10 Quirky Hotels In Paris Straight From A Wes Anderson Movie

Paris is massive, so naturally, there are going to be loads of hotels in every corner of the city.

But not all hotels in Paris are made equally. You’ll find everything from dumpy budget hotels to grand and luxurious palace suites.

Popping up more and more are design hotels meant to appeal to people looking for pastel hues, quirky details, and vintage charm.

No matter where you stay, make sure you’re located next to a Metro station! This will make getting around much easier, to the point that the neighborhood you choose won’t really matter because the rest of the city will be just a couple of train stops away.

Lucky for you, these handpicked hotels are not only close to Metro stations — they also look as if they’ve been straight-up plucked from the palette of a Wes Anderson movie set!

Feel like you can’t choose only one? That’s reason enough to return for a future trip.

This is a 5-star Michelin-guide hotel that’s well-deserving of its status. With a Wes Anderson meets Alice in Wonderland vibe, this hotel sits on the spectrum between an indie boutique hotel and a palatial luxury hotel! Either way, it’s drop-dead gorgeous.

The 50 rooms and suites have unique nature-inspired wallpapers, ornate moldings, and plush fabrics in mixed colors and textures. Just wait til you see the common room and the garden. Swoon.
