Our ‘The Best Room At’ section offers insight into some of the world’s most charming, luxurious and iconic properties.


For those heading to Paris, it will come as no surprise that the city is packed with fabulous hotels on the Left and Right Banks and dotted throughout the spiraling arrondissements. How do you know where to choose? Decisions are easier with a little direction – and we’ll point you to the recently opened Hôtel Madame Rêve, the new gem of a stay in the first arrondissement… which happens to be located in a post office. With stunning views of the city and a rooftop lounge that is sure to be the spot for the summer, this is a must. Here, we caught up with René Blino, General Manager of Hotel Madame Rêve to dig deeper into what sets this new hotspot apart from the pack.

What do you consider to be the best room in the property and why?

Our mythical room is the “Suite Madame Rêve Exceptional View with Terrace” which bears the name of the hotel. This suite offers a magnificent view of the Saint Eustache church that you can admire from your bed, as well as from its beautiful terrace. It also offers not only a view of Saint Eustache but also a 180 degree view of Paris.

    How would you describe the guests who stay at the hotel and the general atmosphere?

    Our guests are usually couples on a getaway in the city of lovers. We also have families visiting the City of Lights. We don’t just offer our guests rooms and beds, but real moments of life.

    What do you think gives the hotel such a unique identity?

    Madame Rêve is a journey. From the ground floor to the third floor, you travel through time. The ground floor is immersed in a historic setting in homage to the Louvre post office dating from the 19th century (1888). You will be very surprised by taking the elevator which transports you from the 19th to the 21st century in only 3 floors. Moreover, unlike other hotels, Madame Rêve offers an unprecedented and radical vision of Paris. From sunrise to sunset, our guests can admire a panorama of exceptional views from the balconies of the rooms.

    Which local attraction do you always recommend to guests?

    We are lucky to be in the heart of Paris. The first arrondissement is a lively and commercial district with so many beautiful things to discover. We usually offer our customers to visit the Pinault collection which is only 2 minutes walk from the hotel. For those who like to shop, we suggest a visit to La Samaritaine which is a 5-minute walk from the hotel.

    We also have nearby the famous Louvre Museum not to be missed when you come to visit Paris, it is one of the most beautiful museums in the city. Being very close to the Marais, we also recommend beautiful walks in the pedestrian streets of this colorful and diverse district.

      What sets Madame Reve apart from its peers in the region?

      What sets us apart from our competitors, besides the “French know-how” showcased throughout the hotel, is the ambience and ambience that emanates from it as soon as you open the door. Warmly dressed in wood, all the rooms offer an enveloping and luxurious dimension and most open onto a terrace, a rarity in Paris. Right in the city center and under the sky, the Madame Rêve hotel is a unique discovery for all lovers of Paris.

        1st (borough) has changed a lot over the last decade – how does Madame Reve contribute to the new vibe of the neighborhood and how do you think the neighborhood will continue to evolve?

        The first district is the historic district of Paris. We are, after all, in the footsteps of Louis XIV! Madame Rêve does not go against the history of France, on the contrary, it prolongs it. Located in a historic building, in a historic neighborhood, with historic decor. Our hotel is a reference to history, the history of France. So, I’m going to refer to the trip I mentioned earlier. We are in a historic setting, but we offer a new view once you reach the third floor! An innovative vision that evolves with the neighborhood. Our restaurant on the top floor is a fusion between Japan and France, La Plume illustrates our journey and this innovation that pushes cultures to intertwine for a better future
