A newly opened, small but fairly luxurious and expensive Left Bank hotel, already popular with American, English and Australian visitors. The decor is modern, with spot lighting and trendy 1960s furniture in the lobby, including a swinging transparent plastic chair suspended from the ceiling, and an open honor bar in the evening. Surrounding a small patio, each floor is a different color, each room is unique, and each has flat screen TV strategically placed above the bath.
