In the shadows of the Champs Elysee and tucked between the super hip Avenue Foch, the Palais des Congres and the Arc de Triumph.
The Good Stuff
If you love good design and drool over Wallpaper, then you’ll simply dig this place. The room we stayed in was an Executive room, the bedroom area was cosy but the real high point here was the bathroom, tucked behind bed and open plan, this was a real treat. After all, no one craves normal when they visit a hotel. The narrow corridors work well to create quite a cosy and intimate feel. The spa is fantastic, and you wouldn’t expect one in a boutique hotel this size. Try your best to snag a room with a terrace, there’s no people watching like Paris people watching. The business centre is also good for those who need to creep off to take care of the business.
The 36 rooms spread over six floors offer deep colours, great theatre and elegant grandeur. A perfect place to crash, but the evening’s entertainment should be sought elsewhere. There is something majestic about Mon Hotel, but with an edge and just a smidgen of hip boudoir. I love the convergence of old and new school Paris here. At night there’s a mood to it that is quite captivating and intriguing. This is the perfect spot for a little business and a little pleasure.
Inside the hotel – 7/10
Sleek, modern and hip. Effortlessly ticks all the boxes for your base of operations.
Outside the hotel – 9/10
You’re a hop, skip and a jump away from the action in Saint Germain, Hotel Costes and, as is always the case in Paris, the new Starck restaurant!
