It would appear that there cannot be an excess of boutique hotels in Paris; they are the backbone of the hospitality industry in the city of lights, and rightfully so
A stay at a large chain hotel seems like a betrayal to Parisian values. Located in the 1st arrondissement and a short walk to Place Vendôme, the Louvre & Les Halles, the boutique Hôtel Le Roch exemplifies the design Paris has to offer.
Exotic wood floorings with mosaic patterns and woodwork walls. Subtle tones. Velvet — velvet all around. Memories of a contemporary Christmas at a holiday home. The Paris-based Sarah Lavoine — the designer of Hôtel Particulier Lille as well as various French apartments and villas — is behind the interiors. In her vision for Hôtel Le Roch, she revisited the classics of Parisian apartments — «like a house where it is good to be together».
«The atmosphere is muffled, in a concern of intimacy, a set of mirrored claustras pivoting on both sides filters the light and the comings and goings of everyone. The different living spaces cohabit as in a contemporary house».
Upstairs, the thirty-seven rooms are designed in five different colors, each room maintaining its own identity, all furnished with walnut parquet floors and two-tone velvet headboards. All rooms are equipped with Codage bath amenities that are made in the South of France near Nice, and inspired by French pharmaceutical tradition.
Amongst the chaos of the 1st arrondissement, respite is possible. The Saint Roch Suite — a rooftop pied-à-terre that is the most luxurious of all available options — includes a private hammam, a personal wine cellar, as well as a butler. But booking the pricier Saint Roch Suite isn’t necessary for a getaway; Hôtel Le Roch is also home to a spa. The hammam can be directly accessed via the black lava rock indoor pool which is bathed by a flood of natural light.
