   Hotel Dieu Hospitel
How about taking advantage of your visit to Paris to stay at the hospital for a night or two? Here is how that would be possible--and, quite possibly, even very desirable. Hotel Dieu is one of the world's longest-operating hospitals. It first opened in the heart of Paris, on the main island, in... 651. Not to worry – medicine has made some solid progress in the last 1,500 years, and Hotel Dieu is now a cutting-edge hospital. And so, how would you like to spend a night there? Not as a patient, but simply as guest. The hospital sits right on the island where Paris first started, just across from Notre Dame. No other hotel can match that pedigree. What makes this possible is the transformation of a good part of the attic into guest rooms for family members of patients. When these rooms are not used by families, they are, quite pragmatically, made available to anyone for rent. The set-up of the rooms is a bit Spartan, and the prices, at €130 for two, feel slightly inflated in regard to the overall service provided. But the view is splendid, and the location of your residence beats anything the city can offer--especially when you consider that the island hosts, in all, one (tiny) hotel. And the hotel means business--their website even features an English version.
