I have been to Paris several times and stayed in several hotels, but the hotel Da Vinci was by far the best experience I have had so far! First of all: location, location, location! It is perfectly positioned right in the most interesting part of Paris. When you leave the hotel, you will see the Louvre museum. It really is just a 7 minute walk. Also, musee d’Orsay is only an 8 minute walk. You don’t want to wait a few hours before you finally could enter the museums? No problem! They sell museum tickets at the reception so no queuing needed!
But it’s not only the location that makes this hotel so special, also the decoration and service are of a high level. The hotel Da Vinci is an upper class 4 four boutique hotel with only 24 rooms, named after the leading figures of the Quattrocento. The hotel recently opened (June, 2014) and is one of the best boutique hotels in the city, without doubt!
The staff is so friendly and welcoming- always hospitable and asking if we needed anything- always smiling and ready to help. The décor is beautiful- with decorations and references to the Da Vinci theme.
Our room was beautifully decorated with a gorgeous bathroom, nice wooden floors and a large bed. The room was impeccably clean. It felt like we were the first guests of the room. I also liked the wooden ceilings. They decoration team did a great job and although the room was not too large, it had enough space for the both of us.
Another highlight of the hotel Da Vinci is the little spa area. It is located in the basement of the hotel and has a small dip pool with jet streams. It felt so relaxing after a busy day in hectic Paris! The best thing about it, is that you could reserve the spa area just for you… They will bring you the key 5 minutes before and the place is all yours, without an extra charge! Bathrobes + slippers are provided in every room.
In the morning, a great breakfast buffet with many options began our day more than satisfied. It is reasonably priced. If you are into buffets, you could also choose for the continental breakfast or a Parisian breakfast with several options.
We hated to leave the hotel Da Vinci but look forward again to our special Paris getaway..
