Welcome to the Hôtel
Welcome to the Hôtel
I am passionately 16th arrondissement
The thirty chic, quiet, tasteful rooms of this beautiful Haussmann era-style hotel reflect the reinvigorated dynamism of the 16th arrondissement, one of the most pleasant districts of Paris, which has become the hot new trendsetting destination in the capital. The Eiffel Tower can be reached in 20 minutes on foot !
We can no longer keep a count of the newly fashionable and cool places in this district. Quietly and discreetly, it has undergone a velvet revolution and around the typically Parisian Halles de Passy covered market, we are now seeing a colourful and exciting explosion of fashion and decor shops, health-oriented eateries, designer restaurants, hot trattorias, dreamy pâtisseries and popular cocktail bars. The 16th has even seized the environmental awareness initiative by becoming the greenest district in the capital!
By strolling through the Jardin du Ranelagh and the greenway of the Petite Ceinture former railway line, by way of embassies and consulates, you arrive in less than a quarter of an hour at the Bois de Boulogne - the Parisian version of Central Park – where you’ll find the Fondation Louis Vuitton and the Parc de Bagatelle, as well as world famous sports venues such as the Parc des Princes, the Hippodrome de Longchamp and the Stade Roland-Garros.
There’s certainly no shortage of monuments and other places of interest in the area. The Eiffel Tower illuminates her surroundings every evening, an exceptionally and majestically visible landmark as viewed from the Trocadéro and its cafes. Then there’s the Palais de Chaillot and Palais de Tokyo, where you can enjoy exceptional panoramas of the Seine and which are home to superb museums and excellent restaurants. Not far from there you can discover the Musée Guimet and its extensive collection of Asian art, as well as the temple of music that is the Maison de Radio, not to mention the Fondation Louis Vuitton contemporary art museum and cultural centre, and the Musée Marmottan-Monet with its huge collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works.
Come stroll through narrow streets that still retain their village ambiance, discover or rediscover Art Nouveau, visit the Maison de Balzac writer’s house museum and much more...
Discover the hotel,
There’s a chic and cool movement underway around Passy, La Muette and the Jardin du Ranelagh. Lovers of the quarter who delight in staying here include diplomats, cultural professionals and higher education specialists, as well French and foreign tourists who have fallen under the spell of the timeless and arty DNA of the 16th arrondissement… In harmony with its setting, the hotel has a relaxed, bourgeois and warm ambience complemented by modernist and contemporary works of art, as well as both vintage and designer furniture.
The hotel’s owner was formerly an antique dealer at the Marché Paul Bert of the world-famous Puces de Saint-Ouen flea market and her architect son designed a contemporary decor for her establishment that is totally inspired and in tune with the times. To give our guests ample opportunity to relax, the hotel’s two lounges await with their well-stocked library filled with works on art and literature for the more serious-minded and books and magazines on decoration, cooking and tips on getting the most out of Paris for everyone else! You are welcome to curl up on the soft sofas to enjoy coffee or tea, unless you prefer to sit in the inviting vintage courtyard...
If you like minimalist and contemporary spaces, opt for the quiet and chic attic rooms with their Flos lighting.
On the other floors you have a choice of different styles, depending on whether you select the Classic, Superior or Deluxe categories of rooms. Some have planted balconies or terraces, but all are equipped with furniture chosen with care from among the creations of renowned architects/designers such as Eames, Mies van der Rohe and Starck, tastefully arranged lighting, up-to-the-minute bathrooms with baths or walk-in showers and, everywhere, works of art from the hotel collection.
The air-conditioned rooms are cool in summer and heated in winter by our good old central heating and its cast iron radiators. All the super comfortable beds are made in Brittany, and the welcome products are supplied by Maison Payen (1730) in white olive oil, saffron and midnight jasmine.
Breakfast is prepared using fresh and locally sourced produce and served in the attractive dining room or in your own room and, during warmer weather, in the interior courtyard.
