A 5-star, 28-room boutique hotel designed along the lines of a private residence in a refurbished 18th century building in the heart of Paris’ Left Bank, is proving such a hit with Australian travellers that we are now its second-biggest market world-wide.
The award-winning Hotel Esprit Saint Germain is Virtuoso’s only hotel on the Left Bank, and owner Laurence Tafanel who was part of the group’s recent Australian Roadshow says Australians love the Left Bank’s ambience of restaurants, antique stores, galleries and museums.
The hotel is represented in Australia by Julie Denovan Marketing; a current promotion for select dates in 2015 is stay-four-pay-3 nights including American breakfast daily and priced from Euro 1,350 for two people.
While petite and intimate the Hotel Esprit Saint Germain is big on services and with well-appointed rooms and suites offering tea and coffee making facilities, windows that open, high-speed internet, daily fresh fruit, flowers and restocking of the complimentary mini-bar, and newspaper of choice.
And a Library Lounge and Fireplace Lounge feature a complimentary bar where guests can help themselves to Champagne, wines and spirits, while there’s a Fitness Centre overlooking the rooftops of Paris.
