One of the beautiful things about traveling is a good hotel bed. I love it!!! But I confess that I also like the warmth of an Airbnb app. If you can put the two together, even better, right? That is the subject of today’s post. 🙂
I recently met the Paris Boutik hotel, which has a different concept. For starters, it’s literally a boutique hotel, as its two suites are in former Paris shops (I’ll explain later). Plus, it has all the comforts of a hotel and the warmth of an Airbnb. When I tested, I felt at home.
The Paris Boutik Concept
The purpose of the hotel is to offer more than a bed to sleep, an authentic experience. With that in mind, the owners refurbished two former commercial spaces to transform the place into themed hotel suites. Then we have:
⇒ Paris Boutik La Libraire: In Paris’s most trendy district, Le Marais, the premises of an old bookstore have been transformed into a charming 45m2 studio. And to maintain that intellectual atmosphere, the facade of the bookstore has been preserved – outsiders can’t imagine what it really is. Also, there are books everywhere, even in the bathroom. There are more than 4500 books. [12 rue Caffarelli – 75003]
⇒ Paris Boutik L’Epicerie: A duplex suite in the Bastille region and five minutes from Gare de Lyon station. A bit bigger than Libraire, the l’Epicerie room leaves you in the universe of a former neighborhood grocery store. You will sleep among typically French products. [12 Rue Parrot – 75012]
It is worth mentioning that both are equipped with king-size bed, bathtub, TV, coffee maker and electric kettle, hairdryer, among other amenities. With sofa beds, suites can accommodate up to four people.
My experience at Paris Boutik La Librairie
To really get to know the hotel, I spent one night in the La Librairie suite. It was awesome! For check-in, a person was waiting at the door, David. Upon entering, they showed us and explained everything to us. Functioning of each item (heater, door security, TV, etc.).
One detail, if the exit door does not close properly or stays open longer, activates the alarm and it receives a telephone alert. I kept recording video at the entrance and what happened? The alarm went off, of course. David was very helpful to us. At the time, he called to see if everything was all right. I liked this reactivity.
After some work, I tested the bathtub and found it quite spacious, unlike many hotels. Finally, the excellent bed that hugs you and won’t let you out anymore. With the isolation of the place, we heard no outside noise, which made it even harder to get up the next day hehe.
Usually, I don’t write about every hotel I try, but I really had a different and positive experience. I found it valid to share with you! 🙂
How to book one of the Paris Boutik suites
You have two options: directly on the Paris Boutik Hotel website or on Booking. You can see reviews and comments from others who have had the same experience as me. The daily rate starts at 320 euros for two people.
