Located in the heart of Old Paris opposite Notre-Dame Cathedral, in a building dating from 1640, this small hotel with a unique atmosphere is in an exceptional location. Most rooms offer a view of the Seine and Notre-Dame. The Esmeralda Hotel owes its fame to the best seller “Monet’s Garden” and wanted to keep its old character. As soon as you open the hotel door, you take a trip back in time. Many prominent artists and personalities have appreciated its location and its simple, old-fashioned atmosphere. Each room has its own style and is equipped with a private bathroom. This 4-story property has a 24-hour front desk and free Wi-Fi. Several restaurants and the Shakespeare & Co bookstore are just a few steps away, and the Viviani Garden is in front of the property. The Saint-Michel fountain, with the RER station which directly serves the Palace of Versailles, is less than 5 minutes away on foot. You can also reach Gare du Nord by metro.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.7 for a two-person trip.
