Run by the friendly Prigent family (who are also at the helm of the Hôtel Londres Eiffel; see below), this new boutique hotel has both stylish interiors and a homey charm. Bright colors on the walls blend harmoniously with subdued bedsteads and linens; vintage mid-century reproduction furniture and faux antique phones take the edge off sleek modern lines. The “Prestige” rooms cost more but are especially roomy (30 sq. m/323 sq. ft.), a rarity even in upscale Parisian hotels. In addition to particularly attentive service, this hotel is blessed with an excellent location for shopping addicts: It’s just down the street from Bon Marché.
