One of Paris’s hippest new boutique hotels, the 23-room Jules et Jim is situated in the Marais. This place has already got the city’s fashionable types salivating. The décor pays homage to Francois Truffaut’s famous film, and the lounge bar is particularly chic; part library, part chill out room, it’s designed as an urban oasis, a place to kick back, with quirky little design touches such as lighting in the shape of dolls’ houses, and stylish art on the wall. The place is often used as the starting point of the evening by guests of the hotel (or a destination for one last drink before bed) so the crowd is fairly mixed though it does attract its fair share of the kind of hip young professional couples who spend more time looking at their iPads and phones than at one another. But as the hours tick by the music gets louder and the atmosphere becomes clubbier. To experience the place at its best, order one of their excellent cocktails or a glass of champagne, head out to the little courtyard and grab a perch by the outdoor fireplace which burns well into the night, making it the perfect spot to unwind, even if the weather is chilly. Should you wish to use the hotel itself, the rooms are fairly compact but well-appointed and with all the amenities you need, the staff are friendly and the place is handy for the sights so if you’re looking for a cool place to stay where you really don’t have to go very far to get your night out started in style, Jules et Jim could be just the thing for you.
