Saint James Albany Paris Hotel Spa

Just by the Louvre, this charming 4 star hotel has 200 rooms, most peacefully set around an inner cobbled courtyard. Unusually for the heart of Paris, it also has an indoor swimming pool. Beautifully decorated, with its own restaurant, it’s a drop of tranquillity in the centre of the city.
