Le Cinq Codet has a wonderful location in the chic 7th (close to the Eiffel Tower and charming Rue Cler) with some of the most stylish rooms in the city. Each has ultra-modern décor and high ceilings for a loft-like feel. This architectural gem from the 1930s (formerly the France Telecom headquarters) plays on its unusual structure – glass and curves – and incorporates those details into wraparound bay windows and sun-drenched duplexes. The rooftop Prestige Suite features an outdoor jacuzzi and terraces with great views of nearby Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower.
