Residence des Arts Hotel Review: Résidence des Arts transports guests back in time, although it does not shy away from anachronistic modern touches, such as air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs with international channels and free Internet. Patterned wallpaper and bold stripes splashed across the walls, ceilings and furniture give rooms a definite sense of character. Located between the Latin Quarter and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Résidence des Arts is a peaceful respite from a very lively area. The neighborhood's twisty little side streets are home to many charming cafés, not to mention the potential for adventure and discovery. Also nearby are the Jardin du Luxembourg, the second largest public park in Paris, the Medici Fountain and a vintage carousel. Major monuments --- including Notre Dame, Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre and the Seine River --- are within walking distance. Booking in advance or staying for at least three days will earn guests a discount.
