The Victoria Palace, Left Bank, Paris

Stay at the charming privately owned 5 star Victoria Palace Hotel nestled in the heart of the Left Bank, in the 6th arrondissement. Take a stroll through nearby Luxembourg Gardens, visit Saint-Sulpice or spend your days shopping at the exclusive Bon Marche department store.

Tucked away off the bustling Rue de Rennes, in between Montparnasse and Saint Germaine des Pres, sits the privately owned Victoria Palace Hotel. A classically French hotel generous with space, rooms start at 25sqm, many of which interconnect. Ask about their “Foodies Discovery Trail” and lose yourself in local streets sampling the culinary delights of the neighbourhood.
