I stayed at the Grands Boulevard Hotel during my last visit to Paris. The hotel is located in the 2nd Arrondisement/area, which is very central and close to my favourite building, Opera Garnier.
The hotel is chic, cosy and affordable. The design at the hotel is modern but with a touch of retro. They make use of many colours and retro style furnitures. The hotel has an intimate bar and a chic restaurant which is great for both lunch and dinner.
