During my last trip to Paris, I had the chance to call the Hotel des Academies et des Arts, my home.

This 20 rooms boutique hotel perfectly located in the heart of Montparnasse district, 5 minutes walk from the Jardin du Luxembourg and offers the services you will get in a 5 stars high end hotel.

The hotel has 20 different rooms and each offers that Parisian romantic and artistic feeling we are all after.

My room featured the famous White Bodies of Jerome Messenger, and was decorated in a very classy and elegant style featuring gray satin and frosted glass light fixtures. 

The room was a bit on the small side but had the most comfortable and gigantic bed, with a flatscreen TV and the must have Nespresso machines, I have to admit it was hard to leave the bed! The only reason why I found the energy not to sleep in everyday was the idea of having a long bubble bath while eating my Pierre Herme macarons kindly offered by the friendly and helpful staff.

Waking up to that view. 

The whole hotel has been decorated by the Corps Blancs (White Bodies) of Jerome Mesnanger and the cultures of Sophie de Watrigant are climbing up the main staircase.

Set in the chic 6th arrondissement, just around the corner from the Jardin du Luxembourg, it was the quartier’s artistic heritage that inspired owners Laurent and Charlotte to create this unique environment. 

The lobby of the hotel, featuring the most comfy couch to rest and have complimentary coffee and tea while waiting for my taxi.

If you want to get the full Parisian chic experience, Hotel des Academies et des Arts is the place to be.

 This is a wonderful hotel, in an interesting, artistic neighborhood, conveniently situated. 
The ambience is creative, elegant, restful; the staff are superb: warm, helpful and non intrusive.
