The Bloom House Hotel and Spa will transport you to the south of France! One of Paris’ most exciting hotel openings, stepping into the brand new Bloom House Hotel and Spa in the 10th arrondissement reminds us of a boutique hotel on the Côte d’Azur. It’s truly an urban oasis in the middle of Paris.
The most obvious highlight of the Bloom House is its luxurious indoor pool (hard to find in Paris) but we also loved the location far from the tourist center of Paris. If you want to avoid the tourist crowds and experience some of Paris’ coolest off-the-beaten-path neighborhoods like a local, we highly recommend this unique property.
We would go back for three reasons. First, in the dreary mid-winter, who couldn’t use a touch of the sunny, playful vibe that the hotel exudes with its lush interior courtyard and beautiful lobby? Second, the proximity to Paris’ Indian district (2-3 minutes walking) and Canal St. Martin (5 minutes walking) gives you access to two very unique neighborhoods most tourists never have the chance to explore. If you’re willing to walk farther, all of the up and coming restaurants of the upper Marais and Républiqe neighborhoods are at your disposal. Third, there is a Metro stop two minutes from the hotel giving you easy access to all the rest of Paris.
We found it very enjoyable to stay in a quiet, more residential part of town and explore the beautiful Canal St. Martin neighborhood with its charming cafes, natural wine bars, and intimate restaurants. After returning from a day of exploring, you can unwind in the Bloom House lobby with one of their impressive craft cocktails or take a dip in the pool. You can’t miss the opportunity to visit one or more of Paris’ best Indian restaurants just around the corner.
We found the rooms to be larger than average for Paris with a sustainable touch, like glass carafes that can be filled at a water machine in the hall (still and sparkling). Being a brand new property, the rooms are quiet and the heating and air conditioning is also state of the art and can be controlled from the front desk — something to keep in mind if you’re visiting in summer or winter.
The restaurant was closed during our visit due to the holidays, but the breakfast spread was fantastic, as were the bar snacks we had with cocktails prior.
