Although a more concise guide will be coming up on the blog tomorrow with plenty of new addresses to add for any upcoming visits to the city- I can safely say The Hoxton was a total treat from start to finish. Walking through the inside/outside cobbled reception and past the al-fresco dining patio- it felt like a bit of a quiet haven amongst the midst of horns and scooters outside.
Dropping our cases off into our rooms, we made quick work of scarpering downstairs to see some of the city by foot- and trust me when I say Paris in the Autumn is just as beautiful as you’d imagine. With trees turning fiery shades of orange and a slight bite in the air appearing when you’d least expect (handy when half of your suitcase is wool)- where else would you rather enjoy the season than kerbside in a cafe with bowls of crusty bottomless bread? With stops to Merci and Acne on the agenda (although I can assure you my purse remained zipped tightly shut) we ended the day with a cab back to the hotel and supper at The Hoxton’s very own Rivié- excited for day 2 of our Parisan adventure!
