Sarah Lavoine took inspiration from Paris’s historic Latin Quarter when redesigning this 19th-century manse. Like that endearingly free-spirited neighborhood, the 37 light-soaked rooms here are offbeat yet timeless, decked out with walnut floors and Carrera marble, an unexpected color scheme of pale greens and sages, pillows splattered with geometric patterns (Lavoine is especially known for her graphic edge), and plenty of brass trimmings—though it’s the Saint Roch suite and its complimentary minibar, roomy dressing area, and terrace overlooking Place Vendôme’s bronze Napoleon statue that is the unmistakable scene-stealer. Lavoine also brought in plenty of Moroccan flair, such as zellige bathroom tiles, fluffy Berber carpets, and a petite hammam accessible via a waterfall by the black-lava rock pool—all nods to the city’s deep-rooted North African community. Though a 1st arrondissement location means most of the city’s famed sites are within walking distance, you might be just as inclined to stay in and savor this unique slice of Paris.
In the Area
Situated on a quiet and historic street (look out for the nearly 400-year-old antique shop wedged into the St. Roch church) between the Place de l’Opera and the Place Vendôme, a stay at this boutique hotel is sure to spur some serious postcode envy. In addition to the Rodin and Maillol sculptures of Jardin des Tuileries, which is down the street, you’re also close to the upmarket boutiques of rue St-Honore, including Colette, a lifestyle store that’s long been considered a Fashion Week favorite. Fortunately, getting to other pockets of the city is just as easy—you’re just a one-minute walk from the Pyramides and Tuileries metro stops.
How to Get There
This hotel is conveniently located near shopping and various tourist sights in Paris. Room was very comfortable and staff welcoming and friendly. Would gladly return to this hotel on our next trip back to Paris.
This is the place to go to if you want to avoid the usual large hotels (eg Crillon, Plaza Athenee, George V) but have 5-star comfort. A boutique in the 1st arrondissement, it is close by everything though tucked away. It is not much of a secret with those in the know. The fashion and design crowd descend on it. Beautiful interiors by the very talented Sarah Lavoine and an accomplished restaurant. Only downside is the rooms are small.
We absolutely loved this hotel. The location was phenomenal and the hotel was extremely well kept. Only issue we had was the elevator didn't work when we went to check out so we carried our bags down multiple flights but they did offer to come get our bags for us. The spa (pool / hot tub) was unreal. The pool has jets all around it so you can get an aqua massage. This was probably one of the best hotels we have stayed at in a long time. AWESOME bar and restaurant as well but would highly recommend booking dining reservations well in advance of when you arrive as they get booked.
Lack of value is the sole reason this is a 3 star and why I would not recommend this property. No complaints on the property and room, both are impressive and the boutique atmosphere is welcoming for a property so central in Paris. The hammam and pool are nice extras during your time exploring or working in Paris. The service is lacking for a place charging a premium - no special welcomes/messages for your celebration or events and the inability to provide items that other Bonvoy properties carry. At its price point, I expected (and have experienced) more. The same applies to the rooms - beautiful, comfortable beds & bedding, well furnished, and clean but small (at least the room I had) for the price paid. Nothing wrong with the property or service but for the amount you pay, you should receive and expect more.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights while in Paris. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff were unmatched. We ended up getting upgraded into a fantastic suite with a full bath and rainfall showerhead. Our stay was amazing much in part due to the personnel who work at this cute boutique hotel. Frederick and Samir, sorry if spelled wrong, were two of many outstanding employees. Thanks to all who made our stay so pleasant.
