Stepping inside Hotel Henriette is like stepping into the perfect DIY Pinterest board – wooden desks are built into walls, filament lamps hang from rope and headboards are fashioned out of large slabs of leather. Formerly the Hotel Résidence les Gobelins, the new budget boutique hotel stands as proof of what a bit of paint, a keen eye for design (courtesy of Paris designer Vanessa Scoffier) and an abundance of flowers can do for an establishment. With just 32 rooms, a small dining room, an idyllic outdoor courtyard and prices starting at €89 for a single, this is one of the best budget hotels in Paris.
