Whether you're honeymooning in Paris for the weekend, you're visiting with friends or flying solo, do Paris in style. It'd be criminal not to…

  • Grands Boulevards

Small in stature, yet grand in style. This playful tribute to Justine and Charles Favart is best characterised by its romantic 18th-century decor and artistic flair that provides guests with a blissful momentary escape  a journey that begins in one of the small but comfy, uniquely-furnished rooms and suites – though, is likely to end with a massage at the stone vaulted spa. You'll find this little charmer nestled in the 2nd arrondissement, just a five-minute stroll to Opéra Garnier and Grands Boulevards. 

The mood? Charming and theatrical. 
Location perks? It's all about French-style hospitality here.

  • Saint-Georges

While we're on the topic of hedonism, we may as well indulge a while longer by putting a spotlight on the infamous Maison Souquette - a former brothel, turned glamorous underworld. Here you'll find walls lined with 1895 cordova leather, Moorish earthenware, porcelain, copper and bric-a-brac furniture. Once you've dropped your bags, you can grab a drink at the cocktail bar and later, head to the spa, complete with a swimming pool you can rent by the hour.

The mood? Lavish and mysterious.
Location perks? Situated in the Montmartre district: full of cobbled lanes, street artists and cute little confectioners.
Budget range? A frivolous two nights.

  • Saint-Georges

In the heart of Pigalle, just a few yards from the Moulin Rouje, in a classic Hausmanian building, you'll discover retro-style rooms that feel just about as laid-back and cool as SoPi itself. Sporting brassy tones, and dark, sultry greens and blues that capture both the hedonism and cosmopolitan spirit of this historic neighbourhood. 

The mood? Bobo, chic.  
Location perks? The must-try Frenchie restaurant has racked up a lot of press for its edgy take on gourmet and late-night cocktail bar.  
Budget range? Budget-friendly weekend, or make that adventure. 

Le Pavillon de la Reine & Spa

  • Le Marais

Like something straight off a Pinterest board, discover Le Pavillion de la Reine on one of the most beautiful squares in Paris. No ordinary stay means, no ordinary entrance either.  Once you pass the discrete threshold of this vine-trailed 17th-century build, it's through to the blissful flower-filled courtyard for a quiet read or some refreshments. Rooms here are elegantly decorated, spacious and fit for royalty. Should you fancy, you can also pedal around Le Marais on one of the hotel's complimentary bikes. 

The mood? Magical.

This hotel gets its name from notorious 19th-century it-girl and literary salon host Juliette Récamier - a homage located in the Saint-German, with each floor carrying inspiration from Juliette's life. Each room contains a vibrant colour palette and a blend of modern and antique furnishings.

Each of these elegantly made-up guestrooms invites you to peer into the genius of the artist, in some cases, transporting you altogether.

Budget range? Pricey, but truly one of a kind.

  • Champs-Elys茅es

Since there isn't a really word in the English language that can describe Hotel Vernet's boisterous yet elegant style, we've just gone with cool. Adored for almost 100 years, it sits between the Golden Triangle and Place de l'Etoile, and continues to stun with Carrara marble basins, glass mosaics, brass fittings, glass lift and domed roof whose geometric wizardry demands you look up and sneak a quick pic during brunch. 

The mood? Hip and elegant.
Location perks?
Close to Champs Elysée and Arc de Triomphe.
Budget range? Top dollar, but worth the five-star treatment.

  • Le Marais

Given that it's housed in an old 17th-century convent, Hôtel de Joséphine Bonaparte can be forgiven its various idiosyncrasies. Such as the wavy beams that span the ceilings – all original no less – or its modestly sized rooms, some of which are really quite snug. But the decor and vibe more than makes up for it. Each dwelling is uniquely adorned with thick busy drapes, elaborate wallpaper and chevron parquet flooring. There are sleek Victorian-style bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities, free wifi and TVs in every room too. And when you venture out, it's less than a five-minute walk to Saint-Paul metro station and just a little further to the beatiful Place des Vosges, the oldest planned square in the city.

The mood? Ecelctic dreams.
Location perks? In the heart of the trendy Le Marais district.
Budget range? Pretty spenny.

The Originals Boutique, H么tel Maison Montmartre Paris Les Puces

While the decor at The Originals may not wow you, the view will. Atop this Jenga-style modernist grey block is a fab rooftop bar that offers stunning vistas of the hilly Montmartre district. Each of the 185 modest rooms are tastefully fashioned and come equipped with a kettle, coffee machine, flat-screen TV and desk – or you can make use of the co-working areas. Plus, if per chance you're planning to drive, there's a secure parking garage beneath it (at an extra cost).

The mood? Modernist on the outside, simple modern inside.
Location perks? Drop-dead views of Sacré Coeur, which is just a 30-minute walk, and the Eiffel Tower.
Budget range? Surprisingly affordable.
