Hotel La Belle Juliette History
Juliette Récamier, more commonly known as Madame Récamier, was a clever woman whose influence strongly marked the political and literary world of the early 19th century. She was known to hold salons (social gatherings) where some of the greatest intellectuals of the time would meet. Beautiful, intelligent and cultured, Juliette was also the lover of the famous French writer Chateaubriand.
Hotel La Belle Juliette
The decoration of Hotel La Belle Juliette has been entrusted to one of the world renowned figures in “home couture”, Anne Gelbard. The 34 rooms and suites of this 4-star hotel were designed to illustrate the life and times of Juliette Récamier. Thus, the first floor is entirely dedicated to Juliette and her great friend Madame de Staël. The second floor is an account of her many trips to Italy, which she visited countless times. The third floor of Hotel la Belle Juliette is dedicated to the French writer François-René de Chateaubriand, her one true love. Last but not least, on the top floor guests will find a thematic décor and ambience reminiscent of the salons she held.
From the generic Classic Rooms and Suites, to the Romantic Deluxe Rooms, attention has been paid to every last detail. The furniture and colors have been carefully and skillfully selected to subtlety remind us of Juliette Récamier´s unusual life. In addition, each room is equipped with an iMac computer allowing guests to surf the internet, listen to music and enjoy TV on demand. In short, this place truly boasts a refined and romantic setting in the heart of Paris.
