Our favourite rooms
We’re still crushing on the warm-hued Parisian Superior rooms, and the Boulevard Club rooms have a soothing grey-green colour scheme – almost oceanic – and boast big windows overlooking a quiet private street. Both bedroom and bathroom are deliciously spacious; if you’re prone to bringing too many clothes and shoes, there’s certainly room for them.
Come armed with an empty case if you can – then fill it with Marais-and-Montmartre finds.
Communal areas are accessible for wheelchair-users, as are four of the Club Rooms.
Little Smiths aged 2–12 can come. Extra beds (for children or adults) can be added to the Boulevard Club and Capital Junior Suite for €40 a night. Babysitting can be arranged with three hours’ notice. The hotel has on-loan highchairs, DVDs and games.
