This spring promises to be an exciting time to visit Paris. After two years of lockdown and reopening, or what was known here as 'confinement' and 'déconfinement', there is a real buzz in the air, and plenty of culture to soak up, food to be eaten and wine to be drunk. Any one of these hotels will provide a brilliant base for your next trip, with something to suit everyone. From an upmarket hostel near one of the city’s most beautiful parks, to Paris’s latest ultra-luxury opening on the swish Avenue George V – and even a new boutique hotel that will let you live like a Parisian artist for a weekend.

Hotel des Academies et des Arts

Did you ever dream of moving to Paris and becoming a painter? This dinky boutique hotel in the historic and refined Montparnasse district gives you just that opportunity. Located opposite the Grande Chaumière art school, the hotel offers studios, easels and art supplies for hotel guests and visiting artists, as well as short courses. Artistic touches continue into the rooms, where whitewashed walls and pared-back furnishings contrast with bold artworks hung and sometimes painted straight onto the walls.

How to do it: Doubles from £150 (00 331 4326 6644; hoteldesacademies.fr).

Grand Hotel du Palais Royal

Love it or loathe it, Netflix’s Emily in Paris has turned the world’s attention to theFrench capital, as it continues into its second season. Fans may recognise this elegant and refined five-star boutique as the neighbour of the office of Savoir, the fictional luxury agency on Place de Valois, where Emily works. It offers comfort, slick design courtesy of Pierre-Yves Rochon, and attentive service – as well as a modern take on French classics in Le Lulli restaurant. It’s located in the heart of Paris, next to the secluded splendour of the Palais Royal gardens.

Bulgari

Connoisseurs of la dolce vita are in for a treat with Bulgari’s first hotel in France. The Italian jewellery house, now owned by French luxury giant LVMH, puts the emphasis on retreat and relaxation, with a vast subterranean pool and spa area featuring a mosaic-lined whirlpool tub and bespoke spa treatments. Fine dining comes from Michelin-decorated Italian chef Niko Romito, offering a lighter Italian spin on indulgent hotel fare with some suitably bling touches, such as the gold-leaf-covered chocolate pudding. Despite the flashiness of the brand, the feel is low-key and welcoming – a fine retreat fit for a visconte (with a price tag to match).

How to do it: Doubles from £ 1,168 (00 331 8172 1000; bulgarihotels.com).

Soho House

Though the London-founded members’ club has spread across the world, it has taken a while for Soho House to cross the Channel – 25 years, to be precise. The much-anticipated Paris property opened in late 2021 and has quickly become a favourite haunt of local arty and creative types. Night owls will appreciate the location in the heart of trendy South Pigalle, the former red-light district where the Moulin Rouge and hipster dive bars share a pavement. French writer and artist Jean Cocteau grew up in the building, and the design leans on his Années Folles heyday – there is even an underground cabaret.

How to do it: Doubles from £360 for non-members (00 331 8824 0500; sohohouse.com).

Adele & Jules

Located in a tucked-away, gated cul-de-sac behind busy Grands Boulevards, this unusual hotel – in two buildings two doors apart – is a quiet and cosy base from which to explore the Right Bank, equidistant between the Louvre and Tuileries and bustling Pigalle. Expect friendly, helpful service and well-appointed, comfortable rooms. The hotel has a low-key contemporary look, with an emphasis on comfort and homeliness in the form of warm colours, comfortable furnishings and soft lighting. The lobby/breakfast area (identical in both buildings) features a well-stocked bookshelf and comfortable sofa, and Paris-themed contemporary artwork.

Hotel des Grandes Écoles

This family-run hotel offers old-fashioned French countryside-style hospitality in the heart of Paris’s buzzy and central Latin Quarter; unusual in a city increasingly dominated by chic new openings with hipster design credentials. The shutter-adorned buildings create a pretty picture, set around a cobbled courtyard featuring climbing plants, birds and a lovingly tended garden. Inside, parquet floors blend with patterned rugs, ornaments, trinkets, books and family photos; the breakfast room is dotted with round tables decorated with lace tablecloths and there are also parasol-covered tables in the attractive courtyard.

This “poshtel” – located in Paris’s lively 10th arrondissement – is often booked out, and for good reason: it offers playful design, friendly service and an excellent summer roof terrace. Between a hotel and a hostel, in addition to dorms it offers double and twin rooms tastefully decorated with crisp white bedding; some have pretty terraces with views across the Paris rooftops, and even hammocks. The hotel offers bikes to rent, while guests can book walking tours and other excursions through reception. The main restaurant offers a varied menu of pub-style food, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients where possible, and continental breakfast in the morning.

HOY Paris

Time stands still at this urban sanctuary with South American roots. Reset and recharge with the holistic approach of on-site wellbeing experts and delectable, honest fare that makes you feel connected to the core of the Earth with every mouthful. HOY sits on the main artery of the buzzy south Pigalle neighbourhood, among fashionable cafés, bakeries, bars, restaurants and boutiques. The ground-floor flower shop (selling locally sourced dried bouquets) flows into the hotel bar where the counter doubles up as the reception desk. This leads into the restaurant, and there’s a roomy yoga studio behind reception. The 22 rooms have Parisian parquet floors, mouldings and Juliet windows.

Caron de Beaumarchais

This quirky little independent hotel, themed around Beaumarchais’s The Marriage of Figaro, is packed to the wooden beams with period detail and charm. Guests can expect a good old-fashioned welcome, with all the heart of the Marais district on the doorstep. Attention to period detail carries on into the rooms (10 of the 19 of which have bathtubs) with their fine fabrics, chandeliers and painstakingly chosen antique pieces. Pets are welcome – in fact, the owner’s dog is a regular presence and features on the hotel’s Facebook page.

Cheval Blanc

Luxury group LVMH Hospitality has opened its first urban Maison in the emblematic La Samaritaine building in the 1st arrondissement. The highly anticipated addition to the Paris hotel scene offers colour-filled interiors with 72 rooms, four restaurants, a Dior Spa and the longest swimming pool in Paris. Details abound, from the piping hot bubble bath that awaits you on return from dinner to the glass of cucumber and mint water encased in soft leather which is placed by your poolside lounger as you swim. Meanwhile, Plénitude is the new restaurant of Chef Arnaud Donckele, who garnered three Michelin stars at La Vague d’Or in Cheval Blanc’s St Tropez hotel.
