Recently, my best friend and I discovered a new favorite designer hotel in Paris called 1k hotel —located in the Marais, in the 3rd arrondissement.
This stylish boutique hotel with a focus on design is a perfect place for events such as business meetings, cocktails and any other get-together.
We booked an L-Deluxe room that has everything needed for a girls’ trip away including a Queen bed, bathtub & shower, and a huge flat-screen TV. Our room had a view of the inner courtyard, so noise from the street couldn’t be heard. A rare find for a hotel in the city-center.
I find breakfast the most important part of the day, so I always pay attention on how it’s served. Our in-room breakfast experience was en pointe, the food was delicious and the plating was perfect! You can really tell a great hotel from an exceptional hotel when it comes to the room service experience.
Another great thing about this hotel is that they have a Technogym, which is fully equipped. I used it to exercise at least once a day, so I was happy to discover this space on the ground floor.
With that being said, I ‘d planned to head to the gym in the morning, but an extra hour in the incredibly comfy bed was too tempting. Seriously, what sort of magic makes hotel beds so amazing?!
On top of all this, Al Pisco bar serves the best cocktails in the city. We tried some very nice alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks there. Their Sandia and Limonada 1K were exactly what we needed on a rainy and moody Parisian day. Also, I’d highly recommend trying the Ethnic brunch– it is entirely designed by the chef, Julien Burbaud. I do miss Peru, and so I was really happy to be able to eat Peruvian recipes in 1K Paris.
All in all, we just really fell in love with 1k Hotel Paris–great value for money, great location, amazing design and service! Paris sure knows how to deliver impeccable hotels!
Don’t be shy to follow your dreams!
