#1 Maison Souquet
Only those in the know will experience the luxury of the Maison Souquet, hidden behind an understated facade signaled by two red lanterns. The bawdy, wanton legend of the City of Light was forged in the area around Montmartre, a legend of which the Maison Souquet now forms the part. In a building that served as a pleasure house during the Belle Epoque, one of the most lavish and licentious pages in the history of Paris has been brought to life. Jacques Garcia has applied his talent to recreating the mystery, elegance, exoticism, sensuality, and ostentatious luxury of these establishments with their own architectural mores. Carried away from the city on the whimsy of the decor, the mind is free to pursue pleasure amid a fantasy setting conjured through artwork, sofas, caucuses, and divans. Perfectly at home, guests see their room open out onto a plush setting where life revolves around the ritual of tea-time, play, and rendezvous before and after dinner.
What Reviewers Say: “This hotel is fantastic. The decor is amazing – service is first class. Very personal and intimate – all staff know your name and do their utmost to make your stay special. Spa area great and the location was brilliant too. Breakfast in bed was wonderful – an excellent stay – we will be back.”

What Reviewers Say: “During our stay at Lani’s, we really felt like home and all the staff was amazing, we did not have to worry about anything. We enjoyed the clean and fresh design of the room, the furniture, the comfort of the details (pillows, sheets, shower, etc.) and it was all the time perfectly clean. The food was absolutely incredible: the freshness of the ingredients was unbelievable. Lani’s is a pearl in Puerto del Carmen: we recommend this hotel for relaxing and experiencing romantic holidays.

The hotel feels like the perfect mix between a resort and a bed and breakfast. It was tranquil and absolutely beautiful…the views are amazing. You’ll never want to leave your balcony unless it’s to go lay by the pool. We were treated to many thoughtful surprises from the staff that made our experience magical and romantic.
