I have been lucky enough to have had some amazing stays in Paris over the years. I prefer Boutique Hotels in Paris over larger hotels for the personalized service and attention to detail. I have stayed at Grand Hôtel du Palais Royal three times now and visited a few times for meals and cocktails and the front desk remembers my face every time. This is my list of 10 which I hope will continue to grow. If you have a favorite hotel or place to stay in Paris please comment below and share it with all of us. Below is my list of boutique hotels in Paris that I have loved and stayed at and can recommend to anyone traveling to Paris.
Le Narcisse Blanc on the Left Bank is a gem on the Left Bank and a dream for design lovers. I really enjoyed my stay here and can’t wait to visit again soon. The whole hotel is in the palate of cream, gold, and pink which is my favorite color scheme. I felt right at home in this cozy hotel. I stayed in the lobby while my room was being prepared and I felt so relaxed in the center of Paris. I enjoyed tea and cookies while people-watching in the lobby. I loved the natural light coming in from the big windows. Even on a grey day in Paris, the lobby feels bright and airy.
You can enjoy breakfast in the hotel restaurant or you can order room service. It was nice to order breakfast up to the room so I could extend working a bit on my computer before setting out for a day of exploring. The hotel is close to the Musée D’Orsay so if this museum is on your list, you are in a prime location.
The hotel has a small pool, wellness center, and spa by Clarins to enjoy while fighting the jet lag or refresh after a long day of sightseeing. This is one of the most booked hotels by blog readers.
Hotel Monge is located on the Left Bank of Paris not far from Jardin des Plantes and close to the Latin Quarter. I stayed here when they first opened two years ago and the staff was so sweet and I loved the attention to detail in every room. Upon arrival, I was welcomed as I was staying in someone’s home instead of being another number at a large hotel. The Juliette balcony was a nice touch and I had a great view outside my window. If you are looking for a Left Bank affordable clean hotel, this is a great option. Hotel Monge’s ambiance and decor are a nod to the nearby Jardin des Plantes.
Pavillon de la Reine is located in the heart of The Marais in the center of Place des Vosges is Pavillon de la Reine. I found this hotel on my walk back in 2013 and had the pleasure of staying here a few years ago. I have been able to return for stays in both the fall and spring. The balconies in the front are covered in ivy and in the summer, the scent of jasmine fills the air. It is the perfect location in Paris. If you have a room in the interior courtyard of the hotel, you will have a quiet and private room for your stay.
Pavillon de la Reine is tucked away in the center of The Marais in Place des Vosges. You are within walking distance of so many great tourist destinations in Paris and also local Parisian spots in the area. Pro tip: stop by Chez Janou for a glass of wine or dinner on the terrace.
Pavillon de la Reine has a really good breakfast. Their coffee is one of my favorites in terms of hotel coffee and I love their croissants. Order a pot of coffee over a café crème or cappuccino. The breakfast room is located on the ground floor where you can also enjoy the patio for a cup of afternoon tea or a glass of wine. There is a fitness room on the ground floor along with a spa and hot tub.
Pavillon des Lettres is the sister hotel of Pavillon de la Reine. Located in the 8th arrondissement close to Madeleine and Opéra. I have stayed here twice and you may be familiar with the name because my art is hanging here for an exhibition. My photography is hanging in the hotel. I stayed in Diderot both times and really love the wrap-around balcony and I personally think it is the best room in the hotel.
26 rooms make up the hotel and each is named for a different French author and a letter of the alphabet. The staff is really wonderful with every detail and they are happy to give recommendations for places to eat and drink in the area. Pavillon des Lettres has Le Mess located just next door for a classic Parisian experience of Mad Men for drinks which is on the trendier side.
Hôtel Thèrése is by the same owners as Adèle and Jules. I stayed here a few years ago. The service was personal and they were more than happy to give recommendations for restaurants and shops nearby. You can’t beat the location in the center of Paris with a short walk to Palais Royal. If you are visiting the city for the first time, this is a great location.
Le Cinq Codet is located on the Left Bank close to the Eiffel Tower and Invalides. I had the pleasure of staying here in April of 2018. My room had stunning views of the Eiffel Tower and it was located on a quiet street. Don’t miss out on the Sunday Brunch. It is worth it and you can enjoy it in their intimate courtyard. It is a great way to escape the busy city life. This 5-star hotel has incredible service from start to finish.
I did my research on Maison Athénée and found they had some of the best reviews in Paris for a Boutique Hotel. They also did a little research on me before I arrived and knew some of my favorite things. This hotel went above and beyond to make my stay a memorable one. I loved the note they included with my breakfast and I still kept it to this day. I arrived back at the hotel late at night and they made sure to find something that I could eat for dinner so I didn’t go to bed hungry. There was a great view outside my room located in the 9th arrondissement.
Maison Mère originally reached out to me which is how I discovered them. They are a newly opened hotel in the 9th arrondissement. I booked a weekend in Paris and the city was fully booked but lucky for me, I was able to snag a room at this hotel. None of the stay was sponsored, I paid for my room. Google reviews of 4.9 are what convinced me to book this hotel. It is also very close to Adele and Jules which meant I already was familiar with the neighborhood.
The hotel has a co-working space for digital nomads along with a bar called Hey Honey. I would recommend skipping the continental breakfast and hitting a local boulangerie and coffee shop nearby. We walked from the hotel to all the different parts of the city. It is very close to Montmartre but also a good straight walk down to Palais Royal.
For those looking for an affordable clean, and well-situated Parisian hotel, this is it. Room rates can run under $200. I ended up getting upgraded to a balcony room which was lovely. If it is within your budget, I highly recommend it. We were able to sit outside with cheese, wine, and a baguette and enjoy the weather.
Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais is located on one of my favorite streets in Paris and is in the heart of The Marais. I highly recommend getting a balcony facing the street for a great view. You can take breakfast in your room and for 12 euros it is the biggest and best breakfast I have enjoyed. The hotel is a little less modern than some of the others but has lots of charm. Plus, you can’t beat the location.
This was one of my favorite stays in Paris. This is where we hosted the girl’s Atlas Adventures Paris trip and everyone enjoyed the hotel just as much as I have in my past stays. I loved the central location, and service, and the window view from my hotel room was one to remember. Who wouldn’t want to wake up here? I will say that I have referred many people to this hotel and I have never heard a bad thing. Everyone is always so happy with their stay which means a lot to me. I value my recommendations and want you all to have a fabulous trip to Paris. It is one of the best hotels in Paris for its value.
The hotel is in the 9th arrondissement close to a metro station or close walking to some great restaurants in Paris. Discover more about the 9th arrondissement in this post here.
This is another new hotel located in the heart of Saint-Germain. It is owned by the same group that owns Pavillon de la Reine and Pavillon des Lettres. They have a formula for a good hotel and it works well. I arrived in Paris just as this hotel was putting the finishing touches before opening in April. Luckily, I was able to make it back in May and booked a night during my weekend in Paris. They were fully booked over the weekend but had availability on Sunday night. I really wanted to stay here to be able to try it for the blog so we switched from the Right Bank to the Left Bank for our last night.
The hotel didn’t disappoint. We had a beautiful street view of Paris. The guest rooms were equipped with the newest technology including a flat-screen tv, free wifi, and USB chargers. This view was stunning and the street was so quiet. I honestly wish we could have stayed here longer. Pavillon Faubourg Saint Germain was a dream of a hotel, everything was brand new and the rain shower after a long day of walking in the city was the perfect place to stop and rest. There was an indoor pool but we didn’t have a chance to use it during our visit.
I asked the hotel if they could offer readers a special welcome for booking. If you book directly with the hotel (I get no kickback) and mention the blog Everyday Parisian upon booking, they will greet you with half a bottle of champagne, macarons, and a delicious French breakfast buffet.
The hotel is perfectly located just 5 minutes walking to the famous Boulevard Saint Germain des Près in central Paris. You have the best of both worlds with a quiet street and just steps away from the best parts of Paris. You are also a quick walk to the Rodin Museum and the Louvre.
One of my favorite hotels in Paris is Grand Hotel du Palais Royal. The hotel is just outside Palais Royal and is a prime location for exploring Paris. They have views of Paris from the rooms of Palais Royal and the Eiffel Tower. It is a small hotel but all the rooms are spacious. The Eiffel Tower suite has almost a 360-degree view of Paris with a view of the Eiffel Tower. You are within walking distance of The Louvre museum, The Seine, and The Tuileries Garden.
Pro Tip: Make a reservation for lunch or dinner at Le Lulli inside the hotel. The hotel is a 5-minute walk to Palais Royal for an afternoon stroll and a coffee at Café Kitsuné. This is always the first place I recommend to friends.
Saint James Paris hotel is a newly remodeled hotel that was an old private mansion. It is close to the Arc de Triomphe and has a beautiful garden in the back with a bar. This unique hotel was on my bucket list for years. I wanted to stay here for a few years after having a drink at the bar back in 2019. This is where we stayed when we were engaged so it will always have personal meaning to me. Make sure to enjoy breakfast in the lovely breakfast room and a cocktail in the library bar.
The hotel is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Paris. There is a spa and an indoor swimming pool as part of the hotel. This is one of the best boutique hotels in Paris.
There are a lot of hotels in Paris and this is just a small handful. I only included the ones that I have personally stayed at. I hope to add to the list this year. This post does include affiliate links that help with my coffee and croissant research.
