Those enamored of the artistic and literary history of Paris's Left Bank will appreciate this whimsical family-run hotel between Montparnasse and Luxembourg Gardens. The unique, multicolored decor was created by local artists and each room has a different theme—look for screen-printed curtains, ceiling-mounted artwork, and hand-painted walls. Rooms also feature a hydromassage shower or jacuzzi, and there is a wheelchair-accessible room on the ground floor. The trompe l'oeil painted facade reflects the gray shadow of an imaginary tree. 

Pros

  • Friendly, multilingual staff
  • Location on a quiet street in charming area
  • Close to métro

Cons

  • Modern, bright decor not for everyone
  • Little privacy with bathrooms opening up directly to rooms
