A 4 stars-hotel close to the Latin district
The Latin Quarter inspires a decor based on the “belles lettres”.
Once past the threshold, glass walls engraved with writing filter the interior space. A very Latin Quarter-type of literary inspiration breathes through the hotel, which enjoys playing with contrasts, given its location near the Jardin des Plantes and the Gare d’Austerlitz.
The historical facade, typical of the 40s, doesn’t hint at the contemporary architecture of the two buildings. Sober black and white colours confer sure elegance to the lines of the rooms and the poetry of the Fornasetti earthenware takes possession of the bathrooms. A classic room; a connecting room; a duplex, which is more spacious; or a superior room with a whirlpool bath: there’s a room for every type of stay.
The reception area, the lounge and the bar, with its remarkable counter made of pewter, opt for a colourful approach, highlighting the furniture and architectural features, such as the staircase created by a master glassblower.

The little intellectual universe of Paris was already bubbling in the 17th century, taking over Saint-Germain-des-Près and the Latin Quartier, so named because of the university courses given there in the language of the ancient Romans. Though the language may be dead, the student tradition still lives on! Around the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Près, everything is evocative of the intellectual existentialists who established the intellectual reputation of Paris in the 1960s.
