The MonHotel Lounge & Spa is an upscale boutique hotel well-located near the Arc de Triomphe and the Palais des Congrès convention center. As of our 2016 visit, the hotel had 36 rooms, with plans to bring the total to 50 with the acquisition of an adjacent property. Rooms are modern with luxe details such as upholstered walls and Eames chairs, plus marble bathrooms with rainfall showers and luxe little extras like loaner smartphones and minibars. The hotel's bar serves up small plates, drinks, and daily breakfast in a darkly romantic atmosphere, though breakfast isn't standard with the room rate. MonHotel also has a small spa with a treatment room, hammam, and gym. Another alternative to consider could be the nearby Hidden Hotel, though it lacks a spa.
Traditional exteriors and dark, glitzy interiors drawing couples and business travelers
Set in a classic six-story stone Haussmann building, the Monhotel Lounge & Spa offers a flash of style on an otherwise quiet and nondescript street near L'Arc de Triomphe. The hotel pairs chic, classic details, like black-and-white tiled floors and sparkling chandelier lights, with bright pop-art accents, electronic lounge music, and cool photos of celebrities. A dark, romantic boudoir vibe permeates -- the breakfast area, which transforms into a bar at night, features black walls, a purple ceiling, and purple velvet chairs gathered around candle-lit tables set under glass chandeliers. Much of the hotel has been refreshed or renovated since 2015, including extensive rehabbing of the bar and spa. As of our 2016 visit, the hotel had just purchased the property next door, with the expectation of bringing 14 new luxury rooms under the hotel's name, taking the guest room total from 36 to 50. The romantic vibe attracts couples, while easy access to Palais des Congrès convention center and La Defense business district make it an attractive choice for business travelers, too.
On a quiet street near the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees
The MonHotel Lounge & Spa is on a quiet street near the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees, and the Palais des Congrès convention center. There are endless shops and cafes in the area, but the neighborhood is also a central spot for workers during the day, so it's busy. There are two metro stops very close by, making it easy to sightsee farther afield. The Charles de Gaulle Etoile metro stop is a five-minute walk, and serves lines 1, 2, and 6, plus offers easy access to Charles de Gaulle Airport and the La Defense business district via the RER A commuter train.

Sleek rooms with luxe details and amenities -- but entry-level rooms are small
Guest rooms offer simple but trendy modern decor with crisp white linens and charcoal-colored carpeting. Details such as leather headboards and soft upholstered walls add polish as do the designer accents like Eames desk chairs. Bathrooms are modern, most are marble and feature rainfall showers; some have separate tubs. Amenities are high-end: flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, minibars, coffee/tea facilities, and free Wi-Fi, plus AC and safes. Guests are also given loaner smartphones for the length of their stay, which are loaded with travel-friendly apps. Bathrooms have robes, slippers, organic toiletries, hairdryers, and towel warmers. Upgraded rooms add espresso-makers, sitting areas, balconies, or other extras. At 160 square feet, entry-level Premium Rooms are cramped (though this is typical in Paris), and even Superior Rooms are small (200 square feet), but the four-person Junior Suite is more than double that size.
Nice extra features like a stylish bar and small spa
MonHotel has property features not typically found at boutique hotels in central Paris, which tend to be limited to breakfast rooms and not much else. Here, the breakfast room turns into a bar in the evening that serves drinks and light fare. Breakfast doesn't come standard with room rates, but breakfast room service is available. The spa, renovated in 2016, includes a hammam and a moody treatment room. The hotel also has a small but functional gym with modern weightlifting and cardio equipment, including a treadmill and elliptical. Monhotel offers meeting space and free Wi-Fi as well. The front desk is open 24 hours, and staff offer concierge services, like ticket assistance or arranging for town cars or childcare.
