Room Report: Hotel de Suede Paris, France

Publié le dans Actualités

Arrival Experience: Tucked away on a quiet side street near Saint Germain, this charming small hotel has all the makings of the quintessential Parisian hotel found in the movies. Its exterior is elegant and traditional and once inside, guests are swiftly greeted by a friendly staffer who checks guests in with big gold room keys. An elevator supplements stairs to the accommodation floors above, but others choose to linger in the classical lounge area with a city map and their plans ready to unfurl.

Dining: There is no formal restaurant here although a quaint continental breakfast is included in many rates and served in the lobby. Especially notable are the small crepes ready to be slathered in creamy Nutella and fruity jams.

Accommodations: The rooms here remind guests of staying with old friends. They are almost residential in appearance sporting antique style beds with soft comforters, large closets, small sitting areas, and flat-screen cable TVs. Torchere lighting by the beds is classy as are the small nightstands. The tiled baths are large, but not over the top. Each hallway has only a few rooms giving an increased sense of privacy. All rooms feature windows that open, but rooms on higher floors in the back of the building give way to an immense garden and open green space. Rooms for families have extra bedding, and junior suites provide the maximum in luxury. Guests can stay connected with home thanks to phones and wireless Internet access.

Conclusion: There are few extra amenities here, but that’s not surprising considering the hotel’s small size. It is perfect for couples or families desiring the simple luxuries of the heart of Paris without breaking their budget. With a subway stop only a couple of blocks away, the entire city is at one's beck and call.
