Paris, “the most beautiful city in the world,” the city where romanticism and closeness melt together. An idyllic setting which has been attracting more and more newlyweds every year. At the heart of the capital, many hotels offer both original and varied services. In between modernism, chic, originality, and historicity of Paris’ older times, let’s discover together 10 Parisian hotels that will offer you a magic moment for your honeymoon.
1) Hotel Design Secret de Paris**** – A romantic interlude
Area: Opéra – Haussmann
2, rue de Parme, 75009
In the very centre of the 9th district of Paris, in the Trinité quarters, very close to the Galeries Lafayette, the Opéra and the Montmartre village, you’ll be enchanted by the Hotel Design Secret de Paris luxury and sense of privacy and intimacy. A few minutes away from the Moulin Rouge cabaret, the hotel provides you with a great opportunity: a love escape in a romantic setting. The purpose is simple: let the client discover the beautiful side of Paris; with every new room comes a new discovery, a new trip.
All the rooms are unique and embody one particular Parisian monument. Thus, micro worlds have been created for you inside the building. One of the rooms is dedicated to the Moulin Rouge: its atmosphere is romantic, which makes it cosy enough for a couple. A poster of the renowned cabaret hangs on the wall, along with fire red curtains and sconces.
The “Tour Eiffel” room reveals a rather less hushed but equally romantic atmosphere. The style comes from the 20th century, and the whole room is a mirror of the actual iron tower: the carpeting is tweed grey, the silvery bed head represents the pillars and the bathroom has a deep blue lighting. Everything was made so as to remind you of the monument’s magical setting.
One of the hotel services is called “Romance in Paris”: rose petals are scattered all over your bed, along with a bunch of flowers, upon the day of your arrival. You will also enjoy a bottle of champagne and you even have the possibility to drink it with your partner in one of the double bathtubs provided for you by the hotel. Once again, you see how well the pursuit of privacy and romanticism has been achieved! You will also benefit from a spa opened 24 hours a day, for a relaxing moment as a couple.

The Parc Monceau is also located a few minutes’ walk away from the hotel; such romantic scenery for a walk as a couple in the capital!
The rooms and suites follow the charming path of the area. The rooms are wide and modern; however, they keep the enchanting and the intimate aspects of the whole place. You will pick either classic rooms, or “superior,” or “deluxe” rooms; they all tend to achieve one particular goal: amazing you by offering you a romantic and home-like setting. What’s more, flats with balconies are available; they dominate the fancy and historical neighborhood of the Golden Triangle of Paris (“Triangle d’Or”), thus giving you an opportunity to admire Paris’s most beautiful monuments, like the Eiffel Tower, by night.
Nonetheless, the hotel’s strength lies in the number of suites it provides: 11 types of suites, all different and unique. The Royal Suite, for example, is equipped with 18th-century style furniture, and it is an elegant French Renaissance room. Famous cabinetmaker Boulle’s dressers are displayed in the suite, leading towards a marvelous living room where you will dine and relax. The French windows open onto a private balcony.
The staff is very accommodating and competent. One of the hotel’s biggest assets is its restaurant, Le Cinq (“Five”). It won three Michelin stars; the dining room opens onto the inner marbled courtyard through its French windows. The setting and the ambiance are even better, thanks to the restaurant menu. The meals are inspired by both traditional French cuisine and new gastronomic trends.
The hotel also includes a spa and a sauna: the founders put an emphasis on relaxation and well-being! You can go there as a couple because the spa and the sauna are made for two. The environment there is more modern than the rest of the establishment.

At the heart of the Marais quarter, on the renowned Place des Vosges, the Pavillon de la Reine illuminates the whole neighborhood. The place is ideal if you want to go for a walk and discover one of Paris’s most beautiful areas, somewhere in between the Place de la Bastille and the Île de la Cité. However, the Marais is just an appetizer compared to the hotel we’re about to describe. Indeed, the Pavillon is a dream institution in the purest French tradition, a peaceful haven in the heart of the capital, the former house of Anne of Austria, queen of France in the 17th century and mother of King Louis XIV.
Behind the hotel’s refined façade, one can penetrate a poetic world. Conceived by interior designer Didier Benderli, the whole environment stands as a compromise between tradition and modernity. Sometimes you feel like you’re in a Parisian salon, where the nobility used to gather. The place is quiet, and the silence is golden! This is what the staff is looking for, so that you can spend this unique moment together in complete peace.
The 4-star hotel has 54 rooms. The 17th-century influence is everywhere, alternating between modern decorations and much more traditional ornaments. Nevertheless, the rooms are far from being out-of-date or old-fashioned, because the establishment wishes to display “French sophistication.” In addition to the rooms, the Pavillon de la Reine provides suites decorated with the colors of Queen Anne of Austria and 19th-century writer Victor Hugo, two major figures of the Marais history.
A modern spa awaits you, extending on a 250 square meters wide surface (and even more). The spa comprises a fitness center, a hot tub, and a steam bath; you will also be offered body and face beauty services, which will enhance the feeling of relaxation and help you make the most of your stay. In an up-to-date and Zen spirit, you will enjoy your holiday and take some rest, thanks to the calming bubbling of the running water and the play of light.

Those of you who love change will be happy to discover such a singular place. The architecture of the building is much more original than the bigger part of more “classic” Parisian hotels. Indeed, the hotel is made of a metal structure, of raw materials and brick walls, and it is ornamented with huge windowpanes. The hotel looks like a penthouse; the whole place is very “rock”-like. However, it is still very comfortable.
The rooms all provide the best services: a present-day decoration and wide bathrooms. There is a sauna and a fitness room, too. This recent piece of equipment will give you the opportunity to loosen up and to relax with your partner and enjoy your holiday!

You’ll find rooms inspired by singer Edith Piaf and boxer Marcel Cerdan’s love affair, along with other rooms dedicated to writer Victor Hugo and his muse Juliette Drouet. They are invitations to dream and travel, the place’s best asset!

The hotel La Tamise (in English, the Thames) stands in the center of the town in a stylish shrine, rue d’Alger, in the 1st district, a few blocks away from the base of the fashion and creation flagship. Indeed, the hotel used to host great figures of the fashion industry, like costume designer Madame Grès models and internationally famous fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier. This used to be a mansion house, a property of the French noble family de Noailles, built in the 19th century. It was entirely renovated. Thus, the hotel owners have kept several elements of the time and have them restored so as to revive the hotel’s history nowadays. The interior designer Cybèle Paluel-Marmont succeeded in recapturing a sophisticated atmosphere and exquisite aesthetics.

Movie posters and filmmakers’ portraits hang on the walls; the aficionados will be enchanted! Every morning, you will savor a full and varied buffet breakfast under the big canopy, or even inside your bed if you desire!
The first floor was inspired by legendary movie composer Ennio Morricone. The setting is monochromatic and recalls a piano keyboard; on the other hand, the wallpaper is reminiscent of a musical score. But this is not the highlight of the show: the bedpost comprises headphones so that you can listen to the Western movie master’s concerts. And so it goes: if you climb up the stairs until the last floor, you’ll enter a room created as a tribute for French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo. The bed is covered in red velvet pillows embroidered with Cannes film festival Palme d’Or.
This love for cinema is also present in the bar, space which is lit by its huge canopy. The decoration echoes a movie set, and mirrored tables are mounted on tripods like actual cameras. You and your partner will sip your cocktails there and you can even keep on having a good time in the armchairs that were conceived by Philippe Maidenberg for Claude Lelouche himself.
