Located a stone's throw from the Grands Magasins and theOpera, in the heart of the 9th arrondissement, theHotel Chouchou opened its doors at the beginning of 2020 in place of the Richmond Opéra, under the impetus of the Elegancia group, which also owns the charming and oh so confidential Hotel Seven.
With 63 rooms, including 3 suites, and above all 4 sparkling stars, theChouchou Hotel reveals all the classic codes of theParisian apartment : beautiful moldings on the ceiling, a herringbone parquet floor that creaks slightly underfoot, charming velvet armchairs to rest your eyes in the dark, very chic checkered earthenware in the bathroom, or a bed linen set with a sailor's stripe to imagine yourself on a weekend at the sea.
Ideal for couples, the pretty rooms of the Chouchou hotel have all the necessary comfort to spend a moment of softness, far from the tumult of the city, starting with very good quality bedding, and in the bathroom - in some rooms - a bathtub big enough to welcome two lovers, but also the most modern Japanese toilet.
While the 3 suites inspired by icons of French song - Gainsbourg, Edith Piaf and Boris Vian - are located under the roof of the hotel and offer a view of the corner of the Opéra Garnier, some rooms overlook the courtyard and allow us to contemplate from above the joyous bazaar that takes place under the large glass roof where, from Thursday to Sunday, a live music program is held to discover new talents in the song world. We reassure you right away: the rooms are perfectly soundproofed, and once the window is closed, it is impossible to suspect what is going on on the first floor!
And precisely, in the common areas too, theChouchou hotel offers nice things. Accessible through the hotel's golden mirror entrance, but also through a dedicated entrance on rue du Helder, the hotel's large glass roof is home to a market/bar/guinguette with a land (with La Grande Bouffe) and sea (with La Mer à Boire) offer that will make food lovers swoon.
On the menu, a made in France menu of fresh products direct from the producers: oysters from Brittany, galettes-saucisses, charcuterie and cheese boards, clams, lobster rolls. And to accompany it all, a multitude of enchanting cocktails, just toast with friends or lovers to the sound of live music.
It is also in this large room bathed in daylight that breakfast is served, with sweet treats, pastries, brioche, fresh bread, fruit salad and pancakes, and savory wonders - cold cuts, cheeses, boiled eggs - for those who love them; the ideal way to start the day after a good night's sleep in the hotel.
Finally, to be pampered, we go to the three baths with different atmospheres that can be rented by the hour!
