To stay here is to delicately follow in the footsteps of Juliette Récamier, an intelligent, cultured woman who was as beautiful as she was kind. This darling of the Directoire and the July Monarchy was renowned for her literary salon, which was frequented by the most influential figures of her time, like Chateaubriand and Madame de Staël. Located near the Bon Marché department store, the first Parisian department store to open, in the mid-19th century, the hotel is on a street parallel to the Rue de Sèvres, where the Abbaye-aux-Bois was Juliette's last home.
The 45 rooms illustrate the life of this exceptional woman, sparingly mixing 'powdery-boudoir' style with a contemporary pumped-up colour palette. Your refined instincts will lead you to the hotel's hidden gem, Clos Belle Juliette with its tucked-away open-air terrace where you can enjoy lunch or at teatime, an indulgent snacking menu devised by Flora Mikula. This private, peaceful patio offers the perfect hideaway to bury yourself in a good book after a shopping spree or spa treatment.
