THE STORY? For its first pied-à-terre in Paris, the Maisons Pariente hotel group (Crillon Le Brave in Provence, Le Coucou in Méribel, Lou Pinet in Saint-Tropez) didn’t choose just any neighborhood: it chose the Marais, where a 14th-century mansion now houses Le Grand Mazarin. Inside? Chic and the unexpected, or when the classic French spirit meets the world of Wes Anderson! A daring alchemy created by the most British of Swedish designers, Martin Brudnizki, who has brought together the best in craftsmanship to leave nothing to chance. Hungarian point parquet flooring, Aubusson-style tapestry bed canopies, bathrooms with solid wood and black marble showers, all the rooms and suites have been treated like jewels. But the hotel also hides a secret winter garden, a mysterious cabaret, and a spa in collaboration with Oh My Cream… And if you want to eat in style, head to the Boubalé bar/restaurant, whose alluring (and hard-to-come-about) Ashkenazi cuisine was created by star chef Assaf Granit! Double rooms from €650 per night.
TOILETRIES: Diptyque shampoo, shower gel and soap.
BREAKFAST: Buffet for €45 including hot drinks, breads, pastries, jam, eggs, cheese, charcuterie…
