The luxury of a hotel that puts the Marais at your feet...
You are here in a hotel in the Marais, in the heart of Paris, between the rue Saint Antoine and the quays of the Seine. The Hôtel de Ville, the Bastille and next to the extraordinary remains of Philippe Auguste's enclosure (fortified wall to protect the capital in the 12th century) are nearby.
The most prestigious districts are yours to explore. Once you cross the threshold of the Charles V, the Marais, a witness to the past and the history of France, unfolds its architectural treasures. Just a 3-minute walk away, the Place des Vosges, the oldest square in Paris and without doubt the most beautiful, is a superb jewel in the Marais setting. Measuring 140 m x 140 m, it is lined with 36 red brick pavilions built in a symmetrical fashion. In the centre is a pleasant garden with many lime trees, decorated with several fountains and an equestrian statue of Louis XIII. On the ground floor of the pavilions, cafés, shops and art galleries invite you to relax.
From our hotel in the heart of the Marais, one of the most fascinating districts of Paris, you can reach the Ile Saint Louis, the figurehead of the Seine with its private mansions and its typically Parisian cobbled courtyards, the Ile de la Cité with Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle, the Conciergerie and the Place Dauphine, a residential and confidential golden triangle that welcomes bowlers in the evening during the summer; the Place de la Bastille and its prestigious Opera with its rich and eclectic programme, the Boulevard Saint-Germain and the Latin Quarter...
3 minutes walk from our hotel in the Marais, the Saint Paul metro (line 1) which serves the Gare de Lyon, the Châtelet, the Louvre, the Place de la Concorde, the Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe... and 10 minutes away the RER C St-Michel/Notre-Dame which serves the Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower, the Invalides, the Musée d'Orsay, the Gare d'Austerlitz, the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand..., not to mention the numerous buses which will take you to the four corners of Paris.
