"After 18 trips to Paris, I finally found this little gem," enthused a recent visitor to this charming Paris hotel.

This elegant place is just off Champs Elysées, and pretty much right behind the Louis Vuitton flagship store. But even if you're not into Louis' offerings, the neighborhood and location are excellent!

You're near the Arc de Triomphe; the Seine; Palais de Tokyo, home of the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris; and the Grand Palais.

Did we mention the shopping?

It's the little details that make this one of the best charming hotels in Paris — a glass of champagne, a bottle of water in the evening with chocolate, and the weather forecast on your pillow! By the way, "1er" means "1st" — first.
