Hotel Providence Paris is keeping things relatively quiet at the moment, in that sort of soft-opening way which, paradoxically, only serves to whet the appetite and heighten the anticipation. We’ll tell you what we do know: the location, where the 10th meets the 3rd, is one of Paris’s emerging hotspots, closer to Canal Saint Martin and the upper Marais than to any of the typical tourist destinations — it’s largely uncharted territory for hotels, and there’s no better feeling for a boutique hotelier than breaking new ground.
The 18 rooms of the 1854 Haussmannien building, have been individually decorated by interior designer Sophie Richard and her best friend Elodie Moussie, after Pierre Moussie decided to start his journey in the hotel industry.
When we enter the door, instead of immediately finding the reception, we find a bar counter inviting us in to the restaurant space. At the left edge of this counter, we find the reception.
The result is at once stylish and serious, and so, for that matter, is the Providence’s dedication to food and drink, those twin pillars of the Parisian good life.
The hotel’s café-brasserie is the real deal, opening onto a charming terrace, and the cocktail bar makes the Providence a proper destination.
Each room is individually decorated with designer fabric and tastefully chosen vintage furniture. It provides a warm setting along with modern comfort including an iMac’s with a fully stocked cocktail bar with a built-in ice-maker.
The rooms feature dark-coloured vintage woodwork and antique headboards that really accentuate of Paris’ upper-class Haussmannian apartments.
Most rooms have patterned velvet wallpapers, Art Deco lighting fixtures, oversized brass coffee-tables, and velvet, delicate in their forms, armchairs and two-seat sofas; in this particular, MAYA by BRABBU. Setting a contemporary guest experience out of a speak-easy aesthetic, Sophie Richard found in the MAYA armchairs and sofas, the perfect elements to reinvent the Parisian boutique hotel.
