Historic hotels in Paris
Hotel de Varenne
Close to the Invalides and the Rodin museum with its fascinating garden, this former hôtel particulier changed hands in 2002.
Philippe Bidal’s modest hotel (a listed historic monument) stands at the end of a glass-roofed 19th-century arcade with shops, near the junction of boulevards Haussmann, Montmartre and des Italiens.
Hotel Duc de Saint-Simon
‘Full of character, delightfully decorated and a haven of peace’: this 18th-century mansion is in a side street off Boulevard St-Germain.
Hotel des Grands Hommes
Liked immensely by many readers (‘good, quiet, exceptional value’; ‘an excellent hotel in a very good location’), this converted town house is named after the ‘great men’ entombed in the Panthéon opposite.
Le Pavillon de la Reine
‘Romantically set’ in the Marais, on one of Paris’s loveliest squares, this handsome 17th-century building, with creeper-draped facade and pretty front courtyard, is an elegant hotel.
‘Not cheap, but the style, decor, service and fabulous location make it a winner’: this 17th-century mansion is within easy walking distance (via Pont Neuf) of the Louvre and Notre Dame.
Hotel Le Clement
M. and Mme Charrade’s ‘typical Parisian small hotel, narrow, on 6 floors’, is located just off Boulevard St-Germain and a stroll away from Luxembourg Gardens and the Notre-Dame.
