With just 14 deluxe rooms and six junior suites, some of which can be combined to form two-bedroom apartments, this boutique property at the foot of Montmartre is truly petite. The rooms, too, are small (though well-appointed), starting at a stingy 16 square metres. Heck, junior suites, at 25, are smaller than similarly priced standards at Costes or Le Royal Monceau. But everything, of course, isn’t about size.

The Maison Souquet is all about character and has it in spades. Like every other bar, restaurant and hotel around here in the hip SoPi district, it’s a former ‘pleasure house’ with a colourful past and plenty of personality. Interior design guru Jacques Garcia, the very antithesis of minimalism and less is more, has piled on layers to spare. It’s ostentatious, conceited and OTT but his fin de siècle concept works great here.

So as terrible as this hotel is for business or value for money, as terrific it is for a short stay where uniqueness is the priority. Facilities are few but worthwhile: the library bar is as cool as they come, the spa is splendid with a small pool and private time slots available for each room (book as soon as you can), and staff works hard to make up for any shortcomings. Unfortunately they can’t make your room any bigger.
