Located on the chic rue Cler market street, the hotel is within walking distance of such major monuments as the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, and the Rodin Museum. The hotel has a classic-contemporary decor with tiled reception hall, glass elevator, trompe l’oeil marbled walls and a cosy salon with newspapers, ice machine, and hot and cold drinks dispensers. The 50 rooms are small but bright, with modem connection, ceiling fans, direct-dial phone, satellite TV, safe and en suite bathroom with a shower and hairdryer. Doubles from €90.
