Hôtel du Temps
A night at Hôtel du Temps is like staying at your very trendy Parisian friend’s apartment. The friend in this case is in fact owner Yoan Marciano who teamed up with set designer and architect Laura Leonard and designer Alix Thompson to create a beautiful hotel in this former mansion house between the trendy 9th and 10th arrondissements. The hotel – made up of 23 rooms, a bar and small dining area and a hidden club in the basement – is quirky yet elegant and mixes bespoke furniture with tropical mismatched prints and art you will likely want to take home. The fact that it feels like a friend’s home could be a downside for some – walls are thin, spaces intimate and exterior facing rooms can be noisy.

Fresh, light and playful. The rooms have a countryside charm with white-washed wood-panelled floors and quirky prints. Go for the suite for a view of Paris and more space. Rooms start at £95.
Pastries, coffee and fresh fruit juice served from behind the bar for €10.
Lunch and Dinner?
There’s no restaurant – but you are a hop, skip and a jump from some of the coolest restaurants in Paris.
Is there a Bar?
There are two. The bar on the ground floor and the hidden club downstairs used mostly for private events.
Need to know
Outward facing rooms are more romantic but noisier.
It’s a 15-minute walk from Gare du Nord. Befriend owner Yoan who knows all the best spots in the area.
Within a short walk
Ingredients make all the difference. Made with top quality beef and cheeses, PNY burgers are top notch. The return of the cowboy and the morning California are our favourites.
Frenchie bar à Vins
While we recommend Frenchie the restaurant, reservations take quite a bit of planning. For a more spontaneous visit, head to their wine bar. A casual setting serving meats, cheeses and a seasonal selection of small plates.
As a guest of the hotel, take advantage of your close proximity to Abri, and swing by on a Saturday or Monday for their street food themed lunch. Abri is a Michelin-starred restaurant and it is nearly impossible to score a dinner time reservation.
