  • La Madeleine
  • price 2 of 4

They call it the 'contemporary cocoon', which couldn't be any more spot on for such a modern, calming oasis in the 8th Arrondissement, a little way away from La Madeleine. Hôtel Chavanel is all about refinement with a little added flair because, well, it's Paris. The boutique takes its inspiration for each of its 27 rooms from a Parisian home, offering guests a more intimate stay akin to an apartment. In other words, get cosy. We dare you. 

The mood? A taste of discrete luxury. 
Location perks? For those who want a more authentic experience during your stay, you'll absolutely love Hôtel Chavanel's thoughtfulness. And when you're done cocooning, you'll find famous attractions like Champs-Elysées, Tuileries Garden and Louvre all within reach. 
Budget range? A luxury few nights in Paris.

If you're looking for a taste of the Renaissance you've come to the right place. With each room uniquely decorated with frescos and blown glass, Hôtel Da Vinci immerses you in some of Leonardo's most famous works and drafts – A whetting of the appetite before getting up close and personal with his most famous work, the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. By the end of your trip, you'll be quoting Jacques Lacan on the fly, wearing turtle necks, and insisting that a 'French press is life'. 

The mood? Elegant and antique. 
Location perks? A stone's throw from Musée d'Orsay and Tuileries Garden. 
Budget range? A hefty price tag for an incredibly unique stay. 
Time Out Tip: Enjoy brunching at Café des Tuileries where you'll find the most sensational pain perdu (they're massive).

Stay in a former textile factory in the hip 11th Arrondissement, right by the Seine where you'll find a number of cute flea markets, galleries and artisanal shops. Charged with industrial flair and bold prints, each of Hotel Fabric's rooms is well-appointed with high ceilings, comfy beds, a flatscreen and stone-tiled bathrooms. Head to the communal lounge for the buffet breakfast each morning, and later on, enjoy mingling by the bar with a cocktail in hand before hitting the coolest bars in Eleventh Heaven.

Beyond the facade of this period building in the 17th arrondissement is a cosy hideaway where you can recover from trotting along the Seine all afternoon. Les Jardins De La Villa is the perfect place for taking a beat or – if you're anything like us – to reflect on the obscene amount just spent in Galeries Lafayette. whether it's you or your wallet that needs a respite, the elegant soundproofed rooms and landscaped courtyard will do the trick. 

The mood? Sophisticated and modern.

While we're on the topic of relaxation, it'd be wrong not to mention Hôtel COQ. Cosy is an understatement when it comes to this uber-cool boutique in the 13th arrondissement. Mood lighting, nooks, plush pillows and lots of little vintage touches are what give this place such a peaceful, trendy vibe. The 24-hour reception and concierge ensure your every need is met while the on-sight bar is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy.

But then again, could there be anything more idyllic than being a mere 10-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower? Rooms here boast contemporary and Baroque-style decor with bold, contrasting prints and lots of ornate detailing throughout, capturing both the eclecticism and refinement of Paris like a two-sided coin (only way fancier because it's Parris, dah). And because our furry friends deserve to get in on that eat-pray-love action, pets are also welcome here.
