Hôtel de Nell, Faubourg-Montmartre
Opened this year, the Hôtel de Nell has muted, pared-back interiors by Jean-Michel Wilmotte and a bistro-style restaurant by chef Bruno Doucet. The rooms are largest on the upper levels: the first-floor Classique is snug and sparse, while the fifth-floor Prestige reveals a Japanese bathtub, separate shower and double sinks. Splash out on the top suite to find champagne, chocolates and a long balcony.
Hôtel de Nell, 7-9 Rue du Conservatoire, Faubourg-Montmartre, 9th (00 33 1 44 83 83 60; hoteldenell.com). Doubles start at €400, room only.
