Designed as a “comfortable refuge in profound contrast to the intense urban atmosphere of the capital” in the words of its architect, we are excited by the opening of Hotel Orphée in the Vth arrondissement. Small but perfectly formed rooms embrace a soothing colour palette of cream and terracotta. We love the modernist storage units made of warm Okoumé wood.
Feast on roast chicken and île flottante (with crème Anglaise) at the ephemeral terrasse of the Rôtisserie d’Argent, set on the banks of the Seine for the summer. There is no better view of Paris.
