You stay in five star luxury, amidst an area famed for its artistic and literary history. But you discover the beneath-the-surface gems only the locals know about.
The Hotel Pont Royal is in the heart of the St Germain des Prés – the district all of Paris celebrates as being the hub of the artistic world and the centre of the city’s literary scene. Hemingway, Miller and Fitzgerald all held court in the Pont Royal’s bar. Artists like Miró, Chagall and Buffet added their own touch of colour.
So the hotel is stylish and luxurious and bohemian in outlook – expect ‘Left bank’ décor and fantastic views over the sixth arrondissement.
But ask yourself a question. How can you immerse yourself in the real culture of the area, if you follow the well-trodden tourist route? The answer is don’t – the Pont Royal’s ‘Gold Key’ concierge service will help you discover Paris’s real artistic and cultural scene.
