The hotel was the former residence of Madam de Pompadour and also accommodated Stendhal for 6 months in 1822. The facades at the front and to the rear of the building are monumental and designed in the style of Louis XV. The air-conditioned establishment comprises a total of 36 rooms and welcomes guests in the lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out service, a hotel safe and lift access. The hotel also features a hairdressing salon, a café and bar, a restaurant, car park and both room and laundry services.
The hotel is located in the luxurious area of the 1st district and is to be found in amongst the famous Parisian designer boutiques and very close to the Opera House. The Louvre is only a few steps away. Orly Airport is 20 km, Charles De Gaulle Airport is some 35 km and Beauvais-Tille Airport is approximately 55 km from the hotel.
All rooms are very comfortable and are equipped with a direct dial telephone, a marble bathroom, a shower, a hairdryer, satellite TV, automatic radio, a wake-up-call system, minibar and air conditioning.
An excellent hotel in an excellent location, absolutely superb. They say that in Paris, location is everything, well this could not have been better. Ideally situated between the Louvre ( about 200 yards away ) and The Opera, this was the ideal place to stay when visiting Paris. The Metro station, Pyramides, is also only 200 yards away with easy access to all areas. Between the hotel and the Louvre is a small square, full of local cafes and La Comedie Francaise, one of the main theatres. You could spend hours watching Parisien life go by from any one of these cafes.
The hotel itself was very chic and romantic and excellent quality throughout. The staff were always very helpful and assisted whenever they could.
Breakfasts were typically Parisien, coffee, baguettes, ham and cheese, yogurts, croissants and other other pastries, the ideal way to start the day.
I could not recommend this hotel highly enough and i thank Roomex for getting us a great deal as usual, it all helped to make the perfect break.
