Les Jardins du Marais, Paris

Les Jardins du Marais

A tranquil hotel in the fashionable Marais district, Les Jardins du Marais is set away from the bustle of the streets but just a short walk from the historic Place des Vosges and the impressive Picasso Museum. The four buildings that make up the hotel encircle one long central courtyard lined with elegant tables, white umbrellas and small gardens.

The contemporary hotel bar features bold purple velvets and quirky furniture, though you can chose to have breakfast or an evening drink outside in the courtyard in good weather. There are also plenty of delightful restaurants for the evening within walking distance of the hotel in the lively Marais district.

The elegant rooms offer all modern amenities, from flat-screen TVs to free Wi-Fi, with the addition of a special smartphone for each room, allowing guests to remain connected to the internet while walking around the city, or to call home to friends and family at no additional cost. There is also a modern gym and a chic spa where guests can receive treatment in peaceful rooms with exposed masonry.

Rooms

Rooms are simple but bright with high ceilings and windows, crisp white linens and contrasting prints on the soft furnishings. All room categories feature flat-screen TVs, air conditioning and free Wi-Fi as well as marble bathrooms, though only the highest room categories have a separate bath and shower.

Location

The Marais neighborhood is a fashionable district of Paris filled with restaurants, bars and plenty of designer boutiques. Close by you can find the delightful Picasso Museum, as well as Victor Hugo’s house on Place des Vosges, and the French Holocaust memorial. There is also a metro stop just a minute away for easy access to the rest of the city.

Food and drink

There is no restaurant on site, though there is a trendy cocktail bar with an extensive menu of French wines, sparkling champagne and signature cocktails. You can sit indoors in the contemporary bar or take a seat in the shade outdoor under one of the large white umbrellas in the courtyard. There are also countless restaurants and cafes, to suit all budgets, within walking distance of the hotel.

Facilities and activities

The hotel offers a sleek spa set in peaceful rooms that make a feature of the exposed stonework of the historic building. There is also a gym but the highlight of the hotel, however, is its expansive inner courtyard, featuring one of the largest private gardens in Paris. Among the trees and flowers are hidden nooks with sofas and chairs, the perfect place to relax with a glass of champagne.

Accessibility

The hotel offers disabled access as well as rooms adapted for those with disabilities.

Our opinion

We like this hotel for its long cobbled interior courtyard, quiet location and proximity to one of Paris’s best loved squares, the Place des Vosges in the fashionable Marais district. Rooms are contemporary and simple, but bright and comfortable.
