This Floating Hotel Is the Most Relaxing Place to Stay in Paris

The City of Lights is known for being home to some of the most famous historic beauties, like the Arc de Triomphe and the Notre Dame. But we have a hunch this new, modern "floatel" is about to make a serious name for itself amongst the French capital's traditional attractions. It's called "Off Paris Seine" and is the very first floating hotel on the Seine.

Coming in at 262-feet-long and 65-feet-wide, the vessel was designed by architect Gérard Ronzatti. It was then built in Rouen, Normandy before being tugged down the river to it's current home in Paris and reportedly cost over $10 million to build. Inside, there are 54 rooms and four unique suites, which were designed by interior designers Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman.

On the deck, guests can dip into the U-shaped plunge pool, then sip on cocktails and munch on tapas at the floating bar while taking in the famous water views. And since it's anchored near the historic Austerlitz station, which is down the street from Notre-Dame and the trendy Marais neighborhood, tourists are still close to some of the most sought-after sights in the city.
