Have you ever been tasked with finding a place to stay in Paris?

What. A. Chore.

There are so many options and so many details to consider – from neighbourhood to transit access; something classic and chic but that won't break the bank; and something romantic or fun, or whatever vibe you might be looking for.

We recently spent a night at the beautiful Hotel L'Echiquier Opéra Paris - MGallery by Sofitel, and we think it checks all the boxes.

  

Firstly, the lobby is warm and inviting.

If you're looking for more space than your typical Parisian property, treat yourself to a suite. You might find it worth the extra money.

But FYI, the standard rooms are pretty great, too.

This is Le 38 Bar Lounge. Inviting, right?

Really, the whole property has that Parisian charm we're all looking for.

Moral of the story is: Hopefully this makes your search a bit easier the next time you're planning a visit to the City of Lights.
