Paris’s Floating Hotel Just Opened And It’s As Awesome As You’d Expect

Ooh la la.

We were all aboard when the news broke that Paris was planning a floating hotel on the river Seine because hello, the expansive canals of Paris’ Seine River are just ripe for a little floatel action.

So with the news that that same hotel has finally opened its doors, we were keen to a look inside.

The Off Paris Seine was converted from an old catamaran, and is moored in the ultra cool 13th arrondissement in central Paris. The eco-chic building includes 54 rooms, four suites and a 400 square-metre terrace on the river bank. The pièce de résistance however is the 15-metre plunge pool. Wowee.

And it’s not just hotel guests that can revel in its beauty up close – the poolside bar area is open from 5pm to 1am daily with cocktails and tapas on menu.

The entire structure is painfully stylish too, with a distinct air of Parisian flair.
