Le Pavillon de la Reine, Paris

Le Pavillon de la Reine

Paris, France

OUR RATING: First Class

Covered in vibrant creeping vines and dating back to the 16th century, Le Pavillon de la Reine was originally built as a private family home. This stately property is situated just steps from the fashionable Place des Vosges in the heart of the Marais district and evokes a sense of a countryside retreat right in the heart of Paris. The salon, decorated with rich oranges and reds is both inviting and elegant with its open fireplaces, antique furniture and reading areas. Rooms here are equally charming with views of the property’s courtyards or traditional Parisian streets, and vary from traditional in style with antique furniture and distinctive wallpaper, to more contemporary with modern furnishings. In addition to its unique setting, this property also has a spa, and offers complimentary bicycles to guests for use during their stay.

OUR OPINION:

We love this property for its enviable location right off the stylish Place des Vosges in the Marais and because it feels like a small country retreat, with a relaxing spa, almost out of place in the heart of a big city.

Rooms

Rooms here have all been individually appointed in a classically elegant style with a palette of rich tones. Some have been designed in a traditional manner with large mirrors, antique furniture, exposed beams, and distinctive wallpaper or toile de jouy fabric on the walls, while others are more contemporary. Views are of the hotel’s courtyards or traditional Parisian streets. Giving a nod to Parisian history, higher category rooms such as the Suite de la Reine and the Suite Victor Hugo feature literary and historical influences. Conveniences such as air conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi come as standard in each of the rooms.

Location

Le Pavillon de la Reine is well-situated just steps away from the picturesque Place des Vosges in the Marais, a charming area of atmospheric streets filled with museums, art galleries, designer boutiques and high-end delicatessens. Despite its proximity to the busy Place des Vosges, it evokes a sense of seclusion with the air of a country manor right in the heart of Paris.

Food and drink

Evoking the feeling of a private library with open stone fireplaces, reading areas and antique furniture, the salon serves breakfast and afternoon tea, and also features an honesty bar where you can enjoy a glass of champagne. Although the hotel does not have its own restaurant, for dinner you can choose from a variety of fantastic dining options in the area.

Facilities and activities

The spa here comes complete with a gym, Jacuzzi, steam bath and treatment rooms where you can choose from a variety of relaxing and soothing services.
