The French capital has just welcomed a new hotel into its fold and this time even the Parisians are checking-in to escape.
Hôtel du Sentier, the recently opened hotel in the second arrondissement, is a wonderfully charming hotel that overlooks the oldest and longest covered passageway in Paris, Passage du Caire. With only 30 rooms, the hotel is quaint and full of charm where the owners welcome guests themselves, offering a sweet b&b ambiance but with all the amenities of a 4-star hotel.
Created and designed to show off the neighbourhood's charm, each room in Hôtel du Sentier features stunning windows that overlook a romantic corner of the neighbourhood including the romantic grey rooftops of the French capital, the local boutiques and the historical passageway. With its facade classified as a historic monument with three statues of Hathor, the Egyptian goddess, adorning it, the hotel creates an invitation into a space swirling with history yet welcoming you into a new world. Once inside, the bare chic rooms are filled with light and a tone of "just what you need" in design with each room boasting a stunning bathroom with a different marble design, making each room unique. The most attractive rooms here are of course the ones on the top floor as they include private access to their very own rooftop terrace, which is accessed directly from the room via a winding staircase.
With lockdown still in place in Paris, Hôtel du Sentier is a wonderful staycation destination as not only can you get away and spend a weekend in a charming hotel room but you can also dine on Parisian brasserie fare courtesy of the hotel's traditional restaurant. The ingenious owners of the hotel have placed a traditional brasserie round table and two chairs in each room, transporting guests to a French café without even leaving their room. And forget bland and unimaginative room service dishes, here you can dine on entrecôte and frites!
