Most hotels today offer guests much more than just a place to rest their head. Nonetheless a great night's sleep is a crucial component to a positive experience.

Those travelers seeking peace and quiet should look no further than Paris' Hotel Regina, otherwise known as the world's quietest hotel.

During its first annual award ceremony last month, the Europe-based Quietroom Foundation named Hotel Regina the overall winner of its 2015 Quiet Hotel Award.

"The hotel is situated in a busy area, all its rooms have qualified for the QR-label and the hotel scores high on all the other criteria," the foundation stated in a press release. QR stands for Quiet Room designation and is a label awarded to hotels that meet the foundation's noise (or lack thereof) standards.

With plenty of noise to combat, Hotel Regina has gone the extra mile to earn the impressive distinction. After all, the hotel boasts soundproofed rooms.

And for guests also looking to avoid the light in the morning, the hotel offers blackout curtains and drapes.

"If you are looking for a lively, hotel scene, The Regina is not for you," states one guest review from "If you are looking for a quiet, centrally located, beautiful, old world style, Parisan hotel, you won't be disappointed with The Regina."

The foundation also awarded three other quiet hotels. The four-star Swissotel Amsterdam won for the city category, the Hilton Paris Orly Airport won for the airport category and the Netherlands' four-star Hotel Dux won for design and build.
