The 5 best boutique hotels in Paris

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.
