Hôtel Providence

Top choice boutique hotel in Montmartre & Northern Paris

This luxurious hideaway, in a 19th-century townhouse in the increasingly trendy 10e, is exquisite. Its 18 rooms (seven with balconies) have rich House of Hackney velvet wallpaper and vintage flea-market finds; the smallest aren't nearly as 'Mini' (by Paris standards) as the name implies. Bespoke cocktail bars in each room come complete with suggested recipes and ingredients.

The downstairs bar-bistro, with a fireplace and delightful summertime pavement terrace, doubles as reception.
