8. Millésime Hotel

Millesime Hotel

One of our newest fave hotels on the Left Bank, and in the heart of Saint-Germain, Millésime Hotel is not just about comfort, design, and service, it's also about the perfect location. On a quiet street in Saint-Germain you'll find the famous church and the Boulevard Saint-Germain in one direction (3 minutes), and the Louvre in the other direction (11 minutes), just across the river.

7. Hotel Da Vinci & Spa

Hotel Da Vinci

Equally charming and well-appointed, Hotel Da Vinci is found on Rue des Saints-Pères, just across the river from the Louvre and in the very heart of Left Bank life. It's a great place for walking access to everything you want to see, including Musée d'Orsay, only 10 minutes away.

Unusually for a boutique hotel in central Paris, the hotel has an indoor pool. There's also a stunning courtyard patio, but we really like the comfortable rooms and the great service.

3. Hotel d'Aubusson

Hotel Aubusson

Set on Rue Dauphine, which leads directly to the Seine, where you can cross Pont Neuf to île de la Cité (it's a 3-minute walk), Hotel d'Aubusson is the highest-rated boutique hotel in the 6th Arrondissement and our readers' top choice.

Built in the 17th century as a private mansion, Aubusson retains the period charm, with oak beams, giant fireplaces, and antique furniture. The rooms are charming, well-maintained, and equipped to modern comfort standards. We also love the public areas like the lobby and the bar with its curved zinc counter, not to mention the swimming pool, a rarity on the Left Bank.

2. Hotel Baume

Hotel Baume

If you're interested in a modern hotel with a historic design sensibility, we can recommend Le Baume. The hotel has been completely re-done with an interior design inspired by the 1930s and the fashion, films, and Art Deco of the period. Harking back to that era, the rooms are filled with textured silk, satins, and exotic woods.

In addition to the stunning design, the hotel has all the modern conveniences, and guests rave about the staff, saying, "A gem in Paris!!!" — "Missed it the moment we left!" — "Perfect boutique hotel and location."

1. Hotel Monge

Hotel Monge

Our top-rated Paris hotel is also on the Left Bank, in the Latin Quarter. As soon as it opened Hotel Monge went to the top of our lists. Perfectly located in a vibrant neighborhood it is also convenient to the things you want to see in Paris, like the Pantheon and Notre Dame.

Everything about the Hotel Monge is excellent — the best hotel beds and pillows ever, fantastic lighting design, great staff and service. Since we started singing its charms, Hotel Monge has become incredibly busy, so be sure to book early.

Our Rating — Superb-Plus!
• 55 Rue Monge



This is an amazing, near-perfect place to stay in the quartier. Hotel Monge sits majestically on the street that bears its name. We love the cosy lounge where guests can relax with un journal (newspaper), un cafe, ou une coupe de champagne. There are only 30 rooms, each is beautifully decorated, well designed, and very well equipped. The room lighting design is superb. All rooms are soundproofed and feature what we think are the most comfortable beds in all of Paris."
