Hotel Louison (previously known as Hotel Aviatic Saint Germain) is a family run boutique hotel with 42 rooms in Saint-Germain, Paris. Were it not for the reception desk you would be forgiven for thinking you had walked into someone's private hallway such is the intimacy and elegance of this charming townhouse hotel. This treasure trove of antique furniture, parquet floors, wood panelling and marble is steeped in history and was one home to the Marquise de Maintenon who raised the children of Madame de Montespan and Louis XIV. In 1912, the pioneering aviators from the Issy-les-Moulineaux airfield stayed at the hotel, which gave this Chic Retreat its name today. The recent renovations by architect F. Foucaut will make guests feel very much at home during their stay at Hotel Louison which is perfectly located in the heart of the Left Bank within walking distance of the Seine and some of the best shops, cafes and restaurants in Paris. The staff speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese and being a family-run hotel, extra care is taken to ensure that guests feel very much at home.
Read or enjoy a drink in the 19th-century style sitting room a robust mix of reds, greys and browns, with a marble fireplace or sink into armchairs near the computer room and hidden winter garden.
The cosy breakfast room at Hotel Louison is decorated with a large detailed map of 18th-century Paris against the backdrop of contemporary furniture bringing together Parisian tradition and the 21st century. The French-style buffet offers delicious breads and pastries from a traditional Parisian boulangerie as well as a selection of fruit, cereals, cheeses and cold meats.
Hotel Louison is a small hotel on a grand scale with a clever mix of styles, colours and materials. Built in 1856, many of the original features and character of the hotel remain in place today. There are 3 room types to choose from: The Executive Room can sleep up to 3 people in a double and a single bed or three single beds and for couples looking for a little more space this is the perfect choice. The Prestige Rooms are decorated in fabrics by Manuel Canovas, Kenzo and Designers Guild and are our favourite rooms. The Traditional Rooms are the smallest and do not have a bath like the others, but the bathroom is fitted with an Italian shower, featuring slate tiles and chrome taps and are of these are full of Left Bank charm. All rooms have complimentary WiFi. Baby beds are free (under 2 years old), on request and only available in Prestige or Executive rooms.
