Last month I went to Paris for a day to meet Lix. I needed to have a change of scenery. I was inside most of the two last month with a broken ankle. Was that easy for me and my mood? No! I always have to do something. A rest for a day or two is great, but after that I am bored. It was a good idea to go to Paris and I looked at hotels that were central, not too big and whose interior design pleased my eye. In the end I chose my favourite, the boutique Hotel R de Paris in Rue de Clichy, not too far from the famous Moulin Rouge and the Palais Garnier Opera House.
Hotel R de Paris was completely renovated in 2013 and brings together tradition and modernity ‘in the spirit of a chic Parisian apartment.’ I absolutely fell in love with the interior design and it’s by far my favourite hotel room design. I stayed at a lot of amazing hotels in the past and while their interior design has been great too, this is how I would design my bedroom at home. It comes with a lovely sized bathroom and a separate toilet. There is a lot of mosaic in the bathroom and I am usually not a fan of mosaic. If it’s done properly, it looks amazing, but the mosaic trend has become so popular it often just looks tacky. However, the interior designer at Hotel R has done it just right. Take a look for yourself!
The bathroom offers an Italian shower with an LED chromotherapy system, dressing gowns, slippers and a range of luxury welcome gifts from Hermès, heated towel rails and of course a hair dryer. The toiletries smell so good, I actually took one set of them home.
I stayed in one of the Executive rooms on the fifth floor. I was lucky to have a room with its own balcony overlooking Rue de Clichy and Rue Moncey. The executive rooms are between 20-25m² and are all equipped with a high-end 180x200cm bed. The bed is so comfortable I really didn’t want to get out of bed. Unfortunately Lix’s coach got into Paris very early and I had to wake up at 6am. Next time in Paris I will not wake up much earlier than check out time. Every room has its own individual remote control heating and air conditioning, that’s a big plus for me as I love to have the AC on full-blast. It’s a non smoking hotel.
If you are planning to visit Paris, I can only recommend you staying at this hotel. Considering hotel prices in Paris, this upmarket boutique hotel is very reasonably priced. I paid 156€ for my night at the hotel. The staff at the hotel have been incredibly helpful, friendly and made my stay a very pleasant one. Would I return to Hotel R de Paris? Bien sûr!
