Vibrant and sophisticated Art Deco-inspired glamour
Word to the wise: There’s a superb wellness area which has a small heated pool (with a counter-current for swimming), relaxation loungers and hammam which you can book to have all to yourself for one hour.
Renowned Italian designers Dimore Studio spent two years restoring this historical building, which dates back to 1791 as the home of the Duc de Choiseul - and what a glorious result they’ve achieved. The sense of heritage has been preserved, but they’ve injected it with serious dose of colourful 70s glamour and Art Deco stylings, mixing reclaimed objets d’art with custom-made furniture and using luxurious materials like dusky red velvets, blue silks and black and white marble.
The hotel’s 25 guestrooms continue the Art Deco accents with brass headboards, Flos lamps, and burnt orange sofas. They’re available in six different designs and colour schemes (sky blue, petrol green, pink, burgundy, mustard yellow and forest green), and feel more like private apartments than your bog standard hotel room.
Head down to the beautiful courtyard where you can enjoy breakfast before heading out to explore the heart of Paris – the hotel faces Opéra Comique and is a stone’s throw from Opéra Garnier, while rue Vivienne with its boutiques and brasseries is just steps away.
