Are you looking for the best hotels in Paris for instagram? You are going to love this list!
In the Instagram era, experiencing a hotel has taken on a whole new meaning for hotel lovers. It may be that overhead photography of a breakfast or a window view with the caption “I woke up to this” is a cliché. Still, we all “like” the day dreaming they offer.
Paris gives you many opportunities for social media creativity, so I compiled a list of instagram – worthy captures in hotels. Here you are:
The Les Bains Douches is one of the most talked about hotel openings of the previous year. The main reason is its history, since it was a point of reference back in the times of “crazy” fashion parties in the 80s and 90s, or even as early as 1885 when it first opened and became a spot for the bohemians of Paris. This year it reopened, as a hotel, a restaurant and obviously a club. With is atmosphere and decoration, it pays homage to its history with a prominent display of the posters of the live performances from its club years.
Instagram opportunities: The old posters from the club era, the art de la table, the retro reception desk.
Hotel de Vendôme
Housed at a 1800 building which was once the mansion of an aristocrat and later on an embassy, this hotel is situated in the renowned address 1, Place Vendôme. Apart from this ideal location, Hotel de Vendôme boasts a restaurant/ breakfast room which will make every instagrammer’s heart melt. Inspired by the 50s fashion ateliers, it oozes Parisian finesse, decorated with pied-de-poulle sofas and velvet cushions in “Dior grey” tones.
Instagram opportunities: Balconies with stunning view to Place Vendôme, everything inside the elegant restaurant.
Maison Champs Elysées
Μartin Margiela is the man behind the unique experience that the guests of this hotel will enjoy. Among the surprises that await the visitor -and a trademark of the hotel- is the tromp l’oeil wallpapers of the lobby, which create a feeling of playful luxury.

Hotel Providence Paris
Among the hot new entries in Paris hotelling scene, Providence Paris boasts these adorable rooms dressed in famous House of Hackney wallpapers and offers postcard views (cobbled stoned roads, and typical parisian roofs included). These are the two first reasons to fall in love with it. You will find many more, though, while staying there.
Instagram opprotunities: The fully equipped cocktail bar found in all types of rooms, the bathtub in the suite (a fetish of every hotel instagrammer), the flea market finds at the lobby, the desserts by La Pâtisserie des Rêves served at the restaurant.

Hotel du Petit Moulin
So, this original hotel is situated in the heart of Marais and owes its unique character to fashion designer Christian Lacroix, the man behind the whole (epic) decoration project! As a fashion designer, Lacroix was a master of mix and match, something that is reflected at the eclectic blend that he has created for Hotel du Petit Moulin.
Instagram opportunities: The classic 1900s boulangerie shopfront. All rooms are instagram – worthy since they are packed with colours and patterns, with references to several eras of design.
