Hotel des Arts - Montmartre

Montmartre is a Parisian neighborhood made to be enjoyed by lovers. Its cobblestone streets and quaint cafes have been a favorite refuge for the crème de la crème of the world's most famous artists, such as Renoir, Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Degas. Such legendary movies as Audrey Tautou-led "Amélie" and Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge" were also filmed here.

Hôtel de JoBo

Some hotels are just made for a romantic break. That's the case of the Marais-located Hôtel de JoBo. The JoBo in the name stands for Joséphine Bonaparte, the Empress of France and first wife of Napoleon. While Ridley Scott's latest biopic "Napoleon" may reignite the spark of interest for this historic figure (played by Vanessa Kirby) in the general audience, this boutique hotel pays a glamorous and daring homage to the sovereign. It's the ultimate honeymoon choice with colorful, uniquely-themed rooms, leopard prints in the decor, and the atmosphere of cultured royal dalliance in the air.

That's why the location doesn't come as a surprise. Very bohemian and LGBTQ+-friendly, Le Marais is also among the top Paris neighborhoods where you can spot celebrities. Intimate streets and alleys, independent galleries, and cafes of all shapes and colors await you here. JoBo would be a perfect base to fully immerse in the free-spirited lifestyle of this part of Paris. The hotel also includes a tea room that transforms into a swanky cocktail bar in the late evening.

Then comes the day of obligatory sightseeing that starts with admiring the epic Hôtel des Invalides complex across the street, strolling from one Seine bridge to another, and holding hands while sitting on the bench of one of the most elegant Parisian jardins (or public garden parks). The hotel spa means a guaranteed unwinding in the evening soaking in the swimming pool, lounging in the whirlpool bath, or steaming in the sauna and hammam.

The hotel is set in a 19th-century Haussmanian building with high ceilings and preserved historic elements in its decor. The apogee of luxury is the Suite Aurore which may well be one of Paris' finest and most exclusive units. Guests who choose to stay here get an unparalleled vista of the Eiffel Tower and a private terrace with a city panorama, a true luxury in the French capital.

Maison Souquet

Romance means different things to different people. Maison Souquet is a well-known address for those seeking a sultrier, sexier kind of boutique lodging with a full devotion to an upscale experience. Once a maison close (or a pleasure house) operating at the turn of the 19th century, the mansion was reincarnated as an ultra-luxurious hotel with 20 individually decorated rooms for the in-the-know guests. No detail here is random, as the Jacques Garcia-designed spaces are highly seductive and classy. The motives throughout the hotel can be described as Arabian style meets Napoleon III, with bespoke furniture, artwork, and tapestry enhancing the immersion into a self-indulgent mood. The dark color scheme throughout the mansion accentuates the enigmatic ambiance.

Still, it's the amenities that take center stage here. You won't get enough of the spa; it is unlike anything else in Paris. The pool is dimly lit by the celestial ceiling, and there's a hammam with a dedicated room for body and facial treatments. Couples can also book the whole spa for private use.

Hotel Moderniste

There are so many ways to experience the romantic side of Paris, but getting out of the busy city center and basing yourself in the more laid-back (and very green) 15th arrondissement can be a great idea. Due to its distance from more touristy attractions, Hotel Moderniste may be an unconventional boutique lodging choice, but it masterfully incorporates the elements of Art Deco and avant-garde into its curated interiors, and the hotel is full of inspiration and beauty.

All these details feel very organic, and the hotel's building itself dates back to the 19th century. Rooms and suites have a breezy feeling to them and offer street views and vintage touches like retro phones and radios.

While the soul of Monsieur Aristide may be in the Belle Époque era, the amenities are still very much modern and comfy. You've got free WiFi, big flat-screen TVs, individual air-conditioning, and 24/7 concierge service for a hassle-free stay. A true gem is the on-site Café Aristide, which serves interpretations of classic French dishes and boasts a cozy inner garden. And then there's the location. Step outside, and you'll be in the heart of Montmartre, with known for its wooden windmills, lively streets, and picturesque little squares where the street musicians play. It's an unbeatable area for couples.
