  • Overview

    Hotel Louison (previously known as Hotel Aviatic) is a family-run boutique hotel with 42 rooms in Saint-Germain, Paris. Previously the royal residence King Louis XIV's illigitimate 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 is characterised by a treasure trove of antique furniture and parquet floors. The recent renovations by architect F. Foucaut add to its stylishness without disrupting it's 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, cafes 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 breads 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 cafes and restaurants where you can sample traditional French cuisine.
