THE STORY: The Adresses Hotels group (Monsieur Aristide, Maison Saintonge, Hôtel des Académies et des Arts, La Ponche) has been on a real rollercoaster ride as of late, and the latest loop in their attraction is Hôtel Hana: a very chic spot with a flowery Japanese name, which sprouted a stone’s throw from the Paris Opera house. The soul of the place is triumphant, as interior designer Laura Gonzalez and art director Olivier Leone cleverly combined Japanese minimalism with Belle Époque ostentation, all while specializing in the art of hospitality from the archipelago. A combination that’s on full display in the wabi-sabi-inspired bedrooms (iroko wood furniture, straw coverings, rugs by Marguerite Le Maire), the lobby with seating as intricate as kimonos, and even the restaurant with communal seating, Hanabi, which skillfully performs a balancing act between French and Japanese gastronomy – an idea from Shirley Garrier, one half of The Social Food. In short, a match made in heaven. Double rooms starting at €390 a night. 

TOILETRIES: Diptyque soap, shampoo and body wash.  
BREAKFAST: A €33 option, which includes hot drinks, fresh fruit juice, viennoiseries from Frédéric Lalos, fruit salad, Greek yogurt, eggs cooked any way you like… Plus, two Japanese dishes available à la carte: Udon English Breakfast or salmon ochazuke (€18 each). 
LITTLE LUXURY: Let yourself be pampered by a host of inspired treatments – reiki, kobido, chi nei tsang…
