We had dreamed of it during the first lockdown: staying at the Hoy hotel (Home Of Yoga) in the ninth arrondissement of Paris. This place intrigued us as much as it made us want to speed up time. We imagined a peace haven, very bright and quiet rooms, and a restaurant, Mesa, offering top-notch plant-based cuisine. Well, we weren’t disappointed, quite the contrary.
Hoy welcomed us for one night during a 10 day stay in Paris. A very sweet parenthesis, in a room that was a true “cocoon” under the roofs. We all loved our quiet night, the bathroom mixing both mineral and natural aspects, but also the eco-friendly approach emphasized everywhere.
In the rooms of the Hoy Paris hotel, you can purify drinking water from the tap and the beauty products (available in large formats) are organic and made in France. No TV for a serene stay and a stretch bar to start the day. The decoration is minimalist, so you can totally relax.
We had the opportunity to try the Hoy Triple Retreat, spacious enough for the three of us. It has a double bed and a single bed.
Our family experience
Which room with a child?
At Hoy Paris, you have two options if you are staying with a child: the Hoy Triple Retreat (26-29 m2) and the Hoy Quadruple Friendly (24 m2) which can accommodate up to 4 people (there are four single beds (each one is 80 cm wide)). You can also opt for adjoining rooms, for an area of 36 m2.
The princess loved
She really liked the softness of the sheets and her little bed nestled under the roof. And the real plus? Waking up with a cute cat watching us from the window opposite! It was the most perfect morning!
On the plus side …
What about breakfast?
Breakfast at Hoy Paris is served at the Mesa restaurant. The French Breakfast consists of a croissant accompanied by fermented plant-based butter, honey, seasonal jam and pollen. The croissant is really delicious! You may prefer an even more gourmet breakfast with the purple pancakes to die for or the vanilla yogurt, fennel and olive oil granola, black tea poached pears. Pure happiness.
We’ll be back for …
We’ll be back for just about everything. The soothing atmosphere and the so adorable team, for the quiet rooms under the roof, but also (and above all) to enjoy, again and again, the delicious courses at Mesa restaurant. And then, also, to sit at the big table among flowers and plants, just to work in an inspiring atmosphere, perfect for creativity.
At the hotel
Hoy Paris is above all a place where people meet and is not called Home Of Yoga for nothing. Classes are offered to you by YUJ YOGA, the first French yoga studio in a heated room under infrared light. Do not hesitate to book a course when booking your room.
La Florería will allow you to discover the very beautiful arrangements of Chiaki Kokami. Workshops and events are organized upon request.
Close to your hotel
From Hoy Paris, we obviously recommend that you walk to the nearby Sacré-Coeur. A major tourist spot, the Butte Montmartre undoubtedly offers a very beautiful view of Paris. For us, it was an opportunity to start hunting Space Invaders. Devouring passion that may take us to improbable places in order to take pictures of mosaics … But what the princess wants …
Around 300 euros for one night in a Hoy Triple Retreat room, breakfast included.
