Bob Hotel by Elegancia
30 Rue Pernety, 75014 Paris, France


Good for:

  • Millennials who need people around them as they work with their headphones on and are too lazy to walk to a cafe.
  • People who want to nurse a champagne hangover with fresh baguettes, orange juice, and coffee during the morning  breakfast,*  which is served until 11 am, while lounging in front of a fireplace because, after all, this is Paris and its the only place starving artists and writers look good.
  • Couples who want to pretend they are Hemingway and Hadley circa the 1920s when people lived in Paris; “ate well and cheaply and drank well and cheaply and slept well and warm…and loved each other.”
  • Single people who want to love TF out of their bed and sleep a solid 8 hours as you did back in the 80s.
  • Families of all ages



Why I am IN2 Bob (Hotel):

  • He is always waiting for me late at night to unlock the door and welcome me back.
  • He speaks really good English and is happy with his job, which makes me happy to help him keep his job.
  • He doesn’t overcrowd his home with people bombarding you to carry a carry-on, and instead, he asks first if you need help.
  • He makes a bangin’ quiche.
  • The shower sparkles, as in literally there are stars when the lights are dimmed.
  • The neighborhood- Montparnasse 14th arrondissement
  • The “work lounge” has a fresh air garden feel. I wish there was a little more background noise as research proves some ambient noise improves productivity, but the fresh air does a brain good too.
  • The sauna is free and there is space downstairs to do a workout with a mat and physioball so you can turn all of those baguettes into a bootette.
  • French skincare products are available free in the room and downstairs in the spa- oooh lala!
  • Free smartphone with unlimited 4G internet so you don’t get lost after drinking too much champagne at Le Closerie de Lilas 
  • Co-working space is available by reservation if you need a quiet space to see clients virtually or hold a meeting.


If you go, tell Bob I say hi!**


*Breakfast is SOMETIMES free via deals
** Bob is not real, ok maybe Bob is real, but I do not know Bob, so if you go just tell the well-spoken guy at the reception that you read about Bob here and they will be happy to know this. 🙂
