Our favourite rooms
The Deluxe Indulgence room lives up to its billing with a private hammam – the perfect excuse for a steamy night in. All suites are kitted out with hammams, too, but the top pick is on Le Roch’s penthouse level: the Saint Roch suite has a cavernous dressing area, free minibar, its own well-stocked wine bar (mais, oui…) and a room-service-ready terrace. It looks out over the illustrious rooftops of the 1st arrondissement, and on a clear day you can see the bronze Napoleon statue atop its column on Place Vendôme.
Lined with candles and sculpted from black-lava rock, this pool feels far removed from the heart of a bustling metropolis. It’s drenched in natural light, and the teal water is so serene it almost seems a shame to disturb it. The waterfall in the corner isn’t just decorative – it’s the secret entrance to the hammam.
Bespoke Codage products crafted in France are used in a full sweep of beauty and spa treatments, and there’s the option to customise your own. Combine with a steamy hammam session for maximum relaxation, or a work-out in the sophisticated gym.
You may be on a city break, but don’t forget some suitably Parisian swimwear for the pool and spa.
In-room spa treatments are available on request. Two of the Deluxe rooms are adapted for wheelchair-users. There are no stairs on the ground floor and there’s a lift down to the spa and pool.
Four-legged friends are welcome for free; baskets and biscuits are provided for doggies and moggies. Just let the hotel know when booking. See more pet-friendly hotels in Paris.
Babes-in-arms to children of 14 are welcome. Baby cots can be added to any room, but extra beds can only be added to Prestige rooms and suites (free for under-12s, €100 a night for Smiths 12 and older).
The bigger the better, so the Parisian Apartment is best. It fills out the whole sixth floor and is made up of a combination of the Saint Roch suite and the Deluxe Indulgence room, with a private terrace between them.
Just ask to borrow art materials, kids’ DVDs and games consoles.
There’s a roomy shallow end in the pool, with wide steps on the way in and out, just go easy on the splashing with all those candles around. Please note that, in accordance with French law, children in pools must be supervised at all times.
Kids have their own menu. Highchairs are available, too.
Babysitting is available for €30 an hour, a nanny can be booked on request, with at least one day’s notice.
No need to pack
