Why we love it...

Solid comfort. Things to do?

The Place

You may have seen the Hollywood remake of Charade – it stars this hotel. Previously named Hôtel des Croisés, in the film it was called the Langlois and, in honour of the movie, the owner kept the name. Though the clientele have become a bit more hip of late, the Langlois itself remains matronly, quiet and solid, with the air of a provincial town hotel.

You enter the stone-fronted mansion through double doors to a baronial hall with carved stone walls and an ornate wooden archway. Notice the hotel’s original, wire-fronted lift by the reception desk. The breakfast room, with its large mirror and antique birdcage, is on your right – there are plans to expand this in the next two years.

The bedrooms have been much improved over the last 15 years by owner, Ahmet Abut. When not at the Langlois, he procures fine art for the Pera museum in Istanbul, and if something at the auction house tickles his fancy, he will purchase it for the hotel. So, throughout the hotel there are antique desks, bedside tables, ceramic-tiled fireplaces, plaster busts. Room 44 has an incredible, carved wooden bedside wall, through which you reach the bathroom; our favourite was room 64 for its matching bed and bedside table set and wonderful views both of Sacré Coeur and Paroisse de la Trinité. Some of the bathrooms are extraordinarily large.

This hotel is handy for Gare Saint-Lazare, but is otherwise in a fairly nondescript part of town.
