With 20 arrondissements to explore, and each offering a different character, visitors to Paris can be forgiven for not knowing where to start. Why not kick things off in the second arrondissement? With the Opéra Garnier and the National Library, this neighborhood may just be first when it comes to culture. It’s also home to Hôtel Square Louvois, a regal four-star boutique hotel. Staying here, you’ll be right next to the historical shopping arcades, as well as the city’s centers of banking and business.
The Bourse (stock exchange) may be right outside, but the real riches are within the hotel, where breathtaking Art Deco details complement classic and elegant French design. There’s plenty of that Parisian cool, too, with velvet curtains, chandeliers and, of course, an essential coffee machine in every room. A swimming pool with a hydro-massage bench and an herbal tearoom are all hidden in the stone vaults below, meaning there’s even more to this luxe hotel than meets the eye.
The tasteful design in the guest rooms here really steals the show, with velvet curtains adding a luxurious touch to the chic Parisian décor. You’ll find oak flooring, Parisian tapestries and copper finishes, all set against a backdrop of soothing blues and natural wooden tones. The Classic rooms range from 160-200 square feet, while the Superior rooms offer a bit more space, measuring in at 190-225 square feet.
Slide into one of the colorful banquettes in the dining room, and savor the delicious breakfast and afternoon tea on offer here. Wake up to an assortment of pastries and breads, or enjoy a French-style afternoon snack, with cakes, pastries and gourmet teas.
Thanks to the privacy of its stone vaults, the wellness area at Hôtel Square Louvois has an incredibly serene, traquil vibe. Underneath the exposed stonework, you’ll find a swimming pool with a hydro-massage bench, a sauna, an herbal tearoom for a post-treatment pick-me-up and a menu of therapies and massages that can even be enjoyed in your guestroom. Cardio machines are also available for when you want to up the tempo.
Taking its name from its location at the heart of the second arrondissement, Hôtel Square Louvois is well placed for visiting the major cultural sites of Paris. You can start with the nearby Opéra Garnier and Place de la Madeleine, and then continue on through the Haussmannian streets to see what other treasures the City of Light has in store for you.

We came to the hotel for a family vacation with our three kids.
From the start we knew we have picked the right place for us.
The crew was very welcoming and helpful.
We took have family room which was divided into two separate rooms, one for us and one for the children.
The rooms were spacious, clean and beautifully designed.
