French boutique hotel firm Bed and Style has teamed up with a trio of designers, including French fashion designer Stella Cadente. The result is the Aparthotel, combining the space and privacy of an apartment, with designer furnishings and hotel services.
The firm’s 6 stunning apartments are scattered around the city – 2 in the 5th, 3 in the 17th, 1 in Montmartre. Their names – La Bohème, L’Empire, La Bibliothèque – inspire fantasy.
Prices are surprisingly low, given the sometimes playful and always thoughtful decor. Even the 2 studios are outfitted with luxury bedding, plasma TV and wifi. Others boast gleaming stainless steel kitchens, period furniture, and fireplaces.
Services, such as dry cleaning, cooking classes, wine tastings, and restaurant bookings add to the appeal of the apartment hotel.
And design-o-philes who prefer small town French living to the hustle and bustle of the city can even rent Stella Cadente’s home in Provins.
