Location-wise, it doesn’t get much better than Hotel de Neuve. A four-minute walk from Place des Vosges, Saint-Paul metro (considered the very heart of the Marais) and a ten-minute walk to the Seine, it is a weekend visitor's dream. Tucked off a Marais side street, the snug reception area (which doubles up as a breakfast room) is decorated in Marie-Antoinette style wallpaper, with bookcases filled with cute knick-knacks and antique tomes. Warm and smiley reception staff are on hand 24/7 to help with any queries and know the area like the back of their hand, so don’t hesitate to take their advice when venturing out into the city.
Rooms are modest and decorated simply in fuchsia and white, with TVs, ensuite bathrooms, super comfortable beds and either a street view or a view onto the Paris rooftops. All rooms have a kettle and hot drinks supplies but guests are also welcome to take afternoon tea in the reception from 2 to 6pm every day. Perfect for those needing a breather and a sugar hit in the middle of a hardcore sightseeing day. The hot and cold buffet breakfast (which can be served straight to your room) is an extra €10, but there’s also a takeaway option for €5.50.
With double rooms starting at €82 per night, this is the perfect budget boutique hotel: friendly, cosy and functional, it is everything you’d need for a jam-packed stay in Paris.
