Ha! What a pleasure to chill in a good bath after an all-day visit in the French capital or an ad nauseam work seminar! And why not relax totally in a bubble bath?

Very near to the Luxembourg Gardens and only 5 minutes away from the Montparnasse tower, you will find a lovely “poem hotel”, easily identifiable by the tree shadows painted by hand on its facade; that is the Apostrophe hotel. This hotel has been created as a story to tell to customers, hence the qualifier “poem”. On its website, the hotel explains that there is a meaning, an intention, behind each unique bedroom decor.
This hotel calls out to its customers through its uniqueness, and that is why it is called the “Apostrophe” (“apostropher” in French means “to call out”). In this charming little hotel, each one of the 16 rooms is truly unique and evokes literature in one way or another. Thus, you can sleep in the “Sheherazade” room, in the “printing” room, in the “travel diary” room, “calligraphy” room, “newspapers” room, and so on.
There is no suite here, but a few 15m² intimate “balneotherapy” rooms with a bubble bath and chromotherapy in the unpartitioned bathroom. Each “balneo” room has a unique ceiling: blue sky, ladder to the sky, glass roof, Grand Palais’ dome, and stormy sky.
