I wonder if my husband knew when he married me that I would be completely living up to the surname he so graciously donated. Had he guessed, I think he might have suggested I keep my own. It’s time for another Paris related travel post and this is all about the hotel I stayed in – Hotel Adele & Jules. I’ve already given you a good look at this Parisien hotel in a previous outfit post, but I promised you a separate post and I think it’s about time I delivered. The hotel has so many things going for it that I’m almost at a loss as to where to begin. First of all, this is a 4-star boutique hotel located within the Opera District. This means you can practically walk to most places which is what we did.
My first impression upon entering this hotel was that I had stumbled into this artsy, posh place that must belong to someone I know. It felt really welcoming, I immediately plunged myself on the sofa without a care for propriety as though I was visiting a loved relative or friend.
Rather than writing out more long walls of text, I’ve made a list of the things I loved about this hotel below.
- Adele & Jules is located in a quiet pedestrian road
- This is so lovely – no cars or vans parking right outside your bedroom window at night. Taxis can drop you off right at the corner but just outside the hotel – it’s all peaceful.
- The room had Angelina chocolates waiting for me on the desk – definitely made my day.
- Only 60 rooms – The large hotels still have their charm but I’ve really started to favour boutique hotels, they feel so much more personal, so much more like a home away from home.
- Designed by renowned interior designer Stéphane Poux — the interiors are an artist’s dream – there’s so much creativity – clashing colours, uncoordinated features that somehow seem coordinated, combinations of different themes ….
- Wonderful, hospitable staff that manage to remember your name each and every time.
- GreatLovely lounge area with moody lighting and a wonderful, eclectic mix of different art and interior details
- High tea served daily between 4pm – 6 pm free of charge
- Delicious breakfast that had a varied range consisting of almost everything you could think of – from fruit to croissants to bread to bacon and even mini Nutella jars.
- Spacious, well-lit room with high-quality textiles and a lovely comfy bed.
- Up and coming neighbourhood with great restaurants around
- Great WIFI connection
- Coffee machine in the room
- French windows – great photo opportunities
We really enjoyed our stay here and exploring the neighbourhood around it. Hope to be back sometime soon.
