NYC meets Parisian Art Nouveau in the heart of Les Faubourgs.
The second hotel by Adrien Gloaguen (who also owns the cute Hotel Paradis) Le Panache took its inspiration from another, more famous corner building in mind: NYC’s Flatiron. The clever use of art nouveau geometric lines and mirrors throughout the hotel help deal with the awkward shape of the building and tight angles in some of its 36 rooms. We love the old skool Parisian feel and the glam wrought iron headboards in the guest rooms that are a signature of the hotel.
Located in the 9th arrondissement in a lively neighbourhood, traditionally the home of theatres, auction houses, cabarets (Les Folie Bergeres are around the corner), late night eateries and department stores, l’Hotel Panache channels the spirit of the real, glamourously unglamorous Paris. The metro is on your doorstep but you can walk everywhere too – from Le Louvre to Rue des Martyrs. It’s a great location!
What We Love
We love that it is affordable!
Also there’s plenty of great eating options nearby but interestingly the Panache has teamed up for their own restaurant with the team behind Racines – another HWL’s favourite – so definitely worth trying as you can be sure they will serve only the the best local produces.
Some rooms are on the small end and some can lack a view – request a room with balcony if possible as these get more light.
If you are travelling with small children, so mention it upon booking, as they may bring a teepee into your room!
