A sweet old-fashioned hotel just off historic Place du Châtelet.
Appealing red awnings greet guests who enter this hotel through a small reception area, where a whimsical oil painting of a woman in a dashing feathered red cap gazes down as you check in. With its duo of leather club chairs, fresh flowers and winding staircase (don't fear, there is also an elevator in this six-story building), the entry hall would feel right at home in a private manor. This is the overall effect the hotel strives to create, decked out as it is to resemble a classic but definitely lived-in home in the English countryside, complete with William Turner reproductions throughout. The manageable size of the Hôtel Britannique ensures that your stay is personalized. There is a lovely salon/reading room decorated with playful red paneling and a pleasant clutter of accessories. Another nice refuge is the bucolic breakfast room, whose buffet includes such treats as fresh squeezed orange juice. Equally character-filled are the bedrooms, each with its own unique charm. With two bathrooms and flower box-bedecked windows, the Junior Suite is particularly nice. And there's a little attic room with a slanted ceiling if you're seeking a quintessential Parisian garret experience. Six of the bedrooms come with balconies; high-tech extras in all include Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs.
