Rooms in hotels in this area in Paris can be quite small as space really is a luxury in this city, but the gorgeous twin room that we had was incredibly spacious for the location. Two huge fluffy and frankly, exceptionally cosy, beds in the middle of the room…
A huge wardrobe that I could easily have moved half of my wardrobe into (and that is seriously saying something!), complete with the cosiest robes that even rivaled those at the St Pancras Renaissance…
And a truly beautiful, old mirror and fireplace. I love modern, clean hotels, but there is something truly indulgent about a tastefully decorated old style hotel, and Hotel Powers has that in spades.
And, of course, no hotel room is complete without the famous Do Not Disturb sign!
Though I like a hotel room to be traditional and old style, I really only like clean, modern bathrooms. I love the neutral tones, the excellent power shower…
And especially the L’Occitane toiletries, which were refilled every day even if they hadn’t been opened.
The beds themselves are covered with luxurious Epeda bedding, which felt so soft and welcoming, and just the kind of place you wanted to be after a day of exploring Paris!
As we did have to spend quite a large amount of our time in our hotel, it was wonderful to have such a beautiful room to enjoy. There isn’t a restaurant in the hotel, but there is a small room service or bar menu available.
Though there is a buffet breakfast served in the old salon, or sitting room, of this old townhouse. No matter what you’re looking for, for breakfast there will be something for you – though I would highly recommend the pain au chocolat, ’cause when in France and all…!
The bar itself is small but gorgeous and very well stocked. We loved having an apératif before dinner at the bar and just relaxing and unwinding with a glass of wine in hand.
I need to find myself a globe for my house I think…
And then start ticking off where I’ve been and where I want to go next!
The staff were truly incredible, nothing was ever an issue, and every time we came in or out of the hotel we were asked how we were and how we were enjoying our stay. I adored the personal touch of the birthday cake and the gorgeous L’Occitane gift set that we were given; it really reminded me why I love smaller hotels.
With only 50 rooms in one the most exclusive and luxurious districts of Paris, this is one hotel you’re going to want to book before it sells out!
I know I’ll be back; the location, the gorgeous Deluxe Room we had and the staff really made our stay an incredibly pleasurable one.
Paris, et l’Hotel Powers, je vous aime !
