Atmospheres hotel is a nice little boutique hotel in the Latin Quarter and it’s the kind of place we love.
Its location is simply perfect: a five minute walk away from Notre-Dame and Jardin du Luxembourg, just a street away from the Panthéon, super close to the fabulous boulevard Saint-Germain… really, it’s the best located hotel we’ve ever been in Paris. It’s perfectly connected to the airport too and that’s always a plus because, let’s be honest, when you visit Paris you usually take a very big suitcase with you ;)
The modern and all black lobby doesn’t make you think that the rooms are going to be as colourful as they are. I particularly loved the use of black and stone walls in the main areas of the hotel. The 112 original prints by the photographer Thierry des Ouches that are displayed thoughout the hotel are really beautiful and add a nice touch to the whole decor,so you should take a moment to admire them!
Our room was quite big compared to the standard measures of hotels’ rooms in Paris,that normally are tiny tiny tiny. I loved the mix of prints and bright colours: fuchsia and lime green. The bed was huge and comfortable and we had a nice sofa next to the window, which overlooked a beautiful little patio and from where we could see some lovely Paris roofs.
But the bathroom was my favourite part, no doubt. Huge double shower… but not enough place to store all our make up and beauty products, though. Anyway, it was super sweet and macaroon inspired.
Macaroon wall paper in the bathroom. I told you.
Unfortunately we didn’t take pictures of our breakfasts… But they were delicious. In fact, the croissants were the best that we ate in Paris! I should have asked which boulangerie they where from. Anyway, we’ll definitely be back so we will ask next time!

PS: if you stay in hotel Atmospheres, you should have dinner some night at Lou Lou Friendly Diner. Try the Club Pastrami sandwich (with a surprising touch of avocado!)
