The talk of the town in Paris these days? The City of Light may soon add a floating hotel to its roster of impressive accommodations. As reported by The Telegraph, a catamaran is being converted into a three-star hotel called OffParisSeine.

Anchored off the Pont Charles de Gaulle on the quai d’Austerlitz, the floating hotel will boast 54 rooms, 4 suites, a swimming pool and a sprawling terrace where guests can watch the boat traffic ply the waters of the Seine. There are already a number of house boats on the river, but this is the first floating hotel of its kind. The project is estimated to cost €11 million.

The Local reports that the boat-hotel is being built in Normandy, to be towed down the river next year in time to welcome guests in the spring. Rooms will cost between €160 and €450 per night.

Off-Paris Seine will be managed by Elegancia Hotels, which has a collection of design-driven boutique hotels across the capital. For more information, visit the hotel’s Twitter page:
