Split-level loft suites not to everyone's taste; narrow stairs
The historic Relais Christine is a beautiful boutique hotel with an enviable address in the Left Bank of Paris. While it only has 51 rooms and suites, it has the amenities of a larger luxury hotel, including an on-site spa, fitness center, 24-hour room service, and first-rate concierge service. One of the most charming features of this former mansion is its entrance through a leafy courtyard. Modern rooms reflect the character of the building with details such as exposed beams and wallpaper in antique Parisian prints. Bathrooms are particularly luxurious; some have soaking tubs and all have signature Relais Christine fluffy robes. The breakfast room is in the historic vaults of the building, parking and Wi-Fi are free, and the Left Bank location is within walking distance of Notre Dame Cathedral.
In the heart of the Left Bank, just steps from the Seine and the Latin Quarter
Relais Christine is located on the Left Bank, in an area removed from hordes of tourists. It's surrounded by quiet streets and restaurants, and is within easy walking distance of four metro stations, including direct lines to both airports. The metro can take visitors to all the major sights in Paris, including the Eiffel Tower. Notre Dame Cathedral is an easy stroll away.
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 Light" 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.
