In the bustling Saint-Germain district yet a short walk from the Ile de la Cité, this three-star hotel offers guests a civilised ambience with ancient stone walls in an 18th-century building, antique furniture and furnishings. Its 25 comfortable bedrooms are all different but many have traditional toile de Jouy décor. The smaller standard rooms overlook a courtyard to the rear of the hotel, and those on upper floors have a small balcony, while the larger deluxe rooms face on to the Avenue Dauphine. There is a vaulted breakfast room in the basement, and a lounge area near reception on the ground floor. Modern amenities include a lift, airconditioning and wifi. Families will enjoy exploring the quirky shops of the rue de Buci and children can practise their French in the market in the rue de Seine, since the staff speak English fluently.
