Hotel Thérèse, a charming 4-star boutique hotel boasts one of the most desirable locations in Paris, the unrivaled Opera district. Just a stone’s throw away are some of the biggest attractions in the City of Lights, such as the Palais Royal, the Louvre Museum, Opéra National de Paris – the Palais Garnier, the Comédie Française and the city’s fanciest shopping district- rue Saint-Honoré. Yet, by being situated in calm and quiet rue Thérèse, this hotel somehow manages to avoid all the hustle and bustle of the big city center, which makes it a perfect sanctuary for its guests after a busy day of roaming the Parisian boulevards.
Hotel Thérèse, along with our Left Bank favorite Hotel Récamier and modern and chic Adèle & Jules near Follies Bergere, is owned by the distinguished de Lattre family, true experts in the hospitality industry. Madam Sylvie de Lattre, a former property developer, is in charge of Hotel Thérèse and Hotel Récamier, while her son Nicolas de Lattre skillfully manages Hotel Adèle & Jules.
The atmosphere in Hotel Thérèse is warm and welcoming, with friendly and informative staff. Here, the impeccable service is a matter of principle.
This charming boutique hotel is decorated by Jean-Louis Deniot with a standpoint “home as an art form.” The set tone of interior design awakens a desire for exploration, travel, and discovery with its natural materials and fabrics, elegantly patinated furnishings, engravings and paintings that the owner discovered in antique shops. The color palette used throughout the hotel is very relaxing and pleasing to the eye – earthy and muted tones of beige, brown, blue and gray. Each of the 40 rooms is personalized in order to offer a unique ambiance. There are five different categories: Mini Charm Classic, Oasis – Tradition, Cosy Welcome – Deluxe, Mansard Experience – Club and Harmony Master – Executive. We stayed in the carefully decorated Executive room that conveyed the sensation of living in a calm peaceful cocoon. Every room category has its own quirky details which will make your stay even more memorable. In our case, all the attention was on the set of wonderful designer leather chairs that looked like they have been made of some medieval knight’s armor. From our room, we enjoyed the view over the rue Thérèse, that provided us a glimpse into a life of urban Parisians.
Oasis – Tradition.
The amenities are standard for this hotel category: air-conditioning, LCD cable TV, mini-bar, safe, and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access. Beside being attractively decorated, the higher category rooms are large and highly functional while the basic category room is good for a shorter stay. Even the smallest rooms in Hotel Thérèse doesn’t feel cramped at all, thanks to the intelligent interior design and meticulously selected furniture. This is the hotel that is more than suitable for leisure guests, but also for the business travelers. All rooms have the abundance of power plugs everywhere and elegant desks that are perfect for creating a strangely inviting working atmosphere.

A classic buffet breakfast-fruit, pastry, charcuterie, and cheese- is served in the charming cellar-lounge, but still there is available option to have in-room breakfast. Since we wanted to enjoy visually impressive breakfast room with the mix of modern and medieval, we haven’t tried the room service, even thought we are sure that it’s lovely to have breakfast with a view on a quiet Parisian street. There is no in-hotel restaurant, but the hotel serves a complimentary tea time from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and the hotel will order in-meals at your request.
The charming cellar-lounge.
During our stay at the Hotel Thérèse we wanted to experience nearby locations like rue Sainte-Anne, Paris’s little Japan with many Japanese restaurants of all types. Just minutes away, behind the Palais-Royal and off the rue des Petits Champs is situated Galerie Vivienne. Built in 1823, it is one of the most iconic covered arcades in Paris, where visitors can admire the colorful mosaics on the ground and then lift their eyes to appreciate the beautiful glass roof which lets the light in. Within the gallery you may find: ready-to-wear boutiques, tea rooms, gourmet food boutiques, wine cellars, grocery shops, old bookshops and much more. We suggest to take a walk to Saint Eustache church near the Jardin Nelson Mandela and enjoy the magnificent architecture and later discover rue Montorgueil one of the last food-oriented neighborhoods in Paris where you can still find a bit of everything. Chefs and foodies from around the world come there to buy baking chocolate and other carefully selected ingredients for their dishes. If you want to experience something new, artistic and luxurious at the same time, with stunning panoramic views over Paris, go to Kong. It has everything it takes to be one of the Parisian trendiest restaurants.
Just like its sister-hotel Recamier, another gem of de Lattre family, Hotel Thérèse is fully dedicated to the comfort of its guests that want to see the city center from a little bit different, more relaxed and calm perspective. Trust us, you will feel like a true Parisian, at least we did!
