Pascal Allaman and Géraldine Prieur are the creative team behind the hotel's svelte style – their elegant design-solutions include splashes of gold and orange and TVs presented as works of art in gilded frames. Get cosy in the den between the patio and the restaurant, which is dressed in chartreuse and teal and has a toasty fireplace. If you arrive on your birthday (or any other celebratory occasion), the hotel will wrap your room door with an orange ribbon – a sweet touch that makes you feel even more like you're unwrapping a treat each time you return.

Our favourite rooms
We adore the eighth-floor suites not just for their photographer-friendly views of the Eiffel Tower, but for their wonderful, apartment-like atmosphere, that will have you feeling like a Parisian faster than you can say 'Mais oui'. The Superior rooms, though of bijou Parisian proportions, are beautifully decorated. All come with huge windows for surreptitious people-gazing.
There's no spa on site, but treatments, and access to a well-kitted-out gym, are available at Bel Ami, Montalembert's sister hotel. To book, have a word with the concierge.
Bring your loosest skirts or trousers – with L'Atelier du Joël Rubuchon and Pierre Gagnaire's Gaya right next door, you’re going to want to seriously indulge.
In-room massages are available with a day's notice in Superior rooms and above.
The hotel has a VID service, where small, well-behaved dogs are welcome for free in some rooms. The service includes water, a cosy basket, dog plate and special shampoo. Dog-sitting and walking is offered too, and the chef can whip up food if needed. See more pet-friendly hotels in Paris.
Children are very welcome at the hotel; free cots, extra beds (€100 for over-12s, free for younger enfants) and babysitting services (€30 an hour, plus €25 taxi fee) are all available. Le Restaurant has a dedicated children’s menu.
