Overview

The Review

La Belle Juliette puts some of Paris’s best at its guests’ fingertips; the hotel’s Left Bank address, a 10-minute walk from the Jardin du Luxembourg, puts them in the thick of things. All around are upscale boutiques, bohemian cafés and some of the best gourmet shops in the City of Lights.

A savvy PR expert centuries before Twitter, beautiful Juliette entertained the greatest minds of the day. Each floor takes a different phase of her life as its theme, examining the zeitgeist of her time, the love she had with Chateaubriand, her sojourn in Italy and her friendship with her meilleure amie, Madame de Staël. The hotel also recreates Juliette’s cultural soirées with events like “Conversations Around the Piano” and “A Fireside Chat and a Harp” — encouraging dialogue between the musicians and the public.

Just as Juliette entrusted her salon’s decoration to the best contemporary artists of the day, the current owners hired top-notch artists to sculpt their new hotel. Designer Anne Gelbard is a darling of fashion brands like Dior for the technique she developed fusing metal leaf to fabric. Gelbard has brought “home couture” to La Belle Juliette with her exacting choice of materials: drapes, custom-made furniture, faux ostrich leather and glittering mosaic tiles in the marbled bathrooms.

Swathed in fine fabrics and accented with vibrant colors, the guestrooms are comfortable and elegant. On the walls there are rare period prints, texts and framed drawings connected to Juliette Récamier. In the lobby, period furniture has been transformed with a contemporary look by artisan woodworker Ludovic Avenel.

With just 34 rooms, the hotel has an intimate feel, and the staff is quick to provide insider city recommendations. Despite its small size, the hotel has a spa with a small relaxation pool and hammam. The Talma restaurant serves Italian fare inspired by Juliette’s time in that country. After you’ve spent a day pounding the cobblestones, the hotel’s garden terrace — decked out with hot pink chairs — really hits the spot.

Perfect for couple

The hotel is rather small but they design everything so perfectly in detail to accomadate the small space. The room is modern and comfortable. I love the neighbourhood around, many restaurants & shops. More upscale and less busy compared to staying in the city ( opera, champ elysee ,etc). 5 min walk to Le Bon Marche which is a plus for me. And a few metro stations around to hop on to go to the centre. I even walk to the Louvre , Notre Dame , Palais Royal from here.

Great Property, Great Location, Great Service

We stayed in a 2-level suite. The bathrooms were excellent, the bed was comfortable, it was quiet and dark, and the view from the windows was of a courtyard area, including the tip of the Eiffel Tower and the top of a church steeple that had a lovely bell during the day. More importantly, the location of this hotel is excellent. The street of the hotel (and surrounding area) contains many great restaurants (including a couple health food restaurants and an organic market) and shops, and is very centrally located for walking or driving to any other significant part of Paris. The staff was very friendly and attentive.
