Squatting a hotel with pool at La Lanterne

Lanterne Hotel

The spirit: Parisian glam’ at its best. Chic, warm and super intimate, this darling boutique hotel, nestled at the heart of the Latin Quarter, pays homage to the spirit of Paris: its lights. Lanterns, streetlights, all the lighting fixtures of the capital are omni-present: as decorating elements in the rooms, in photographs on the hall walls. Brilliant.

The room to book: Room 53 with its 50 shades of gray displayed from the carpet to the sheets on the king size bed, bathrobe, slippers, coffee machine, Italian shower. Last but not least, not one, but two terraces with views on the roofs of Paris. For the rest, use your imagination. Do not disturb.

Hello, room service ? When you wake up: viennoiseries, tartines, jams, cereals, tea, coffee (19 €). The rest of the day: burgers (16€), salads (16€), beef tartare, melt in your mouth chocolate (9€) and glass of  wine (9€).
