Like a lot of Paris, this hotel was built in 1869 and has lots of history although it was recently renovated the interior and room fixtures are thoroughly modern. Lovely understated browns and off whites are the predominant color schemes for the guest rooms and public areas as well. There is a little patio which provides a nice little oasis with fresh air and natural sunlight. The Notre Dame is very close as are a number of tourist attractions. Guest rooms have a modern flat screen TV, high speed Internet access, and they are very well designed despite the building's history.
