NORDIC PLACES I WANT TO VISIT // FINNISH EXPERIENCE HOTEL KOTI IN PARIS

I have been eyeing out this place for a while, it simply is gorgeous and a great excuse for any Scandi lovers to take a trip to Paris.. The Koti hotel is a pop-up experience taking place in Paris for 100 days from January to May 2017 at the Institut Finlandais, a big sleepover in Finnish cabins!

The concept is simple; it’s a living art installation celebrating the Finnish home. There are 6 different cabins, during the day they are open to public viewing and in the evening they are available for guest to use. There is a daily schedule for all guests starting with quiet time & morning showers before a Finnish breakfast is served at a large communal table with specialities such as rye bread, salted butter and Finnish berries.

Getting back to nature in simple cabins can help us escape the busy everyday life and reconnect with family & friends. And the Finnish people are very good at just that, they like to enjoy frequent visits to the cabin as an essential part of everyday life. It really is a lovely way to relax and get away from the pressure and stress of daily life.

“Be our guest at Koti and escape the hectic pace of modern life. Savour the luxury of simplicity, the importance of home and the value of sharing unforgettable new experiences. Sleep in your very own cottage and indulge yourself with tranquility and communal hospitality right in the heart of Paris.” – Koti

You can book your stay through Airbnb. Because who wouldn’t want to have a sleepover in Finland, and waking up in Paris?
