The Paris HOTE QUALITE Charter

The HOTES QUALITE PARIS name guarantees visitors quality accommodation in the main residence of a Parisian home-owner, who serves a French-style breakfast and provides a door key. It signifies a Parisian welcome, in a Parisian home, with a home-made breakfast served at the family table.

When you see the new key symbol logo against the entry for our B&B hosts in the Paris region, you know that they meet the criteria indicated below. This new charter is a recent initiative launched on the 19 April 2005 by the Parisian authorities to promote quality B&Bs in Paris. Bed & Breakfast France is one of the few recognised organisations to work with this charter.
