Located in the heart of Saint-Germain des Près, the 5 * hotel with spaces recently renovated by "Rouge Absolu" imposes elegance with a playful and warm design.
The sofa and armchair fabrics were signed by local publishers, such as Osborn and Little. Two Silvera bubble chairs set the tone with a decor featuring Macassar Eboni wood alcoves.
