Paris is not exactly lacking boutique hotels but for those wishing to lay their head in the historic Marais, the intimacy, location and friendly service of Hôtel Bourg Tiboug is hard to beat. This romantic, French-Moroccan-themed hotel shares the same vibe and rich furnishings as big brother Hôtel Costes, which also means that your bathroom comes stocked with its cult-issue products, while the brand’s signature scent trails its corridors.

Of course, the rooms are small (they always are in the Marais), but they are smartly arranged and doubles come with a bathtub. Be sure to request a room with a balcony so that you can watch the world unfold below as you eat your breakfast croissants. Luckily, the river Seine and its jogging path is located just a few streets away, providing the best way to prepare for yet another three-course meal.


The former Jewish quarter of the Marais is a melting pot of cool corners. Whether you are seeking art galleries, organic supermarkets, casual bistros to watch the passing fashionparade, or specialty artisanal stores – also note that the Marais is the only designer shopping district open on a Sunday – this arrondissement’s cobblestone streets posses style in spades.
