THE STORY: Located between the Odéon crossroads and the Saint-Michel fountain, the Hôtel Dame des Arts is bursting with Left Bank spirit. And for good reason: nothing has been left to chance, from the elegant facade with its cascade of terraces to the decor by interior designer Raphaël Navot, which feels straight out of a New Wave film (burnt wooden floors, cinnamon-toned solid oak walls, padded velvet sofas), not to mention the hotel’s distinct olfactory identity. Upstairs, the one hundred-odd rooms show off talented artists from Saint-Germain-des-Prés, each of which houses an original work of art, and most of which boast unbeatable views of the city. For all the rest, know that the shared plates restaurant, fitness center and verdant garden are worth checking out…. Not to mention the Bar du Toit, the rooftop bar where you can sip a cocktail at night when the weather’s nice, taking in Paris’s sparkling lights. It’s nothing short of magical! Double rooms starting at €300 a night.
BREAKFAST: Order it à la carte or opt for the buffet (€25), with coffee or tea, freshly squeezed fruit juices, breads and viennoiseries, muesli, granola, homemade cake, fresh fruit, yogurts, cheeses, charcuterie and eggs any way you like. Eat it all in the dining room, in the garden or in bed!
TOILETRIES: Diptyque soap, body wash and shampoo.
LITTLE LUXURY: Enjoy the Penthouse Suite, with views of Sacré-Coeur from the bathtub, and of the Eiffel Tower from the double terrace!
