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.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/editorialreviews/10772/pgal-70498-1306514805-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The hotel decor is inspired by the life of Juliette Récamier, a flamboyant 19th century icon.”}The four-star hotel tells the story of society icon Juliette Récamier, famous for the literary salons she hosted in her living room in the 19th century. 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.

Our little Paris stay

Hidden little gem in the 6th. A few minutes walk from a metro stops and close to little restos and cafés. The staff was courteous and where always eager to tend to all our queries and needs. This being our first time in Paris we got to experience what everyone was saying about the size of rooms in the hotels.

The room was clean and had quite a few amenities. Nespresso coffee maker, in room safe, large modern shower, comfortable bed, and even a 27” iMac computer that doubled as the TV. Overall a pleasant stay for a memorable trip. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone I know.

A wonderful experience

From the arranged pickup through to drop off and everything in-between was amazing.

The reception staff were brilliant, helpful and knowledgeable.
The bar staff friendly and not too pushy.
The spa although small, was perfect. Our couples massage was a treat.
We ate out so can’t comment on menu but breakfast was well stocked and tasty.

Well done!!
