We love our Paris hotel.
There are many bad Parisian hotels. Even the very best have their bad rooms that you don't see on their websites.
Will spent hours searching his favourite travel sites a few weeks back (Mr and Mrs Smith, Trip Advisor, Concierge.com, Tablet Hotels). Just when we thought we'd found a gem, you'd look at the guest photos on Trip Advisor, only to be depressed by images of the dowdiest, tiniest, out of date rooms.
Then he came upon Hotel Recamier. It was completely refurbished in 2009. All the rooms are very chic, in a classic contemporary style. It's perfectly located in one of my favourite parts of the 6th - Place St Sulpice, right next to the church. In fact, this is the view (of the church) from our room:
And it is quiet; so quiet. Thanks to double glazing, upholstered walls, and a quiet part of the square, it is a little cocoon - the perfect place to sleep off jetlag and unwind. If you don't believe me, read what other guests have said here.
