Why would you stay anywhere else? You could pay more, I guess, but nothing could top La Fantaisie? First, the people are absolutely amazing. I actually became friends with Ana, Ben, Marie Pauline, and Astree. I miss them. The hotel is beautiful and such bright colors. Just walking in the door brings a smile to your face. Our room was big and beautiful, and I actually liked the shower more than mine at home. The street in front of the hotel offers shops, little bistros and patisseries abound. We walked to most of the restaurants. The setting is beautiful as well, the garden restaurant and the rooftop bar. Hopefully we'll come back to Paris, and if we do, we will definitely stay at La Fantaisie?

We came here for dinner and drinks, so I can’t comment on the rooms or the place as a hotel, I’m afraid. Although our friends who were staying there said it was very comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant, and it was excellent food. I had corn waffles as a starter, with roe and the skate wings as a main course. Both were excellent, as was my partner’s pollock. The waitress was very helpful and the somnellier spoke excellent English and gave a great recommendation of a wine to suit all our chosen dishes - which she had looked up before coming to the table. I was very impressed. After the meal we went up to the rooftop bar for cocktails. You can choose to sit either insider or outside, and part of the outside has views of the Eiffel Tower.
