6. The Splendor Hotel

Kids and grown-ups alike will absolutely love this place located in the 17th district near Parc Monceau. The rooms are decorated in a way reminiscent of the mysterious magic tricks that enthralled most people in their childhood.

7. Hotel Edgar

Each of the 13 rooms in this hotel is singular and unique thanks to the efforts of some of the best stylists, set designers, and photographers in Paris who transformed this hotel when it came under new management. There are African-themed rooms, toy-themed rooms, and a lot more.
