Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
C.O.Q Hotel – an acronym for Community of Quality – is a slick boutique hotel and an aptly named one at that. Set down in the 13th arrondissement in an up-and-coming part of town, this beautifully designed boutique hotel offers you some serious design bang for your buck with cool, contemporary vibes offset by fab retro features.
Back to the acronym and this idea of ‘community’ – there’s a warm feel to the place helped along by charming staff and ample communal areas. Located just outside Paris' centre, you're well-placed to enjoy the buzz of the city whilst also getting some peace and quiet at the day's end.
In the mornings, head to the hotel's chic café where a breakfast buffet is served – including eggs from the hotel's own chickens (yes, really). At night, the café transforms into a lively bar where you can enjoy a wide range of cocktails and local beers.
What we loved...
With its dark walls, eclectic art collection and location off the beaten track - there's a decidedly cool vibe to COQ Hotel. Be sure to order the hotel's speciality 'oeuf à la coque' for breakfast!

Rooms are on the cosy side but with their richly painted walls, warm lighting details and merino wool throws, you’ll not be left wanting. Bathrooms are crisp and modern, with some featuring big rainfall showers.
Whilst the area immediately around the hotel is somewhat underwhelming, the villagey Butte-aux-Cailles is a 15-minute walk away and the gorgeous Jardin des Plantes just a 10-minute walk away. There are also great transport links to explore further afield with many of the sights an easy metro ride away.
