From the moment you enter, you feel like you are in a private home, and you’ll probably be greeted by the friendly owners, the Prigents, as well as their dog, a polite golden retriever named Samba. Knickknacks line the wood bookshelves in the neo-retro lobby, an old-fashioned, yet cheerfully modern look that extends to the guest rooms. Walls are covered with tasteful printed fabrics featuring slightly kitsch 19th-century motifs, while the furniture harkens back to the 1940s, with lots of wood in soft shades of beige and brown. Two of the rooms have views of the Eiffel Tower (which is just steps away), but these book up early. For even more quiet and intimacy, request a spot in the Pavillion, a small elevator-less building in the back with just six rooms. Adjoining rooms are available for families.
