9 In France/ Hotels


My first trip to Paris was when I was 15, but if we’re honest, it feels like much longer ago. So, when the opportunity arose to visit Paris a second time, 11 years after my first and only trip, I sprung at the chance. Not only would I see the famous “City of Lights” again, but I would also have the opportunity to stay at the luxurious Renaissance Paris Republique Hotel. It all felt too perfect! Out of my five days spent in Paris, I spent three nights at this fabulous spot. I had first come across this hotel on various Paris-based Instagram accounts. What had caught my eye, in particular, was its location as well as its rooftop views. Needless to say, my Parisian experience was everything that I was looking for and more, all thanks to the Renaissance Republique.

Location of Renaissance Paris Republique

Renaissance paris republiqueEveryone knows that, when visiting Paris, it’s crucial to pick a hotel in a centrally-located neighborhood. This can make the difference between having to wake up super early to reach your desired tourist spots or being able to take the day with more ease. With Renaissance Republique‘s prime location, we rarely used the metro during our trip! Being able to walk to the tourist attractions that we wanted to see was a huge selling point. To give you a bit more detail, the hotel is close to Le Marais District, Place de la RepubliqueCanal Saint-Martin, and Gare du Nord (train station).

Since Anna and I are big fans of walking in Paris, I wanted to list some of the attractions we most enjoyed. I’ve also included the approximate walking time from the hotel: 

  • Place des Vosges (22 mins) 
  • Palais-Royal (28 mins)
  • Louvre Museum (30 mins)
  • Palais Garnier (32 mins)
  • Rue Crémieux (35 mins)

Of course, you can take public transportation (the Republique metro station is steps away from the hotel), but there is undoubtedly something special about experiencing Paris on foot! You’ll especially enjoy strolling Paris in the evening.

The rooms

Renaissance paris republiqueThe Renaissance Paris Republique offers seven different types of rooms, all with varying views of the city. If you’re hoping to celebrate a special event in Paris, I recommend checking out the Artist Studio Suite. No matter the room you choose, each is equipped with first-class amenities and 24-hour room service. After a long day of traipsing around Paris, there’s nothing like coming home to the Renaissance Republique. Kick off your shoes, take a warm bath, and fall asleep in the über comfortable bedding. I might’ve had some of my best nights of sleep here!

Origin Restaurant

One of the best parts of staying at the Renaissance Paris Republique is that you don’t even have to leave the hotel to have a world-class dining experience. Eggs inspire the Origin Restaurant as a concept of birth and origin. Thus, many popular dishes here will include eggs in fun and different ways. I recommend dropping by Origin for any meal, but I was lucky enough to be able to spend breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. I started each day with some of the best and freshest pastries and a delicious combination of eggs, fruit, and juices. 

Dinner at Origin is genuinely unique, and Chef Thierry Motsch is creative in her designing of entrees. Anna and I each tried an appetizer, an entree paired with wine, and a dessert that I will be talking about for at least the next five years. When dining at Origin, I highly urge you to ask your server for recommendations. We were having trouble deciding because everything looked so good! In the end, I chose mushroom espuma, roast beef, and vacherin with lemon.

Other amenities

Besides Origin restaurant, Renaissance Republique also offers a full-service spa, gym, hot tub, and a bar with signature cocktails in the hotel lounge. My favorite thing to do at this hotel was to spend the evening in the giant jacuzzi, located on the bottom floor. You can also alternate between different sauna and steam rooms in the same spa area to reach ultimate relaxation.

The Renaissance Paris Republique welcomed me as a guest for three nights in exchange for this blog post and other promotions on Instagram and Facebook. I was also invited to dine at Origin Restaurant. Nonetheless, all opinions are my own.

    That looks like a really nice hotel, so chic! And the fact that it’s located in the city centre, not so far from tourist spots, is essential! Not sure where you captured that last shot of the city from a vantage point, but its gorgeous!

    This looks like the perfect hotel and it screams Paris! Paris is such a large city, so it is great to find a location that is within walking distance to so many major sights, all while maintaining great atmosphere. The restaurant Origin looks fantastic.

    Wow my heart is leaping with joy seeing your photos and reading your experience. This coming August, I’ll be in Paris for two weeks tour, and hope to achieve that unique Parisian experience. I will consider this hotel as well (although we will be staying at my friend’s place in the city).
