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.

A hotel that fulfils your needs with friendly and helpful concierge .
Located in the romantic Latin Quarter , on a small street with plenty of small restaurants to try the gastronomic french food, chic small boutiques and walkable distance to the exquisite Bon Marche, Conran concept store and " La Grande Epicerie."

Beautiful hotel in such a nice street!

We stayed here for one week last September. We think the hotel is really nice, it's so beautifully decorated, and we also loved the garden where you can sit and relax.
We stayed in one of the suites, it was really big, with a little eccentric furniture, with two floors and two bathrooms, so we had more than enough space ;)
The location: We normally stay in the 1st Quartier when we go to Paris, but we must admit: this was such a nice district to stay: Le Bon Marche right around the corner, and so many nice little shops. And right in the street where the hotel is, there are several restaurants that are really good! Every day we chose another restaurant, it was really nice to have dinner and just having to walk a few meters back to the hotel.
We would really recommend this hotel!

Amazing Hotel!

My husband, 8 month old son and I stayed here for 1 night and we were so well looked after from the moment we arrived. Valentin, on reception, did all he could to welcome us and settle us in, even helping me park my car in their underground carpark. The hotel was clean, modern and well situated. We loved having an imac in the room and being able to order room service, lovely food cooked by Maxime, and watch a DVD on it whilst our son slept. We also enjoyed the complimentary glass of champagne in the bar served by a very helpful and polite barman, Lucas. All in all an excellent experience!

Amazing service

Only stayed one night in this beautiful hotel. However the service was second to none. I must say that both Luca and maxim were extremely friendly and helpful, due to their friendly attitude and willing to help our family, we were able to enjoy all the services available to us not only in the hotel but in the surrounding area too.. We will return here due to their service provided.

Superb, exceptionally beautiful

What an exceptionally beautiful hotel. Every part of the hotel (rooms restaurant lobby spa pool etc) is exceptionally beautifully decorated and no detail has been missed. Bright colours mixed with traditional colours. Soft comfortable big beds. Good breakfast. We had a few drinks and bites as well in the restaurant/lounge/bar, a good wine, good snacks. Very friendly and helpful staff. In the basement they have been able to create a hammam and pool. Must have been quite a job. Very agreeable to relax at the end of the day after having strolled through Paris during the day. Conveniently located. Walking distance to St Germain St Sulpice Louvre Orsay Place de la Concorde etc etc etc. We had a lovely weekend. We understand this hotel belongs to a group of five other hotels which we understand have also been thoroughly and beautifully reconstructed - next time we probably try one of the others.
