Arrival: 0915 CDG QR35

There’s nothing like checking into your room after a 24 hour flight. Especially if your stopover was Doha and you’ve just arrived at Hôtel Emile  in the heart of the historical Marais district of Paris.

A stylish boutique hotel designed by Alfred Klopper, the hotel is styled with contrasted tones of black, white and dark greens and dressed with geometrically-patterned Cole and Son wallpapers. 

This weekend will be a big tick in the life box.
