The 5 best Boutique hotels

1) Hotel des Grandes Ecoles

One of the most amazing hotels in Paris is located in the centre of the Quartier Latin, near the Pantheon, at the end of a tree-lined courtyard. And yet it is largely unknown. This beautiful pink town house has 51 rooms with a vintage look and feel. The walls are covered with flowery wallpaper and the rooms furnished with antiques. The highlight is the quiet garden where breakfast is served as soon as the sun rises.

2) Hotel Particulier Montmartre

This Directoire period home in Montmartre was converted into a boutique hotel a few years ago. The enchanting large private garden makes visitors feel as if they are in large country house instead of in the centre of Paris. The 5 elegant suites were decorated with original themes: contemporary art works are combined with vintage furniture and wallpapers with eyecatching poetic patterns.

3) Le Citizen Hotel

Conveniently located on the banks of canal Saint-Martin this three-star hotel has 12 tiny rooms that were decorated by designer Christophe Delcourt. He used wood throughout the hotel, keeping the design minimalist, fun and bright. The rooms are simple and clean, like ultrafunctional cabins, with soft and natural furnishings.

4) Hotel du Petit Moulin

This hotel in the centre of the Marais district is like a wendy house. The designer, Christian Lacroix, decorated the 16 rooms, creating different, rustic, playful and eccentric worlds in which genres and eras collide to form a quirky yet cosy setting.
