This mid-range boutique hotel in the suburb of Puteaux is a good value thanks to its location on the outskirts of Paris. In-the-know repeat guests keep coming back to the calm neighborhood that sits close to the metro for a quick ride into the City of Lights. The hotel's exterior and signage is distinctly purple, but the lobby contains wood furnishings and classic touches that lend a cozy feel. This is where guests can sip free coffee and tea and enjoy a range of international newspapers. During warmer months, the pretty outdoor patio is a great spot for breakfast (served for a fee) or evening aperitifs. The 37 rooms come with either twin or double beds (no suites here), decorated in warm tones and adorned with wall hangings depicting Parisian scenes. Each room has a minibar, flat-screen TV and a special fragrance lamp that can diffuse one of five scents: natural touch, tonic, relaxing, gourmet and sensual. The bathrooms are a fun surprise, as they have contemporary style and special lighting effects in the walk-in showers. Wi-Fi is free.
