A hidden treasure in the heart of the Grands Boulevards
In the 16th century, this building actually belonged to King Henry IV of France. At the time it was a hunting lodge surrounded by a vast forest on the outskirts of the city. It is a historical jewel, featuring many architectural details from the 19th century, at which time it became a hotel.
In that period, the surrounding area was already asserting its urban identity, its residential character infused with cultural and festive life. The Roaring Twenties’ pursuit of leisure is reflected in the hotel’s decor, signed by Yann Le Coadic, decorator, and Alessandro Scotto, interior designer. Comfort and contemporary elegance meet Art Nouveau and beautiful period features.
Passing by the carved woodwork of the lobby, ride the opulent lift or climb the surrounding marble spiral staircase. Discover your new Parisian pied-à-terre, a quintessential 1930’s apartment, with its central chandelier. Experience the charm of the 1920s in our lounge bar, Le 38.
While peace reigns on the rue de l’Échiquier, you are within easy reach of the Grands Boulevards. This is the beating heart of eastern Paris, where the most memorable evenings and popular shows of the capital are still held today.
