    Flying solo.

Highs + Lows

  • The design in impeccable. Every detail is thought of. Even the toiletries are custom made in gorgeous bottles, bars of soap with GPH bellboy logo. I am head over heels with this place.

  • Intimate hotel with very friendly and kind staff. I got the biggest room and felt so well taken care of.

  • As the hotel is opened by the guys behind Experimental Cocktail Club, the Wine and Dine bar serves some of the best cocktails in town. It also closes when the last costumer leaves. I’ve sat there until 3 am once. Oops. I guess that’s why they have house mixed cocktails in the minibar. Oh joy!!

  • The breakfast buffet is small and every item is locally sourced and delicious. I am a fan of small buffets as with too much choice I carnally eat like a pig.

  • There are no lows. This is my favourite hotel in Paris.
