When you choose to stay here, you are agreeing to stay in a unique place where you should not be surprised to catch yourself whispering. Maybe it is because the soul of Oscar Wilde lives on in the salon, with its romantic subdued lighting? If one cannot exactly borrow the lifestyle of Wilde, who lived within these walls until his death, it is tempting to surrender to its soft comforts.
The beautiful spiral staircase leads to 20 lovely rooms with exquisite materials and smart details. Decorated in bamboo, with Japanese- or Russian-inspired fabrics, each room has a certain frivolity redolent of the dalliances of bygone days. Inspired by Pierre Loti, Marco Polo, Mata Hari, and Queen Hortense, all you need to do is choose the character you like best and stay in their room.
Among the hidden gems of L'Hôtel, be sure to take advantage of the hammam pool set in a stone archway and reserve a table at the Bar, a favourite spot of artists and trendy Parisians. Every first Thursday of the month (except in August), the Jeudi des Beaux-Arts is held, a cocktail party with art and live jazz.
