Rates: from €150
Added extras: the panoramic view of the Seine
This hotel was the final piece of the jigsaw for the Seine. It has its clubs, barge-restaurants and other cruise ships moored on its banks, but now it finally has its own floating hotel at Quai d’Austerlitz. Opened in June 2016 and designed by Gérard Ronzatti, Off Paris Seine is drawing the crowds to its enormous wood, zinc and glass structure. This has to be one of the most impressive hotel locations of the year.
A budget between €150 and €450 will get you one of the 58 ultra-modern 14m2 bedrooms. However, those wishing to splash out can enjoy one of the four suites sized between 28m2 and 30m2. The rooms are beautifully designed with a clean but warm aesthetic and needless to say, the view of the Right Bank is spectacular.
The hotel also boasts a marina and a bar-restaurant (for non-guests too) with a panoramic view and a 400m2 terrace. The designers tested the boat and it’s all aboard for everyone – even those prone to sea legs.
