Number of hotel rooms in France 2019, by region

In 2019, the French region with the highest number of hotel rooms was the Ile-de-France region. This region, which includes the city of Paris as well as the suburbs around the capital such as Versailles or Marne-la-Vallée (home of Disneyland Paris), had exactly 156,880 hotel rooms out of a total of 642,779 across the country. Paris is one of the leading city destinations in Europe, with more than 16.84 million tourist arrivals in 2018.

The city of lights, the mountains, the coastal regions, and the rest

Except for the Auvergne-Rhône Alpes region, which is placed second in this ranking, the other regions with a number of hotel rooms exceeding 50,000 are all located on the seaside. Thus, in 2019, there were more than 73, 000 hotels rooms in Provence-Alpes Côte d’Azur near the Mediterranean Sea, compared to 55,121 for the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks to their attractive landscapes (the sea and the mountains) these regions welcome the majority of tourists going to France.

The hotel, one type of accommodation among others

France is the country with the highest number of chain hotels in Europe. However, even though hotels remain a popular housing type on vacation, other types of accommodation are chosen by tourists. As of January 2018, classified and furnished tourist accommodations represented most of travel accommodation establishments in France and guesthouses were also a very common form of lodging in the country. In 2017, the online housing website Airbnb, was one of the most visited travel websites in France. France was the second country with the most Airbnb listings in 2017.
