Pavillon de la Reine is a charming boutique hotel on the edge of the Marais is located on one of Paris’s oldest squares, the Place de Voges. A 17th-century palace, it now offers well-appointed, spacious rooms and a Michelin-starred restaurant. Just steps from some of Paris’s best natural wine bars and most interesting restaurants, it’s easy to enjoy the nightlife before turning into your luxurious accommodations. We stayed in the expansive Suite de la Reine with three bathrooms, a sitting room, and a large bedroom.
The bathtub was one of the highlights of this suite, featuring a tall black marble arch and black and white tile work. We loved the cheery yellow color scheme and collection of vinyl records. We saw into several of the other rooms while they were being cleaned and each was unique and charming in its own special way. They had also set up a Nuna travel crib along with a snuggly teddy bear and Le Petite Prince luxury bath set.
We did not have the opportunity to eat at the restaurant (we stayed on a Sunday evening, so it was closed), but we took a look at the menu and plan to return. The lobby bar is gorgeous and in the summer extends out into the gardens in front of the hotel so guests can enjoy a cocktail at sunset before heading to dinner.
If you’re looking for a family-owned hotel in a less touristy quarter of Paris, La Pavillon de la Reine would be a great option. With a neighborhood feel and close to lots of smaller bars and restaurants, it’s a great base for exploring the unique Marais. If you want to shop, the Marais also has a lot of the same boutiques you’ll find in the busier neighborhoods of Paris with a lot fewer crowds.
