It is such a treat and a privilege to enjoy the beauty of Paris from above, sitting on your own private terrace with a view on the rooftops, the Tour Eiffel or the Grand Palais. Yet this is something you can definitely get at Le Pavillon des Lettres, a 26-room boutique hotel sitting just a stone's throw away from the Champs Elysées in the heart of the city.
 
The name is easily explained: le Pavillon is literary-inspired, with each room and suite dedicated to a different letter of the alphabet – and in turn a great writer from European literary history. From A for Andersen (Hans Christian) through to Z for Zola (Emile) – via B for Baudelaire, H for Hugo, S for Shakespeare and more – each room holds its writer integral to the design, with lines from poetry, prose and novels inscribed on the walls.
 
Recently, the hotel even introduced a "literary room service menu", allowing guests to choose among a a selection of volumes ranging from classic novels by some of the writers who lend their names to the bedroom doors of the hotel to photographic books on art and architecture, style guides, and tomes about French fashion icons.
 
Yet Le Pavillon is not all about literature: its refinement extends to the decor and the cosy atmosphere, dominated by dusky nuances ranging from black to light brown and chocolate and plush velvet sofas and chairs in brighter colors. But the height of luxury at Le Pavillon is epitomised by the picture-perfect views over the rooftops of Paris to the Eiffel Tower that you can enjoy from its two top-floor suites - definitely as Parisian chic as it gets.
