Exposed stone walls and original wooden beams give this 16th-century building typical Rive Gauche character, and designer Jacques Garcia's generous use of striped taffeta curtains, velvet upholstery, and plush carpeting imbues it with the distinct luxury of St-Germain-des-Prés. Several small rooms decorated with comfy armchairs and Asian antiques make up the lobby, where you can help yourself to a continental buffet breakfast in the morning and an honesty bar throughout
the day. Rooms with flat-screen TVs and L'Occitane toiletries are decorated in eggplant and caramel. Those overlooking the street have more space and double windows for soundproofing.

My wife and I stayed here five nights in late April, early May, 2010 because of the Fodor's recommendation. The superior double room that faced the street was quiet, the room very clean, and the hotel staff was eager to please and helped with restaurant reservations, cabs and/or directions. The petit dejeuner (breakfast) had nunerous choices that we felt was worth the 14E/person price. The location of hotel is central to the main tourist areas
and metro (Odeon).
