A chic apartment in a hôtel particulier down a calm street in the trendy district of Le Marais — this location is very hard to beat. The surrounding neighbourhood is packed full of quirky shops, contemporary restaurants and galleries dedicated to everything from magic and Parisian history to Pablo Picasso. The living space itself is certainly cosy, but attention has gone into every aspect of the design. We love the pink velvet headboard on the bed and the royal blue bathroom with a gold shower head to envy. Downstairs, guests will find a lounge room with a bar in which to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine. If you're planning a quick stopover in Paris, or just prefer the feel of hotels over houses, this is a great choice.
