Address: 7 rue du Champ de Mars, Paris, 75007, France

Star rating:

4.2

Peaceful florals with the Eiffel Tower at the end of the street.

I first came across this pristine little hotel by accident and continue to be amazed by how it offers boutique style charm for such reasonable prices. Lovingly tended by Françoise and Stéphane Gourdal, the owners since 1995, it is just the place for couples on a budget, with a stylish boudoir-style lobby and an elderly dog who dozes behind the reception desk.

Location

Smart residential Paris on a side street between the Eiffel Tower and the very popular rue Cler food shopping street.                                                                                                                  

Bedrooms

Decorated by Françoise, the 25 decent-sized rooms, all named after flowers, look as they could have come out of an interiors magazine, with pretty toile de jouy walls and curtains, in either cornflower blue or yellow, painted wainscotting, creamy quilted bedspreads and throw cushions. Most rooms, except the singles, have baths. Two ground-floor rooms overlook small flowery courtyards, some street-side upper rooms offer glimpses of the [node:168774].

Public areas

A small boudoir-style lounge/reception, with golfing cartoons and illustrations from Fontaine's Fables, and a computer for guests' use. A stylish breakfast room with rattan chairs. The tiny lift is just big enough for two or one and a suitcase.

Eating and drinking

Continental breakfast served in the breakfast room or in your bedroom.

Service

Staff are polite though can take a while to defrost, but you can't expect too many services at this level of hotel.

Who stays there

A high proportion of Americans, who adore this district.

Price advice

Prices are low for this quality of accommodation in Paris so don't expect anything much below the rack rate. Breakfast costs eight euros.
