Checking in at this chic boutique Left Bank stay is akin to a trip to Wonderland, all neon-bright colors, gleaming surfaces and unexpected details. Designer Sybille de Margerie, whose imprimatur is also on icons like Hôtel de Crillon, has pulled out the stops in her re-styling of this classic Parisian coach house in the funky Latin Quarter. Each room is inspired by its own historical epoch, from Medieval to 1970s Paris, and features textiles and wallpapers in luxe textures like silk and velvet by Lelièvre and Pierre Frey. A tranquil terrace, meanwhile, offers a more traditional take on Parisian style (think wrought iron café chairs), the perfect spot for café au lait and croissants before hitting the Quartier.
In the Area
You’re within sashaying distance of one of Paris’s most beautiful public spaces, the 60-acre Luxembourg Gardens, so take a stroll along its serene pathways before checking out the magnificent domed Pantheon, which offers a historic crypt along with breathtaking views over the city from the dome’s colonnade. Get a taste of risque old Paris at the iconic Crazy Horse, an avant garde cabaret operating since the 1950s. Finally, sate your sweet tooth at a classic patisserie like Carla Marletti or drop by the Catherine Deneuve-decorated Le Salon du Pantheon tea house.
How to Get There
My mom, 1 year old baby and I stayed for 2 nights. Great location for kids being near 2 parks and a nice walk to/along the seine. The staff at reception were lovely, even brought us tea to our room.
Only pity was lots of restaurants and cafes were closed-staff informed us this is the usual holiday time in France. But there were still lots of options.
I decided on this hotel after reading all of the reviews. It was such a nice hotel in a great location in the Latin Quarter. I'm a single mom and went with my 9 y.o. son. We could just walk out the door and head north on Rue St. Jacques and explore and wander from there. The rooms were small but that's what's to be expected in Paris. Finally the staff were so welcoming, friendly and very helpful.
My daughter and I stayed here for a week and had a great time. A little further than I wanted to be, but a great choice for the price. It was clean, the staff was so nice and it is very cute. We had breakfast in the mornings that was just fine. The desk staff was happy to help with directions and any arrangements that we needed. The room was clean and the air worked great. There was a little maintenance that needed to be done, but overall, very nice. The water pressure in the shower was fantastic and the bed was comfortable.
