Paris : Hôtel Caron de Beaumarchais

Hôtel Caron du Beaumarchais

For the past couple of years, I have always loved walking down Vieille du Temple in the Marais. You can’t help but notice the bright blue facade of Hôtel Caron de Beaumarchais. I always walk past it on my way to grab coffee at Au Petit Fer A Cheval. When I was looking for a place to stay in October my friend Carl of Posh Chicago suggested I try the hotel.

I was in luck as they are usually full and I was able to secure a night booking. The rates are extremely reasonable and you can’t ask for a better location. There are inside rooms facing the street and a few facing the courtyard. The courtyard is quieter but I was really happy with the view overlooking the street.

I arrived as the light was hitting the buildings across the way. I sat there watching the street and the people go by and soaked it all up.

The room was small but that is also typical of Paris hotels. There was a cute writing desk I could set my computer up to work on and a wardrobe to put my belongings away. The bathroom was stocked with Annick Goutal products. The bed was comfortable and I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. I loved the tiny details of the room from the exposed wood beams in the ceiling and the chandelier in the entry.

You can see almost to île st louis from the window. It is a quick walk to the Seine for sunset which shouldn’t be missed.

The surrounding areas are filled with restaurants and cafés to keep you busy. In the neighborhood, you will also find La Cuisine Paris for cooking classes. This is where I learned to make French Onion Soup, Macarons, and Eclairs.

You have the option to add breakfast to your room for 12 euros. I highly recommend it. You can take it in the breakfast room downstairs or you can have it delivered to your room for the same price. It is the same price as most restaurants for juice, coffee, and a croissant but instead, you get so much more.

There is homemade confiture, butter, and warm fresh croissants. I would be lying if I said I didn’t try everything on this tray. Let’s call it research…. I didn’t eat until dinner I was so full. You can eat in the comfort of your own room and enjoy the view from the window.

While the hotel is considered a three-star hotel, I would say its service ranked right in line with the four and five-star hotels that I have stayed at in Paris. The breakfast is by far one of the best I have ever had in terms of value. The room rates average around 100 euros a night so if you are looking for a great place to stay in the heart of the city that won’t break the bank this is it!

  1. In 2006 I had a couple of days to myself in Paris and stayed at this hotel. It was quintessentially Parisian with its mix of history, charm and elegance, as well as having friendly & helpful concierges. Even the breakfast was simple and perfect. So glad to see not much has changed at the Caron de Beaumarchais! Thanks for the memory.

  2. Hi Rebecca – I discovered your site earlier today and loved reading your recommendations .
    We leave for Paris next week and will be staying in the Invalides area . I would love some very reasonable recommendations whether it be great coffee shop or boulangerie or a meal . Our exchange rate in South Africa makes the holiday ahead “ terrifying “ 🤣🤣

  3. Hi Rebecca! My husband and I are looking to plan an anniversary trip to Paris fall 2018 (1 year, woo!) and I absolutely fell in love with this hotel! Thank you so much for posting! As first time Chicago-ians visiting Paris, what month / time frame do you recommend? We’re looking any time from July-December, but not sure which season / month is best. I appreciate your thoughts and please keep the Paris posts coming!

    • Hi Nikki,

      This is such a cute hotel! Make sure you get a street facing view with a balcony. Also, breakfast in your room is a must! I would say skip the summer months, september/october/november/december are good. You will find an indian summer in september and quiet in october november. If you want to enjoy Christmas in the city, December is great but it will be busier than Autumn!
