My daughter and I recently took a trip to Paris and we stayed in the best boutique hotel – La Maison Favart. It is an old house in the Opera District and it has been converted with such attention to detail and drama. The hotel itself tells the story of Charles Simon and Justine Favart Ronceray, the famous couple at the heart of the Opera Comique heyday in the 18th century. As is custom in the boutique hotel world, each room is unique – but this place really goes above and beyond.

The hotel includes a lovely parlour, the most beautiful little café (with a complimentary rotating selection of desserts served each afternoon at 4pm – a must have for my 9 year old daughter), amazing staff who were able to get us reservations at truly local restaurants, and is in a fantastic location – walking distance or just a very short cab ride to almost anything in central Paris. Oh yes, and a lovely little swimming pool located in the basement – a big, yet welcome surprise.

We were able to get a good rate on the room (as we booked early) and it really added to the experience and romanticism of Paris. I would definitely stay there again.  They also have a signature scent candle that we purchased to take home and every time we light it we’re taken back to that wonderful trip!!!”
