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.
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.
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.
