Great Hotels in The Marais Paris
As well as being one of the most evocative districts of Paris, The Marais, is fast becoming the place to stay for both visitors and Parisiens alike. So now, as well as the trendy cafes and restaurants, art galleries, fabulous historic buildings and a delicious collection of boutiques, there’s also a number of great hotels. So our Gurus are here to help you separate the blé from the balle with their list of the best hotels in The Marais.
Best Hotels in The Marais for Period Style
Steeped in history, The Marais has managed to retain some of the character of mediaeval Paris. Its narrow lanes and unspoilt architecture appear untouched by the massive modernisation carried out by Napoleon III and Haussmann in the 19th century.
- If your idea of the best hotels in The Marais involves a bit of period luxury then try the Pavillon de la Reine situated on the Place des Vosges and once the home of Anne of Austria (Louis XIII's wife). It’s also ideal for honeymooners and perfect for a spot of romance and pampering!
For Designer Chic
- If you prefer more flair for your euro, the best hotel in The Marais for you might be the Hotel Bourg Tibourg. This handsome townhouse, which has been transformed into a flamboyant Moorish Palace by designer Jaques Garcia, is very romantic and certainly far more affordable than its famous sister establishment across town, the Costes.
- Or try Le Petit Moulin a Christian Lacroix designed offering which oozes style. Converted from one of Paris' oldest boulangerie - probably used by Victor Hugo - it’s now a super chic, but quiet haven in this busy neighbourhood, so probably also one of the best Hotels in The Marais for a Parisien retreat.
Best Hotels in The Marais for Urban Cool
- It’s not what this district is known for, but if you’re looking for an urban vibe then the Murano Urban Resort should tick all the right boxes; this is a hotel which feels like an nightclub in an Austin Powers meets A Clockwork Orange sort of way! Two of the 52 rooms have their own plunge pools. The really clever thing about this property s is how they fit everything in!
If you decide that the best hotels in the Marais are not up your street and you'd rather be on the Rive Gauche, take a look at our picks in Saint Germain des Prés and the Latin Quarter. Alternatively check out our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Paris.
