Expert review of Relais du Louvre

A romantic Paris hideaway by the Louvre.

This romantic hideaway by Musée du Louvre was once a printworks where revolutionary tracts were printed in the 18th century, now it's a welcoming small hotel with a rather swish open-plan lobby and 15 pretty bedrooms laden with old beams and flowery fabrics. This is not the place to come for hip hotel buzz – it has more of the feel of an elegant B&B, but I loved the romantic views and feeling of tranquility, with added plusses like international newspapers and breakfast served all day.

Location: 

On a quiet street near Musée du Louvre and the Seine, it's in the very centre of Paris yet in a network of ancient streets that few visitors explore.

Bedrooms: 

If you're after utter calm then opt for a double or triple overlooking the courtyard. However I prefer the streetside rooms with their views of the Gothic pinnacles and gargoyles of St-Germain l'Auxerrois church and (if you lean out a little) glimpses of Musée du Louvre at the end of the street. Breakfast can be served in your room all day. A fifth-floor apartment under the eaves, with living room, well-equipped kitchen and bedroom with open-plan bath occupies the entire top floor and is perfect for families in Paris for several days.

There's a pleasant beamed lobby-reception area with internet computer for guests' use, though there is no separate sitting room or breakfast room.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast can be served all day, but only in your room - there's no breakfast room.

Service: 

The director has been here for years and really really looks after her clients.
