Known for its impeccable service and comfort level, the lovely rooms at this personable hotel are fitted with faux-antique furniture, big wood headboards hand-painted with a lily-of-the-valley (muguet) motif, and pretty bathrooms with old-fashioned wood washstands and mirror frames. Rooms are relatively large for Paris, and the triples are downright spacious. Five doubles have a great view of the Eiffel Tower, three others of Les Invalides; needless to say they book up months in advance. The others, which are equally comfy and less expensive, look out on either the quiet street or the airy courtyard. Three rooms on the ground floor look directly into a small but lush garden.
