For a stay in Paris, a romantic night, a pajama party with your BFF, or simply the pleasure of disconnecting solo, these new hotels have made us want to reserve a room in no time.
The spirit: Minimalism enthusiasts, this is not for you! The latest (big) venture of Moussié + Sophie Richard, who also brought us the Hotel Providence, L'Eldorado, a historic hotel in Batignolles, has undergone a major facelift and has become the most sought-after spot of the summer. People rush from all over Paris to discover its new terrace restaurant shaded by palm trees (and even an apricot tree!), while the characterful rooms offer a cozy vision of Parisian love. Vintage rattan furniture, sublime velvety tapestries on the walls, terraces, and windows overlooking the treetops for a wake-up call to the song of birds... It's the perfect blend of countryside charm and Parisian extravagance.
The added plus: Every day for lunch and dinner, L'Eldorado's restaurant takes over the exceptionally beautiful shaded garden, a real gem in the neighborhood. We loved dipping asparagus and courgettes in tempura into a delightful shiso sauce (€12), indulging in mimosa eggs with tarragon and parsley (€11), twirling spaghetti with lemon and bottarga in a spoon (€26). Other highlights include the club sandwich (€19) and the Basque tuna salad with peppers, broad beans, and artichokes (€28), not to forget the extraordinary Aviation cocktail with gin, lemon juice, and violet liqueur (€15), which might be more interesting than dessert.
L’Eldorado, 18 rue des Dames, Paris 17th. +33 1 45 22 35 21. Rooms starting from €350. Restaurant open daily for lunch and dinner.

The spirit: You'll feel like you're in a Wes Anderson movie. Rounded lines, mix & match prints, pastel colors, and mismatched tiles define the signature of the Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (La Plage Parisienne, Pink Mamma), responsible for the 60s-inspired decor of La Fantaisie, near Grands Boulevards, which you'll undoubtedly want to replicate at home. Here are the keywords: 63 rooms and 10 dreamy suites (all with unique details), a Holidermie spa, a serene garden with REAL grass, and a fantastic rooftop for toasting either on the terrace or around the extraordinary bar (perfect for a second date). It's hard to imagine a more complete experience!
The added plus: On the ground level, facing the garden, you'll find Golden Poppy, the eco-conscious restaurant led by the ultra-cool, triple Michelin-starred chef Dominique Crenn, who has established herself in San Francisco and whose plant-based signature fits perfectly with the decor. The menu invites you on a culinary journey featuring seafood delights, including our favorites such as a sexy sea bass ceviche with pea milk and leche de tigre (€24), a bottarga flan (€18), a matured red tuna tartare (€18), and crispy rice with smoked anchovies (€24), not to mention leaving room for the (dangerous!) coconut and pineapple fritters for dessert (€17).
La Fantaisie, 24 rue Cadet, Paris 9th. +33 1 55 07 85 07. Rooms starting from €550. Rooftop "Le Bar sur le Toit" open from 5 pm to midnight, Wednesday to Sunday. Golden Poppy open for dinner only, Wednesday to Sunday.

The spirit: The lobby and oversized lounge of Solly, a true 4-star hotel, take on the dreamy ambiance of a Haussmann-style apartment with ivory bouclé or orange velvet armchairs and sofas, brass pendants, herringbone parquet, large carpets, and cane chairs. It's the perfect place to read a newspaper or get some work done before discovering your lovely room among the 51 spread over 8 floors, all adorned with retro frames (insects, portraits, cavalry...) contrasting with the charming decor and marble bathrooms. Just opened, this little brother of Bordeaux's Marty Hotel promises the opportunity to order a cheese and charcuterie board to share, filled with products sourced from local artisans.
The added plus: In many rooms, even the smallest ones, you'll enjoy a breathtaking view of the magnificent Square Emile Chautemps and its Wallace fountain, with the extraordinary Gaîté Lyrique in the background. Each room has its advantage over another, from the mansard rooms on the 8th floor offering an extraordinary panorama of Paris to the balconies on the 6th and 7th floors, perfect for ordering room service aperitifs. Our favorite? Room 75, with its bathtub and small corner that give a true cocooning feeling.
