From the moment you enter, you feel like you are in a private home. In fact, you may very well be welcomed by Samba, the lovely golden retriever, before you meet the Prigents, the hospitable owners. Polished wood banisters lead up spiral staircases to narrow hallways and cozy rooms decorated with a personal touch. Walls are covered with fabrics printed with tasteful 19th-century kitsch motifs, furniture is 1940s style, and the comfort level is terrific. A few rooms have views of the Eiffel Tower. It books up early. Connecting rooms are available for families.
