I know exactly how you feel when you struggle to find a place to stay, when there is too much to choose from; area? Arrondissement? Apartment? Hotel? Affordable luxury or luxury?
Well, I have found the perfect hidden intimate and luxurious (without being stiff and too much gold, if you know what I mean) hotel in the Marais area.
Hotel Pavillon De La Reine is located on Place de Vosges, but has a hidden location. I have walked by many times without noticing the hotel.
Pavillon de la Reine is a cute and charming 5 star hotel, which has a stunning garden and a cosy living room/hang-out area. The hotel does not have a particular restaurant, but they have an all-day bar menu, which is great and tasty.
I stayed at the hotel for five nights in an amazing duplex suite overlooking the garden with sculptures and beautiful lights at night.
The hotel has a gym and a spa in the basement. The best part of the spa was the steam room. I believe I spent 15 minutes in the steam every evening. The steam room was big and not many people used it, so I had it for myself.
The hotel offers a breakfast buffet in the mornings where you get more than at a typical French breakfast place, where a coffee, croissant, and orange juice typically is mostly it! This buffet contained everything from fresh fruit, to pastries, juices, yoghurt and much more. Moreover, you can order eggs à la carte.
Furthermore, the service at the hotel was top! The staff was helpful, kind and super service-minded.
The area is one of my favourites in Paris, which is a huge plus. I love the Marais area because it's vibrant and filled with cafés, brasseries and shops. I can spend days just walking around this area and soaking in all the energy.
Here are some pictures from my stay at Pavillon De La Reine.

Thanks for this time Pavillon De La Reine. See you soon Paris!
