Couple of weeks ago, my husband and I checked spontaneously into the loveliest little hotel in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés for two nights. Well, maybe the fact that my nephew was staying with us with his girlfriend (in our tiny little parisian apartement) made the decision rather logical then spontaneous, we were so excited to experience a little staycation in hotel Le Saint.

This wasn't the first time we've spend the night in a hotel in our own city and I truly believe that doing something like this from time to time is a great way to relax, fell even more in love with your own city and feel like being on a holiday (especially when you're not going on one). 

I knew from the beginning that I wanted to stay in the 6th! It's one of my favourite arrondissements in Paris for strolling, people watching while sipping on a cup of coffee, doing shopping or drinking cocktails with friends (not to mention plenty of good restaurants in the area). Le Saint was a perfection! Friendly staff, cozy room with a view overlooking the stunning Haussmann buildings and its balconies, excellent breakfast in the morning and to my excitement, every guest could use their bicycles free of charge (which I highly recommend). 

Don't be afraid to book a place to stay in your own city, it might sound strange at first but if you're not going away during summer, it might be just what you need. xx
