Located in a renovated 19th-century chapel across from the Jardin des Plants, this exceptional boutique hotel is more than just a place to lay your head, it’s a philosophy. “Sozo” means creation and imagination in Japanese; the driving force behind the hotel’s inception and its ongoing spirit. Guestrooms are small though extremely well appointed; each one features characteristics of the chapel from stained glass to pillars and arches. The room size matters less since the monumental foyer is the place to be. Enjoy a cocktail or take your turn at the grand piano, that is, unless it’s already occupied by a famous musician—the hotel is a favorite for visiting artists and performers. They’ve also recently added in a new sensorial experience spa which includes a sauna, hammam, ice room, and sensory shower which emits real Breton sea mist.
