10th Arrondissement Hotels
9-11 Place du Colonel Fabien, 10th
Yes, this is a hostel, but if you’re sending teens/college students through Paris on a European tour, it’s just right—especially if you book a private room: It's bare-bones but clean, spacious, and comfortable. The roof terrace, bar, and living room are ideal hangouts, while the Canal Saint-Martin neighborhood nearby makes fun stomping grounds for the budding hipster.
Hotel Grand Amour
18 Rue de la Fidélité, 10th
Hotelier Thierry Costes and artist/club impresario André have come together again for a follow-up to their ever-popular Hotel Amour, doubling the space to accommodate the demand for their particular brand of Parisian cool. Each room is individually decorated with some incredible vintage finds and a scattering of artwork by the likes of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin. Meanwhile, downstairs, the all-day café/bistro is the place to see and be seen by locals, expats, and even Saraiva himself.
