This boutique hotel is the sweet Parisian escape from our romantic travel dreams – hotels above par

The castle of flowers is Paris’ sweetest escape.

The boutique hotel is a dream-worthy abode that one can imagine while imagining a trip to the City of Lights.

Tucked away on a side street off the Champs-Élysées, Château des Fleurs is a new abode for travelers – it opened earlier this year. And Château des Fleurs, which translates from French as “house of flowers”, lives up to its name from the moment of arrival.

The exterior, which includes a beautiful facade, is characterized by greenery and flowers lining the terraces of the building. In September during our visit, colors of magenta and purple made stepping out onto our small balcony for a morning stretch irresistible, especially with their sweet fragrance.

Inside the property on the corner of Rue Vernet and Rue Galilée, guests are greeted by a concierge in an open-concept lobby that includes a bar and dining area, with additional dining seating tucked under an archway.

The decor is lovely. Every opportunity for detail was noted and appropriately used. In the bar area, the coffered ceiling featured whimsical moldings along with overhead lighting, including details that looked like upside down flowers or mushrooms on a burnt red stone floor.

The combination of plush, tassel and bouclé-focused seating in the dining room looks chic against paneled walls, knick-knack shelves and an intricate carpet under a mirrored ceiling in the dining room, along with a copper and marble fireplace not far from a matching red marble bar detail.

Inside the guest rooms, the details continue: wood paneling along the king suite entrance, red and white bath time with marble accents on the tub, red polka dot rug, mirrored side table, Bluetooth speaker, tasseled window seat, small terrace , a stained glass sconce – the list goes on – and some rooms offer even more luxurious amenities.

The property offers breakfast, including made-to-order options such as eggs, a basket of pastries and other delights. Breakfast is available in the restaurant and lobby area, as well as in the room. Château des Fleurs is also home to Restaurant OMA, a Korean-French fusion restaurant from chef Ji-Hye Park.

The cocktails at the bar didn’t disappoint either – and are available from 11am to midnight. We enjoyed a Saturday afternoon during our stay and highly recommend the Flower Spritz, which is made with tea infusion, jasmine syrup and blueberry blossoms, which Château des Fleurs advertise as an “ode to the Belle Epoque”.

Nearby dining, entertainment, sightseeing and shopping options abound with the Champs-Élysées just steps from the hotel, including many great restaurants such as Chez André, Kinugawa and Le Petit George plus the Musée Chanel and many luxury stores including Louis Vuitton. The Arc de Triomphe is a short walk from the hotel doors, and the Trocadero is also walkable if you’re up for a slightly longer venture.

Between the location, the decor and the amenities offered by Château des Fleurs, we know we’ll be returning to this stunning property that makes us feel like we’re experiencing la vie en rose.
