These cozy lodgings defy their historic surroundings with a set of modern, chic rooms in soothing shades of beige and grey. A 21st-century take on Parisian elegance that includes unusual wood headboards and soft flannel upholstery, the decor is contemporary without being overbearing. If you need to work or write, desks are unusually functional here, especially in the superior doubles and suites. Post-sightseeing drinks can be sipped in the small bar, or if the weather is nice, in the pretty courtyard patio.
