Paris’s nightlife tycoon, Pierre Moussié, veered into the hospitality space in 2015 when he took over this 19th-century townhouse nestled in a cobblestoned alley and transformed it into a fancy urban fairytale, carefully sourcing all the artwork, light switches, and upholstery himself. Jewel-toned velvet plays a starring role in each of the plush guest rooms, while the inviting reception space flickers with mint-scented candles courtesy of French-Moroccan designer Ramdane Touhami (who was also tapped to provide the guests’ spa-inspired bath products). Whether you’re surveying the city’s endless canopy of zinc rooftops from your furnished balcony, enjoying a breakfast of freshly-baked Madeleines on the pavement terrace, or sipping an aperitif by the parlor’s fireplace, Hotel Providence allows you to unwind in your very own tourist-free sliver of Paris.
Equal parts English manor and vintage Parisian flat, each of the 18 rooms at this bohemian hotspot is furnished with vibrant House of Hackney wallpaper, parquet floors, crown molding, and dark wood. The hotel’s crown jewel, its attic suite (with views of the Sacré-Cœur basilica) takes the retro feel even further with a desktop record player and selection of vinyl discs.
The hotel’s single restaurant, decked with flower-patterned wallpaper and leather armchairs, is a fierce multi-tasker, churning out breakfast—a generous buffet of fresh fruit, yogurts, cold cuts, cheeses, smoked salmon and Viennese pastries—as well as a farmhouse-style lunch and dinner menu.
Paris’s dynamic arts and theater quarter makes the perfect backdrop for this eccentric showstopper. The hotel is also conveniently located just ten minutes from Canal Saint-Martin’s countless cafés and the closest metro stop, République.
How to Get There
A lovely, romantic hotel. The setting is beautiful, you could spend a whole afternoon sitting by the fire. The breakfast is standard fare and didn’t disappoint. The staff are incredibly polite and informative. The rooms are stunning, each with individual character. We booked a classic but I think we ended up in a superior. To be honest not much of a difference from what I gather, saw the mini room too and it looked just as lovely! Due to circumstance we were upgraded to the Suite. No idea what the rate is but highly recommend it. Such an inviting set up with a huge bathroom, lovely lounge area and even a record player! What a treat. Thank you.
This hotel is the height of cool. The neighborhood is the hippest in Paris. The surrounding food scene is incredible. The staff are attentive and charming. The rooms bring you back to some romanized notion of being in Paris. Great little restaurant and bar. What’s not to love?
The hotel is located in a nice street of the 10th arrondissement in Paris, not far from Notre Dame. From the outside it’s very well kept , there is also a terrasse. The whole hotel has been decorated in dark tones with tasteful decorations and furnishing. The room can’t be faulted, the mattress was comfortable and the room benefits from the latest hi tech gadgets, including a mobile phone that you can take with you in Paris, there is an app to find the best restaurants and places to visit. The room and bathroom was perfectly cleaned. The staff are very polite, professional and friendly. I ordered a cocktail “room 49 I believe, the first on the menu” it was so good!
The only let down was the breakfast, we arrived at 7.00am spot on as we had an early train back home and they were still setting up the breakfast when it should be ready by 7.00am... the breakfast itself could do with a wider selection of food.
Overall a great experience, I definitely recommend this hotel to couples visiting Paris for few days ❤️
From the moment we pulled up to the curb, I was thrilled with our choice of Hotel Providence. The reception and room were filled with the loveliest, most well-thought details - from the stunning interior design (the wallpapers in this place are to die for), to the curated in-room bars, to US-friendly USB charging outlets, towel warmers and a loaner cell phone for use in the city. We highly recommend the deluxe room on the second floor -- king bed and enormous bath -- with its balcony overlooking the bar terrace and street beyond. The staff was charming and extraordinarily helpful throughout. The hotel's bikes available for rent are a great way to see more of the city without the hassle of Velib, but the metro stop one block away can get you nearly anywhere fast as well. I can admittedly be very particular when it comes to hotels as they're such an important part of a trip's ambiance for me. I love a unique and tailored boutique experience and Hotel Providence was an absolute star in my book. You know you've made a good decision when you wish you could spend more time in your room! It would be hard to stay anywhere else next time.
We really love this hotel. We recently spent 6 nights at the Hotel Providence in Paris. They upgraded us to a nicer room free of charge when they learned it was our honeymoon. The staff is extremely good at their jobs. From the wallpaper, to the freshly laundered and folded towels and linens to the bartender everything at this hotel is the top. Will be recommending this place to all my Paris bound friends. The hotel is intimate and sort of feels like you are house guests in a historic city mansion. The hotel cafe is delicious and is beautiful to sit at. The small street it is located on makes the car traffic much lighter and quieter than most of the hotels around town that are on busy streets.
