My trip to Paris was made complete by a luxury stay at La Maison Favart. Located in the upscale 2nd arrondissement, this elegant boutique hotel was a welcome sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life. Steeped in fascinating history, an appreciation of its origins made my stay all the richer.

Here’s an inside look into the memorable experience my husband and I enjoyed at La Maison Favart.

Hotel History

Although this elegant and refined 39-bedroom property includes beautiful contemporary touches, its traditional charm actually stems from a fascinating history. Dating back to 1824, La Maison Favart is one of the oldest establishments remaining in Paris today.

It was named after the most famous couple in the history of Parisian theatre, Charles-Simon Favart and Justine Favart, who established the popularity of the Opéra-Comique in the 18th century. The colorful spirit of Monsieur Favart, a French dramatist, and Madame Favart, his actress/singer/dancer wife, could be felt throughout the property.


Located directly next to The Opéra-Comique in the 2nd arrondissement, La Maison Favart felt comfortably separate from overcrowded tourist hotspots, yet offered easy access to some major sites.

In fact, hotel guests can conveniently access three subway lines and eight bus lines within a brief one-block radius.

The property is just a stone’s throw from the Opera Garnier and only a fifteen minute walk from the famous Louvre Museum, making it an ideal compromise for those looking for solitude without the feeling of isolation.

First Impressions

Upon entering, we were immediately greeted by a friendly staff member who generously offered us a fresh beverage and quickly assisted with our luggage. We enjoyed stimulating conversation and he made himself readily available to us should we have any questions about the hotel or the surrounding area.

After relaxing for a moment in the lobby and taking in the beautiful decor, we were offered a tour of the charming breakfast bar and honesty bar before being escorted to our room.

The Room

We were pleased to be shown to a very spacious room, something that can be difficult to come by in a Parisian hotel, boutique or otherwise.

Aptly named La Costumière to pay homage to actress Justine Favart, our street-facing room offered an unrivaled view of the famous Opéra-Comique.

With just one look out the gigantic window, it felt as though we were VIP guests, reclining in a spacious theater box with front-row seats to the show.

No detail was amiss in this room, from the velvet touches, to the towel heating rack, to the beautifully-branded soaps.

Amenities & Services

At La Maison Favart, hospitality is the focal point. A concierge service is available 24/7 so that guests may enjoy constant, personalized attention. In the evening, a lovely member of the staff came by to offer cookies, which lent a very homey touch.

My favorite amenity was, without a doubt, the plunge pool located in the well-being area.

Devoted to bodily and spiritual well-being, this area offered a sanctuary of peace and relaxation. The entranceway leading up to the pool area is lined with relaxing LED candles, creating a comforting atmosphere.

In addition to the plunge pool, they also offer a sauna and fitness room for total body wellness.

The hotel also includes a cozy breakfast bar as well as an honesty bar, where guests may help themselves to wine or other refreshments throughout the day and simply record their names.

The library lounge and garden room located just off of the main lobby offered a relaxing environment to unwind from city life, enjoy the company of others, or curl up with a good book.
