CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round

THE STORY: After Grand Pigalle (Paris) and Henrietta (London), the Experimental Group opened a third hotel just off Boulevard Poissonnière. Dating back from before the French Revolution, the space was completely remodeled by designer Dorothée Meilichzon, with a very Versaille and Marie-Antoinette-inspired feel, aligning classicism and rustic twists. The result? A highly gypset aesthetic, bringing together four-poster beds, incredible mattresses that are made in Brittany, red marble Louis 16th bedside tables, bouquets that resemble still lifes, whitewashed walls, linen curtains and wobbly driftwood stools. Double rooms starting at €200 a night.

TOILETRIES: Codage soap and body lotion, Ren shower gel, Evolve shampoo and Sachajuan conditioner, all presented in a little canvas bag.
INTERNET: Wifi (free).
BREAKFAST: €19, with coffee or tea, bread, viennoiseries, charcuterie and eggs.
MINI-BAR: Yes, with bottled cocktails, Blanton’s and Nikka whiskeys, Fentimans ginger beer, Curiosity soda, Ten Acre popcorn and chips, and Cyril Lignac chocolate bars. Plus, there’s New By tea and a Sjöstrand coffee maker, with Cru Café pods.
LITTLE LUXURY: In order to allow guests to travel light, the hotel loans out exercise clothing, clean sneakers included!
