The Space

Housed within the former France Telecom building, which dates back to the 1930’s, Le Cinq Codet is a newly restored hotel by the acclaimed designer Jean-Philippe Nuel. It is also one of Paris’ best kept secrets – well, perhaps not anymore. Located in the 7th arrondissement, a sophisticated neighbourhood, it is a great place to stay for anyone who know Paris well, and wants to enjoy it like a local. Showcasing unique, graphic architecture - it is a place for lovers, as well as lovers of architecture and design - Le Cinq Codet accommodations, reception and dining area are splashed with fine art. Also look out for bespoke furniture by Elizabeth Garouste, Tom Dixon, and Patricia Urquiola, if you know your designers. Le Cinq Codet is all about being discrete and calm. Your fellow guests are exactly what Paris demands; stylish, charming and sophistication without the arrogance.

Where We Stayed 

We stayed in a classic room, which comes with a queen size bed or twin beds and is styled with a soft palette of colours from rich cream to smokey grey. It’s compact and simple, yet efficiently stocked with everything you need. The shower was powerful, and the bathroom spacious with his and hers sinks. The use of space was practical, with a view of the courtyard; being able to open the window was a breath of fresh air, and an unusual feature in modern hotels.

Insider Tips  

  • The Classic Room is a bit of tight squeeze, so splash out on a higher grade room if you can afford it.
  • If you want a suite with a view, the Duplex Suite overlooks Les Invalides, while the Superior and Prestige Suites take in Les Invalides and the magnificent Eiffel Tower.
  • Be patient at breakfast if you staying on the weekend – it can get crazy!
  • Take time to walk around the hotel and marvel at the free art and designer furniture.
