Expert review of Hotel Design de la Sorbonne

An ever-so-Parisian design hotel in miniature.

This longstanding budget address recently had a brilliant designer makeover with a witty Neo-Baroque edge. Whereas some modern design hotels feel rather impersonal, here I love the way that they have recreated a sense of the hotel's past, with framed period photos in the corridors of staff who used to work here, seen in picnics, weddings and family portraits.

Location: 

A great Latin Quarter location: the historic Sorbonne university, Lycée Louis le Grand and Paris's oldest cinema are all on this street; the Jardins du Luxembourg and St-Germain are just nearby, and there are good bus and RER connections for the rest of town.

Bedrooms: 

Bedrooms are replete with acid greens and pinks, clashing turquoise and chocolate damasks, stripy cubic stools and an i-Mac in every room, and although everything is tightly packed in, it's been cleverly thought out. My favourite is the top-floor attic, which still has its original brass bed, a clawfoot bathtub in the centre of the room and ever-so-Parisian rooftop views to either side.
