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 hotel and an aptly named one at that. Set down in the 13th arrondissement in an up-and-coming part of town, this 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.
In the mornings, head to the chic café where a breakfast buffet is served – including eggs from the hotel's own chickens (yes, really). At night, the area 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!

The cosy rooms have richly painted walls, warm lighting, and merino wool throws – you’ll not be left wanting. Bathrooms are crisp and modern, with some featuring big rainfall showers.
The villagey Butte-aux-Cailles is a 15-minute amble away, and the gorgeous Jardin des Plantes is just a 10-minute stroll from the hotel. There are also great transport links to explore further afield with many of the sights an easy metro ride away, or walkable if you don't mind wandering on foot.
