Maison Favart

At Rue de Marivaux, in the historic square next to Opéra Comique and in the heart of the 2nd district of Paris, is located the elegant Boutique Hotel Maison Favart.
Not being my favorite neighborhood in the eternal City of Light, it is for sure an area that has bohemian energy. It is the neighborhood of the Grands Boulevards, effusive, where music, cinema, and gastronomy lovers come together. As you know, gastronomy is of great importance to us, so we couldn’t miss a visit to the Passage des Panoramas, some restaurants, and wine bars in the area.

Very close, it’s possible to find some of the most iconic places in the city, the Ópera Garnier, the Galeries Lafayette, the Le Printemps, and the Vendôme square.

Maison Favart is full of history, the name comes from the famous Favart couple, responsible for the birth of Opéra Comique in the city.

As we arrive at the hotel, even before entering, the sensation is that we are in front of a dollhouse, elegant and a bit magical with its touches of pink and gray. The facade transports us back in time to a history immersed in the beauty of the XVIII century. When entering, the feeling is of surprise, almost like we’re inside a jewelry case with classical music as ambiance. The entire decor is refined, with velvety fabrics and pastels, grays and pinks as colors.

Comfort and a feeling of well-being are key, but the elegance is constant. An authentic XVIII century style revisited.

We are welcomed by a team with warm smiles, while being served coffee by the fire, waiting for our check-in. From my armchair, I can see the Winter garden located right by the reception. Each corner of the hotel is unique and takes us traveling into the memories of the Favart’s.

Maison Favart has 39 bedrooms, of different types, from the Classic to the Deluxe, the Duplex, or Suite, to the La Petite Maison.

We stayed in a Classic bedroom.

The strong colors of pink contrasted with the serenity of the light coming in from the Place Boieldieu. The decoration was contemporary with some inspiration in the XVIII century. Cozy, comfortable, and similarly to the rest of the hotel, as elegant as a dollhouse.

After a few hours enjoying our room, we went exploring the honesty bar of Maison Favart. Right by the reception, in the same room where breakfast is served, we have a bar space, honesty concept! Where the guests can serve themselves and take note of what they spent. An evening well spent, an idleness moment, and of noble behaviour.

And speaking of this room, the breakfast is served in a typical Parisian style, and the decoration is the perfect picture of what I’ve saying: this hotel is a jewelry case or a dollhouse. See for yourselves and tell me I’m right about the description?

Another service the hotel provides is the well-being area, with a warm pool with a waterfall, and “mirror cloud”, a sauna and a massage room, with an excellent water bed that provides a true refuge of the Parisian bustle in this time of the year.

Here we can also find a small gym to help with the huge consumption of food and wine form our stay!!

Another activity that Maison Favart promotes is viticulture – the Domaine de la Soucherie  – that can welcome guests for a stay at its Maison des Amis, and its four elegantly decorated rooms, or just for a visit to the property and a wine tasting, with an astonishing view over the valley, just 2h30 away from Paris.

Maison Favart is a small and magical place in the center of Paris. A boutique hotel that takes us back to childhood and that safe space.

A house with the glamour of another Era, where smiles and reminders from other centuries fill our souls!
