Quickly, discover our favorite addresses to sprinkle your visits with well-deserved pleasures! Follow the guide, we’ll take you there (in the warmth).
A massage at the Grande Mosquée de Paris
Welcome to one of the most beautiful buildings in Paris! In fact, it’s hard to believe we’re in the heart of the 5th arrondissement and not in the medina of Fez, Morocco…
The Grande Mosquée’s hammam, open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 9pm, is undoubtedly one of the best in Paris. Very similar to the real hammams of the Maghreb, it consists of a succession of rooms, each with slightly higher temperatures. Typical massages performed by seasoned masseuses are also on offer (beware, if you’re rather prudish, as the room can be quite crowded).
And of course, at the end, we recommend a cup of mint tea in the pretty central patio. We love it!
Grande Mosquée de Paris
Saturday to Tuesday, 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
A hot Chinese bun
Small and folded, plump and airy. Why not try these little steamed brioches filled with vegetables, chicken, mustard and button mushrooms?
Yes, Baos! Soft and light, like pillows, they’re perfect for a comforting lunch break. Our favorite place to try them is Yam’Tcha, a 15-minute walk from the hotel.
Wednesday to Saturday, 12:00 to 19:00
4 rue Sauval – 75 001 Paris
Mulled wine at the Christmas market
All along Rue Rivoli, the traditional wooden huts have been set up around the BHV Marais in the run-up to Christmas. You’ll find craftspeople from all over France on hand to make little gifts, as well as tasting delicious treats.
Gingerbread, waffles, mulled wine… Hmmm, but it looks like you’re enjoying the program?
Every day from November 13 to December 31
52 rue de Rivoli – 75 004 Paris
A pastry to die for at Angelina’s
This tea room is one of those institutions that needs no introduction!
With its unmissable Mont Blanc, its hot chocolate to die for… it’s THE place to go for a good snack in a Belle Époque setting. Located right next to the Tuileries… you’re only a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
Access reserved for gourmets. For those who like it crunchy, runny, crackly and melting all at once.
226 Rue de Rivoli – 75001 Paris
