Game of Chess is a lovely home celebrating Second Empire style, ideal for more mature guests with distinguished taste. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming with soft carpet underfoot and comfy furniture to snuggle up on with a good book. Located in the Rive Gauche district which is a safe and secure area, although not particularly near a station, so this home may feel slightly out of the way for those needing a central Parisian locale.
