Upon arriving in Paris this spring, I was utterly thrilled to be welcomed at the newly opened (May 2016), Hotel Adèle & Jules.
The girls and I were on a mission to explore the unseen. As Paris regulars, we had already checked off the ‘bucket list’ sites, so this time we wanted to completely absorb the true Parisian lifestyle. This is where the Hotel Adèle & Jules fitted in perfectly. Located in the picturesque Opera District, just a stone’s throw from the Grand Boulevards metro, the Adèle & Jules is the best boutique hotel for those looking for both luxury and style.
The Low Down
The Adèle & Jules has very recently opened in May 2016, making it one of the newest in the area. The hotel feels welcoming from the second you step foot in the door. Privately owned and operated, the design is flawless. The interiors are the work of interior designer Stéphane Poux who is well known in Paris for his ability to create beautiful, homely creative spaces for the elite, without losing that touch of luxury.
The Adèle & Jules is placed in the heart of the Grands Boulevards area, which means you won’t be far from the action. The streets are dotted with boutiques and cafés, including this adorable one just next door.
After checking in to our triple-club-room, we enjoyed the ambiance of the sitting area, plotting our itinerary. The kind hearted staff were more than willing to give great input, including some top suggestions in the surrounding area.
The common area includes a ‘honesty bar’ system, where you are welcome to enjoy a coffee or tea. From 4pm-6pm a free high-tea is also served, which was a great way to wind down after a long day of exploring.
For those who love a good sleep in (like me) the breakfast is served until 11am, which is a great bonus and adds to the relaxed atmosphere. For those with intolerances, simply let the reception know upon check-in and a gluten-free or lactose-free option will be readily available.
We did some extensive exploring of the area, which included the Opera Garnier and the major department stores of Rue La Fayette. Head up to the rooftop of Printemps department store for my favourite view in Paris, or seek out the delightful Passage des Panoramas, just 4 minutes away from the hotel doorstep!
I have learnt very quickly in life that bigger is not better. Especially when it comes to hotels! I love that with just 60 rooms, the Adèle & Jules keeps its intense personalisation and care. From the smallest rooms, to the luxe suites, you can expect the best service and fashionable setting.
As a group of three, it is near impossible to find a boutique hotel that will comfortably cater for us, but our ‘Boulevard Club’ room was perfect. One plush king size bed, along with an ever-so-comfortable double futon ensured we all had a great sleep. We loved it so much, we even spent a whole day chilling in our (ridiculously soft) robes!
Our French windows allowed a bright and airy view over the street below, which was never busy or loud. Some of the rooms also feature a Parisian-style balcony…. Oh so chic!
The usual inclusions are not missed, with a great 40” flat screen TV, personal safe, free broadband Wi-Fi, daily mineral water and Fragonard toiletries included.
Stay Here If:
You want a great, up and coming neighbourhood in Paris, known for its bistronomy. The proximity to metro is also a huge benefit, making transit around Paris a breeze.

I was welcomed a guest at the Adele & Jules Hotel, however all opinions, as always, are true to my own. I would personally like to thank all of the staff for their absolute care and attention during my four night stay at the Hotel Adele & Jules.
