This sanctuary of tranquility and luxury can be found in the heart of the Left Bank .
This renovated hotel retains its period charm in guest chambers that exude individual character, thanks to designer Jacques Garcia. In number 16, for example, which has been redone in Victorian style, Oscar Wilde spent his last days. Room 36 turns back the hands of time to the Art Deco era, and number 12, the leopard room, has been reinterpreted with a “back to Africa” ambience. On the ground floor, the hotel features a bar, a gastronomic restaurant serving a modern take on classic French cuisine, and a beautiful patio graced with a fountain. A stone staircase leads to a nice swimming pool. It's possible that the prospect of a stay here will elicit the same response as that attributed to dear old Oscar: "One can resist anything but temptation."
