view web site ›'s insider take:

Le Placide was opened by two affable sisters in October 2006, in what's long been a hotel desert at Sèvres-Babylone, near the Bon Marché department store. Small but beautiful, this property consists of ten rooms packed into a pint-size 19th-century building, plus a split-level back annex. Designer Bruno Borrione—a Philippe Starck collaborator—dressed it in elegant, 1960s-inspired decor and used mirrors and creative lighting to make the most of the subcompact lobby and public areas. Luckily, it's as if all the space were sucked upstairs: The ample rooms run from the street to the patio in back, and bathrooms comfortably fit full-size tubs. Borrione custom-designed almost everything, from chrome door handles and ceramic wastepaper baskets to birdbath-style sinks, bedsteads upholstered in Moroccan leather, and mirrored white armoires (the winter forest–scene wallpaper comes from London's Cole & Son). Book one of two rooms on the fifth floor for a balcony big enough for two. There's air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi (everywhere), minibars and flat-screen TVs with DVD players, room service (until 11 pm), and a quality à la carte breakfast (for $30). The quiet hipness of this place attracts literary and design types and the occasional executive, so hardcore scenesters should chill elsewhere—perhaps at Murano Urban Resort.
