Pet-Friendly Hotels in Paris

by Courtney Dickson
2 months ago

Living in Berlin, Germany for two and a half years allowed my husband and I to travel quite a lot through Europe. During that time, we were lucky to take our beloved French Bulldog with us. In fact, we would often plan our trips around where we could bring our fur baby. Needless to say, our dog became a very well-travelled pup.

Paris was one of my favorite cities to visit and we discovered a few pet-friendly hotels that made traveling pretty stress free when it came to accommodation.

25HOURS HOTEL TERMINUS NORD

One hotel we discovered was the 25hours Hotel Terminus Nord. 25hours is a growing chain of properties across Europe that are modern, artistic and affordable for the average explorer. We ended up staying in several of their properties (Germany, France and Switzerland) as we found their pet policy and amenities superior to many standard hotels. In particular, it's only an additional 20-euro fee for the duration of the stay, and the hotel offered food and water bowls, as well as pet beds.

To me this was the real definition of being “pet-friendly” vs “pets allowed”. I can attest to the fact that in one hotel we stayed at in Paris, they charged us 50 euro a night for our dog, and when we asked for some bowls so we could feed our pup, they brought a paper plate to our room. After a week at that hotel we begrudgingly handed over the extra 350 euros for our paper plate and swore never to return!

25hours Paris De Nord is located directly across the road from Paris Gare de Nord train station. This was really handy when traveling with our dog as on this particular visit we arrived by train from Amsterdam. An easy walk from the terminal had us checking in within a few minutes of arrival into Paris.

NOTE: not all taxi’s or Ubers will permit a dog in their vehicle so arriving by train ensured we wouldn’t get stuck trying to secure transport from the airport to the hotel.

Because we were directly across the road from a major train station, we had our initial concerns about noise, but we were pleasantly surprised the rooms were pretty soundproof. Our room was directly on the street side of the corner too, and we’re happy to report there were no issues sleeping.

We stayed in one of the “Extra Large Rooms” as our experience traveling in Europe taught us that hotel rooms were often smaller than expected. The room was colourful and fairly spacious. In fact, the whole hotel is extremely vivid and somewhat eclectic. They describe themselves as “a playful hodgepodge of vibrant, colourful wall murals in street art style. The rooms are relaxing retreats with colour schemes inspired by Africa and Asia”. I found the bold colours somewhat refreshing after a long day of travel.

25hours offer great additions to travelers like free bike rental so you can explore the city with pedal power. They offer tours and provide maps. We chose to explore on foot so we could stretch the legs and let our dog come along for a nice long walk.

Apart from being across the road from the Gare de Nord, 25hours was in bustling city location. If you’re at all like me, you like to wander the streets of the city you're visiting, soaking in the sights, smells and noises surrounding you. There were plenty of restaurants, bars and shops to wander around and if you wanted to visit some of the major attractions you could still reach them on foot. For example, the Louvre was an easy 35-40 mins away.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 25hours Paris Terminus Nord and can easily recommend it as a truly pet-friendly hotel conveniently located amongst the bustling 10th District.

THE NOLINSKI

If you’re looking for something more luxurious and sophisticated, you can’t go past the 5-star Nolinski. The Nolinski is a truly elegant Parisian hotel located between the Garnier opera house and the famous Rue Saint Honoré. Some might call the area “touristy” but for us it was convenient.

The Nolinski is a 45-room boutique hotel with all the amenities of any 5 star rival. Valet, limousine service, day spa along with subterranean pool, a personal trainer and my favorite of course is that your dog is considered a welcome guest. The hotel provided us with a very stylish raised dog bed and bowl.

We stayed in a Deluxe Room again for the extra space when traveling with a dog, and to be honest, I’m always a sucker for a twin vanity in a hotel bathroom. The rooms are elegant and have high end finishes and textiles. I personally loved the black out curtains for a peaceful sleep in the city of lights. Our room had a small balcony our Frenchie would poke his head out and watch the hustle and bustle below.

Location wise with a pet it can’t be beat — minutes from the Opera House, Louvre, Sein and Jardin des Tuileries. Something to note is that certain areas of the Jardin des Tuileries dogs are allowed, so this was a great location for us to take our pup out during the day. It gives you a welcome relief from the constant traffic and noise that a large city like Paris comes with.

Both hotels offer great touch points but they have one thing in common, they love and welcome pets and provide amenities for your fur friend making traveling with your pup to a major metropolitan city just that bit easier and of course lighter when it comes to luggage.

Enjoy!
