Auberge Bonaparte is one of the best deals in the city. The accommodations, quality of service, and amenities are comparable to its higher-priced competitors, yet you’ll pay significantly less. Rooms at the lowest price point are on the small side but comfortable and perfectly adequate. Square footage increases as you move up in price. Some rooms feature gorgeous exposed brick walls, and all have custom-built chairs and benches. Rooms on the courtyard side have an appealing view of the Basilique Notre-Dame, which can also be seen from a rooftop terrace accessible to all guests. In 2013, the Bonaparte restaurant got a new bar and more dining space; this graceful restaurant is where complimentary breakfast is served. At night, the restaurant is usually packed, dishing out excellent renditions of French cuisine (we highly recommend the Dover sole meunière).
