Housed in a renovated townhouse dating back to the 1800's, Hotel Legend Paris has 38 rooms and is the perfect base from which to explore the city of love.

The designer hotel is located on the busy Rue du Rennes in Paris' 6th arrondissement, making everything you could want to visit during your stay in the French capital very close by indeed.


Although the bustling street below might not quite inspire the romance of Paris you imagined, the welcoming reception will soon let you forget your woes.

Neon green furniture, grey walls and black highlights beckon you in, while pretty, modern leaf-like lights create a magical atmosphere.

The same mystical lights feature in the rooms, where they float delicately above the crips beds. The bright colours of the reception are not continued here though, they are replaced with a warm and calming pallet of brown, white and dusky gold instead.


The rooms themselves, although small, are very practical and well-designed. Elegant draping on either side of the bed adds to that 'special' feel of the rooms; a velvet 'statement' wall, leather headboard and flat-screen TV finishing off the designer feel.

But best of all are the beds themselves: all 38 rooms have Tempur mattresses, complemented with Tempur pillows - promising the best night sleep you've ever had.

If you can pry yourself away from bed in the morning, the well-stocked petit dejeuner (breakfast buffet) served in the reception is truly delightful.
