Unique Boutique Hotels in Paris

Unique and boutique, these Parisian hotels are just as much here to entertain you as they are to bathe you in luxury. From Michelin-starred kitchens featuring rooftop bars and pools to rooms with a view and quirky furniture, boutique hotels have that extra spice that dares you never to leave. I mean, if you can see the Eiffel Tower from your room, why wouldn’t you?

Hotel Monte Cristo

No need to be a book­worm to stay in this hotel — a sort of fan­ta­sy embodiment/living mon­u­ment of one of the great­est French­men, Alexan­der Dumas; but you must have an eye for the details to ful­ly appre­ci­ate the beau­ti­ful all-out XIXth-cen­tu­ry decor, pay­ing homage to the writer’s voy­ages of its room and suits. This place will def­i­nite­ly ~make you dream~ — and their well­ness facil­i­ties will be god­dess-send after a day full of explor­ing.

Hôtel Léopold

The Hotel Leopold, sit­ting pret­ty in the heart of the Mont­par­nasse dis­trict, can first and fore­most boast about their great loca­tion — but they offer so much more than that. Their col­or­ful, yet classy 30’s Art Deco style, com­bined with metic­u­lous details will almost make you aban­don the plans to vis­it any muse­ums and stay in your room admir­ing the bed frame flow­ers instead.

Le Citizen

The expe­ri­ence is all in the title with this upbeat neigh­bor­hood hotel. From their brunch to their street views of Canal Saint-Mar­tin (far from the touristy part of town), you will feel like a (very cool) cit­i­zen of Paris at this spot, locat­ed in the most hip­ster­gas­mic part of Paris, in spite of oth­er, cheap­er, neigh­bor­hoods striv­ing to be the ‘Brook­lyn of Paris,’– the Canal remains unbeat­able as a dy-to-night hang­out for ~hot~ twen­tysome­things in mom jeans and the 40 year olds that can actu­al­ly afford the prop­er­ty prices.  Rent out their restau­rant for an event or host a theme night just because. It is 2022 after all, and you are #not­liketheother­tourists.

Grand Amour Hotel Paris

Grand Amour has a, let’s say,  « youth­ful » and trendy ambiance — they sell their own knick­ers and favor loca­tions in slight­ly grungy streets to make you feel like a fuck­ing edgelord whilst still remain­ing suf­fi­cient­ly ~posh~ and not get­ting robbed or any­thing. They will show­er you with their spe­cial trend­slut form of luxe, yet fun, self-aware­ness with  many open, green patios (patii? I dun­no, I dropped out of Uni) and rooms where upscale meets cozy. It com­bines funky, art­sy, and lux­u­ri­ous for an alto­geth­er charm­ing stay. Order from their restau­rant 24/7 or a pair of undies from their online store. 😉

Jules + Jim

Don’t let their obscure site fool you: with art exhi­bi­tions, guid­ed excur­sions, and be-dj’ed bar nights, Jules + Jim is a hotel that aims to please those with a youth­ful but dis­cern­ing spir­it. Take a ride in the hotel’s Cit­roën DS (made in 1961 like your dad lol) and re-expe­ri­ence Paris through vin­tage glass­es. (Although you don’t need to stay there to vibe out in vin­tage autos…) Not in the mood for a car ride? Take their pri­vate boat cruise along the Seine riv­er (again, lots of oth­er ways to do this, in fact ask us, we are ~experts~ in the Paris itin­er­ary pot­tery wheel and have the low­down on which tour com­pa­nies are ~basic~)…but regard­less of our snark and cyn­i­cism, do make a stop next door at Café Ineko, vot­ed best crois­sant in 2015. It’s like, real­ly, real­ly, hard to find art or gal­leries or muse­ums here in Paris, so come up for oxy­gen here with their pop-art inspired rooms and mod­ern spaces with an exhi­bi­tion area of their fea­tured art.

If that still doesn’t con­vince you, the Moli­tor hotel is home to the largest hotel spa in Europe and offers beau­ti­ful rooms with ter­race views attached. Plus, just look! Cool as hell, non?

Sinner

Atten­tion: this hotel is only for the dar­ing and promis­cu­ous! What does that even mean in 2022? One shud­ders to actu­al­ly imag­ine.  The Sin­ner hotel sug­gests a lux­u­ri­ous and sen­su­al cul­ture with a mys­te­ri­ous crypt (now that’s get­ting Freaky) and a roman bath-inspired spa to relax from your wild nights (or give you an oppor­tu­ni­ty to cre­ate them). The Sin­ner hotel remains implic­it yet mys­te­ri­ous with its inten­tions while simul­ta­ne­ous­ly promis­ing nights of inhi­bi­tion. Let your freak flag fly, or just enjoy a new angle on going to bed after see­ing Ver­sailles and the Eif­fel Tow­er (please, not in one day)

The Hotel du Petit Moulin offers some­thing unique to its guests as every suite was designed by French design­er Chris­t­ian LaCroix and the build­ing itself was Paris’ first bak­ery.
