When I was a kid, I wanted to own a hotel. I loved travel at a young age, and my sister and I would create travel itineraries for our parents before going on any trip just for fun. The passion for travel is still alive, and so is planning trips (aka The Paris Guide) and discovering new hotels. Part of my research includes looking for new Paris hotels and openings. The City of Light constantly evolves with openings in every arrondissement. This post is all about the five best new hotels in Paris to consider booking for your next trip.
If you are looking for other hotel options, you can always check out this blog post about boutique hotels in Paris.
You will find the newly opened Le Grand Mazarin in the heart of the Marais. I have had my eye on the opening of this hotel for quite some time, and it was worth the wait. The photos online do not do the space and decor justice. I highly recommend splurging for an upgraded room. Some of the guest rooms have balconies to overlook the city of Paris. Enjoy a breakfast or a glass of wine while watching the sunset. The five-star hotel has thought of every detail for their guests. I especially loved the turndown service, where we were greeted with something sweet at night and our slippers and water. The staff went above and beyond to make my stay memorable and special.
It truly is the ideal location if you love the Marais. We could explore Parisian cafés, shop, stroll the Seine, and quickly drop off shopping bags.
Don’t miss the indoor swimming pool on the ground floor. Having an indoor pool in a hotel is rare, and now it is becoming more popular with new hotels in Paris. The space is small but stunning. You have to be a hotel guest or accompany someone. There is a unique code to access the pool that is only shared with guests. Next to the pool is a small fitness room with everything you need for a workout.
Le Grand Mazarin also has a restaurant and cocktail bar with Israeli cuisine called Boubalé. The restaurant is quickly becoming a hot reservation, and it took a little work to grab a table for two. Sit at the chef’s area at the bar to look into the kitchen in action. The chefs will interact with you, making the experience unique. Each dish has a story and purpose, and the staff is passionate about the food. Our waiter shared personal stories about each dish and why they were important to him and the restaurant. Don’t miss the cheesecake for dessert.
Anyone can easily access the cocktail bar from Rue des Archives, but the space is small, so plan to grab a seat accordingly. I found the prices of the cocktails to be half the price of luxury hotels in the area, making it much more approachable for more to enjoy.
Just off the Champs Elysées is a new boutique hotel, Château des Fleurs, from the owners of Saint James Paris and Relais Christine. Château des Fleurs has stylish rooms with the theme of an old train car, and you will notice each of these details throughout the hotel. It is a boutique hotel with just 37 rooms and suites. The hotel is centrally located, just a stone’s throw away from iconic landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Enjoy the public spaces, including a center lobby/bar area to let guests mingle and meet each other. The library is a cozy space just off the main lobby area.
Château des Fleurs has an area for spa treatment, a fitness center, and an indoor pool. The pool is currently under construction but will be beautiful once completed.
They also have another property in the Golden Triangle area just around the corner called Hotel Norman, which has a Mod style. Don’t miss the in-house restaurant featuring Thai cuisine called Thiou, which I had the opportunity to dine at while in Paris on my most recent visit. I have stayed at Saint James Paris and Relais Christine and look forward to staying at the new hotels with the same service and standards soon.
Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germain opened in 2022 and is part of the same group that owns Pavillon de la Reine and Pavillon des Lettres. They took the same great style elements and service and brought them to the heart of Saint Germain. I have stayed here three times in the last year and love the location and coziness of this boutique hotel. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the side street, perfect for letting fresh air in and enjoying the Parisian rooftops. Don’t miss the bar for a cocktail and the restaurant for lunch or dinner. In the winter, a wood-burning fireplace is in the lobby to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.
The staff goes out of their way to make you feel like Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germain is your home in Paris. The central location on the Left Bank can’t be beat, and you will be a short walk to Luxembourg Gardens and Boulevard Saint Germain des Près and all the shopping and cafés the area offers.
Cheval Blanc Paris is one of the newest Parisian palace hotels in the luxury category. The hotel offers 72 rooms and suites in a historical building just a quick walk to the Marais and Left Bank. Cheval Blanc’s elegant rooms are beautifully decorated with views of the Seine River and Place Dauphine. The location is in the heart of Paris and easily walkable to many monuments, shops, and restaurants. Pont Neuf is outside the hotel entrance, making it easily accessible to the rest of Paris.
Le Tout Paris offers breathtaking views of the Seine, Eiffel Tower, and Notre Dame. Visit the rooftop terrace with a bar for a cocktail and to enjoy the view. Enjoy dinner here by booking a table even if you aren’t a hotel guest. My advice is to plan around sunset and the Eiffel Tower sparkle.
La Fantaisie is a burst of color and one of the newest 5-star luxury boutique hotels to open in Paris. It is located in the Faubourg Montmartre neighborhood in the 9th arrondissement. Hotel guests can view the private garden or the city view of Rue Cadet. The spa offers treatment rooms with a menu of options along with a jacuzzi, cold plunge, or mineral pool.

Hôtel Dame des Arts is another new one that opened in the old Holiday Inn hotel in the Latin Quarter near Notre Dame. Once Notre Dame Cathedral reopens, this will be a great location if you are looking for easy access. The rooftop bar offers a panoramic view offers views of the Eiffel Tower. Some hotel rooms also provide Eiffel Tower views, which is incredible to fall asleep if you dream of Paris. I will note I stayed here in April for my birthday and the rooms are small. Remember this, especially if you plan to travel with a friend or loved one. A lot of the rooms are just 15 sq meters. If you want a larger room, you must pay more for one of the suites. The largest suite is only 32 sq meters and is on the ground floor.
Hotel guests can access the rooftop throughout their stay with a key card.
The breakfast in the lobby area was well done and offered high-end pastries, juices, and fruit. It is worth splurging on if you are just in for a weekend but not necessary for a long stay. There are plenty of neighborhood cafés and boulangeries for coffee and croissants. The fitness center in the basement is worth checking out.
