Family-run and small boutique in great area of St Germain. Wonderfully quiet and comfortable hideaway, run by the same family for 40 years. Fine fabrics, wooden beams, a personal collection of paintings and Lilly the dog make for a memorable stay.

Hotel de Buci

After 40 years in the same family you would expect this <b>boutique hotel</b> - formerly an artist's studio, and 400 years old - to have plenty of 'patina', and so it does. Despite recent and fairly extensive renovation - a/c, electric blinds, quality fabrics and decent tvs - the <b>Hotel de Buci</b> has managed to retain its character, so that guests return year after year, many bringing presents for Lili the dog who belongs to Leonie, the owner.

As with many family-run hotels, it is the personal service as well as the character that draws them. While downstairs is full of a rich collection of paintings, antique and contemporary furniture and objets, the rooms upstairs are fairly uniform in décor, if not size, though the dominant colour changes on each floor.

<b>The rooms</b>

The 24 rooms are generally small, but warm and cocoon-like, with rich fabrics and colours. For size, the superiors are possibly better than the more expensive deluxes, unless you like the two room set-up, like mini-suites. The a/c units are all individual to each room, so 'preventing the spread of microbes', and the blinds ensure total black-out and total quiet, important for this busy night-time spot close to <b>St Germain church</b>. Firm mattresses and expensive pillows complete the comfort factor. Three suites provide family accommodation.
