Reims, the unofficial capital of the Champagne region, invites you to experience its historical charm and luxury accommodations. This charming city is filled with cobblestone streets and Roman architecture, including the famed Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral.
But where will you sleep? Unsurprisingly, some luxurious hotels in Reims, France, are the perfect companion to champagne tastings. But there are also some great mid-range options, which I’ve included in this article.
I have visited Reims twice, so I feel well versed in providing you with an overview of the best places to stay in the capital of Champagne!

- Reims Hotels in Conclusion
Location is key when it comes to choosing the perfect hotel. I’ll divide this article into hotels in the heart of Reims city center and those a little farther afield. I would recommend staying in downtown Reims as it has a very walkable town center. The one exception to this is the hotels Les Crayeres which is not downtown but is a short walk from some of the most well known champagne houses in Reims.
NB: Some of the best known champagne houses in Reims (Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Ruinart etc) are located a good 20 minute walk from these downtown Reims hotels. There are only a couple of champagne houses in downtown Reims (Casanove, Pol Couronne). The most famous names are on the edge of downtown Reims and in nearby Epernay.
