A modern-meets-classic escape to a small yet chic hotel near the Place de la Bastille, with Eurostar travel and River Seine cruise

Jet off on a romantic Parisian escape to the Grand Hotel Français, right in the centre of the lively city of love. This six-storey hotel opened its doors in 1889 and sits on Place de la Nation, one of the city’s major crossroads. Close to the bustling Bastille area and the picturesque Père Lachaise district, there will be hoards of elegant boutiques and charming shaded café terraces to soak up.

Conceived around guest expectations, this hotel has everything from tailor-made furniture to balneotherapy equipment. Each morning you can indulge in a delectable and traditional French breakfast, with pains au chocolat and baguettes. Nearby, you can rent a moped to speed past Champs-Élysées and Notre Dame - a popular example of French Gothic architecture - before enjoying an evening ballet performance at Opera Bastille.

Even TripAdvisor agrees that there's something special about this place, as they awarded the Grand Hotel Français a Certificate of Excellence.
