Paris boutique hotel in the 2nd

The rooftop bar at the Hotel des Grands Boulevards in Paris’ 2nd arrondissement.

Hotel des Grands Boulevards is a trendy new boutique hotel by one of France’s top designers. Soundproofed rooms have a cool vibe and premium bedding; there’s a sweet rooftop bar, and the ground floor patio has a top notch cocktail bar and a glass-enclosed restaurant with great food. Located near the Grands Boulevards metro, near theaters, shopping, and Paris’ famous covered passages – a short walk to major sights and lots of transport connections.
