This part of the Rive Gauche district has always attracted the most curious visitors and tourists, eager for culture, heritage and the characteristic atmosphere of Parisian intellectual chic. The proximity of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, just a few minutes from the hotel, allows you to discover its museums, art galleries, boutiques and Haussmann-style architecture on foot, immersing you in the Art Nouveau atmosphere of the 19th century.
The Maillol Museum was only created in 1995, but it has quickly become a must-see for Parisian cultural tourism. Dedicated to the works of the artist of the same name, it also features collections of 20th and 21st century art. The site itself is a work of art whose history began in 1739 with the construction of the Fontaine des Quatre-Saisons on land donated by the nuns of the Récollettes convent. A delight to discover.
Bordering the 7th arrondissement, the Quartier Latin is one of the eldest and most picturesque districts of Paris. It stretches from the Jardin des Plantes to Boulevard Saint-Germain, skirting the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Seine. You’ll love strolling along the cobbled streets of the Contrescarpe district and rue Mouffetard, all the way to the Lutetia Arena and the Great Mosque of Paris. The Pantheon and rue Saint Jacques take us all the way down to the Seine to Notre-Dame de Paris. The Latin Quarter has often been used as a backdrop for films such as La traversée de Paris, rue Poliveau, or Minuit à Paris on Mont Ste-Geneviève, chosen by Woody Allen.
The hotel is located in an area popular with shopping lovers. Just a few metres away, the prestigious Le Bon Marché shop and its building, built in 1869, are the symbol of Parisian chic and elegance. On the other side of the street, very close to the hotel, Rue de Rennes and Rue du Cherche-Midi stretch from Boulevard Saint-Germain to Gare Montparnasse, and have become the Mecca of Parisian shopping with their many fashion boutiques.
