In the heart of East Paris, a few steps from the Marais, Beaubourg and from the Canal St-Martin and the Faubourgs, the Hotel Providence is the new address everyone is talking about. After the wonderful Brasserie Barbés, Sophie Richard, Pierre and Elodie Moussie start in the hotel business and we’re totally on board.
In this 1850’s building, everything is cosy, trendy and a little bit old-fashioned. The 18 rooms, all different, mix velvet, thrifted furniture, moldings, Hungary parquet floors, marble mosaic and foot bathtubs. Here, toiletries are organic, made in France and created exclusively by Ramadane Touhami, USB ports have replaced classic plugs and televisions are Mac screens, more discrete. In each room there is a bar with ice-makers, beech crates and Rennotte gallery to feel « just-like-home » (only better). For the laziest ones, the barman can come and make your cocktails in your rooms. « So Chic ».
On the ground-floor of this particular house, there is a bar, a wood fire burning in the fireplace and a café-brasserie with a quiet terrace (pretty rare in this bustling district). Hipsters around come here to enjoy grilled meats, sea-food, lobster sandwiches and exquisite desserts from La Pâtisserie des Rêves.
Even better? The 40-square meter suite is located on the last floor and offers breathtaking view of Parisian rooftops. My love, if you hear me…
