Hotel Louison (previously known as Hotel Aviatic) is a family-run boutique hotel with 42 rooms in Saint-Germain, Paris. Previously the royal residence of King Louis XIV's illegitimate children, the hotel is steeped in history. In 1912, the pioneering aviators from the Issy-les-Moulineaux airfield stayed at the hotel, which gave this Chic Retreat its name today.
The intimacy and elegance of this townhouse hotel are characterised by a treasure trove of antique furniture and parquet floors. The recent renovations by architect F. Foucaut add to its stylishness without disrupting its authentic aura. Sculpted busts and period mouldings mix with modern features to give guests a comfortable and atmospheric experience.
Hotel Louison is perfectly located in the heart of the Left Bank, within walking distance of the Seine and some of the best shops, cafés and restaurants in Paris. The staff speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, and extra care is taken to ensure that guests feel at home.
The cosy breakfast room at Hotel Louison is decorated with a large map of 18th-century Paris, creating a truly Parisian atmosphere. The French-style buffet offers delicious bread and pastries, all sourced from a traditional Parisian boulangerie, as well as a selection of fruit, cereals, cheeses and cold meats.
Outside of the hotel, there are plenty of places to sink your teeth into. The Left Bank is a haven for trendy cafés and restaurants where you can sample traditional French cuisine. Before you head out why not enjoy a complimentary cocktail in the hotel lobby.
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.
With a robust mix of reds, greys and browns, in addition to a marble fireplace, read or enjoy a drink in the 19th-century style sitting room. You can also sink into armchairs near the computer room, or explore the hidden winter garden.
Beyond the hotel, there is plenty to explore around Paris. The Left Bank is famous for its trendy art galleries and boutique shops.
