In anticipation of a future Parisian escapade, choosing an address in the heart of Paris will contribute to the quality of the stay, look no further, I present to you the Hotel Favart in the 2nd district and close to all amenities. You will thank me!
PRESENTATION OF THE HOTEL FAVART PARIS
The history of La Maison Favart goes back to the 18th century and more precisely to 1824, which makes it one of the oldest establishments in the city of Paris!
The Maison Favart owes its name to a couple whose love relationship linked them to the Opéra Comique: Charles-Simon and Justine Favart. He was an author and librettist and she an actress and dancer.
At the Favart Hotel, you feel at home, no doubt thanks to the very warm and welcoming staff. The many armchairs in the lobby lounge are perfect for relaxing or taking a reading break. There is even a secluded corner with a fireplace and library. It's very warm.
LOCATION AND PRACTICAL INFORMATION
The Hotel Favart is located in the 2nd district of Paris at the foot of the Opera Comique, more precisely in the Grands Boulevards (Haussmann) district.
Address: 5 rue de Marivaux 75002 PARIS
Within a 10-minute radius of the hotel, you will find the Opéra Garnier, the Grand Rex, the Musée Grévin, the Galeries Lafayette, Printemps Haussmann and the Place Vendôme. But also many passages like the Panoramas which are full of restaurants! Yet the hotel and its location remain considerably quiet.
Numerous cafés, restaurants and local shops surround the Hotel Favart, offering a typically Parisian neighborhood life. It's the ideal pied à terre if you believe all these assets!

DID YOU SAY ROOM WITH A VIEW ?
I invite you to discover the Deluxe room n°37 located on the 3rd floor. Is the fact that it is called "The 4 parts of the world" a coincidence? It couldn't be a better match for me! As an avid traveler, I saw it as a sign! Aspiring travelers should also appreciate it.
With a surface area of 19m², it is a perfectly arranged room that offers itself to you before discovering the view of the Opéra Comique. It is simply striking! Impossible to leave the curtains closed as it is pleasant to observe it.
Luminous, it is especially the decoration that one observes hardly entered inside. A decoration where the materials are mixed. From the toile de Jouy through the velvet to the fineness of the satin, the colors and the warm tones used are in perfect harmony. From the paintings to the furniture, everything is harmonious and here it is the blue that characterizes this warm and intimate Deluxe room.
The comfort of the Deluxe room is directly linked to the high quality bedding. The firm mattress and soft cushions guarantee a good night's sleep. And after a good day of walking in the capital, this is essential!
The strengths of the Deluxe room are characterized by the double glazing that ensures good sound insulation, manually adjustable air conditioning, good quality Wifi but also the layout of the furniture. The desk is equipped with an iPhone station. The flat screen TV offers a free movie library. This is enough to spend a good night's sleep.
A point of honor is given to the objects that make up the room: mirrors, armchairs, chairs, lamps, paintings, cushions, curtains, lighting ... everything is harmonious. It's busy, it's beautiful, it's unique and it's what represents Maison Favart!
The closet acts as a dressing room with a large closet, drawers and places for shoes. It is even possible to slip in your carry-on suitcase. It's nice to be able to empty your stuff in a dedicated and spacious space.
Gourmet minibar and courtesy tray are hidden in the closet. Pascal Hamour Paris tea, Nespresso coffee and a bottle of Evian water are offered free of charge. Room service is available from 5pm to midnight.
In the bathroom, we appreciate its equipment and cleanliness. The Maison Favart toiletries, velvet bathrobes and matching slippers are provided free of charge. Not to mention the hair dryer and the bathroom scale.
The decoration is neat, the faucets and the choice of black furniture bring character to the rather white room. The rain shower is spacious and glassed in. I'm always influenced by the bathrooms when I choose a hotel, aren't you?
The Hotel Favart offers other room categories: classic, suite, duplex or even the 75m² Petite Maison Favart! Take a look at the rooms before making your choice on their website. There is something for everyone, so you can be surprised the next time you stay.
BREAKFAST IN BED, THAT'S LIFE AND IT'S FREE!
When it's time for breakfast, you'll have the choice between going downstairs to the breakfast room or having it in your room and even better in bed. Which team are you part of anyway?
For the first option, the one I usually choose, it is a warm room with the buffet on one side and the tables and benches on the other. The baroque style furniture combined with the candy pink of the benches make the room very warm.
The buffet offers a large choice of fresh pastries (croissants, pains au chocolat, apple turnovers, raisin breads), fresh bread, fruit, dairy products, cold cuts, salmon, cheese, cereals, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages... It's quite complete and sufficient in terms of choice.
As for drinks, coffee, tea or hot chocolate lovers will be served! The hot chocolate was very good. Various fruit juices, including orange juice, to finish this breakfast on a vitamin note.
But back to the fact that I opted for the in-room breakfast. At the beginning of this sunny day and still with this magnificent view on the Opéra Comique, a royal tray was delivered to me!
Beforehand, you will choose the products you want to eat by filling out a specific form. The choice will necessarily be less wide than in the dining room, but already quite sufficient.
It is a large silver tray very refined and entirely composed of sweet products that I share with you. Writing these few lines already takes me back to this beautiful memory that represents the best moment of the day in my opinion!
Special mention for the delicious breakfast composed of fresh quality products. It is a faultless! The yoghurts come from a farm in Yvelines.
Reminder: for any online reservation with the Hotel La Maison Favart, you can benefit from the free breakfast by using the promotional code "Favartbliss" . Allow yourself this gourmet privilege 😉
TAKE A BREAK AT THE HONESTY BAR IN THE AFTERNOON
Open from 3pm to midnight, it is possible to take a break on the first floor of the Favart Hotel. Honesty Bar offers various refreshments with or without alcohol. Wines and spirits but also strong alcohol.
Recently, it is even possible to make your own cocktail with the available kit. This allows you to have a good time while contributing to the elaboration of your cocktail by being creative.
And throughout the day, coffee and tea are available free of charge in the hotel lobby. In the afternoon, there is a cake to enjoy with your drink. During my stay, for example, one day it was an apple cake and then another one with pistachio. Delicious moment guaranteed! Nespresso coffee and tea Pascal Hamour Paris.
FITNESS, RELAXATION AND WELLNESS
The wellness area is completely free for hotel guests.
Before thinking about relaxation, my advice: start with the hardest part with the fitness room equipped with Technogym equipment. Treadmills and elliptical bikes to keep in shape.
In this area dedicated to sports, there are lockers, towels and water bottles available.
Then, as they say, after the sport the comfort! Let's go to the relaxation bath. A small pool with waterfalls and mirrors. You must take advantage of this wellness area with its subdued light. Toilets and a shower are available in this wellness area. Private space on request.
Then we attack the relaxation part, direction the sauna for some minutes. There too, towels are available and the space is prepared and cleaned between each customer.
What if you tried the free massage waterbed? The benefits of the waterbed will make your aches and pains go away! A session is automatically programmed for 20 minutes. It's a very pleasant sensation! The room is cozy and is designed to change or repackage you.
CALL ON THE CONCIERGE SERVICE
To personalize your stay and make it even more memorable, you can call on Vincent, concierge member of the National Union Les Clefs d'Or. Representing excellence, he will be able to respond to any request, even the most demanding, 24 hours a day thanks to his professionalism and his interpersonal skills.
MY PERSONAL OPINION
Beyond its ideal location for getting around and visiting Paris, the hotel La Maison Favart offers all the advantages that we are looking for. A warm and careful welcome, a magnificent room with a view of the little-known Opéra Comique, the absolute comfort of the bedding and an unforgettable gourmet breakfast, especially if you enjoy it in your room! Without forgetting the privilege of having been able to benefit from the wellness area to relax after the effervescence of Paris. Feeling as good as at home thanks to the attentive staff is the guarantee of a successful stay.
In conclusion, if you are a fan of good addresses, this one amply fulfills all the criteria that one expects from a 4* hotel with a family history as a bonus.
