When in Paris: stay at the boutiquy chic Hotel Flanelles

Hotel Flanelles is one of Paris’ best kept secrets. This very charming hotel is located at 14 Rue Brey, in the 17th district of Paris, a walking distance from Arc de Triomphe which recently hosted Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s spectacular art installation.

Slightly off the most touristic area, and in a very safe and quiet street, Hotel Flanelles is easily accessible to other landmarks such as Champs-Elysées, Avenue Montaigne, Jacquemart-André and Orangerie Museums, Monceau Park and Grand Palais to name a few. In a nutshell, it’s one of the most prestigious locations of Paris.

Recently renovated, the hotel offers the finest luxury, situated between curated elegance and ultimate relaxation. Laurent & Laurence design agency, also responsible for the renovation of Le Narcisse Blanc, added an extra touch of taste through a nuanced palette and a typically Parisian inspiration.

The delicious and well-presented breakfast is available until 1pm, a rarity for more common hotels. This allows guests to enjoy the buzzing nightlife of the French capital a little longer. The famous Lido club, for example, which featured Dita Von Teese’s shows in the past, is an eight-minute walk to the hotel. Expect fresh bakeries, excellent muesli, nice jams and beautiful fruits.

Professional, helpful and warm staff offer personalized services of the highest standards. Attention to details at Hotel Flanelles is really high, from the beautiful lobby and library, to the selections of photographic prints and artworks on view, Hotel Flanelles provides the quintessential boutique experience. The spaces feel a like like a home away from home, with cozy cushions and a real invitation to relax.

The large and decent-size twenty-five bedrooms are all extremely comfortable and range from Classic, Premium, Superior to two types of Suites with stunning balcony-views over the Paris landscape. The Suite for example features a fireplace, a private staircase, a glass roof, spacious bed, and black and white-tile shower which makes it perfect to let your hair down.

Room-service, spa and wellness centre downstairs, changing rooms for early or late departure, library available to rent for intimate private events and transportations to airport or train stations are some of the services available, allowing guests to sit-back and enjoy their time in Paris.

Other gastronomic options are stunning with gourmet aperitivo, delightful Club Sandwich or refined patisseries. There’s no restaurant in the hotel but attentive staff will provide fantastic suggestions of top gastronomic venues in the area.
