Le Prince Regent is a high-end complex featuring a wealth of clean cut and tastefully decorated apartments as well as its own subterranean Spa. The 18th-century building has been refurbished to a luxuriously high standard with room sizes ranging from 1-bed studios to whopping 110m² 4-bed spaces that would comfortably accommodate even the most space hungry of families.
Handily located in the haughty 6th arrondissement, patrons will have the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Cinéma du Panthéon, the Odeon Theatre and the Sorbonne in ultra close proximity. Although we can’t see why anyone would choose to be prancing around the streets of one of Paris’ most notoriously snobbish areas—most likely receiving humorously condescending glances from the cream of the intellectual bourgeois—when you could be either relaxing in your room on the free wi-fi or taking time-out in the Spa to allow one of the highly skilled masseurs to sink their dexterous fingers into your aching muscles instead.
The real star in the Prince’s crown though (pardon the obvious pun) is the Spa. The Gallo Roman Thermal baths are a jaw dropping testimony to both the antique heritage of the building and the ingenuity of its refurbishing architects. SPA 28 houses a dimly-lit swimming pool, a hammam, a relaxation area and a stunning bar. Treatments range from fancifully titled 2 hour marathons such as the ‘Chocolate African Dream’ and the ‘Mineral Cruise In Salt From The Dead Sea’, to Polynesian Facial Massages and Shiatsu.
