On a busy St-Germain street, well-placed for both St-Germain's café and shopping attractions. At the end of the street, Pont Neuf bridge brings you to Ile de la Cité and the Right Bank.
The 49 bedrooms are high-ceilinged and romantic, but also practical with minibars and mahogany desks. Some of the good-sized deluxe rooms have four-poster beds, and most bathrooms have natural daylight. Attic duplexes have a more modern feel and can sleep a family.
On the ground floor, the beautiful salon is all about period splendour with a vast stone fireplace, ancient beams and Aubusson tapestries. There's a small paved courtyard.
Eating and drinking
Café Laurent (open to non-residents, too) has a good if pricey selection of wines, Champagnes and cocktails and programmes live jazz on Thursday to Saturday evenings. There's no restaurant but light meals can be provided by room service.
