Cinq-Mars, Paris

Cinq-Mars, Paris

Cinq-Mars on the trendy rue Verneuil in the 7th arrondissement, is the perfect choice if you want to find a great locals-only restaurant. It’s such a welcome break from the typically busy, and often noisy traditional style brasseries. No gilt and crimson velvet here; the decor is very simple with […]

Hotel Le Bellecasse ticks three very important boxes for a good stay in Paris: excellent location, blissfully quiet, and all rooms come complete with a bathtub (and a full size one at that). Just steps from the Musée d’Orsay, and a two minute walk to the RER (perfect for a swift […]

Hotel Le Notre Dame

Last week we were in Paris to write a feature (as well as celebrate a friend’s birthday and wedding!) and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to visit Hotel Le Notre Dame; a Mr & Mrs Smith hotel I had heard great things about.
