The Left Bank needed JK Place Paris. From the moment you walk into the hotel it feels different – like you’re truly walking into a private home. And in some ways, you are. There’s so much to love from the immaculate decor and attentive service to the perfect location and well-appointed rooms.
JK Place Paris is the first JK Place property outside of Italy and bound to become an instant-favorite Parisian boutique hotel. Upon walking in, you’ll discover several cozy common spaces to relax and take in the lovely interiors.
Designer Michele Bonan scoured the Paris Flea Markets to find pieces to outfit the Left Bank hotel and the results are fabulous. From a pair of Hermès lamps flaking the downstairs fireplace to perfectly placed ceramic accent pieces and an extensive collection of books for the browsing, no detail was overlooked. These effortless decorative touches help to make JK Place Paris truly feel like a home.
Rooms and Suites
The 29 rooms (13 of which are suites) range in size from extra large to more normal in size. All are large by Parisian hotel standards, and for the most part feature gorgeous wooden walk-in closets. JK Place Paris thoughtfully conserved original decorative elements like mirrors and Versailles parquet flooring while providing maximum modern comfort and amenities.
You’ll see common fabrics and furniture pieces throughout the hotel used in different ways and for different items. The buttery-soft JK Place Paris cashmere throw blankets are my favorite touch.
Casa Tua and The Bar
JKPlace Paris boasts a Casa Tua restaurant open for breakfast for guests and for lunch and dinner for guests outside of the property as well. Green accents, black and white tiled floors, and pops of bright ceramics add a hint of Italy to this Parisian property. The light and bright Casa Tua connects to a courtyard that will soon feature an outdoor fireplace. Again, the attention to detail is evident everywhere.
I returned after my initial visit for a drink at the bar. I not only loved my perfectly-made margarita, but I also loved the quiet and intimate atmosphere. It feels like a secret that hasn’t gotten out…yet.
The Sisley Spa and Gym
For a hotel of its size in Paris, a spa and gym are certainly not a given. However, JK Place Paris has both including an indoor swimming pool.
The Sisley Spa will only be open to guests of the hotel as to maintain the intimate spirit and atmosphere of the property. There are two treatment rooms each with their own bathroom. The gym features brand-new Technogym equipment and the wooden walls were meant to evoke feelings of being inside a Riva boat. It’s not often that I would describe a hotel gym as beautiful, but this gym is truly is.
JK Place Paris is a great option for families of various sizes, couples, and individual travelers who prefer the spirit and charm of the Left Bank. The hotel is steps from the Seine River, Musée d’Orsay, and Boulevard Saint-Germain.
