Stay like a local at Hotel Parister in Paris

Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world. Often called the city of light or La Ville–Lumière due to the city being the center of education and progressive ideas during the Age of Enlightenment. It was also one of the first cities to install lighting in the street. Most of us might think of Paris as city of love from what we’ve read in literature and seen on film and television.

When I was planning my trip to Paris, I asked a friend of mine in Paris to send a list of hotels that are “on brand” for me and Hotel Parister was on the top of his list and he actually told me this is a hotel he would actually pay to stay as a local, and that is all I needed to hear!

The Hotel

The hotel’s mission is to provide guests with the experience of staying like a local. It is designed for active people, who enjoy daydreaming and having fun... basically everyone who enjoys life's true pleasures of body and soul. From an actual key to the open-air restaurant patio to your very own private terrace overlooking Parisian rooftops, it is everything you would want for a true partisan getaway.


The Neighborhood

The Parister hotel sits on this calm and quiet street hidden in the middle of the city.

Between Montmartre and the small shops in the Pigalle neighborhood in the North, the Galeries Lafayette and the Drouot auction rooms in the West; and the Vivienne and Palais Royal neighborhoods.

I find the location extremely convenient for everything I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to take photos at the Palais Royal and the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette, so this couldn’t have been a better location.

The Room

I stayed in the Deluxe Room with Terrace. The moment you step into the room it feels as if you’ve walked onto the set of Mad Men with its sleek Art Deco design. The bathroom is impeccably dressed with light teal tiles. It’s really a photographer’s dream. The private terrace is larger than I expected. If you have a chance to book a suite with a terrace, do it! They also have other rooms that feels like an actual home or a loft. Head over to their website to explore more.

Amenities

A stunning 24-hour indoor swimming poor. This is definitely a huge selling point for the hotel. The gym is on the smaller side, but they host classes here for guests.

Restaurant/bar

Open air patio get very crowded around dinner time till it closes. Very local crowd.

Final thoughts

If you want to stay like a local with the amenities and the service of a 5 star hotel, this is your spot. The staff was personable, attentive, and professional. There are many hotels in Paris and often times you get great service from luxury hotels but they come off insincerely, but not here. I really had a great time talking to the staff here. it’s very small team, but everyone absolutely loves the property and what they do here. I highly recommend checking this place out if you’re looking to experience Paris like a local, not a like a tourist. I can’t wait to come back here in the future!
