Hôtel Thoumieux

With delightfully mismatched interiors by designer India Mahdavi, Hôtel Thoumieux sits in the most cultured patch of Paris. It's eccentrically beautiful throughout, but its Michelin-starred, design-your-own-menu cuisine is the main attraction. Doubles from £169.

Hotel Sezz

Sleek and chic Hotel Sezz in the 16th arrondissement (the posh French word for district/municipality) comes with a historic Parisian façade covering a contemporary cool interior. With a spa, jacuzzi and full Wi-Fi throughout, this bold and modern escape is perfect for stylish couples. Book 21 days in advance all year round for 10% off. Mais oui! Doubles from £259.

La Maison Champs Elysées

The first hotel project of fashion frontman Martin Margiela, La Maison Champs Elysées showcases his fine eye for art, sophisticated style and playful sense of humour. The dominant colours are black, white and grey, but there's no doom and gloom here – the theatrical design is too amusing for that. Curious couture, a tranquil terrace and fine French food make this our top tip for a très chic Parisian retreat. Doubles from £309.

Hôtel Daniel

After a flâneur's foray through the streets of Paris, there's nowhere better to wind up than Hôtel Daniel. This breathtakingly beautiful hotel in Paris combines a delicate confection of exotic Eastern motifs, 18th-century Chinoiserie and specially commissioned fabric and wall coverings. Doubles from £355.

Hotel Keppler
