There's something just a bit naughty in the air at this eccentric and opulent boutique hotel. Is it the history as an 18th-century pavillion d'amour (inn for trysts)? Is it that in 1900, Oscar Wilde permanently checked out in Room 16? Or Jacques Garcia's more recent makeover—rooms done in yards of rich fabrics in colors like ruby red and emerald green? It could be all of the above, plus the intimate bar and restaurant that allows you to mingle with the Parisian beau monde. A exposed stone grotto holds a countercurrent pool and steam room. Michelin-starred chef Julien Monbabut runs the kitchen of Le Restaurant with an outstanding menu of light and classic French cuisine.
Intimate Left Bank Hideaway
Although quite unassuming from the outside, this tiny boutique hotel, where Oscar Wilde famously spent his last days, is strikingly opulent in every detail. Each of the 20 rooms has a different theme, from Far East to Art Deco, and all are richly appointed with antique furnishings, ornate artworks, and sensual fabrics. Guests can mingle with local gallery owners and artists in the low-lit lounge bar, or dine on fine French cuisine in the Michelin-starred Le Restaurant. A secluded pool and steam room in the vaulted stone cellar is available for private sessions.
