The Saint-Germain Spirit
The Hôtel le Placide is the ideal starting point to discover the blissful district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a legendary place that embodies the cultural, artistic and literary effervescence of Paris.
While staying at the hotel, you are in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, one of the main intellectual centres of Paris which was once home to many artists, writers, poets and intellectuals: Jean-Paul Sartre, Boris Vian, Albert Camus, Oscar Wilde, Hemingway and Picasso just to name a few...
The birthplace of jazz in Paris in the 1950s, the neighbourhood remains an extremely busy place both day and night. Café de Flore, les Deux Magots and Brasserie Lipp cannot be overlooked amongst the “oh so” legendary places in Paris.
An area full of publishing houses, art galleries, antique shops as well as home design and fashion boutiques, Saint-Germain-des-Prés is also a popular place for a day of shopping in Paris.
During your stay at the hotel, soak up the atmosphere that makes Saint-Germain-des-Prés so unique and one of the most magical areas in Paris!
