C.O.Q Hotel Paris

15 Rue Edouard Manet, Paris, 75013, France

This relatively new hotel has plenty of great features, including a retro-chic design, ultra-friendly staff, welcoming common areas and a quiet setting away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Opened in 2016, the C.O.Q—which stands for Community of Quality—stands up to its ideals, so it's easy to see why it’s so popular among savvy travelers.

room

This mid-size hotel’s 50 well-maintained rooms and suites are models of Parisian chic. Done up in moody grays or pale beige, each room has its own character and features cool vintage furniture, contemporary lighting, original artworks, and super-comfy beds.

bathroom

All in pristine white, with top-of-the-line fixtures, the baths make up in cleanliness and functionality for what they lack in size. Products are from the popular Rituals line.

lobby

The chic lounge’s cozy nooks encourage lingering and incorporate a garden conservatory (with chickens), café, a mini-concept shop, featuring Made in France items.

Board games, a pull-down screen for movie nights, and a cozy evening bar are perfect for stay-in fun.

dining

A high-quality French breakfast, including gourmet confitures and fresh local breads and croissants, is served in the bright ground-floor café.

Get there early to assure the best tables and be prepared to meet your neighbors!

drinking

The bar is open! Choose from a good selection of wines, beers, Champagne, and cocktails to sip by the fire, in the outdoor terrace (near the chickens, this is the coq!) or in the privacy of your room.

rue mouffetard

Immortalized in Hemingway's A Moveable Feast, cobbled rue Mouffetard is one of Paris's greatest, and oldest, market streets, brimming with cheese shops, butchers, boulangeries, pâtisserie's, you name it. Though slightly touristic, its authenticity remains undisputed, as you'll see by the Parisians who flock here. A few gems to discover: Fromagerie Patrick Veron specializes in raw milk goat cheeses; Mococha is the place for artisanal chocolates; head to La Maison des Trois Thés (rue Saint-Médiard) for all things tea.

LOCATION

Getting Around

A five-minute walk from Place d’Italie, where three major metro lines converge and several bus lines.

Though the 13e arrondissement, near the Place d'Italie is an out-of-the-way neighborhood it is not a boring one. There's plenty to see within walking distance that the average tourist might miss, like the lovely Buttes aux Cailles neighborhood, Paris's Chinatown, the Gobelins royal tapestry manufacture, and some lively hotspots near the Seine. Walkers will find it an easy, and scenic walk to both the Jardin des Plantes and all its amazing riches, including the Muséum Nationale d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris's oldest zoo, the gorgeous greenhouses, and much more. You're also just a walk away from the colorful rue Mouffetard, one of Paris's oldest market streets.

Restaurants

For a good budget meal, follow the locals to Chez Mamane, where you'll sit at long tables and dine on authentic dishes from the Maghreb, starring copious couscous plates (meat or vegetarian), tender lamb, spicey merguez, accompanied by good wine and beer at absurdly low prices. In the heart of the Buttes aux Cailles, Les Cailloux trattoria, another neighborhod stalwart, serves delicious classic Italian fare and excellent wines at gentle prices (both about a 10 minutes on foot).

Bars

There are plenty of standard bars and cafés and the neighborhood to grab a drink anytime during the day or evening. If you're looking for a neighborhood hangout Au Goût du Monde serves a menu of colorful cocktails served with French comfort food (10 minute walk). If you're willing to walk a little ways to the Seine, head over to Cité de la Mode et du Design, right on the river, where you'll have the choice of fashionable nightspots Café Oz and Nuba, for dancing, cocktails, and general revelry with some great views over the water (10-15-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

Upbeat, fun and super friendly, we love the C.O.Q’s chic, imaginative design and community spirit. The neighborhood is full of great places to discover: sophisticated museums, lush gardens, typically Parisian markets and history galore.
