So, when it comes to deciding where to stay in Paris, the choice is simple. If you want the perfect balance between luxury and relaxation, you’ve got to check out Hôtel Thérèse in Paris. Designed with incredible attention to detail, this hotel is like stepping into a dream.

Here’s my experience staying at Hôtel Thérèse in Paris!

About Hôtel Thérèse

Hotel Therese Paris foyer

Hôtel Thérèse has just forty rooms, accommodating guests visiting for both short and long stays. While it’s definitely a luxury spot, it doesn’t have the pretentious air that you might find elsewhere. The staff are friendly, helpful, efficient and eager to ensure your stay is enjoyable.

Hôtel Thérèse offers free Wi-Fi, chauffeured airport transfers, buffet breakfast, in-room gym set-up (upon request), and a bar which includes a great choice of wine and cocktails. Each of the forty rooms has its own stunning decor and character of a genuine home.

This owner-run boutique hotel has been meticulously decorated by Jean-Louis Deniot, striking a perfect balance between good taste and relaxation, attentiveness, welcoming smiles, know-how and bright hospitality. Every little luxury is yours to be enjoyed.

Hôtel Thérèse’s unique experience is due to know-how that has been passed on down the generations of the de Lattre family.

Located in the heart of Paris, Hotel Thérèse has great public transit service and is easy to reach from the city’s airports and train stations.

I took the RER B train from Charles de Gaulle airport, changing at Châtelet station for Line 14 for Pyramides. From there it was only a three-minute walk to the hotel. Easy! A one-way ticket will cost €10.

The Room

The hotel is a maze of charming hallways and recesses that lead to your room.

Space in Paris is limited so you’ll be hard-pressed to find a hotel room with a queen size bed like this one. Ensuring no detail goes untouched, Hôtel Thérèse has a large and cosy bed in each room.

The soothing shades of its furnishings make it the idyllic haven away from the busy city. Thanks to its location, you won’t hear a peep outside as you enjoy a good nights rest.

The Location

Hôtel Thérèse is located on the doorstep of Palais Royal and the Comédie Française quarter, a five-minute walk from the Louvre and the Tuileries Gardens.

In this vibrant area are many of the city’s best-known theatres, museums and gardens.

Just around the corner is Rue Saint Honoré, a popular shopping strip leading you to the main department stores.

Breakfast and Bar

At Hôtel Thérèse breakfast can either be served to your room or enjoyed in a beautiful room on the lower floor. Your day starts with a breakfast that can range from a quick bite of fruit to a full, cooked breakfast.

One aspect Hôtel Thérèse that I really liked is that there is both is complimentary tea and coffee in the afternoons and cocktails in the lounge in the evenings.

What could be more French than having a croissant for breakfast? ? Except, croissants aren’t actually French, they are an Austrian invention! ? ?? ••• More specifically, croissants are Viennese and were created in celebration of the Habsburgs’ defeat of the Ottoman empire at the Battle of Vienna in 1683. •• And the shape? The croissant’s famous crescent shape was actually inspired by the Ottoman flag. Rumour has it that Marie Antoinette, who was born in Vienna, introduced the croissant to Paris in 1770 before the French Revolution, but croissants only appeared in a widespread way in France in the mid-19th century, the first description of a Viennese baker in Paris being in 1838. •• Bon appétit! •• @hotel_therese #hoteltherese

In My Opinion

Two nights at Hôtel Thérèse provided me with enough time to experience everything in the hotel. I arrived Friday afternoon and left the around midday just after lunch on Sunday.

I stayed in Hôtel Thérèse eleven years ago on my first European trip and it left such a lasting impression that I had to go back. It’s cosy, elegant, and charming. This place is the real deal.

Hôtel Thérèse is literally the most beautiful boutique hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The breakfast, staff and accommodation truly are next level amazing. If you’re heading to Paris, be sure to consider staying at Hôtel Thérèse.
