A chic hotel in Bercy, in Paris' 12th arrondissement, with daily breakfast and a welcome drink on arrival
There’s no shortage of chic to be found at this rather stylish-but-intimate boutique property, located just minutes from the iconic neoclassical facade and 67-metre-high clock tower of Paris’ famous railway station, the Gare de Lyon. Set in Bercy, in the heart of the lesser-known and primarily residential 12th arrondissement, on the right bank of the River Seine, the setting is perfect for those seeking out a very different and far less clichéd side to the French capital.
Following top-to-toe renovations in 2015, all of the hotel's high-design guest rooms are arguably on-trend. Expect minimal décor with lashings of wooden fixtures, statement-making artworks, and a neutral palette of greys and whites with splashes of bright red.
After refuelling on sweet and savoury French goodies in the funky-looking breakfast room, spend your time getting to grips with this fascinating (and often crowd-free) part of the city. Most worthy of your attention is the Marché d’Aligre (a lively outdoor market known for its wonderful fresh produce), the landscaped Parc de Bercy for its pretty ponds, fountains and walkways, and the huge Bois de Vincennes park for its zoo, botanical garden, kids’ farm, and beautiful Buddhist temple.
