Grand Hotel Saint Michel****
Ideally located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, the distinctly refined Grand Hotel Saint Michel offers the perfect starting point to discover Paris. From here visitors can reach the city’s most emblematic streets, attractions and monuments on foot, including the Sorbonne and the prestigious Parisian universities, the famous Jardin du Luxembourg, the Panthéon, the Arènes de Lutèce, the National Museum of Natural History, the brasseries of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and the Île de la Cité in the midst of the Seine, where the majestic Notre-Dame Cathedral stands.
Perfect for a tourist getaway, the Grand Hotel Saint Michel is also suitable for business trips thanks to its central location, close proximity to public transport, its fully equipped conference room and its comfortable guestrooms, each of which is equipped with a desk.
Everything has been designed and arranged so that guests can relax after a busy day or an important meeting: the hotel offers many high-end services including a concierge service, room service and a wellness area with a fitness room and a hammam.
An address appreciated by the great names in literature
The atmosphere of this area has inspired many writers who contributed, throughout their stay and each in their own way, to building the reputation of the hotel and shaping its history.
This is notably the case with Nicolas Guillen, the great 20th century Cuban poet, writer and journalist; and Jorge Amado, the Brazilian writer of the modernist school, who resided here between 1947 and 1950.
Until 1995 the Chilean novelist Francisco Coloane was also a regular and loyal guest of the Grand Hotel Saint Michel. Similarly, the Portuguese journalist and feminist Maria Lamas made this establishment her pied-à-terre in the capital.
