Entirely renovated, this hotel, located a stone’s throw away from the Opera, has demanded the talent of interior designer Marie-Paule Clout, who works at the “Noir Nuance” office.
In duo with the owner of the place, Coralie Legrand, she has designed this 4-star pension as an elegant and friendly family home. Taking up the noble attributes of the 20th century bourgeois style (woodwork, mouldings, fireplaces, parquet flooring) and pretty wallpapers, the hotel creates an ultra warm and cosy atmosphere. With a total of 58 rooms, from the simple to the deluxe and including the duplex room, the hotel surprises you with a different decoration for each room, with distinct decorative details affirming the style and even a terrace for four of its rooms. Another surprise is the unique and magnificent suite, the Cocolili, which stretches over 52m2. Calm and refined, this elegant cocoon, which can accommodate 4 people, has been designed down to the smallest detail for the well-being of guests. One side is intended to be « home-like” with a fireplace, double bed, sofa bed, TV with VOD access, a Marshall speaker, a desk with stationery, a Nespresso machine… Another highlight of the hotel is its wellness area. Head towards the basement, which is home to a long heated swimming corridor with a mirror ceiling, a sauna, a tea room and a fitness room with high-end facilities. There is also a bar and a restaurant where an orange tree flourishes in grace, a small urban oasis where you can come and take a breather at any time of the day. And a gold star goes to the house’s cocktails, long refreshing drinks including the amazing Alain Souchong mixing Jamaican rum and Lapsang Souchong smoked tea. Royal at the bar!
