Paris is known for their countless boutique hotels, each one unique in their own way. During my Paris trip, I stayed at 3 different boutique hotels, and I must say the Hotel Noir was my favorite. Set in the 17th district of Paris and only a 10-15 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées, it is conveniently located and has easy access to several metro stations. And also with the friendly and helpful staff members and the chic aesthetic of the lobby and hotel room, I had the most comfortable stay there and felt completely at home.
The first thing I noticed when I stepped into my room was how retro-chic the interior decor was. It’s not very often you encounter hotel rooms with dark-colored walls and furniture and an abundance of black-and-white photographs decorated all along the walls. Even the bedside lamps and the jaguar-printed curtains had an antique feeling, giving the room a moody atmosphere at night. I loved how I had plenty of desk space for when I had to work in the evenings, and a comfortable, spacious bed with crisp sheets. Breakfast was about 9 Euros per morning, with all-you-can-eat bread, coffee and juice in the sitting area near the front desk. The tables, chairs and sofas all had an antique feel to them, worn in in all the right places. This is exactly how imagined Paris to be like, especially after watching French films.
While the price per night was already affordable, they also had complimentary magazines for guests which I took home as a souvenir. They also provided laundry service for 10 euros, which was helpful for a tourist like me who was busy sightseeing every day. But I think the one thing I really appreciated from the staff was when they helped book me my next hotel, since they didn’t have any more openings for the last 2 nights of my stay in Paris. The receptionist was kind enough to call nearby hotels to see if they had openings, and when she did find one, she offered to make the reservation for me on the phone. Gestures like these are what stand out, and make an ordinary hotel experience much more special. I know I’ll be staying here again when I’m in Paris next.

You are absolutely right, the decor of this hotel is very retro-chic with film noir aspects. I love to find affordable hotels! That photo of you sitting on the bed is so beautiful! If I am in Paris, I will def look into this beautiful hotel.
The hotel looks so luxe and the retro vibes are love! You’re looking gorgeous, hun 🙂
First of all let me say I dream of going back to Paris all the time!! That hotel just made me want to go even more! It’s so Parisian! I live in New Orleans and we have certain parts that remind me of French culture and I just love the vibe. I love the hotel you stayed in so much that I would love to decorate my place like it!!

I have never been to Paris but your posts are truly bringing it to life for me! The Hotel Noir is truly outstanding and it definitely is how I would imagine a hotel in Paris to be. You look positively stunning and I’m glad you took the magazines as a souvenir. I also love how the hotel was so accommodating to help you find other places. Can’t wait to hear more!

Love the dark interiors. I agree it is not often you come across a room with dark walls and an abundance of decorative pieces. Minimal and white is the usual uniform hahaha!
I haven’t even been to Paris yet, so I have no idea how nice their hotels are. If your pics from Hotel Noir are any indication of what I should expect, clearly I’ve been missing out on traveling! Retro chic is right up my alley and I am loving the interior all around!
That hotel looks amazing doll! I hope that you had the best time and I’ll definitely check that hotel out when I visit!
Hope you had a great weekend and lovely week ahead doll!
My favorite city ever! Was just there in April and did not want to leave. Hotel looks great.
It all comes down to the details and in this case it wasn’t even a small stay as you would have ended up on the streets if they hadn’t helped you (exaggerating, I know you know you’re a streetwise girl who knows how to take care of yourself). I love hotels that give you that little extra and as I’ve never stayed in the 17th arrondissement I really need to have a look at this lovely boutique hotel! Thanks for the tip, Samantha!
Great post, like it 🙂
The retro vibes of this hotel make it so unique. Boutique hotels is my favourite ones, because I am sucker for unique and photogenic places.
You room looks amazing, especially the cute little corner with the desk and mirror, cool working place!
The whole atmosphere of this hotel makes me think about old noir movies, you are right!
Hotel Noir looks amazing!! I love all the black themed decor and the room is so cute. This hotel is just so you Sam!!! !7th District is definitely a neighborhood to stay. Thanks for the great recommendation.
Such a charming boutique hotel! I am going to Paris in the fall and can’t wait. I totally love the vibe of this hotel and the dark walls are so cool. The working table is also a nice touch and the bed looks so cozy. The location seems great being close to the Champs and Arc and all the subways. What an amazing experience to stay in such a cute hotel. xoxo, Christine
Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing with us!
Isn’t That Charming.
Looks like you had a splendid time in Paris! This hotel looks really cozy and quaint! I would love to visit one day and experience it myself 🙂 Have a great week darling xo, sharon
I’m so impressed by their customer service! They really proved to go above and beyond for you by helping you book accommodation at another hotel. That’s amazing! It looks gorgeous inside too. The first word that comes to my mind when it comes to their interiors is “sumptuous”. You’re right, it does look like a French film! I’ll definitely keep them in mind the next time I plan a trip to Paris.
This looks like such an amazing hotel! I am so excited to go to Paris for the first time and I will definitely be considering staying here – you made it look and sound so wonderful!
Hotel Noir looks like a beautiful hotel for artists to escape to for inspiration! Since you like this hotel you probably would love QT Sydney which has a similar vibe. And 10 euros for laundry service is so cheap I can’t believe it!
