When visiting Paris, the choices are plentiful for accomodation. Whether you prefer famous 5-star properties, well-known chains or private apartment rentals – there is something for everyone. However, the increasing demand for experiential travel has come with requests from travelers for a more “authentic” experience, which has boosted the proliferation of different and original boutique hotels all around town.
If you’re looking for a stay with character without compromising on luxury and quality, check out our top picks below for the best boutique hotels in Paris in 2020.
Le Pavillon de la Reine
The Pavillon de la Reine is a luxury boutique hotel based in the center of the iconic Le Marais neighborhood. Located in a tucked-away 17th-century building at Place des Vosges – one of the most picturesque squares in Paris–, the name of the hotel is a reference to Queen Anne of Austria (the mother of Louis XIV), because she once stayed here. The Pavillon de la Reine is a very elegant choice for those looking to have a romantic stay in Paris.
Le Prince Regent
Having had the chance to stay in this Residence style hotel twice, I’ve fallen in love with this hotel located near the Luxembourg Gardens and the Sorbonne on the elegant Rue Monsieur Le Prince. This is a charming 18th-century Parisian apartment building which has been restored and redesigned into large suite apartments filled with contemporary furniture, perfect for a family visit to Paris.
Le Petit Chomel
This boutique hotel is one of the most cosy in town. Designed to look like a French country house, unique and antique furniture pieces give the interiors a rustic charm in the center of Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood. The hotel is located just around the corner from the iconic Bon Marché department store.
Hotel Bel Ami
This five-star hotel has a super sleek and chic design. Also located in the heart of Saint Germain, Bel Ami embraces the artistic spirit of the neighborhood with its art installations and designer furniture. If you are an art and design enthusiast, this hotel is a must during your stay in Paris.
Hotel Particulier Montmartre
Nestled away in the hill tops of Montmartre above Paris, this hotel is a well-kept secret. Having only five suites, it is a very small hotel that is hidden away on a private path surrounded by greenery. Each of the suites is unique and has its own theme, designed by artists, making the swanky hôtel particulier a hidden gem of Paris.
