A new wave of hotel openings means travelers are (even more) spoilt for choice when booking their next trip to Paris. Here are six of our favorite most fashionable new addresses to check into this fall.

Sinner Hotel

From the moment I heard about Sinner I was intrigued. In a bold move away from the usual Parisian apartment and Haussmann design references, the hotel has instead looked to the Catholic past of Paris’ Le Marais district for its inspiration. The result is a rather sexy and provocative mix of religious icons, stained glass windows, and opulent fabrics, with dark, lantern-lit corridors leading to luxurious guestrooms. Definitely one for couples, or an indulgent girls weekend away.

In the same spirit, guests can linger over cocktails with names such as “Crimson Heart” in the private salon, feast on a fusion of North African and South American cuisine in the restaurant, or enjoy cocooning spa treatments, a pool and hamman hidden behind a nail-studded door.

Oh la la!

Oh la la! is the latest addition to Paris’ now burgeoning budget hotel scene, and the city’s first hotel to be hidden behind a cocktail bar. While this is sure to be a hit with locals in the buzzy Bastille area, for travelers the main draw here is the affordable prices and the location; being placed right on Place de la Bastille is the perfect starting point for hopping around the city.

As to be expected from a more affordable option the décor is pared-back, but rooms are cleverly designed to feel cosy rather than cramped. Little luxuries such as generously-sized beds, tea from Tamia & and Julia, and L’Occitane bath products also add an extra touch of comfort.

Flanelles Hotel

Steps from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées, Flanelles risked being just another boutique design hotel, but its really made the effort to set itself apart from the competition. It still has a strong sense of style, each room is individually furnished with rich fabrics, sleek light fittings and custom artwork, but it’s the impressive attention to detail which really makes the difference here.

Breakfast is available all day to welcome travel-weary guests whatever time they arrive, bathrooms are stocked with full-size luxury products that you actually want to use, and my favourite feature – a private changing room and shower is on-hand for freshening up while your room is being prepared.

The hotel also encourages you to reserve the sauna, hamman, and salt room so you can enjoy the ultimate form of luxury – privacy.

Mama Shelter West

After launching its first ever hotel back in 2008, Mama Shelter is coming back to where it all began this summer with its second Paris address.

The hotel group has again opted for an off-the-beaten-track location, this time by the Porte de Versailles Expo centre, which at around 20 minutes from Paris centre, is more convenient than it first sounds.

Design-wise the brand has stuck to its now signature urban contemporary style and restaurant and rooftop offering, but what I’m excited about this time around is seeing Mama upping its game with new and more luxurious additions such as a sauna, gym, and chill out room.

J.K. Place Paris

In what looks set to be one of the biggest hotel launches this year, exclusive hotel group J.K. Place will finally be opening its first property outside of Italy on Paris’ chic Left Bank in time for the end-of-year holiday.

In typical J.K. Place style, no expense has been spared in the hotel’s 30 rooms and suites. Custom-designed furniture has been specially shipped in from Italy, antique treasures painstakingly sourced from Marché aux Puces, and the most beautiful marble bathrooms I’ve ever seen are decadently finished with mother of pearl. You’re even invited to help yourself to the minibar for free.

In the spa, pampering comes courtesy of Sisley, and get your reservations in now to snag a table at Casa Tua, which is sure to have Parisians queueing up for its famed Italian cuisine.

Already a favorite hangout with the locals of Paris’ 8th and 17th neighborhoods, the Ballu comes with an attractive leafy courtyard spot that’s perfect for al fresco dining.

Steps away from bustling Place the Clichy and the cocktail bars of Pigalle, the hotel has its own underlit bar that adjoins the Art Deco style restaurant where the chef rustles up hearty dishes of baked leek and roast chicken with crunchy vegetables.

Upstairs, the rooms come in block colors like midnight blue and mustard yellow, and many have their own balcony or terrace looking across at the honey-colored stone buildings on the street (go for room 51 for the prettiest outdoor space). And to unwind fully, there is a gem of a spa tiled in Art Nouveau mint green and cream hues that has a pool and sauna that hotel guests must book by the hour (complimentary).
