The most beautiful rooftop hotels in Paris

As the sun begins to shine, Parisian hotels with rooftops are quickly snapped up by locals and foreign tourists alike. With their breathtaking views over the monuments and rooftops of the City of Light, these addresses are perfect for a drink and a bite to eat at any time of day.

 

SO/ Paris

Just a stone’s throw from the Place de la Bastille, in the 4th arrondissement, the SO/ Paris is a lifestyle hotel that is an ode to art and fashion. The 162 rooms, in shades of blue and orange, are adorned with panelling and geometric motifs. The lights in the Codage spa are just as warm. But what really brings us here is the hotel’s restaurant Bonnie and bar, one of the most beautiful rooftops in Paris, with a bird’s eye view over the Seine. On the 15th floor, where the table is nestled on a 60s-style carpet, you can feast on French dishes with New York accents under a glass ceiling that enlarges the room. As you savour green asparagus with ravigote sauce and American-style coquelet, your gaze wanders over the sublime Parisian landscape. From the movement of the bateaux-mouches to Notre-Dame and the Eiffel Tower, all the beauty of the capital is revealed. The panorama from the Lobby Café, on the upper floor, is just as impressive. This bar, reminiscent of a retro New York penthouse, is decorated with mosaics on the floors, marble, glass and a plant-like work on the wall by Neïl Beloufa.

 

La Fantaisie

With 73 rooms and suites to its name, this five-star hotel in the 9th arrondissement of Paris is all about flowers and plants. The accommodation and public areas are colourful, with floral wallpaper, natural colours such as water green, grey blue between sky and sea and sunny yellow, and furniture and objects decorated with flowers and plants. Mosaic plants climb the walls of the spa, which are also decorated with sconces that resemble open flower petals. In the garden, where nature seems to have reclaimed its rights (much to our delight), we savour the dishes of three-star chef Dominique Crenn’s Le Golden Poppy restaurant. We then take a step up to the bar. Sophisticated and just as colourful as the restaurant itself, it boasts a magnificent terrace overlooking the Sacré-Coeur basilica. Ideal for a romantic weekend in the heart of the capital.

 

Madame Rêve

The name says it all. Located in the 2nd arrondissement, Madame Rêve boasts 82 rooms and suites with panoramic views over the whole of Paris and a warm, cosy atmosphere of dark wood, thick curtains and vintage furniture. The spa of this five-star hotel, dotted with photos in homage to sport, features two treatment rooms, a beautiful gym and a light wood sauna overlooking the streets of the capital. Madame Rêve is also known for its gastronomic offerings, with the Kitchen by Stéphanie Le Quellec, a restaurant with the allure of the Parisian Grand Cafés of the Belle Epoque, where you can enjoy contemporary French cuisine, and La Plume by chef Benjamin Six, with its Japanese-influenced dishes, its incredible marble bar and its leafy patio. And let’s not forget the Roof, perched atop the mythical Poste du Louvre. This 1000m2 rooftop offers breathtaking views. The church of Saint-Eustache, Beaubourg, the Panthéon, Notre-Dame… With a cocktail in hand, accompanied by plates to share, you can immerse yourself in the iconic monuments of the City of Light.

 

Cheval Blanc Paris

Part of the Samaritaine, the Cheval Blanc Paris, in the 1st arrondissement, is the ultimate Parisian luxury hotel. Its decor oscillates between Art Deco and the elegance of French craftsmanship. This historic five-star establishment boasts 72 rooms and a spa by Dior, with a large swimming pool decorated with an undulating mosaic. With the arrival of fine weather, what a pleasure it is to sit in the Jardin du Cheval Blanc, a truly green and flower-filled space whose bucolic spirit contrasts pleasantly with the Parisian rooftops as far as the eye can see. The dishes from the Le Tout-Paris brasserie (one star) and the Italian restaurant Langosteria are enhanced by the city’s landscapes, from the Eiffel Tower to Notre-Dame and the Seine. The high-flying culinary experience continues at the new Japanese restaurant Hakuba and the three-Michelin-starred Plénitude.

 

The Too Paris

At an altitude of over 100 metres, the Too Paris enjoys a 360° panoramic view of the capital. Thanks to its position between the 17th and 27th floors of one of the DUO towers, in the 13th arrondissement, the hotel’s 139 rooms and spa with jacuzzi seem to rub shoulders with the stars. The TOO restaurant, by chef Benjamin Six, offers cuisine with a variety of influences. A culinary interlude to be savoured at sunset, when the orange and pink colours reveal the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, the Seine and the Sacré-Coeur in a different light. There’s also the panoramic terrace of the TOO Tac Tac Skybar, where the dynamic, festive atmosphere takes you to 7th heaven.
