Expert review of Hôtel de l'Abbaye

A gorgeous St-Germain hotel, true Parisian chic.

Set at the back of a cobbled entrance courtyard, the Hôtel de l'Abbaye once formed part a monastery. Today it epitomises civilised St-Germain: chic but not snooty and standing out for its welcoming service and refined, private house feel. Rather than seeming disorganised, the rather eclectic design – a modern painting here, an Old Master there – gives it a genuinely homely fee.

Location: 

A very central yet calm Left Bank location on a side street, well placed between St-Germain, Montparnasse and the Jardins du Luxembourg.

Bedrooms: 

Even the 28 Classic bedrooms are all different, with indivually chosen fabrics and works of art, while the eight spacious Deluxes have room for a sofa and spacious marble bathrooms with separate bath and shower. Four Junior Suites offer the dilemma between modern upstairs rooms with sleek wooden panelling and romantic traditional ground-floor suites with their own private conservatory. For a special treat, though, I'd choose one of the four Duplexes, each with a pretty living room with a fireplace, balcony and a stairway up to the bedroom.

Public areas: 

For me, these are the hotel's real plus – a series of ground-floor salons where you'd actually want to spend time: a drawing room at the front with log fire, a panelled bar with Empire style lamps and furniture, a conservatory and a decent-sized courtyard garden with fountain and tables.

Eating and drinking: 

There's a quiet bar for clients and, although there's no restaurant, light meals can be served downstairs or in your room. Continental breakfast (for once included in the room price) is served overlooking the garden.

Service: 

Attentive service lifts this hotel into the 4 star category, offering all the bag carrying and restaurant bookings you need yet with the welcoming touch and personal attention of a small hotel.
