Spend a few nights in Hotel Eden
Situated far afield in a residential enclave of the 15th arrondissement, this intimate boutique hotel might just be the boost the neighborhood needed. The design was the vision of Vincent Bastie, the resident expert in concept hotels in Paris
(he's behind the Seven hotel among others) and inspired largely by mythic (and biblical) ideas of paradise - botanical wallpaper, rattan furnishings and mini terraces brimming with flowers. Each of the 40 rooms sport a different nature-focused theme and support the hotel's image as an urban hamlet - certainly worth the left bank zip code.
