Hôtel Adèle & Jules

2 Cité Rougemont, Paris, 75009, France

Jennifer Ladonne

Twin 30-room buildings make up this beautifully designed boutique hotel that opened in summer 2016 in a quiet Paris passageway. For now, Adèle et Jules is an under-the-radar discovery, mostly frequented by the fashion set, but its surplus of style and location in a quiet, under-touristed but fabulous neighborhood, full of restaurants and cocktails bars, means the secret will soon be out.


A handsome palette of retro color schemes—grass green, turquoise, flame red—exotic ikat accents in curtains and throw pillows, chic lighting, and attractive art prints blend stylishly in cozy rooms, some with terraces large enough for a café table. All rooms have Bluetooth speakers, but only Club and Junior Suites come with in-room Nespresso machines. There are no minibars.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The hotel does encourage business groups, which in a hotel of this size can be noticeable.


Spotless-white metro-tiled baths have either a spacious walk-in shower or a bath with hand shower, up-to-the-minute fixtures, and all the amenities. Bath products are by the luxury French perfumer Fragonard.


Beautiful deep Crayola hues, attractive artworks, deep, plush seating, and a fireplace recreate the perfect chic-Paris-apartment atmosphere, just begging for you to cozy in with a glass of wine from the honor bar.


A very good buffet breakfast—fruit, pastry, charcuterie and cheese, etc.—is served in your room or the downstairs lounge. There is no in-hotel restaurant, but the hotel serves a complimentary tea time between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., and the hotel will order in meals at your request.


The lounge is a great place to relax and take advantage of a well-stocked honor bar.


Getting Around

Just minutes from the Grands Boulevards metro station, where you can get two major lines, or connect with pretty much any metro line you need. Buses are easy to catch on Blvd Poissonière.


Nearby Rue Richer is home to two excellent bistronomic restaurants, Richer, L’Office. Down rue Notre Dame des Victoires is the marvelous Saturne. A few blocks away, tiny rue de Nil is home to the Frenchie empire, a favorite among foodies, with Frenchie Restaurant, Wine Bar, and Frenchie to Go, open for a yummy breakfast, lunch, and all-day snacking. Coffee lovers do not miss l’Arbre à Café, one of the city’s top roasters, where you can stock up on coffee accouterments, fresh beans, and sip a wicked espresso.


Lockwood has baristas serving coffee by day and hosts hipster cocktails at night. Mabel has great cocktails and 100 types of rum--so many rums!


For food, wine, cocktails bars (the nearby 2nd arrondissement is lousy with them), and wonderful restaurants, not to mention some great Paris sites and authentic neighborhoods, this is an exemplary neighborhood. Though slightly off-the-beaten-path, it’s also quiet and far from the tourist hoards.
