The Victoria Palace Hotel is an intimate and luxurious four-star property located in the Cherche-Midi neighbourhood between St Germain des Pres and Montparnasse. It has been a landmark of the Left Bank -6th arrondissement- since 1913. Following an extensive renovation in the year 2000, over half of the 62 luxurious guestrooms are either Junior Suites or One-Bedroom Suites. (Originally the hotel had 113 rooms.) The elegant decor reflects the traditional and very Parisian orientation of the hotel: all the walls are covered in stretched fabrics, the bathrooms are of marble, etc... All rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with two telephone lines, desks, flat-screen televisions, powerful hair-dryers, bathrobes and slippers. High-speed internet connections are available anywhere in the hotel. The Victoria Palace Hotel was the Parisian residence of James Joyce and Giorgio De Chirico, it has belonged to the same family since 1936 and this helps to explain its dedication to a tradition of attentive and friendly service.
