Here you are in the Latin Quarter, Paris's oldest district and the hotel is also close to the bustle of St Germain des Prés. There are many bars and restaurants in the hotel's surrounding area - you will be spoilt for choice with certainly no shortage of quality restaurants. Book shops and cinemas abound, it's just up to you to discover them, as well as a few local sites to be visited such as Paris's most beautiful park: the Jardin du Luxembourg, or the Pantheon - the final resting place of some of France's most distinguished figures. A public car park is available nearby, which comes at extra cost, and the nearest underground station is St Germain des Prés.
This dream hotel's 39 guest rooms are divided into the following categories: Classique, Supérieure, Suite, Duplex? It's impossible not to mention 'the fresco room', probably the most beautiful in the whole arrondissement, oozing with France's history. Next, we more modestly focused on a 'Supérieure' room, which was quite spacious and airy, with simple decoration and quality materials looking out to the interior courtyard. Amenities include individual air-conditioning, free WiFi internet access and a stocked-up minibar. Room service is available until 3:00 am. Although they are not extravagant, the prices for this hotel are a little high for this category.
Magic! The building was originally the private mansion of King Louis XIV's architect and it has preserved its character. Once you have passed the entrance hall, you will be enchanted by the way rooms are set out, with long corridors leading to every little corner of the hotel and staircases leading to some other mysterious spots - a refined and intimate world will open to you if you are curious enough. A glorious little garden welcomes guests on warm days - how relaxing... You can have your breakfast served there if you wish to. The bar is open until 8:30pm and it serves both soft and alcoholic drinks. The hotel's general decoration is made up of the owner's private collection of furniture and objects.

Those looking for a cosy and traditional base on the outskirts of Saint-Germain-des-Prés will particularly appreciate the care that has gone into decorating the rooms here.
More than a mere nod to Maupassant's great account of an ambitious young man's climb through the social ranks to power in the 19th Century, Hotel Bel-Ami is not only named after the story; it is a direct ode to it. Firstly, it has a stunning location, in the very heart of the Saint Germain des Près district, at the centre of this bustling part of town, home to publishers, writers and actors with artistic flair. Secondly, it claims to have a direct link to the novel, bringing to life the sparkling charms of Paris. Fans of clean, uncluttered design should not be put off though, for despite its homage to the 19th Century author, the hotel has been spared any signs of 'Nouvel Empire' influences, eschewing it instead for a cool, modern design.
This hotel is ideally located in the very heart of St Germain des Prés.
The Lenox has managed to stay true to its Art Deco spirit despite some attractive modernisation work.
This hotel was built in an old medieval mansion which offers the charm of the Middle Ages as it is decorated in a traditional style, now combined with modern amenities.
This comfortable two-star hotel is located in a quiet part of the city but is nevertheless close to Saint Germain-des-Près and the banks of the Seine.
An ideally-located local 2* hotel.
The Manoir Saint-Germain stands opposite the Café de Flore and has a discreet little entrance which only serves to emphasize the elegance of its more distinguished neighbours. The hotel is done out in an intentionally traditional style and is part of the area's history, having since become a key meeting place for Americans passing through the city. This small, intimate establishment boasts friendly and accommodating staff (we kid you not!) and is like a French version of a Jane Austen-style house - very traditional yet romantic too, ideal for those who like this kind of thing.
This is a hotel full of French style in which no copies or reproductions will be tolerated. The Bristol is one of the few luxury hotels in Paris that belongs to a European family (German) rather than one of the great families of Asia or the United Arab Emirates. Stylish, classy and refined, the Bristol holds great importance in the quality and authenticity of its features and materials. Its gourmet restaurant attracts a demanding clientele that is fond of excellent cuisine.
The George V is one of the most prestigious Parisian palaces in the city. You barely have to cross the threshold before realising you are entering a hotel in which luxury, perfection and indulgence are the name of the game. Boasting rooms fit for a princess, impressive lounges and a Michelin-starred restaurant, the George V ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying even the most demanding of guests. The interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building in 1997, and has since then continued to make improvements to the decor in the 18th Century style.
The latest Parisian palace to open its doors on 1 August 2014. The French chic and sophistication goes perfectly with the Asian elegance in the magnificent building dating from 1908. This is the Peninsula Group's first hotel to open in France but also in Europe.
The latest Parisian luxury hotel, the Shangri-La will seduce a demanding clientele that will know how to appreciate the richly ornate Empire style of this particular hotel. Nothing more can be said about the lengths taken to find the materials, designs, and other accessories that contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the 19th century, while at the same time offering the comfort and modernity of the 21st century. This extremely shiny and ornate Empire style may scare away some potential guests, however, it is still a real privilege to stay in this residence previously owned by a prince, the great nephew of Napoleon.
It took five Haussmanian buildings to bring the Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme into existence, and it is the first luxury hotel in Paris to be designed in a contemporary fashion. Comfort, style and impeccable service all come together here in a younger, more modern setting.
The Meurice is one of Paris's best addresses. With its contemporary yet quintessentially Parisian décor realised by great names such as Stark and his daughter. The Meurice is an exclusive haunt. the hotel's main restaurant, Le Meurice, is headed by 3 Michelin star Chef Yannick Alléno which is, needless to say, one of the highlights of a stay at the hotel. In a fantastic location right opposite the Jardin des Tuileries, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the service is impeccable.
Inaugurated on 28 February 2012, the W Paris - Opera has finally opened in the City of Light. The Starwood brand linked to fashion and trends thus has its own prestigious establishment in Paris.
Nestled in a 19th century building, the hotel is in a great location. Design and modernity, with a conceptual touch, all come together here. Its designer is in the best position to explain why, since we're not sure it's really clear otherwise, but the W Paris-Opera is centred around the theme The Spark. The establishment thus defines itself as a "spark", creating a fictitious connection between the very first W hotel in New York and its newest sibling in Paris.
At the heart of the Opera district, the W can already rely on its guests who are fans of the brand and hopes that word of mouth will make it the place to be in the area; not just for its rooms but for its restaurant and bar as well.
Confidentiality is the order of the day at this very upmarket establishment, perfect for VIPs looking for a little discretion, and private events are also held here.
