An art lover’s paradise, this stylish boutique hotel is set on the same Left Bank street where Gauguin once painted and is adorned inside and out with Parisian street artist Jérôme Mesnager’s famous "white body" silhouettes. With its own video art room and collection of sculptures by contemporary artist Sophie de Watrigant, the Hôtel des Académies et des Arts can compete with the numerous galleries nearby.

The boutiques, cafes, and Michelin-starred restaurants of the 6th arrondissement are on your doorstep, while people watching at the Luxembourg Gardens offers a master class in Parisian chic. Heading over to the Right Bank? Vavin metro station is right by the hotel.

Ensure you’re back in time for afternoon tea Paris style at Chez Charlotte. A tempting menu of macaroons by the world-famous Pierre Hermé awaits (foie gras is among his more unusual flavors), while teas are from Le Palais des Thés. Not enough of a sugar fix? A chocolate massage at the hotel’s wellness room might appeal. More conventional treatments are also available.

Rooms at this intimate hotel come in many varieties. Aspiring thespians will appreciate Comédienne, with its huge red velvet upholstered bed head, while Man Ray’s monochrome décor pays tribute to the avant-garde photographer. Whatever the character, expect free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs.

From the press:
  • "This avant-garde address features the distinctive signature of French street artist Jérôme Mesnager whose impish white figures back-flip up walls, scale stairs and dance above fireplaces -- ride the lift to the 5th floor for the ultimate acrobatic performance" -- Lonely Planet
