If you’ve planned to make a stop for a few days to visit Paris Zoo and the surrounding area, we recommend the following hotels.
The Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée
The Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée is a boutique hotel by the Motel One hotel chain, in the heart of the Bois de Vincennes. The hotel has an exotic interior, with an urban jungle ambiance, evoking the zoo animals nearby. There you’ll find Butterfly and Flatterby lamps designed by the designer Ingo Maurer, dragonfly lamps by Damien Langlois-Meurinne, 3D collages by Madame Moustache, as well as hanging porcelain lights by Tobias Grau.
The hotel offers a designer breakfast buffet space and a bar with a French lounge atmosphere. The food is carefully chosen, with many products being organic or fairtrade.
The hotel is ideally located just 300 metres from Vincennes Zoo, i.e. 4 minutes on foot and 1 minute by car via Avenue Dausmenil. Its location will allow you to easily make your way around the whole capital. Furthermore, the hotel has an underground car park to safely park your car.
For one night in a single room, you’ll pay from €79 upwards. For one night in a double Queen/King Size room, prices start at €94 (€115 with buffet breakfast included).

The hotel is located just beside the Bois de Vincennes, and 750 metres away from the Paris Zoological Gardens, i.e. 3 minutes by car and 9 minutes walking. The 46 bus directly links the zoo and the hotel in 5 minutes.
