Our favourite rooms
Housed in a corner building, the 40 rooms are all different, with hallway sofas, corner mirrors and triangular desks making the most of quirky layouts. Designer Dorothée Meilichzon’s striking use of pattern is the backdrop for a clean-lined but eye-catching retro-flavoured decor. Room 203 has floor-to-ceiling windows and a small balcony. With top-floor vistas and its own one-hole putting green, room 701 is hard to resist.
Leave bulky plug adaptors at home: the hotel has some to borrow and you’ll save space for a jar or two of something delicious from Lafayette Gourmet.
From the reception to the restaurant, Hotel Panache has taken great care to be welcoming to disabled guests. The second and third floors are accessible by lift; some rooms have bathrooms adapted to wheelchair users.
Welcome. Children can stay in Family or Triple rooms; under-12s can sleep on an extra bed in Superior Doubles (€30 a night). The restaurant has highchairs and staff will happily adapt menu items for picky eaters.
