while others will give you free parking. Some will have their own restaurant and offer breakfast, while others will lack this option.

France Hotels With 3 Stars

Three star hotels are the most popular choice in France, and it shows. There are usually more 3 star hotels in French cities than any other category of hotel. Their prices will depend both on the facilities that they offer and on their location. Internet access is freely available only in the hotel lobby in a lot of cases, but there are some hotels out there that will provide it for free in your own room.

France Hotels With 4 Stars

In most cases, 4 star hotels in France will have the possibility of room service, in case you want a hot meal or a snack brought to you. You will also find fitness rooms, so if you’re used to training, you will be able to do it while in vacation. Almost all four star hotels in France will have restaurants inside the hotels, with quality food and great ambiance.
