Name: Hôtel La Lanterne
For a true touch of Parisian chic, the Hôtel La Lanterne is well worth a visit. With the high levels of style that you would expect from its location, this 4-star boutique hotel is situated in the very centre of Paris, nestled within the Latin Quarter. You will find Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Pantheon on your doorstep; all which perfectly illustrate the historic charm and beauty of Paris. To also experience the modern, crossing the river to the Right Bank brings you to the heart of shopping heaven where designer boutiques find home among the museums. With flights from London taking only an hour and a quarter, Paris really is the perfect destination for a long weekend.
The design is classic with a romantic edge. Antiques sit perfectly alongside modern, splashes of colour that ensure the look is not dated. The private garden offers a moment of peaceful sanctuary in the heart of a busy city. Attention to detail and service is second to none and the hotel exudes a friendly, hospitable charm.
The elegantly designed bedrooms feature rich furnishings, thick carpeting, beautifully chosen object d’art and striking photos of Paris taken by Nicolas Sénégas adorning the walls. A clever use of mirrors and colour ensures a contemporary air. A Superior Room will feature a king or queen-size bed with lanterns hanging on either side giving out a gentle glow, a private terrace, flat screen TV with international channels, air-conditioning, minibar, safe, robe and slippers. The beautiful en-suite bathrooms have Italian-style showers and offer complimentary Anne Semonin toiletries.
Restaurants & Bars
A generous continental breakfast is served every morning with hot options available too. For other meals you can venture out; the hotel staff can recommend suitable eateries in the Latin Quarter, including jazz cellars, bistros, restaurants and bars. An honesty wine bar offers the opportunity to unwind back at the hotel after a busy day exploring this eternally romantic city.
Pool & Activities
The indoor swimming pool is truly a sight to behold. You swim beneath beautifully arched brick walls, exquisitely lit, with huge black and white Paris scenes on the walls, it really is quite something. The spa area also includes a Turkish Bath and Sensorial Shower (with essential oils and fabulous lighting).
You can also opt to have your breakfast delivered to your room rather than in the Breakfast Room, a nice touch that adds to the feeling you are being rather spoilt in this luxurious haven.
