Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
Eat, see, and stay in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
"Beautiful chapel with the most amazing stained glass in the world"
reviewed 2 days ago by MerylColaco
Do reach early to avoid the lines . THe Sainte Chapelle has the most intricate stained glass in the world. tHe light shining on it has such a beautiful sight to behold. It truly is out of the world. Easily accessible by the metro. Just walking around the neighbourhood is worth it.
"Sadly closed but still beautiful from the outside"
reviewed 2 days ago by MerylColaco
It was closed when we vsiited in february due to the fire that took place. however it still looks beautiful from the outside and really look forward to it being restored to its fomer glory. very easy to get there by the paris metro.
This monument is a must to visit. The monument is was erected as a memory to all nazi's victims 200,000 peoples.
The architecture and the design resemble a jail in contrast to the Seine river which resembles the freedom, which flows around.
Do not miss the place.
I dined at Les Fous de I'lle on Christmas Eve 2019 as a solo diner. The menu was a fixed at 65E with matched wines for 35E. It was very busy and the staff did well to cope with all the diners. The food was good but I didn't think it was value for money, compared to some of the...
We were staying on the island and we wanted to dine in a place that matched the Ile St-Louis vibe and we made a perfect match. The dining room is well decorated, well proportioned and very comfortable. The atmosphere is kind of on the formal side, but not stuffy or pretentious and the dress for most was "smart casual". Everything...
This is a super cute hotel in an excellent location. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Plenty of restaurants and shops around. I can’t wait to return here on my next visit to Paris! We had rooms facing the street, so charming!!
Fantastic find! Interesting hotel on Ile Saint Louis. Very private. The conversion from apparently a former indoor tennis court to a hotel was amazing. Room was very well designed. Toilet is separate from the rest of the bathroom. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good and not included in room price.
My wife and I stayed here for a recent four night stay in Paris. Quiet, well situated, beautiful shops in proximity and a short walk to metro stops; St Michel and Hotel de Ville. The staff were polite ,informative and very friendly. There is an excellent restaurant located right next door with creperies and cafes within a short distance. The...
We stayed here last week from Monday to Friday! This location was perfect as it is centrally located to all things you’d like to visit. One day we walked about 10 miles around the area. Hotel staff were all great and helpful. The room is small like most Paris hotels (I had been to Paris in the past) but super...
Last time I stayed there was fall 2012. This hotel closed in 2015. It is now private residences. Last time I stayed there it was terrible. Filthy, lumpy dirty bed. It was cheap but for a few francs more a better hotel could have been had on the left bank..
