Top 25 Cool and Unusual Hotels in Paris 2023

Famed for its iconic architecture, romantic ambiance, and centuries of artistic achievement, Paris is easily one of the world’s most cherished cities. The French capital is often always everything a visitor wants it to be and amid the hustle and bustle of modern city life, you can still spot typical Parisian stereotypes of handsome poets and elegant fashionistas.

From Cubism to Post-Impressionism and everything in between, Paris is at the forefront of many art and design movements and this is reflected in its collection of truly beautiful boutique and design hotels.

From our team’s many stays over the years, here are our collective favourite cool, creative, and unique hotels in Paris (in no particular order) that are not just for Valentine’s day…

1. Off Paris Seine – a hip and very Instagrammable floating modern boat hotel perfect for partying Millenials and Gen Zs

Hippest hotels in Paris

An ultra-chic 4-star hotel/boat hybrid that is currently making waves in Paris. Moored on the beautiful Seine River on the newly trendy Left Bank (just a 4 minutes’ walk from Austerlitz metro/RER station and 2 km from Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris) the city’s latest designer hotel offering is the French capital’s first floating hotel and this being Paris they’ve gone all out.

Actually, the boat is more like a catamaran and the highly-rated Off Paris Seine has two rows rooms stacked over two levels but connected by a narrow stretch of a sky-lit communal space complete with a swimming pool, a bar and a sun deck adorned by lounge chairs. The room decor is equally as fancy with modern minimalist decor, free WiFi, and flat-screen TVs.

Opt for a suite and expect features like in-room soaking tubs or four-poster beds. All rooms at this very cool Parisian hotel offer either gorgeous river or docks views (of course)!

Definitely cooler than your average mid-range accommodation, the highly-rated Mama Shelter is quickly becoming one of the most popular unique hotels in Paris. Catering to a hip and fun-loving crowd, this hotel would appeal to anyone who appreciates the quirkier side of life.

Located only a stone’s throw from both a cool music venue and the Alexandre Dumas Metro Station (which provides easy access to the beautiful Montmartre district and also the rest of Paris) we also loved the onsite gift shop, pizzeria, and fab cocktail bar!

The funky Paris abode was designed by the acclaimed industrial modern designer Philippe Starck, so expect plenty of trendy details – elevators papered with trivia, superhero masks placed playfully in every room, walls of exposed concrete and super hip iMac televisions placed in every room.

We personally think you’ll love the design here but even if the decor isn’t quite to your taste, the great room rates and accessible location still make this an excellent choice for a very cool accommodation option in Paris!

A cake-themed room you say? Fantastic! This 4-star exceptionally rated Paris gem is kitsch and conceptual from the floorboards to rafters so it may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it sure was mine. Vice Versa Hotel‘s seven floors are themed each representing one of the seven deadly sins, I stayed with the gluttons and my bed was a cupcake and my lamps were teapots – happy days indeed!

The 15th arr. location is also pretty fabulous, only a short walk from Convention Metro Station which will take you directly to the Champs Elysées – a great choice for romancemonuments and city walks.

Wandering around the communal spaces and corridors of this deliciously quirky Paris hotel I could see snatches of each sin…greed heavily revolved around banknotes, anger around red black and revolvers, and lust was like immersing yourself inside a racy corset!

The unique pristine pure white lounge has to be seen to be believed and the friendly staff and the general tongue-in-cheek but relaxed atmosphere also add to the experience. A novel and very hip hotel in Paris which cannot fail to inject a bit of fun into your stay!

This is a cool little Paris boutique hotel in the bohemian and artist-haunt area of Montparnasse (only a 10-minute walk from Montparnasse Train Station which easily connects you to the rest of the city). Stylish and eclectic, the lobby at the highly-rated Hotel Atelier Montparnasse is instantly cosy and welcoming with worn leather sofas, exposed brickwork, hardwood floors, and a well-stocked communal bookshelf.

Rooms range from the romantic to the contemporary minimalist and I stayed in a double room which was elegant and comfortable with plenty of cool and unusual features – the décor, for example, was a hat tip to the early 1900s with soft fabrics in lush colours and an amazing Italian shower.

It was light and bright and clean, the price was completely reasonable and the buffet breakfast – which was filled with freshly-baked French bread and pastries – was tasty too, plenty of reasons to love this place!

The rooms at this swanky Paris stay are all unique and mine was stylish, not overly large but plenty of space for me, art on the walls and a cool tiled wet room and oval bathtub, a little coffee machine and a super comfy bed. Although my absolute favourite thing had to be the friendly courtyard chickens who provide fresh eggs for the hotel’s delicious breakfast – delightful!

It’s also located only a block away from the Arts et Métiers metro station for easy access to the rest of the city, a few streets north of the Centre Pompidou and is only 3 km from the Louvre.

Every room has full connect-ability regardless of whether you’re an Apple or an Android kind of gal and I thoroughly enjoyed playing my music through the cool speakers whilst admiring the fab childlike paintings on my wall.

I even like the exterior of the building with its classic blue and white facade. It’s a place I definitely felt hipper when I left than I did when I arrived!

  1. What would Paris, France be without having some great hotels to accommodate its guests? You can definitely see the passion put into these hotels. There is a great blend of industry (and some “futuristic industry”) and romance in the hotel themes. It’s very cool because France is really well known for both of those things, so to see them reflected in the art of the rooms is just really awesome. One day I will visit France, and likely will check into one of these rooms as well!

  2. I stayed in One by the Five last Valentines day and though it was extremely pricey it was quite the experience. Great service and out of this world rooms!
