Close to airports and a nine-minute drive to the Eiffel Tower
Hotel Dauphine Saint Germain resides in historic Paris, just half an hour from two nearby airports. Guests might enjoy the proximity to major metro lines for getting around the bustling city, and there are plenty of shops and local cuisine within walking distance. The hotel is on a busy street that experiences traffic well into the night, so some rooms are subject to outside noise.
Paris is one of Europe's most densely populated cities, and is currently one of the world's most important business and cultural metropolises. Known as "The City of Lights" for its growth during the Age of Enlightenment, Paris is home to some of the world's most luxurious fashion (Hermes, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent), iconic museums and structures, as well as major media and business outlets.
Situated in a 17th-century building centrally located in Paris' historic district, the 30-room Hotel Dauphine Saint Germain offers a little dose of classic Parisian charm. Ivy trickles down from wrought-iron ledges on the windows, and rooms are individually decorated in homey, classic French decor -- expect antique sconces and matching toile or floral wallpaper and drapery. Floor space is limited (as is standard for Parisian hotels), but bathrooms are spacious, and affordable rates and freebies such as Wi-Fi and shoe shines help make this quintessential Parisian hotel a great deal.
