L’Hotel is a charming boutique bolthole located in the arty left bank of Paris. Being Oscar Wilde’s last humble abode has done wonders for the hotel’s marketing team and made the hotel quite the Parisian society highlight.
Renowned designer Jacques Garcia has given the property a hip new face lift, and no doubt Oscar would approve of the decadent bohemian feel. All 20 guest rooms and suites differ in size and have been individually decorated with theatrical flare. Think fabric covered walls, stylish furnishings, golden antiques and halls filled with original 19th century art works and Oscar Wilde accolades.
L'Hotel's Le Restaurant is simply Le Best, with Michelin star recognition and outstanding cuisine. Generally speaking if anything has a French label we assume it will be of a high quality, and this is very much the case in Le Restaurant, with its gourmet dishes, excellent service and superb wine list.
No prizes for guessing what the hotel's bar is called, and guests and visitors alike tend to linger in Le Bar for a glimpse of the long established left bank glamour this bar has in spades. Oh, and the cocktails aren't bad either.
Aside from exploring nearby art galleries, patisseries and French boutiques, guests can relax in the secluded hammam pool and steam room on the lower ground floor, where pampering treatments are also available.
Why we love it
Long since heralded as the art boutique hotel of choice, L'Hotel now houses original Jean Cocteau drawings that hang in the lobby.
