Tucked away from the traffic and crowds of Avenue de l'Opéra, Hotel Thérèse, named after the wife of Louis XIV, is a stone's throw from regal sites like the Louvre, Palais Royal, and the historic Comédie Française theater. The five-floor hotel offers plenty of old-world charm with its low ceilings and wrought-iron details; ambient lighting, contemporary furnishings, and amenities like flat-screen TVs, minibars, and personal safes bring things up to date. The "retro
chic" design is noticeable when entering the elegant lobby, where you can sip an apéritif at the bar/lounge, browse the hotel's selection of custom-scented candles, or chat with the young, friendly staff. Walk around the quarter—you'll notice the congregation of Japanese restaurants, proximity to shops, and ease to access major tourist sites.
