Hotels in Paris with Incredible Rooftop Pools

Sharing is caring!

Paris is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world welcoming 33 million visitors in 2017.  There are a wide variety of accommodations to choose from, including close to 2000 hotels in the Greater Paris area. However, hotels with swimming pools are scarce, mostly because of space constraints. With roughly 50 hotels pools in Paris, tourists who are partial to swimming should book far in advance. Hotels in Paris with rooftop pools are even harder to find due to height limitations on the buildings. Luckily, there are 3 hotels in Paris with this incredible amenity. Two of the hotels with rooftop pools are within the Boulevard Périphérique, and the other is 10 minutes south-west of Paris.
