During my time in Paris in January, I booked a one night stay at Hotel Adèle and Jules located just off the Grand Boulevards. The hotel is made up of two buildings, one is adèle and one is jules. They are both 30 rooms and look identical. I stayed in adèle in room 44. (just in case you want to reserve my particular room when booking)
I didn't know what to expect upon arrival, but the photos on the site were enough to entice me for a visit.
I arrived around 5pm which meant that the light was done for the day. It was my own fault as I had a meeting earlier in the day that ran long so I didn't get to see the full view of my room until the morning. I had an idea, but I wasn't sure fully what to expect.
You may be wondering, with an apartment on île st louis, why did I book a room at a hotel? It is important for me and the blog to give you options during your stay in Paris. I had heard good things about the hotel and I wanted to check it out for myself. Last year, I spent a good amount of time in an apartment in Paris which was perfect for my trip but not everyone likes the comfort of renting an apartment.
The staff was lovely from start to finish. I was hungry and asked for a recommendation for dinner. I was told to go to Richer, which was just around the corner. I had a big lunch of steak and potatoes so at first glance the menu looked a bit to heavy for what I was going for. I was also exhausted at this point. I ended up going to pas de loup wine bar just down from the hotel. It was lively, I was the only American and I was able to order wine and cheese at the bar, it was perfect.
My room at Adèle and Jules was decorated in pink accents. Each floor has a different color scheme. I loved the attention to detail from ceiling to floor. Let's not forget to mention the bathrooms. I came home from dinner and enjoyed a long shower followed by a warm plush robe and slippers (major bonus)
The top floor rooms have the added feature of the slanted Parisian ceilings and rooftop views.
The last thing I did before I went to bed was fill out my breakfast menu. I may have gone a little crazy checking every box. My love for croissants runs deep. I ordered a bread basket and fromage blanc with fruit. If you haven't tasted this, I highly recommend it! It is thick like greek yogurt.
I slept so hard in my bed that I almost missed the door knock with my breakfast. I am not sure why I called for it so early because it was still dark when I woke up. I pulled the bedside table to the window and set up breakfast. I taste tested everything (which explains all the box checks) the hotel gets bonus points for the good salted butter.
One of the things that I loved most about this hotel was the location. The hotel was situated on a tiny side street. If you looked out the window you would see kids outside riding their bikes with their parents. It felt much like having an apartment in Paris but with the hotel amenities.
You can also choose to have breakfast in the cozy lobby. The breakfast staff were very helpful when accommodating me for last minute requests. I do my best to speak French but the person on duty was happy to speak English back to my French.
This hotel room was basically my pinterest dreams come true. I don't think I could have asked for anything better.
If you want a relaxed evening at the hotel, they offer an honesty bar downstairs in the lobby. I found a very close grocery where I picked up a bottle of wine on my walk home. The room can make the perfect setup for a night in with wine and cheese.
I didn't want to leave this perfect space in the middle of Paris. I called down an asked for an extended check out which they were happy to give me an additional hour. Can you blame me for not wanting to give back the key?
My stay with Adèle and Jules was a sponsored post but all opinions are my own. A huge merci to the staff for a lovely stay I won't forget.
