Our favourite rooms
There’s something of the jewel box in Hotel Bowmann’s pale and interesting rooms: expect padded headboards, reflective gold surfaces and bathrooms encased in white diamond-cut boxes. If you’re staying a while, plump for the more spacious Deluxe Haussmann Room, with its waterfall shower and petite sitting area. For a wow-worthy getaway, the Eiffel Prestige Suite has a balcony with unbeatable views of Gustave’s most iconic creation.
Open from 7am for pre-breakfast dips to 10pm for post-stroll soaks, the spa’s marble-walled pool is a sleek indoor number.
The hotel’s bijou spa packs in a hammam, balneotherapy shower and two treatment rooms. Holistic and organic, Lacure Officine treatments focus on inside-out wellbeing. Plump for an uplifting Japanese facial, slimming massages or a tension-busting horizontal shower.
Bring a foldable shopper: an understated Longchamp number will strike the right style note for those spur-of-the-moment buys in the neighbourhood.
Three Bowmann Rooms have been adapted for wheelchair users, who also have access to the restaurant, bar and spa.
Hotel Bowmann is more of a grown-up stay, but cots for under-3s are available in Deluxe Rooms and above for €45 a night.
