    Haha I love quirky and unique stays. So much that I started a new site especially to jot those down. Absolutely love the Leonardo da vinci theme and the sexy dreams boutique stay. These would be my go-to spots next time I visit Paris 🙂

    Wow, that last hotel in this post looks very cheesy 😀 Not sure if I want to take my partner here, she might just giggle all the time 😀 But seriously, great post and there are some quirky hotels I would love to stay here. Floating Dreams is my pick of the lot. 🙂

      Yeah, I also love the floating hotel 🙂

    These are all incredible, I agree that an accommodation experience goes so much further than a plain old cookie cutter hotel stay – Five Boutique Hotel Paris caught my eye as I was reading through! Would love to snuggle up in one of their cozy rooms for some sexy dreams!!

    • WorldInParis

      So sexy dreams for Megan! Even if I would probably choose the starred night cocoon I would be curious to try the suspended bed 😉

    What a list of great places to stay. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get a group ticket and stay in all of them for one night?

      That’s a good idea because it is difficult for me to choose just one !

    Great post! I wish I could find information like this about every city I am planning to visit. Staying in a one-of-a-kind accommodations makes the whole experience so much more memorable. My top pick from your list would be Hotel Les Bains for a funny reason. From the photo, the columns, ceiling, and walls look like they are made of luxurious chocolate. I am crazy about any chocolaty concoction so I wouldn’t miss this opportunity if I get a chance to visit Paris. Incidentally, my least favorite is Hotel Thoumieux. Even a two Michelin star restaurant wouldn’t convince me to stay in a room that those patterns on the walls and the floor. I got a headache just from looking at them in the picture 😉

      I won’t say it very loud but I totally agree with you, lol. I am sorry but I did not find the chocolate connection at Hotel Les Bains but if you are happy I am happy! 🙂

    Ha, that’s timely, I’m heading to Paris for a long weekend in November and haven’t started looking for accommodation yet. Some of these are super awesome! I especially love the Five.

    These all look so special, but I think I like the Leonardo one the best! It combines modern and contemporary with elegance and antiquity.
