Is this Paris's best-kept hotel secret?

Paris is among the most elegant, sophisticated cities on the planet and one hotel that perfectly fits that vibe is Pavillon de la Reine; a very chic, ivy-draped small hotel hidden away just off one of the most beautiful squares in the French city, the Place des Vosges.


This boutique hotel is popular with movie stars and models; privately owned and family-run, it offers style, charm and elegance and multilingual staff for whom nothing is too much trouble.

Part of the Small Luxury Hotels group, all of the hotel's 54 rooms and suites are individually decorated and feature a mix of antique furnishings and modern facilities.


Pavillon de la Reine sits in a gracious 17th-century building tucked away from the restaurants and shops of the Place des Vosges, which was built in 1612 by King Henry IV of France. 

A private courtyard garden with modern sculptures is the perfect spot for an aperitif.
The hotel is brilliantly situated with the Marais district among the city's most vibrant and the Chemin Vert and Saint-Paul Metro stations both just a short stroll away.
The surrounding streets combine old-world charm and modern-day creativity – with cobblestone streets, hidden courtyards and hip wine bars side by side.
The Pavillon de la Reine is just a short stroll from the Musée Picasso, the Musée Carnavalet, Place de la Bastille and the lively shopping quarter on the rue des Francs-Bourgeois.

This is a hotel for those happy to entertain themselves; perhaps ask for one of the hotel's test tube sets of wines from the finest regions of France, or enjoy a sauna or treatment at the Carita Spa.
All rooms feature free wi-fi, air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs with international channels, Molton Brown bathroom amenities, a turndown service, bathrobe and slippers, complimentary bottles of water, iPod docking systems, safes and mini bars.
Breakfasts are served in one of two delightful lounge/libraries with an a la carte selection along with buffet choices. And guests can also enjoy afternoon tea or a late night glass of Champagne from the Honesty Bar.

Yes, an Honesty Bar. The Pavillon de la Reine is so stylish that no one would dream of helping themselves to a free drink.
John Malkovich, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Zoe Saldana are regulars and the hotel often features in glossy magazines like Conde Nast Traveler. Style with a capital S.
