On a quiet, quaint street close to the L'Arc de Triomphe and Charles de Gualle metro station
Hidden Hotel is, in fact, hidden on a side street, and yet just a quick stroll to L'Arc de Triomphe and the Charles de Gualle metro station (for an easy trip to the airport). A number of cafes and restaurants, as well as Paris's shopping district on avenue Montaigne and the Faubourg Saint Honore, are all within walking distance. The metro stations also provide easy access to several of Paris' attractions including the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, the Grand Palais, and the Eiffel Tower.
The Hidden Hotel -- as its name suggests -- is tucked away on a quaint side street within walking distance to L'Arc de Triomphe and the Charles de Gualle metro station. The intimate hotel has only 23 rooms, and incorporates handmade craftsmanship and natural materials that give it a contemporary and Zen-like vibe. Room types come in different levels (some include balconies and terraces) and though small in size, are effortlessly chic. Beds -- dressed in organic cottons, of course -- are canopy style, and bathrooms have an open design with granite finishes and rainfall showerheads. Though breakfast has a fee, it is a healthy spread using local ingredients. In the evenings, the cozy bar is a great spot for pre-dinner drinks and appetizers, and during the day a barista serves up delicious cappuccino (and other coffee treats) in the chic setting.
