Why We Like It

This little gem of an oh-so-Parisian hotel is perfectly located in the chic heart of the city, within minutes of some of Paris's very best museums, both small and large, and shopping galore.

You'll know interiors wizard Jacques Garcia has struck again by the dusky lighting, luxe fabrics, and romantic atmosphere of this "oriental neogothis" décor–a magnetic blend of chic and serenity cultivated at this petit Marais hotel.

Set on a tiny, block-long street in the Marais, the hotel is in the thick of the action but enough off the beaten path that you're away from the worst of the noise and crowds. A branch of the famous Mariage Fréres tea shop and café.

Rooms are barely bigger than the beds, and every inch has been upholstered, tasseled, and draped in a cacophony of stripes, florals, and medieval motifs but still offering all the modern creature comforts. Try to get a room with a balcony, those overlooking the courtyard are quiet and lovely.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Low mood lighting n the room and bathroom may add to the romance, but can be maddening when looking for your socks.

Opulent panelled baths, with luxe marble tubs and black accents, are larger than you'd expect in these cozy rooms, but feature all the amenities. Bath products, designed by Costes, have a scrumptious scent.

The opulent lobby is small but a lovely place to lounge with a drink, and the tiny courtyard garden offers three tables, leafy plants, and a swath of stars above.

The continental breakfast includes standard offerings of pastry, yogurt, fruit, juices, etc.—is expensive for what it is. But the downstairs breakfast room is gorgeous to behold

There's no lack of dining in the area, and tons of fun cafés on nearby Rue Vieille du Temple for breakfast or a glass of wine.

Getting Around

4-minute walk to Hôtel de Ville metro station, serving line no. 1, Paris's fast, central line. 10-minute walk to Châtelet, a major hub, with five metro lines and two RERs, including RER B, direct to both airports.


There are a LOT of restaurants in this teeming neighborhood, but also a lot of tourist traps and second-rate dining. While you usually can't go so wrong at a café, you may have a hard time picking out the wheat from the chaff. For budget dining you can stay with the Breton theme and head to the beloved Breizh Café—a few minutes away by foot, across the Rue Vieille du Temple from the Musée Picasso—for a sweet or savoy crêpe and a crisp artisanal cider. Or grab a superb falafel sandwich at L'As du Fallafel, also minutes away, to savor in one of the Marais's many charming little parks. For a more upscale meal, especially in summer, we like Grand Coeur for it's soaring decor and lovely terrace, and Restaurant H, a chic little bistro and one of the neighborhood's best kept secrets.


For a glass of wine and great people watching, you can't go wrong at any of the cafés lining the lively Rue Vieille du Temple (we like Les Philosophes and Le Fer au Cheval, both two minutes away) as well as La Belle Hortense, one of our absolute favs. There are lots of gay bars along the Rue des Archives and the superchic haut Marais—the upper part of the 3rd arrondissement—is home to two superb craft cocktail lounges, Mary Celeste and Candelaria.
