3 star hotel

4.2

A hotel that is next to the Ritz but much less cher.

The Mansart is a great find if you're after traditional hotel style and courteous service but at a fraction of the price of its illustrious neighbour, the Ritz. Named after the architect who designed the adjacent place Vendôme and the Château de Versailles, geometrical murals in the lobby were inspired by 17th-century formal gardens.

Location

Next to the Ritz and the jewellery stores of place Vendôme but much less expensive. Palais Garnier opera house and the big department stores are a short walk in one direction, [node:168630] in another, with rue St-Honoré's fashion temptations on the way.

Bedrooms

The spacious bedrooms furnished with historic oil paintings, old prints and polished antique furniture really give you the impression of living in aristocratic, pre-Revolutionary Paris. Most are high-ceilinged, with tall windows and marble fireplaces and, although the entrance is on a side street, some even have views over place Vendôme itself.

Public areas

Geometrical murals in the lobby were inspired by 17th-century formal gardens; corridors are agreeably broad. Sadly there's no lounge but there's a breakfast room in Second Empire style on the first floor, with rosewood chairs and stained glass.

Eating and drinking

Continental breakfast served in the genteelly elegant first-floor breakfast room.

Service

Courteous, old-fashioned service.
