If your idea of a Paris hotel is one filled with
French antiques and ever so charming bibelots, this is not the hotel
for you. However, if you’re looking for a Latin Quarter location, smart
and chic décor and four-star service, this could very well be your


Walk through its
Haussmann façade and you’ll be feel as if you’ve entered a London hotel
complete with leather Chesterfield sofas, an open courtyard and a piano
bar off to the side that is stocked with an extensive collection of
Scottish whiskeys in addition to all of the usual boissons.

doorman greets you and escorts you and your baggage to your room after
you check in. Take a minute to survey the Villa Panthéon. It doesn’t
qualify in any way as being boring.

interior designer, who oversaw the renovation two years ago, wasn’t
timid when it came to selecting colors and mixing dark lattice wood
accents with lacquered walls, and parquet floors. In the bedrooms,
you’ll be welcomed by vividly tasteful wallpapers and fabrics for
people who appreciate modern –opposed to trendy. Yes, there is every
type of amenity (with the exception of a gym) including modem connects.

Each room, no matter its size
is designed with an eye for detail. Reading lights are placed where
they should be, closets are outfitted with shelves and one could eat

“his” property. While conducting a tour, his eyes were darting with
watchful pride. However, you know that he runs a VERY tight ship.

Would I check into the Villa Panthéon?You bet.
