luxe - One by the Five, Paris
Written by Oryx
‘One’ You Must Visit Across from the famed Five Hotel in the intriguing Latin Quarter of Paris is a door – no sign attached or nearby – that leads to one of the most romantic establishments in the world.
Designed by Parisian architect Vincent Bastle, with enchanting interiors by Sandrine Alouf, this luxurious boutique single five-room suite is maintained by the Five Hotel but without the feel of a hotel. No lobby, no staff onsite – they are available from across the street at the touch of a button. At One, you are truly the only ones there.
The heart of Paris
Nestled between the transit hub of Paris Montparnasse and the banks of the Seine sits the historic Latin Quarter. Home to art galleries (such as Musée Rodin) and magnificent churches (Chapelle St-Louis-de-la-Salpêtrière), the Quarter also houses Paris University and an exquisite array of upscale boutiques and relaxed cafés that serve as the essence of what are termed locally as the Bohemian Bourgeois.
Commissioned in 1615 by Marie de Médicis, regent of France and the mother of King Louis XIII, Luxembourg Palace was constructed on the Left Bank site formerly home to the Hôtel du Luxembourg, from which the name was derived.
